When subscribed to and using a CMS Service and its features, personally identifiable and non-personal identifiable information about You is transmitted and may be collected and stored for a period of time. The transmission, collection and storage of this information is necessary to allow You to use the Service as You have chosen. In certain situations third parties may transmit, collect and store this information on our behalf to provide features of the subscribed Service or other business functions. These third parties are restricted to the use of this information as noted elsewhere in this Policy.
If You subscribe to CMS telephone service, Your name, address and/or telephone number may be transmitted by Caller ID, published and distributed in telephone directories, and available through directory assistance. CMS takes reasonable steps to ensure that non-published and non-listed numbers are not included in the telephone directories or directory assistance services, although we cannot guarantee that errors will never occur. Caller ID blocking may not prevent the display of Your name and/or telephone number when You dial certain numbers, such as a public agency’s emergency telephone line, poison control services, 911 services, 800, 855, 866, 877, 888, or 900 numbers.
We do not sell or rent personal information to third parties.

(2) services necessary to, or used in, the provision of these services, including the publishing of directories.
The Telecommunications Act prohibits CMS from using CPNI for purposes other than these except as permitted or required by law or with your approval. Procedures outlining the use of this data are listed elsewhere in this Policy and are in accordance with the Telecommunications Act with reference to CPNI.
The Telecommunications Act classifies Your name, address, and telephone number as “subscriber list information” which is not subject to the protections applicable to CPNI. However, that information is subject to protections as noted elsewhere in this Policy.
