This policy outlines how we collect, use, and disclose Personal Data. It covers all Personal Data that you affirmatively provide during your online and offline interactions with us, information that we passively collect when you interact with our products and services, and information that we collect about you from our Clients and third parties. The policy is applicable worldwide, and also describes the rights you may have to control our use of Personal Data and how to exercise those rights.

Mostly, we gather this Personal Data directly from you or your devices. Some of this collection happens when you affirmatively send us information. You can choose not to provide Personal Data to Invoca, but you may be unable to access certain options and services if they require Personal Data that you have not provided. Some of the information collection happens passively – that is, the data is automatically collected when you interact with the Invoca Platform and our Services. You can adjust certain settings to reduce the amount of Personal Data we passively collect from you when you use our Products.
Categories of information collected from or on behalf of our Clients
Invoca, as part of our Services, collects or receives Personal Data from consumers who interact with our Clients’ websites and assigned phone numbers. Depending on how a Client configures and uses the Invoca Platform and Services, this may include the content of recorded telephone calls, as well as biometric data and biometric identifiers. This information, which we maintain exclusively on behalf and at the direction of our Clients, may include sensitive Personal Data including, without limitation, financial/credit card account data and/or health information. Invoca provides tools to redact/prevent recording of medical and financial health information. Invoca advises Clients to use such tools to prevent the collection and maintenance of sensitive Personal Data, but cannot guarantee that Clients use these tools in all cases. Our clients control this Personal Data and its collection and use is governed by their respective privacy policies, which may differ from Invoca’s policy. We encourage consumers with questions or requests related to Personal Data collected by Invoca’s Clients to contact those entities directly, and we will refer any consumer requests for PersonalData maintained by Invoca on behalf of a Client to that Client.

How long we retain your Personal Data depends on the type of data and the purpose for which we process the data.

Security of your Personal Data
