Comcast Statement on Internet Privacy

Philadelphia, PA.

Comcast Cable Communications President Stephen B. Burke issued the following statement today regarding Internet privacy:

"Comcast respects the privacy of all our subscribers and is committed to fully protect their rights. Comcast has not shared and will not share personal information about where our subscribers go on the Web, either for any internal purpose or with any outside party, except as required by law. Consistent with our subscriber agreement and our privacy policy, which every subscriber acknowledges before receiving our service, Comcast reviews information in aggregate form only for purposes of network performance management to ensure an optimal Internet network experience for our subscribers."

"Since we launched our own Internet network six weeks ago in the wake of Excite@Home's bankruptcy, IP and URL information has been stored temporarily. This information has never been connected to individual subscribers and has been purged automatically to protect subscriber privacy. Beginning immediately, we will stop storing this individual customer information in order to completely reassure our customers that the privacy of their information is secure."
