What Is Personal Data at Vision Group?

At Vision Group, we believe strongly in fundamental privacy rights — and that those fundamental rights should not differ depending on where you live in the world. That’s why we treat any data that relates to an identified or identifiable individual or that is linked or linkable to them by Vision Group as “personal data,” no matter where the individual lives. This means that data that directly identifies you — such as your name is personal data, and also data that does not directly identify you, but that can reasonably be used to identify you. Aggregated data is considered non-personal data for the purposes of this Privacy Policy. This Privacy Policy covers how Vision Group or an Vision Group-affiliated company (collectively, “Vision Group”) handles personal data whether you interact with us on our websites, through Vision Group apps (such as Vision Digital Experience ), or in person (including by phone or when visiting our Offices or branches). Vision Group may also link to third parties on our services. Vision Group’s Privacy Policy does not apply to how third parties define personal data or how they use it. We encourage you to read their privacy policies and know your privacy rights before interacting with them.

Your Privacy Rights at Vision Group

At Vision Group, we respect your ability to know, access, correct, transfer, restrict the processing of, and delete your personal data. We have provided these rights to our customer base and if you choose to exercise these privacy rights, you have the right not to be treated in a discriminatory way nor to receive a lesser degree of service from Vision Group.
To help protect the security of your personal data, you must sign in to your account and your identity will be verified. If the Data and Privacy page is not available in your region, you can make privacy rights requests at Email: it@newvision.co.ug, Telephone: 0800166789, P.O.Box: 9815, Kampala.
There may be situations where we cannot grant your request for example, if you ask us to delete your transaction data and Vision Group is legally obligated to keep a record of that transaction to comply with law. We may also decline to grant a request where doing so would undermine our legitimate use of data for anti- fraud and security purposes, such as when you request deletion of an account that is being investigated for security concerns. Other reasons your privacy request may be denied are if it jeopardises the privacy of others, is frivolous or vexatious, or would be extremely impractical.
