When you contact Ogalo, either from our Contact page or Franchising inquiry page, we understand and respect your privacy and confidentiality. Therefore, we do not share any information, including but not limited to your name, email address, phone number, or message submitted to us. For messages referring to any of our franchisees, like compliments or complaints, we may share details of your message with the particular franchisee stated in your message.
We may retain your information for the purposes of contacting you to confirm a message, verifying a franchising application, or to follow up on a message regarding a franchisee or store you may have stated in your message.
We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to third parties your personally identifiable information. This does not include trusted third parties who assist us in operating our website, conducting our business, or servicing you, so long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential (e.g., web hosting service providers). We may also release your information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce our site policies, or protect our or others’ rights, property, or safety.
When submitting a Franchising inquiry, we collect personally identifiable information such as your name, email address, phone number, previous business experience, as well as other information that supports your inquiry. Should we proceed with your inquiry, we may require information regarding previous employers, employment references, criminal history, financial status, asset holdings, liabilities, business history, family status, credit ratings, and any other information about you that may lead to a successful application. This information may be used to verify your claims with the relevant authorities, financial institutions, or previous employers. However, it will not be shared, nor given to any parties outside of Ogalo and you, the applicant.
