According to an article in the New York Times, written by LIDIJA DAVIS, Verizon is back at the courts trying to take the privacy of their customers. If you have not done it already, call customer service and insist that your privacy is NOT SHARED. There are two kinds of groups they claim to share with – internal affiliates and third party groups. This means that Insurance companies, brokerages, banks and other groups will sell your information and share it if you do not opt-out.
It is very important that you actually make sure they do not LIMIT informaiton sharing, but in fact STOP information sharing. Here is the webpage to contact them. Here is verizon’s website policy to opt out of their web cookie information sharing, as well.
