Introduction:  Perkins Franchising (Perkins Franchising) understands the importance of protecting the privacy of its website users.  For that reason, Perkins Franchising has adopted this privacy policy (this “Policy”) in order to inform you of its policies regarding personal information Perkins Franchising collects about you through our engagement with you and through our services, programs and products, including, our website perkinsfranchising.com (the “Website”), the Perkins Franchising mobile app (the “Mobile App”).

This Privacy Policy also applies to the practices of Perkins Franchising’s wholly owned subsidiaries, except that if such a subsidiary publishes its own privacy policy, that policy will instead apply to the practices of that subsidiary.  It does not apply to information collected by us offline or through other means or by any third party.  Please read this policy carefully to understand our practices and policies regarding your information and how we will treat it.  If you do not agree with our policies or procedures, you have the option not to use this website.  By accessing, using or interacting with this website, you agree to this Privacy Policy.  This Privacy Policy may change from time to time (see the section entitled “Changes to Our Privacy Policy” below).  Your continued use of this website after we make changes to this Privacy Policy is deemed to be acceptance of those changes, so please check the policy periodically for updates.

(Each computer that connects to the Internet is assigned a unique number, an IP address, for identification purposes). The log file does not capture a visitor’s email address.

In some instances, Perkins Franchising may also collect information from third parties, upon whom we rely to provide services. We use both business partners and service providers, such as payment processors and analytics providers, to perform services on our behalf. Some of these partners may have access to information about you that we may or may not otherwise have and may share some or all of this information with us.

We require that our service providers only use PII in connection with the services they perform for us, including services performed in fulfilling the purpose for which an individual provided PII.

In all instances of disclosure of individual information, including PII, to third parties, Perkins Franchising endeavors to require such third parties to abide by privacy policies and practices that are consistent with those discussed in this Privacy Policy, but Perkins Franchising is not responsible for the privacy practices of those third parties.  Perkins Franchising encourages individuals to review the applicable privacy policies of all third parties to which they may be directed in connection with Perkins Franchising’s website and social media pages.
