Vodafone Breached The Privacy Act, But Not As Badly As First Thought

Last month, Vodafone was in a lot of trouble with the privacy commissioner for supposedly giving up customer data on the web. The privacy commissioner has cleared the telco against the allegations, but found that Voda's system wasn't up to scratch.

Privacy commissioner Timothy Pilgrim has found that a small number of staff were doing the dodgy with customers data, but on the whole the customer information wasn't actually publicly available. That said, they did find that Voda hadn't done a good enough job of protecting customers' personal details.

Still, being cleared by the privacy commissioner probably won't do too much to help the telco's public image...
