The following principles apply to the personally identifying information we ask for and that you provide. “Personally identifying information” is information that individually identifies you, such as your name, phone number, physical address or email address.
We collect limited non-personally identifying information your wireless phone service makes available whenever you participate in one of our services. This log information includes your phone number, your mobile phone carrier, the date and time of your participation and your inbound message. We use this information to operate, develop and improve our services.
When we require personally identifying information, we will inform you about the types of information we collect and how we use it. We hope this will help you make an informed decision about sharing your personal information with us.
We do not rent or sell your personally identifying information to other companies or individuals, unless we have your consent. We may share such information in any of the following limited circumstances:
- We have your consent.
If you have an account, we may share the information submitted under your account among all of our services in order to provide you with a seamless experience and to improve the quality of our services. We will not disclose your account information to other people or non-affiliated companies, except in the limited circumstances described in this Policy or with your consent. We may store and process personal information collected on our site in the United States or any other country in which Mobile News 2U or its agents maintain facilities. By using our services, you consent to the transfer of your information among these facilities, including those located outside your country.
We will not provide or release your personal information to a third party unless you have optedin for a promotion. Traffic data and personal data may be used by us for editorial and feedback purposes, for marketing and promotional purposes, for statistical analysis of users’ behavior, for product development, for content improvement, and to inform advertisers of how many visitors have viewed their advertisements. In these cases, data is reported on an aggregate (i.e., group) basis. We may share this information with other parties, but when we do so it is not traceable to any particular user. In addition, traffic and personal data may be used to customize and tailor your experience on your phone, by displaying content that we think you may be interested in.
We may provide you with chat features, instant messaging, message boards, and/or news groups. Please remember that any information that you may disclose in the public areas will become public information, and any information that is disclosed in a private forum will become accessible to all other members of that forum. We do not intend to monitor, moderate, screen, or otherwise be responsible for the contents of postings. You should exercise caution when deciding to disclose your personal information in public or private forums.
We take appropriate security measures to protect against unauthorized access to or unauthorized alteration, disclosure or destruction of data.
We restrict access to your personally identifying information to employees who need to know that information in order to operate, develop or improve our services.
Updating your information
We provide mechanisms for updating and correcting your personally identifying information for many of our services. For more information, please see the help pages for each service or call our support line at (888) 767-8726.
Opt-In and Opt-Out Choices
We will always provide you with the opportunity to opt in and opt out of receiving further communication from our partners and us. Using the original service, you may send a request to remove your information from our database, stop future communication, limit the use of your information, or to review and modify information that you may have previously provided. The format of such opt-out requests will be provided when you opt in via the service used (wireless, SMS, internet, etc.). In the event that you cannot utilize the original service to opt out, we will immediately honor any opt-out requests.
