“To be give or not to give my consent?” Singapore PDPA Preventive measure 9 Obligations to follow PDPA (No.3)

00021

1st Obligation (1/9)

There are times we just “consent” to the application without reading through. This is especially true for using of new apps. I would be sharing this in bite size for both as a consumer and organization.

For Organization

What is it ?

  • Consent: Permission for something to happen or agreement to do something
  • Consent Obligation : Only collect, use or disclose personal data for purposes for which an individual has given his or her consent.
  • Allow your customers to withdraw consent , with reasonable notice and let them know the consequences of withdrawal.

How to obtain it?

  • Through verbal or written consent.
  • It is best to collect in written or recorded manner for future reference.
  • Deemed consent : Customer voluntarily provides the personal data to the organization for that purpose during reasonable circumstances.
  • Events : It is possible to place a notice (for consent) at the entrance. For example : “Photography and video would be taken during this event”.

×Failure to Opt out is not regarded as consent in all situations. For example : If there is no reply , we will take it as you agree to this new arrangement.

For Consumer

What could you do ?

  • Consumers are allow to withdraw consent with reasonable notice even after giving consent to the organization.

How to give consent?

  • Voluntary in written or verbal agreement
  • Acting on behalf of family members whom you had notified the purpose
  • Help obtain the personal data from 3rd party with consent of the individual ( eg : friends)

This are the examples for Consent Obligation. If you do have any enquiries, feel free to contact us at info@mamoru.com.sg  . The next article would be about Purpose Limitation Obligation.
