We may share personal data that we collect about You with other Masergy entities for legitimate business purposes, such as administering our databases and sending You information that You have requested about our affiliates’ products, solutions or services.

We share personal data with service providers that perform services on our behalf such as IT service providers, technology partners, marketing providers, billing and payment processors, analytics providers, and hosting providers. Our primary global service providers are located in the U.S. We only share aggregated information with Masergy customers, partners, and advertisers.

Data Transfers

Our operations centres are located in the United Kingdom, the United States and Philippines. We may transfer the personal data that we collect about You to recipients in countries other than the country in which the personal data originally was collected. Those countries may not have the same data protection laws as the country in which You initially provided the personal data. When we transfer Your personal data to recipients in other countries, we will protect that personal data as described in this Privacy Policy.

We will comply with applicable legal requirements by providing adequate protection for the transfer of personal data to data recipients in countries outside of the European Economic Area (“EEA”) and Switzerland. To the extent that these data recipients are in countries that have not been recognized by the European Commission as providing an adequate level of data protection, we ensure that appropriate safeguards aimed at ensuring such a level of data protection are in place, including by entering into the European Commission’s EU Standard Contractual Clauses with the data recipients, or ensuring that the data recipient has certified to the EU-U.S. or Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework, or has implemented Binding Corporate Rules. To obtain a copy of the safeguards we have put in place, please contact us as indicated below.

Retention of Personal Data

Masergy will keep Your personal data for the time period necessary to achieve the purposes outlined in this Privacy Policy, taking into account applicable statute of limitation periods and records retention requirements under applicable law. Subject to applicable law, we will retain personal data as required by the company to meet our business and compliance obligations, for example, to comply with our tax and accounting obligations.

Your Rights and Choices

You can tell us at any time not to send You marketing communications by e-mail by clicking on the unsubscribe link within the marketing e-mails You receive from us, or by sending an “opt out” request to the address indicated on such email. You may request not to be contacted by Masergy in connection with any new services, updates, news, or systems outages by contacting us as described below.

Subject to applicable law, You have the right to request access to and rectification of the personal information we maintain about You, to request the restriction of the processing of Your personal information, or to object to that processing on grounds relating to Your particular situation.

In addition, You may have the right to request erasure of Your personal information in certain circumstances provided by applicable law. Subject to applicable law, where technically feasible, upon written request and verifiable identification, we will provide You with a copy of Your personal information in a structured, commonly used, machine-readable format. To exercise these rights, please contact us as indicated below. You may lodge a complaint with a data protection authority if You are not satisfied with our response.

How We Protect Personal Data

Masergy maintains technical and organizational safeguards to ensure an appropriate level of security and confidentiality for Your personal data, in accordance with our policies and applicable legislation. We aim to ensure protect the confidentiality for Your personal data, to prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information. However, Masergy cannot guarantee and has no control over the public, in certain cases, or third party networks through which You may send Your personal data to the Site.

Customer Proprietary Network Information (CPNI)

CPNI refers to and includes information that Masergy has about You solely by virtue of our relationship with You as our customer. CPNI includes information about (i) the type of service You subscribe to, such as the technical configuration, destination and location of services (e.g., service addresses, circuit speed and capacity, etc.); (ii) the amount of service You subscribe to (e.g., the monthly bill, number of lines, circuits, calls, minutes, etc.); and (iii) usage of the service (e.g., number called, calls received, time, location, or duration of any calls, and features utilized).

Masergy’s use of CPNI is subject to laws and regulations which obligates Masergy to: (i) maintain the confidentiality of CPNI and (ii) with certain exceptions as described below, to use CPNI only to provide and support the services to which You subscribe.

As a general rule, Masergy does not share CPNI with third parties except as necessary to provide the service requested by You, for example, a supplier may need to know Your service location in order to deliver a local circuit. Even then, CPNI is only provided to the supplier to the extent necessary to provide the service You request.

Masergy uses CPNI to provide You the services that You subscribe to, manage services that You request, recommend new products and services that may be of interest to You, provide inbound marketing services if You contact Masergy for that purpose, conduct customer satisfaction surveys, bill and collect for services rendered, and protect Masergy’s rights and property, including fraud control.

Masergy may, from time to time, contact You to authenticate any person requesting information to ensure that person is authorized to access CPNI on Your behalf. You have the right to correct, amend or delete individuals who are authorized to access CPNI on Your behalf by (a) contacting Masergy via electronic mail at csc@masergy.com; (b) calling Masergy toll free at 877-462-7374; or (c) making such changes via Masergy’s Intelligent Service Control portal located at www.masergy.com (changes may only be made by Your administrative user and requires prior account registration and setup). To protect Your privacy and security, Masergy will take reasonable steps to verify Your identity before granting access or making corrections.

Masergy reserves the right to modify this Privacy Policy at any time. Any changes will be posted on this Site. We will post a prominent notice on this web page to notify You of any significant changes to our Privacy Policy and indicate at the top of the notice when it was most recently updated. It will be Your responsibility to watch for and read the posted Privacy Policy changes.
