Information we collect about you
We currently collect and process the following information about you:
- The contact information you provide such as your name, address, mobile number and email address;
- Your account information, such as the plans and/or subscriptions you have, or your account identifier;
- Your billing information, place of residence and any other information you provide for the provision of payment services, administration and billing processes;
- Details about your device(s), for example, the unique device ID, MSISDN, IP address, the device model, browser type, device settings and operating system; and
- Information about your interaction with our app including but not limited to, traffic data, communication data, the resources that you access within the app and the services, products or features you use the most.
- Location information from your device, which is collected further to your consent. This includes precise geolocation data from or about your device expressed by latitude-longitude coordinates obtained through GPS tools, WiFi data, cell tower triangulation and other location-tracking techniques. This location data may be collected whether the app is in use or inactive.
Our app may contain links to other websites, which are owned and managed by third parties. It is your responsibility when visiting these links to understand how those third parties will use your data by reviewing their privacy & cookie notices. Once you exit the application or our website, we do not have control over the information that is submitted or collected by those third parties and accept no responsibility for these third-party websites.
How we get that information and why we have it
Most of the information that we process is provided to us by you:
- When you register, browse and use the services available on our app;
- When you get in touch with us or respond to communications from us; or
- Directly from our affiliates with your consent.
Other data is collected through the use of various technologies:
- We collect information about your interaction with our app, for example, through Google Analytics, cookies and software development kits (SDKs ). For more detailed information on the cookies we collect and how we use the information collected, please review the cookie notice.
- We take repeated measurements from your device from time to time including location data, network type, network operator, cellular and Wi-Fi signal strength and quality, and the identifiers of connected cell towers and Wi-Fi routers (including both BSSID and SSID).
- We measure how data is flowing, both passively (by monitoring how fast it moves through other apps), and actively (by running a test that downloads or uploads data). We do not monitor the content of your data usage. This aids us in measuring the experience you have of wireless networks.
- We measure internal device conditions – such as battery temperature and voltage. This aids us in understanding how instantaneous device conditions affect the experience of mobile networks.
- We collect data on your device hardware such as the model, manufacturer, and manufacturers and models of sub-components (such as the cellular radio) and their capabilities, in order to assess and understand differences between devices.
- We collect information on the mobile platform version to understand differences caused by software and to understand how device properties affect the experience of mobile networks.
- When you first use the app a random identification code is generated by our software and allocated to your mobile device and used to identify your device whenever we take measurements. This is collected with other data such as related IP addresses, the device MAC number and/or the Android serial number. We generally pseudonymise and collect this data for aggregate analytics and statistical purposes, such as understanding how much data a device contributes.
Generally, we will use the information that we have collected to:
1. verify or authenticate your identity;
2. validate your subscription;
3. maintain and provide the services you have requested through our app;
4. assist with service-related issues, account management, customer care and technical support;
5. gather data on and improve the performance of the service, product and service development, and customer care;
6. carry out marketing analysis to tailor the services to your preferences – sending you relevant information and promotions;
7. market our services; and
8. share with our third-party advertising partners to personalize & improve your online experience;
9. carry out statistical analysis such as analyzing the performance of our website and app and to understand how visitors use them.
10. comprehensively assess all aspects of the customer experience, from hardware elements to software and network elements, so that we can continue to develop and improve our performance and your experience.
Legal basis for using your information
We will only use your personal data where we have a legal ground to do so. In every case, the legal ground will be one of the following:
