To correct or make changes to the personal data we have about you, applicants have several self-service options. Learn how to correct your personal data.

Authorized Agents

An authorized agent may submit an access, deletion, or correction request on your behalf. They should visit our Personal data request page and choose the category that best describes your relationship with T-Mobile.
To protect your data, we’ll ask you to verify your own identity before we fulfill the request submitted by the agent. All communications will be sent directly to you, the employee or contractor, and not the agent.

Sometimes we can’t comply with your request. When that happens, residents of certain states are entitled to submit an appeal. Instructions for how to submit your appeal will be included in our response explaining why we couldn’t comply. 

If you have questions about these choices, please read our privacy FAQs.

Do Not Sell or Share

We do not sell (or "share," as defined by California law) your personal data covered by this notice. However, we do use third-party services on certain careers web pages to send you relevant career ads and perform analytics about our candidate outreach efforts. That means we "sell" or "share" your personal data as defined under certain privacy laws. T-Mobile doesn’t knowingly sell or share the personal data of children under 16.

For more information, read our Do Not Sell or Share article. T-Mobile doesn’t knowingly sell or share the personal data of children under 16. Don’t want your data sold or shared? Set your Do Not Sell or Share preference in our Privacy Dashboard or click the link in our website footers or apps.

Limit use and disclosure of sensitive personal information

In certain jurisdictions, where we use or disclose sensitive personal data to infer individual characteristics or for purposes other than those described by applicable law, you have a right to limit our use and disclosure of sensitive personal information for any purposes other than to assess your personal data in connection with our recruiting and hiring practices or as otherwise permitted by law.

We do not use or disclose sensitive personal data to infer individual characteristics or for additional purposes.


In certain jurisdictions, you have a right not to be discriminated against for exercising these rights set out in applicable law.

Communications preferences

You can choose whether to receive optional communications from us by email, SMS, and telephone related to new jobs or roles that become available. If you receive these optional email or SMS messages from us and would like to stop, you can do so by following the directions in that message or by contacting us as described in the “Contact Us” section below. If you receive a message from us related to new jobs or roles that become available, and no longer wish to receive such messages, you can opt out of these future communications. These choices do not apply to certain informational communications, including communications about an existing application with us. 

Targeted advertising

You can get instructions on how to opt-out of targeted ads served by most advertising networks that use cookies, Ad IDs, and similar technology by:

You can also take steps to manage targeted ads through your system settings. Resetting your device’s mobile advertising ID does not opt-out your device from targeted ads, but data associated with your prior mobile advertising ID will not be linked to your new identifier through the device. Also, if you reset your device’s mobile advertising ID your prior opt-out choices will not apply to the new ID. To maintain your opt-out choices, you’ll need to opt-out again. These opt-outs do not impact “contextual” advertisements (e.g., a sporting goods advertisement on a sports-themed website) or ads we place on our own websites and apps based on your activity on those sites and apps.

Browser or platform controls

Cookie controls

Most web browsers are set to accept cookies by default. If you prefer, you can go to your browser settings to learn how to delete or reject cookies. If you choose to delete or reject cookies, this could affect certain features or services of our website. If you choose to delete cookies, settings, and preferences controlled by those cookies, including advertising preferences, may be deleted and need to be recreated.

Global Privacy Control

Some browsers and browser extensions support the “Global Privacy Control” (GPC) or similar controls that can send a signal to the websites you visit indicating your choice to opt-out from certain types of data processing, including data sales and/or targeted advertising, as specified by applicable law. When we detect such a signal, we make reasonable efforts to respect your choices indicated by a GPC setting or similar control recognized by regulation or otherwise widely acknowledged as a valid opt-out preference signal.

Do Not Track

Some browsers include a "Do Not Track" (DNT) setting that can send a signal to the websites you visit, indicating you do not wish to be tracked. Unlike the GPC described above, there is no common understanding of how to interpret the DNT signal; therefore, our websites do not respond to browser DNT signals. Instead, you can use the range of other tools to control data collection and use, including the GPC, cookie controls, and advertising controls described above.

Mobile advertising ID controls

iOS and Android operating systems provide options to limit tracking.

Email web beacons

Most email clients have settings that allow you to prevent the automatic downloading of images, including web beacons, which avoid the automatic connection to the web servers that host those images. 

Notice and consent

We provide applicants with a notice about the personal data we collect, how we use personal data, and with whom we disclose personal data.

We get consent from applicants for the collection and use of personal data where such consent is required by applicable law. Failure to provide necessary personal data may disqualify an applicant from employment or restrict participation in certain plans or programs.

Future changes

From time to time, we may update this notice to reflect changes required by law or our privacy practices or procedures. When we make material changes to this notice, we’ll let you know by updating this notice and the date at the top of this page.
