If you are an IDT registered customer, we may use your personal information for the purposes of: (a) allowing you to make certain payments using our products and services (b) verifying that you are the relevant IDT customer if you call Customer Services or otherwise contact IDT (for reasons of security, you will be asked for some of the details you provided during the registration process) (c) informing you of any service related changes affecting your use of IDT products and services; (d) contacting you to ask whether you are interested in using a new IDT offering (e) contacting you to ask whether you would like to attend a research group to help us improve our service to you (f) for crime and fraud detection and prevention (g) collecting any payments due from you
If you are an IDT registered customer, you may, at any time, change your mind about receiving information from IDT or other companies in the future. If you subsequently decide that you no longer wish to receive information about either our products and services or those of third parties, you can notify us in writing by writing to IDT Financial Services Limited, PO Box 1374, Gibraltar or email us at [email protected]
In connection with the provision of services to you IDT, and any other companies or agencies authorised by us, may carry out credit checks and fraud prevention checks with one or more licensed credit reference and fraud prevention agencies and we may retain a record of the search. Information held about you by such agencies may be linked to records relating to other persons living at the same address and such records will be taken into account in credit checks and fraud prevention checks. Information from your application and payment details of your account will be recorded with one or more of these agencies and may be shared with other organisations to help make credit and insurance decisions about you and members of your household and for debt collection and fraud prevention.
IDT may also share the information which you provide with our affiliates or third parties for administration, data storage or processing purposes.

Children On The Web
IDT does not specifically collect information about children and we believe that children should get their parents' consent before giving out any personal information. We encourage you to participate in your child's exploration of the Internet. IDT also recommends that parents use Web filtering technology to supervise their children’s access to the Web.
