On the dubious function

The dubious function \Delta:\mathbb{N} \rightarrow \mathbb{N} is defined as follows : \Delta(1)=1 and

    \[\mathbf{\Delta(n) = \sum_{\substack{\mathbf{d \mid n } \\ \mathbf{d \neq n} }} \Delta (d)} \quad \text{for} \;\; n>1\]

Evaluate the sum

    \[\mathcal{S} = \sum_{n=0}^{\infty} \frac{\Delta\left ( 15^n \right )}{15^n}\]
