fonoUC is committed to the privacy of our users.
Your privacy is important to us and we provide this notice explaining our online information practices and the choices you can make about the collection and use of the personal information you submit on our Sites. We collect two types of information from visitors to our Sites: (1) Personally Identifiable Information and (2) Non-Personally Identifiable Information, such as your IP address or cookies.
Personally Identifiable Information
"Personally Identifiable Information" is information that identifies you personally, such as your name, address, telephone number, email address, or company name. fonoUC collects and stores the personally identifiable information that you have provided to us. Here are some examples of manners in which we may collect personally identifiable information on our Sites:
We may collect your name, address, e-mail address, cell phone number and MSISDN (mobile station integrated services digital network number) to provide you with our services and to set up your account
We may collect your name and email address if you sign up to receive a newsletter
We may collect your name, address, credit card and billing information if you purchase products or services from us
We may collect your company name, annual revenues, number of employees, or industry when you register your business to receive our products or services
We may collect information from your contact lists in order to identify recipients of your messages, however, you will retain ownership of such information
We may collect your download history, texts, messages, customer generated content and/or information about your interests in and use of various products, programs, and services to better tailor our services to you
The above list provides an example of the personally identifiable information that may be collected on our Sites. We will not collect any personally identifiable information about you unless you provide it to us voluntarily. If you do not want fonoUC to have access to your personally identifiable information, please do not provide it to us.
Non-Personally Identifiable Information
"Non-Personally Identifiable Information" can be technical information or it can be demographic information, such as your age, gender, or interests. Non-personally identifiable information does NOT identify you personally. Here are some examples of the non-personally identifiable information that is collected via our Sites and a description of how this information is used:
Internet Protocol (IP) Address
Your IP address is a number that lets computers attached to the Internet know where to send you data—such as the webpages you view. We use this information to deliver our webpages to you upon request, to tailor our Sites to the interests of our users and to measure traffic within our Sites. Your IP address may also be used for identification and security purposes.
Information Collected Automatically
fonoUC may also (i) automatically collect non-personally identifiable information about your use of the Sites, such as the domain from which you access the Internet, the date and time you access the Sites, and the Internet address of the website from which you linked directly to our Sites; and (ii) use data capture and analysis tools, and other similar tools, to extract, compile and analyze any non-personally identifiable data or information resulting from your use of the Sites and the services offered thereon (collectively “Blind Data”). To the extent that any Blind Data is collected by fonoUC, such Blind Data shall be solely owned by fonoUC and may be used by fonoUC for any lawful business purpose, including, without limitation, analyzing and enhancing the Sites and services offered hereby, disclosing such Blind Data to third parties for a variety of purposes, including online behavioral advertising. For example, third party vendors, including Google, show our ads on sites on the Internet.
Personally Identifiable Information
We use your personally identifiable information that is collected on these Sites primarily for the following purposes:
To deliver services, information, newsletters or software you request or purchase
To contact you about programs, products, features or services in which we believe you may be interested (such as future promotional materials), or for other purposes disclosed from time to time

To fulfill the terms of a promotion
To ensure our Sites are relevant to your needs

