What Information We Collect

IDT receives and collects both personal and non-identifying information from you when we provide you with our services, when you install, access or use our websites, apps and services and when you interact or communicate with us.  Personal information means information either on its own or in conjunction with other data that enables a specific person to be identified, but does not include “de-identified,” “anonymous,” or “aggregate” information, which is not otherwise associated with a specific person.  Non-identifying information means information that by itself cannot be used to identify a specific person.

We collect your information in the following ways:

 

Why We collect Your Information and How We Use It

We use all the information we collect and receive to help us operate, provide, improve, understand, customize, support, and market our services.  In addition, we use your information for general, operational and administrative purposes, including maintaining your account, authenticating you and contacting you.  As used in this Privacy Policy, the terms “use,” “using” and “processing” information include using cookies or other similar technologies on a computer/phone/device, subjecting the information to statistical or other analysis and using or handling information in any way, including but not limited to, scanning, collecting, storing, evaluating, aggregating, modifying, deleting, using, combining, disclosing and sharing information among our affiliates both in and outside the United States and to select third parties.

In addition, how we use the information we collect depends on which of our services you use, how you use them, and specific preferences you may have communicated to us.  We list below the specific purposes for which we collect your information.

 

Who We Share Your Information With and Why

We share all the information we collect and receive with our affiliates, both in and outside the United States, and to select third parties, to help us operate, provide, improve, understand, customize, support, and market our services, and for general, operational and administrative purposes, including maintaining your account, authenticating you and contacting you.  When we share information with third-parties, we require them to use your information in accordance with our instructions and terms or with express permission from you.  In addition, you share your information as you use and communicate through our services.

More specifically, we may share your information as detailed below:

 

How we Protect Your Information

IDT has technical, organizational and physical safeguards in place to help protect against unauthorized access to, use or disclosure of the information we collect and store.  Employees are trained on the importance of protecting privacy and on the proper access to, use and disclosure of customer information.  IDT secures information on computer servers in a controlled, secure environment, protected from unauthorized access, use or disclosure.  We use Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encrypted protection to protect the personal information transmitted to our websites.  Our websites and apps are PCI compliant in connection with your credit card information.  Although we work hard to protect your information that we collect and store, no program is 100% secure and we cannot guarantee that our safeguards will prevent every unauthorized attempt to access, use or disclose that information.  Therefore, you acknowledge the risk that third parties may gain unauthorized access to your information.  Keep your account password secret and please let us know immediately if you think your password was compromised.  Remember, you are responsible for any activity under your account using your account password or other credentials.  IDT maintains security and incident response plans to handle incidents involving unauthorized access to information we collect or store.  If you become aware of a security issue, please contact us.

 

Where we Store Your Information

Personal information held by IDT is stored on and processed on computers situated in the United States and in the EEA.  We and/or our service providers also process data in some other countries for customer care, account management and service provisioning.

If you are an EEA resident, your personal data held by IDT may be transferred to, and stored at, destinations outside the EEA that may not be subject to equivalent data protection laws, including the United States.  When you sign up for service with IDT or inquire about our services, we transfer your information to the United States and other countries as necessary to perform our agreement with you or to respond to an inquiry you make.  It may also be processed by staff situated outside the EEA who work for us or for one of our suppliers.

Accordingly, by using our services, you authorize the transfer of your information to the United States, where we are based, and to other locations where we and/or our service providers operate, and to its (and their) storage and use as specified in this Privacy Policy and any applicable terms of service or other agreement between you and IDT.  In some cases, IDT may seek specific consent for the use or transfer of your information overseas at the time of collection.  If you do not consent, we may be unable to provide you with the services you requested.  The United States and other countries where we operate may not have protections for personal information equivalent to those in your home country.

Where your information is transferred outside the EEA, we will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your data is subject to appropriate safeguards, such as relying on a recognized legal adequacy mechanism, and that it is treated securely and in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

To facilitate our global operations, we transfer information among our corporate affiliates in countries whose privacy and data protection laws may not be as robust as the laws of the countries where our customers and users are based.  For data transfers from the EEA to the United States and other countries we make use of legally recognized data transfer mechanisms, which may include standard contractual clauses approved by the European Commission, reliance on the European Commission’s adequacy decisions about certain countries, privacy shield frameworks, binding corporate rules for transfers to data processors, or other appropriate legal mechanisms to safeguard the transfer.

