What third party disclosure choices do Subscribers have?

Subscriber can always choose not to disclose Personal Information to Columbia Energy; however, certain Personal Information is necessary for Columbia Energy to provide the Services to Subscriber or to access certain parts of the Site. Subscribers may opt-out of sharing Personal Information with our Affiliates only for marketing or advertising purposes, but not for business or operational purposes.

Subscriber may opt-out of email marketing and advertising from Columbia Energy or its Affiliates using the "Unsubscribe" mechanism in each email. Before Columbia Energy sends Subscriber a text for any reason, or sends Subscriber a pre-recorded call that contains advertising or marketing information, Columbia Energy will secure Subscriber’s prior written express consent, which can be given via a voice recording, email, text message, postal mail, or telephone key press. Non-telemarketing pre-recorded calls do not require Subscriber’s prior express consent in writing, unless they are sent to a wireless device. Subscriber understands, acknowledges and agrees that such texts and pre-recorded telemarketing calls may be sent using an autodialer and are not conditioned on your purchase of the Services. Subscriber may opt out of receiving text messages any time by replying "STOP" or "UNSUBSCRIBE" to the text message. Subscriber may opt-out of receiving pre-recorded calls by the opt-out instructions in the call. However, Subscriber will continue to receive calls related to debt-collection and Subscriber’s current service. Subscriber may also opt-out of First Party Advertising, but not Contextual Advertising, as detailed in the "Use of Personal Information for Marketing or Advertising Purposes" section above.

Subscriber may not opt out of Columbia Energy’s use of cookies or other similar technology, or use of Subscriber’s Personal Information and Non-Personal Information for Columbia Energy’s internal analytics used to monitor activity on Columbia Energy’s Site, measure Columbia Energy Services’ performance, or to operate and protect the Columbia Energy Network.
