Data analytics is the examination or analysis of data in order to gather useful insights or draw conclusions. Public Mobile conducts data analytics using customer data to manage and develop our business and operations, to understand your needs and preferences, and to develop, enhance, market or provide products and services to you.
At Public Mobile, we believe that data can also be used to benefit society (for social good), when used responsibly. With today's technology, we have access to more data that can be de-identified (personal identifiers are removed), aggregated and then studied to help partners make better decisions than ever before – decisions that can improve our lives, our health, our cities and our society.
We recognize that new uses of data can create new privacy challenges. It's now more important than ever to protect your privacy. While we look for new ways to deliver on the promise of data analytics, we remain steadfast in our promise to protect your privacy.
TELUS WISE (Wise Internet and Smartphone Education) is an industry-leading educational program on Internet and Smartphone safety that builds on TELUS' track record of partnering with the Canadian Centre for Child Protection to offer similar educational information to Canadians.

In 2016, there was continued global discussion about disclosures of personal information to government organizations for law enforcement purposes. Accurate information about the nature and volume of personal information requests by law enforcement to private companies helps inform this ongoing discussion, and will shape our country’s privacy landscape. It is in that spirit that we provide our fourth annual transparency report, which provides insight into our approach responding to requests as well as the volume and types of requests we receive. We are proud of our record of openly sharing with our customers the details about how we respectfully handle and secure their data.
