Collection of Information

Depending on the service you are accessing, you could be asked to provide information such as your name, email address. It is entirely your choice whether to respond to these questions or not. Australian Phone Company collects two types of information. The first type is anonymous information. For instance, we may collect information to tell us that number of people visit our web site today, but we do not know their names, where they live or their date of birth - they are 'anonymous' to us. Another example of Australian Phone Company collecting anonymous information is when our customers audiences are invited to respond to surveys on the website or mail survey mail distribution. The surveys may ask you for demographic information such as your age, gender and postcode. This information is collected for research purposes, is used in the aggregate (where possible), and remains anonymous. Many of the individuals who access our services are anonymous to us. The second type of information that Australian Phone Company collects is personal information. Australian Phone Company will collect personal information that lets us know the specifics of who you are such as your name, email address, postal address, phone number when you provide it to us. With this information, Australian Phone Company can provide a variety of personalized and enhanced services that are not available to anonymous users.

Sometimes, we may specifically ask for personal information about you when you sign up to use a service. Certain information may be required, such as your name, age, internet address or screen name, billing address, type of computer, credit card number, in order to provide that service or product to you. This information may also be used to inform you of additional products and services which may interest you.

How much of your personal information that you choose to disclose to Australian Phone Company is completely up to you.
