The Services include the identification of franchises and other business opportunities for which the Company determines that You may be an interested buyer and Your referral by the Company to the franchisor or other seller of such business as a potential franchisee or buyer (each, a “Referral”).

In the case of any sale resulting from such Referral (each, a “Transaction”), You acknowledge and agree that the Company shall act as a referral source and does not represent You, the franchisor or seller in such Transaction.

The Company refers candidates to franchise sellers that may elect to sell a franchise to a candidate.  Certain states require that those franchise sales may not take place until the franchise seller has complied with the state’s registration and disclosure requirements.
