Personal information of all users of the Services is collected, used and disclosed by us as described in this policy statement. This policy statement does not cover the treatment, collection, use or disclosure of personal information by companies that we don’t own or control, or people that we don’t manage.
1. Gathering/tracking personal information
We collect personal information about you that you provide us. For example, some of the purposes for which we collect such information are: to register your Nextivity product; create and manage your account on our WavePortal website; provide feedback in our online surveys; request product information; and/or request contact from a Nextivity representative. In addition, whenever you interact with the Services, we automatically receive and record information from your browser or device, which may include your IP address, geolocation data, device identification, “cookies” information, the type of browser you’re using to access our Services, and the page or feature you requested. Nextivity collects and uses your personal information in connection with the Services, to deliver the products and services you have requested, and as explained in more detail below. In certain cases, we may share some of your personal information with third parties, but only as described below.
Please note that Nextivity may contact you about matters pertaining to your ownership of Nextivity products, or your interactive use of the company’s website(s); for example, access to download new product software releases. If you do not want to receive communications from us, please indicate your preference by sending an email to: [email protected]
The personal information that may be gathered includes your name, telephone number(s), street address, mailing address and e-mail address. You may also be asked to furnish other information about yourself such as your job category, industry type, company name and job title, and/or the number of people in your company.
2. Sharing personal information
Telecommunications operators such as AT&T or T-Mobile (an “Operator”) may be required under applicable law (for example, 47 CFR 20.21(h) in the United States) to register users of a Nextivity Product. If, through the Services, you choose to (i) register your Nextivity Product with an Operator or (ii) create an account on Cel-Fi’s WavePortal, then we may disclose information you provide to us in connection with such registration or account creation or your geolocation information based on the use of your Nextivity Product to such Operator or its affiliates or the distributors or resellers through which you purchased a Nextivity Product (collectively, “Distributors”). For example, we may disclose your name, physical address, email address, phone number, fax number, geolocation of your Nextivity Product, and/or Nextivity Product device ID to such Operators. Also, if you purchased your Nextivity Product through an authorized Nextivity distributor (“Distributor”), then we may also share the foregoing information with such Distributor. We have no control over the policies and practices of Operators or Distributors as to privacy, their use or disclosure of your personal information, or anything else. So if you choose to register your Nextivity Product with an Operator or purchase your Nextivity Product through a Distributor, please review all of that Operator’s and/or Distributor’s relevant policies on privacy. For your information, and without limiting what an Operator or Distributor may do with your personal information, please recognize that Operators and Distributors may be required to disclose your personal information in accordance with applicable law. By submitting personal information to us in connection with the registration of a Nextivity Product or by creating an account on WavePortal, to the fullest extent permitted by applicable laws, you agree to hold Nextivity harmless against any disclosure, use, or security of such personal information by an Operator, Distributor or their agents.
We may anonymize your personal information so that you are not individually identified, and provide that information to our partners or other third parties. We may also use your personal information on an aggregated basis to improve our products, services, and offerings thereof. However, we never disclose aggregate information to a partner or third party in a manner that would identify you personally, as an individual.
We are based in the United States, which is where we process and store the information we collect from you. By providing your personal information to us in connection with the Services, you consent to the transfer to and the processing of such information in the United States. We will use the information you provide to monitor the operating conditions of your Nextivity product. If at any time you wish us to stop monitoring your Nextivity product, please contact us at [email protected]
We employ other companies and people, including cloud computing services, to perform tasks on our behalf (such as customer support and maintenance) and need to share your information with them to provide products or services to you. Unless we tell you differently, our agents do not have any right to use the personal information we share with them beyond what is necessary to assist us.
4. Business Transfers
We may choose to buy or sell assets, and may share and/or transfer customer information in connection with the evaluation of and entry into such transactions. Also, if we (or our assets) are acquired, or if we go out of business, enter bankruptcy, or go through some other change of control, personal information could be one of the assets transferred to or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of us or our assets may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
5. Protection of Nextivity and Others
We reserve the right to access, read, preserve, and disclose any information that we reasonably believe is necessary to comply with law or court order; enforce our agreements; or protect the rights, property, or safety of Nextivity, our employees, our users, or others.
6. Managing personal information
You may contact Nextivity via e-mail at [email protected] and we will attempt to assist you to remove, review, or revise any or all personal information that you have previously provided to us.
This policy does not apply to Operators or other online or offline partner or affiliated sites, products or services that may be electronically linked to our company website(s). Nextivity is not responsible for enforcing the privacy policies of such websites. Further, Nextivity is not responsible for the content included on such websites, including but not limited to special offers, text, copy, photos, images and advertising claims, or names.
Under California Civil Code Sections 1798.83-1798.84, California residents are entitled to ask us for a notice identifying the categories of personal information which we share with our affiliates and/or third parties for marketing purposes, and providing contact information for such affiliates and/or third parties. If you are a California resident and would like a copy of this notice, please submit a written request to: [email protected]
Your browser may offer you a “Do Not Track” option, which allows you to signal to operators of websites and web applications and services (including behavioral advertising services) that you do not wish such operators to track certain of your online activities over time and across different websites. Our Services do not support Do Not Track requests at this time, which means that we collect information about your online activity both while you are using the Services and after you leave our Services.

The Services are hosted and operated in the United States (“U.S.”) through Nextivity and its service providers, and if you do not reside in the U.S., laws in the U.S. may differ from the laws where you reside. By using the Services, you acknowledge that any Personal Data about you, regardless of whether provided by you or obtained from a third party, is being provided to Nextivity in the U.S. and will be hosted on U.S. servers, and you authorize Nextivity to transfer, store and process your information to and in the U.S., and possibly other countries. You hereby consent to the transfer of your data to the U.S. pursuant to the Privacy Shield Principles set forth by the U.S. Department of Commerce regarding the collection and use of Personal Data transferred from the EU and Switzerland to the U.S..

Nextivity’s compliance with the Privacy Shield is subject to the investigatory and enforcement powers of the U.S. Federal Trade Commission.
