We collect two types of information about users:
Non-personally identifiable information (information that does not identify a specific individual): When visitors use the Services, we collect and aggregate information indicating, among other things, which pages were visited, the order in which they were visited, and which links were "clicked." Collecting such information involves the collection and logging of IP addresses, operating system, and browser software used by each user of the Services. Although such information is not personally identifiable, we can determine from the IP address a visitor's Internet Service Provider and the geographic location of his or her point of connectivity.
The non-personally identifiable information we collect helps us identify the most popular areas of our Website and determine the effectiveness of our promotional activities. In addition, we may disclose some of this information to advertisers to inform them of the number of people who have seen and/or clicked through their advertisements.
Third Party Advertisers
Please note that our advertisers and their designees, as well as other third parties, may collect information about you through cookies or other technologies when they serve advertisements through the Services or when you visit their web site(s).
Links to Other Sites
Personally identifiable information: In certain areas of the Services, such as those in which you a profile, create a new account, or enter Franchisesouq-sponsored contests or promotions, we may request that you provide us with certain personally identifiable information, such as your e-mail address, name, profession, etc. We will, in such situations, seek to identify which informational items are required and which are optional. When a user chooses to create a Franchisesouq advertisement we may also collect billing information.
The Services are not available to persons under 16 years of age. We do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from persons under 16 years of age.
Please note that we cannot control the acts of users of the Services. All members and visitors should be aware that, when they disclose personally identifiable information in a profile or other medium, the information may be collected and used by others to send that person unsolicited email from other parties outside Franchisesouq.
We encourage you to periodically review this page for the latest information on our privacy practices.
Please familiarize yourself with the different ways we use the information we gather. Keep in mind that, while Franchisesouq encourages all third parties involved, including but not limited to its advertisers, to adhere to our policies regarding the privacy of our visitors and members and to otherwise handle personally identifiable information in a responsible manner, we cannot and do not assume any responsibility for any actions or omissions of third parties, including the manner in which they use information received either from Franchisesouq or independently.
Please note that Franchisesouq reserves the right to disclose information submitted by or concerning any visitor or member as we reasonably feel is necessary to protect our systems or business. We may also disclose your personally identifiable information as required by law, such as to comply with any legal process, when we believe in good faith that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights, protect your safety or the safety of others, investigate fraud, or respond to a government request. We cooperate with law enforcement agencies in identifying those who may be using our servers or Services for illegal activities. We also reserve the right to report any suspected illegal activity to law enforcement for investigation or prosecution, or to suspend or terminate your membership in connection with any suspected illegal or infringing activity or if you are in violation of our Terms and Conditions of Use Agreement or other published guidelines.
If Franchisesouq is involved in a merger, acquisition, or sale of all or a portion of its assets, you will be notified via email and/or a prominent notice on our Website of any change in ownership or uses of your personally identifiable information, as well as any choices you may have regarding your personally identifiable information. Franchisesouq reserves the right to assign, sell, license, or otherwise transfer to a third party your personally identifiable information in connection with an assignment, sale, joint venture, or other transfer or disposition of any portion or all of Franchisesouq's or its affiliated entities' assets or stock.
If you would like to have your personally identifiable information removed from Franchisesouq's database, or would like to correct an error in such information, please contact us at info@Franchisesouq.com, and we will use reasonable efforts to comply with your request. Keep in mind, however, that there will be residual information that will remain within Franchisesouq databases, access logs, and other records, which may or may not contain such personally identifiable information. The residual information will not be used for commercial purposes; if you have provided more than one email address to our service, you may continue to be contacted, unless you request to unsubscribe each email address you may have provided.