Some of the third parties described in this Privacy Policy, which provide services to us under contract, are based in other countries that may not have equivalent privacy and data protection laws to the country in which you reside.  When we share information of users in the EEA with such third parties, we shall make use of legally-recognized data transfer mechanisms, which may include privacy shield frameworks, the European Commission’s standard contractual clauses, binding corporate rules for transfers to data processors, or other appropriate legal mechanisms to safeguard the transfer.

How Long We Store Your Information

We store your information until it is no longer necessary to provide the services or otherwise relevant for the purposes for which it was collected.  This time period may vary depending on the type of information and the services used, as detailed below, and applicable law, which may require us to maintain information for a set amount of time.  After such time, we will either delete or anonymize your information or, if this is not possible (for example, because the information has been stored in backup archives), then we will securely store your information and isolate it from any further use until deletion is possible.  We may also retain aggregate information beyond this time for research purposes and to help us develop and improve our services.  You cannot be identified from anonymized information retained or used for these purposes.

 

How To Access and Control Your Information

Your choices.  You have choices about how we use and share your information and there may be additional protections that apply with regard to certain information we collect depending on where you reside.

Access to your account information.  Consistent with applicable laws and data security requirements, we will reasonably honor written requests from you to access or amend your account information, such as name, address, and billing information.  You are responsible for ensuring that the information on file with IDT is current and accurate.  You may access and update your account information by logging into your account or contacting us as described in this Privacy Policy.  Where permitted by law, we may charge a reasonable fee to process requests for access to data and may limit the number of requests per year.  Your right to amend your information is subject to our records retention policies.  To request deletion of your IDT account, please contact us as described in this Privacy Policy.  You should know that deletion of your IDT account will result in you permanently losing access to your account and all customer data to which you previously had access through your account.  Please note that certain data associated with that account may nonetheless remain on IDT’s servers in an aggregated or anonymized form that does not specifically identify you.  Similarly, data associated with your account that we are required by law to maintain will also not be deleted.

Opt out of communications.  You may opt out of receiving promotional communications from us by using some or all of the following methods: the unsubscribe link within each e-mail, replying STOP to a text message, updating your e-mail preferences within your service account settings menu, or by contacting us as provided below to have your contact information removed from our promotional list or registration database.  Even after you opt out from receiving promotional messages from us, you will continue to receive transactional and informational messages from us regarding our services. Depending on your type of account with IDT, you may be able to opt out of some notification messages in your account settings.

Customer Proprietary Network Information (CPNI).  For residents of the United States, CPNI is information made available to us solely by virtue of our relationship with you that relates to the type, quantity, destination, technical configuration, location, and amount of use of the telecommunications and interconnected VoIP services you purchase from us, as well as related billing information.  You have a right, and we have a duty, under U.S. federal law to protect the confidentiality of your CPNI.  We use and share your CPNI within the IDT family of Companies and with/to their agents, contractors and partners for marketing purposes, including to offer you services that are different from the services you currently purchase from us.  If you don’t want your CPNI used for the marketing purposes described above, please contact us as described in this Privacy Policy.  Unless you notify us, we may use your CPNI as described above and your choice will remain valid until you notify us that you wish to change your selection.  Your decision about use of your CPNI will not affect the provision of any services you currently have with us.  Note:  this CPNI notice may not apply to residents of certain states, including Arizona.

Telemarketing.  U.S. federal “Do Not Call” laws allow U.S. residents you to place your phone numbers on the National Do Not Call Registry to prevent telemarketing calls to those numbers.  To add your numbers to this list, please call 1-888-382-1222, or visit www.donotcall.gov.  Most telemarketing laws allow companies to contact their own customers without consulting the Federal or State Do Not Call lists.  If you would like to be removed from IDT’s telemarketing list, please contact us as described in this Privacy Policy.  Please allow 30 days for your telephone number to be removed from any sales programs that are currently underway.  Please note that we may still call you regarding your services and account even if you remove your number from our telemarketing list.

Email, Text Messages and Push Notifications.  Marketing emails you receive from us will include an unsubscribe feature usually found at the bottom of the email that you may use to opt out of receiving future marketing emails.  Marketing text and SMS messages from us also contain an opt-out feature that you can use to prevent future marketing text and SMS messages from us.  You may refuse to consent to receive calls and texts from IDT and its affiliates that require your consent, including autodialed, pre-recorded or artificial voice telemarketing calls.  You may also withdraw your previously given consent to receive such calls and texts.  You can opt out of receiving push notifications from us via our apps by going to your device “Settings” and clicking on “Notifications,” and then changing those settings for the applicable app.  Please note that you cannot withdraw your consent to receive certain in-app messages from IDT.  Your ability to manage some of our services could be limited if you withdraw your consent to receive text and SMS messages.  IDT does not recommend using those services without authorization to receive such messages.

