This Privacy Notice lets you know how we will collect, use, store and share your Personal Information (defined below) in connection with the Website and Platform Services. This Privacy Notice, however, is limited to Personal Information collected in connection with the Website and Platform Services. Other policies and notices may apply to other data collected outside of the Website or Platform Services.
In providing our Website and Platform Services, we collect information that could be used to identify, contact, or locate you (“Personal Information”). We cannot and do not access the information hosted by the Platform Services, but rather collect information (which may include Personal Information) about users of the Platform Services and Website.
Information that you Provide
The categories of Personal Information that we collect from you may include:
- Business contact information and contact preferences (such as your name, organization, title, phone number, and email address);
- Account log-in and other credentials (such as your email address and password when you sign up for an account with us; account number password recovery information; and authentication questions and answers);
- Marketing preferences;
- Support requests and support history;
- Online browsing information and interaction with our chatbot;
- Payment information (e.g., billing address); and
- Information that you provide in the Website and Platform Services, such as demonstration requests and queries sent through the Website’s contact form.
We collect information automatically, including through cookies, from you when you visit and use the Website and Platform Services. Such information, which may include Personal Information, includes the following:
- Usage Information. We collect information, including click data and preference settings, about how you interact with the Platform Services and Website to operate, improve and market the Platform Services and Website.
- Device Information. To manage the Website and Platform Services, we collect information about the devices you use to access the Website and Platform Services, including your device type, location, and IP address.
- Transaction Information. We and, or our third-party providers collect other transaction details related to your purchases of Platform Services.
To the extent such other information is directly linked to your Personal Information, it will be considered Personal Information. We and third parties may create aggregate and/or de-identified information (i.e., information from which personally identifiable elements have been removed or modified), which is not considered Personal Information. We use such aggregate statistics to optimize and market the Website Platform Services.
The purposes for which we use the Personal Information and other data that we collect include:
In addition to the uses described above, we may use and share all of the categories of Personal Information that we collect to provide the Website and Platform Services, and related business purposes as permitted or required by applicable law or legal process, including, for example, for the following activities: network management, fraud prevention, and identity verification.
We may share Personal Information with the vendors that provide services on our behalf. We share all of the categories of information that we collect with vendors that provide services such as website analytics, customer resource management, marketing, and customer support. In addition, we retain some vendors, such as payment processors, to collect and manage Personal Information on our behalf. We require these vendors to maintain reasonable security of the Personal Information that they process.
We reserve the right to use and/or disclose Personal Information if we have a good faith belief it is necessary to: (1) comply with the law or legal process; (2) protect our network, rights or property or those of others; (3) respond to fraud, abuse or unauthorized reception or access; (4) enforce our Policies posted on Cox.com; or (5) act in an emergency to protect your safety or that of another person. We may also use and/or disclose Personal Information with your consent, as explained at the time of collection, or as otherwise not prohibited by applicable law and not inconsistent with this Privacy Notice or any notice given by us at the time of collection. Further, we may disclose and/or transfer Personal Information in connection with or during negotiations of any proposed or actual financing of our business, or merger, purchase, sale, joint venture, or any other type of acquisition or business combination of all or any portion of Cox assets, or transfer of all or a portion of Cox’s business to another company, whether as a going concern or as part of bankruptcy, liquidation, or similar proceeding.
The Website and Platform Services may include or link to third-party websites, apps, platforms or other services ("Third-Party Service(s)"). When you access those Third-Party Services, you may be interacting directly with the Third-Party Service even if you have not closed out of the Website or Platform Services. Please review the Privacy Policies and other notices provided by those parties to you.
Information We Must Disclose
We regularly receive legal requests for customer information from government and law enforcement personnel. We also receive discovery requests in civil cases. We cooperate by providing the information required by law. Cox does not volunteer users’ information or give access to customer communications to law enforcement or others, except in the "Special Exceptions" detailed in the “Use and Sharing” section above or if we have a good faith belief that an emergency involving a danger of death or serious physical injury requires disclosure. Many criminal subpoenas require that we not disclose or notify you of the request. Due to this fact and the volume of requests we receive, we do not assume any duty to notify you of receipt of any legal requests.
How Can I Opt-Out of Promotional Correspondence?
We may send you emails with promotional offers. If you would no longer like to receive information, newsletters or other promotional messages from us, please click the “UNSUBSCRIBE” link at the bottom of any such email you receive from us and follow the instructions, or alternatively you may contact us at [email@example.com] with the word “UNSUBSCRIBE” or “REMOVE” in the subject line. Your email address will be removed from our marketing list. Please allow us a reasonable period of time in order to satisfy your request, as some promotions may already be in process.
We retain the Personal Information that we collect from you in accordance with Cox policy and where we have an ongoing legitimate business need to do so (for example, to provide you with the Services you requested or to comply with an applicable legal requirement).
The Website and Platform Services are intended for use by a general audience and account holders must be of the age of majority. We do not intend to or knowingly collect Personal Information from children under the age of 13. If you believe your child may have provided us with their Personal Information, you can contact us and we will delete their Personal Information to the extent required by COPPA.

If you are using the Website or Platform Services, or any part thereof, from outside of the United States of America, please be aware that your information may be transferred to, stored or processed in the United States. The data protection and other laws of the United States and other countries might not be as comprehensive as those in your country, but please be assured that we take steps to protect your privacy.
