Your choices

The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) gives California consumers the right to say no to the sale of personal information. The term “sale” is broadly defined by the CCPA and includes sharing personal information for monetary or other valuable consideration, but does not cover all sharing of personal information.

We do not sell information that personally identifies our customers or other consumers such as name, telephone number or email address. We may share that type of information with directory publishers and for caller ID purposes, and as otherwise described in our Privacy Policy

We also allow Verizon Media and third-party advertising companies to collect information about your activity on our websites and in our apps, for example through cookies and similar technologies, mobile ad identifiers, pixels, web beacons and social network plugins. These ad entities use information they collect to help us provide more relevant Verizon advertisements and other advertising purposes.  This activity may be considered a sale under the CCPA.

This page gives you information about your choices regarding cookies and other technology, as well as additional privacy choices offered by Verizon. For more details about the information Verizon collects, how that information is used and shared, and your choices, please visit our Privacy Policy.

    Mobile location analytics

    Verizon Business Group provides mobile location analytics reporting services to business customers.

The services collect and de-identify device identifiers from cell devices that come in contact with our business customers’ Wi-Fi network equipment. You can learn more about the service and how to opt out in the Mobile Location Analytics Privacy Notice.

    Device and router location

    The operating system on your mobile device collects device location information and shares it with apps you have permitted to have this information, including some Verizon apps. You can toggle the setting to “off” using the settings menu on your device. You can also use the settings menu to toggle location information to “off” for specific apps, but you may need to enable it for navigation or other location features to work in those apps. You can rename your router to include “_nomap” or “_optout” if you don’t want us to use the location of your Wi-Fi router access point to improve the accuracy of our services or apps. For example, change “Myrouter” to “Myrouter_nomap”.
