We Collect and How We Use It
When you place an
order for products or services we collect certain types of
personally identifiable information required to fulfill those
products or services, including (1) contact information, such as
name, address, e-mail address, and telephone number; (2) payment
information, such as credit card number, or (3) ID verification
information, such as credit card number, date of birth, Social
Security Number, or Driver's License Number, as may be required by a
wireless carrier if you are requesting a new account.
We use this
information to process requests for products and services. For those
customers applying for new wireless service activation, this
includes performing a standard industry credit check by inputting
your data into the wireless carrier's system. Once the carrier runs
the check, it informs us of an applicant's approval status so that
we can either process the order or notify those applicants who have
not been approved of their status. Aside from approval status
information, we do not have access to an applicant's credit-history
We also use
collected information to communicate with you, such as to notify you
about updates to products, to send you order confirmations, or to
provide you with important product warranty or safety information.

WireOffers.com. You can easily opt out of this newsletter by

information you provide to respond to your inquiries about our
offerings, and to offer you, by means of e-mail or through our
newsletter, additional products, programs or services that we
believe may be of interest to you.
Information from IP

traffic trends, troubleshooting, etc. This information is used only
in the aggregate form. IP addresses are not linked to any personally
identifiable information, meaning the user session is tracked, but
the user is anonymous.
