Hinton Telephone Co. has internal procedures in place to educate our employees about CPNI and the disclosure of CPNI.  Our employees are instructed that CPNI is information that relates to the quantity, technical configuration, type, destination, location and amount of use of the telecommunications services subscribed to by any customer of Hinton Telephone Co. that is made available to us by the customer solely by virtue of our relationship with our customers; and information contained in the bills pertaining to telephone exchange service or toll service of other carriers that we bill for received by our customers; except that such term does not include subscriber list information.  Our employees that have access to this information are aware of the FCC’s rules and are prohibited from disclosing or permitting access to CPNI without the appropriate customer consent or as allowed by law and the FCC rules.  Any employee that discloses CPNI is subject to disciplinary action, and possible termination.

Hinton Telephone Co. has not taken any action against data brokers during the preceding year regarding unauthorized release of CPNI; nor has Hinton Telephone Co. received any customer complaints concerning the unauthorized access to or unauthorized disclosure of CPNI.  Hinton Telephone Co. has  implemented safeguard procedures to protect our customers’ CPNI from pretexters including, but not limited to, the adoption and implementation of a policy for customer requests for CPNI consistent with 47 C.F.R. §64.2010.
