Contacts411 Privacy Policy

This privacy policy (“Privacy Policy”) applies to the website https://contacts411.com as well as the services provided by Infinite Knot, LLC (herein referred to as Contacts 411). This Privacy Policy explains how information is collected, used and disclosed by Contacts 411 (“Contacts411,” “we,” or “us”) with respect to your access and use of our Application and Service, as described in our Terms of Use. Visit our website for details on how information is collected, used and disclosed, at https://contacts411.com (the “Website”).

1. The Data We Collect Through the Application and the Service

Contacts411 is a smart Contacts data update application. In order to provide this Service to you, we require that you submit to us certain of your iOS device Contacts information, such as your contact names, landline and mobile phone numbers, email addresses and U.S. Postal addresses. Additionally, you will have the option to submit contact information that you collect that is not included in your Contacts app. Collectively this contact information is “Submitted Data”.

We do not retain Submitted Data from your contacts (the “Contacts”), we only access Submitted Data to complete your requested data and data updates and resolve any usage or billing questions. If you provide your own contact information within the Submitted Data, we will treat that as Submitted Data as well.

When you download and use our Application on your mobile device, we automatically collect information about the type of the device you use and operating system version, as well as your IP address, and any other information that you provide to us.

We do not ask for, nor receive nor store, any credit card information. Contacts 411 Service fees are paid by the user to the Apple iTunes Store. Users must have an established account with Apple to use the Service, and Contacts 411 is not a party to such accounts. Apple, a third-party vendor, requires disclosure of, and stores, credit card information to the benefit of the user and Contacts411. Any questions or issues arising from transactions paid for with the user’s credit card(s), including privacy matters, must be directed to the Apple iTunes Store.

The Service and Application described in the Terms of Use may also collect certain information automatically, including the type of device you use, the IP address of your mobile device, information about your mobile operating system or browser, and information about the way you use the Service and Application. We collect this information to better understand how our users interact with the Service and Application, and how we might improve such interactions.

Likewise, if you request it as a supplemental service (which involves updating the contact data you already have for your contacts) we may access, temporarily store and maintain references to the Submitted Data. We may do so, for instance, as a feature of the Service to notify you when additional data about your contacts becomes available, or to permit you to access your Submitted Data so that you may restore it, at your preference and only with your permission.

If we should determine in the future to store and maintain any of your Submitted Data, we will send you an advance notification to provide you with the opportunity to delete your contacts from the Service.

2. How We Use the Data You Submit To Us

We use your Submitted Data to provide you with the Service described in the Terms of Use, or described and consented to by you through our Application interface or other communications between you and us. If you are a user of our Application or Service and you’ve given us your User Data, we also may contact you regarding the Application or Service – we may, for instance, from time to time ask for your feedback on the Service, send you surveys, or send you information to keep you updated on what’s going on, including new features, offers and updates.

We may additionally request directly from you your own contact information for use in product improvement and marketing activities, including asking for your feedback on the Service, sending you surveys, and sending you information to keep you updated on what’s going on, including new features, offers and updates.

3. How We Obtain the “Returned Data”

We license contact information about people and businesses from reputable data licensing companies. As evidenced by our business model, we believe that users should have appropriate control and transparency regarding how data about them is used, and we seek that our partners and licensors uphold the same high standards.

4. Opt Out of Information Sharing

If you are a consumer, e.g., a member of the general public, who wishes to be removed from our consumer database, please go to our opt-out page here.

If you have subscribed to our Service, we may send you service related email announcements on rare occasions when it is necessary to do so. For instance, if our service is temporarily suspended for maintenance, we might send you an email or text message. You do not have an option to opt out of these emails, which are not promotional in nature. We likewise may send you promotional emails, in which case you may unsubscribe to receiving promotional emails from us through a link we provide in those emails.

5. Delete Your Contacts

We do not currently store your Submitted Data on our systems, except briefly to process your requests and provide you with Returned Data. However, we may in the future store the Submitted Data (or your Returned Data) on our systems at your request, as necessary to provide you with additional features or functionality. If we do so, we will provide you with a means to delete your Submitted Data from our Service. We will notify you of such means through an email, a posting to our website or through our Service. Please note that in that event, such deletion shall only serve to delete the actual bits and bytes of information that you have submitted to us, from your contact lists: we will retain those contacts’ information to the extent that we independently received and maintain them for other users or licensors. Beyond use of your contact information for the purpose of completing your Contacts 411 transactions, we will retain and use those contacts’ information only as absolutely necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our general business agreements while remaining respectful of your contact information.

6. How We May Share and Store Your Submitted Data

We may disclose any information that we collect (regardless how we received it) to employees, contractors and service providers who help us to operate our businesses, communicate with you and/or to provide the Application and Service to you. For instance, we may provide your Submitted Data to entities providing server and hosting support, tech support, billing and collection, security and auditing services, customer support, or data updating. Certain of these entities may in turn use your Submitted Data for internal operational, testing and evaluation purposes related to the service they provide and help us to provide (but not for their own marketing purposes).