To allow you access to limited-entry areas of the Sites
To contact you in response to sign up forms and information request forms such as the “Contact Us” form
Non-Personally Identifiable Information
Non-personally identifiable information is used as described above and in other ways as permitted by applicable laws, including combining non-personally identifiable information with personally identifiable information (except with respect to non-personally identifiable information collected from children under the age of 13, which is explained at Section D below).
C. Sharing And Disclosure Of Information
Personally Identifiable Information
We may share or disclose your personally identifiable information in the following instances:
To fulfill a service to you. We may share the personally identifiable information you provide with your cell phone service provider or their partner and subcontractor companies. Additionally, if you email us a question, we may use your email address to process your request and respond to your question. Also, if you are entering a sweepstakes or contest, we may use your personally identifiable information in order to fulfill the terms of that promotion. This means that we may share the information for prize fulfillment purposes or with mail carriers. We also may share your information with the co-sponsor of that promotion.
Testimonials. We post customer testimonials on our website which may contain personally identifiable information. We do obtain the customer's consent via email prior to posting a name along with a testimonial. If you wish to request to have your testimonial removed you may contact us.
To affiliates, strategic partners, agents, third party marketers or other unaffiliated parties who are offering products or services that we believe may be of interest to you or who require your personally identifiable information for research, administrative and/or internal business purposes. These parties may use your personally identifiable information to contact you with an offer or advertisement related to a product or service, or they may use such information for their own research, administration or business purposes. If you do not want us to share your personally identifiable information in this manner, please do not provide us with this information.
To unaffiliated third-party service providers, agents or independent contractors who help us maintain our Sites and provide other administrative services to us (including, but not limited to, order processing and fulfillment, providing customer service, maintaining and analyzing data, sending customer communications on our behalf, and entry collection, winner selection and prize fulfillment for contests, sweepstakes and other promotions). For example, we use an email service provider to send out emails on our behalf. We also use Live Chat to assist you if you have questions while using our site or regarding our service. When you sign up for our services, we will share your personally identifiable information as necessary for the third party to provide that service. We seek to ensure that these unaffiliated third parties will not use the personally identifiable information for any other purpose than to provide the administrative services for which they are responsible. Because such unaffiliated third-party service providers that help us administer our Sites will have access to users' personally identifiable information, if you do not wish for our unaffiliated third-party service providers to have access to your information, please do not register or submit any personally identifiable information to us.
To complete your purchase. If you choose to make a purchase on the Sites, we may collect from you your credit card number, billing address and other information related to such purchase, and we may use such collected information in order to fulfill your purchase. We may also provide such information, or other personally identifiable information provided by you, to unaffiliated third parties as necessary to complete your purchase (for example, to process your credit card).
We may disclose information about our users, including personally identifiable information; (i) when requested by governmental or quasi-governmental authorities conducting an investigation; (ii) if required to do so by subpoena, court order or legal process; (iii) to verify or enforce compliance with the policies governing our Sites and applicable laws; or (iv) to protect against misuse or unauthorized use of our Sites. We also may disclose user information whenever we believe disclosure is necessary to limit our legal liability; to protect or defend our rights or property; or protect the safety, rights, or property of our users.
We may sell, transfer, or otherwise disclose user information, including personally identifiable information, to a successor entity in connection with a corporate merger, consolidation, the sale of substantially all assets, or other corporate change respecting fonoUC, the Sites and/or the services offered hereby.

This statement applies solely to information collected on the Sites. The Sites may contain links to third party websites, whose information practices may be different than fonoUC’s. Visitors should consult such third-party sites’ privacy notices as fonoUC does not have any control over information that is submitted to, or collected by, these third parties. fonoUC does not make any representations or warranties as to the security of any information (including, without limitation, credit card and other personal information) you might be requested to give any third party. These links are provided solely as a convenience to you and not as an endorsement by fonoUC of the contents on such third-party websites. fonoUC cannot ensure that you will be satisfied with any products or services that you purchase from a third-party site that links to or from the Sites, since these sites are owned and operated by independent retailers.fonoUC is not responsible for the content of linked third-party sites and does not make any representations regarding the content or accuracy of materials on such third-party sites. fonoUC has not taken any steps to confirm the accuracy or reliability of any of the information contained in such third-party sites. If you decide to access linked third-party sites, you do so at your own risk. fonoUC strongly encourages you to make whatever investigation you feel necessary or appropriate before proceeding with any online or off-line transaction with any of these third parties.
Data Security Policy
The importance of security for all personally identifiable information associated with visitors to the Sites—as well as fonoUC customer information, such as cell phone numbers, texts, messages, credit card information, and addresses, and other account data—is of utmost concern to fonoUC, and we have implemented, and periodically review, certain physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to help prevent unauthorized access and maintain data security. Your payment and personal information is always safe. Our Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software is the industry standard and among the best software available today for secure commerce transactions. It encrypts all of your personal information, including credit card number, name, and address. Unfortunately, due to the open nature of Internet communications, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be secure, and thus we cannot guarantee that communications between you and fonoUC will be free from unauthorized access by third parties. Visitors of the Sites and fonoUC customers use the Sites at their own risk.
Your Acceptance Of These Terms
We may update this privacy statement to reflect changes to our information practices. If we make any material changes we will notify you by email (sent to the email address specified in your account) or by means of a notice on this Site prior to the change becoming effective. We encourage you to periodically review this page for the latest information on our privacy practices.
