I understand that the granting of a franchise is at the sole discretion of the Franchisor (Apple Hotel).

This questionnaire is not to be construed as an offer of a franchise, a commitment or a binding agreement on either party. The offer of a franchise can only be made through the delivery of a Franchise Disclosure Document.
I understand that any information I receive from the Franchisor or from any employee, agent or franchisee of the Franchisor is highly confidential ("Confidential Information"), has been developed with a great deal of effort and expense to the Franchisor, and is being made available to me solely because of this Application.
I agree that I shall treat and maintain all Confidential Information as confidential, and I shall not, at any time, without the express written consent of the board of directors of the Franchisor, disclose, publish or divulge any Confidential Information to any person, firm, corporation or other entity, or use any Confidential Information, directly or indirectly, for my own benefit or the benefit of any person, firm, corporation or other entity, other than for the benefit of the Franchisor.
Before I am accepted as a franchisee of Apple Hotel, I authorise Apple Hotel to start an investigative consumer report including information as to my character, general reputation, personal characteristics, background, character, mode of living, association with other individuals or entities, creditworthiness, litigation history and job performance, and credit investigation based on information voluntarily provided by me.
I understand based on information voluntarily provided by me at that time and represent that all information is true and accurate. I understand that I have a right to request that Apple Hotel make a complete and accurate disclosure of the nature and scope of such investigation. Apple Hotel may obtain my credit report in connection with this questionnaire and other information provided by me in the future.
I hereby consent to the collection, use and disclosure by Harvest Paradise Sdn Bhd and its parent and affiliated companies (“Apple Hotel”) of the personal information about me provided in this Prospective Franchise Questionnaire or provided by me in the future in connection with any franchise granted to me or to a corporation that I control for the purpose of assessing my application for a franchise and, if my application is accepted, for the purpose of administering my relationship with Apple Hotel in connection with any such franchise.
This authorisation for the release of information includes but is not limited to matters of opinion relating to my character, ability, reputation, association with others and past performance. I authorise all persons, schools, companies, corporations, credit bureaus, law enforcement agencies or other investigative service providers to release such information without restriction or qualification to a representative of the Franchisor, a credit bureau, security consultant or other investigative service provider selected by the Franchisor and any of its officers, agents, employees and/or servants. I voluntarily waive all recourse and release them from liability for complying with this authorisation. This authorisation/release shall apply to this as well as any future request for these investigations by the above named individuals or entities. I authorise that a photocopy or facsimile of this release be considered as valid as the original.
Everything that I have stated in this application is true and I understand that the information provided by me will be relied upon by the Franchisor. In accordance with anti-terrorist legislation, I understand that I will not be approved to purchase a franchise if I have ever been a suspected terrorist or associated directly or indirectly with terrorist activities.
