NETWORK AND INFORMATION SECURITY
We maintain a variety of physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to guard your personal information. For example, we take a variety of steps to protect against unauthorized access to our systems that store personal information such as policies limiting access to those systems to authorized personnel.
All orders on the Telmex USA website utilize a Secure Socket Layer (SSL) or Secure Electronic Transaction (SET) protocol to provide "secure sessions" for our visitors. Order forms will be sent and will arrive privately and unaltered at Telmex USA server.
Also, we use encryption technologies to protect your account information when you are viewing your bill on our Website or via email. You should be aware that Telmex USA has no control over the security of other sites on the Internet you might visit, interact with, or from which you buy products or services.
You should keep your user name, password or other access information safe and confidential to protect against unauthorized access to your account information and services. And you must adopt passwords that others may not guess easily.
CHILDREN’S ONLINE PRIVACY
Telmex USA recognizes that children may not be able to make informed choices about giving out personally identifiable information.
Telmex USA is committed to protecting the privacy needs of children and we encourage parents and guardians to take an active role in their children's online activities and interests. Telmex USA does not knowingly collect information from children under the age of 13 and does not target its website to children under 13.
For collection of personally identifiable information (that is, name, address, telephone number, or e-mail address). If a child has provided us with personally identifiable information without the consent or parent or guardian, a parent or guardian of that child should contact us at the e-mail address listed at the bottom of this Statement if they would like this information deleted from our records.
We will use reasonable efforts to delete the child's information from our records. Telmex USA encourages parents to take an active role to protect the privacy and security of their children and to prevent the inappropriate use of information about their children.
PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION
Telmex USA will not collect any personally identifiable information about you (that is, your name, address, telephone number, or e-mail address) unless you provide it to us voluntarily. Telmex USA does not share, disclose or sell any personally-identifiable information (such as your name, address, telephone number or e-mail address) collected online on Telmex USA sites with other unaffiliated companies or organizations for non-Telmex USA marketing purposes, but we restrict their use and limit disclosure of CPNI for purposes or providing service to you or to market products and services as previously described. We will also prohibit the third party from further disclosing the CPNI except as required by law and require the third party to implement safeguards to protect the confidentiality of the CPNI.
Because this information is a critical part of our business, it would be treated like our other assets in the context of a merger, sale or other corporate reorganization or legal proceeding

We may also use CPNI to contact former customers when permitted by law. And, to provide your service, we may use and disclose CPNI to our agents, affiliates, joint venture partners and independent contractors, but we restrict their use and limit disclosure of CPNI for purposes or providing service to you or to market products and services as previously described. We will also prohibit the third party from further disclosing the CPNI except as required by law and require the third party to implement safeguards to protect the confidentiality of the CPNI.
