AT&T rewrites rules: Your data isn't yours
The new policy says that AT&T - not customers - owns customers' confidential info and can use it "to protect its legitimate business interests, safeguard others, or respond to legal process."
The policy also indicates that AT&T will track the viewing habits of customers of its new video service - something that cable and satellite providers are prohibited from doing.
This is disturbing to me, as an AT&T via SBC via Pac Bell customer. I'm in the market for a cell provider, and was in the process of choosing between AT&T (Cingular) and Verizon. I think I'll go with Verizon.
AT&T Wireless separated from AT&T, then merged with Cingular and was no more. Did AT&T buy Cingular now?Post a Comment
