Welcome to Connected2Fiber! So, Who Are We?

Connected2Fiber is in the business of providing location insight – displaying deep, trusted data on locations, networks that service them, and tenants residing in them. Its applications use this insight to automate heavily manual processes organizations suffer through when maximizing deal participation, targeting prospects, and pricing offerings to win.

Our indexing systems (“Connected2Fiber Indexers”) collect information from a variety of sources in order to compile “Attribute Data” about corporations, non-profits, and similar entities (“Companies”) and the professionals that work for them (“Professionals”). A complete list of Attribute Data we make available to users of the Site and Services (defined below) can be found at www.connected2fiber.com/attributes.

When you browse or visit our Site, contact us, or set up a user account with us, we might collect any Personal Information that you voluntarily submit to us, such as through a web form, in an email or other message (including in the “envelope” of the message, such as the From: or Subject: lines), or during the account creation process. Personal Information collected in this way includes identifiers, such as your name, business address, email address, and similar identifiers; the Connected2Fiber products or services you’ve purchased or considered purchasing, and similar commercial information; and professional or employment-related information relevant to you as an agent of your business. As this information is submitted by you in freeform text fields or over the phone, we cannot control what you submit to us, but we ask that you only submit personal information relevant to the interaction or the specific questions asked. We may collect additional financial information from you if you become or intended on becoming a customer, such as credit card or other banking information, billing name, and billing address.

We use the information described in this subsection for our operational purposes, such as responding to your inquiries, routing you to the Connected2Fiber team member who can assist you, maintaining and servicing your account with us, providing customer service, processing or fulfilling your orders and transactions with us, verifying your information, processing payments, internal business functions such as accounting and forecasting, and similar purposes.

Information from cookies, web server logs, and other technologies

Like many other commercial websites, we may also gather information in connection with your use of the Site or Services through the use of “cookies” and other similar technologies such as web server logs, pixels, and end-user website activity (collectively, “Tracking Technologies”).

We use the information described in this subsection for auditing, security, debugging, internal research and development, maintaining the quality and safety of our Services, and service performance purposes. In particular, we use this information to measure web traffic and usage activity on our Site for purposes of improving and enhancing the functionality of our Site, to look for possible fraudulent activity, and to better understand the sources of traffic and transactions on our Site.

Information from Connected2Fiber Indexers

Our Connected2Fiber Indexers collect a variety of information and data for purposes of creating our database of Attribute Data and for providing the Services. We collect Personal Information as Attribute Data, and to help us compile, organize, and verify Attribute Data, in the following ways:

(1) from publicly accessible sources, both online and offline, algorithmically through the Connected2Fiber Indexers or provided by third parties;
(2) through licensing agreements directly with data brokers or other Companies, pursuant to their privacy policies and terms and conditions; and
(3) directly contributed by individuals, about both Professionals and Companies in the form of “Crowdsourced Data”, meaning information and data collected through Connected2Fiber Services that we may offer in connection with free browser-based add-ons, extensions, or plug-ins (“Connected2Fiber Browser Extensions”).

We use Attribute Data to provide the Services, for internal research and development purposes, and to maintain and improve the quality of our Services. We may also use Attribute Data to collect metadata, such as activity signals or IP registration information. We use this metadata to improve the quality of the Connected2Fiber Indexers, to authenticate that certain Attribute Data (such as email addresses or phone numbers) relate to business use and not personal use, and to verify the accuracy, integrity, and completeness of our Attribute Data.

Our Services are designed to help our customers and partners in a wide variety of ways, including by helping them determine which Companies might make the best customers, identify the contacts within those organizations by department, role or seniority that might improve or expedite their interactions with those Companies, and enabling them to personalize their interactions with those Companies. Please note that the use of Attribute Data by our customers is governed by their respective privacy policies.

Connected2Fiber Browser Extensions

Users of the Connected2Fiber Browser Extensions can choose to make certain information and data available to the Connected2Fiber Indexers. When you install a Connected2Fiber Browser Extension, you may elect to link certain applications, such as email clients. If you do, you grant us permission to access, use, and share certain information contained therein as Crowdsourced Data. This information may include contacts’ names, email addresses, social media handles, contacts-in-common, business phone numbers, business-related postal addresses, supervisors’ and assistants’ names, job titles and departments, company names, company website URLs, and IP addresses. Use of the Connected2Fiber Browser Extensions is subject to the Connected2Fiber Terms of Service, pursuant to which you confirm that you have the authority to share the information described in this subjection and to permit us to use any Personal Information we collect from you through the Connected2Fiber Browser Extensions in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

Service Providers and Similar Third Parties

We also share Personal Information with service providers and third parties for our operational purposes and the below described business purposes.

Your Choices

We give you a variety of options with respect to the Personal Information we collect.

Additional Notices for Certain Jurisdictions

Connected2Fiber is based in the United States. The Site and Services are controlled and operated by us from the United States and are not intended to subject us to the laws or jurisdiction of any state, country or territory other than that of the United States. Your Personal Information may be collected, transferred to, stored and otherwise processed in any country where we have facilities or in which we engage service providers, and by using the Site and/or Services you consent to the transfer of information to countries outside of your country of residence, including the United States, which may have data protection rules that are different from those of your country.

You may be entitled to additional privacy notices depending on where you are located. Please see the appropriate subsection below that may apply to you.

California

Connected2Fiber has prepared additional disclosures and notices consistent with the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA). Our CCPA Policy, the terms of which are incorporated by reference into this Privacy Policy, can be found here.

Nevada

If you would like to request that we refrain from selling your Covered Information (as defined under Nevada law), please contact us at privacy@connected2fiber.com.

EU-U.S. and Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield Frameworks

Connected2Fiber has submitted a request to be certified to the EU- and Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield Frameworks. Our Privacy Shield Policy, the terms of which will be incorporated by reference into this Privacy Policy, once approved.

Protection of Information

Connected2Fiber considers the security of all the information and data within our control to be a top priority, and consistent with this we implement appropriate technical and organizational safeguards to protect from accidental or unlawful destruction, loss, alteration, unauthorized disclosure of, or access to, such information or data. However, no security system is impenetrable, and unanticipated system failures or the efforts of malicious actors are an unfortunate reality on the internet. Therefore, we cannot guarantee that the information and data within our control, including Personal Information, is absolutely secure.

Connected2Fiber retains Personal Information described in this Privacy Policy for as long as is necessary to comply with legal obligations, enforce our agreements, maintain existing relationships with our customers, and otherwise as might be necessary for our legitimate business interests.

How We Respond to Do Not Track Signals

Your browser settings may allow you to automatically transmit a Do Not Track signal to websites and other online services you visit. Because we do not track our visitors to provide targeted advertising, we do not alter our practices when we receive a Do Not Track signal from a visitor’s browser.
