In order to access some LumenVox services, you will be asked to sign in with an email address and password, which we refer to as your login. In most cases, these logins will be part of the LumenVox Network, which means you can use the same login to sign in to many different LumenVox services, as well as those of select LumenVox partners. By signing in on one LumenVox service, you may be automatically signed into other LumenVox services. If you access our services via a mobile phone, you may also use your telephone number and a PIN as an alternative credential to your username and password. As part of creating your login, you may also be requested to provide questions and secret answers, which we use to help verify your identity and assist in resetting your password, as well as an alternate email address. Some services may require added security, and in these cases, you may be asked to create an additional security key. Finally, a unique ID number will be assigned to your logins which will be used to identify your logins and associated information.
Sometimes we ask you to provide personal information, such as your email address, name, work address or telephone number. We may also collect demographic information, such as your ZIP code, preferences, interests and favorites. If you choose to make a purchase or sign up for a paid subscription service, we will ask for additional information, such as your credit card number and billing address, that is used to create a LumenVox billing account.
We may collect information about your visit, including the pages you view, the links you click and other actions taken in connection with LumenVox sites and services. We also collect certain standard information that your browser sends to every website you visit, such as your IP address, browser type and language, access times and referring website addresses. When you receive newsletters or promotional email from LumenVox, we may use web beacons (described below), customized links or similar technologies to determine whether the email has been opened and which links you click in order to provide you more focused email communications or other information.
In order to offer you a more consistent and personalized experience in your interactions with LumenVox, information collected through one LumenVox service may be combined with information obtained through other LumenVox service. We may also supplement the information we collect with information obtained from other companies. For example, we may use services from other companies that enable us to derive a general geographic area based on your IP address in order to customize certain services to your geographic area.
LumenVox collects and uses your personal information to operate and improve its sites and deliver the services or carry out the transactions you have requested. These uses may include providing you with more effective customer service; making the sites or services easier to use by eliminating the need for you to repeatedly enter the same information; performing research and analysis aimed at improving our products, services and technologies; and displaying content and advertising that are customized to your interests and preferences.
We also use your personal information to communicate with you. We may send certain mandatory service communications such as welcome letters, billing reminders, information on technical service issues, and security announcements. Some LumenVox services, such as Technical support and Marketing, may send periodic member letters that are considered part of the service. We may also occasionally send you product surveys or promotional mailings to inform you of other products or services available from LumenVox and its affiliates.

Except as described in this statement, we will not disclose your personal information outside of LumenVox and its controlled subsidiaries and affiliates without your consent. LumenVox does not share your contact information with third parties for marketing purposes, but instead may give you a choice as to whether you wish to receive communications from LumenVox on behalf of external business partners about a partner's particular offering (without transferring your personal information to the third party). Some LumenVox services may be co-branded and offered in conjunction with another company. If you register for or use such services, both LumenVox and the other company may receive information collected in conjunction with the co-branded services. We occasionally hire other companies to provide limited services on our behalf, such as handling the processing and delivery of mailings, providing customer support, hosting websites, processing transactions, or performing statistical analysis of our services. Those companies will be permitted to obtain only the personal information they need to deliver the service. They are required to maintain the confidentiality of the information and are prohibited from using it for any other purpose.
We may access and/or disclose your personal information if we believe such action is necessary to: (a) comply with the law or legal process served on LumenVox; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of LumenVox (including the enforcement of our agreements); or (c) act in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of LumenVox services or members of the public.
