Some emails that we send you have no tracking in at all e.g. service emails with invoices attached. Other emails we send we put in tracking so that we can tell how much traffic those emails send to our site, and can track at an individual level whether the user has opened and clicked on the email. We rarely use the latter information at a personal level, rather we use it to understand open and click rates on our emails to try and improve them. Sometimes we do use the personal information e.g. to re-email people who didn’t click the first time. If you want to be sure that none of your email activity is tracked then you should opt out of Mediatel’s emails which you can do by emailing email@example.com or writing to Marketing Dept, Mediatel Limited, 114 St. Martin's Lane, London WC2N 4BE.
In order to process payments online we require your name and postal address, alongside telephone and email details. This information will be used to send you an invoice if requested. Your details will also be added to our mailing list to receive further marketing information - all marketing emails contain an unsubscribe option.
