1. Overview on Collection and Sharing of Information
Information that we gather from Users falls into two broad categories: Personal Data and Aggregate Data.
2. Collection and Sharing of Personal Data
You can request to review, change, update or delete Personal Data that you have previously submitted to us. We will take reasonable steps to verify your identity before we grant you access to your Personal Data and comply with your request. Please be aware that even after such a request is processed, VISIT FARGO-MOORHEAD may, for a time, retain residual information about you in our backup and/or archival copies of our database. To review, change, update or delete Personal Data that you have previously submitted to us please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org to begin the process.
3. Collection and Sharing of Aggregate Data
Aggregate Data is information that does not personally identify you such as frequency of visits to the VISIT FARGO-MOORHEAD Sites, page views, VISIT FARGO-MOORHEAD Services most frequently accessed, your Internet Protocol (IP) address, referrer addresses, where your computer is routing from, your browser type and version, or your operating system and platform (“Aggregate Data”). We use Aggregate Data to help us develop and improve the VISIT FARGO-MOORHEAD™ Services overall.
Cookies. Cookies are pieces of information that websites transfer to your computer’s web browser for storage on your computer’s hard drive. VISIT FARGO-MOORHEAD uses persistent cookies on the VISIT FARGO-MOORHEAD Sites. A persistent cookie will remain on your hard drive even after you leave a given website and close your browser. When you return to the same website that placed the cookie on your hard drive, the website may then access the cookie.
Click-Throughs. VISIT FARGO-MOORHEAD or a third party authorized by VISIT FARGO-MOORHEAD may send email messages which use a “click-through” text or graphic link that will take you to content on the VISIT FARGO-MOORHEAD Sites. When you click on this link, you pass through our Email Marketing Service Provider’s server before arriving at the destination web page. If we use this feature, we will track click-through data to help determine our users’ interest in particular topics and measure the effectiveness of our customer communications. If you prefer not to be tracked by using click-throughs, do not click text or graphic links in the email that is sent to or is received by you.
4. Opting Out of Certain Communications
Users are given the choice to opt-out of certain optional communications from us and our affiliates and marketing partners. To “opt-out” you may send an opt-out request to us at email@example.com with the word “unsubscribe” in the email subject line. Users should allow a reasonable amount of time for the opt-out request to be processed. Please be aware that your opt-out choice may mean that certain features and functions of the VISIT FARGO-MOORHEAD Services will no longer be available to you.
5. Sharing, Selling and Trading Aggregate Data Collected Online With Third Parties
VISIT FARGO-MOORHEAD takes the privacy of our Users very seriously. To improve User experience, VISIT FARGO-MOORHEAD may share your Personal Data with third parties to provide targeted marketing by VISIT FARGO-MOORHEAD to you. However, we do not sell, rent or otherwise provide your Personal Data to third parties for marketing purposes without your prior consent. We may however sell, share or trade Aggregate Data to third parties.

Third Party Marketing. If you are a California resident, you have the right to receive: a) information identifying all third-party companies to which we may have disclosed, within the past year, personal information pertaining to you for those companies’ direct marketing purposes; and b) a description of the categories of personal information disclosed. To obtain such information, please email your request to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Do Not Track. VISIT FARGO-MOORHEAD does not track its customers over time and across third party websites to provide targeted advertising and therefore does not respond to Do Not Track (DNT) signals. However, some third party sites do keep track of your browsing activities when they serve you content, which enables them to tailor what they present to you. Third parties that have content embedded on VISIT FARGO-MOORHEAD’s Sites such as a social feature may set cookies on your browser or obtain information about the fact that a web browser visited a specific VISIT FARGO-MOORHEAD site from a certain IP address. Third parties cannot collect any other personally identifiable information from VISIT FARGO-MOORHEAD’s Sites unless you provide it to them directly.
6. Social Media
Hashtag Rights Request FAQ #YesFM: For Fargo-Moorhead Convention & Visitors Bureau, doing business as the Fargo Moorhead Convention Office.
So we would like to share your photo. Here are some questions that you may be curious about!
Why are you asking for the rights to my photo/video? We really like your photo and think it shows a really beautiful representation of Fargo-Moorhead locations, attractions, and businesses. We hope you’ll allow us to potentially share your photo/video with the world to inspire people to visit the Fargo-Moorhead tri-city area.
Where and how will you use the photo/video? We may just be looking to share the photo/video on our Instagram feed or on our Instagram Stories. Other places we may use the photo/video include but are not limited to our social media channels (including Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, TikTok, Pinterest, etc.)—in both organic and paid posts—, here on https://www.fargomoorhead.org, our Visitor Information Guide, Dining Guide and/or digital ad placements. You could be asked in two ways about your photo/video and our access level.
*Content is permitted to be shared via a CrowdRiff Gallery living on https://www.fargomoorhead.org website in full, including blog pages, dedicated pages, etc. The photo will link outright to the original post with the original username tagged to the post.
Content is not permitted for social media usage across other social media channels. If the Fargo-Moorhead Tourism Office wishes to use it for “marketing efforts,” an additional request must be given to the user with additional acceptance of the terms and conditions as it relates to this new request.
If we have asked for a #YaSureFM or #YouBetcha: We are requesting that the content is permitted to be potentially used in marketing efforts and material*. Photo/video credit will be placed when permitted and/or available.
Marketing efforts or materials that may feature your photo/video include but are not limited to our social media channels (including Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, TikTok, Pinterest, etc.)—in both organic and paid posts. You may also see here on TempeTourism.com via a CrowdRiff Gallery, on our Visitor Information guide (produced in print and/or digital) and/or Visual Guide, and digital ad placements.
If we requested full rights to your photo/video and would prefer to have your photo/video only shared limited on social channels or Instagram only, please send a direct message on Instagram making the request and a new comment will be submitted to acquire limited rights.
Will you let people know it’s my photo/video? On social media channels, we will tag your social media handle in the caption. We take measures to make sure if you’re on another social channel with a different handle, we tag you appropriately. There can be instances when your photo/video may be used but a limited number of placements may not allow for it. We will as often as we can though.
Will you edit my photo/video? Some placements may require us to crop the photo/video to better fit in the display dimensions or otherwise make changes, but we’ll always try to keep the editing to a minimum. You took a great picture/video and we don’t want to mess with it!
