Franchise Equity Group: Our Security Is Bulletproof!

Franchise Equity Group has assembled an impressive E-mail address list of
franchisees and related parties. However, this information is only handled
by myself and no one else ever gets near this information. I do not sell
or rent my E-mail list. Never have, never will.

As always all communications here at Franchise Equity Group are confidential
and the identities of our clients and constituents are never revealed.

That's the nice thing about being a One-Man-Shop.
