The Firm takes your privacy seriously.  The Firm may collect and store any personal information that you knowingly provide to the Firm, as well as information that the Firm automatically receives from your browser or device.  The Firm may communicate with you if you’ve provided it with the means to do so, unless you inform the Firm that you do not want to receive such communications.  The Firm does not rent or sell your personal information to anyone.  The Firm may share the personally identifiable information you provide with third parties, but only as necessary to provide any services that you have requested.  In addition, the Firm may share information with third parties on a non-personal or aggregated basis such that any individual would not be able to be identified.

Submissions to the Firm
Due to the large number of business plan ideas and related materials that the Firm reviews, and the similarity of many such plans and materials, the Firm cannot agree to obligations of confidentiality or non-disclosure with regard to information you submit via this website except as the Firm may otherwise specifically agree with you in a written agreement that is validly signed by or on behalf the Firm.  By submitting information or materials to the Firm (whether via this website, via email or otherwise), you and anyone acting on your behalf agree that any such information or materials will not be considered confidential or proprietary.
