Last Updated: February 19, 2024

Your privacy is important to us at Sorenson Communications, LLC, CaptionCall, LLC and its affiliates (collectively “Sorenson,” “we,” “us,” or “our”), and we are committed to safeguarding, preserving, and respecting your privacy rights. This online privacy statement (the “Statement” or “Policy”) describes how we, and our partners, collect, use, disclose, and secure the personal information obtained through our website, and its associated sub-domains (the “Site”), our applications, products, services, when you view or interact with Sorenson social media accounts or any social media accounts or content affiliated with us, and when you interact with us as a customer or otherwise (collectively, the “Services”). This Statement may incidentally describe how our Services gather and use information about other individuals or information about you that may be submitted by another user.

For the purposes of this Statement, personal information means data that classifies as personal information, personal data, personally identifiable information, or similar terms under applicable data privacy and security laws and regulations. It does not include data excluded or exempted from those laws and regulations. Nothing in this Statement will constitute an admission or evidence that any particular data privacy or information security law or regulation applies to Sorenson generally or in any specific context.

This Policy expressly incorporates any privacy notices we may issue to supplement this Policy, for example if required by law. Depending on your residency, a supplemental privacy notice may apply to you. For example, if you are a California resident, please view our California Privacy Policy at Sorenson Legal.

2. What Types of Information Do We Collect? 

We collect information you voluntarily provide directly to us, information that we collect automatically when you interact with the Services, and information collected from third parties. The categories of personal information we collect and the purposes for which we collect information are described below.

Categories of Personal Information We Collect

The following list describes the categories of personal information we collect.

We collect this information when you provide it directly to us. Collection of this information may be used for the purposes of account creation and management, providing our Services, advertising, and marketing, analytics and research, customer service, and website security and maintenance. We also collect this information for compliance with laws, including 47 C.F.R. § 64.611(j), as part of registration for certain Services with the Federal Communications Commission’s User Registration Database.
  • Analytics Information includes certain information collected automatically as you navigate our Services. This includes cookies, tracking pixels, tags, or similar tools, which may collect information about your browser, device, geolocation, and interactions with the Services, Site, or emails. For more information, review the “How Do We Use “Cookies” and Other Tracking Technologies?” section below. Collection of this information may be used for the purposes of account creation and management, advertising and marketing, analytics and research, customer service, and website security and maintenance.
  • Contact Information includes name, address, phone number, and email address. We collect this information when you provide it directly to us, such as, when signing up for our Services, requesting information, creating an account, or filling out a form. Collection of this information may be used for the purposes of account creation and management, advertising and marketing, analytics and research, customer service, and website security and maintenance.
  • Commercial History includes information regarding your user preferences, purchasing history, dates of service, call information, video relay service/internet protocol caption telephone service provider name, and participation in promotional activities only as allowed by law. Collection of this information may be used for the purposes of account creation and management, advertising and marketing, analytics and research, customer service, and website security and maintenance.

  • Responses to Surveys and Questionnaires includes any information you provide to us when you voluntarily respond to market research surveys such as email address, age, or products for which you have indicated an interest. We collect this information for the purposes of advertising and marketing, analytics and research, customer service, and website security and maintenance.
  • Social Media Information includes information you post by sharing on a public website or another social media platform. We collect this information when you provide it directly to us. Your comments will be visible to the public, so you should never share personal information you would like to keep private. We collect this information for the purposes of advertising and marketing, analytics and research, customer service, and website security and maintenance.
  • User-Generated Content. If you post, upload, comment, or otherwise submit content on the Services, we may collect certain information about you such as your name and email address and products you may have used. Be aware that as a default, any information you post on the Services, including without limitation review, comments, and text, may be available to and searchable by all users of the Services. We collect this information for the purposes of account creation and management, advertising and marketing, analytics and research, customer service, and website security and maintenance.
  • Customer Proprietary Network Information (“CPNI”): We collect and maintain certain customer proprietary network information (“CPNI”) in accordance with the rules and regulations of the Federal Communications Commission. CPNI includes the types of services you currently receive and related usage and billing information for those services. This information is needed for us to provide you with our services and to seek compensation for our services from the Telecommunications Relay Services Fund. This information will be used to assess and improve our Products and Services. Your telephone number, name, and address are not CPNI. We do not sell, trade, or share your CPNI except as authorized by you or required by law. Generally, and not exclusively, we can use your CPNI without your approval to offer additional, related services to you, and for billing and collections purposes. We require your approval to market unrelated services to you, which we would seek via electronic methods. Before doing so, we will provide you notice of your right to restrict use and disclosure of, and access to, your CPNI. In addition, we can disclose your CPNI without your prior knowledge or consent for legal or regulatory reasons, including in response to subpoenas and court orders. We can also use CPNI to investigate fraud and to prevent violation of our Terms, Conditions, and Acceptable use Policies and unlawful use of our network and services. To use your CPNI for other reasons not set out in this Section we will provide you the option to “opt-out” or “opt-in” to such uses and disclosures. Generally, we may obtain your consent after providing notification through oral, written, or electronic methods.

