We collect personal information about you in various ways. We may also get information from other sources, including from affiliates, and may combine it with information we collect about you. Personal information does not include information that is not used to identify you, including aggregate or anonymous information.
Information You Give Us. The personal information we collect includes information you give us, such as name, postal address, telephone number, e-mail address, date of birth, social security number or other government identification number, demographics, activities, location information, and personal preferences. You may give us information in a variety of ways, including when you sign up for services, or communicate with Customer Care.
Information That We Automatically Collect. We automatically receive certain types of information
TYPES OF INFORMATION WE COLLECT
We may collect different types of information based on your use of our products and services and on our business relationship with you.
Account Information. Account information includes:
Technical & Usage Information. Technical and usage information related to the services we provide to you, including information about how you use our networks, services, products or websites. Some examples include:
Web Browsing & Mobile Application Information such as IP addresses, URLs, data transmission rates and delays. We also learn about the pages you visit, the time you spend, the links or advertisements you see and follow, the search terms you enter, how often you open an application, how long you spend using the app and other similar information.
Location Information includes your ZIP-code and street address, as well as the whereabouts of your wireless device. Location information is generated when your device communicates with cell towers, WiFi routers or access points and/or with other technologies, including the satellites that comprise the Global Positioning System.
Other companies may also be able to locate your device. For example, your handset manufacturer and your operating system provider may be able to locate your device. If you download mobile applications, those apps may be able to obtain your location directly from your handset or the operating system. Mobile applications that give you access to your employer’s network may also give your employer the ability to locate your device. We urge you to review policies of all providers.
Accuracy of wireless location information may differ. It depends on the technology we are using. For example, we can locate your device based on the cell tower that is serving you. The range could be up to 1,000 meters in any direction from the tower in urban areas, and up to 10,000 meters in rural areas. Wi-Fi networks provide more accurate location information, associating you with the place where the network is located – like a coffee shop or areas within or around that place.
Services such as 411, 911, a “friend locator” application or a navigation/mapping application, require more precise information. So for those we use a more precise estimate of location by associating the service cell tower ID with other information, like the latitude and longitude of the other, radio frequency parameters, GPS information and timing differences in radio signals. Depending on a variety of factors, those methods may estimate the location of your device to within 30 to 1000 meters.
Other companies may also be able to locate your device.
We collect information about you in the following ways:
Information You Provide. We collect information that you provide when you apply for, purchase, or use our services or products, such as your personal contact and billing information, credit information, or other information you may provide to us.

HOW WE COLLECT INFORMATION

USE OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
We use your personal information for a variety of purposes, including providing you with services. We use your personal information to do things like:
CUSTOMER PROPRIETARY NETWORK INFORMATION (CPNI)
Customer Proprietary Network Information, or “CPNI”, is a subset of Personal Information that is generated in connection with the telecommunications services we provide to you. CPNI includes, for example, call details, call location information, and certain information about your rate plans and features. CPNI does not include your name, address, and phone number.
Under federal law, you have a right, and we have a duty, to protect the confidentiality of CPNI and we have adopted policies and procedures designed to ensure compliance with those rules. We will not intentionally disclose your CPNI to third-parties without your permission, except as allowed under FCC rules, applicable law, or explained in this Policy. However, if you are the primary account holder, you may designate other “authorized users” (for example, a spouse) to access and manage your account information, including CPNI.
INFORMATION WE SHARE
We do not share information that identifies you personally with third parties other than as follows: Affiliates. We may share personal and non-personal information with affiliated entities for approved business purposes.
customers and other group account holders (“Group Accounts”). The account holder for Group Accounts is the entity or person that buys the service or product for its employees, family members or other authorized users.

If so, we may share with that Group Account holder customer registration and other information related to your use of our services.

Business Transfers. Personal information about you may be disclosed as part of any merger, acquisition, sale of company assets or transition of service to another provider. In the unlikely event of an insolvency, bankruptcy or receivership, personal information may also be transferred as a business asset.
NETWORK AND INFORMATION SECURITY
We maintain a variety of physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards. These safeguards help protect your personal information from loss, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction. Be sure to use a strong password to access your information on MyCellularOne.com and not one you use for other services.
We do not sell your personal information or any web browsing activity information aggregate or personal to any third parties for advertising purposes.
OUR PRIVACY COMMITMENTS
Although we strive to keep your Personal Information secure, no security measures are perfect, 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 act by third parties that violate the law or this Policy). Laws and regulations guide us in how to give you notification when certain types of sensitive information are involved in a security breach. We will provide you with notice in accordance with these laws and regulations.
We are happy to help you review and correct the Personal Information we have associated with your account and billing records within a reasonable time. Please contact Customer Care for more information.
INFORMATION CHOICES AND CHANGES
We offer you choices regarding how we contact you for marketing-related communications and whether we use information regarding your online or mobile web activities for marketing purposes. We do not use information to make ads you see on your mobile device more relevant and to produce or facilitate production of business and marketing reports shared with third parties. However, other sites and apps that you use may collect that information.
Cellular One websites are not structured to attract children under the age of 13. Cellular One believes there is no information on its website which is inappropriate or objectionable for viewing by children. Cellular One does not knowingly collect information from children under the age of 13. If you allow a child to use your device or our services, you should be aware that their personal information could be collected.
