The contact tag is the prefix for several contact:* keys to describe contacts.
|2014 - Although many applications support both, the old tags (phone=*, fax=*, url=* and website=*) remain more popular after four years (including in main editors presets).|
You should only add contact information to POIs and not to any private address!
Email-addresses which are only available on a website after solving a captcha, or which are in other ways obfuscated to protect against SPAM-bots should not be tagged in OSM.
