2. Reception and Collection of Information
It is necessary to collect some technical information (e.g. IP-address, device ID number etc.) from the user’s device so that the Services can be provided to the user.

CIAmedia reserves the right to use this collected data for statistics and user support without restrictions regarding applicability in time.
CIAmedia accesses and processes phone numbers of in, and outgoing calls, duration of calls, consumer’s location, device information, contacts lists and the user’s interactions with Advertising.

Whenever a user establishes a profile, mandatory information includes the user’s whole name (first and last name) and their mobile telephone number. Additional information may be provided by the user. The user may provide CIAmedia with information concerning their use of third party services (e.g. Google, Facebook etc).
