(IP Address and device identifiers are traditionally classified as Non-Personal Information, unless Rapid Systems is required to do so otherwise under applicable law.) “Cookies” and “web beacons” are text file identifiers Rapid Systems transfers to Customer’s browser or device that allow Rapid Systems to recognize Customer’s browser or device and tell Rapid Systems how and when pages and features on the Rapid Systems Site are visited, by how many people, and other activity on the Site.
Technology is improving every day and to improve Rapid Systems’ operations and functions Rapid Systems may introduce new technologies and monitoring techniques without advance notice or consent from Customer.

How is Personal Information used for marketing and advertising purposes?
Rapid Systems will use Personal Information to send Customer marketing and advertising messages related to Rapid Systems’ Services and Site using Customer’s email address, postal address, or telephone number (for voice, texts, and pre-recorded calls). Rapid Systems may deliver a marketing or advertising message based on Customer visits to the Rapid Systems Site, which is general advertising or “Contextual Advertising,” defined as advertising based on the subject matter or the content of the specific website page or subject matter. Rapid Systems may also send Customer “First Party Advertising,” which is advertising that is customized or personalized based on a history of Customer’s use of our Site or Services (possibly combined with information from our Facebook fan page or other social network platforms). First Party Advertising is based solely on a combination of information Rapid Systems collects from Customer – not from Customer’s visits to other websites across the Internet.
Customer may opt-out of First Party Advertising but not Contextual Advertising. No Personal Information is used to deliver Contextual Advertising; it automatically will appear based on the content or webpage Customer is viewing and thus is based on the context of that visit. Customer may continue to receive general advertising if Customer opts-out of First Party Advertising, it will not be customized or personalized for Customer.
Rapid Systems does not provide third party “Network Advertising,” which is advertising based on Customer’s overall Internet usage across different third party websites or online services. Multiple third party websites and online services are involved in this tailored or personalized advertising process, in essence a “network” of advertising providers.
Because Rapid Systems does not provide network ads, Rapid Systems does not recognize the “Do Not Track” settings on various Internet browsers. Rapid Systems does not engage or allow third parties to track you across the Internet and across time for advertising purposes.

Additionally, if Customer contacts Rapid Systems, Rapid Systems will ask Customer for verification of Customer’s identification and account. Rapid Systems will not send an email or text, nor should Customer respond to any email or text communications asking for any sensitive or confidential Personal Information, such as social security number, bank account or credit card account number, or a driver’s license number.

Only then will you have the ability to modify or update your Personal Information (including access to CPNI, if applicable), and receive other account information either via telephone or online. If Customer has any questions about viewing or updating information Rapid Systems has on file, please contact Rapid Systems at firstname.lastname@example.org
What third party disclosure choices do Customers have?
Customer can always choose not to disclose Personal Information to Rapid Systems; however, certain Personal Information is necessary for Rapid Systems to provide the Services to Customer or to access certain parts of the Site. Customers may opt out of sharing Personal Information with our Affiliates only for marketing or advertising purposes, but not for business or operational purposes.
Customer may opt out of email marketing and advertising from Rapid Systems or its Affiliates using the “Unsubscribe” mechanism in each email. Before Rapid Systems sends Customer a text for any reason, or sends Customer a pre-recorded call that contains advertising or marketing information, Rapid Systems will secure Customer’s prior written express consent, which can be given via a voice recording, email, text message, postal mail, or telephone key press. Non-telemarketing pre-recorded calls do not require Customer’s prior express consent in writing, unless they are sent to a wireless device. Customer understands, acknowledges and agrees that such texts and pre-recorded telemarketing calls may be sent using an autodialer and are not conditioned on your purchase of the Services. Customer may opt out of receiving text messages any time by replying “STOP” or “UNSUBSCRIBE” to the text message. Customer may opt out of receiving pre-recorded calls by the opt-out instructions in the call. However, Customer will continue to receive calls related to debt-collection and Customer’s current service. Customer may also opt-out of First Party Advertising, but not Contextual Advertising, as detailed in the “Use of Personal Information for Marketing or Advertising Purposes” section above.
