Privacy Policy

Local Hero will post your activities on the this site, and as such, The Internet, aka "The World Wide Web", aka "dub-dub-dub" - IF you don't mark them as Private. Your Name, Points, and Activity on Local Hero will be displayed on this website and potentially on other websites down the road. Like Google, because they creep and crawl around and index website data. If you don't want your Name displayed, make sure you set up a Nickname. We promise not to sell or give your email to evil companies. Or even good companies. We're not into selling customer info. However, if someone offers us a ton of money to buy Local Hero, we'd sell the database with your name and activity along with it. We'd notify you if this were to happen. but we'd be doing the happy dance. It most likely won't materialize, but who knows? Stranger things have happened. We may dance anyway. We're not building Local Hero to get rich, we're doing it to encourage folks to buy local.
