The Communications Act and CPNI
- Section 222 of the Communications Act of 1934, as amended (the “Communications Act”), provides additional privacy protections for information about the quantity, technical configuration, type, destination, location, and amount of your use of telecommunications services and the information about those services contained on your bills for those Services. This information is known as customer proprietary network information or “CPNI.” CPNI does not include your name, address, or telephone number, which is defined by the Communications Act as “subscriber list information.” However, that information is otherwise considered personally identifiable information.
- If you are a customer of Mediacom phone Service, or another Service that is subject to these requirements, you have the right, and Mediacom has a duty, under the Communications Act and other applicable laws, to protect the confidentiality of your CPNI.
- If you make a written request for a copy of your CPNI, we will disclose the relevant information we have to the address we have for your account, or to any person authorized by you, if we reasonably believe the request is valid. For access to your CPNI by telephone or online, we require that you first authenticate your identity using a password or passcode. We do not generally provide our customers with records of calls received, records that are only in our archives, other records that we do not furnish as part of a telephone bill or any other information that we do not create or maintain in the ordinary course of business unless there is a court order or similar legal process requiring such disclosure.

Further, we may have no control over information appearing in the directory lists or directory assistance services of directory publishers or directory assistance providers that are not owned by us.

If you opt-out of interest-based ads, you will still see ads on websites you visit, but those ads will not be based on your browsing behavior. Some browsers have a 'do not track' feature that lets you tell websites that you do not want to have your online activities tracked. These features are not yet uniform, so our Site is not currently designed to respond to those signals. Please note that opting-out of advertising networks services does not mean that you will not receive advertising while using our Sites or on other websites, nor will it prevent the receipt of interest-based advertising from third parties that do not participate in these programs. It will, however, exclude you from interest-based advertising conducted through participating networks, as provided by their policies and choice mechanisms.

If you subscribe to certain Services, we would like to use the CPNI information we have on file to provide you with information about products and services or special promotions for other communications-related products and services to which you do not already subscribe. You have the right to restrict this use of CPNI. If you deny or restrict your approval for us to use your CPNI, you will experience no effect, now or in the future, on how we provide any services to which you subscribe.

How a California Consumer Can Exercise their CCPA Rights
To exercise the rights described above, please submit a consumer request to us by either:
- Calling us at 833-998-1824.
- Visiting https://support.mediacomcable.com/ccpa
Consumers may only make a consumer request (of each type) twice within a 12-month period. The consumer request must:
- Provide sufficient information to allow us to reasonably verify that the consumer is the person about whom we collected personal information or an authorized representative.
- In verifying identity, if the consumer is a Mediacom customer, Mediacom will match the identifying information provided by the consumer to the personal information Mediacom maintains on the consumer’s Mediacom account. If the consumer is not a Mediacom customer, Mediacom will use a third-party identity verification service which will ask the consumer a series of questions to verify the consumer’s identity. Mediacom requires that at least three (3) of the five (5) questions are answered correctly to meet a reasonably high degree of certainty that the consumer is the consumer whose personal information may be accessed, corrected or deleted.
- Indicate your request so that Mediacom can properly understand, evaluate, and respond to it (for example, is the request to know, correct or delete personal information).
We cannot respond to your request if we cannot verify your identity or authority to make the request and confirm that the personal information relates to you. If you are making a request on behalf of a California consumer, please download the following two forms and follow the instructions on each form:
- CCPA California Consumer Permission to Authorized Agent
- CCPA California Consumer Request by Authorized Agent.
Consumers are not required to create an online account with Mediacom to make a consumer request.
We will only use personal information provided in a consumer request to verify the requestor’s identity or authority to make the request.
We endeavor to respond to a consumer request within forty-five (45) days of its receipt. If we require more time, we will inform the consumer of the reason and extension period in writing.
Consumers may choose to have our written response delivered by mail or electronically (via email). Consumers who are Mediacom customers will receive our written response in their Mediacom “MY ACCOUNT” if the customer has one, or by mail or electronically, at the consumer’s option.
Mediacom reserves the right to charge a fee to process or respond to a consumer request if it is excessive, repetitive, or manifestly unfounded. If we determine that the request warrants a fee, we inform the consumer why we made that decision and provide the consumer with a cost estimate before completing the request.
