Section 1. Who We Are
Section2. CrowdPoint Data Rights
Our Data Rights involve five key principles, each of which is described in more detail below:
1. Data Agency. To Us, Data Agency is a combination of ownership and agency. Ownership is the first building block of Your Data Agency. Your Data is owned by You. Period. No exceptions. By using Our Platform and Services, You are giving Us permission to serve as your agent for that Data. As Your agent for Your Data You grant Us permission to store, organize, refine, and take other actions on Your behalf, but only as You direct Us. Think of us as the caretaker for Your Data. Agency is the second building block of Your Data Agency, and we facilitate this through our unique data control tools. We will assume You have provided Your consent for Us to do something on Your behalf only when You take affirmative actions to direct Our Platform and Services to take an action. Similarly, if You direct the Platform and Services to securely store Your data, but keep it private, We will honor that request.
2. Openness. We believe there is nothing worse than having to fight against a site to figure out what data they have on You. We strive to be as open and transparent as possible. We will show You all data We have or are collecting, storing and using as You’ve directed Us to, whetherYou directly imported it from another data-source, entered it manually, iscollected from Your interactions with Our Platform and Services, is inferredabout You, or if it is a collection of aggregated data about You from cookiesand similar tracking tools.
3. Transferability. You may at any time add datasources from third parties to the Platform or Services to the extent suchtransfer is supported by Us, or export a copy of all data We have on You. Youmay also elect to license some or all of Your data to Our partners to monetizeit. If You elect to be presented with such opportunities, You must also selectwhat data about You is shared, and it will be pushed from the Platform andServices to the third part(ies).
4. Deletability. As the owner of Your Data, Youhave the unconditional ability to delete it from Our Platform and Services atany time. This includes any data You may have uploaded or linked from otherservices. If You elect to delete this data and or Your account, You may loseearnings which have not yet been deposited, as well as earnings potential.To the extent it is technically possible, We will delete data You havepreviously shared and which is being utilized by a third party, but this maytake up to 30 days.
5. Respect. WhileWe cannot control all of the digital advertising messaging which reach You, tothe extent You utilize Our Platform and Services, You may influence the type ofadvertisers and content of such advertisements which You see within OurPlatform and Services. Similarly, You are able to configure Your interests sothat We can show You relevant information. You may tell Us about these preferencesdirectly in Your account, or We may infer them from Your ongoing feedback andinteractions. We will do Our best to honor these preferences, but cannotguarantee every single potential engagement You see will exactly conform withyour chosen preferences.

To this end, building Your profile by linking existing datasources, answering questions, or simply interacting with Our Platform andServices empowers an algorithm to work on Your behalf.
The Services provided throughthe Platform allow you to determine what personal information You would like toshare and be included in the compensation for the sale of Your personalinformation to various third parties, including, but not limited to, brands,advertisers, ad agencies market researchers, retailers, distributors,resellers, and data management platforms (collectively, the “Purchasers”) inaccordance with Our Terms and Conditions.
