This Policy does not cover and we are not responsible for third-party websites or applications that may be linked from our applications; linking to them does not imply an endorsement. We are not responsible for these websites or applications or any information they may collect. You should always review the privacy policy of any third-party website or application.

Personal information we collect

When you use our Services, we may collect the below types of personal information:

An Important Note Regarding Biometric Information Collection

Services Performed at Your Home or Other Location

Please be aware that if you are receiving Services at your home or other location, the service provider may be able to view any other information that you make available or visible, which may include personal information.

For Services such as in-home repairs, with your consent, the service provider may need to access your device to perform Services requested by you such as changing settings, backing up your data, or provide technology set-up or advice.

If you are receiving a device repair, the service provider may need to take photographs of your device to confirm that it is damaged and has been repaired. Be aware that any information displayed on your device or surrounding areas may be visible in the photo.

Communications Tools

Our Services may allow you to communicate via audio, text, or video with us or another individual (e.g., friend or family member). While doing so, we collect the content (including any personal information) that you share, upload, or provide while using our Services to communicate. We also collect Technical Data (e.g., device model) and Log Information (e.g., date and time of your call) generated from your use of our communications tools.

If a particular communications tool captures images (e.g., video) or enables screen sharing, please be aware that we, or any other individual who is a party to the communication, may be able to view any information that you make available or visible, which may include personal information. At any time, you may terminate the video or screen sharing by, for example, closing the tab in your browser or selecting a button to end the session.

Using a Third-Party Account on our Services

If you use a third-party service (such as Google or other social media platform) to create an account, we may receive personal information that you allow such third-party service to share with us such as your name, e-mail address, profile picture, or other personal information.

Log Information

Asurion also automatically gathers and stores certain information in our server logs about the use of Asurion’s Services, including the number of unique visitors, the frequency of visits, how users interact with our Services, user experience preferences, and other information that may help Asurion improve the user experience, mitigate fraudulent activity, and comply with legal requirements. Such information may include Personal Information such as: IP address, Unique Device Identifier, CallerID / ANI (Automatic Number Identification) information, content of web pages, transaction with APIs (Application Program Interface), transactions with IVR (Interactive Voice Response) systems, activity and content of visitor interaction with call center representatives; application usage activity, hardware information, hardware and system settings, browser type, browser language, length of call, participant added to or exited from a call, the date and time of your request or call, or referral URL.


Cookies, Pixel Tags, and Other Tracking Technologies

Asurion and its partners use cookies or similar technologies, such as Google Analytics, on our websites and mobile applications to analyze trends, administer the website, track users’ movements around the website. Google Analytics uses third-party cookies to collect standard internet log information and visitor behavior information. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website, including your IP address, is transmitted to Google. This information is used to evaluate visitors’ use of the website and to compile website activity statistical reports for us. We do not use the statistical analytics tool to track or to link an IP address with the identity of a computer user. If you do not want any information to be collected and used by Google Analytics, you may be able to install an opt-out add-on to your web browser. You may learn more about how Google collects and uses personal information at “ How Google uses data when you use our partners’ sites or apps ”.

We also use these technologies to tailor and deliver advertising that may be more relevant or interesting to our users, and gather demographic information about our user base as a whole.

A cookie is a small data file that is managed by your web browser or other application and stored on your local system. Asurion uses session and persistent cookies to, among other things, identify your device during a particular interaction, analyze your behavior during a particular visit, and serve you advertising.

Pixel tags, also known as web beacons, help Asurion better manage user experience and content tracking. They also assist us in serving you advertising, including re-engaging you if you have searched for, viewed, and/or purchased our products or similar products. Pixel tags are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, which provide a similar function to cookies and are used to track user interaction with content provided by Asurion, an affiliate organization, or non-affiliated companies to assist us in providing, maintaining and operating our marketing. In contrast to cookies, which are stored on a user’s device hard drive, pixel tags are embedded within content. The small size and transparency of pixel tags are not intended to deceive content recipients, but rather minimize distraction. You may opt out of third-party cookies or similar tracking technologies used to serve you targeted advertising based on the Personal Information (e.g., device information) in our cookie banner or, if you are a California consumer, by following the “Sale of Personal Information” instructions contained in the Your California privacy rights section of this Policy.

You can also elect to block all cookies from first parties (such as Asurion) and from third parties (such as entities involved in advertising) by using the cookie blocking options built into your browser software. The methods for doing so vary from browser to browser, and from version to version. You can obtain up-to-date information about blocking and deleting cookies via these links:

Please note, however, that if you do decide to block cookies or similar technologies, some parts of Asurion’s websites may not function correctly.