Online Information.  You have choices about whether certain information collected on our websites and apps is used to customize advertising based on predictions generated from your visits over time and across different websites and apps.  Similarly, many mobile devices offer controls you can set to limit the advertising use of information collected across mobile apps on your device.  Please note that many opt outs use browser cookies or device controls and are specific to the device and browser you are using. 

California, USA Consumers.  If you are a resident of the State of California, please review Appendix A to this Privacy Policy which sets forth additional provisions that apply to you.

Your rights as an EEA resident. If you are from the EEA, you may have broader or additional rights, including:

Where the processing of your personal data by us is based on consent, you have the right to withdraw that consent without detriment at any time by contacting us.  If you do not want your personal data used by IDT for any direct marketing purposes, or shared with third parties for their own marketing use, then you may opt out of such use or sharing by contacting us, even if you have previously consented to such use.

If you have any concerns or complaints regarding the treatment of your personal information by us, or you believe we have breached any privacy law in relation to your personal information, please contact us.  We will treat any concerns or complaints confidentially.  We will promptly investigate any concern or complaint that you raise with us.

You can exercise the rights listed above at any time by contacting us and if you feel that your request or concern has not been satisfactorily resolved, or if our response was not provided within a reasonable time, you may approach your local data protection authority (links here for residents of the EEA or Australia).  The Information Commissioner is the supervisory authority in the United Kingdom and can provide further information about your rights and our obligations in relation to your personal data, as well as deal with any complaints that you have about our processing of your personal data.

 

Other Important Information

Information from children.  IDT does not sell products or services for purchase by children and we do not knowingly solicit or collect personal data from children under the age of sixteen without obtaining verifiable parental consent.  If you believe that a minor has disclosed personal data to IDT, please contact us.  If you allow a child to use your device or our services, you should be aware that their information could be collected as described in this Privacy Policy.  We encourage parents to be involved in the online activities of their children to ensure that no information is collected from a child without parental permission.

Cookies and Tracking.  See Appendix B to this Privacy Policy.

Use of Third Party Advertising.  The majority of the advertisements you see on IDT websites are displayed by IDT.  In addition, IDT also allows third-party advertisers to display advertisements while you are viewing content on IDT websites.  These advertisements are selected based on what we believe will be of most interest to you.

Electronic Communications.  Unless otherwise required by applicable law, you authorize IDT to send or provide the following categories of information (“Communications”) by electronic means and not in paper format:  (a) any customer agreement you have with IDT and any amendments, modifications or supplements to it; (b) your purchase and use records regarding service transactions; (c) any initial, periodic or other disclosures or notices provided in connection with the services, including without limitation those required by U.S. federal, state, international or other applicable law; (d) any customer service communications, including without limitation, communications with respect to claims of error or unauthorized use of the services; and (e) any other communication related to the services, a transaction or IDT.  Electronic means may include email, SMS/MMS, App to App, text, push notification through our apps, website chat with customer service, or posting in our applicable apps or on our applicable website.  Message and data rates may apply when you receive SMS/MMS, text or push notification messages on your mobile phone.  You may withdraw your consent to receive all Communications electronically (except for app to app messages from IDT) at any time.  In order to withdraw your consent, you must contact us.  In order to access and retain Communications, you must have:  (i) an Internet browser that supports 128-bit encryption, (ii) a mobile number and the capability to receive messages from or on behalf of IDT, and (iii) a device and data or Internet connection capable of supporting the foregoing.

Consent to Receive Messages.  Subject to your ability to opt-out, by using any of our services, you consent to receive text messages, phone calls, faxes, postal mail, push notifications through our apps, and app to app messages from IDT and its affiliates regarding account management activities and special offers.  This consent is specific to the phone number(s) you provide to us to use the services and open accounts.  Where local law permits, you consent to receive phone calls from IDT even if your phone number is listed on “do not call” registries.  Where local law permits, an auto-dialer and/or artificial or prerecorded message may be used to make calls or send text messages to you.  Message and data rates may apply when you receive SMS/MMS, text or push notification messages on your mobile phone.  You may refuse to consent to receive calls and texts from IDT and its affiliates that require your consent, including autodialed, pre-recorded or artificial voice telemarketing calls.  You may also withdraw your previously given consent to receive such calls and texts.  Your ability to manage and use certain features of the services could be limited if you refuse or withdraw your consent to receive these messages.  You are not required to agree to promotional communications in order to purchase goods or services from us.

