We receive and store certain types of information whenever you interact with our website, such as your IP address or domain name. We use “cookies” like many other websites. Through “cookies” we obtain certain types of information when your web browser accesses our website. There are utilities designed to help you visit websites anonymously. Although we cannot provide you with a personalized experience or certain services at our website if we cannot recognize you, we want you to be aware that these tools exist.
What are “Cookies” and how do we use them?
Cookies are alphanumeric identifiers that we transfer to your computer’s hard drive through your web browser. Your web browser stores the information on your hard drive and when you return to that website later, the cookie is transmitted back to the server that originally sent it to you. Cookies provide a way for a server to recall a previous request or previous registration, or to keep track of a transaction as it progresses, so that information does not have to be repeated. To be notified when you are about to receive a cookie, you can configure your browser to alert you when a website is attempting to send you a cookie and at that time you will have the option of refusing the cookie. You can check your hard drive for cookie files, on the “cookies.txt” file on your PC’s hard drive; or under “magic cookies” on a Macintosh.
Does our website share information it receives?

These companies and organizations may use the information we share to provide special opportunities and offers to you.
Our website may also share information with companies that provide support services to us (such as a printer, mailing house or web host) or that help us market our products and services. These companies may need information about you in order to perform their functions. These companies are not authorized to use the information we share with them for any other purpose.
Protection of Our Website, and Others
We may disclose information you provide to our website when we believe that disclosure is appropriate to comply with the law; to enforce or apply the terms and conditions, this policy, and other agreements; or to protect the rights, property or safety of our website, our users and visitors, or others.

Links to and from other websites
We recognize the particular importance of protecting privacy where children are involved. We are committed to protecting children’s privacy on the Internet and we comply fully with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act. We do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from children under the age of 13. If a child has provided our website with personally identifiable information, we ask that a parent or guardian call 860-632-9494 extension 8271 or contact us by email and we will delete the information about the child from our files.
Our Commitment to Data Security
We have appropriate physical, electronic, and procedural security safeguards to protect and secure the information we collect.
In order to maintain the authenticity and confidentiality of the information you provide online to the Wireless Zone Group, including the Wireless Zone Group’s online purchase order forms, the Wireless Zone Group utilizes secure server technology which uses a secure socket layer (SSL) protocol to secure a connection between your browser and the Wireless Zone Group’s Web server. The SSL protocol protects the integrity of your correspondence with the Wireless Zone Group by providing three major security capabilities:
The information send between your browser and our Web server is encrypted so an unauthorized third party may not read the contents of the message.
While SSL is active, you can view the identity and owner of the Web server your browser is connected to by clicking on the closed padlock. This information is contained in a digital certificate issued by a public certificate authority and exchanged with your browser when the SSL connection is established.
SSL provides a mechanism which verifies that the data has not been tampered with between the time the sender sent it and the receiver received it.
There may be a slight change in the appearance of your browser when you enter the online purchase order forms. This change may vary depending on the type and version of the browser you use. While the SSL connection is active, you will see a note at the bottom of each page indicating a secure connection is active. You will also see a closed padlock at the lower left or right corner of your browser (depending on which browser you are using).

INFORMATION WE COLLECT
We typically collect four kinds of information about you when you use our Services:
- Personal Data: Our definition of personal data includes any information that may be used to specifically identify or contact you, such as your name, address, or phone number. Personal data also includes information that may be used to identify you indirectly, including by reference to an online identifier, location data, or services identification number. As a general policy, we do not automatically collect your personal data when you visit our Website. In certain circumstances, we may request, allow, or otherwise provide you an opportunity to submit your personal data in connection with a feature, program, promotion, or some other aspect of our Services. For instance, you may: (a) provide your name, mail/shipping address, email address, credit card number, and phone number when registering with our Services and executing a Membership Agreement; (b) provide certain demographic information about yourself (e.g., age, gender, purchase preference, usage frequency) when using our Services; or (c) post a general comment and/or recommendation on our Services. Certain information may not be personal data when standing alone (e.g., your age), but may become so when combined with other information (e.g., your age and name). Whether or not you provide this information is your choice; in many instances, however, this type of information is required to enter into a Membership Agreement or participate in a particular activity, realize a benefit we may offer, or gain access to certain content or features available through our Services.
