HOW WE USE YOUR INFORMATION
We use the information we collect from or about you to provide the Services to you, improve those Services, customize the Services to your preferences, market and advertise the Services to you and others, troubleshoot the Services, secure the Services, and respond to requests from governmental entities or law enforcement agencies. We may use information about you for additional purposes, but only if we obtain your consent to do so.
- To provide and manage our Services: We may use information about you to provide the Services you requested, send you bills and invoices, provide technical support, authenticate access to your account, help with upgrades, detect and protect against fraud and the unauthorized use of our Services, provide you with personalized content, process and respond to your inquiries, administer disputes, and enforce our legal rights, including your agreement(s) to receive the Services. Additionally, we may ask you for feedback about our Services’ performance, customer care service, and maintenance and operations. As permitted by applicable law, we may monitor and record our communications with you, including emails, chats, and calls, for training purposes, quality assurance, and to record details about the Services you order from us.
- To enhance our Services:
- We may use audience measurement and other demographic data about you to improve our Services and make programming and advertising more relevant to you. We may also use this information to distribute and deliver relevant programming and advertising to you.
- Viewership information may be used to determine which shows are most popular, how many people watch a program to its conclusion, and whether people are watching commercials. An analysis of this information helps improve our cable television service and other Services and makes programming and advertising more relevant to our subscribers; it also allows us to distribute and deliver relevant programming and advertising to you without disclosing personally identifiable information about you to programmers or advertisers.
- Activity data may be used to help us learn how popular certain programs are and how our customers as a whole generally prefer to view certain kinds of programming using cable television service, including whether they like to watch certain programs live, on-demand, on mobile devices, or online. This may require us to compare or combine activity data on our cable system with online activity data.
- To customize our Services:
- This enables us to personalize your settings on our products and Services so that you don’t have to change these settings each time you use them.
- We may use location data to identify which of our systems provides services to you to provide relevant information related to our Services in your area.
- For marketing and advertising: We may use information about you to deliver our and third parties’ advertisements to you on our properties or on third parties’ websites and apps, measure the effectiveness of our advertising, provide you with content recommendations, and send you promotions and offers. We may also use activity data to determine whether promoting content and services in certain ways helps attract a larger audience and more customers. We may compare or combine information, such as activity data, we receive when you use cable television services to view content or advertising with information about your use of content and advertising that we deliver on other platforms, such as DVR devices, Websites, and apps. We do this to better understand how our customers access and use our products and services in all of the places that we offer them.
- For troubleshooting: We may collect activity data associated with particular devices, such as set-top boxes, portable devices, and other supported devices, so we know where to deliver the Services and how to troubleshoot them.
- To maintain the security of our systems: We may use information about you to protect and secure our Services, assets, network, and business operations and to detect, investigate, and prevent activities that may violate our policies or be fraudulent or illegal. We may use automated processes to scan incoming and outgoing email messages to, for example, identify and filter out likely spam or harmful messages. We do not read or disclose to third parties the content of your email messages or other online communications unless we are compelled by law or legal process to do so.
- For legal compliance: We may use information about you to comply with legal processes, such as warrants, subpoenas, court orders, and lawful regulatory or law enforcement requests, and to comply with applicable legal requirements.
HOW WE SHARE YOUR INFORMATION
We may share any of the information we collect from or about you when you direct us to do so, if necessary, to provide the Services to you, to respond to legal process, and to protect our property and the safety of our employees.

In some instances where there are valid legal requests or orders for disclosure of your information, we may notify you of the requests or orders and then it may be up to you to object or take specific action to prevent any disclosures pursuant to those requests or orders. Law enforcement agencies may, with the appropriate legal document/order, and without notice to you, obtain the right to install a device that monitors your internet and email use, including addresses of email sent and received and, in some cases, the content of those communications, and/or your use of our telephone service, including listings of incoming and outgoing calls and in some cases the content of those calls.
- Sale, Merger or Acquisition: We may change our ownership or corporate organization while providing the Services. We may transfer to another entity or its affiliates or service providers some or all information about you in connection with or during negotiations of any merger, acquisition, sale of assets or any line of business, change in ownership control, or financing transaction. We cannot guarantee that an acquiring party or the merged entity will have the same privacy practices or treat your information as described in this Policy.
- Child Exploitation and Human Trafficking: We are required by law to report any evidence we may have or become aware of relating to violations of laws concerning child exploitation and/or human trafficking.
HOW DO WE PROTECT YOUR INFORMATION
We use administrative, technical, and physical safeguards to protect your privacy and have taken key steps to protect your information, including but not limited to, establishing technological and organizational security controls to protect your information.
