What Information does Grizzly BB collect and how does Grizzly BB use this Information?
Generally, Grizzly BB collects and uses Personal Information internally in connection with providing the Site and Services to User, including to personalize, evaluate and improve the Site and Services, to contact User, to respond to and fulfill User requests, and to analyze how User uses the Site and Services.
Grizzly BB collects and uses various types of information about Users and Users’ use of the Site and Services via various features and registration pages, Help Desk and call centers, postal mail, remote kiosks, the Grizzly BB Facebook Page or other social network platforms, or by other means. Such information is generally classified as Personal Information or Non-Personal Information.
Personal Information is the information User provides to Grizzly BB voluntarily or passively through User use of the Site and/or Services, and information which is directly associated with or reasonably linked to a specific person, computer or device. For example, we collect and use Personal Information through the registration process, when the equipment to provide the Service is installed, maintained or upgraded at User’s premises, and when User contacts Grizzly BB regarding the Site or Services. Through User account settings, Grizzly BB collects and uses Personal Information such as User name, email address, landline and/or wireless telephone number, postal address, billing address (if different) and billing information (such as credit/debit card account number or other financial account information), service address, and the nature of any of User devices or other property making use of the Services. Personal Information also includes customer proprietary network information (“CPNI”) which is collected and used to provide VoIP services to you. CPNI includes any information that relates to the quantity, technical configuration, type, destination, location, and amount of use of our VoIP service, such as call detail, logs, and specifics regarding your VoIP account. User may be required to provide certain Personal Information to assist Grizzly BB in improving User’s Service or troubleshooting problems User is experiencing with the Site or Service, User computer or device, or otherwise to improve the quality of the Services.
Grizzly BB will communicate with User if User has provided Grizzly BB the means to do so such as submission of a User’s postal address, email address or phone number. Grizzly BB will mail, email, call or text User about User’s use of the Services or product improvements or upgrades, and other transactional information about User’s service.
Grizzly BB may also combine Personal Information with additional data obtained from Grizzly BB’s Facebook Pages or other social network platforms, its Affiliates, its Operational Service Providers (third party owned companies that provide or perform services on Grizzly BB’s behalf, to help serve Users better and to perform functions in order to support Grizzly BB’s businesses and operations), or other companies, such as credit bureaus, background check firms, and marketing research companies.
Some forms of Non-Personal Information as described below will be classified as Personal Information if required by applicable law or when such information is directly associated with or reasonably linked to a specific person, computer or device, or is combined with other forms of Personal Information.
When you visit Grizzly BB’s Site, Grizzly BB will collect various types of Non-Personal Information, such as information on Grizzly BB server logs from User’s browser or device, which may include User IP Address, unique device identifier, “cookie” information, the type of browser and/or device you are using to access the Services, and the page or feature User requested. (IP Address and device identifiers are traditionally classified as Non-Personal Information, unless Grizzly is required to do so otherwise under applicable law.) “Cookies” and “web beacons” are text file identifiers Grizzly BB transfers to User’s browser or device that allow Grizzly BB to recognize User’s browser or device and tell Grizzly BB how and when pages and features on the Grizzly BB Site are visited, by how many people, and other activity on the Site.
Technology is improving every day and to improve Grizzly BB’s operations and functions Grizzly BB may introduce new technologies and monitoring techniques without advance notice or consent from User. Grizzly BB may also use third party providers to conduct such internal functions and analyses.
Grizzly BB also collects and uses Grizzly BB Network Information, information about User access to, and use of, the Grizzly BB Network, which may or may not be directly associated with or reasonably linked to a specific person, computer or device. For example, Grizzly may collect use information about the performance of the our equipment installed on User property or at User premises, when User is using the Services, the various devices User is using to access the Services, the amount of data User is transmitting and receiving, the content of the data User are transmitting and receiving, the websites User is visiting, and any other information that is transmitted over the Grizzly BB Network. Grizzly BB may also aggregate Grizzly BB Network Information from multiple Users and share such aggregated Non-Personal information about the overall performance of the Grizzly BB Services and Grizzly BB Network with our Affiliates and other third parties. Aggregated information does not identify a specific individual, computer or device.
We use Network Information to monitor and enhance the performance of the Grizzly BB Network. Grizzly BB will not monitor the content of the websites viewed or email communications as part of Grizzly BB’s standard network management unless there is a complaint or an issue regarding the Services. Generally, Grizzly BB will monitor and preserve the following Grizzly BB Network Information:
- When Customer is using the Services;
- How Customer is using the Services, such as monitoring traffic patterns regarding websites visited, amount of data being sent or received, or other activity;
- The amount of data Customer is transmitting and receiving through the Services; and
- General information regarding the performance of our equipment installed on Customer’s property or at Customer’s premises, and its interaction with the rest of the Grizzly BB Network.
However, Grizzly BB reserves the right to, and may, monitor, access, review and preserve any Grizzly BB Network Information and/or content in the following situations:
- In response to an inquiry from Customer or an another Authorized User on Customer’s account regarding Customer or their use of the Services or problems Customer or they are experiencing using the Services;If Grizzly BB has reason to believe Customer is using the Services in violation of Customer’s Service Agreement or any applicable statutes, rules, ordinances or regulations;
- If Grizzly BB has reason to believe Customer use of the Service is negatively affecting other Customers; or
- When Grizzly BB is required by law or legal process to do so, or when Grizzly BB has a good faith belief that Grizzly is required by law or legal process to do so.
How is Personal Information used for marketing and advertising purposes?
Grizzly BB will use Personal Information to send User marketing and advertising messages related to Grizzly BB’s Services and Site using User’s email address, postal address, or telephone number (for voice, texts, and pre-recorded calls). Grizzly BB may deliver a marketing or advertising message based on User visits to the Grizzly BB Site, which is general advertising or “Contextual Advertising,” defined as advertising based on the subject matter or the content of the specific website page or subject matter. Grizzly BB may also send User “First Party Advertising,” which is advertising that is customized or personalized based on a history of User’s use of our Site or Services (possibly combined with information from our Facebook fan page or other social network platforms). First Party Advertising is based solely on a combination of information Grizzly BB collects from User – not from User’s visits to other websites across the Internet.
User may opt-out of First Party Advertising but not Contextual Advertising. No Personal Information is used to deliver Contextual Advertising; it automatically will appear based on the content or webpage User is viewing and thus is based on the context of that visit. User may continue to receive general advertising if User opts-out of First Party Advertising, it will not be customized or personalized for User.
Grizzly BB does not provide third party “Network Advertising,” which is advertising based on User’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 Grizzly BB does not provide network ads, Grizzly BB does not recognize the “Do Not Track” settings on various Internet browsers. Grizzly BB does not engage or allow third parties to track you across the Internet and across time for advertising purposes.
