interactions with us, we may ask you for certain personal information, such as your name, birthdate,
address, e-mail address, telephone number, company name, job title, or payment information. When you
request support from us, we may also collect information from you such as contact information,
documentation, screenshots, or other information you or we may believe is helpful to solving the issue.
When you speak with our customer service or sales representative on the phone, your calls may be
recorded and/or monitored for quality assurance and training purposes. In certain circumstances, we may
collect your Social Security number from you for a limited purpose, such as for tax reporting relating
to a payment for a customer referral or to facilitate an international money transfer.
- Information we collect automatically when you visit our websites. We and our
third-party partners, such as our advertising and analytics partners, collect information about your
visits to our websites and your interactions with our ads or content, together with information such as
your IP address, cookies, and other tracking technologies (e.g., web beacons, device identifiers, and
pixels). For more information, please see our Cookies and Tracking Notice, which includes information on
how to control or opt out of these cookies and tracking technologies.
- Information we get from third parties. Third party sources of information include:
- Third party services and social media. If you create an account or access our
services through your account with a third-party service, such as Facebook, Google, LinkedIn,
GitHub or Twitter, or use a social media feature through our services, certain personal data
from those third-party social media services may be shared with us, such as your interests,
“likes,” and friends list. We may use this information, for example, to personalize
your Vonage experiences and marketing communications, to enhance our services, and to better
serve you. You can control this data sharing via options in your social media accounts. We may
also collect information from third party services that are integrated with our services, such
as third-party CRMs or other applications that you authorize our services to connect with.
- Credit agencies. We may obtain your credit information from third party
reporting agencies in order to control our own credit risk in onboarding new customers.
- Demographic, lead, and interest data. We may obtain information from outside
companies such as those that collect customer information including demographic and interest
data. Examples of this information include your employment status, your job title with your
current employer, and your business contact information. We use this data and combine it with
other information we have about you to help us predict your preferences and to direct marketing
offers that might be more relevant to you. We also obtain where permitted by law contact
information and other marketing lead information from third parties, website
“refer-a-friend” options or social media platforms and may combine it with
information we have to contact you or direct Vonage marketing offers to you.
- Information about our customers’ users. Our customers and other third
parties may also provide us with personal information about our customers’ users and
others. For example, we may receive personal information and other information from our
customers, message senders, mobile network operators, databases with information relevant to
mobile telephone numbers submitted to our services, and other third parties. This information
may include, without limitation, telephone numbers, telephone numbers’ validity, type
(e.g., mobile, landline, etc.), corresponding device status (e.g., whether or not it is
currently available for messaging), roaming status, carrier, country of location, and whether or
not the number has been ported and is used to help us provide our services.
- Information collected in connection with your use of services delivered via our
platform. We and our service providers may collect information in connection with your use
of communications services delivered via our platform.
- Communications usage information. This includes information about your
communications delivered via our platform such as the time and duration of usage, source and
destination identifiers, completion status, location, IP address, and amount of usage.
- Communications content. To enable you to send and receive communications via
our platform, we need to be able to handle the content of the messages, calls, and other
communications channels used by you. This also includes, for example, voicemails and call
recordings recorded via our services.
- Device information. Where we have provided end user equipment to you, such as an analog
telephone adapter or a VoIP phone, or you have installed our software on your device, we collect
device-specific information from you. This includes, for example, your hardware model, operating system
version, firmware, browser information, device and network configuration, device identifier, IP address,
device performance, signal strength, call quality, telemetry, and mobile or wireless network
information. We use the device information we collect in order to deliver and improve our services.
- Your contact lists and address book. If you use our mobile apps, we may request
your permission to access and store the contact list or address book maintained on your mobile
phone, tablet, or other broadband-connected device. Your contact list is considered your
personal data. We may use your contact list information to facilitate certain services where
selected by you such as to enable you to make calls easily and to facilitate calls, texts, and
other services. We may also facilitate the delivery of messages to individuals in your contact
list that you wish to invite to download our mobile apps so that you can utilize our services
with these selected individuals, although it is always your choice to send invites to such
individuals. We will not use your contact list information for other purposes without first
notifying you of the proposed use. You do not have to allow us to access your contact list
information, but if you do not, certain features of our mobile apps may not be available to you.
You may at any time opt out from allowing this access via the privacy settings on your device.
- Mobile device camera, microphone and photos. If you use our mobile apps, we may
request your permission to access the camera, microphone, and photos on your mobile device, to
make and receive voice and video calls and messages and to send photos to others. You do not
have to allow us to access these functions of your device, but if you do not, certain features
of our mobile apps may not be available to you. You may at any time opt out from allowing this
access via the privacy settings on your device.
- Your location information. If your mobile device is equipped with GPS or can
connect with wireless access points or hot spots, or if your mobile device is also a phone that
communicates with cell towers or satellites, then your mobile device is able to use these
features to determine its precise geographic location. You may use the mobile app to do a
one-time share of your precise geographic location through a message in a chat session by
pressing the location attachment button within the mobile app (a “Location Share
Event”). We will retain the Location Share Event within your chat session on the mobile
app until you delete the message. Your precise geographic location, including a Location Share
Event, is considered your personal data. To the extent our mobile apps collect precise
geographic location, you may at any time opt out from further allowing us to have access to your
mobile device’s precise location information via the mobile app’s location settings
on your mobile device.
Why we collect your information and how we use it
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.
- To deliver our services. We use your information because it is necessary to perform our
obligations in delivering our services to our customers. This includes delivering your communications to
the intended end user, processing transactions with you (such as billing), authenticating you when you
log into our platform, providing customer support, and operating and maintaining our services. We also
need your information to communicate with you about the services, including registration confirmations,
purchase confirmations, expiration or renewal reminders, responding to your requests, and sending you
notices, updates, security alerts, administrative messages, and other communications necessary to usage
of the services.

