Automatically Collected Information
Automatic Information Collection
As is customary for websites, the Site will collect information, including technical and routing information about your computer, without being prompted. We use this information to optimize our Site for our users’ use. If, however, you choose to browse the internet anonymously or opt-out, we will not collect technical or routing information about your device.
Cookies & Web Analytics
Some information, including but not limited to IP addresses, operating systems, browsers, and browsing patterns, is either tracked or collected using “cookies” (which are small data files that a website places on your hard drive for record-keeping purposes) or “web beacons” (which are transparent pixel images that are used in collecting information about website usage). We use these to ensure our content improves and meets your, and other visitors’, needs. While most of the cookies we use will “disappear” when you finish browsing, we also use persistent cookies. Persistent cookies stay on your computer simply to ensure we recognize your device when you revisit our Site.
Please note that there are options on most browsers (including, but not limited to, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Safari, and Internet Explorer) to disable cookies, but it may impact or limit your use of certain Site functions. To learn more about your ability to manage cookies and web beacons, please consult the privacy features in your browser.
Other Information We Collect
When you create an account on the Site, we may access, request, or collect personal information provided by you, including your name, email address, location, user’s phone or contact book data, user’s inventory of installed apps, and user’s screen recording. This information is only collected when you present it to us, and we may use it for a variety of reasons, as explained in more detail below.
We may also use data insights we attain based on correlation and analytics of your information, which may be used in aggregated and dis-aggregated formats, to obtain trend analytics, or to enhance the Site or provide Site features.
Use of Personally Identifiable Information
We may use (and, where specified, share) your personal information for the following purposes:
We may use personal information to provide you with services that you have ordered or requested. We also use financial/credit card and payment information to process payments made through the Site and may need to share some of this information with delivery services, credit card clearing houses, and other third parties to complete the transaction. We enter into agreements with any such third parties to ensure that they will not further collect, sell, or use your personal information except as necessary to perform the agreed-upon services.
When you contact us, we may use personal information to reply and provide you with the services or information you requested. We also may use your personal information to collect feedback on our Site and policies.
We reserve the right to use your personal information and browsing behavior to personalize our Site and improve the overall user experience. We also may use personal information to evaluate responsive rates or gauge the usability of our Site.
In order to stop malicious, deceptive, fraudulent, or illegal activity from occurring on our website, we may use identifying information to monitor users’ behavior on the Site. We regret that our attempts to prevent malicious, deceptive, fraudulent, or illegal internet activity may cause some users to be suspended from the Site and its features.
If you have concerns about your personal information, we will work with you to review, revise and correct the personal information we have on file. Contact us via phone at 866-353-7209 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org to request that we correct any of your personal information.
Subject to applicable law, you may have the right to request and obtain information about, or copies of, the personal information we have regarding you, where said information comes from, the business or commercial purpose for collecting this information, the third parties with whom this information is shared with, and whether our source of information is publicly accessible. Lastly, you may have the right to request information about when we typically delete stored information, or request that information be anonymized or destroyed. Depending on the situation and applicable laws, we may comply with your request to delete your personal information and direct any third parties to delete your personal information as well.
All of our processing is in furtherance of a legitimate business interest under applicable law. We recognize that in certain circumstances a user may withdraw consent if such consumer wishes to do so, and that such consumer maintains a right to his or her own data.
We do not sell your personal information.
We may need to disclose your personal information, as described herein. Most of our disclosures are necessary to complete a transaction or provide the services you have requested. Nonetheless, we may disclose your information if needed to comply with a court order, law, legal proceeding, or request from the government. We also reserve the right to disclose your information if we have the reasonable belief that said disclosure is fundamental to the safety of individuals associated with Ontario Tel or others unaffiliated with the company.
We do not respond to web browser “do not track” signals or other similar mechanisms.
Children Under the Age of 13
This Site is not designed for children under the age of thirteen, and we do not collect information about children specifically. If you believe that we have inadvertently collected information from a child in that age demographic, please contact us. Our policy is to delete any information collected from a child under the age of 13 as quickly as possible.
Mobile App Privacy
When using our mobile app, we may collect general information about your session as outlined in the sections above. We may also collect information voluntarily supplied by the user.
We do not share any of the information collected by our mobile apps, except where necessary in order to develop or maintain our apps.
Our Site includes social media features, such as Facebook and Instagram. If you interact with any of these features, the feature may collect your IP address and the page you are visiting on the Site, and may set a cookie to enable the feature to function properly. These social media features may be hosted by us or a third party. To the extent they are hosted by a third party, your interactions with the features are governed by the privacy policies or other policies of the companies providing them, and you should review those privacy policies or other policies to learn about how the information is used and shared.
When you send an email to us, you consent to receive reply communications from us or our providers through the same electronic media. We may retain the content of the email, your email address, and our response in order to better service your needs or for legal and regulatory reasons.
Electronic forms of communication such as email, text message, social media messaging, or similar forms of communication are inherently unsecure. Please refrain from submitting sensitive personal information (such as account number or Social Security number) via email or similar methods of communication. We do not request sensitive personal information from anyone in an email. Therefore, if you receive an email that appears to be from us that solicits any such sensitive personal information from you, please do not respond in any way to the suspect email but immediately forward it to us at email@example.com, and then delete the email from your mailbox.
Third Party Advertisers
We utilize standard and reasonable security methods, including technical and physical protections, to prevent the theft, access, alteration, destruction, or disclosure of your information. Our methods are frequently and repeatedly tested and improved. Nonetheless, no communication using the internet is perfectly secure. We will attempt to protect your information, but we cannot guarantee the safety of any information you send to us, and you do so at your own risk
