Qwest Still Sucks

I don't trust Qwest. Ever. They've screwed me around too many times and having to contact the attorney general to get them to stop sending me bills for "Shirley" really tweaked me. So when I'm checking out some online information on them, I noticed the following little tidbit (emphasis mine):

All submitted information is treated as confidential by Qwest.
We never share the information gathered without your permission.
See our Customer Privacy Policy for further details.

Well, OK. I'll check out their privacy policy because I'm pretty curious how they define the word "never". I usually think it means "not ever", but hey, I am not a lawyer.

As a general rule, Qwest does not release customer account information to unaffiliated third parties without your permission unless we have a business relationship with those companies where the disclosure is appropriate. For example, we may hire outside companies as contractors or agents; or we might be engaged in a joint venture or partnership with a company. Upon occasion, Qwest may decide to stop providing a service or may decide to sell or transfer parts of our business to unaffiliated companies. When this happens, we may provide confidential customer information to these companies so that they can offer you the same or similar services. In all of these situations, we provide information to these other companies only as needed to accomplish our business objectives and the companies are bound by requirements to keep Qwest customers' information confidential.

That's why I would never make it as a lawyer, see? I don't even know what "never" means. How could I possibly follow along when big words like "integrity" and "decency" are being used?
