Privacy Policy

This privacy policy discloses how PFG Ventures, L.P., collects, protects, uses and shares information gathered about you on www.proforma.comwww.onlyproforma.com and the Proforma-branded franchise portal sites (“the Proforma® websites”).

While visiting the Proforma® websites you may be asked to provide information that personally identifies you. This information is gathered on a voluntary basis to better serve you.

You may choose not to provide personal information and you will still be able to visit most of the Proforma® websites but you will not be able to use the web-based forms to request information. PFG Ventures, L.P., is the sole owner of the information collected on the Proforma® websites. We collect personal information at several different points on our website. The following items are a sample of areas where personal information is required in order for us to assist you:

  • Contact Us / Help form
  • Subscription to the Proforma® email newsletter
  • Contact us requests via forms or email addresses
  • Calls to our toll-free or other Proforma® business telephone numbers

Information You Provide

For the areas of the Proforma ® websites where the collection of personally identifiable information is necessary, you will know because you will have to fill out a form. Depending on the form, we may need to collect a variety of business, personal, and financial information. Proforma® does not provide your information to third parties. You may unsubscribe from all Proforma® mailing lists at any time.

Information Collected Using Technology

We may collect some information about you using technology, so it may not be readily apparent to you that it is being collected. For instance, when you come to our site your IP address is collected so that we know where to send information you are requesting. An IP address is often associated with the place from which you enter the Internet like your ISP (Internet service provider), your company, or your school. This information is not personally identifiable. We may use information collected through technology to make our sites more interesting and useful to you. We normally don’t combine this type of information with personally identifiable information. However, we may combine this information with personally identifiable information to identify a visitor in order to enforce compliance with our terms of service or to protect our service, site, customers, or others.

Cookies

Cookies are pieces of information that a website sends to your computer while you are viewing the Proforma® websites. These pieces of information allow the website to remember important information that will make your use of that site more useful. Internet companies use cookies for a variety of purposes. We use cookies to help improve your future visits.

You can choose to have your computer warn you each time a cookie is being sent, or you can choose to turn off all cookies. You do this through your browser (like Netscape Navigator or Internet Explorer) settings. Each browser is a little different, so look at your browser Help menu to learn the correct way to modify your cookies. If you turn cookies off, you won’t have access to many features that make your experience on our website more efficient and some of our services will not function properly.

We may provide links to 3rd party websites on the Proforma® websites. We are not responsible for the content or information collection practices of those pages.

      1. when required by law to comply with a judicial proceeding, a court order, or legal process served on us;

      3. to protect users of our sites and our sites from fraudulent or abusive use.

 

Changes

In the future, we may modify this privacy policy. If we decide to change our privacy policy, we will post those changes to this privacy statement. We will use information in accordance with the privacy policy under which the information was collected. However, if we are going to use personal information in a manner different from that stated at the time of collection we will notify users by e-mail. Users will have a choice as to whether or not we use their information in this different manner. However, if users have opted out of all communications with the site, or deleted/deactivated their account, then they will not be contacted, nor will we use their personal information in this new manner.
