Scope of This Policy
This Policy applies only to information collected through BTB owned platforms on which it is posted. It does not apply to third-party platforms or other platforms owned by BTB. It also does not apply to information collected through other channels, such as over the phone or in person.
Some of the information we collect through this site may be “personal information” that identifies you personally, alone, or in combination with other information available to us. Further information may be nonpersonally identifiable, such as information collected by cookies.
Please take a few minutes to review this Policy before using this site. By using this site, you consent to collecting, using, and disclosing your information as outlined in this Policy. If you disagree to be bound by this Policy, you may not access or use this site.
Types of Information We Collect
Information You Manually Provide. BTB collects the information you manually provide (using your keyboard, mouse, or touchpad) when you use this site. For example, we collect your data when you create an account, subscribe to our newsletter, express interest in becoming a franchisee, or otherwise interact with this site. Some of the information you manually provide may be personal information, such as your name and contact information.
Information From Third-Party Social Media Platforms. You may be able to register with, log on to, or enhance your profile on this site by choosing to automatically populate the requested data fields with information you previously provided to a third-party social media platform (such as Facebook or Twitter). By doing this, you ask the third-party platform to send us information from your profile on that platform, including personal data.
Information from your browser or device. BTB collects information that is sent to us automatically by your web browser or mobile device. This information typically includes your IP address, the name of your operating system, the name and version of your browser, the date and time of your visit, and the pages you visit. The information we receive may depend on your browser or device settings.
The information we receive from your web browser and the device is not, in and of itself, personally identifiable. However, we may combine it with other information to identify you, or we may combine it with information that does identify you. We may also review our server logs for security purposes—for example, to detect intrusions into our network—and we might share our server logs, which contain visitors’ IP addresses, with the appropriate investigative authorities who could use that information to trace and identify you.
- collect information about the ways visitors use this site—which pages they visit, which links they use, and how long they stay on each page;
- support the features and functionality of this site—for example, to save you the trouble of reentering information already in our database or to prompt the settings you established on previous visits;
- personalize your experience when you use this site; and
- improve our marketing efforts, including through use of targeted advertising.
The information we collect using cookies and similar technologies is not personally identifiable, but we may link it to the personal information that you provide. If you do not wish to receive cookies, you may set your browser to reject cookies or alert you when a cookie is placed on your computer. Although you are not required to accept cookies when you visit this site, you may be unable to use all of the functionality of this site if your browser rejects our cookies.
Information About Third-Party Cookies and Interest-Based Advertising
In addition to the cookies BTB delivers to your computer or mobile device through this site, certain third parties may deliver cookies to you for a variety of reasons. For example, we use Google Analytics, a web analytics tool that helps us understand how visitors engage with our Sites. To learn more about Google Analytics, click here. Other third parties may deliver cookies to your computer or mobile device for the purpose of tracking your online behaviors over time and across nonaffiliated websites and/or delivering targeted advertisements either on this site or on other websites.
You have choices about the collection of information by third parties on our Sites. For example, if you don’t want information about your visit to this site sent to Google Analytics, you may download an Opt-out Browser Add-on by clicking here. Please note that the Add-on does not prevent information from being sent to BTB.
In addition, if you would like to opt-out of having participating entities collect your online behavior for advertising purposes when you are browsing our websites, click here for a “Website Opt-out.” You will be directed to an industry-developed website that allows you to choose whether each listed entity may collect and use data for interest-based advertising purposes. It may be that some of the third parties that collect interest-based information on this site do not participate in the Website Opt-out, in which case the best way to avoid third-party tracking of your online behaviors may be through your browser settings and deletion of cookies.
The Website Opt-out described above works only on websites. To opt-out of having participating entities track your behaviors for advertising purposes when you are using our mobile apps, download and use the Digital Advertising Alliance’s “App Choices” app. As with the Website Opt-out, the “Mobile App Opt-out” prevents tracking only by participating entities.
Please note that the Website Opt-out and Mobile App Opt-out are device specific. If you wish to opt-out from having interest-based information collected by participating entities across all devices, you need take the steps outlined above from each device.

Steps We Take to Safeguard your Information

How We Share Information With Others
With Third–Party Vendors. BTB shares information collected through this site with third-party vendors who act on our behalf. For example, we may use third-party vendors to design and operate this site; to conduct surveys; and to help us with our promotional efforts. These third-party vendors may need information about you to perform their obligations. Typically, they are required by contract to keep your information confidential and to use it only to provide services on our behalf; however, as described below, we may allow them to use aggregate or de-identified data for their own purposes or to market the products and services of their other clients.
Within the BTB Corporate Family. The owner and operator of this site may share information collected through this site with other companies in the BTB corporate structure. BTB’s affiliate companies are permitted to use your information for their own marketing purposes and in a manner otherwise consistent with this Policy.
With our Distributors. BTB may share information collected through this site with its franchisees, which may be permitted to use your information for their own marketing purposes and in any manner otherwise consistent with this Policy.

In Aggregate or De-Identified Form. We use information collected through this site to create a compiled, aggregate view of usage patterns. We may share aggregate information with third parties so we and they can better understand our user base. We may also share with third parties information about how particular individuals use this site, but only on a de-identified basis (“Individualized Data”). Individualized Data is not personally identifiable, but it does reflect the usage patterns of a particular Site user, as opposed to Site users collectively. We may provide basic demographic information (gender and age) in conjunction with providing Individualized Data. Third parties typically use this information for analytical purposes and to market their own products and services.
With Other, Carefully Selected Business Partners. We may share your information with selected third parties for their own marketing purposes from time to time. For example, we may partner with third parties to sponsor contests or other promotions. We may share the information you submit to us to participate in the game or take advantage of the promotion with these third parties. Before doing so, however, we may offer you the opportunity to “opt-out” or “opt-in,” as required by applicable law.
As Part of a Business Transfer. Your information may be transferred to successor organization if, for example, we transfer the ownership or operation of this site to another organization if we merge with or are acquired by another organization, or if we liquidate our assets. If such a transfer occurs, the successor organization’s use of your information will still be subject to this Policy and the privacy preferences you have expressed to us.
