We have set out our core Privacy Commitments ( http://www.vodafone.com/content/index/about/privacy.html) in our Privacy Centre. We aim to put these commitments at the heart of everything we do.
The personal information we collect about you and how we collect it can vary depending on the products and services that you use and subscribe to, how you have used the products and services, and how you have interacted with Vodafone even if you aren’t a customer, or what we have obtained from a third party with permission to share it with us.
We also collect information from certain organisations, where appropriate and to the extent we have legal grounds to do so. These include fraud-prevention agencies, business directories, credit check reference/vetting agencies, billing calculating agencies and connected network providers.
We will use your personal information for the following purpose
Vodafone uses personal data such as your name, email address, password, mobile phone number and call records in order to do this. Vodafone creates aggregated and statistical management reports from this information that do not identify you individually. Vodafone may also take this personal data and anonymise it so that more in-depth analysis of our roaming services can be undertaken. This helps Vodafone to develop its roaming services for customers without identifying users in an individual way.
We use a variety of analytics methods including what is commonly referred to as “Big data analytics”. Big data analytics are a mathematically driven analysis techniques where large and varied data sets (that is why it is “big” data) to uncover hidden patterns and hitherto unrevealed trends. At Vodafone we take governance of big data analytics seriously. Our data scientists are required to sign up to a Code of Ethics.

Where you’ve purchased Vodafone products and services using a third party or partner organisation, we often need to exchange information with them as part of managing that relationship and your account – for example, to be able to identify your order and be able to pay them.
If we have a contract with a service provider or contractor to provide us with services or provide a service on our behalf, and they may have access to your personal information, we don’t authorise them to use or disclose your personal information except in connection with providing their services.
We collect and combine information in order to monitor your use of products and services, and that of our other customers, as well as to help us to improve the quality of our products and services.

If you have given consent, from time to time, we may contact you on behalf of any of our third party partner companies. We do not share your personal information with these companies for this purpose. Such third party partner companies may include any commercial and non-commercial organisations for example philanthropic associations, wholesalers and retailers, entertainment, health services, transportation industry, hospitality and restaurateurs, aviation, communication and information technology industry, real estate agencies, financial and insurance companies.
