Your privacy is important to us

Welcome to the TELUS Privacy Centre. Our Privacy Centre is your home to learn more about our privacy practices. As part of our ongoing commitment to putting customers first, TELUS has established a Data & Trust Office specifically charged with ensuring that our data handling practices are responsible and respectful of your privacy.
At TELUS, we know your privacy matters to you; earning and maintaining your trust matters to us. We understand that in today's technologically complex, data-driven world, it can be difficult to stay up-to-date on how personal information is being used. An important part of our commitment to respecting your privacy is our promise to be transparent with you about our privacy practices and to clearly explain how we protect your privacy.
We have created the TELUS Privacy Centre to provide you with information to help you understand TELUS' privacy practices and how we use data at TELUS. The Privacy Centre also contains best practices on how you can help to protect your information online, and much more.
Our commitments to you

Earning and maintaining your trust

We are committed to earning and maintaining your trust through our responsible, human-centric data practices.
We believe that an important part of respecting privacy is to be clear about how we handle customers' personal information, and to make information about our approach easily accessible. We have developed our Privacy Commitment to provide you with some specific details about our privacy practices, and our Privacy Code which sets out the general principles that govern our collection, use and disclosure of personal information.
In addition, we invite you to review the TELUS Trust Model that we established to guide our overall data handling practices.
Business customer privacy

Helping protect business-to-business privacy

At TELUS, we recognize that Business to Business (B2B) privacy roles and responsibilities differ from their Business to Consumer (B2C) counterparts. That’s why we introduced a B2B Privacy Policy to encourage trust and transparency in the B2B environment.

How you can help protect your information and privacy

TELUS takes strong measures to protect the privacy and security of your information, but we all need to take additional steps to protect our own data and our privacy online. We understand that it is not always easy to know where to start. A vital part of our commitment to your privacy is to share best practices with you on what you can do to protect your own privacy and security.

Transparency disclosure

There is increasing 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 publish an annual report, which provides insight into our approach when 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.
For information about the requests we receive from law enforcement for the personal information of our customers, read our Sustainability Report.
