What kind of information can a Lumen customer obtain without a legal demand?
The Trust and Safety team can provide customers with information concerning the local and long-distance calls made from the customer's phone number at a certain date and time. Keep in mind that some of this information is available to customers in their billing statements through Control Centre (Business) or My CenturyLink (Residential). The Trust and Safety team does charge the appropriate fees for looking up this information. The Trust and Safety team cannot provide information concerning incoming telephone calls without a proper legal demand (either a subpoena or court order).
