Frequently Asked Questions
Why has this page changed from "Segmented Advertising" to "Your Advertising Preferences for Cable Video Services?" Is this a different opt-out?
This page still gives you the option to opt out of receiving more relevant advertising on our cable television-based video services. The language has changed to make it clearer that this opt-out applies only to these cable video services and to better explain what your choices are.
Why is this opt-out only for advertising on cable video services? What if I want to opt out of more relevant advertising online? How can I do that?
Advertising delivered through Comcast’s cable video-based video services is managed separately from online advertising. To opt out of receiving more relevant online advertising on Comcast’s websites, go to http://xfinity.comcast.net/adinformation/. This page also includes a link that allows you to opt out of other companies’ behavioral advertising.
If I previously opted out of segmented advertising, will you still honor my choice? Or do I have to opt out of "Activity Data" and "Ad Groups?"
We will honor your prior choice. If you have already opted out of "segmented advertising" you do not need to opt out again. We will honor your choices going forward with the updated Your Advertising Preferences for Video Services page.
If I have already opted out, can I change my mind?
Yes, you can tell us at any time that you would like to be included in Activity Data and Ad Groups by going to http://www.xfinity.com/adservices or calling 1-800-229-7150.
I opted out (or opted back in) to receive more relevant advertising, but I am not sure you changed anything. When will you respond to my choices?
It may take up to 30 days for the preferences you express to take effect.
Can I still opt out or opt back in by phone?
Yes, you can still tell us whether you wish to wish to be included in "Activity Data" and "Ad Groups" by going to http://www.xfinity.com/adservices or calling 1-800-229-7150.
What is Activity Data exactly? What data do you collect and use to deliver more relevant advertising?
Activity data is simply information about how you use Comcast’s cable television services, and how you view the video we deliver to you on all platforms where it is available. You can learn more about the information we collect and how we use it by reading the Comcast Customer Privacy Notice.
If I don’t opt out, will you share information about me personally with advertisers?
No, Comcast does not share information about individual customers with advertisers. We do report how our customers in the aggregate (in groups) use our products and services. This includes reporting on ad delivery and ad viewing.
If I opt out, will I still see advertising? If I opt back in, will I see more ads?
Your choices about whether you want to see more relevant advertising will not affect the number of ads you see. You will still see advertising even if you opt out.
