Third Party Providers of Additional Services and Websites

As part of certain Online Services, such as Optimum Online Boost, you may be provided the opportunity to purchase additional services or features from authorized third party providers. You should also be aware that our Online Services may allow you to view third party content, applications or interact with third party entities or individuals that are independent of Cablevision as well as third parties who operate co-branded features of or optional services through the Online Service pursuant to agreements with Cablevision. By using services provided or operated by third parties, you may enable these third parties to obtain personally identifiable information about you. The practices described in this notice do not apply to any such third parties. You must review the privacy policies, if any, provided by these third parties.

Consistent with the requirements found in the Cable Communications Policy Act of 1984 ("Cable Act"), the Electronic Communications Privacy Act ("ECPA"), the Digital Millennium Copyright ("DMCA") and other federal laws, we may disclose personally identifiable information to representatives of government or other authorized persons. We will disclose such information pursuant to a warrant, court order, administrative subpoena, other legal process or voluntarily if we reasonably believe that an emergency involving immediate danger of death or serious injury to any person justifies disclosure of the information.

A private party may also use a subpoena under the DMCA to require our disclosure of a subscriber's personally identifiable information when the party believes the subscriber has infringed on the copyright of such party. Upon receipt of the subpoena, we are required to identify the alleged infringer, without any notice to such subscriber.

The ECPA also authorizes, and other laws may require, the disclosure of subscriber content or other communications made via our Online Services if we become aware of evidence of child pornography, we inadvertently obtain content or communications and it appears to pertain to the commission of a crime, or disclosure is to law enforcement if we believe there is an emergency involving death or serious injury that requires disclosure. Disclosure of content and communications is also permitted to an addressee or intended recipient; to a person involved in forwarding such information to its destination; when it is necessarily incident to providing our Online Service or to protect our rights or property; or to others with your consent or the consent of the addressee or intended recipient of the communications.

If federal law requires, we will provide you with notice of the disclosures provided above.
