Aristotle Unified Communications Privacy Policy

Aristotle Unified Communications (Aristotle) protects the privacy of our clients, customers, and visitors. Aristotle gathers information both passively and actively, but DOES NOT sell or share any received information to third party companies with the exception of our technical support team who can acess only client information required to assist with technical questions.

At the time of a service purchase, Aristotle will require personal information from the customer, including name, mailing address, service address (if different from mailing address), date of birth, social security information, credit card information, email address, and additional information needed for billing purposes. Aristotle does generate GPS coordinates for our Fixed Wireless customers only. All information is secured within software databases with controlled limited access.

Basic customer information may be used to file FCC mandatory reports, which include census tract and block data determined by address, subscribed speeds, and if a resident or business.

Aristotle reserves the right to use personal information to resolve billing issues, including Collections, and service issues. Aristotle will send connectivity customers marketing materials about new service opportunities, including increased speed. Materials may be in the form of both email and mailers. Customers will have the ability to opt-out of one or both marketing avenues. Aristotle will also announce potential and scheduled outages along with service issues that are not limited to any one particular customer. Aristotle does not knowingly collect, solicit or use personal information from anyone under the age of 18. If a customer is under age 18, please do not attempt to register for services or send any personal information to Aristotle. If Aristotle learns that personal information has been gathered from a child under the age of 18, Aristotle will delete that information as quickly as possible to the extent technically feasible. If a customer believes that his/her child under age 18 may have provided Aristotle with personal information, please contact Aristotle at Additionally, Aristotle will not troubleshoot connectivity issues or discuss information about the customer’s account with anyone under the age of 18.

When a customer uses Aristotle’s connectivity, any information a customer sends and receives is transmitted over a fixed wireless network and may be subject to interception by unauthorized third parties who seek to harm. While it is Aristotle’s objective to take reasonable measures to reduce the risk that unauthorized third parties will be able to intercept the information a customer sends and receives through the service, Aristotle cannot and does not make any guarantee that transmissions over the Internet are 100% secure or error-free.

Aristotle recommends that customers use caution when sending any information over the Internet and use encryption technology whenever possible, such as websites that have the “https” designation in the website’s address bar and that show a padlock incon in the browser’s window.

Aristotle does not collect any information about customer activity on the Internet. All customers are subject to Aristotle’s Terms of Use.

Management connections to servers are always authenticated and encrypted via Secure Shell (SSH) when administration access is required for troubleshooting, patch management, and upgrades.

Calix runs automated vulnerability scanning on all perimeter systems to identify potential security risks. Scanning applications are regularly updated to remain current and up to date on important security vulnerabilities. Patches are applied to all relevant systems unless a compensating control is implemented.

Calix uses a variety of industry-standard security technologies and best practices to help protect information from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. All data stored on the Calix systems is encrypted following industry standards using the strongest keys and ciphers. All communications with the App are protected with industry standard security protocols.
