2. GENERAL INFORMATION
When Customer uses unWired’s Site, Apps or Services, the Personal Information sent and received will be transmitted using wireless, fiber, coaxial cable and/or satellite technology, and could be subject to interception by unauthorized third parties. While it is unWired’s objective to take reasonable security measures to reduce the risk that unauthorized third parties will intercept any Personal Information, unWired cannot and does not make any guarantee that transmissions via its Site, Services and Apps are 100% secure or error-free.
unWired does not knowingly collect, solicit or use Personal Information from anyone under the age of 16. If Customer is under age 16, please do not attempt to register for the Services or voluntarily submit any Personal Information about yourself to unWired. If unWired learns that Personal Information from a child under age 16 has been collected, unWired will delete that information as quickly as possible to the extent technically feasible. If Customer believes that his/her child under age 16 may have provided Personal Information to us, please contact unWired at email@example.com.
3. TYPES OF PERSONAL INFORMATION WE COLLECT, HOW WE COLLECT IT AND HOW WE USE IT
The following are the different types of Personal Information, the ways and the reasons unWired collects Personal Information:
- • Registration process, billing, and administration: unWired collects Customer name, email address, phone number (wired or wireless), billing address and billing information (such as credit card account number or other financial account information), service address, and the nature of any of Customer devices or other personal property making use of the Service.
Some forms of information as described below will be classified as Personal Information if required by applicable law or when such information is reasonably directly associated with or reasonably linked to a particular consumer, device or household, or is combined with other forms of Personal Information.
- Cookies are text files placed on your computer to collect standard internet log information and visitor behavior information. This information is used to personalize Customer usage of the Site and to compile statistical reports on Site activity. For further information about cookies, visit www.aboutcookies.org or www.allaboutcookies.org.
- Web beacons, also known as web bugs, pixel tags or clear GIFs, are clear graphic images (typically one pixel in size) that are delivered through a web browser or HTML e-mail. The web beacon informs unWired when a Customer visits a particular web page or opens and views a particular e-mail. unWired, or our Operational Service Providers, may include web beacons in marketing e-mail messages or our newsletters to determine whether messages have been opened and links contained within have been clicked on.
- • Network Information Specific for Internet Access Services: unWired also collects Network Information to deliver its high-speed internet access service, which is information about Customers’ access to, and use of, the unWired Network. Network Information may or may not be classified as Personal Information. Network Information is critical for the operation and management of our Services. Generally, unWired will:
- Collect information when and how Customer is using the unWired Network, such as monitoring traffic patterns regarding websites visited, amount of data being sent or received, or other activity.
- Collect information about the performance of the unWired Equipment installed on Customer property or premises, and its interaction with the rest of the unWired Network.
- Collect information regarding the various devices Customer is using to access the unWired Network.
- Monitor or review the content of the data Customer is transmitting and receiving.
- • unWired will not monitor the content of a Customer’s websites viewed or email communications as part of unWired’s daily network management but will do so occasionally to protect the unWired Network from threats or viruses, and in the event there is suspected fraud, unlawful activity, perceived or actual violation of the unWired Acceptable Use Policy or upon a valid request from law enforcement.
unWired retains this Network Information for no longer than twelve (12) months, unless otherwise required by law or for legal or regulatory purposes. unWired may also aggregate Network Information from multiple Customers and will share such aggregated information about the overall performance of our Services, Apps and the unWired Network with our Affiliates, Operational Service Providers, and state and federal regulatory agencies to report on Network performance. Aggregated information does not identify a specific individual, computer, household or device and therefore, is not classified as Personal Information.
unWired reserves the right to, and may, monitor, access, review and preserve any Network Information and/or content in the following situations:
- In response to an inquiry from Customer or an authorized user on Customer’s account regarding use of the Services or problems Customer is experiencing using the Services.
- When unWired has reason to believe Customer is using the Services in violation of the Service Agreement or any applicable law.
- When unWired has reason to believe Customer use of the Service is negatively affecting other Customers.
- When unWired is required by law or legal process to do so, or when unWired has a good faith belief that unWired is required by law or legal process to do so.
Technology is improving every day and to improve the operations and functions of unWired’s Services. Customer understands, acknowledges and agrees that unWired may introduce new technologies and monitoring techniques to assist in reasonable network management without advance notice or consent from Customer. unWired may also use Operational Service Providers to conduct internal analyses of our Site and Services.
4. USE OF PERSONAL INFORMATION FOR MARKETING AND ADVERTISING PURPOSES
unWired does not disclose your Personal Information to third parties for their own marketing or advertising purposes.
unWired will use Customer’s email address, postal address, or telephone number (for voice, texts, automated and pre-recorded calls) and information about a Customer’s current Services to send marketing and advertising messages regarding our Services and Site that will keep Customers informed about related products and services that will best meet a Customer’s future needs. This is called “First Party Advertising,” which is advertising or marketing that is customized or personalized based on a history of Customer’s use of our own Site or Services. First Party Advertising is based solely on a combination of information unWired collects from Customer – not from Customer’s visits to other websites across the Internet. Customer may opt-out of First Party Advertising by sending us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Your denial of unWired’s use of Personal Information for our own marketing or advertising purposes will not change or affect the Services you currently receive from unWired.
We may also serve “Contextual Advertising,” which is advertising based on the subject matter or the content of a specific website page visited by a Customer. Customer may not opt-out of Contextual Advertising. No Personal Information is used to deliver Contextual Advertising; it automatically will appear based on the context of the content or webpage Customer is viewing. Customer will continue to receive general advertising if Customer opts-out of First Party Advertising, it will not be customized or personalized for Customer. (Please see Section 8 below for additional Customer opt-out instructions.)
unWired does not provide third party “Network Advertising,” which is advertising based on Customer’s overall Internet usage across different third party websites or online services. Multiple third party websites and online services are involved in this tailored or personalized advertising process, in essence a “network” of advertising providers. Because unWired does not provide network ads, unWired does not recognize the “Do Not Track” settings on various internet browsers. unWired does not engage or allow third parties to track you across the Internet and across time for advertising purposes.