We do not rent, lease or sell your contact information or your Submitted Data to anyone.

In addition, we reserve the right to disclose your contact information or your Submitted Data in the following unlikely circumstances:

1. in response to a subpoena, bankruptcy proceedings, court order or other governmental request, in which case we will, as law and exigencies permit, provide you with notice and an opportunity to object;

2. where we believe in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property, rights or safety of any person.

3. in the event that, as a business, our assets or stock are acquired by another party, in which case any information we hold (including customer and transaction histories) would be one of the assets transferred to and acquired by the third party, and potentially any acquirer of Contacts411 may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy (or for other purposes permitted by law).

We may connect this to other information we collect about you or you provide to us, such as your account information or other information you have provided to us. We may use any of this information (alone or combined) to operate our business, provide our services, better understand how our visitors use the Contacts411 App, Service and website and market to those visitors, and to prevent fraud or other inappropriate use of our website. From time to time, we may use or share non-personally identifying information in the aggregate (e.g., to analyze or share information about the usage of our website or the Service).

YOUR CALIFORNIA RIGHTS AND CHOICES

Without being discriminated against for exercising these rights, California residents have the right to request that we disclose what personal information we collect from you, to delete that information, and to opt-out of the sale of your personal information, subject to certain restrictions. You also have the right to designate an agent to exercise these rights on your behalf. This section describes how to exercise those rights and our process for handling those requests.  (To the extent permitted by applicable law, we may charge a reasonable fee to comply with your request.)

A. Right to request access to your personal information

California residents have the right to request that we disclose what categories of your personal information that we collect, use, or sell. You may also request the specific pieces of personal information that we have collected from you. However, we may withhold some personal information where the risk to you or our business is too great to disclose the information.If you would like to see the personal information on you provided by Contacts411, you may do so as outlined here Consumer Access and Right to Know Request

B. Right to request deletion of your personal information

You may also request that we delete any personal information that we collected from you, such as if you have been a customer of ours.  (Note that this is different from your right to “opt out” of us selling your personal information, which is described below; also note that we do not generally collect personal information directly from consumers.)  However, we may retain personal information for certain important purposes, such as (a) to protect our business, systems, and users from fraudulent activity, (b) to address technical issues that impair existing functionality (such as de-bugging purposes), (c) as necessary for us, or others, to exercise their free speech or other rights, (d) to comply with law enforcement requests pursuant to lawful process, (e) for scientific or historical research, (f) for our own internal purposes reasonably related to your relationship with us, or to comply with legal obligations.  Additionally, we need certain types of information so that we can provide our Services to you.  If you ask us to delete it, you may no longer be able to access or use our Services.

C. How to exercise your access, opt-out and (if applicable) deletion rights

California residents may exercise their California privacy rights by sending an email to optoutrequest@contacts411.com submitting your request on our Opt Out Page, or your access or deletion request to our Consumer Access portal here, or by contacting us at (844) 763-3411. For security purposes (and as required under California law), we will verify your identity – in part by requesting certain information from you — when you request to exercise your California privacy rights.  For instance, if you request categories or specific pieces of personal information we have received about you, you may need to confirm your possession of an identifier (such as an email address) or to provide a piece of identification that confirms you are the person you claim to be. Once we have verified your identity, we will respond to your request as appropriate:

- Where you have requested the categories of personal information that we have collected about you, we will provide a list of those categories.

- Where you have requested specific pieces of personal information, we will provide the information you have requested, except to the extent that we could not comply with your request.

D. Right to nondiscrimination.

We will not deny, charge different prices for, or provide a different level of quality of goods or services if you choose to exercise these rights.

E. Right to Opt-out of the sale of your personal information.

California residents may opt out of the “sale” of their personal information. California law broadly defines what constitutes a “sale” – including in the definition making available a wide variety of information in exchange for “valuable consideration.” Depending what information we have about you, and whether we have included any of it in our marketing products and services, we may have sold (as defined by California law) certain categories of information about you in the last 12 months, as described in the above table in Section 2 of this Addendum, titled “OUR DISCLOSURE AND SALE OF PERSONAL INFORMATION”.

If you would like to opt out, you may do so as outlined on the Opt Out Page.

F. Information About Persons Under 16 Years of Age

We do not knowingly collect personal information from minors under 16 years of age in California unless we have received legal consent to do so. If we learn that personal information from such California residents has been collected, we will take reasonable steps to remove their information from our database (or to obtain legally required consent).

G. Authorized Agents

You may also designate an agent to make requests to exercise your rights under CCPA as described above. We will take steps both to verify the identity of the person seeking to exercise their rights as listed above, and to verify that your agent has been authorized to make a request on your behalf through providing us with a signed written authorization or a copy of a power of attorney.
