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.
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.
How We Use the Information
Telmex USA uses the personally-identifiable information we collect online principally to provide you with the service(s) you have ordered and to let you know about other offerings which may be of interest to you. Postal and e-mail address information, for example, enables communication about services offered and ordered, as well as the proper provisioning and billing of those services.
We also provide personally-identifiable online information in response to subpoenas and other legal demands, and where we believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against individuals who may be endangering public safety or interfering with Telmex USA property or services, or with our customers' or others' use of them.
Declining E-mail offers
As outlined in the Personally-Identifiable Information section of this Statement, we will only send e-mail promotions or announcements to you if you have previously provided your permission for us to do so.

At any time, you may unsubscribe from our e-mail list by filling out our sample online unsubscribe form. All e-mail offers that you receive from Telmex USA, will inform you how to decline receiving further e-mail offers.
Telmex USA will update this Policy if our practices change or if the law requires changes to it. If at any point we decide to use personally identifiable information in a manner that is materially different from what was stated at the time it was collected, we will notify you via posting on this page for 30 days before the material change is made and give you an opportunity to opt out of the proposed use at any time.
What else should you know?
Please be careful and responsible whenever you are online. If you post personal information online that is accessible to the public, you may receive unsolicited messages from other parties in return.
While we strive to protect your personal information, Telmex USA cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk.
