How We Manage the Collection, Use and Disclosure of Your Personal Data

As far as possible, we will not collect more personal data than necessary for the stated purpose.

Under certain circumstances, we may assume deemed consent from you when you voluntarily provide your personal data for the stated purpose, e.g. when you provide personal data in a security related matter.

If you do a transaction with us on behalf of another individual, you must first obtain consent from that individual in order for us to collect, use or disclose his/her personal data.

How You Can Limit Processing of Personal Data

  • Withdrawal of Consent

If you wish to withdraw consent, you should give us reasonable advance notice. You have to be aware, though, of the likely consequences of your withdrawal of consent, e.g. without your personal contact information we may not be able to inform you of future services offered by Kimly or our clients.

Your request for withdrawal of consent can take the form of an email or letter to us.

How You Can Access and Make Correction to Your Personal Data

You may write in to us, based on reasonable grounds, to find out how we have been using or disclosing your personal data. We are obligated under the PDPA to allow you access to your personal data of the past one year, and to make any correction if there is any error or omission. Before we accede to your request, we may need to verify your identity by checking your NRIC or other legal identification document.

We will endeavor to fulfill your request within 30 days, with an estimate of the fee for processing the request, if applicable. If we are not able to do so within 30 days, we will notify you of the additional time required.