6. DISCLOSURE OF CUSTOMER PERSONAL INFORMATION TO THIRD PARTIES
- • To Our Affiliates. unWired may rely on Affiliates in order to provide the Services to Customers.

- • For Business Transfers/Restructuring: unWired may choose to purchase or sell assets, or go through some other change of control, including restructuring, bankruptcy, reorganization or other financing arrangements. Customer Personal Information is typically one of the business assets that would be disclosed and transferred to or acquired by a third party for such activity.
- • When Required by Law or in Response to Legal Process: unWired reserves the right to access, read, preserve, and disclose any Personal Information when unWired is required by law or legal process to do so, or if unWired has a good faith belief that unWired is required by law or legal process to do so.
7. HOW WE PROTECT CUSTOMER PERSONAL INFORMATION
unWired protect the privacy of Customer’s account and other Personal Information using reasonable administrative, technical and physical security measures.

- Such texts and pre-recorded telemarketing calls are not conditioned on Customer’s purchase of the Services.

9. USE OF AGGREGATE PERSONAL INFORMATION AND RETENTION OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
unWired may use any aggregated data derived from Customer’s Personal Information but not in a manner that would identify a specific Customer, device or household. unWired may also maintain Personal Information regarding Customer and Customer’s use of the Service after Customer is no longer an unWired customer as required by unWired’s business practices, by law, and/or tax reporting purposes. The information Customer can view, update, and delete may also change if required by law. If Customer has any questions about viewing or updating information unWired has on file about Customer, please contact unWired at email@example.com
Please note that if Customers have not provided unWired with Customer’s email address or Customer has not updated Customer contact information, those legal notices will still govern Customer use of the Service, and Customer is still responsible for reading and understanding all notices posted on unWired’s Site. Customer’s continued use of the Services, Apps or Site after notice of any changes have been provided will indicate Customer’s acceptance of such changes, except where further steps are required by applicable law.
