Yes, I have anticipated those problems already. I think it should be
optional to supply a phone number, but even so, I have created what is
called a view which restricts the level of access certain users have to
data. For example, as the adminstratory I have access to all data which
has been entered. But other users only have access to surname, first
name and email address and state. Even location might be found a bit
much, but I think state is pretty safe.
