PRIVACY POLICY

The information potential franchisees provide Tifa during the franchising process is for the use of Tifa management only and is never shared, distributed or discussed with anyone outside of Tifa. However, certain non-personal information, including IP addresses, is recorded by the standard operation of Tifa Foods International, Inc. or Tifa, Inc. (collectively Tifa) servers. We may also automatically collect information about your use of our services, including the type of operating system in use (e.g., MacIntosh, Windows), the type of browser you use (e.g., Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari and Chrome), access times, pages viewed and the page you visited before navigating to our services.

We do not require you to provide any information related to your racial origin, religious beliefs or sexual orientation. The types of information we may collect include name, postal address, email address, zip code, phone number, net worth, credit score, birthday (month and day only), legal age, prior work experience and employment status. We collect information when you engage in the franchisee questionnaire or contact us through email with any questions.

If your personally identifiable information changes (such as your zip code or phone number), or if you no longer wish to continue the franchising process, we will provide a way to correct, update or remove your personal data provided to us. This can usually be done by contacting us using the contact information found on the Tifa Franchising, LLC website.

If you complete a franchisee questionnaire with us, or request information regarding such opportunities, we collect personal information that you provide in connection with your request for information and/or to evaluate your application for employment with us. We may also collect personal information about you from third parties to supplement, update or verify your information, and/or to process your application for consideration as our employee. Applicable law may require that you authorize a third party to share your personal information with us before we can acquire it.

If we decide to change our privacy policy, we will post those changes on our Website so our users are always aware of what information we collect, how we use it and under what circumstances, if any, we disclose it. If we decide to use personally identifiable information in a manner different from that stated at the time it was collected, we will notify users by way of an email and by updating this policy. Users will have a choice as to whether or not we use their information in this different manner. We will use information in accordance with the privacy policy under which the information was collected.

Cookies

A cookie is a piece of data that is stored on a visitor’s hard drive while they are visiting this website. Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information. At Tifa Franchising, LLC, a short-lived cookie, often referred to as a session cookie, is used to identify one unique visitor from another during the time that visitor is actively linked to our server. This enables the visitor to input their information once and have the information appear later during the enrollment process. By using a session cookie on our website, you would not have to enter a password more than once, thereby saving time while on our website. No personally identifiable information is stored on the cookie. The cookie expires and is deleted from the visitor’s computer as soon as they close their browsers.
