Take note, the above statement states that they do not sell information, but does not state that they will not do so in the future. Reading through the link also turns up some interesting statements that I have highlighted below..


"Hughes is committed to protecting the privacy of its subscribers. This Privacy Policy governs only Hughes’ treatment of information about subscribers to Hughes’ HughesNet service. By applying for or continuing to use the Service, you agree to the terms of this Policy, as modified from time to time. This Privacy Policy does not apply to any goods or services controlled by third parties, even if those third parties are partners of Hughes."

"Hughes reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to modify the terms of this Privacy Policy at any time. In the event of any material changes to the Privacy Policy, Hughes will provide notice over the Service that the Privacy Policy is being modified, and invite you to review the modified Privacy Policy at this Website.
