WASHINGTON, June 27, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Please attribute the following statement to CTIA-The Wireless Association® Executive Vice President Chris Guttman-McCabe:
"Although we have not yet read the Declaratory Ruling, we are very pleased with the leadership of Acting Chairwoman Clyburn and the significant input from Commissioner Pai's and Commissioner Rosenworcel's offices as they worked to finalize efforts to clarify how section 222 privacy rules apply to information stored on mobile communications devices. CTIA and its members take security and privacy seriously and are committed to protecting customer proprietary network information that a carrier causes to be stored on a mobile communications device and to which the carrier has access. As CTIA has highlighted in this proceeding, protecting consumer privacy in an open Internet environment will require multi-faceted efforts that include a broad range of participants, extending well beyond the carrier-consumer relationship. CTIA and its members have been active participants in this undertaking, and the Chairwoman and Commissioners' efforts to preserve such collaborative multi-stakeholder processes, including the ongoing process at NTIA, ultimately will benefit consumers."
