At Fran5.com we only use personal information you provide in the way we specify when we collect it. We are committed to providing our clients and users with exceptional service. As providing this service involves the collection, use and disclosure of some personal information, protecting your personal information is one of our highest priorities.

We adhere to the guidelines set forth by the Personal Information Protection Act (PIPA), PIPA, which came into effect on January 1, 2004 and sets out the ground rules for how businesses and not-for-profit organizations may collect, use and disclose personal information.

Our privacy commitment includes ensuring the accuracy, confidentiality, and security of your personal information and allowing you to request access to, and correction of, your personal information.

Scope of this Privacy Policy
This Personal Information Protection Policy applies to Fran5.com and its subsidiaries, The Seagus Corporation, Robert Edwards and Joe Fedorchuk.

Collecting Personal Information
Unless the purposes for collecting personal information are obvious and you voluntarily provide your personal information for those purposes, we will communicate the purposes for which personal information is being collected, either orally or in writing, before or at the time of collection.

We will only collect personal information that is necessary to fulfill the following purposes:

Collecting Information

1. To assess the suitability of our services for you;

Subject to certain exceptions (e.g., the personal information is necessary to provide the service or product, or the withdrawal of consent would frustrate the performance of a legal obligation), clients can withhold or withdraw their consent for the Fran5 Group and its affiliates to use their personal information in certain ways. A client’s decision to withhold or withdraw their consent to certain uses of personal information may restrict our ability to provide a particular service or franchise. If so, we will explain the situation to assist the client in making the decision.
