Customer Identifiable Information
Kievstar Communications respects your privacy and seeks to guard your data carefully. We realize that the exciting growth of the Internet and online services has created additional privacy concerns for consumers regarding what information is collected about them. We want you to know that Kievstar Communications intends to maintain strict customer information privacy policies.
Online privacy concerns typically focus on the protection of "customer identifiable" information which many customers expect to be kept private. As the term suggests, "customer identifiable" information is information which can be associated with a specific individual or entity, including, for example, a customer's name, address, or telephone number, e-mail address, and information about online activities that are directly linked to the customer.
It is common
practice and often a necessity for companies, governments, or other
organizations to collect customer identifiable information in order to
conduct business and offer services.
Consumers signing up for an Internet access service, for example,
are usually asked to provide name, address, telephone number and credit
card and other information that is typical when the consumer orders a
product or service.
Similarly, business web sites, such as Kievstar Communications, may ask visitors to supply information about themselves, particularly when information, services or merchandise are requested, but often simply to be able to better target the company's services to the customer's interests and requirements.
