We are committed to protecting your privacy. This Privacy Policy relates to the use of any personal information you provide to us through EBA Consulting Limited websites and its partner websites (where this policy appears in relation to the collection of information).

By accepting the Privacy Policy and the Terms and Conditions during registration or the sending of an enquiry, you expressly consent to our collection, storage, use and disclosure of your personal information as described in this Privacy Policy. This Privacy Policy is effective upon acceptance for new users and is otherwise effective on 1st July 2009.


Collection of personal information

Anyone can browse our websites without revealing any personally identifiable information.

However, should you wish to contact a business for sale or franchise opportunity, an intermediary or list a business or franchise for sale we will require you to provide some personal information.

Should you wish to advertise your services, your business(es) or your franchise opportunity, we will require you to provide some personal information.

By providing personal information, you are consenting to the transfer and storage of that information on our servers located in the UK.

We may collect and store the following personal information:


Your name, email address, physical address, telephone numbers, and (depending on the service used) , your business information, financial information, such as credit / payment card details or bank account numbers;

other information from your interaction with our sites, services, content and advertising, including computer and connection information, statistics on page views, traffic to and from the sites, ad data, IP address and standard web log information;
other supplemental information from third parties (for example, if you incur a debt to EBA Consulting Limited, we will generally conduct a credit check by obtaining additional information about you from a credit bureau, as permitted by law; or if the information you provide cannot be verified, we may ask you to send us additional information, or to answer additional questions online to help verify your information).

How we use your information

The primary reason we collect your personal information is to improve the services we deliver to you through our websites. By registering or sending an enquiry through to an EBA Consulting Limited website, you agree that we may use your personal information to:

provide the services and customer support you request;
connect you with relevant parties:
o If you are a buyer we will pass some or all of your details on to the seller / intermediary along with any message you have typed. This allows the seller to contact you in order to pursue a possible sale of a business;
o If you are a seller / intermediary, we will disclose your details where you have given us permission to do so;
resolve disputes, collect fees, and troubleshoot problems;
prevent potentially prohibited or illegal activities, and enforce our Terms and Conditions;
customise, measure and improve our services, conduct internal market research, provide content and advertising;
tell you about EBA Consulting Limited websites, products and services, target marketing, send you service updates, and promotional offers based on your communication preferences.


Our disclosure of your information

We may disclose personal information to respond to legal requirements, enforce our policies, respond to claims that a listing or other content infringes the rights of others, or protect anyone's rights, property, or safety.

We may also share your personal information with:
the sellers of any business you wish to contact - this may also include a seller's representative;
a party interested in your business or franchise;
our partner websites - to provide joint content and services (like registration, transactions and customer support), to help detect and prevent potentially illegal acts and violations of our policies, and to guide decisions about their products, services and communications;
service providers under contract who help with our business operations (such as finance providers, lawyers and others);
law enforcement agencies, other governmental agencies or third parties in response to a request for information relating to a criminal investigation, alleged illegal activity or any other activity that may expose us, you or any other EBA Consulting Limited user to legal liability. The personal information we disclose may include your name, company name, city, county, telephone number, email address, fraud complaints and transaction history or anything else that we deem relevant;
other business entities, should we plan to merge with or be acquired by that business entity. (Should such a combination occur, we will require that the new combined entity follow this privacy policy with respect to your personal information. If your personal information will be used contrary to this policy, you will receive prior notice.)

Without limiting the above, in an effort to respect your privacy and our ability to keep the community free from those who attempt to carry out fraudulent or illegal activities on the site, we will not otherwise disclose your personal information to law enforcement, other government officials, or other third parties without a court order or substantially similar legal procedure, except when we believe in good faith that the disclosure of information is necessary to prevent imminent physical harm or financial loss or to report suspected illegal activity.

In certain cases, (where you are receiving contact details of buyers interested in your business opportunity or a business opportunity you represent), you must comply with data protection laws, and give other users a chance to remove themselves from your database and a chance to review what information you have collected about them.
