Consent

How does Rogers obtain consent?

Your consent to the collection, use, or disclosure of personal information is obtained when you first sign-up to use the App. For more sensitive information, such as location information we will obtain additional consent when you download the app and log in for the first time.

Withdrawing Consent

The choice to provide Rogers with your consent is always yours, however, your decision to withhold such consent may limit your ability to interact with the app.

How & Why We Collect Personal Information

How does Rogers collect my personal information?

We primarily collect information about you, from you. We do this when you download or use one of our apps. For example, when you download and log on to an app we may collect your location information. In some cases, if you provide express consent, some of our apps will use your location even when you aren’t using the app to help monitor device or network issues. We will always seek your consent and you have the option to opt-out at any time. Like with any app that collects location information, via your mobile device settings you can decide what level of location information you want to disclose.

Why does Rogers collect my personal information?

Rogers collects personal information for many different reasons, including but not limited to the following:

  • To deliver you the products and services you have purchased from us, and to bill you, collect payment for those products and services, to allow you to download your bill, check your balance, make a payment or change your method of payment.
  • To provide you with information about the products and services you receive from Rogers. For example; to check your usage, add data, review your plan or package information, upgrade your plan or change your package, review your account contact information.
  • To give you access to help tools including customer support information, diagnostic tools such as Network Aid – which provides network status, and device ToolBox – which lets you analyze device health.
  • We only use your location to see how our mobile network is performing, determine where there are weak coverage areas and identify network outages even when you're not using the app if you have consented to it.
  • To perform analytics, reporting, request feedback to improve and manage our relationship with you.
  • To confirm or authenticate your identity and ensure your information is correct and up-to-date.
  • To provide tailored service to you. For example, we may use account information about you to improve your interactions with us or provide a positive and personalized customer experience.
  • To ensure compliance with our Terms of Service and Acceptable Use Policy.
  • To comply with legal obligations and regulatory requirements.

 

From time-to-time, information may also be collected for other purposes, or as permitted or required by law. We will always identify any additional purpose prior to, or at the time, of collection.

Disclosure

When is my personal information disclosed?

Unless we have your express consent or pursuant to a legal power, we will only disclose your personal information to organizations outside Rogers without your consent in the following limited circumstances:

  • To a person who, in our reasonable judgement, is seeking the information as your agent.
  • To another telephone company, when the information is required for the provision of home phone service and disclosure is made confidentially.
  • To a service provider or other agent retained by us, such as a credit reporting agency, for account management, the collection of past due bills on your account, or to evaluate your creditworthiness.
  • To a service provider or third party that is performing administrative functions for us to manage our customer accounts.
  • To another organization for fraud prevention, detection or investigation if seeking consent from you would compromise the investigation.
  • To a law enforcement agency whenever we have reasonable grounds to believe that you have knowingly supplied us with false or misleading information or are otherwise involved in unlawful activities.
  • To a public authority or agent of a public authority if it appears that there is imminent danger to life or property which could be avoided or minimized by disclosure of the information.
  • To a public authority or agent of a public authority, for emergency public alerting purposes, if a public authority has determined that there is an imminent or unfolding danger that threatens the life, health or security of an individual and that the danger could be avoided or minimized by disclosure of the information.
  • To a third party who may be interested in buying Rogers assets and personal customer information must be shared to assess the business transaction.
  • We will disclose information about your credit behaviour to credit reporting agencies or parties collecting outstanding debt.
  • Your personal information may also be shared with members or affiliates of the Rogers Communications Inc. organization such as Rogers Bank.

Storage, Security & Retention

The Rogers Chief Privacy Officer and delegates ensure that Rogers is responsible for all personal information of our customers and users of our apps. We ensure that there is a comparable level of protection for information that is processed for us by third parties.
