Verizon Online, LLC: Cease turning over the private records of Americans to the NSA

Not only does this violate Verizon's privacy policy in your terms of service (quotation below), but it denies American citizens their basic rights to privacy. Stand with me, and take action by signing this petition asking Verizon to end the NSA invasion of your personal privacy. If Verizon does not end their cooperation with the NSA in this unconstitutional matter, you are well within your rights to terminate your contract without fees, penalties, or any legal action taken against you for early termination in accordance with U.S. law, the Constitution of the United States of America, Verizon's terms of service and Verizon's privacy policy

In addition, Verizon is required by law to report any facts or circumstances reported to us or that we discover from which it appears there may be a violation of the child pornography laws. We reserve the right to report any such information, including the identity of users, account information, images and other facts to law enforcement personnel.

Verizon Wireless, LLC, by providing the data requested by the NSA, you are violating your own privacy policy and terms of service, and you violate the rights afforded to citizens by the Constitution of the United States of America in the Bill of Rights. Your privacy policy states that you reserve the right to provide account and user information as required or permitted by law. The Constitution supercedes all other law in this country, and must be taken into account in this matter. Not only do your actions violate your privacy policy and your terms of service (quotation below), but it denies American citizens their basic rights to privacy. If you continue abiding by the demands of the NSA, I, the undersigned, demand just compensation, to include nothing less than termination of my service, without fee or penalty.

In addition, complying with the NSA in this issue violates the Bill of Rights. The 4th Amendment (quoted below) explicitly states the rights of people against search and seizure without probable cause.

The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.


In addition, the 5th Amendment (quotation below) states that no private property shall be deprived of any person, without due process of law and just compensation.

No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the Militia, when in actual service in time of War or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offence to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.


I, the undersigned, request that you, Verizon Online, LLC, take action against the NSA and defend the Constitution of the United States of America by halting the provision of information to any legal or political entity, to include the NSA, regarding customer names, accounts, numbers, and use of services. If no such action is taken and publicly announced by the end of this month, I, the undersigned, demand the termination of my account and all fees associated with the account, without further fees, fines, or penalties taken against me.
