This message appeared on my TiVo tonight. Apparently they’ve updated their privacy policy, in anticipation of some upcoming “commerce services”.

The message told me to view the new policy here, and it looks like these are the relevant bits:

If you affirmatively elect to engage in a commercial transaction using the TiVo service, such as by responding to an advertisement on the TiVo service, TiVo will collect and disclose your Commerce Information to the commerce partner fulfilling the transaction.

TiVo intends to make available new services in the future. These services will be governed by the privacy policies of the respective service providers.
