The Canberra Times has taken a step towards ending the delivery of a Chronicle to every house/unit/flat in Canberra.
Today’s Times carries a half page ad on page 9 pushing The Chronicle’s new Online edition.
The Times is selling the environmental benefit, but the clincher is a notation under the three easy steps to get the online version. It reads “Please note: Printed delivery will automatically cease upon registration for the online edition when address is provided.”
While the removal of unwanted copies of The Chronicle from footpaths etc will be welcome, one wonders about the privacy implications of providing at least some of your personal details to The Canberra Times to get the deliveries halted.