Our services may require automated speech-recognition systems and individuals, including our representatives and agents, to process, listen to, and transcribe the incoming audio portion (one side) of your telephone conversations. To do this, the incoming audio portion of your telephone call audio will be transmitted to us, or our third-party contractors, for transcription and captioning. To protect your privacy, neither the audio transmission nor transcription of the call will be retained by us or our third-party contractors. By using our services, you agree to the transmission of the incoming audio portion of your telephone call audio to us or our agents and waive any rights you may have under applicable law restricting the same. To the extent permitted by law, you waive all privacy laws governing telephone communications and monitoring of the same. We provide telecommunications relay services, which are regulated by the FCC and will comply with the applicable FCC regulations. To the extent that any consent to disclosure of customer information set forth above in this Section is inconsistent with Sorenson’s obligations under applicable law with respect to protecting, storing, and using customer proprietary network information, we will adhere to the requirements of applicable law.

The following chart identifies the purposes for which we may collect your personal information, as well as information regarding our use and disclosure of that personal information. We may not collect each category of information about each user of our Services.

This section of our Privacy Policy is applicable to persons located in the European Union (“EU”), a European Economic Area member state (“EEA”), United Kingdom (“UK”), or Switzerland as well as to persons whose personal information is processed in or transferred from the EU, EEA, UK, or Switzerland. You are entitled under the EU General Data Protection Regulation and UK General Data Protection Regulation (collectively, the “GDPR”), to the information in this section of our Privacy Policy.

Your Rights

You are entitled by law to have the right of access, to information, to be informed, to be forgotten (erasure), to rectification, to restrict the processing of your personal information or data about you we hold. A summary listing these rights appears below. These rights are not absolute and certain exemptions may apply to specific requests you may submit to us.

To exercise these rights, contact us using the information below in the“Contact Us” section or view our “Make a Data Subject Request” page (Do Not Sell/Share My Information – Sorenson). For your protection, we may need to verify your identity before responding to your request. If we refuse a request, we will provide a reason as to why.

Asking us to access your personal information

You have the right to obtain from us confirmation as to whether or not we are processing personal information about you, and if so, the right to be provided with the information contained in this Policy. You also have the right to ask us for copies of your personal information. When making a request, please provide an accurate description of the personal information to which you want access. Where requests are repetitive or manifestly unfounded or excessive, we may charge a reasonable fee based on administrative cost.

Asking us to correct your personal information

You have the right to ask us to correct information you think is inaccurate. You also have the right to ask us to complete information you think is incomplete.

Asking us to delete your personal information

You have the right to ask us to erase your personal information if:

  • We no longer need it for the purposes for which we collected it;
  • We have been using it with no valid legal basis;
  • We are obligated to erase it to comply with a legal obligation to which we are subject;
  • We need your consent to use the information and you withdraw consent; or
  • You object to us processing your personal information where our legal basis for doing so is our legitimate interests and there are no overriding legitimate grounds for processing.

However, this right is not absolute. Even if you make a request for deletion, we may need to retain certain information for legal or administrative purposes, such as record keeping, maintenance of opt-out requirements, defending or making legal claims, or detecting fraudulent activities. We will retain information in accordance with the “How Long Is Your Personal Information Kept” pursuant to section 8 below.

If you do exercise a valid right to have your personal information deleted, keep in mind that deletion by third parties to whom the information has been provided might not be immediate and the deleted information may persist in backup copies for a reasonable period (but will not be available to others).

Asking us to restrict our use of your personal information

You have the right to ask us to place a restriction on our use of your personal information if one of the following applies to you:

  • You contest the accuracy of the information we hold about you, while we verify its accuracy;
  • We have used your information unlawfully, but you request us to restrict its use instead of erasing it;
  • We no longer need the information for the purpose for which we collected it, but you need it to address a legal claim; or
  • You have objected to us using your information, while we check whether our legitimate grounds override your right to object.