In addition, associations in the digital advertising ecosystem provide methods for opting out of interest-based advertising (i.e., advertising that’s been customized based on predictions about your interests generated from your visits to different websites). If you wish to opt out of interest-based advertising click here or if you are located in the European Union click here. The Digital Advertising Alliance click here and the YourOnlineChoices page click here also provide opt-out mechanisms. Please note you will continue to receive generic ads.

Do Not Track

Do-Not-Track is a public-private initiative, http://www.w3.org/2011/tracking-protection/ , that has developed a technical “flag” or signal that an end-user may be able to activate within their browser software to notify websites that they do not wish to be “tracked” by third parties as defined by the initiative. The initiative, however, has not reached a consensus as to exactly what technical or other actions those parties receiving the signal should take. As a result, Do-Not-Track has not yet been standardized and most websites, including Asurion websites, do not alter their behavior or change their services when they receive a “do-not-track” flag or signal. You can, however, make decisions about your privacy and the advertisements you receive.

Third-party data sources

Asurion may leverage external data sources in order to provide context and background on the users of its services in order to improve customer experience, mitigate fraud or malicious activity, or comply with internal company and external regulatory requirements.

Personal Information we collect from Technical Data

When you install and use certain elements of our Services, such as a mobile or web application, browser plug-in, or Alexa skill, we may collect the below types of Technical Data, which may include:

How we use your personal information

An Important Note Regarding Biometric Processing

Where required by applicable law, Asurion will obtain appropriate consent for the use of biometric information as described above.

Communications Tools

Certain Asurion Services may collect audio, text, or video to allow you to communicate with us or another individual (e.g., a friend or family member). These communications tools enable you to send and receive messages, share your screen, make and receive video chats, or add us to your conversation to provide our Services (e.g., tech support). After your communication ends, we will not store or review the contents of a communication if we are not a participant in the communication. If we are a participant in the communication, we may store and review the text or audio content of your communication with us according to the purposes described in this Policy. We may also review the Technical Data (e.g., device model, operating system) and Log Information (e.g., length of call, participant added to or exited from call) collected from your use of our communications tools for these same purposes.

How we share and transfer your personal information

We will not use or disclose your personal information to non-affiliated third parties except as disclosed in this Policy.

International transfers of personal information

Please be aware that the personal information we collect may be transferred to and maintained on servers or databases located outside your state, province, country, or other jurisdiction, where the privacy laws may not be as protective as those in your location. If you are located outside of the United States, please be advised that we process and store personal information in the United States.

How we protect your personal information

We use commercially reasonable, industry standard technical, administrative, and physical controls to protect your personal information, including data encryption where appropriate; however, since the internet is not a 100% secure environment, we cannot ensure the security of information during its transmission between you and us. Accordingly, you acknowledge that when you transmit such information, you do so at your own risk. We will notify you of any confirmed security breach of your personal information to the extent required by and in accordance with law.

How long we keep your personal information

Asurion will retain your personal information as long as necessary to fulfill the purposes outlined in this Policy, unless a longer retention period is required or not prohibited by applicable law.

How you are notified if this Policy changes

We may change this policy from time to time. If we do, we will post the updated policy with the last revised date. Your continued use of our Services means that you acknowledge, and when permitted by law, consent to the updates. You should periodically read the Policy to understand our privacy practices.

If we make material changes to this Policy, we will notify you in the website, product, service, or application or by email and seek your affirmative consent where required.

Communicating with you electronically

By using our Services, you acknowledge that we can communicate with you electronically. This includes any required notifications (i.e., legal, technical, regulatory, security, privacy) relating to your use of the Services.

Commercial messages

Where required, Asurion will seek your express consent to send you such messages. This consent is sought by Asurion, LLC, 648 Grassmere Park, Nashville, TN 37211 USA. You may withdraw your consent by using the “unsubscribe” link located in the Where to turn with questions section of this Policy.

Your rights in connection with your personal information

For requests for which we are the processor, we will inform the controller of the request for their response.

A few notes about social media

Please be aware that any information that you submit to a social media website such as Facebook, Instagram or Twitter is done at your own risk and without any expectation of privacy. Asurion cannot control the actions of social media website users and is not responsible for any content or submissions contained on such websites. You should always review the privacy policy of any third-party website, product, service, or application.

By using any functionality that permits submissions to social media websites, you are indicating that you have reviewed the applicable privacy policy and terms of use of that website. Additionally, in the event that we offer functionality through our Services that permits the posting of content on social media, please be aware that these websites may allow you to publicly post and share this content. Asurion cannot guarantee the privacy and safety of these websites and is therefore not responsible for any content you post. Use these features at your own risk.

We will take steps to remove personal information from our storage systems and terminate the account if we determine that a child under 18 has accessed the Services.