Changes to this policy.  In the event we make changes to this Privacy Policy, we’ll let you know by posting an updated policy on our website at www.idt.net.

  1. Your Rights. As a California resident you have certain additional rights regarding your personal information under the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (“CCPA”). 

(i)         Right to Know Personal Information Collected – you have the right to request the following from IDT:  categories of personal information collected; categories of sources of personal information; business or commercial purpose for collecting or selling your personal information; categories of third parties with whom we share your personal information; and the specific pieces of personal information that we have collected about you.

(ii)        Right to Know Personal Information Sold or Disclosed – you have the right to request the following from IDT:  categories of personal information collected; categories of personal information sold by IDT; categories of third parties to whom IDT has sold your personal information; and categories of personal information IDT has disclosed for a business purpose.

(iii)       Right of No Discrimination - IDT does not discriminate against any California consumer who exercises any of the consumer’s rights under the CCPA.  Pursuant to the CCPA, IDT is permitted to charge a consumer a different price or rate and/or provide a different level of service to the consumer if that difference is reasonably related to the value provided to the consumer by the consumer’s data.

(iv)       Right of Deletion/Erasure – you have the right to request that IDT delete any personal information that it has collected about you.  There are exceptions to this right and IDT does not have to delete your personal information including if necessary to complete a transaction, to provide you with services, to detect fraud, to comply with our legal obligations, and to use internally in a lawful manner compatible with the context in which the personal information was given.  In addition, if your personal information is deleted you may not be able to purchase or use our products and services.

(v)        Right to Not Sell Personal Information – IDT may sell certain portions of your personal information to third parties and you have the right to opt out of such selling.  To exercise your right to opt out of the sale of your personal information please go to https://www.idt.net/ccpa-do-not-sell and complete the form.  IDT does not intentionally collect the personal information of a consumer under the age of 16.  IDT does not intentionally sell the personal information of a consumer under the age of 16 unless the consumer (if age 13-16) or the consumer’s parent (for consumers under 13) affirmatively authorizes sale. 

  1. How to Exercise Your Rights. To exercise your rights to know personal information collected, sold or disclosed, or to exercise your right to delete your personal information, please go to https://www.idt.net/ccpa-request and complete the form.  To exercise your right to opt out of the sale of your personal information please go to https://www.idt.net/ccpa-do-not-sell and complete the form.  In addition, you can exercise your rights by calling the following toll-free number:  888-412-0477. 
  2. Verification of Consumer Requests. In order to comply with a consumer request, IDT must reasonably verify the requestor.  A record of each request is made as soon as it is received by our data protection team.  IDT will use all reasonable measures to verify the identity of the individual making the request.  We will utilize the requested data to ensure that we can verify the requestor’s identity and where we are unable to do so, we may contact you for further information, or ask you to provide evidence of your identity prior to responding to your request.  This is to protect your data and rights.  If a third party, relative or representative is requesting the data on your behalf, we will verify their authority to act for you and may contact you and them to confirm you and their identity and gain your authorization prior to responding to the request.
  3. Responding to Consumer Requests. IDT will attempt to confirm receipt of each request by contacting the requestor either at the email or telephone number submitted, through the consumer’s account or by other electronic means.  IDT will attempt to verify each request and if it is able to verify a request will provide a response within 45 days of the receipt of the request, which time period may be extended by IDT for an additional 45 days.  If a delay is necessary, IDT will contact the requestor within the original 45 day period and provide the reasons for the delay.  If a request is particularly complex, IDT may take an additional 90 days to respond.  IDT may charge a fee or refuse to act on any request that is manifestly unfounded or excessive.  All IDT responses shall be in writing and cover the previous 12 month period.  Where possible the response shall be sent through the consumer’s account.  Otherwise, the response shall be sent by mail or electronically.  IDT is not obligated to provide a response to a consumer more than two times in any 12 month period.  The CCPA contains certain exemptions and exceptions from the right of deletion and/or the provision of personal information.  If one or more of those exemptions or exceptions applies to your request, then we may not be able to act upon your request.  Where possible we will inform you of the reasons for not acting upon your request.
  4. For More Info. For more information on your rights and our obligations under the CCPA please send an email to ccpa@idt.net.  For California residents with a disability please send an email to ccpa@idt.net for information on how to access this Privacy Policy in another format.
