Cookies are also used to track the number of visitors to the site. We do not use cookies to collect any information other than just described. Note: A cookie file contains unique information a web site can use to track such things as passwords, lists of pages you’ve visited, and the date when you last looked at a specific page or to identify your session at a particular web site. We do not use cookies for any of these purposes.
  2. If you send us an electronic mail message with a question or comment that contains personally identifying information, or fill out a form that e-mails us this information, or make a comment while on the website, we will only use the personally-identifiable information to respond to your request and analyze trends. We may redirect your message to another government agency or person who is in a better position to answer your question. We will collect the browser, type, version, platform and user agent information.
  3. If you enter contact information in the course of ordering items from the site, this information will only be sent to those parties requiring it for delivery, unless you choose to receive additional Texas travel information. If you choose to receive additional information, your address may occasionally be made available to other Texas travel industry organizations.

All personal address information will be redacted from any shared user generated content.
  7. This site provides integrations with third-party websites, such as those of Facebook, Pinterest and Twitter. While on these sites, we may collect information about you.

We accept no responsibility or liability for any of the material contained on those servers or the accuracy or legality of information contained on other websites. We recommend that you check the privacy statement of other sites you visit before providing any personal information.