The right to transfer your personal information to another service provider

You have the right to ask that we transfer the personal information you gave us from one organization to another, or give it to you (i.e., data portability). This applies to personal information we are processing to service a contract with you and to personal information we are processing based on your consent.

The right to withdraw consent 

If we obtain your written consent to collect and process your personal information, you can subsequently withdraw such consent as to any further processing of such information.

The right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority 

If you believe your rights under the GDPR have been violated, the GDPR gives you the right to file a complaint with your supervisory authority. A list of supervisory authorities is available here: EEA and EU Data Protection Authorities (DPAs); Swiss Federal Data Protection and Information Commissioner (FDPIC); UK Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO).

Rights related to automated decision-making 

To the extent that we engage in decision-making based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which produces legal effects concerning you or which significantly affects you, you have the right not to be subject to such decision-making.

Right to object to processing

You have the right to object to the processing of your personal information based on legitimate interests or your consent (rather than when the reason for using it is to perform an obligation due to you being under a contract with us). If you make such an objection, we will cease to process the personal information unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing that override your interests, rights, and freedoms, or we can demonstrate the processing is for the establishment, exercise, or defense of legal claims. You can object to the processing of your personal information by contacting us using the information in the “Contact Us” section below. 

Legal Bases for Processing Your Personal Information

Sorenson collects your personal information to provide our products and Services to you; otherwise, we may not be able to process the transactions you request. We will only process your personal information when we have a lawful basis for doing so. If you are in a country in the EU, EEA, UK, or Switzerland, you are entitled to an explanation of the legal bases we rely on to process your personal information. The legal basis for collecting and using the personal information described above will depend on the personal information concerned and the specific context in which we collect it, which is discussed below.

  • Consent. We may process your personal information based on your consent such as when you purchase a service or ask us to send you certain kinds of marketing communications. You have the right to withdraw your consent at any time without affecting the lawfulness of the processing based on consent before its withdrawal.
  • Children’s Consent. We do not knowingly process data of EU, EEA, UK, or Swiss residents under the age of 16 without verified parental consent.
  • Our Legitimate Interests. We may process your personal information if doing so is necessary for our legitimate interests relating to our business purposes arising from your relationship with us, and your rights as an individual do not override those legitimate interests. For example, our legitimate interests include but are not limited to when we process your personal information to carry out fraud prevention activities, and activities to increase network and information security, identify usage trends, determine the effectiveness of promotional campaigns, expand our business activities, and improve our services and the content and functionality of our Services. Our legitimate interests also include providing you with the products and services you request, view, engage with, or purchase and communicating with you regarding your account or transactions with us.
  • To Perform a Contract. We may process your personal information to administer and fulfill contractual obligations to you. We will also collect and process your personal information as necessary for the performance of a contract to which you are a party.
  • To Enable Us to Comply with a Legal Obligation. We may process your personal information to comply with legal obligations to which we are subject. This may include any requirement to produce audited accounts, any legal obligation to share information with law enforcement agencies, public or governmental authorities, and to comply with legal process.
  • Necessary for the Exercise or Defense of Legal Claims. If you bring a claim against us or we bring a claim against you, we may process your personal information in relation to that claim.

Depending on the situation, we may be the controller or the processor for personal information collected from residents of the EU, EEA, UK, or Switzerland. If you have any questions about or need further information concerning the legal basis on which we collect and use your personal information for any specific processing activity, contact us using the “Contact Us” section below.

Cross-Border Transfers of Personal Information

Our Services are operated in the United States. Personal information about you provided while in the EU, an EEA member state, the UK, or Switzerland may be transferred to the United States. Your personal data may be transferred to or accessed by entities around the world, including but at times not limited to Sorenson affiliates, to perform processing activities such as those described in our Privacy Policy in connection with your use of our products and services. Sorenson complies with privacy regulations on the transfer of Personal Data (PD) between countries to help ensure our data is protected. The laws in the United States may not be as protective as the GDPR or the laws of other jurisdictions where you may be located. If we transfer personal information from the EU, EEA, UK, or Switzerland, or another country with cross-border transfer obligations, we will provide an appropriate safeguard, such as using the Standard Contractual Clauses (SCCs) or the Adequacy Decision.

To obtain a copy of the safeguard(s), please contact us using the information provided in the“Contact Us” section below.

If you no longer want to receive marketing-related emails from us going-forward, you may opt-out by using the mechanism contained in each such email or text message (SMS). Otherwise, you may unsubscribe by clicking the unsubscribe link in the footer of marketing emails you receive from Sorenson.

