Privacy and Cybersecurity Policy

This Agreement applies to all transactions you have with the Purple Switch Telecom Inc. operating under the brand of “Ringer”.

  1. Purple Switch Telecom Inc. (“PST” or “we” or “us” or “our” or other similar pronouns) takes your privacy and cybersecurity matters very seriously. Please read the following to learn more about our Privacy Policy (“Policy”). This Policy details how we receive, collect and use information in connection with the provision of PST products and services (“the service”) including the Ringer application (“Ringer”).
  2. By using the Service, you are accepting the policies and practices described in this Policy, as such Policy may be amended from time to time. Each time you use the Service, you agree and expressly consent to our collection, use and disclosure of the information that you provide as described in this Policy.
  3. To be clear about the terminology we are using, when we use the phrase “Personal Information” in this Policy, we mean information about you that is personally identifiable, like your name, address, e-mail address, billing information, or phone number, as well as other non-public information that is associated with this personal information.
  4. When we use the phrase “Anonymous Information” in this Policy, we mean information that is not personally identifiable, or linked to your Personal Information such as aggregated information, general demographic information and IP addresses. Anonymous Information does not necessarily enable identification of individual persons.
  5. If you are a user accessing the site or service from outside the European Union or any other region with laws or regulations governing personal data collection, use, and disclosure that differ from that of the law in England and Wales, please be advised that through your continued use of the site and service, you may be transmitting your personal information to countries where laws regarding processing personal information may be less stringent than the processing of personal information in your country and you hereby consent to such transmission of personal information.

COLLECTION AND USE OF INFORMAITON

  1. When you install the Ringer or register to use our services, you will be asked to provide us with your phone number, name and other details and to allow us access to your mobile device’s address book.
  2.  A copy of the phone numbers and names in your address book (but not emails, notes or any other Personal Information in your address book) will be stored on our servers and will only be used to:
    a. notify you when your contacts become active on the PST network,
    b. indicate which of your contacts is already a PST network user,
    c. correctly display the name of each contact as it appears in your address book when a call is received.
  3.  The copy of your address book (names and phones) is stored on a live database. This database does not have a “historical backup”. If you delete the address book from our servers, it will be deleted instantly and permanently.
  4.  Your phone number will be used for identification purposes as your PST network identity.
  5.  Since PST users may add your PST number to their address book and see that you registered to PST, we do not consider the fact that your PST number exists on PST as private information.
  6.  PST may interact with your phone’s SMS inbox or call history for the sole purpose of service activation, placing incoming messages in your inbox, reading the contents of the activation SMS message sent to you by PST. We will not access the contents of any other SMS messages.

CALL DETAILS RECORD

  1.  We maintain a Call Detail Record database for each message and call that goes through the system.
  2.   We retain this information so that it can be published to you through the use of our web site and services and so that we may perform normal billing functions for any calls that incur charges at our normal published rates.

PRESENCE INFORMATION

  1.  Other users will see your connection status (whether you are online or not – and if not, when was the last time you were connected to the service) as well as whether you saw messages they sent to you. You may disable this via the settings.

LOCATION INFORMATION

  1.  PST allows you to attach your location information to messages you send to other users or send a specific location message. If you choose to share your location with a specific user or group of users your location will be retrieved from your device and sent to our system for onward delivery to this group. PST will only use this location for this particular purpose and delete it from its servers once the message is delivered. For the avoidance of doubt, PST will not share your location information and will not use it for any purpose except the one specifically requested by you.

OTHER SERVICES

  1. In the event we make systems, web sites, message boards and forums available to you (collectively, “Forums”), you will be solely responsible for the information and any other content you post on and through these Forums and should be aware that when you voluntarily disclose Personal Information on or through these Forums, such information is generally accessible to, and may be collected and used by, other users.
  2. This may result in unsolicited messages from third parties, and such messages are beyond our control. We do not exercise control over any users or Site visitors, and in no way are we responsible, nor do we have any liability whatsoever, for any collection or use of information you may disclose through the Forums.
  3. This Policy does not cover such disclosure of information. You are encouraged to exercise discretion when providing personal information about yourself in and through Forums. Please do not post any Personal Information on this Site that you expect to keep private.
