INFORMATION SHARED WITH THE Telecommunication Relay Service (TRS) User Registration Database


Following the regulations set out by the FCC (FCC regulation 64.611), we collect the following information: Full name; address; ten-digit telephone number assigned in the TRS numbering directory; last four digits of the social security number or Tribal Identification number, if the registered internet-based TRS user is a member of a Tribal nation and does not have a social security number; date of birth; Registered Location; TRS provider name and dates of service initiation and termination; a digital copy of the user's self-certification of eligibility for TRS and the date obtained by the provider; the date on which the user's identification was verified; and (for existing users only) the date on which the registered internet-based TRS user last placed a point-to-point or relay call.  We may ask to collect proof of your eligibility for IP CTS use in the form of further documentation such as a driver license, passport, etc.

The information listed above will be transmitted to the TRS User Registration Database to ensure proper administration of the TRS program, and failure to provide consent will result in the registered internet-based TRS user being denied service.

CaptionMate takes the protection of your information seriously and takes reasonable physical, administrative, and technical measures to protect your information from unauthorized access or against loss, misuse or alteration by third parties. Although we make good faith efforts to store the information collected on the Service in a secure operating environment that is not available to the public, we cannot guarantee the absolute security of that information during its transmission or its storage on our systems.

We do not warrant or represent that your information will be protected against, loss, misuse, or alteration by third parties.

We will also retain and use your information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements. We do not permanently store your speech or that of other parties on your phone calls, or the transcription of such speech. We temporarily store information on servers located in the United States via third parties as well as on our own servers. We collect this information only to transcribe the speech into text, and then it is discarded by us and the third party server providers. The speech engine that we use to create the transcriptions also does not permanently store your speech or that of other parties on your phone calls, or the transcription of such speech.
