We will use reasonable efforts to see that all information, identifying and otherwise, submitted to us by users, remains private and is used only for the purposes for which you submit it to us and as set forth in this policy.

Furthermore, at FFC we believe our online users have a right to know what information we collect when you visit our Website. This Online Privacy Policy outlines the types of information we gather about you, how we gather your information, how we use it, with whom we might share it, the means by which we keep it secure and the choices you have about the information you choose to share with us.

Please note that the Website may contain links to other sites not connected with FFC that that we believe you might find useful. The operators of such linked sites may sometimes gather information from you. We wish to caution you that you must take the responsibility for investigating, and must rely upon, the privacy policies of linked sites.

What Information Do We Collect and How Do We Collect It?

When you, as a potential franchisee, wish to communicate with us about opportunities as a franchisee you are asked to fill out our Confidential Profile Questionnaire and submit it to us through the website. We collect the information you submit in connection with your interest in becoming a franchisee. This information includes the information on the Confidential Profile Questionnaire.

In addition, because of the way that World Wide Web communication standards work, when you arrive at or leave the Website, we automatically receive the Web addresses of the site that you came from or are going to. We also may collect information on which pages of the Website you visit while you are on the Website, the type of browser you use and the times you access the Website. Information referred to in this paragraph is called “Website Traffic Information”.

We make the information you submit, (except Website Traffic Information), available to others for the primary purpose for which the information was collected, namely, communicating with you about opportunities as a franchisee. We may use your name, address, e-mail address or other information you submit to contact you about matters relevant to the reasons you submitted the information.

FFC does not share personally identifiable information with any nonaffiliated third parties other than for the primary purpose for which the information was collected, except with your express permission, or in the limited circumstances described below:

We may disclose information that we believe in good faith is appropriate to cooperate in investigations of fraud or other illegal activity, or to conduct investigations of violations of our Terms of Use. This means that if we conduct a fraud investigation and conclude that someone who has submitted information to us has engaged in deceptive practices, we may give that person’s contact information to interested parties who request it.

We may disclose information in response to a subpoena, warrant, court order, levy, attachment, order of a court-appointed receiver or other comparable legal process, including subpoenas from private parties in a civil action.

We may disclose information to your agent or legal representative (such as the holder of a power of attorney that you grant, or a guardian appointed for you). We may share aggregated statistical data with others for public relations, marketing or other purposes. Such data will not, however, be tied to personally identifiable information.

FFC may use Website Traffic Information to try to understand your preferences better and to manage the load on our servers, so as to improve our service and your experience on the Website. FFC may also compile statistical information not tied to personally identifiable information from Website Traffic Information to assist us in our marketing efforts.

In the event all, substantially all, or a part of FFC’s business were sold, transferred, or disposed of (in accordance with legal proceedings, by merger or otherwise), user information, including identifying information, may, of course, become available to the purchaser or transferee and would be subject to its privacy policies which may be different from this policy.
