Armstrong's more than 60 years track record of putting safety and privacy first will not be impacted by recent Congressional action. The recent repeal of the FCC's "Protecting the Privacy of Customers of Broadband and Other Telecommunications Services" rule will result in no changes to existing policies and use of customer information. Despite the FCC rule never having gone into effect, Armstrong's policies already meet the underlying intent of the law.
Misinterpretation of both the existing rules and the repeal of the yet-to-be-deployed rules had spread common fear that Internet Service Providers were not allowed to sell sensitive customer data without consent. Armstrong reaffirms its commitment to privacy and asserts these fears to be unfounded. We respect and protect customer online information that includes banking, health, vehicle, utilities and children's data as well as individual web browsing data. This sensitive information has never been used, shared or sold to third-party companies and there are no plans to do so.
With this commitment for privacy, you will consistently receive opt-in consent for the use of non-sensitive data to receive targeted communication from Armstrong. The ability to opt-out will always be made available.
Armstrong's goal is to continue protecting your privacy and earning the trust of customers by ensuring the confidentiality and security of personal information.
