Consumers’ Privacy Remains Protected Under Existing Laws

Tags:

At AT&T, our privacy commitments are fundamental to the way we do business every day. We have long been committed to a clear and transparent approach to ensuring that the privacy rights of our customers are protected. The recent Congressional action had zero effect on the privacy protections afforded to consumers.

Our commitment is clearly stated on our website — att.com/privacy — and includes the following principles:

Bullet point

We safeguard our customers’ data, using encryption and other security techniques to protect it.

Bullet point

Health, financial and children’s data are further protected under additional federal laws that remain fully in force.

Bullet point

Our Privacy Policy explains what information we collect, how we use it, and with whom we share it. The policy is written in plain language and is easily accessible on our website.

Bullet point

We give our customers choices about how we use their personal information for marketing purposes. Customers are in control.

AT&T and every other major internet service provider has also committed to additional legally enforceable privacy principles, which are consistent with the privacy framework developed by the FTC.
