Asurion, ubreakifix by Asurion, Asurion Tech Repair & Solutions, or the term “us”, “we”, or “our” refers to the owner of this website and provider of the services. The term “you” refers to the user or viewer of this website or any of the services provided by Asurion. This page informs you of our policies regarding the collection, use, and disclosure of personal information we receive from you.
In order for our sites, products, and services (collectively “services”) to function properly, we need to collect and use some of your personal information. We want you to understand what personal information we collect and how it is used.
This notice does not cover, and we are not responsible for, third-party websites or applications that may be linked from our services; linking to them does not imply an endorsement. We are not responsible for these websites or applications or any information they may collect. You should always review the privacy notice of any third-party website or application that collects your personal information.
PERSONAL INFORMATION WE COLLECT
While using our services or visiting any of our stores, we may ask you to provide us with certain personal information. Personal information refers to information that is linked or linkable to you and may include the information listed below depending upon which of our services you choose to use.
As part of the process of visiting our websites or using our mobile applications, we may automatically collect your internet protocol address/location, information your internet browser or mobile device provides, and any information that is entered while visiting our website or using our mobile applications. By using the website or mobile application, you agree to the collection and use of information in accordance with this notice. Unless otherwise defined in this privacy notice, terms used have the same meanings as in our Terms and Conditions.
Asurion also automatically gathers and stores certain information in our server logs about the use of our services, including the number of unique visitors, the frequency of visits, how users interact with our services, user experience preferences, and other information that may help us improve the user experience, market our products, mitigate fraudulent activity, and comply with legal requirements. Such information may include personal information such as: IP address, Unique Device Identifier, content of web pages, transaction with APIs (Application Program Interface), transactions with IVR (Interactive Voice Response) systems, activity and content of visitor interaction with call center representatives; application usage activity, hardware information, hardware and system settings, browser type, browser language, the date and time of your request, or referral URL. Search queries may be saved and data later used to see which pages on the website garner the most attention from customers.
Cookies, Pixel Tags, and Using a Third-Party Account
A cookie is a small data file that is managed by your web browser or other application and stored on your local system. We use session and persistent cookies to, among other things, identify your device during a particular interaction and analyze your behavior during a particular visit. Most web browsers provide you with the ability to accept or decline cookies, as well as to be advised each time a cookie is being sent. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully use our services.
Pixel tags, also known as web beacons, help us better manage user experience and content tracking. They also help us engage users who have searched for, viewed, and/or purchased our services or similar services. Pixel tags are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, which provide a similar function to cookies and are used to track user interaction with content provided by us, an affiliate organization or a non-affiliated company to assist us in providing, maintaining and operating our marketing. In contrast to cookies, which are stored on a user's device hard drive, pixel tags are embedded within content. The small size and transparency of pixel tags are not intended to deceive content recipients, but rather minimize distraction.
Do Not Track
Do-Not-Track is a public-private initiative, https://www.w3.org/2011/tracking-protection/, that has developed a technical “flag” or signal that an end-user may be able to activate within their browser software to notify sites that they do not wish to be “tracked” by third parties as defined by the initiative. The initiative, however, has not reached a consensus as to exactly what technical or other actions those parties receiving the signal should take. As a result, Do-Not-Track has not yet been standardized and most sites, including our sites, do not alter their behavior or change their services when they receive a “do-not-track” flag or signal. You can, however, make decisions about your privacy and the advertisements you receive.
The methods for doing so vary from browser to browser, and from version to version. You can obtain up-to-date information about blocking and deleting cookies via these links:
Associations in the digital advertising ecosystem provide methods for specifically opting out of interest-based advertising, including the Digital Advertising Alliance click here and the YourOnlineChoices page click here.
Please note, however, that if you do decide to block cookies or similar technologies, some parts of our sites may not function correctly.
Using a Third-Party Account on our Services
If you use a third-party service (such as Google, Facebook, or other social media platforms) to create an account, we may receive personal information that you allow such third-party service to share with us such as your name, e-mail address, profile picture, or other personal information. The third-party service may also collect information about you that you have agreed to in their terms of service or privacy notice. Please check with the third-party service for more details.
In Person at a Store or Over the Phone
When Asurion provides you services, either remotely or in one of our stores, we may collect personal information from you, such as:
Cell phone number;
Electronic Serial Number ("ESN") or International Mobile Equipment Identity ("IMEI") data;
Device information, for example serial number or media access control ("MAC") address;
Records of products or services you have purchased from us;
Any information that you provide as part of purchasing our services, for example payment card information;
Video or audio recording in our stores, for example security cameras in certain locations where permitted by law
Services Performed at Your Home or Other Location
Please be aware that if you are receiving services at your home or other location, the service provider may be able to view anything visible to visitors in your home, which may include personal information.
For services such as technology consultations or in-home repairs, with your consent, the service provider may need to access your device to perform services requested by you such as changing settings, backing up your data, or provide technology set-up or advice.
If you are receiving a device repair as part of an insurance claim, the service provider may need to take photographs of your device to confirm that it is damaged and has been repaired. Be aware that any information displayed on your device or surrounding areas may be visible in the photo.
Other Personal Information
We may leverage external data sources in order to provide context and background on the users of our services in order to improve customer experience, mitigate fraud or malicious activity, or comply with internal company and external regulatory requirements.
We also draw inferences from the personal information we collect from you to potentially offer products or services that we believe would be a good fit for you (Note: at any time, you may choose to withdraw your consent to our use or disclosure of your personal information for marketing and promotional purposes by contacting us as outlined in the Where to Turn With Questions section of this privacy notice.)

We use commercially reasonable, industry standard technical, administrative, and physical controls to protect your personal information, including encryption where appropriate; however, since the internet is not a 100% secure environment, we cannot ensure the security of information during its transmission between you and us. Accordingly, you acknowledge that when you transmit such information, you do so at your own risk. We will notify you of any confirmed security breach of your personal information to the extent required by and in accordance with state and federal law.
