In specific geographical areas, HMD Global may provide phones that support PayJoy services. These phones have a theft protection feature and, separately, enable the user to join a financing plan via PayJoy app. When the user purchases a PayJoy enabled phone, HMD Global will collect user’s phone identification number (IMEI) every time the phone is turned on.
IMEI is processed for the following purposes:
for checking the enrollment status with PayJoy services connected to user’s phone;
for theft protection; and
for preventing fraud and tampering with the PayJoy app.
For these purposes, HMD Global can share the IMEI with PayJoy, the third-party service provider and app developer.
