Kids’ Privacy Setting - Kids’ Lines
T‑Mobile is currently testing the ability for parents and guardians to designate a line as a “Kid's Line.” This feature enables parents to tell us that a line on their account is used by a child under the age of 16. We won’t use data from designated Kids’ Lines for advertising, and we’ll opt the line out of receiving marketing communications from T‑Mobile.
This feature is currently only available to T‑Mobile customers, but we’re working hard to expand access to all customers soon. In the meantime, customers can opt-out of the use of their data for advertising at any time through their account settings. We also have applied the opt-out to Project 10 Million, discussed further below.
We collect the following data from Kids‘ Lines:
- Geolocation Data – we collect data that tells us the location of your child’s mobile device.
- Unique Identifiers – we collect device and network identifiers – basically, ways for us to tell which mobile device on our network is your child’s.
- Age – we collect your child’s birth month and year so that we can tell when your child turns 16 and can change the line back to a regular wireless line.
- Customer Proprietary Network Information (“CPNI”) generated by your child’s use of our wireless voice communications services. See the CPNI article for more information.
- Information from your child’s use of our products, services, and network (and other carriers’ networks when roaming domestically or internationally) like usage of connecting carriers and Internet service providers, the Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, text messages, and data use history, content interactions (e.g., how long you use an app), language settings, and other network and device analytics and Wi-Fi connection and usage data.
- Device and service performance and diagnostic information – this includes reports from your child’s device about signal strength, speeds, app and service performance, dropped calls, call and data failures, geolocation information, and device data.
- Audio information, including voice commands your child provides to our apps (for example, for accessibility or hands-free use).
