I agree with the summary of Denis until on the point with the phone number.

Quote from the Wiki (https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:phone)

Some countries have very well established national standards on how telephone numbers are written (e.g. xxx-xxx-xxxx in the US) which leads to mappers in those countries preferring that format over the aforementioned standards (but even in this case, the "+1-xxx-xxx-xxxx" format for the NANP standard should be explicit, to indicate that this phone number is callable internationally: OSM user agents should not have to guess how to perform a call according to geographic locations, or according to the value of the first 3-digit group).

Additionally, I recommend to change the value for the website from... /whats-new to... /details. 
Example: https://www.walmart.com/store/1902/ammon-id/details  
instead https://www.walmart.com/store/1902/ammon-id/whats-new 

Maybe that's the price we have to pay for the data donation.
