In connection with my application for a Spiro's franchise or development agreement, I hereby authorize Spiro's Franchising, LLC, and its agents, representatives and contractors, collectively “Spiro's Franchising”, to: (a) investigate my references, work records, education, criminal background, credit and financial status and history, and other records and information that Spiro's Franchising deems appropriate; (b) contact any reference listed in this application, and/or any other business associates, financial sources (including, but not limited to, Lexis/Nexus, Dun & Bradstreet, other credit bureaus, and banking institutions), friends or other third parties with whom I am acquainted, concerning my suitability for the operation of a Spiro's franchise; and (c) prepare investigative and other reports concerning information as to my character, general reputation, personal characteristics, financial stability, mode of living and other matters that Spiro's Franchising deems appropriate. In addition, I further authorize my current and former employers to disclose to Spiro's Franchising any and all letters, reports and other information pertaining to my employment with them, without giving me prior notice of such disclosure. I hereby release Spiro's Franchising, my current and former employers, and all other persons, corporations, partnerships and associations from any and all claims, demands or liabilities arising out of or in any way related to such investigation or disclosure. I understand that the credit and criminal reporting agencies will make their results known to Spiro's Franchising, and that Spiro's Franchising may use those results and any other information it obtains in determining whether I will be granted the right to enter into a franchise agreement with Spiro's Franchising. I understand that I have the right to make a written request within a reasonable period of time for a complete and accurate disclosure of additional information concerning the nature and scope of the investigation. I affirm that to the best of my knowledge this information is an accurate and complete representation of my financial and operational qualifications and background. I understand that Spiro's Franchising is relying upon all the above information as a material factor in considering my application to become a Franchisee, and I therefore agree to promptly notify Spiro's Franchising of any material change in any of this information or any other information provided to Spiro's Franchising.
