We collect your personal data when you provide it to us and when you use the application, service or portal. Your personal data includes your name, work address, wireline and/or mobile telephone number, email address, IP address, device identifying information and employer’s name accessed through the application, service or portal.

    4. Verizon’s reasons for processing your personal data: We process your personal data as set forth in the Verizon Privacy Policy and to: (1) identify and authenticate users of the application, service or portal; (2) operate; provide customer and supplier support and account management; and improve the application, service or portal; (3) communicate with you with respect to the operation of the application, service or portal; or (4) when necessary, exercise our legal rights. Under the local laws in some countries, we must have a legal basis to process your personal data. In most cases, we will process your personal data for our legitimate business interests (for example, to enable us to understand how our services are used and to derive knowledge that enables us to develop new services), when it is necessary for purposes of a contract, or when it is necessary for us to do so to meet our legal obligations. We have put in place safeguards to ensure that your privacy is protected and that our legitimate interests do not override your interests or fundamental rights and freedoms. 
    5. International transfer of your personal data: Your personal data will, in many instances, be processed outside of the EEA (European Economic Area) by Verizon or the approved third-party suppliers, operating in: (1) IT hardware and software services; (2) cloud services; (3) advertising and marketing; (4) business services and human capital management; and (5) administration and field services. Verizon has safeguards in place in accordance with applicable law to ensure that your personal data will, at all times and in all locations, be adequately protected to the standards required by applicable EEA Data Protection laws. International data transfers among the Verizon family of companies are consistent with the Verizon Binding Corporate Rules.
    6. When we share your personal data: We may share your personal data among the Verizon family of companies, with our approved third-party suppliers (as described above) and as set forth in the Verizon Privacy Policy.
    7. Personal data retention period: We will keep your personal data for as long as we have a relationship with you. Once our relationship with you has come to an end, we will retain your personal data for a period of time that enables us to: (1) maintain business records for analysis and/or audit purposes; (2) comply with record retention requirements under the law; (3) defend or bring any existing or potential legal claims; and (4) deal with any complaints regarding the services. We will delete your personal data when it is no longer required for these purposes. If there is any personal data that we are unable, for technical reasons, to delete entirely from our systems, we will put in place appropriate measures to prevent any further processing or use of that data.  Please access Verizon Privacy Policy if you would like additional information about data retention.
