Under federal law, you have a right, and Mint Mobile has a duty, to protect the confidentiality of information regarding your telephone use, the services you purchase from us, the calls you place and the location of your device on our network when you make a telephone call. This information is referred to as, among other things, “Customer Proprietary Network Information.” We may share Customer Proprietary Network Information with our affiliates; provided, however, that we will first notify you of your rights under applicable law, describe how we intend to use the Customer Proprietary Network Information, and give you an opportunity to opt-out of such use (or opt-in, to the extent required by applicable law).

9. California Residents
California has a data protection law called the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), as amended, and this Section 9 includes information Mint Mobile is required to disclose under that law. This section applies to you only if you are a California resident.
Selling and Sharing Personal Information
The CCPA gives California residents certain rights, including the right to tell companies to not “sell” or “share” their personal information. In this Section 9, we use the terms “sell” and “share” as they are defined in the CCPA. The CCPA defines “sell” or “sale” broadly to include the sharing of personal information (including information that does not directly identify an individual) in exchange for anything of value, which isn’t limited to the exchange of money. “Share” is defined narrowly as providing personal information to a third party for cross-context behavioral advertising to a consumer based on information about their activity on multiple websites across the internet. We engage in certain activities (as described below) that may be considered selling or sharing personal information under the CCPA. That’s why we include a “Do Not Sell or Share My Personal Information” link at the bottom of most of our website pages and in some of our apps. If you are a California resident, you can click this link to tell us to not sell or share your personal information. Note that according to the CCPA, certain exchanges of personal information aren’t considered selling or sharing. For example, if you specifically direct us to share your personal information, then we’ll do so. It is also not selling or sharing if we place ads based solely on information we collect when you visit our websites. Other examples include disclosures of personal information to service providers or other third parties as described in Section 2 above.
Global Privacy Control
Mint Mobile participates in a service called the Global Privacy Control (GPC) that lets you set a “Do Not Sell or Share” preference at the browser level. You’ll need to have a GPC-enabled browser or browser extension that you’ll activate or turn on in the browser. When you visit a website, your browser will automatically send the site a “Do Not Sell or Share” signal and participating websites, like ours, will honor your preference. Note: Not all browsers and extensions offer a GPC setting. To download a GPC-enabled browser, go to the Global Privacy Control website. To check if our website received your GPC signal, click on the “Do Not Sell or Share My Personal Information” link in our footer. If we’re receiving your GPC signal, we’ll automatically opt you out of the sale of your personal information and tell you that a GPC signal was used. When we’re detecting your active GPC signal, we won’t allow you to opt back into the sale or sharing of your personal information.

Sensitive Personal Information
California residents have the right to limit the use of “sensitive personal information” (as defined in the CCPA) to certain purposes specified in the CCPA. However, Mint Mobile already only collects or processes sensitive personal information with your consent and for those purposes specified in the CCPA. Mint Mobile also does not use sensitive personal information for inferring characteristics about you.
Privacy tools and choices for California Residents
You have the right to know the categories and, in some cases, specific pieces of personal information we have collected about you, the categories of sources from which the personal information was collected, the business or commercial purpose for collecting, selling, or sharing personal information, the categories of personal information about you that we have either sold or shared for a business purpose, and the categories of third parties to whom we disclose personal information.
You have the right to request deletion of your personal data, but certain exceptions may apply. For example, we may keep personal information that is necessary to comply with a legal obligation, detect security incidents, or troubleshoot to identify and repair errors in our network.
You have the right to request correction of inaccurate personal data we maintain about you. Once we receive and confirm your verifiable consumer request, we will use commercially reasonable efforts to correct the inaccurate personal information.
You have the right to opt-out of the sale or sharing of your personal information by clicking on the link at the bottom of most of our website pages, which is also available at the bottom of most of our website pages.
