Last revised: February 1, 2022
This Policy supplements the Terms of Service posted elsewhere within the Products. You should read the Policy and the Terms of Service before you use the Products. If you do not agree with this Policy, please do not use the Services.
Changes to this Policy
We may change the Policy at any time by posting revisions to the Policy on the Products. Therefore, you should review the Policy from time to time. If you do not accept all the terms, conditions and notices set forth in the Policy, you must exit the Products immediately. We will post a notice for 30 days at the top of this page notifying users when this Policy has been updated or modified in a material way.
Collection of Information from Children
The Products are not directed to, or intended for use by, children (defined as anyone under eighteen (18) years old). Children should not use or submit any information through the Products or its Services. If you are under the age of 18, you only may use the Services with permission from your parents or guardians. Become a Delegate does not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from users under the age of 18. If a child under 18 submits information through any part of the Services, and we become aware that the person submitting the information is a child, we will attempt to delete this information as soon as possible.
Type of Information Collected
We may collect two general types of information when you use the Products:
Personally Identifiable Information ("PII"), which includes your first and last name, home or other physical address, telephone number, email address, user id, other identifiers that permit physical or online contact with you, or any information about you collected online and maintained in personally identifiable form in combination with any of the preceding categories. You also may view or engage with our Products and its Services through third-party social networking Products or social media plug-ins and applications. When you engage with the Products and its content through such third-party Products, plug-ins or applications, we may have access to certain information from your social media profile, such as your name, photo, gender, birthday, location, videos, your list of friends, etc. This information is included in the definition of PII.
Non-personally identifiable information ("non-PII") such as, the type of browser you are using, the type of operating system you are using, the web pages you have visited sites visited before and after you visit the Products, the type of handheld or mobile device used to access the Products or other device-specific information.
How Information is Collected
We collect information both actively and passively. For example, we will collect information about you that you voluntarily provide while on the Products. In addition to information provided directly by you, we (and third parties that offer features through the Products) may collect non-PII through the use of "cookies," "web beacons," "Flash cookies" or by other electronic means.
Web Beacons. We, our third-party service providers, advertisers and partners also may use "web beacons" or similar technologies. Web beacons are small strings of code placed on a web page to collect data about how visitors use the Products. For example, web beacons may be used to count the number of users who visit the Products or to deliver a cookie to the browser of a visitor to the Products. If you set your browser to turn off cookies, web beacons and similar technologies will detect your visits to the Products, but they will not associate your activity on the Products with information that otherwise would be stored in cookies. We do not control tracking technologies used by third parties on the Products.

Third Party Links
How Information is Used and Shared
We use your PII for the purpose of conducting our business and pursuing our legitimate interests. For example, we use your PII to:
In the event that Become a Delegate is considering a sale of its business, in its entirety or a component thereof, or substantially all of its assets are acquired, or a portion thereof, PII and non-PII, may be one of the transferred assets, and may therefore be used by a third-party acquirer in accordance with this Policy. Such use by a third party may include review of PII, using such PII to contact you either before or after such a transfer or sale, use or transfer of non-PII before or after such a transfer or sale, or for other purposes.
WE MAY DISCLOSE PII ABOUT YOU TO A THIRD PARTY FOR COMPENSATION.
In addition, we may share your information as described below:
Information You Elect to Share: You may choose to share information with Third Parties by clicking on links to those Third Parties from within the Products. In addition, you may elect to share information, including PII, through the Services offered on the Products by, for instance, posting comments on comment boards. Some of your activity on the Products, including content you have posted, is public by default. Some of this content may include PII.
Third-Party Advertisers and Web Products: We may share your non-PII with, or make your non-PII available to, Third Parties as described in the section above titled Third-Party Advertising and Third-Party Web Products.
Information Disclosed to Vendors, Partners, Service Providers, and Others for Business Purposes: We contract with vendors to provide services related to the Products and may share PII with such vendors in order to provide products or services to you or to help maintain the Products. We also may share non-PII with our partners, service providers and other persons with whom we conduct business. We will only share your PII in accordance with applicable law.
Information Disclosed for the Protection of the Products and for Others. We may disclose PII when (1) required by law or to respond to legal process or lawful requests, including from law enforcement; (2) when we believe it is necessary to prevent, investigate, or address (a) possible illegal activities, including fraud, (b) violation of our Terms of Service, (c) violation of this Policy, or (d) threats to the physical safety of any person; or (4) to protect our rights or property.
The Products may include forums (such as message boards, chat rooms, comment boards, and reviews) that enable users to post a comment or communicate with each other. We are under no obligation to moderate or edit the forums and will not be responsible for the content or use of any material posted on any forum within the Products. We retain the right to delete at any time and for any reason any material posted within the Products.
We take information security seriously, and we use reasonable administrative, technical and physical safeguards to protect the PII we collect from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. But we have no control over the security of other websites on the Internet that you might visit. If you share your computer or use a computer that is accessed by the general public, remember to sign off and close your browser window when you have finished your session. This will help to ensure that others cannot access your PII.
Additionally, and as you are likely aware, no system can be completely secure. Therefore, although we take commercially reasonable steps to secure your information, we do not promise, and you should not expect, that your PII, searches or other communications always will remain secure. In the event of a breach of the confidentiality or security of your PII, we will notify you if reasonably possible and as reasonably necessary so that you can take appropriate protective steps. We may notify you under such circumstances using the e-mail address(es) we have on record for you. You should also take care with how you handle and disclose your PII. Please refer to the Federal Trade Commission's Web Products at http://www.consumer.ftc.gov for information about how to protect against identity theft.
