Welcome! Brand Activation Maximizer, LLC (“BAM” or “we”) is committed to safeguarding your personal information and online privacy.
INFORMATION WE COLLECT
The information we collect depends on how and why you use the Services:
- BAM collects your personal contact details and the other information you provide when you participate in one of the sweepstakes, contests or other promotions that we operate or when you create an account to use certain Services.
- If you send us an email or otherwise submit an inquiry, BAM collects the information that you choose to give us.
- We collect purchase-related information, such as purchases you make but payments for your purchases are processed by PayPal. We do not receive your payment information and PayPal contractually agrees with us to use your personal information only as necessary to complete the requested transaction. Please read PayPal’s Privacy Statement to learn how PayPal processes your payment-related information.
- When you apply for a job, we collect the employment-related information you submit, such as job preferences, work history and similar information provided in your application.
BAM automatically collects certain information about how you access the Services. Depending on the settings of your browser, computer or mobile device, the information that we automatically collect includes the date and time you access the Services; browser type and language; the make, model and operating system version of your computer or mobile device; your Internet Protocol (IP) address or MAC address; country and time zone in which your the device is located and other general location information derived from your IP address (e.g., city, state); internet service provider; mobile network information; and certain metadata stored on the device. This information is collected through cookies and other data collection technology, as described below.
When you allow us to do so, some of the Services collect precise geo-location information (e.g., GPS and WiFi). Of course, you can turn off collection of your geo-location at any time by accessing the privacy settings of your device’s operating system and in some cases through the settings in the application.
A cookie is a small data file that contains a unique identification number that is stored in your web browser when you surf the Internet. Cookies store information about your computer, the type of browser you use and how many times you visit a certain site.
Cookies set by us are called “first party cookies.” Cookies enable us to track how often people are using the Services and the specific pages visited and similar actions. Cookies set by other parties are called “third party cookies”. Third party cookies enable certain features such as social media, advertising, interactive content and analytics. The parties that set these third-party cookies can recognize your browser or device both when it visits a particular website and when it visits other websites.
You can set your web browser to reject cookies. You do not need to have cookies turned on to use most of the Services. You may, however, find that some areas on the Services are slower or do not function at all if cookies are disabled. To learn more about cookies generally, visit http://www.allaboutcookies.org.
The Services also may from time to time use clear GIFs (also known as pixel tags or web beacons). A clear GIF is computer code that contains a unique identifier that enables us to monitor user activity and traffic of the Services. We use GIFs to gather aggregate information on visits to the Services, track usage of website links and assist with features of the Services.
Why we use data collection technology. Some cookies – known as “essential” or “strictly necessary” cookies – are required for technical reasons in order for our Services to operate.
Other cookies enable us and our third-party service and advertising partners to improve your experience of the Services and to infer ads that are most relevant to you and target those ads to you. That is, when you surf the Internet, you may see different kinds of ads, such as ads next to search results. Sometimes, these ads are based on the content of the pages on which they appear and sometimes these ads are generated by matching the particular ad to your interests as inferred from your online activities collected over time.
Generally, the information collected through data collection technology does not directly identify you to us personally and is aggregated with other data to create advertising segments, such as “stock car racing fan.” If you are no longer interested in receiving interest-based ads, you can opt-out by visiting Ad Choices (US).
We also use Google Analytics, which collects aggregate information about use of the Services and reports website trends to us. Google Analytics does not directly identify individual users. We also use Google’s targeted advertising services. You can learn about Google’s practices at https://safety.google/privacy/privacy-controls/.
Our Policy On Do Not Track Signals. Most web browsers incorporate a “Do Not Track” (“DNT”) or similar feature that signals to websites that a user does not want to have his or her online activity and behavior tracked. If a website that responds to a particular DNT signal receives the DNT signal, the browser blocks that website from collecting certain personal information about the browser’s user. Not all browsers offer a DNT option and DNT signals are not yet uniform. For this reason, many website operators, including BAM, do not respond to DNT signals.

HOW WE PROTECT AND RETAIN INFORMATION
We use physical, technical and organizational measures designed to protect your personal information against unauthorized access, theft and loss. We restrict access to your personal information to those employees who need to know that information to perform their job functions and to our authorized service providers and partners.
Although we take precautions intended to help protect information that we process, no system or electronic data transmission is completely secure. Please use your own security measures to protect your personal information. If you create an account with us, please protect your password – actions taken through your user account are deemed authorized by you. If you believe that your account or information is no longer secure, please notify us immediately at info@ActivateBAM.com.
We may suspend your use of all or part of the Services without notice if we suspect or detect any breach of security. You understand and agree that we may deliver electronic notifications about breaches of security to the email address associated with your account or in our database.
We retain your personal information for as long as needed to fulfill the purpose for which it was collected unless a longer retention period is required or permitted by law. When your personal information is no longer needed, we securely destroy it as required by law.
CHOICES ABOUT YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
If you receive marketing emails from us, you can opt out at any time by clicking the opt-out or unsubscribe link in the marketing email. Once you opt out, we will no longer send you marketing emails but still may send you emails with transactional or similar information, such as informing you that you won a sweepstakes.
If you would like to review, correct or delete personal information about you that you have previously provided to us or that you believe we collected about you, please contact us at info@ActivateBAM.com. In your request, please make clear the personal information about you to which your request relates and the actions you would like us to take. For your protection, we will verify your identity before fulfilling your request. We will honor request when these rights are provided to you by law.
Please note that we often need to retain certain information for recordkeeping purposes and our databases and other records may have residual information that we will not remove. We also may not allow you to review, correct or delete certain information for legal, security or other reasons.
If you are a California resident, you can request a notice disclosing the categories of personal information about you that BAM shared with third parties for their direct marketing purposes during the preceding calendar year. To request this notice, please submit your request to info@ActivateBAM.com. Please allow up to 30 days for a response. We will only honor those requests that comply with California law.
BAM does not knowingly collect personal information from minors. If we learn that a minor has provided us with personal information, we delete that personal information from our records.
