Did you know that there are well over 5000  different data broker and/or directed marketing companies operating globally? That's over 5000 different companies all trying to get your personally  identifiable information in order to sell to you products, or more often than not actually in order to sell you as a product.

Thanks to increasing awareness and new legislation you now have the right to demand these companies erase the data they have collected about you, as well as to order them to stop collecting any new data about you.

 

      The only problem is is that the new legislation requires you to inform every single data brokering company individually of your desire to "opt-out" of their data collection efforts. Like any one has the time to look up over 5000 different companies and tell each of them personally to stop tracking, collecting, and utilizing your data....  

   Even if you had the name and contact information of all 5000+ companies, are you really going to make the 5000+ phone calls, send the 6000+ emails, and fill out the 5000+ "opt out" forms required to live an unmonitored and untracked life on-line? Of course you won't! Who would?This doesn't seem like a very fair burden for you to have to take on merely to demand these companies respect your right to privacy, and stop taking the data that legally belongs to you!

    Therefore, the Association for Consumer Effectiveness has created the "Do Not Track Me Club!" By joining the club you are empowering the Association for Consumer Effectiveness to contact all 5000+ data brokering companies known to the Association on your behalf and legally invoke your legal right to "opt-out" as defined by the California Consumer Pprivacy Act 2.0.  

    Simply fill out the form to the left and found on this page which grants the Association a very limited power of attorney to communicate your desire not to be tracked, monitored, or have your digital personally identifiable information collected or utilized for commercial purposes without your express written permission. We will take care of the rest! 

 

     By joining the club and purchasing a membership you are granting us the very limited ability to speak on your behalf to all data brokers in order to inform them of your desire to invoke your right to "opt-out" of having your personally identifiable information stored, collected, or utilized.

       As the owner of the club the Association for Consumer Effectiveness has the legal ability to speak on behalf of all the club members, and thereby make the legal demands on all data brokers that they stop collecting our members personally identifiable information, erase the data they have collected, and collect no more data belonging to our members unless a member grants them permission to once again  collect that members own Personally Identifiable Information in writting. The complete membership agreement which you agree to by joining the club and paying your one time membership fee is found on this page by scrolling down.  

    Unfortunately, in order to keep the lights on we have to charge a one time $9.99 membership fee. However, for the price of less than a meal at a fastfood joint we will inform all 5000+ known to exist data-brokers of your legal invocation of  your right to "Opt-out" in accordance with the California Consumer Privacy Act, and all other privacy laws with proper authority and jurisdiction to legally make said demands upon the data brokering companies on behalf of our members.    

OUR STANDARD ENGAGEMENT LETTER SENT TO ALL DATA BROKERS TO INFORM THEM OF THE ASSOCIATION OF CONSUMER EFFECTIVENESS, THE LEGAL RIGHTS OF OUR MEMBERS, AND OUR INVITATION TO WORK WITH US TO "OPT-OUT" CALIFORNIA CONSUMERS THAT HAVE LEGALLY MADE THAT REQUEST UPON THOSE COMPANIES THROUGH MEMBERSHIP IN THE "OPT-OUT CLUB," IN PROPER ACCORDANCE WITH THE CALIFORNIA CONSUMER PRIVACY ACT.   

LIST OF IDENTIFIED DATA BROKERING COMPANIES 

 The Association has developed several legal tools in Civil law which can and will be deployed if data brokering companies have no fear of the criminal penalties which may occur for their failure to obey "opt-out" requests in accordance with California Consumer Privacy Act 2.0. One of those tools is to seek monetary damages for the unlicensed use of consumer personally identifiable information and each consumers right to profit commercially from their own name and likeness. The tool utilized in these situations are found below, and offered to the general public to cut and paste free of charge.   

Another of our tools we make available to  consumers is the data storage and trespass agreement. See, when companies install cookies or other tracker-ware or even performance reporting software on to your computer those companies are legally utilizing parts of your computer or a portion of your computing power/memory to service their needs exclusively. This is often done without your knowledge or permission. However, the fact that it does occur gives computer owners the legal right to charge memory storage fees, as well as labor costs to those companies who install monitoring software upon a consumers computer. That legally binding contract which those companies become bound by through taking the actions of installing cookies and other monitoring software upon your computer.
