How we Use your Personal Information
Information You Give Us
Mobi PCS collects certain personal information (“Personal Information”) when you purchase a Mobi PCS product or use one of our services. For example, you may provide us Personal Information like your name and date-of-birth when subscribing to service. Or, you may provide us with your credit card number, social security number or bank account information if you initiate automatic payment. Any Personal Information you give to us will be used in accordance with this Policy. We do not market, sell or disclose your personal information to unaffiliated third parties without your express written consent, or electronic equivalent.
We may use your Personal Information to inform you about new products and services from Mobi PCS that we think may be of interest to you, but Personal Information is primarily used for market research, optimizing its systems in order to improve the customer experience, billing purposes, calculate the appropriate taxes, fees and other legal obligations to local, state and federal governmental entities, process orders, protect our rights and property and those of other customers, respond to emergencies or legal processes, or monitor the products and services used by the customer.
Mobi PCS may from time to time contact you using your mobile phone's text messaging service or by phone, mailers (to your residence or business), voicemail or email to inform you about our new products, services and upgrades. If you prefer to hear about new products by email rather than by phone or mailers, you may specify how you prefer to hear from us, in which case we will try to honor that request. Certain text messages sent to you through your phone may give you the opportunity to opt-out of such messages in the future. Remember, however, that you will still receive important customer service text messages and notices as to changes to any of our policies even if you opt-out of receiving information relating to products and services. Mobi PCS may also sell a service where the customer purchases a text messaging package from our promotional partners offering discounts on products and services. If a customer purchases this optional service you will receive promotional text messages for the duration of the service. At no time does Mobi PCS market or advertise via phone, mailers, email or text messaging strictly for the benefit of other companies or unrelated service and product providers.
Mobi PCS occasionally uses your Personal Information to provide important notices to you. For example, Mobi PCS sends monthly text messages to remind our customers that additional pre-payment is due for the upcoming month of service. If you use our automatic payment service, then you generally will not receive a monthly payment reminder. Mobi PCS also sends text messages to update customers as to changes to this Policy or to the Terms and Conditions of Service. The customer is responsible for reading and understanding customer service related notices sent through your mobile phone.
Sensitive Personal Information such as your credit card number, social security number and bank account information are kept confidential. However, Personal Information intended for internal business uses may be disclosed to business partners to the extent necessary to complete a transaction or to perform a service requested by the customer, or in cases of Other Disclosers described below . For example, your credit card information is shared with the business partner to complete and collect payment from you in the event you pay by credit card, or for the download of ring tones and wallpaper provided by a business partner. Certain Personal Information may also be used for third party verification services to prevent fraud and identity theft.
Mobi PCS’s policy is to retain Personal Information for only as long as is necessary for business and legal purposes.
Automatically Collected Information
If you dial 9-1-1 for emergency service, our network knows the approximate location of your phone. This information may be shared with emergency service providers, law enforcement officials and health care facilities.
Information From Outside Sources
Mobi PCS may collect commercially available marketing information about you from third parties and use that information together with the Personal Information you provide to us and automatically-collected information. Mobi PCS collects this information to better serve you and to inform you about new products and services that we believe may be of interest to you based on your likes and preferences. As with other Personal Information collected by Mobi PCS, commercial marketing information that we collect about you will only be used in connection with your mobile service.
Customer Proprietary Network Information ("CPNI")
There is a special category of personal information known as CPNI that is regulated under federal law. CPNI is information that Mobi PCS obtains or creates when it provides mobile wireless telecommunications services to a customer. CPNI includes such information as call records, rate plans and billing details. Mobi PCS may use your CPNI to provide and market mobile phone services to you based on your phone usage and rate plan. You may be able to opt-out of our using CPNI for this purpose. Your CPNI is not disclosed to third parties unless required by law. CPNI may be disclosed to an affiliate of Mobi PCS for the purpose of marketing communications related services to you, but Mobi PCS provides sufficient information to enable you to make an informed decision as to whether you want CPNI used in this manner before sharing the information. Mobi PCS follows your directions if you choose not to allow us to share your information with an affiliate. Mobi PCS limits the use of the personal information provided to an affiliate to the purpose for which the information was sent.
There are times when Mobi PCS is under an obligation to disclose your Personal Information. First, disclosure of your Personal Information may be required by law or in good-faith reliance on legal process, or in connection with various regulatory filings. For example, Mobi PCS discloses Personal Information to comply with court orders or subpoenas. Second, Personal Information may be disclosed to protect Mobi PCS, its users, its affiliates and business partners from fraudulent, abusive, or unlawful use of any service or product. Third, we may share information with affiliates, and third parties who perform services on our behalf, including underlying wireless service providers. Fourth, Mobi PCS, if it is involved in a sale, acquisition, merger or other type of asset transfer with another company or service provider, will notify you via our public website of changes in ownership or uses of Personal Information. Finally, subject to technological limitations, it is possible Mobi PCS may disclose a customer's approximate location and identity if we reasonably believe that an emergency involving immediate danger of death or serious physical injury requires notice to a governmental entity without delay.
