Privacy Policy

Privacy Policy Definitions

Before we can dive into the Privacy Policy we first need to break things down into a few different categories of personal information when you use our products and services.

Customer Account Data is your personal information as a customer of TeleDrip's services.

Customer Usage Data is the personal information of your end users or customers such as your Leads, Conversion Data, or Do Not Call data that you import into the TeleDrip system.

Customer Content is the contents of your communications made through the TeleDrip platform.

Personal Information means information from or about you that identifies you directly and information that is associated with you and thus could potentially identify you, including when combined with other information from or about you.

We process these categories of personal information differently because the direct relationship we have with you, our customer, is different than the indirect relationship we have with your end users.


Customer Account Data (Your Personal Information)

How TeleDrip Processes your Customer Account Data

Your privacy is very important to us. We differentiate between "controllers" and "processors" of personal information as is defined in the GDPR legislation. When TeleDrip processes your Customer Account Data, the TeleDrip entity with whom you are contracting is acting as a controller.

We use Customer Account Data to: understand our customers and potential customers, manage our relationships with customers, develop our products, fulfill regulatory obligations, protect our rights, or to investigate security incidents or fraud.

What Personal Information TeleDrip Collects

Like most website operators, TeleDrip collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. TeleDrip’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how TeleDrip’s visitors use its website. From time to time, TeleDrip may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

TeleDrip also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users filling out landing pages on any TeleDrip public facing website.

Here is a short list of the type of personal information we collect:

  • Names
  • Physical address
  • Email addresses
  • Telephone numbers
  • Business contact information, including names, email addresses, business addresses, telephone numbers, company name or business affiliation, and title.
  • User IDs and passwords
  • Personal information that you choose to share within our user communities
  • Payment card and financial account information
  • Identifiers of devices used to access our Services
  • IP Address and Geolocation data

Gathering of Customer Account Data

Certain visitors to TeleDrip’s websites choose to interact with TeleDrip in ways that require TeleDrip to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that TeleDrip gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who comment on our blog to provide a username and email address. Those who wish to receive TeleDrip updates via email, we collect their emails. For example, when you to sign up for an account, we ask for personal information, like your name, email address, telephone number or credit card to store with your account. When visitors comment on our blog, we ask them to provide a username and email address. For those who wish to receive TeleDrip updates via email, we collect their emails.

In each case, TeleDrip collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with TeleDrip. We may collect information about you, as our customer, from publicly-available or third parties so we can understand our customer base better. TeleDrip does not disclose Customer Account Data other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Customer Usage Data (Your End Users' Personal Information)

How TeleDrip Processes your Customer Usage Data

Your end users' personal information typically shows up on TeleDrip's platform in a few different ways:

1. Communications-related personal information about your end users, like your end users' phone numbers for number-based communications, your end users' email addresses for email communications, show up in our systems when you use or intend to use this information to contact your end user through use of our products and services.

2. Your end users' personal information will show up on a Lead when you upload a Lead through the API or through the Lead Upload Tool in the TeleDrip console. You can chose to upload personal information such as: first name, last name, address, zip_code and any other strings which you decide to include in custom fields such as sub1, sub2, and sub3.

3. Your end users' personal information may also be contained in the content of communications you (or your end users) send or receive using TeleDrip's products and services such as text message logs or call recordings.

We call the information in #1 and #2 above the Customer Usage Data. The information in #3 is what we refer to as Customer Content. As noted above, data protection law (including privacy law) such as GDPR differentiate between “controllers” and “processors” of personal information. When TeleDrip processes Customer Content or Customer User Data, we act as a processor.

What Customer Usage Data and Customer Content TeleDrip Processes and Why

We use Customer Usage Data and Customer Content to provide services to you and to carry out necessary functions of our business as a communications service provider. We do not sell your end users' personal information and we do not share your end users' information with third parties for those third parties' own business interests. The particular end user personal information TeleDrip processes when you, our customer, use our products and services depends on which fields you populate on Lead when creating a new Lead or DNC in the system either through the TeleDrip API or through an upload through the Console. In many cases, you can opt to store records of your communications, or other activities, on TeleDrip which may include your end users’ personal information. You have the option to use the Console to allow you to do things such as analyze the records, including end user personal information, in your TeleDrip account. In those cases, TeleDrip will process this information to provide you with the service you request. In addition, records containing end user personal information may, from time to time, also be used in debugging or troubleshooting or in connection with investigations of security incidents, as well as for the purposes of detecting and preventing spam or fraudulent activity, and detecting and preventing network exploits and abuse. It may also be anonymized, as allowed by law, and we may use data that can no longer identify you or relate to you for our legitimate business needs.

How Long Do We Store Customer Usage Data and Customer Content and Exercising Choices About End User Personal Information

How long your end user personal information may be stored in TeleDrip and how to delete it depends on the type of data. Customer Usage Data is stored on TeleDrip for as long as is necessary to service your account. Upon cancellation of an account, we will retain Customer Usage Data for up to 60 days at which point it is deleted. Deleting a Lead in the Lead Explorer will cause the Lead and associated Customer Usage Data to be deleted permanently. How long Customer Content Data is stored depends on the type of Customer Content. Call Recordings are deleted after 60 days automatically. SMS Messages on TeleDrip servers are deleted after 60 days automatically. The SMS Message history is kept on Twilio or Nexmo's secure servers indefinitely. If you instruct us to delete Customer Content Data we will do so but you must email support@teledrip.com with your request. In some cases, a copy of those records, including the personal information contained in them, may nonetheless be retained to carry out necessary functions like billing, invoice reconciliation, troubleshooting, and detecting, preventing, and investigating spam, fraudulent activity, and network exploits and abuse. Sometimes legal matters arise that also require us to preserve records, including those containing personal information. These matters include litigation, law enforcement requests, or government investigations. If we have to do this, we will delete the impacted records when no longer legally obligated to retain them. We may, however, retain or use records after they have been anonymized, if the law allows.

When and why we share Customer Usage Data and Customer Content and Exercising Choices About End User Personal Information

We do not sell your Customer Account Data or Customer Usage Data to third parties for their marketing purposes. We do not sell your end users' personal information. We may disclose your end users personal information to be in compliance with legal obligations or if:

  • We believe it is necessary to do so to be in compliance with regulation, legal process, or a government request
  • To enforce our Terms of Service
  • To protect the security of our Sites and Services
  • It is necessitated by a business transfer such as a merger or acquisition.
