McDonald's Corporation Internet
Site Privacy Policy 

McDonald's Corporation ("McDonald's") is pleased to provide information to all of its customers about its web sites. We want to make our sites as fun and helpful as possible while respecting your privacy. Please be assured that McDonald's uses its best efforts to protect the privacy of its on-line visitors. McDonald's uses "cookies" (i.e., pieces of information that a web site transfers to an individual's hard drive for record-keeping purposes) only to obtain non-personal information in order to improve your on-line experience. For example, as most web sites do, we track the total number of visitors to our site on an anonymous aggregate basis. We do not associate cookie information with personal information. 

McDonald's only gathers personally identifiable data, such as first and last names, addresses, and email addresses, when voluntarily submitted by a web site visitor. For example, personally identifiable information may be collected in order to respond to a request for information concerning our direct stock purchase plan, to get your feedback on our site and our products or to enter you in one of our contests or sweepstakes. This information is used solely by McDonald's or other entities that provide technical or fulfillment services to McDonald's for internal purposes, like improving the site or to fulfill your requests; it is not sold or transferred to third parties. McDonald's does not send unsolicited email. McDonald's, however, may respond to email it receives. 

We may offer links to other sites. If you visit one of these linked sites, you should review their privacy policy and other policies. We are not responsible for the policies of other companies. 

McDonald's reserves the right to use or disclose any information as needed to satisfy any law, regulation or legal request, to protect the integrity of the site, to fulfill your requests, or to cooperate in any law enforcement investigation or an investigation on a matter of public safety. 

McDonald's is very sensitive to privacy issues. We are proud of our longtime commitment to our customers. We are especially careful in any communications with one of our most treasured customers - children and families. That is why we offer many features, like games and coloring books, which do not require a child to provide any personal information. We collect only limited personal information from children 12 and under (like their email addresses) to respond to their online requests. For example, we may collect a child's email address in order to send the child a screen saver, but we promptly delete the email address from our system. Personal information collected from children on this site is used solely by McDonald's or other entities that provide technical or fulfillment services to McDonald's for internal purposes like improving the site, or to fulfill requests; it is not sold or transferred to third parties. We do not associate cookie data with personal information about children. McDonald's will not condition a child's participation in any on-line activity on the child's disclosure of more personal information than is reasonably necessary to participate in that activity. 

From time to time, it may be necessary for McDonald's to change this privacy policy, so we suggest that you check here periodically. Rest assured, however, that any changes will not be retroactively applied and will not alter how we handle previously collected information.
