Verizon Wireless Privacy AssaultSubmitted by thechknhwk on Thu, 11/15/2012 - 14:46
I received a letter the other day from Verizon Wireless, and I opened it today to read that they will be disclosing CPNI information unless you opt out of it. It looks like a piece of junk mail but I feel it is important that you read it and visit the opt out link @ www.vzw.com/myprivacy and opt out.
Below is a detail of the info they will share if you do not opt out.
As a provider of certain telecommunications services, Verizon Wireless collects certain information that is made available to us solely by virtue of our relationship with you, such as quantity, technical configuration, type, destination, location and amount of use of the telecommunications services you purchase. This information and related billing information is known as Customer Proprietary Network Information (CPNI). The Federal Communications Commission and other regulators require the Verizon Companies to protect your CPNI.
Verizon Wireless shares information among our affiliates and parent companies (including Vodafone) and their subsidiaries unless you advise us not to. Sharing this information allows us to provide you with the latest information about our products and services and to offer you our latest promotions.
