Who has access to my information?

Isn’t it illegal to collect my information without my consent?

No it’s not. The law (Kenya Private Security Regulation Act 13 of 2016, Section 48) allows us to collect your information for identification purposes. Furthermore, what we are doing is not different from the regular visitor book. We only use technology to ensure that the information we collect is secure and of better value.

 

What is my data used for?

Just like the regular visitors’ book,  we record your information strictly for identification purposes only. It will be used to know who is on site in case of an emergency or if a security incident occurs.