services to you, we use your information to engage in important supporting activities such as:

- troubleshooting, quality control, and analytics; and
- monitoring the performance of our systems and platform.
- For research and development. We are constantly looking for ways to improve our
services, to make them more reliable, secure, and useful to you and our users generally. We use data
regarding our users’ communications on our platform to understand how our services are performing
and how they are being used in order to identify areas where we can do better. For instance, we may use
message delivery and call connection information to gauge the effectiveness of our routing to ensure
that your messages are delivered and your calls are connected. We and our service providers may use your
information to assess the level of interest in, and use of, our services, our communications to our
customers, and our other messaging campaigns, both on an individual basis and in the aggregate. We also
use information about your use of our websites to understand how our website visitors are using our
websites. Among other things, this usage information, along with tracking technologies, enables
third-party analytics companies, such as Google Analytics, to generate analytics reports on the usage of
our services. To opt out of your usage information being included in our Google Analytics reports, you
may follow these instructions.

How we protect your information
Vonage has implemented administrative, physical, and technical safeguards to help protect the personal data
that we transmit and maintain. However, no system or service can provide a 100% guarantee of security,
especially a service that relies upon the public internet. 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.
Where we store your information and international transfers
Personal information held by Vonage is stored on and processed on computers situated in the United Kingdom,
the EEA, the United States, and in other jurisdictions. 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 Vonage 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 Vonage or inquire about our services, we transfer your

protections for personal information equivalent to those in your home country.

- International transfers within Vonage and its corporate affiliates. 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. We utilize standard contractual clauses approved by the European Commission and rely on the
European Commission’s adequacy decisions about certain countries, as applicable, for data
transfers from the EEA to the United States and other countries.
- International transfers to third parties. Some of the third parties described in this
have equivalent privacy and data protection laws to the country in which you reside. When we share
information of users in the EEA or Switzerland with such third parties, we shall make use of
legally-recognized data transfer mechanisms, which may include the EU-U.S. and Swiss-U.S. 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.

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. 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

anonymized form that does not specifically identify you. Similarly, data associated with your account

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

that you have about our processing of your personal data.

children and we do not knowingly solicit or collect personal data from children or teenagers under the

Code section 1798.83, requires certain businesses to respond to requests from California consumers

as we do, only to disclose personal information of consumers to third parties for the third parties'
direct marketing purposes if the consumer has opted into such information-sharing.
we’ll let you know by posting a notice on our website at www.vonage.com/privacy-policy and,

We use social media platforms to advertise to you online and to monitor the success of our
advertising (for instance by receiving reports when you click on our ads on Facebook, LinkedIn and
others). We summarize the main advertising and social media partners who drop cookies below:
- LinkedIn Ads: the analysis and conversion tracking technology provided by the social
network LinkedIn is integrated into our website. When you visit our website, a connection is established
between your browser and the LinkedIn server via the remarketing tags. This informs LinkedIn that you
visited our website with your IP address, meaning that LinkedIn can connect your visit to our website
with your user account. We can use this information to display LinkedIn ads. Please be aware that we as
the website provider do not receive any information about the content of the transferred data or how it

- DoubleClick: Google's Doubleclick re-targeting cookie lets us serve personalized
advertising to you when you're browsing other websites and social media platforms. You can control
advertising personalization on Google and partner websites here.
- Facebook Custom Audience: This service from Facebook enables us to display personalized
ads to people on our e-mail lists when they visit Facebook. We provide personal information such as your
e-mail address and phone number in encrypted form to Facebook (so they cannot be seen by anyone at
Facebook) to enable Facebook to determine if you are a registered account holder with Facebook.
- Twitter advertising and remarketing: We advertise on Twitter and our advertising
content will be tailored to your interests on the basis of your browsing behavior and the pages you have
consulted on this and other websites. In order to improve the relevance of our marketing content, the
cookie may therefore transmit such data to Twitter, who will use it to understand your interests better
including to benefit their other advertising customers. If you decide that you do not wish your browsing
data to be collected, you can find comprehensive information on Twitter’s advertising policy and
the steps you can take to protect your privacy here.
