WHAT IS PERSONAL INFORMATION?
WHAT PERSONAL INFORMATION DO WE COLLECT?
We collect information from you in various ways when you visit the Services. For example, we collect information you voluntarily provide to us, such as when you use the Services, send us an email or provide or request information. Such information may include personal information, such as your name or email address. Personal and demographic information may also be collected if you provide such information in connection with leaving comments or sending an email to us.
When you establish an account for Services, we collect information such as your name, address, and telephone number, as well as information used for credit checks, billing, and payment, and any other information we may need to establish and service your account. When you first order your Services, and when you request any subsequent changes or updates to your Services, CLNW may collect information about the service options that you have chosen. CLNW may also collect your personal information when you contact us: for example, if you ask for support or maintenance, have questions about your bill, send us e-mails, respond to our surveys or e-mails, engage in chat sessions with us, register for information, contact us regarding your individual access requests, or participate in promotions or contests.
Cookies are small data files stored on your hard drive to simplify and improve your experience. Cookies may be used to remember some of your personalization preferences, including your username and password (if you choose to store them). We also use information obtained from cookies to improve the Sites, and to make decisions concerning advertising, product offerings and services. Web beacons are small, invisible graphic images that may be used on the Site or in emails relating to the Site to collect certain information and monitor user activity on the Site, such as to count visits, understand usage effectiveness and to tell if an email has been opened and acted upon.
Third-party advertisers and other organizations may use their own cookies and similar technologies to collect information about your activities on our digital properties and/or the advertisements you have clicked on. This information may be used by them to serve advertisements that they believe are most likely to be of interest to you based on content you have viewed. Third-party advertisers may also use this information to measure the effectiveness of their advertisements. If you would prefer to not receive personalized ads based on your browser or device usage, you may generally express your opt-out preference to no longer receive tailored advertisements. Please note that you will continue to see advertisements, but they will no longer be tailored to your interests.
To opt-out of interest-based advertising by participating companies in the following consumer choice mechanisms, please visit:
- Digital Advertising Alliance (DAA)’s self-regulatory opt-out page and mobile application-based “AppChoices” download page
- European Interactive Digital Advertising Alliance (EDAA)’s consumer opt-out page
- Network Advertising Initiative (NAI)’s self-regulatory opt-out page
In the mobile environment, most mobile operating systems offer device-based opt-out choices that are transmitted to companies providing interest-based advertising. To set an opt-out preference for a mobile device identifier (such as Apple’s IDFA or Android’s GAID), visit the device manufacturer’s current choice instructions pages, or read more about sending signals to limit ad tracking for your operating system here.
Please note that these settings must be performed on each device (including each web browser on each device) for which you wish to opt-out, and if you clear your cookies or if you use a different browser or device, you will need to renew your opt-out preferences.

WITH WHOM DO WE SHARE PERSONAL INFORMATION WITH?
We share your information with third parties such as vendors, consultants, and other service providers who provide services on our behalf or to help with our business activities. Typically, we make these disclosures only when the disclosure is necessary to provide your Services or to conduct a legitimate business activity related to your Services.
Some business customers have purchased Services through our third-party agents or master agents. These agents collect all required customer information necessary to order your Services. They have an ongoing contractual relationship with us and the customers who purchase our Services through their agency. These agents retain access to customer information located on our systems for business purposes related to providing service to the end customer. The privacy policies of these agents or master agents will govern their use of customer information.
Software and Configuration
By collecting and maintaining your information in support software tools, we may use the information you provide to assist you with technical support. The information collected in the support software is available only to authorized personnel for maintaining and supporting your use of our Services. We may also provide customer contact and support pages that you can use to communicate with us about technical support. We use the information provided by you on these pages to support your use of our Services.
We may also provide software directly or through third parties for your use in connection with our Services. These programs may be subject to their own terms of service and other policies. We recommend that you carefully read such third-party terms and policies to understand how they may use your personal information.
In certain cases, we may configure your Service or Service-related equipment to resolve a technical support issue or otherwise render or deliver your Service. We may perform these configurations at your request, and may do so at your location remotely.
Required by Law
We may share aggregated data that no longer identifies individual users and other de-identified information for regulatory compliance, market analysis, and other business purposes.
You may sign-up to receive emails, newsletters or other communications from us. If you would like to discontinue receiving this content, you may update your marketing preferences by using the “Update Profile” link found in emails we send to you.

LINKS TO OTHER WEBSITES, SOCIAL MEDIA FEATURES
Our Sites and Services include social media features, such as Facebook “Like” button and Twitter re-tweets, as well as share buttons or interactive mini-programs. These features collect the user’s IP address, the pages visited on the site or service, and set cookies to enable the features to function properly. Social media features are either hosted by a third party or hosted directly on the Website. Interactions with these features are governed by the privacy notices of the social media companies that provide them.
We utilize several encryption methods to ensure that the data you submit on any of the CLNW sites is secure. Through this “secure session,” information that you input into our online order form will be sent and will arrive privately and unaltered at our server. This security prohibits access to your information by other companies and Internet users.
ACCESS TO INFORMATION
We will correct our records on a going-forward basis when the personal information we have collected about you is inaccurate. Please note we have no control over information appearing in the directory lists or directory assistance services of directory publishers or directory assistance providers not affiliated with CLNW.
Please note that for personal information about you that we have obtained or received for processing on behalf of our Client (controllers who determined the means and purposes of processing) all such requests should be made to Client directly. We will honor and support any instructions they provide us with respect to your personal information.
RETENTION OF INFORMATION
We maintain your personal information in our regular business records while you are a customer of your Services. We may also maintain this information for a period of time after you are no longer a customer if the information is necessary for the purposes for which it was collected or to satisfy our legal requirements and/or obligations. These purposes typically include business, legal, or tax purposes. If there are no pending requests, orders, or court orders for access to this personal information, we may destroy the information once it becomes unnecessary to those purposes for which it was collected.
