Voluntary Collections: As part of our normal business practice, we use our Web Site to facilitate communication with the general public, purchasers of our products and services, interested franchise candidates, and existing Franchisees.  In doing so, it is often necessary to collect personal information as part of that process.  For example, if you are an interested franchise candidate, we may ask that you submit a Request for Consideration form stating your name, address, telephone number, email address, fax number, age, marital status, spouse and dependent information, employment history, criminal history, professional affiliations, experience, anticipated plans for your franchise operation, information regarding any partners, business and personal goals, financial information, and/or other similar personal information, so that we may quickly and accurately respond to your inquiry.  If you are a parent or legal guardian requesting information about FasTracKids services or a particular franchise location, you may submit that request by providing your name, address, e-mail address, telephone number, and any other information we request.  If you are a parent or legal guardian of a student currently enrolled in our courses seeking to access the parent portions of our Web Site, we may ask for your name, your child’s name, other information regarding you and your child, and information regarding your child’s course participation, in order to verify your child’s enrollment or for other purposes.  If you are a current Franchisee of ours, we may ask for certain information regarding you and your business to verify your right to access the Franchise Forum or for other purposes.  All personal information submitted by you is completely voluntary. If you choose to submit any personal information to us through our Web Site by completing forms requesting personal information and pressing the “submit” or similar buttons, such information may be shared within our organization, which includes our owners, officers, directors and certain necessary employees, representatives and agents.  We may use this voluntarily provided information for purposes of responding to your immediate request, verifying your authority to enter certain portions of our Web Site, and for future contact and communication with you, including sending you promotional materials and other items.  We may store any personal information that you provide to us solely through our Web Site in a secure location, until such time as you request that we delete your personal information as set forth in the “Access to Personal Information” section below or until such time as we deem such personal information no longer useful in our normal business operations.  Our deletion or disposal of your personal information will be performed in a manner to insure the utmost protection of your personal information.
