However, "opting out" will not affect the provision of any services we are furnishing you.Regardless of whether you consent or not, your CPNI will continue to be treated as confidential.

Disclosures of CPNI may also be mandated pursuant to requirements of the Federal Communications Commission or the Utah Public Services Commission. Finally, federal and state rules permit certain disclosures of CPNI to prevent fraud or abuse, for billing and collection, for provisioning service, and in other limited circumstances.
