FranchisesForSale.com LLC recognizes the importance of protecting the privacy of all information provided by users of this website (this “Site”). We are serious about your privacy.
Collection and Use of Non-Personal Information. Although you need not submit your personal information to us to view the content of this Site, we may automatically collect non-personal information from your computer by using “cookies”. A “cookie” is a small piece of data stored on a user's computer by a web browser to make web browsing more efficient or relevant to the user. This data may include the date, time, browser type, navigation history and IP address of all visitors to our Site. We use this data for system administration and trend analysis. This data also enables us to audit general customer preferences and demographics; however, this data does not enable us to identify you personally. We may share this composite information with our advertisers and business affiliates.
Collection and Use of Personal Information. From time to time, you may decide to voluntarily submit personal information, including your name, physical address, email address, telephone numbers, credit card numbers and other personal information, in order to purchase or obtain goods or services, participate in surveys or contests, request information from our advertisers, participating franchisors or affiliates, and/or otherwise make use of one or more features of the Site. You may also be asked to register to make use of one or more features of the Site. Your use of the Site, and your disclosure of your personal information, is completely voluntary. Your information will be used only for the purpose submitted (subject to the security warning provided below), unless you agree to allow us to share your information with advertisers, survey or contest sponsors, franchisors and/or other third parties (see “Permissions” below).
Referrals. If you choose to refer us to a friend by providing us with your friend's name, e-mail address and/or interests, we will use this data to provide information about our services and/or our franchisors, affiliates and advertisers. Your friend may subsequently choose to opt out of further communications from us and/or our franchisors, affiliates and advertisers.
Customer Support. From time to time, you may decide to voluntarily request service, support or give feedback concerning our Site. We may forward these communications from you to third party agents or affiliates, as needed, to appropriately respond to your concern or request. We may retain e-mails and other support information and feedback sent to us for our internal administrative purposes, and to help us to serve customers better. Please note that complaints, comments, blog entries, letters to the editor and similar submissions may be published, omitted or removed from the Site, if and as we choose.
Updating Personal Information. If the personal, identifiable information that you have submitted to us is incorrect or changes, please follow the directions on our Site or contact Customer Service to correct or update your personal data.
Permissions. If you voluntarily submit personal data to us in order to request information, and/or if you authorize us to disclose your personal data to franchisors, affiliates or advertisers for marketing or other purposes, you may subsequently change your preferences or otherwise cancel your previous requests, by following the directions on our Site or by contacting Customer Service. Please allow sufficient time for your request to take effect. You may continue to receive information and contacts until such time as your request takes effect.
Security. We use reasonable precautions to protect your submitted personal information and to store it securely. Sensitive information that is transmitted to us online (such as your credit card number) is encrypted for secure transmission. In addition, access to all personal information submitted to us, not just sensitive information, is restricted. Finally, the servers on which we store personal, identifiable information are kept in a reasonably secure environment. We follow reasonable, industry standard precautions and protocols, but such precautions and protocols are not necessarily foolproof or infallible in the event of an attack, terrorist activity or a powerful act of nature.
Links. Our Site may contain links to other websites. We are not responsible for the privacy practices or content of such other websites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our Site and to read the privacy statements of each such other website.
