2) Personal data collected by ULT Inc.
A display/nick name
- The user is asked for a display name or nick name while availing the phone call or conference call feature.
Why we collect This information is used to attach a name to the account that the user creates with our system if they want to use the calling features. This information is stored on our secure servers and never shared with anyone outside the ULT system.
Mobile phone number
We take the phone number from the users only when they want to use the phone call or conference call feature.
This information is required to make the calling system more robust. Each user is uniquely identified by our system using their mobile phone number. This is also used to establish the authenticity of the user and keep spammers away from the system. This information is stored on our secure server and never shared with anyone outside the ULT system. This information is only collected if the user wants to use the calling features.
Contacts and phone book
The ULT Inc apps needs access to users’ phone book only if they want to take advantage of the phone call or conference call feature.
ULT checks the user’s phonebook and matches it against its global database of users in order to come up with a list of other users present in your phone book and who are also using the calling features of ULT. Such a list is stored on our secure servers and is never shared with anyone outside the ULT system. This information is only collected if the user wants to use the calling features of ULT.
Voice using microphone
The user’s voice is taken as input using the microphone. The user is asked to provide permission to use the microphone before the microphone can be used for the first time. The microphone is turned on only when the user wishes to perform a translation or make a phone/conference call and turned off on user’s action. Our apps never turn on the microphone automatically to take users voice as input.
User’s voice is required as input for translation service. We never store your voice in our apps or servers.
Words spoken by the user
User’s voice is converted to text whenever required. Such text is stored inside a database on the user’s phone. In addition to this, the translated audio is stored in a permanent storage on the user’s phone. Before storing such files, the user is asked for his/her consent to allow using the storage of the phone.
User’s speech is converted to text whenever required to facilitate translation. The user can share the translated audio with others when using social media sharing apps. ULT apps never share the translated audio with anyone without explicit user action.

ULT Inc is committed to protect your personal information.

In such a case, all the data collected for the calling feature will be deleted from the user’s phone and also from our secure servers.
