MediaPost reports Comcast published a blog post defending its privacy practices and addressed misconceptions about how it uses personal data. The internet service provider said it does not employ user data for advertising purposes, and the data it collects on users is deleted in 24 hours. "Millions of Comcast customers look up billions of addresses online every day," Comcast Chief Privacy Officer Christin McMeley wrote on the company's blog. "We’ve never used that data for any sort of marketing or advertising — and we have never sold it to anyone." Comcast's defense comes following reports of its lobbying against web traffic encryption on Capitol Hill.
