What data does UTS process?
Personal data is all data that can be traced to individual natural persons. Personal data can be subdivided in user data, traffic data and location data.
UTS may ask you to provide user data such as, but not limited to, your name, address, city, bank account number, email address, fixed and mobile telephone number, fax number, Fun Miles number, ID number and birth date when you sign up as a customer of UTS. When you create an account on the website, UTS can also request you to provide a password and username. This data will be processed by UTS.
If you use your fixed or mobile telephone, other mobile device or use the Internet, UTS ‘carries’ your information. This data is referred to as traffic data and is processed by UTS. It concerns data related to for example the time and duration of the use of a connection, the called number, surfing behavior on the Internet or your IP address.
Our network detects your mobile device’s approximate location whenever it is turned on. This location technology may be used by UTS to provide location-based services to you such as for example applications for mobile telephony. The data about your location is referred to as location data.
Why does UTS process your data?
UTS processes your user, traffic and location data for a variety of business purposes, including but not limited to deliver the services, invoice for the services and products, respond to malfunctions or complaints, make internal strategic plans on current and future offers and verify your identity and creditworthiness. Without processing this data UTS would not be able to provide its services. We may disclose personal information to third parties who complete transactions or perform services on our behalf (for example billing, shipping, customer service and marketing) or transfers related to your service (for example number portability). We typically restrict by contract the manner in which these third parties may use and disclose personal information about you without your consent. Your personal information may be disclosed when the use of our services allow you to take advantage of services and products offered by other companies. For example, if you are roaming on the network of another carrier, your wireless telephone number, the numbers you dial, and other information about your usage will be available to that carrier to facilitate that service.
Marketing research, marketing and sales activities
UTS processes your user, traffic and location data for marketing research and marketing and sales activities (even after termination of the agreement). Your data may be processed in order to provide you with offers from UTS in writing, by telephone or electronically (including via SMS and e-mail). UTS may provide personal data to third parties for marketing research and sales activities. UTS wants to provide you with meaningful choices regarding our marketing communications and you may choose to limit or opt-out of certain electronic communications from UTS at any time. While you may elect not to receive marketing information from UTS, if you subscribe to our services or buy our products, you will continue to receive invoices, customer-service and transactional notices, and similar communications. Not all marketing communications you receive on your device are sent or authorized by UTS. When you provide your mobile number or other contact information to others, you may receive unwanted calls, text messages, or e-mails on your device.
Pursuant to the law, UTS could be obliged to store your user, traffic and location data and in some cases provide it to third parties such as for example in the event of a criminal investigation when data has to be provided to the competent authorities or when UTS has to provide personal data to the regulator pursuant to the operating license.

UTS processes your traffic data, location data and user data to invoice for the delivered services. On the specification of the invoice the date, time and number called will be visible.
UTS may process your user data and traffic data and provide it to third parties for collection purposes in the event you do not comply with your payment obligations.
