COLLECTING YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
Franchise2Sell collects such information from you as is necessary to conduct business with you. As you use our Site you may provide us with two types of information; Personal Information you knowingly chose to disclose that is collected on an individual basis; and Site use information collected on an aggregate basis as you and others browse our Site.
Personal Information is information about you which can be used to identify you. For example, your name, address and e-mail address are the types of Personal Information you may knowingly provide to us through your use of the Site. You may also provide to us Personal Information in the body of an e-mail message which you send to us.
Site Use Information is information we gather through cookies and Web server logs. Like other commercial Web sites, this Site utilises cookies and Web servers to collate information on the date and time of visits, the pages viewed, time spent at our Site and the Sites' visited just before and just after your visit to this Site. All information collected in this way is aggregated and is not associated with you as an individual.
USE OF YOUR INFORMATION
We collect your Personal Information for a number of reasons including so that so we may transact with you (including authorised financial transaction with you and your associated service providers), identify you as the product owner, develop our products and services, administer our business activities, provide you with customer service, obtain your feedback, tell you about any of our products and services and fulfil legal and regulatory obligations (including our accountant and tax obligations under the law).
Information we collect may also be used to inform you of changes to our Site, any new services we are providing and special offers we think you will find valuable.
Fulfilling Your Orders
When ordering products and services, you must provide contact information (such as name and delivery address) and financial information (such as credit-card number and expiration date if you are using this payment method, and account details if using other electronic payment methods). Franchise2Sell uses this information to fulfil your order and bill you. If we have trouble processing an order, this contact information is also used to get in touch with you to resolve the problem.
Registration of Product
Franchise2Sell asks you to register each product or service you purchase with relevant personal and business details. Registration ensures that only you - and no unauthorised persons - receive upgrades and special offers.
To facilitate the provision of the transactional service for which you have applied Franchise2Sell is required to pass information you have provided to its service providers.
Registration links your Franchise2Sell product and version to your contact details. This allows our support consultants to provide you with quality advice relevant to your particular situation when you call/contact Franchise2Sell for customer support. If software or documentation needs to be emailed or posted to you, the consultant has all the information needed to ensure fast service.
