Unlike cable modems, your DSL is totally private, up to your ISP. It is possible that your ISP can monitor your use of the web, but no more likely than if you use a dialup modem. Note: this does not mean you cannot be hacked by someone else on the internet, it just means that you have a separate line from you to your ISP, so no local neighbors can listen to your data.
