Miss Tourism Pageant Organization Legal Notice
Effective April 16, 2023
Miss Tourism Pageant Organization (“MTPO”) is a national organization that serves local and national independent member organizations (“Local Miss Tourism Pageants”). Together Miss Tourism Pageants and Local Miss Tourism Pageants form one of the nation’s largest networks of local youth organizations. Miss Tourism Pageants are dedicated to promoting the health, social, educational, vocational and character development of youth throughout the United States of America.
Each state local event is a separate legal entity; is governed by an independent board of directors, executive committee, or other governing body; and is solely responsible for its own affairs, including, but not limited to, matters of safety, compliance with federal, state, and local laws, physical facilities, uses of technology, finances, policies and programs, and personnel policies and decisions. Each Local Miss Tourism Pageant has sole authority to hire, terminate, prescribe the duties of, and establish the terms of employment of its employees and officers.
As the national organization, Miss Tourism Pageant Organization has no authority with respect to the employees or decisions of Local Miss Tourism Pageant “City Pageant and State Pageant.” Accordingly, each Local Miss Tourism Pageant controls its own affairs, and Miss Tourism Pageant Organization does not control and cannot be held responsible for the actions of Local or State Miss Tourism Pageant events.

MTPO collects any information that you provide in such circumstances, including any personal information.
We may also ask you for identifying and personal information to:

How MTPO Uses the Information It Collects
How MTPO Shares the Information It Collects
MTPO understands the importance of privacy and confidentiality to users of this site. MTPO may provide the information it collects through this site to third parties who provide services on MTPO's behalf and, with your permission, to MTPO’s business partners. For example, we use one or more third-party financial institutions to process our credit card transactions. They receive the credit card number and other personal information of our donors only to verify credit card numbers and to process credit card transactions in a secure environment. We also occasionally hire other companies to perform limited services on our behalf. We only provide those companies with the information they need to deliver the service and prohibit them from using that information for any other purpose. Aggregated, depersonalized traffic data is shared with certain advertisers to optimize campaigns.
From time to time, MTPO may also share donor names and email/mailing addresses with other reputable nonprofit organizations on a limited basis in exchange for limited access to the names, email, and addresses of their constituents. We have found this is a cost-effective method of reaching additional potential constituents. These organizations will not have continued access to your name and address unless you choose to respond to their initial mailing. We do not share mobile/cell phone data in connection with this list exchange. MTPO never sends out mailings on behalf of other organizations.
We respect our donors’ choices and control over their information. You, as a donor, may, at any time, have your name excluded from any donor list exchange activity. To ask that your name be excluded from the list exchange activity or to otherwise change how MTPO contacts you, please email us at email@example.com.
Integrity and Security
Use of SSL and Encryption. In order to enhance privacy and security, MTPO maintains a current Secure Socket Layer (SSL) Encryption Certificate on official MTPO Sites that permit a donor or supporter to provide their personal data.
Restricting Who Has Access to Your Information. MTPO employs commercially reasonable managerial and technical measures to help protect the security and integrity of the personal information it collects online through this site. You acknowledge, however, that no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while MTPO strives to protect your personal information, MTPO cannot ensure the security of any information you transmit to or from this site.
