We collect some information on an anonymous basis and may anonymize the personal information we collect about you into data groups. When we employ non-Broadtela companies to anonymize or aggregate data on our behalf, the requirements for sharing Personal Information with non-companies apply. We may share aggregate or anonymous information in various formats with trusted non-Broadtela entities, with whom we have contracted with to aggregate such data and may work with those entities to do research and provide products and services. When Broadtela jointly provides a service with a non- Broadtela company, your Personal Information may be subject to both this Policy and the privacy policy of the nonBroadtela company. We encourage you to review the privacy policies of any non- Broadtela company with which you do business to determine what information will be collected and how it will be used or disclosed to others.

 

  1. Disclosure – We do not sell your Personal Information to anyone for any purpose, and we maintain information about you in our business records while you are a customer, or until it is no longer needed for business, tax, or legal purposes.

Subject to applicable legal restrictions, such as those that exist for Customer Proprietary Network Information (CPNI), the Broadtela family of companies may share your Personal Information with each other to make sure your experience is as seamless as possible, and you have the full benefit of what Broadtela and its subsidiaries have to offer. Customer Proprietary Network Information (CPNI) is information that relates to the quantity, configuration, type, destination, location and amount of use of the telecommunications services you purchase from us, as well as the information contained in your bills for those services. We collect CPNI in the normal course of providing you with telecommunications services. Your telephone number, name and address are not CPNI.

 

We share your Personal Information only with non-Broadtela companies that perform services on our behalf, and only as necessary for them to perform those services. We require those non-Broadtela companies to protect any Personal Information they may receive in a manner consistent with this policy, and we do not provide Personal Information to non-Broadtela companies for the marketing of their own products and services without your consent.

  1. Internet-based Advertising – Broadtela uses cookies to store information that can be used to serve ads relevant to your interests, and to help our advertisers measure the effectiveness of a particular advertisement. This helps us tailor ads to your interests. These cookies can not only help us ensure that you do not repeatedly see the same ads, but (if you opt-out) they can also help us prevent you from seeing targeted ads at all. The information collected with these cookies is not personally-identifiable, and we do not associate it with your Personal Information.

 

You may opt out of Broadtela’s use of data for internet-based advertising. Please keep in mind that even after you opt-out, you may still continue to see ads, but they will no longer be tailored to your interests.

 

Opting-out also does not remove Broadtela cookies. They will remain on your computer, but we will not use the data connected to your cookie for our services. Please note that if you delete your cookies, you will need to opt-out again to avoid being served targeted ads in the future. Users can control the use of cookies at the individual browser level. If you reject cookies, you may still use our site, but your ability to use some features or areas of our site may be limited.

 

We have relationships with other third party advertising companies to place advertisements on this website and other websites, and to perform tracking and reporting functions for this website and other websites. These third party advertising companies may place cookies on your computer when you visit our website or other websites so that they can display targeted advertisements to you. These third party advertising companies do not collect Personal Information in this process, and we do not give any Personal Information to them. However, this Privacy Statement does not cover the collection methods or use of the information collected by these entities. For more information about third party advertising, please visit the Network Advertising Initiative (NAI). Opt out of being targeted by many third party advertising companies by visiting NAI’s Consumer Opt-Out orTRUSTe’s Opt-Out.

 

  1. Exclusions – Information that you provide to non-Broadtela companies is not covered by this Policy. For example: When you download applications or make an online purchase from a non-Broadtela company while using Broadtela’s services, the information collected by the non-Broadtela company is not subject to this Policy. If you use public forums — such as social networking services, Internet bulletin boards, chat rooms, or blogs on Broadtela or non-Broadtela websites — you should be aware that any Personal Information you disclose publicly can be read, collected, or used by others. Once you choose to reveal Personal Information on such a site, the information is publicly available, and Broadtela cannot prevent distribution and use of that information by other parties.

 

Broadtela may enter into written product or service agreements with business customers that contain specific provisions related to the confidentiality, security or other handling of information. When provisions of a written product or service agreement differ from or conflict with the provisions of this Policy, the terms of the written agreement will apply. In all other instances, the terms of this Policy apply.

 

  1. Security – We have established electronic and administrative safeguards designed to secure the information we collect, to prevent unauthorized access to or disclosure of that information and to ensure it is used appropriately. Although we strive to keep your Personal Information secure, no security measures are absolute, and we cannot guarantee that your Personal Information will never be disclosed in a manner inconsistent with this Policy (for example, as the result of unauthorized acts by third parties that violate the law or this Policy). We will make reasonable attempts to notify you if we determine that Broadtela has experienced a security breach and there is a reasonably likely risk of identity theft, or where otherwise required by law.

 

  1. Policies – We have established policies and practices to meet the expectations of Customers and potential customers who have expressed a desire to limit certain types of solicitation communications from Broadtela, LLCluding marketing contacts made via telephone, e-mail and text messaging. You also can request to be removed from these telemarketing lists when you receive a marketing or promotional call. Where required by state laws and/or regulations, we honor requests from businesses to be removed from our telemarketing lists.

 

The FTC maintains a National Do Not Call Registry at donotcall.gov, and your state may maintain its own Do Not Call Registry. Putting your number on these Registries also may limit our telemarketing calls to that number.

 

Our practices as described above are designed to satisfy state and federal legal requirements limiting marketing contacts. You should know that those laws and regulations — such as the requirements governing the state and federal “Do Not Call” lists — generally permit companies to contact their own current and, in some cases, former customers, even when those customers are listed on the federal and state “Do Not Call” lists. Similarly, restricting our use of your CPNI will not eliminate all types of Broadtela marketing contacts.

 

  1. Online Advertising – Broadtela works hard to detect and prevent junk e-mails (also referred to as “spam” e-mails) from ever reaching your computer. However, if you are receiving unwanted spam from a Broadtela e-mail address, please contact us for assistance at support@Broadtela.com.

 

  1. Account Set-Up – When selecting User names and passwords for Broadtela accounts, you should choose words or characters that are not obvious. Likewise, you should always keep Personal Information such as account numbers, Usernames, passwords or similar information in a secure place and not share the information with others.
  2. Policy Changes – Information about our Customers and Users, including Personal Information, may be transferred as part of any merger, acquisition, sale of company assets, or transition of service to another provider, as well as in the unlikely event of an insolvency, bankruptcy, or receivership in which Customer and User records would be transferred to another entity as a result of such a proceeding.

 

We reserve the right to update this Privacy Policy as necessary to reflect any changes we make and to satisfy legal requirements. If we make a material change to this Policy, we will post a prominent notice of the change on our websites, and provide you with other appropriate notice and choice regarding the use of your information, at least 30 days before the effective date.

 

Please check our websites periodically for changes to this Privacy Policy.