- Usage Data: Our definition of usage data is any information that does not personally identify you (also referred to herein as “non-personal data“) that is automatically collected anytime you visit the Website, including information such as browser type and referring websites. Usage data can include certain personal data that has been de-identified; that is, information that has been rendered anonymous. We obtain usage information about you from information that you provide us, either separately or together with your personal data. We also automatically collect certain usage data from you when you access our Services with your Equipment. This information can include, among other things, your wireless carrier, your IP addresses, the type of browser you are using (e.g., Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari, Opera), the operating system you are using (e.g., Vista, Windows XP, Mac OS, Android, iPhone) on the Equipment, the domain name of your Internet service provider (e.g., CenturyLink, Google, Cox, AOL), the search terms you use on our Services, the specific web pages you visit, how much you use our Services, and the duration of your visits.
- Financial Data: Our definition of financial data is any information needed to facilitate the purchase of items or services, including credit card information. Financial data may constitute personal data, depending on the circumstances of its collection and use.
- Wireless Carrier and Service Information. Our definition of wireless carrier and service information is any information collected by us or any Partner pursuant to provision of any Services which includes, but is not limited to, the make and model of any Eligible Device (as defined below), serial number of any Eligible Device, and location of a wireless retailer servicer. “Eligible Device” hereunder means any smartphone, tablet, or mobile broadband device identified by you in any Membership Agreement.
HOW WE USE & DISCLOSE THE INFORMATION COLLECTED
- Personal Data: The personal data you voluntarily submit to us is generally used to provide services pursuant to the Membership Agreement, carry out your requests, respond to your inquiries, better serve you, or in other ways naturally associated with the circumstances in which you provided the information. We may also use this information to later contact you for a variety of reasons, such as customer service, providing you promotional information for our products or those of any Partner, our parent company, subsidiaries, or other affiliated companies (“affiliated companies“), or to communicate with you about content or other information you have posted or shared with us via use of our Services.
You may opt-out from receiving future promotional information from us or our affiliated companies, or direct that we not share your information with any affiliated companies, as set forth below.
In certain instances, we may also share your personal data with third parties performing functions on our behalf (or on behalf of our affiliated companies) or accessing the Services (e.g., vendors that process credit card orders, provide our Services, administer our promotions, provide us marketing or promotional assistance, analyze our data, assist us with customer service). These third parties agree to use this information, and we share information with them, only to carry out our requests or provide Services.
- Usage Data: We use usage information in a variety of ways. For example, we may use usage information to evaluate use of our Services (e.g., visits to our Website, use of our Applications), analyze site traffic, track purchases, understand customer needs and trends, carry out targeted promotional activities, and to improve our Services. We may use your usage information by itself or aggregate it with information we have obtained from others. We may, among other things, share your usage information with any Partner, our affiliated companies, allow third parties to collect such information directly from you.
- Wireless Carrier and Service Information: We use, and our Partners use, wireless carrier and service information in order to provide services pursuant to the Membership Agreement.
- General Uses and Disclosures: We use and share the information, including personal data, we collect from users for the purposes described below. To perform the following tasks, we may transfer your data to countries outside the United States and EEA using appropriate safeguards when necessary. When necessary, we will obtain your consent before using your data for these purposes:
– Provision of Services to Website Users. If you use the Website, we will use your information to process and respond to your requests, comments, inquiries, and other forms you submit through the Website.
– Processing Online Purchases. We use your Financial Data to process any purchases made on the Website, including disclosure of your Financial Data to third-party payment processors.
– Improving our Services. We use your information to enhance our understanding of our users’ preferences and optimize the performance of the Services.
– Disclosures to Service Providers. We share your information with third-party service providers that assist us with hosting and maintaining the Website, processing credit card information, analyzing online activity on the Website, marketing our services, and managing our daily business operations and delivery of the Services. We share only the minimum amount of personal data with these service providers that they need to perform their tasks. We also enter into contracts with these service providers that require them to protect personal data.
– Compliance with Legal Obligations. We will share your information with law enforcement, government officials, regulatory agencies, or other parties when we are required to do so by applicable law. We will also disclose your information to comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, subpoena, or legal process.
– Other Legitimate Interests. We will use and disclose your information when necessary for our legitimate interests, as long as such interests are not overridden by our users’ interests, rights, and freedoms with respect to their personal data.
CCPA Notice of Collecting and Sharing Personal Information
The chart below lists the categories of Personal Information we have collected, the sources from which we have collected Personal Information, and our purposes for sharing Personal Information, within the last twelve (12) months:
C. COOKIES AND PREFERENCE-BASED ADVERTISING
Web beacons are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, and may be used to track the online movements of users, when an email has been opened, and to provide other information. Web beacons can recognize certain types of information on your computer such as cookies, the time and date a page is viewed, and a description of the page where the web beacon is placed. We may use web beacons to improve your experience with the Website, including to provide you with content customized to your interests and to understand whether users read email messages and click on links contained within those messages so that the Website can deliver relevant content. Our web beacons may collect some contact information (for example, the email address associated with an email message that contains a web beacon).
