MONTRÉAL, QUÉBEC--(Marketwired - Oct. 28, 2013) - Cogeco Cable Canada (« Cogeco ») confirms today its commitment to its customers' privacy. This confirmation is made in light of a telecommunications company's recent decision to modify its privacy policy to allow for the collection of data on its users' TV and web habits and telephone pattern, a decision which has provoked recent outrage by Canadian consumers and consumer associations, among others.

"Cogeco shares their concerns with regard to the usage of personal data. Cogeco does not publicly disclose or sell data on its customers' behavior patterns identified through their network usage. Cogeco furthermore does not sell personal information to third parties for sales or marketing purposes," stated Louise St-Pierre, President and Chief Executive Officer, Cogeco Cable Canada.

The collection and usage of personal information entrusted to Cogeco Cable Canada by its customers is governed by Cogeco's Privacy Commitment and Policy, both of which are disclosed publicly on its corporate website.
