  • take, process or deliver orders made via our websites, invoice you or notify you of the status of your order;

 Sharing of Your Personal Information

Except as provided below, SmashTel will not sell, rent, trade or otherwise transfer any personal and/or traffic data or communications content outside of SmashTel and its controlled subsidiaries and affiliates without your explicit permission, unless it is obliged to do so under applicable laws or by order of the competent authorities.

With your consent. We will share personal information with companies, organizations or individuals outside of SmashTel when we have your consent to do so.

For legal reasons. SmashTel may disclose personal information to respond to legal requirements, exercise our legal rights or defend against legal claims, to protect SmashTel interests, fight against fraud and to enforce our policies or to protect anyone's rights, property, or safety.

SmashTel, SmashTel local partners, or the operator or company facilitating your communication may provide personal data, communications content and/or traffic data to an appropriate judicial, law enforcement or government authority lawfully requesting such information. SmashTel will provide reasonable assistance and information to fulfill this request and you hereby consent to such disclosure.

For external processing. In order to provide you with SmashTel products you have requested, SmashTel may sometimes, if necessary, share your personal and traffic data with SmashTel group companies, carriers, partner service providers and/or agents. For example, PSTN-VOIP gateway providers, WIFI access services providers, distributors of SmashTel software and/or SmashTel products, and/or the third-party banking organizations or other providers of payment, email delivery, analytical services, customer support, or hosting services. SmashTel will always require these third parties to take appropriate organizational and technical measures to protect your personal data and traffic data and to observe the relevant legislation.

As SmashTel continues to develop its business, SmashTel might sell or buy subsidiaries or business units. In any such transactions in which SmashTel or substantially all of its assets are acquired by a third party, personal information of SmashTel users will generally be one of the transferred business assets. We reserve the right to include your personal information in any such transfer to a third party.

You can configure your browser to accept all cookies, reject all cookies, or notify you when a cookie is sent. Please refer to your browser instructions or help screens to learn more about these functions. If you reject all cookies, you may not be able to use our websites.

 Information You Share

Many of our services let you share information with others. Remember that when you share information publicly, it may be indexable by search engines.

 Linked Websites and Third-Party Applications

SmashTel websites may contain links that will let you leave SmashTel website and access another website. Linked websites are not under the control of SmashTel and these websites have different privacy policies. The SmashTel Privacy Policy applies solely to personal information that is acquired on the websites or through your use of the SmashTel software, SmashTel products and/or your relationship with SmashTel, so SmashTel urges you to be careful when you enter any personal information online. SmashTel accepts no responsibility or liability for these other websites.

If you use any extras, plug-ins or third-party applications together with the SmashTel software or use any third-party applications or products that incorporate or embed the SmashTel software (“Applications”), the provider of such Applications may obtain access to certain personal information about you. SmashTel does not and cannot control how the provider of Applications may use any personal information connected in connection with such Applications. Please ensure that you review any privacy policies or other terms applicable to the use of such Application before installation.

 Security of Your Personal Information

SmashTel will take appropriate organizational and technical measures to protect the personal data and traffic data provided to it or collected by it with due observance of the applicable obligations and exceptions under the relevant legislation. Your personal and traffic data can only be accessed by authorized employees of SmashTel or its affiliates, subsidiaries or service providers who need to have access to this data in order to be able to fulfill their given duties.

Contacting You

SmashTel may from time to time ask you to provide information on your experiences which will be used to measure and improve quality. You are at no time under any obligation to provide any of such data. Any and all information which is voluntarily submitted in feedback forms on the website or any survey that you take part in is used for the purposes of reviewing this feedback and improving the SmashTel software, and SmashTel and other Microsoft products and websites.

SmashTel may contact you to send you messages about faults and service issues. Further, SmashTel reserves the right to use email, or the SmashTel software to notify you of any eventual claims related to your use of SmashTel software, the SmashTel websites and/or SmashTel products, including without limitation claims of violation of third-party rights.

SmashTel may also use email or the SmashTel software to keep you up to date with news about the SmashTel software and SmashTel products that you have purchased and/or to inform you about other SmashTel products or other SmashTel related information. You can opt-out of the receipt of alerts and/or promotional emails by clicking the ‘unsubscribe' link on the email that you receive.

Access and Correction of Your Personal Data

You have the right to access and, where relevant, to amend your personal information. Some of your information may be viewed or edited online by signing into your account page on We will respond to requests to view, correct, complete or remove your personal information within a reasonable period of time and upon verification of your identity.

SmashTel will use all reasonable endeavors to accommodate requests to delete personal information unless it is required to be retained by law or for lawful business purposes.

SmashTel may reject requests that are unreasonably repetitive, require disproportionate technical effort (for example, developing a new system or fundamentally changing an existing practice), risk the privacy of others, or would be extremely impractical (for instance, requests concerning information residing on backup tapes).

Retention of Your Personal Data

SmashTel will retain your information for as long as is necessary to: (1) fulfill any of the purposes in Article 2 of this Privacy Policy, or (2) comply with applicable legislation, regulatory requests and relevant orders from competent courts. SmashTel will take appropriate technical and security measures to protect your information.

Customer Proprietary Network Information (CPNI)

As a telecommunications service provider, SmashTel has access to a unique and highly-regulated form of personal information – Customer Proprietary Network Information, or "CPNI." CPNI is simply the information generated in connection with the telecommunications services we provide to our customers. It includes call logs/details and certain information about customer rate plans and features. CPNI does not include customers’ names, addresses, or phone numbers. This information however, is also protected with care under our general privacy and security practices.

For legal reasons. We can disclose your CPNI for legal or regulatory reasons, including in response to subpoenas and court orders. CPNI can also be used to investigate fraud and to prevent violation of our terms of service and unlawful use of our network and services.

With your consent. If you contact us by phone, email, or live chat regarding your account or service, we will authenticate you before we access your account. This serves as your consent. This policy ensures that we do not release customer proprietary network information, such as account credentials, configuration, and call logs, to unauthorized parties.
