NORTHAMPTON, Mass. (WWLP) – You may want to read the fine print on those phone bills you get.
As part of contractual agreements, phone companies can alter the way they use your information if you are given proper notice. And proper notice includes mailing you changes in your bill.
Some Verizon customers recently received such notification saying they may choose NOT to have their CPNI-Customer Proprietary Network Information used for marketing purposes. But you must call them.
Abigail Western of New York City told 22News, “I actually should. My husband takes care of the bill so hopefully he looks, but yea I heard they can be pretty sneaky and got to pay closer attention to the bill each month.”
In the recent Verizon notice it says that opting out of having them use your information for marketing it doesn’t affect your service.
