Privacy Statement



In the normal course of providing your telephone service, Citizens Telephone Corporation maintains certain information about your account. This information, when matched to your name, address and calling or originating billing telephone number, is known as your customer specific "Customer Proprietary Network Information," or CPNI for short. Examples include the type of line you have, service features like Touch Tone and Caller ID, class of service, telephone charges, long-distance and local service billing records, directory assistance charges, and historical call records and patterns. Some service providers, elected by you, offering additional telecommunication services, such as INTRA/INTER LATA long-distance providers and Internet call-forwarding services, may have customer information and historical call data. You should consult the third party vendor's CPNI policy for information on their use, privacy, and your rights, of your CPNI.

Currently, Citizens Telephone Corporation does not market additional services, nor do we sell customer information to any third party. However, we reserve the right, afforded by law, to use your CPNI to market additional telephone services to you in the future, such as enhanced features and long distance services that we have available. The Federal Communications Commission has adopted rules staging that telecommunications related services or features to you if you have requested that the CPNI be considered "restricted/opt-out" for this purpose. If you wish to have your CPNI "restricted/opt-out, " call the Citizens Telephone Corporation office at (260) 375-2111. Tell us that you wish to restrict our use of your customer note that restricting your CPNI will not eliminate all of our marketing contacts with CPNI. Also, we are permitted to use your CPNI to contact you about additional local telephone and other services when we already provide you that same type service. Finally, even if your CPNI is restricted, we may still use it to market any other telecommunications services or features with your permission or if you contact us and ask about them.
