In order to provide reliable, high-quality service to you, we keep regular business records containing information that you provide such as your name, address, email address, telephone number, identifying information, financial information and other similar information. We collect and maintain information about your account such as billing, payment and deposit history, maintenance and complaint information, and the Service options you have chosen. We may maintain records of research concerning User satisfaction and viewing habits which may be obtained from interviews and questionnaires.

Even if such electronic information is stored in, contained on, or transmitted over property, equipment or facilities of Fort Collins Connexion, Fort Collins Connexion shall not have any responsibility, control, oversight, ownership, or other interest in such information, provided that, Fort Collins Connexion may delete such information as provided in the applicable Services Agreement and other policies that are applicable to the Services. Users are and shall remain solely responsible for such electronic information.

In addition, personally identifiable information about you will sometimes be disclosed to others (such as our employees, contractors, and agents for internal business purposes), as well as outside auditors, professional advisors, service providers, potential business partners, regulators, and franchise authorities, with or without your written consent, if necessary to render the Services or to conduct a legitimate business activity related to the Services.

RETENTION OF INFORMATION
SPECIAL NOTICE CONCERNING CUSTOMER PROPRIETARY NETWORK INFORMATION
In addition to the provisions of this Privacy Notice, federal law protects your privacy rights as a customer of Fort Collins Connexion’s phone Service. These rights are in addition to the existing safeguards that Fort Collins Connexion already has in place to protect your privacy rights. The Federal Communications Commission requires Fort Collins Connexion to notify you of your right to restrict the use of your Customer Proprietary Network Information (“CPNI”).
What is CPNI? CPNI is personally identifiable information that a telecommunications carrier collects when providing phone services to a customer. CPNI typically consists of the type of telephone Service, telephone numbers you have called, call duration and timing of those calls, as well as call frequency and any call management services you use.
Permitted Use of CPNI by a Telephone Company Without Your Permission - Fort Collins Connexion may use CPNI for certain purposes without your permission, including internal marketing and communication-related services. Fort Collins Connexion may also use CPNI to respond to your inquiry regarding Services you currently use, or related services offered. In addition, we may use CPNI for billing and collections, repair and maintenance and to protect our property and to prevent fraud. FC Connexion does not provide CPNI to unaffiliated third parties without customers’ written request. Any approval or written request for the use of CPNI is valid until you affirmatively revoke or limit such approval or denial. A subsequent denial or withdrawal of your approval will not affect the Services to which you subscribe.
Additional Information Regarding Your CPNI Rights - You have the right to deny or withdraw access to CPNI at any time or to instruct us to disclose CPNI to unaffiliated third parties by written request. Any approval or denial for the use of CPNI is valid until you affirmatively revoke or limit such approval or denial. A subsequent denial or withdrawal of your approval will not affect the Services to which you subscribe.
Fort Collins Connexion reserves the right to modify this Privacy Notice at any time. We will notify you of any material changes via written, electronic, or other means permitted by law. If you find the changes unacceptable, you have the right to cancel the Services. If you continue to use the Services after receiving notice of such changes, we will consider that as your acceptance of the changes.
