This information may be collected via account opening form or social media or federated login function (e.g. Facebook signup or Google and Microsoft login). Point Dume may use this Information internally for editorial and feedback purposes, marketing and promotional communications between Point Dume and customer, for statistical analysis and product development.
Geographic Location Information
When you use Point Dume’s RoamVU application or any other services on a mobile device (such as your smartphone, tablet or notebook computer), Point Dume may collect and track certain information that is derived from your usage of the Point Dume’s service, such as service activation and usage patterns as well as information about your geographic location. Point Dume uses this information to offer offline maps function and to assist you in finding suitable connectivity areas, dynamically manage our network connectivity platforms, improving overall service performance and RoamVU user experience. Such information is further used for statistical or business-related purposes and for designing improvements to our products and services. Individual geolocation information of identifiable end-user is never disclosed to any third parties, including end-user employers, unless requested in the course of legal and lawful investigation or by government and law enforcement authorities.
In order to continuously improve quality of our Services and user experience, Point Dume may gather demographic information about our customers. Demographic information seeks to gain insight on such things as how an individual became aware of our service, their gender, age group, occupation and travel preferences and practices. In addition, customer comments and inquiries are collected and stored for each customer that submits them. This information is collected and stored as a profile with the customer’s individual Point Dume account information. We may from time to time share aggregated demographic information with various business partners, however doing so in a completely anonymous way and removing all biographic data of the users such as first or last name, residential address, phone numbers etc.
From time to time Point Dume may offer incentive programs to RoamVU customers, visitors to the Web site (www.RoamVU.com), the general public and individuals identified through direct mail lists. These offerings are promoted on the Web site, advertisements and press releases. At a minimum, required information includes name and e-mail address; in some cases, the customer must answer mandatory survey questions about other personal data or enter a program code. The information gathered in the entry form is used to verify the entrant’s identity, to send the entrant an e-mail notification that their entry has been received, and to contact winners and/or prize recipients. Because the rules and terms of each program can vary, all information about each program is clearly posted during the event. All such programs are conducted in full accordance with United States federal and state laws.

- What are cookies?
Cookies are small data files that are commonly stored on your device when you browse and use websites and online services. They are widely used to make websites work, or to work more efficiently, as well as to provide reporting information and assist with service or advertising personalization.
Cookies are not the only types of technology that enable this functionality; we also use other, similar types of technologies. See below for more information and examples.
We and our Service Providers may use the following types of cookies:
- Performance and functionality cookies: These cookies are not essential, but help us to personalize and enhance your experience with RoamVU applications and other Point Dume services. For example, they help us to remember your preferences and prevent you from needing to re-enter information you previously provided (for example, during member sign up). We also use these cookies to collect information (such as popular pages, conversion rates, viewing patterns, click-through and other information) about our customers and visitors’ use of the Point Dume services so that we can enhance and personalize our application, website and service and conduct market research.
- Advertising cookies: These cookies use information about your visit to this and other websites, such as the pages you visit, your use of our service or your response to ads and emails, to deliver ads that are more relevant to you.
At this time neither RoamVU application nor our website use advertising cookie.
- How Does Point Dume use Web Beacons and other Technologies?
Web beacons (also known as clear gifs or pixel tags) often work in conjunction with cookies. Point Dume may use web beacons in the following ways:

- To measure where customers leave the signup process in order to improve customer experience.
