Why use this pattern?

If your service collects personal information from a user either directly or indirectly, you must ensure that the user is informed of:

  • the purpose for which the information is being collected;
  • the legal authority for collecting it; and
  • the title, business address, and business telephone number of an officer or employee who can answer questions about the collection.
