Specific circumstances

We also assess impact in specific circumstances. For example:

  • Developing new products/ services/ technologies or making substantial changes to existing ones

  • Vodafone has a Trust-by-Design methodology that ensures customer privacy, security and human rights are considered as part of our product development lifecycle process

  • Entering new markets, partnerships and acquisitions, or in anticipation of changes in our existing operating environments

  • As part of our standard commercial process for potential acquisitions, licence applications or new local operator partnerships, human rights impact assessments are a standard issue included in this consideration, together with security and privacy topics.
