Some states do not allow the exclusion of implied warranties or limitation of liability for incidental or consequential damages, which means that some of the above limitations may not apply. In these states, each party’s liability will be limited to the greatest extent permitted by law.

The Service is provided to You “AS IS” and “AS AVAILABLE” and with all faults and defects without warranty of any kind.

This automatically collected information is used by us to measure the number of visitors to the different areas of our Web Site and to assist us in making our Web Site more useful to visitors. This includes analyzing these logs periodically to determine the traffic through our servers, the number of pages served, and the demand for certain areas of our Web Site and topics of interest. These logs may be preserved indefinitely by us, used at any time and in any way deemed necessary by us, and disclosed to any third party without your knowledge or consent. We do not link this automatically collected data to any personally identifiable information.
Voluntary Collections: As part of our normal business practice, we use our Web Site to facilitate communication with the general public, ZIPS business customers, interested franchise candidates, and existing Franchisees. In doing so, it is often necessary to collect personal information as part of that process. For example, if you are an interested franchise candidate, we may ask that you submit a Consideration Request Form stating your name, address, telephone number, email address, your desired franchise location, financial information, and other similar personal information, so that we may quickly and accurately respond to your inquiry. If you are a potential customer seeking information about ZIPS services or information about a Franchisee in a particular area, you may obtain that information by entering your zip code. You may schedule an appointment for services by providing your name, address, e-mail address, telephone number, and a description of the services requested.
We may transfer your personal information to a successor entity or individual upon a merger, consolidation, or other reorganization or sale of substantially all assets of the applicable business, in which we participate.
E-mail: By sending an electronic mail message to us, for example, by sending an e-mail requesting information on becoming a Franchisee of ours, you may be sending us personally identifiable information. In these cases, we may retain the information as long as necessary to accurately respond to your request. Please be aware that e-mail is not necessarily secure from interception or misdirection. For your own protection you may want to communicate sensitive information to us using a method other than e-mail.
Testimonials: Our Web Site offers customers the opportunity to submit a testimonial regarding their experience with a Franchisee and the ZIPS Cleaners services they have been provided (a “Testimonial”). We may exploit and distribute information from any Testimonial or Post that you submit, throughout the world, in any manner, in perpetuity, at our sole discretion, without any compensation to you or any other party. In particular, please be advised that we may publish any Testimonial on our Web Site and in our other advertising materials.

ACCESS TO PERSONAL INFORMATION.
The security of any personal information that you provide to us is important to us. We use generally accepted industry standards to protect any personal information submitted to us by you; however, no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure.
