A "cookie" is a small text file that a website can place on your computer's hard drive in order, for example, to collect information about your activities on the website or to make it possible for you to use an online "shopping cart" to keep track of the items that you wish to purchase. The cookie transmits this information back to the website's computer, which generally speaking, is the only computer that can read it. If you want to know if a cookie is being placed on your computer, or to prevent it from happening, you can set your browser to warn you when a website attempts to place a cookie on your computer.
We use this information to measure the number of visitors to the different sections of our website, and to help us make our website more useful.
We collect personally identifiable information when you submit information about yourself, such as through the on-line forms, so that we may contact you. When you ask for us to contact you through our on-line forms, we ask for information such as your name, telephone number (daytime and evening), e-mail address, address (including city and state) and any other information that you elect to submit to us. We use this personally identifiable information to answer any questions that you might have concerning franchise opportunities, any of our products and services and to contact you about franchise opportunities, new products and services.
All information that you submit to us (including through any on-line forms) is stored securely offline.
If you send us an e-mail or any information that you submit through an on-line form, you should know that e-mail or on-line forms are not necessarily secure against interception. So, if your communication includes sensitive information like your bank account, charge card, or social security number, please contact us by telephone or postal mail rather than e-mail or on-line forms.
If you would like to update or change the information that you have submitted to us (such as your address or telephone number), please contact us and we will be more than happy to accommodate your request.
