There are several ways in which Boost Mobile collects personal and other information about you. Personal information is information that identifies or is associated with a specific person, such as a name, address, telephone number, e-mail address, or information about activities directly linked to that person.
If we have trouble processing your order, the contact information you provide is used to get in touch with you. We also use this contact information to provide you with updates regarding your current phone or service and to provide you with information about Boost Mobile promotions and special offers.
Boost Mobile may offer the opportunity to participate in contests, giveaways, or other similar promotions we sponsor. Except as explained otherwise in the rules for a particular contest, giveaway, or promotion, any personal information you provide will be used in accordance with this Policy.
Information we automatically collect: We automatically receive certain types of information whenever you use our Services.

Separately, the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (CCPA) gives California consumers the right to know what Personal Information is collected about them, and how it will be used, disclosed, and sold. The CCPA also gives California consumers the right to request access to and deletion of their personal information, and the right to request that their personal information not be sold, and the right not to be discriminated against after exercising privacy rights.
The purpose of this notice is to provide consumers with a description of our practices regarding the collection, use, disclosure, and sale of Personal Information and instructions for submitting CCPA data privacy requests.
We have collected the following categories of Personal Information about California consumers in the preceding 12 months.

We collect the Personal Information identified in the chart above from the following categories of sources:
In addition to the primary purposes of collection noted above, we may generally use the categories of information noted above as follows:
We may combine the Personal Information we collect for the above purposes. We will not collect additional categories of Personal Information, nor use the Personal Information collected for additional purposes, without providing you notice.
The CCPA defines “sale” very broadly to include sharing or disclosing of personal information with a third party for monetary or other valuable consideration. There are a number of circumstances where we are allowed to share personal information with third parties which are not considered to be a sale. For example, we may share personal information with service providers who work on our behalf if the service provider agrees not to use that personal information for other purposes. In addition, you may intentionally direct us to share information with a third-party, which is also not a sale.
Currently we have one program, which would be considered a sale under the CCPA. This program does not directly identify you but allows a third party to aggregate the data and issue de-identified marketing and analytics reports. If you do not wish for us to use your information to produce de-identified and aggregated data sets in the reports we share with third parties, you may opt out at any time. Take a look at our Reporting & Analytics Program Policy for details.
We may share the Personal Information identified in the chart above with the following categories of third parties:
Boost Mobile does not sell Personal Information of minors under 16 years of age (as defined by the CCPA).
To submit a request for access, deletion, or opt-out, please complete the online request form by visiting www.sprint.com/en/ccpaportal.html or 1-866-441-7445.
To process your request for access or deletion, we must be able to verify your identity to a reasonable degree of certainty. In order to do so, you must provide the required identifying information when completing the online request form or making a request through one of our customer service agents. We will ask you to provide your contact information and an additional identifier based on your relationship with us. Before we process your request, we will match these data points with data points we currently maintain to verify your identity and your relationship with us.
Please note that we may not be required to delete information under certain circumstances. For example, the CCPA includes exemptions that provide that we do not have to delete data that for example, is necessary to complete a transaction, detect security incidents, or for certain other internal purposes.
You can designate an authorized agent to make a request to know, delete, or opt-out on your behalf. When you use an authorized agent to submit a request for access or deletion, you must provide the authorized agent with written permission to do so, and, in certain circumstances, we may ask you to verify your own identity directly with us. We may deny a request from an authorized agent that does not submit proof that they have been authorized by you to act on your behalf.-Back to Top
