In addition to Anthem Broadband’s direct collection of information, third party service vendors (such as credit card companies, clearinghouses and banks) who may provide such services as credit, insurance, and escrow services may collect information from Visitors and Customers. Anthem Broadband does not control how these third parties use such information, but does ask them to disclose how they use personal information provided to them from Visitors and Customers.

Specifically, only when enabled via system permission by the user on the Anthem Broadband VoIP Android and Anthem Broadband VoIP iOS applications, Anthem Broadband shows personal contacts within the respective application. When the user sends an SMS message to one of his/her phone contacts, or when the user initiates a call to one of his/her phone contacts, the phone number is sent securely through the Anthem Broadband API. Anthem Broadband does not store this number with any other Customer Properitary Network Information (CPNI), and it cannot be directly or indirectly attributed to any person or persons; Anthem Broadband stores only the phone number and pertinent metadata so as to be compliant with all applicable state and federal laws, and Anthem Broadband does not share this data with any advertisers or third parties under any circumstances. A user can revoke phone contact access on his/her mobile device at any time, and his/her app experience is not hindered or interrupted.
Anthem Broadband VoIP Android and iOS applications also use Gravatar, only when enabled via Settings, a service that provides avatar images linked to the MD5 hash of the user’s email address. This means that, only when Gravatar use is enabled, we hash each contact’s email address and send it to Gravatar to try and retrieve an avatar image. MD5 hashes cannot be directly or indirectly attributed to any person or persons, and we only send the MD5 hash to Gravatar, never the email address in plain text. As with phone contacts, a user can revoke Gravatar access at any time in Settings and his/her app experience is not hindered or interrupted.