Under the law of some countries, you may have certain rights with respect to your PII. These rights include the right to: (i) request access to and rectification or erasure of your PII; (ii) obtain restriction of processing or object to processing of your PII; and (iii) ask for a copy of your PII to be provided to you or a third party in a machine-readable format. If you wish to exercise one of the above-mentioned rights, please send us your request to the contact details set out below. If you have unresolved concerns, you may also have the right to lodge a complaint about the processing of your PII with your local data protection authority in the European Union or elsewhere.
Important Information for California Residents: Your California Privacy Rights
These additional disclosures for California residents apply only to individuals who reside in California. The California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 ("CCPA") provides additional rights to know, delete and opt out, and requires businesses collecting or disclosing personal information to provide notices and means to exercise those rights. The words used in this section have the meanings given to them in the CCPA, which may be broader than their common meaning. For example, the definition of "personal information" under the CCPA includes your name, but also more general information such as age.
Notice of Collection
The categories of personal information that we may have collected – as described by the CCPA – in the past 12 months are:
Identifiers: name, alias, postal address, unique personal identifier, online identifier, Internet Protocol (IP) address, email address, account name. We use this data to provide customers with a BecomeADelegate.com account. Additionally, we use online identifiers to understand how consumers use our products and services.
Customer records information: name, address, telephone number, bank account number, credit, or debit card number. We collect this information when a user performs a payment transaction on one of our services. Commercial information: We use a unique identifier to track consumer behavior on our products. We then use that data to personalize content and or advertising products to the consumer.
Internet or other electronic network activity information: We collect this data specific to our websites and applications. We do not operate a web browser or search technology, but we track searches performed on our website. We do this for a few purposes. We allow users to create saved searches and alerts. Saved searches and alerts enable users to opt in to a notification service. When the user creates a saved search, if a new product is posted on our service that matches their search criteria, we will send them an email or mobile phone alert. We also use their search behavior to personalize content and advertising.
Geolocation data: When using our service, a user can search for information using location data such as a city or zip code. Furthermore, on a mobile device, users can opt in to the mobile device geolocation service to show the user listings from a selected mile radius from their current geolocation.
Inferences: We use consumer behavior to create profiles and make inferences about future consumer behavior. We collect and use these categories of personal information for the business purposes and sharing practices described in our policy above.
We do not generally "sell" personal information as the term "sell" is traditionally understood. However, to the extent "sale" under the CCPA is interpreted to include advertising technology activities such as those disclosed in the above sections as a "sale," we provide you the option to request that we not "sell" your personal information. We do not sell the personal information of minors known to be under the age of 18 without affirmative authorization.
We sell or disclose the following categories of personal information for commercial purposes: identifiers, demographic information, political information, commercial information, internet activity, geolocation data and inferences. We use and partner with different types of entities to assist with our daily operations and manage our services.
Right to Know and Delete
If you are a California resident, you have the right to delete the personal information we have collected from you and the right to know certain information about our data practices in the preceding 12 months. In particular, you have the right to request the following from us:
To exercise any of these rights, please email us at email@example.com. We will use the information you provide to us solely for the purpose of verifying your request and locating your data, if any, within our records. Please note, under California law, such requests can be made a maximum of twice per twelve-month period.
We have a duty as the holder of certain personal information to verify your identity when making requests to know or delete personal information and to ensure that dissemination of that information would not cause harm to you if it were distributed to another person. To verify your identity, we will request and collect additional personal information from you to match it against our records. We may ask for additional information or documentation if we feel it is necessary to confirm your identity with the necessary degree of certainty. We may communicate with you through email, a secure message center, or other reasonably necessary and appropriate means. We do have the right to deny requests under certain circumstances. In such cases, we will notify you of the reasons for denial. We will not provide you with specific pieces of personal information if the disclosure creates a substantial, articulable, and unreasonable risk to the security of that personal information, your account with us, or the security of our systems or networks. In no event will we disclose, if we have collected it, your Social Security number, driver's license number or other government-issued identification number, financial account number, any health insurance or medical identification number, an account password, or security questions and answers.
Right to Opt-Out
To the extent we sell your personal information as the term "sell" is defined under the California Consumer Privacy Act, you have the right to opt-out of the sale of your personal information by us to third parties at any time. You may submit a request to opt-out of by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
You have the right not to receive discriminatory treatment by us for exercising any of your rights.
You may be entitled, in accordance with applicable law, to submit a request via an authorized agent acting on your behalf. To do so, we must receive written authorization or a power of attorney, signed by you, for the agent to act on your behalf. You will still need to verify your identity directly with us.
California Do Not Track Disclosure
Certain web browsers may allow you to enable a "do not track" option that sends signals to the websites you visit indicating that you do not want your online activities tracked. This is different from blocking cookies as browsers with the "do not track" option selected may still accept cookies. Become a Delegate does not respond to "do not track" signals. If we do so in the future, we will modify this Policy accordingly. More information about "do not track" is available at www.allaboutdnt.org. We do not authorize the collection of your PII for third party use through advertising technologies without you providing consent directly to such third parties.
Important Information for Nevada Residents: Your Nevada Privacy Rights
If you are a resident of Nevada, you have the right to opt-out of the sale of certain Personal Data to third parties who intend to license or sell that Personal Data. You can exercise this right by emailing us at email@example.com.

However, we value your privacy and always strive to treat it in accordance with applicable law. By voluntarily sharing your PII with us, you understand that your PII will be stored and processed in the United States.