Other examples of the information we collect and analyze in this manner include: the Internet Protocol (IP) address used to connect your Equipment to the Internet; computer and connection information such as browser type and version, operating system, and platform; your activities on our Website, including the products you view or searched for, as well as the URL you come from and go to next (whether this URL is on our Website or not); and cookie number. It is important to note that the cookies and Web beacons that we use do not contain and are not tied to personal data or personally identifiable information about you.
A couple of important notes about this opt-out tool: (1) it includes all the advertising networks that we may work with, but also many that we do not work with; and (2) it may rely on cookies to ensure that a given advertising network does not collect information about you (“Opt-out Cookies”) – an explanation of how Opt-out Cookies work can be found on www.aboutads.info. Therefore, if you use different Equipment, change web browsers, or delete these Opt-out Cookies from your computer, you will need to perform the opt-out task again.
- Do Not Track Features: Certain browsers may offer you the option of providing notice to websites that you do not wish for your online activities to be tracked for preference-based advertising purposes (“DNT Notice”). Some browsers are, by default, set to provide a DNT Notice, whether or not that reflects your preference. Providing DNT Notice is often touted as a means to ensure that cookies, web beacons, and similar technology are not used for preference-based advertising purposes – that is, to restrict the collection of non-personally identifiable information about your online activities for advertising purposes. Unfortunately, given how preference-based advertising works, DNT Notices may not effectively accomplish this goal. For this and a variety of other reasons, with respect to our Website, we do not take any action based on browser based DNT Notices. Rather, if you do not wish to participate in preference-based advertising activities, you should follow the simple opt-out process identified below.
D. OTHER USES & INFORMATION
- IP Addresses: An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to the Equipment whenever you access the Internet. Web servers (computers that serve up web pages) automatically identify the Equipment by its IP address. When visitors request pages from our Website, our servers typically log their IP addresses. We collect IP addresses for purposes of system administration, to report non-personal aggregate information to others, and to track the use of our Services. IP addresses are considered non-personally identifiable information and may also be shared as provided above. It is not our practice to link IP addresses to anything personally identifiable; that is, the visitors’ session will be logged, but the visitor remains anonymous to us.
- Email Communications: If you send us an email with questions or comments, we may use your personal data to respond to your questions or comments, and we may save your questions or comments for future reference. For security reasons, we do not recommend that you send non-public personal information, such as passwords, social security numbers, or bank account information, to us by email. We may send you emails for a variety of reasons –such as emails in response to your request for a particular service or your registration for a feature that involves email communications, that relate to purchases you have made with us (e.g., product updates, customer support), about our other products, services, or events, or when you consent to being contacted by email for a particular purpose. In certain instances, we may provide you with the option to set your preferences for receiving email communications from us – that is, agree to some communications but not others. You may “opt-out” of receiving future commercial emails from us by clicking the “unsubscribe,” “opt-out,” or similar link included at the bottom of most emails we send, or as provided below; we reserve the right, however, to send you transactional emails such as customer service communications.
- Transfer of Assets: As we continue to develop our business, we may sell or purchase assets. If another entity acquires us or all (or substantially all) of our assets, the personal data and non-personal data we have about you will be transferred to and used by this acquiring entity, though we will take reasonable steps to ensure that your preferences are followed. Also, if any bankruptcy or reorganization proceeding is brought by or against us, all such information may be considered an asset of ours and as such may be sold or transferred to third parties.
The features, programs, promotions, and other aspects of our Services requiring the submission of personally identifiable information are not intended for children. We do not market and do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from children under the age of 13. Certain benefits of our Services may be restricted to adults, age 18 or older. If you are a parent or guardian of a child under the age of 13 and believe he or she has disclosed personally identifiable information to us, please contact us as provided in Section H below. A parent or guardian of a child under the age of 13 may review and request deletion of such child’s personally identifiable information as well as prohibit the use thereof. If we discover that we have inadvertently collected information from a child under 13 years of age, we will promptly take all reasonable measures to delete such information from our systems.