By providing your mobile phone number to us and consent to receive text messages, you opt-in and consent to receiving messages from us, which include but are not limited to text messages sent through an automatic telephone-dialing system.

8. Retargeting

Based on information relating to your use of our sites, we may use third-party advertising companies to serve ads regarding our services when you access and use other websites. These companies may place or recognize a unique cookie on your browser (including through the use of beacons and pixels). By utilizing the sites affiliated with Sorenson or CaptionCall, you consent to the use of cookies or other tracking technologies to serve you retargeted advertising. Data collected may be shared with third-party vendors for cross-device linking and advertising purposes.

9. How Long We Keep Your Personal Information (Data Retention or Retention Policy)

We will retain your personal information until the personal information is no longer necessary to accomplish the purpose for which it was provided. We may retain your personal information for longer periods for specific purposes to the extent that we are obligated to do so in accordance with applicable laws and regulations, to protect you, other people, and us from fraud, abuse, unauthorized access, as necessary to protect our legal rights, or for certain business requirements.

We will delete your personal information when it is no longer necessary for the purpose for which it was collected, or upon your request, subject to exceptions as discussed in this Statement or under applicable law, contract, or regulation.

If you use our mobile application, you can delete your account by submitting a request to [email protected] or by deleting your account through the application. If you delete your account from within the application, we will delete the accompanying personal data subject to legal and contractual requirements.

10. Our Commitment to Data Security

The security of your personal information is important to us. We take various reasonable organizational, administrative, and technical measures to protect your personal information from unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction. If required by law to do so, we will notify you and/or the relevant supervisory authority in the event of a data breach.

However, we cannot and do not guarantee complete security, as it does not exist on the internet.

11. Where Your Personal Information Is Held

We process personal information on our servers in the United States of America and may do so in other countries. If you use our Services or otherwise provide us with information from outside of the United States, you expressly consent to the transfer of your data to the United States, the processing of your data in the United States, and the storage of your data in the United States.

12. Third-Party Links

13. Children’s Privacy

Collection of Children’s Information. Protecting the privacy of the very young is especially important. Some of our Services are intended for children under 13 years of age, but note that the Site is not intended for children under 13. We do not knowingly collect or otherwise process personal information from anyone under 13 without first obtaining verified permission from that child’s parent or legal guardian. This Policy, along with any additional parental-consent forms provided as part of the provision of the Services to children, describes our privacy practices including the way we collect and process your child’s information. 

Obtaining Your Consent. Before your child uses our Services, we will obtain your affirmative and verifiable consent. We will obtain your consent via (1) your signed consent or application form (as applicable) or (2) providing you this Policy, asking whether you consent to these practices, and having you verify your identity by providing a valid, government-issued form of identification.

Information We Collect About Children. When you apply for our Services on behalf of your child and consent to the processing of your child’s personal information, we will collect the information listed in this Policy from you about your child. We may also collect certain information from you (the parent or guardian), as required by law or regulation and for administrative and billing purposes. 

How We Use and Share Information About Children. After we receive your permission to provide Services to your child, we will collect, store, and disclose personal information necessary to provide those Services to your child. We may share information about your child and your child’s use of the Services with third parties for billing and administrative purposes and otherwise, as required or permitted by law or regulation. We may share information about your child with government agencies and private entities responsible for administering or overseeing the Telecommunications Relay Service (“TRS”) Fund and verifying eligibility for Sorenson services. For example, Sorenson may submit your and your child’s information to the TRS User Registration Database, a database administered by a government contractor, as required by Federal Communications Commission (“FCC”) regulations. Additionally, we will submit information about your and your child’s TRS usage to the Administrator of the TRS Fund and/or the FCC for billing purposes.

Sorenson may also share your child’s name, image (if your child uploads an image), and video phone number(s) with other Sorenson users in your child’s contact list. Sorenson may also share information about your child’s location with emergency services if your child calls 911 from a mobile device enabled with the Services.

Your Choices About Your Child’s Information. You have control over the ongoing collection, use, and disclosure of your child’s personal information. You may also request deletion of your child’s personal information at any time. You have the right to consent to Sorenson’s collection and use of your child’s personal information while withholding consent for disclosure of that personal information to third parties. You may review, delete, or prohibit further collection of your child’s information at any time. If you have further questions or requests related to Sorenson’s online collection of information from children, send an email to [email protected].
