Information collected during registration

CarrierConnect is primarily a business marketplace. Although some of the features of the CarrierConnect website are available to anonymous users, users who wish to take full advantage of the CarrierConnect online trading floors must register, and then be authorized by CarrierConnect, before trading or accessing more detailed information.

The very first time you register for any CarrierConnect service, we ask you a set of questions about yourself. These are designed to help CarrierConnect staff decide whether to grant access to our services. It also includes basic phone and e-mail contact details.

The initial step in registration involves the user supplying an e-mail address. This address is verified by sending an e-mail containing a link on which the user must click to continue the registration process. Then we collect the following mandatory information:

  • First Name and Last Name
  • Company
  • Job title
  • Telephone numbe

As part of this initial process we ask the user to select preferences these include:

  • Preferred password

CarrierConnect uses the information captured to ensure that only legitimate users are approved for entry and to research the type of companies and business which are interested in trading or finding information on telecommunications capacity pricing.

Account managers may also use the contact information from the registration forms to contact the user when necessary. We do not resell data containing personal information to other companies.

Changing preferences and updating contact information.
