Privacy Policy for AT&T Websites

Aviso de Privacidade do RGPD/LGPD

Effective July 9, 2020

This Privacy Policy applies to the websites for AT&T Inc. and information collected through those websites.  AT&T products and services are provided or offered by subsidiaries and affiliates of AT&T Inc. under the AT&T brand or other brands and not by AT&T Inc.  Those subsidiaries and affiliates have their own privacy policies that apply to their products, services, and websites.  This Privacy Policy applies only to the websites for AT&T Inc. and the website for the AT&T Discovery District (https://discoverydistrict.att.com/) (collectively, “these websites”). By using these websites, you accept and agree to the terms of this Privacy Policy (“Policy”). If you do not agree to this Policy, please do not use these websites.

 

Information we collect through these websites

We automatically collect information about how you use these websites and what device or devices you use to do so through the use of cookies, web beacons, and other technologies.  For example, these websites automatically record website usage information including your IP address, browser type, operating system, and device type used to access the website.  Subject to the settings on your device or web browser, we may also collect limited information about your location. This information does not identify you personally, and we do not use this information to track or record information about individuals through these websites.

 

How we use the information we collect

We use the data collected through these websites for a variety of purposes including to better understand how people use each website, to prevent fraud, and to improve the effectiveness, security and integrity of the website. Information about your location may be used to help customize the content you see. We may also use the data to provide you information about AT&T and its products and services and offers, to protect and enforce our agreements and property rights, to comply with court orders, legal processes or respond to regulatory or other similar requests.

 

We share the information with

  • Our subsidiaries and affiliates.
  • Vendors and agents performing or providing goods and services on our behalf.
  • Third parties but only in aggregate form or as may be required by law.

 

Data storage and retention

Data we collect through the AT&T Inc. websites may be processed and stored in the United States, or in other countries where we or our affiliates or service providers process data. We take steps to ensure that data is processed according to this Policy and to the requirements of applicable law of your country and of the additional countries where the data is subsequently processed.

When we transfer personal data from the European Economic Area to other countries, we use appropriate legal mechanisms to help ensure all applicable laws, rights and regulations continue to protect your data.

We keep any information we collect through these websites as long as we need it for business, tax, or legal purposes. After that, we destroy it by making it unreadable or indecipherable.

 

Security of your data

We’ve established electronic and administrative safeguards designed to make the information we collect from these websites secure. However, no transmission or electronic storage of information is guaranteed to be secure. We therefore urge you to always use caution when transmitting information over the Internet.

 

Links to other websites

These websites contain links to other websites and servers that are not AT&T Inc. websites. This Policy does not apply to the privacy practices or the content of such linked sites. When you link to another site, you are subject to the privacy policy of the new site.

 

Changes in ownership or to the Policy

Information collected through these websites may be shared and transferred as part of any merger, acquisition, sale of company assets, or transition of service to another provider. This also applies in the unlikely event of an insolvency, bankruptcy, or receivership in which customer and user records would be transferred to another entity as a result of such a proceeding.

We may update this Policy as necessary to reflect changes we make and to satisfy legal requirements. Updates to this Policy will be posted to these websites.  We’ll post a prominent notice of material changes on these websites.

California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA)

CCPA Personal Information (CCPA PI) is defined by California law as information that identifies, relates to, describes, is capable of being associated with, or could reasonably be linked, directly or indirectly, with California consumers or households.

 
THE INFORMATION WE COLLECT AND SHARE

We want to provide you with the information about how to exercise rights involving CCPA PI. Here is information about the CCPA PI we have collected from and shared about consumers over the past year.

 

Information We Collected From Consumers

The CCPA identifies a number of categories of CCPA PI. In the year before the date this policy was issued, we may have collected these categories of CCPA PI:

  • Unique and online identifiers – IP address, device IDs, or other similar identifiers
  • Internet, gaming or other electronic network activity information – such as browsing history, search history and information regarding an individual’s interaction with an internet website, application, or advertisement
  • Location Information
  • In Game or Online Viewing Activities (e.g., videos viewed, pages viewed)

We collected the above categories of CCPA PI for the following purposes:

  • Fraud and crime prevention
  • Debugging errors in systems
  • Marketing and advertising

  • Developing, maintaining, provisioning or upgrading networks, services or devices.

We may have collected the above categories of CCPA PI listed from the following sources:

Verification of Identity – Access or Deletion Requests

 

Former Accountholders, Non-Accountholders (without Password Protected Account). If you do not have a password protected account, we will ask to verify your identity using our mobile verification process. This process captures an image of your identity document, such as your driver’s license, and compares it to a self-photo you submit. We will only use this information to verify your identity. We will delete it after the time expires allowed by the CCPA to process and respond to your request.

If we cannot verify your identity, we will not be able to respond to your request. We will notify you to explain.

 

Authorized Agents

You may designate an authorized agent to submit requests on your behalf. Your agent will need a valid power of attorney or written permission signed by you. If the agent relies on written permission, we’ll need to verify the agent’s identity. We may also contact you directly to confirm the permission. Your authorized agent can submit your requests by calling us at 866-385-3193.

 

WE DON’T MIND IF YOU EXERCISE YOUR DATA RIGHTS

We are committed to providing you control over your CCPA PI. If you exercise any of these rights explained in this section of the Privacy Policy, we will not disadvantage you. You will not be denied or charged different prices or rates for goods or services or provided a different level or quality of goods or services.

 

CONSUMERS UNDER 16 YEARS OLD

As of the effective date of this policy, we do not have actual knowledge that we sell CCPA PI of consumers under 16 years of age. If we collect CCPA PI that we know is from a child under 16 years old in the future, we will not sell that information unless we receive affirmative permission to do so. If a child is between 13 and 16 years of age, the child may provide that permission.
