5) How do we use your personal information?

We use your personal information only in accordance with the purposes for which it was collected, and we keep your personal information only as long as needed to fulfil these purposes or any legal or government requirements.

In order to better service you and fulfil our stated purposes, we may disclose your personal information to third parties who are legally or contractually obligated to keep such information private. For example, we may disclose your information to a franchisee that will be providing you with the product or service you request. We may provide any personal information you voluntarily provide to us to third parties who provide products, information, or services which we believe you may be interested in purchasing or obtaining.

We may disclose personal information to another party with whom we enter into a corporate transaction, such as a merger, consolidation, acquisition, or asset purchase, or to a third party pursuant to a subpoena, other form of legal process, or a request on behalf of any local, provincial, federal governmental department or agency.

In doing so, we will make reasonable efforts to ensure that these third parties only use the personal information for our stated purposes, but we shall not be responsible nor liable for their personal information handling or dissemination practices.

6) How do we protect your personal information and keep it up-to-date?

We take all measures we believe are reasonably appropriate to provide the secure transmission of your personal information from your computer to our servers through Our Site and safeguard your personal information against its unauthorized access, disclosure, copying, modification or misuse.

We use Secured Sockets Layer (SSL) technology for certain transactions on portions of Our Site to protect the transfer of personal information through Our Site.

Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be assured to be absolutely secure. As a result, while we attempt to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of any information transmitted over the Internet. Once we receive your information, we take steps that we believe are reasonably appropriate to protect the security of your data.

We have implemented numerous security features to prevent the unauthorized release of or access to personal information. We require any third parties who handle your personal information to protect it in a manner consistent with our own internal standards and, at a minimum, as required by law. Once your personal information is no longer required to fulfil our stated purposes, we take proper measures to destroy, erase or anonymize it in a manner that continues to maintain your privacy. Also, employees responsible for operation and maintenance of Our Site are asked to sign a non-disclosure agreement.

Please be advised, however, that the confidentiality of any communication or material transmitted to or from us via Our Site or e-mail cannot be guaranteed. Accordingly, we are not responsible for the security of information transmitted via the Internet. Instead of communicating with us via e-mail or the Internet, you can contact us by mail at:
