How do you opt out of Comcast data collecting?

How do you opt out of comcast data collecting from web searches? It's creepy when things I've searched for on comcast internet start showing up in advertizing on comcast cable. No way do I trust the "not personally identifiable" nor do I care. I DO NOT WANT my data collected or used. Comcast makes enough money off me already without selling my 'aggregated' data. I want a comcast opt-out. NO 'targeted advertizing', NO selling of web searches. If I'm the customer they should not mine me for data to turn over to who knows who.

Most of these pages are just legal jargon that wont tell you how to opt-out.  Most of the links provided by Comcast are either broken or go back to similar pages that have basically the same information.  I think they are deliberately making it difficult for the customers to opt-out.  

 

Comcast, stop trying to obfuscate.  Just give us a link that give the customer the ability to tell comcast to stop the collection of personal private data.
