CASL and PIPEDA
FranNet complies with the Canadian laws known as the Canadian Anti-Spam Law (CASL) and the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA).
An individual must voluntarily and proactively provide information to FranNet or its consultant(s) and the individual must always consent before FranNet collects, uses or discloses that individual's personal information. If the individual consents to providing contact information or consents to receiving electronic information from FranNet or its consultants, the individual may receive communications from FranNet 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 FranNet conducts, by consenting, the individual allows FranNet to share the individual’s name and telephone number with Franchisors and other business partners with which FranNet and the individual may also conduct business. Every reasonable effort will be made by FranNet and/or its consultants to alert the individual that FranNet is sharing only their name and telephone number as a referral to a third party. Further, FranNet 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. FranNet 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.
FranNet will maintain a record of the individual’s contact information, including the date which the individual originally consented to receive information from FranNet or its consultants. At any time, the individual may opt-out of communications from FranNet 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.
