IDT Domestic Telecom, Inc.
Effective and Updated August 29, 2016
We may update this Policy from time to time and you are advised to review it periodically for changes. Any updated Policy will be posted at www.bossrevolution.com/en-us/privacy-policy. Unless otherwise defined in this Policy, terms used in this Policy have the same meanings as in the Boss Revolution User Agreement, which can be found at www.bossrevolution.com/en-us/terms.
This Policy applies to:
- our Boss Revolution customers in the United States;
- visitors and users of www.bossrevolution.com, any other Boss Revolution website and any Boss Revolution mobile application (collectively, the “Boss Revolution Websites”); and
- users of our Boss Revolution products and services (collectively, the “Services”) whether purchased on the Boss Revolution Websites or through an authorized Boss Revolution retailer.
This Policy does not apply to our customers that only use our Money Transfer service and the personal information collected during Money Transfer transactions. The policies and procedures governing the personal information collected during Money Transfer transactions are governed by IDT Payment Services, Inc. and IDT Payment Services of NY LLC’s Privacy Statement, which can be found at www.bossrevolution.com/en-us/services/money-transfer.
Information We Collect and How We Use It
We collect and use both Personal Information and Non-Identifying Information about you. “Personal Information” means information either on its own or in conjunction with other data that enables a specific person to be identified, but does not include “de-identified,” “anonymous,” or “aggregate” information, which is not associated with a specific person. “Non-Identifying Information” means information that by itself cannot be used to identify a specific person (e.g., zip code, location information and individual preferences). Certain Non-Identifying Information would be considered a part of your Personal Information if it were combined with other identifiers (for example, combining your zip code with your street address) in a way that enables you to be identified. But the same pieces of information are considered Non-Identifying Information when they are taken alone or combined only with other non-identifying information (for example, your viewing preferences). We may combine your Personal Information with Non-Identifying Information and aggregate it with information collected from others who use the Services to attempt to provide you with a better experience, to improve the quality and value of the applicable Service and to analyze and understand how our Services are used. We may also use the combined information without aggregating it to serve you specifically, for instance to deliver a product to you according to your preferences or restrictions.
Our primary goals in collecting information from you are to provide and improve our Services, to administer your account, and to provide better targeted advertising. As used in this Policy, the terms “use,” “using” and “processing” information include using cookies or other similar technologies on a computer/phone/device, subjecting the information to statistical or other analysis and using or handling information in any way, including but not limited to, scanning, collecting, storing, evaluating, modifying, deleting, using, combining, disclosing and transferring information within our organization or among our affiliates within the United States or internationally.
We collect and use information about you in the following ways.
1. Information Collected When You Communicate with IDT
