Cable Communications Policy Act (CPPA) of 1984

Governs personally identifiable information gathered by cable operators. With the exception of information that is used to provide service or detect unauthorized reception, cable operators must obtain written permission from subscribers before collecting or disclosing specific information about the individual. The CPPA provides for disclosure of information to government bodies when the government offers sufficient evidence that the customer engaged in criminal activity to which the information is relevant.
