In order to better serve your communications needs and to identify, offer and provide products and services to meet your requirements, we need your permission to use your contact information in order to communicate regarding updates that relate to your telephone service or products or services related to your telephone service. The protection of your information is important to us, and we acknowledge that you have a right, and we have a duty, under federal and state law, to protect the confidentiality of your CPNI.
We value our relationship with you and would like to be able to occasionally make you aware of new products and services that improve your experience. If you would rather not hear from us, please check the box and return this letter to a Pioneer Communications office. You may still receive the occasional newsletter or postcard from us but you will not receive any targeted communication based on your CPNI. If at any time you have questions or concerns about this privacy statement or believe that we have not adhered to this privacy statement, please feel free to call us 800.308.7536 and speak to one of our representatives.