F. KEEPING YOUR INFORMATION SECURE
We have implemented security measures we consider reasonable and appropriate to protect against the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information under our control. Please be advised, however, that while we strive to protect your personal data and privacy, we cannot guarantee or warrant the security of any information you disclose or transmit to us online or through our Services, and are not responsible for the theft, destruction, or inadvertent disclosure of your personal data. In the unfortunate event that your “personal data” (as the term or similar terms are defined by any applicable law requiring notice upon a security breach) is compromised, we may notify you by email (at our sole and absolute discretion) to the last email address you have provided us in the most expedient time reasonable under the circumstances; provided, however, delays in notification may occur while we take necessary measures to determine the scope of the breach and restore reasonable integrity to the system as well as for the legitimate needs of law enforcement if notification would impede a criminal investigation. From time to time we evaluate new technology for protecting information, and when appropriate, we upgrade our information security systems.
G. OTHER SITES/THIRD-PARTY LINKS
Our Services may link to or contain links to third-party websites, including the websites of our Partners, that we do not control or maintain, such as in connection with purchasing products we may recommend or reference via our Services and/or advertisements you may see while using our Services. We are not responsible for the privacy practices employed by any third-party website. We encourage you to note when you leave our Website and to read the privacy statements of all third-party websites before submitting any personally identifiable information.
H. CONTACT & OPT-OUT INFORMATION
ATTN: Compliance Officer
525 Congressional Blvd
Carmel, IN 46032

- Charge you different prices or rates for goods or services, including through granting discounts or other benefits, or imposing penalties.
- Provide you a different level or quality of goods or services.
- Suggest that you may receive different price or rate for goods or services or a different level or quality of goods or services.
However, we may offer you certain financial incentives permitted by the CCPA that can result in different prices, rates, or quality levels. Any CCPA-permitted financial incentive we offer will reasonably relate to your personal information’s value and contain written terms that describe the program’s material aspects. Participation in a financial incentive program requires your prior opt-in consent, which you may revoke at any time.
Exercising Your Rights to Know or Delete
To exercise your rights to know or delete described above, please submit a request by either:
- Calling us at 855-799-8301
- Emailing us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
- Mailing a request to:
ATTN: Compliance Officer
10300 Kincade Dr.
Fishers, IN 46037
Only you, or someone legally authorized to act on your behalf, may make a request to know or delete related to your personal information.
You may make a request to know twice within a 12-month period. Your request to know or delete must provide sufficient information that allows us to reasonably verify you are the person about whom we collected personal information or an authorized representative. Additionally, you must describe your request with sufficient detail that allows us to properly understand, evaluate, and respond to it.
We cannot respond to your request or provide you with personal information if we cannot verify your identity or authority to make the request and confirm the personal information relates to you.
We will only use personal information provided in the request to verify the requestor’s identity or authority to make it.
Response Timing and Format
We will confirm receipt of your request within ten (10) business days. If you do not receive confirmation within the 10-day timeframe, please contact us at email@example.com.
We endeavor to substantively respond to a verifiable consumer request within forty-five (45) days of its receipt. If we require more time (up to another 45 days), we will inform you of the reason and extension period in writing.
If you have an account with us, we will deliver our written response to that account. If you do not have an account with us, we will deliver our written response by mail or electronically, at your option.
Any disclosures we provide will only cover the 12-month period preceding our receipt of your request. The response we provide will also explain the reasons we cannot comply with a request, if applicable. For data portability requests, we will select a format to provide your personal information that is readily useable and should allow you to transmit the information from one entity to another entity without hindrance.
We do not charge a fee to process or respond to your verifiable consumer request unless it is excessive, repetitive, or manifestly unfounded. If we determine that the request warrants a fee, we will tell you why we made that decision and provide you with a cost estimate before completing your request.
K. RETENTION OF PERSONAL DATA
For Data Subjects from the EEA and Canada, we will retain your Personal Data only as long as necessary to process your request or other submission, fulfill the terms of our service contract with you, and comply with applicable law.
L. HOW TO WITHDRAW CONSENT
At any time, Data Subjects from the EEA or Canada may withdraw consent you have provided to us for using, disclosing, or otherwise processing your Personal Data. You may withdraw your consent by contacting us pursuant to Section H above.
Please note that your withdrawal of consent to process certain Personal Data about you (1) may limit our ability to deliver services to you and (2) does not affect the lawfulness of our processing activities based on your consent before its withdrawal.

Data Subjects from Canada may file a complaint with the Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada. Additional information can be found here: https://www.priv.gc.ca/en/privacy-topics/privacy-laws-in-canada/.
