Third Party Websites and Applications
What Information Does the RNDA Collect?
The RNDA, acting on behalf of the FCC, and/or third parties acting on behalf of the RNDA, collect PII and other information, both directly, in your interaction with the Site or RND Service, and indirectly through the use of Tracking Technology.
User Data that the RNDA collects may include, but is not limited to: PII such as your name, user name, IP/MAC address, title, telephone number, email address, and user identification information, the name, title, company name, telephone number and email address for the individual you may identify as your “authorizer”, registrant company name, company type, and address, as well as any additional supplemental information that the RNDA may request or that you may choose to provide from time to time (including in connection with questions or comments you may provide to us or in connection with seeking support with respect to the RND).
User Data may also include, but is not limited to: your zip code, unique device identifier, referrer and exit websites and applications, browser type, browser language, operating system, geographic location, date and time of your queries and search queries, as well as information with respect to the interaction between you and the Site or the RND Service, including but not limited to date and time of your visit, length of your visit and pages viewed. In some instances, such User Data may be considered PII.
If you are a Caller or a Caller Agent, you may be required to provide additional information, including credit card numbers or banking account information, to RNDA’s Outside Contractors (as defined below) providing payment processing services (the “Payment Processors”).
Use and Disclosure of Information the RNDA Collects
PII: From time to time, the RNDA may use your PII to send you important notices, such as communications related to the Site, the RND Service, the RNDA, and changes to each of the foregoing terms, conditions and policies. Your PII may be deidentified and aggregated and used to help improve the Site and the RND Service and to better understand how they are used.
Storage and Deletion: The RNDA stores and processes User Data in the United States, and your User Data may therefore be accessible to law enforcement and regulatory authorities in the United States. The RNDA reserves the right to store User Data as long as may be permitted by applicable laws and regulations. The RNDA will delete your PII if you ask it to do so by contacting the RND Help Desk at 833-763-2366, unless the RNDA is required to retain it under any applicable laws or regulations.
Improper Conduct: The RNDA may use and share User Data to investigate and help prevent unlawful activity or activity that threatens its network or otherwise jeopardizes the provision or operation of any of the Site or the RND Service. The RNDA may disclose User Data to third parties (such as law enforcement) to the extent required by applicable laws or regulations or if it believes that such disclosure is needed to help prevent unlawful activity or any activity that threatens any of the Site, the RNDA or the RND Service.
Tracking Technology: The RND Service, the Site, email communications, informational advertisements and other interactive applications or services may use Tracking Technology. Tracking Technology helps the RNDA to better understand which parts of the Site and the RND Service that Users use and visit and to facilitate and measure the effectiveness of the Site, any RND Service-related surveys, functions or other Content.
The RNDA may send email messages, text messages, or “push” notifications from time to time which may include a “click-through URL” linked to the Site or RND Service. The RNDA, or third parties on its behalf, may track this click-through data to help determine interest in particular topics and measure the effectiveness of the communications to you. The RNDA may also include “pixel tags” or other similar technologies in the email messages, text messages or notifications that tell the RNDA whether the message has been opened or notification received. The RNDA may use this information to reduce or eliminate messages sent to you and other Users. If you prefer not to be tracked in this way, you should not click the text or graphic links in the messages or notifications.
The RND Service, the Site, RNDA and its Outside Contractors, and third parties, may use cross-device/cross-context tracking. For example, if you use multiple browsers on a single device, or use various devices (such as desktops, smartphones, and tablets) to access the RND Service or communicate with the RNDA, it may result in your having multiple accounts or profiles across these various contexts and devices. Cross-device/cross-context technology may be used to connect these various accounts or profiles and the corresponding data from the different contexts and devices. For the avoidance of doubt, the Site may use third-party service platforms (including to help analyze how users use the Site). These third-party service platforms may utilize Tracking Technology and may place cookies on your computer or mobile device. If you would like to disable "third party" cookies, you may be able to turn them off by going to the third party's website.
