When you request information with Cookie Cutters.com, we collect and store information including your name, address, phone number, fax number, e-mail address, listing selections, available capital, timeframe to begin, and other demographic and profile data necessary to enable our business relationship. We use the information collected only for the franchise consulting services we offer to better serve you and match you to the right franchise. Where appropriate, we may share information with our business partners and consultants. Our site may also contain links to external internet sites which may not be operated by us and may be subject to different privacy policies.
By using the Sites, you signify your assent to this Statement. If you do not agree with the terms of this Statement, please do not visit our Sites. We reserve the right, in our sole discretion, to change, modify, add, or remove portions from this Statement at any time. Your continued use of our Site following the posting of changes to these terms shall be deemed your consent to any such changes. Such changes will be evidenced by a change in the effective date for this Statement set forth above.
An individual must voluntarily and proactively provide information to Cookie Cutters or its consultant(s) and the individual must always consent before Cookie Cutters collects, uses or discloses that individual's personal information. If the individual consents to providing contact information or consents to receiving electronic information from Cookie Cutters or its consultants, the individual may receive communications from Cookie Cutters or its consultants. The communications may include printed or electronic newsletters, email communications, invitations to visit the Sites, requests to conduct a personal franchise assessment, advertising and marketing materials, invitations to events and/or meetings, or social media interactions.
Further, due to the nature of the business Cookie Cutters conducts, by consenting, the individual allows Cookie Cutters to share the individual’s name and telephone number with Franchisors and other business partners with which Cookie Cutters and the individual may also conduct business. Every reasonable effort will be made by Cookie Cutters and/or its consultants to alert the individual that Cookie Cutters is sharing only their name and telephone number as a referral to a third party. Further, Cookie Cutters will direct the third party and/or other business partners to gain additional consent for such parties from the individual before sending any Commercial Electronic Message. Cookie Cutters is not responsible for ensuring those third parties collect consent from the individual for Commercial Electronic Messages in a manner appropriate for the law.
If the individual’s information collected needs to be updated or changed, the old information is deleted and new information must be voluntarily submitted.
Cookie Cutters will maintain a record of the individual’s contact information, including the date which the individual originally consented to receive information from Cookie Cutters or its consultants. At any time, the individual may opt-out of communications from Cookie Cutters by selecting the “Opt-out” option on any of the electronic communications, and all communications to the individual will cease.
All information collected is stored on secure servers.
