DATA PROTECTION—NEW ZEALANDDecember 2, 2011
Telecom says a member of its staff did not provide personal details in order to track down a stolen laptop, Stuff.co.nz reports. A poster to an online news group said their laptop was stolen and a Telecom staffer provided the Internet protocol number connecting the laptop to the Internet and the user's associated personal information, including a phone number and address. A Telecom spokesman said the company takes customer privacy seriously and that an internal investigation showed no evidence that a staffer had leaked the alleged user's personal information.
