Providing transparency and choice
We’re a company that transforms how people, businesses and things connect with one another, and we understand that the success of our products and services depends on customers' trusting that their privacy is protected and their choices are respected.
Our goal is to provide clear and transparent communication about the information we collect and how we use it. We are also committed to providing our customers with choices. Protecting the privacy and security of customer information is a responsibility we take seriously.
As we bring new products and services to market or expand our offerings through acquisitions, we examine the relevant privacy and security questions, and take appropriate steps to continue to provide our customers with strong and meaningful privacy and security protections.
Verizon was the first in the telecom industry to issue a Transparency Report that provides detail on subpoenas, court orders and other official requests for information. Report updates are issued every six months. To learn more about how we handle government requests for customer information, both in the U.S. and internationally, please see our most recent reports here.
