Did you receive a notice of change in your customer agreement?Â More importantly, did you READ IT?
Verizon Wireless plans on selling information on you, such as “quantity, technical configuration, type, destination, location and amount of services you purchase.”Â Together this is known as you “Customer Proprietary Network Information (CPNI).”
They are going to do this so that may “better serve your communications needs and to identify, offer and provide products and services.”Â In other words, so they can sell you more sh– errr… stuff.
Now even the FCC and other regulatory bodies realized how important it was to safeguard this information, and Verizon Wireless is required to do so by law.Â But now they are seeking your waiver so that they may use this information to sell you stuff from them, their parent companies, affiliates, partners, and anybody else they can profit from.Â They also however are using the standard sneaky ass backward “opt out” method of permission.
You have 30 days from the time the letter was sent to you to “opt out”Â and unless you do, Verizon Wireless “will assume that you give the Verizon Companies the right to share your CPNI”
In case you didn’t save the letter (or don’t feel like waiting for it to come), you can call 1-800-333-9956 and follow the recorded instructions to opt out.
