Added the paragraph, people![edit]

I just added the paragraph about the need to ask consent to access CPNI information. I am currently receiving training about this. Apparently this is the law in the United States.--Achim 00:57, 18 April 2006 (UTC)

Telemarketing information inaccurate[edit]

The restrictions apply to 3rd parties, joint venture partnerships, or independent contractors

Directory information (name, address, phone number), public information, or mass marketing is not considered a use of CPNI.

An 'in kind' (allowable) use of CPNI could be a long distance company that markets a special rate to their customers who have a history of calling Mexico. A restricted use of CPNI would be 'sharing' those names to another division or company who would try to sell them vacation packages to Mexico.

Of course, with an opt in from the customer on record, the second example would be legitimate.

Don't confuse the obligations imposed by the Do Not Call list with the CPNI regulations--even though there are similarities between the allowed exemptions for existing relationships. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Khaliban (talkcontribs) 17:59, 27 February 2008 (UTC)

Too much personal interpretation:[edit]

The middle section of the "description", which attempts to explain application of FCC rules, is written as a personal interpretation of the these rules rather than cited, fact-based information. The grammar is poor, and the entire second half of the paragraph is one long run-on sentence. I suggest this section be completely eliminated from this article and replaced with a more factual description of related laws and FCC regs (sans opinion or personal interpretation). — Preceding unsigned comment added by 24.29.109.142 (talk) 00:45, 21 April 2015 (UTC)
