Privacy Policy

November 3, 2023

In compliance with the Personal Data Privacy Act, No. 9 of 2022, this Personal Data Protection Policy sets out the basis on which [name of organization] ("we," "us," or "our") may gather, use, disclose, or otherwise treat the “personal data” of our clients. This policy applies to any personal information that we may have or that we have control over, including information held by companies that we have hired to gather, use, disclose, or process information about individuals for our benefit.

As used in this policy,

“Personal data” means any information that can be used to directly or indirectly identify a data subject. A person's name does not have to be present for data to be considered personal data under the Personal Data Privacy Act, No. 9 of 2022. 

"Data subject” is a live or deceased natural person to whom personal data pertains and who may already be directly or indirectly identified or identifiable by reference to any personal data. Therefore, information on businesses or other legal entities is not included in the definition of a data subject.

“Processing” includes any actions taken on personal data, including gathering, storing, protecting, modifying, retrieving, disclosing, transmitting, making accessible, erasing, and destroying information, as well as consulting, aligning, combining, and performing mathematical or logical calculations.

“Consent” is defined as a freely provided, explicit, informed, and clear statement of acceptance of processing that is either in writing or by an affirmative action taken by the data subject.


We do not collect your personal information unless you voluntarily provide it to us with your consent. Consent should be freely provided, explicit, informed, and unequivocal, expressed in writing or by affirmative action, and it is reversible at any moment.

Some forms of personal data that we may collect from you depend on the nature of our interactions with you. These include your name and identifying information like your NIC number, contact details like your address, email address, or phone number, nationality, gender, marital status, date of birth, and other audiovisual materials, job details, financial details like credit card numbers, and other details like information about bank accounts or debit card numbers.

We may collect your information

  1. Directly from you;
  2. From Email messages;
  3. From Telecommunications;
  4. From our website, where you create a profile for yourself;
  5. When you submit a query via our website;
  6. From resources such as websites where your information is publicly available;
  7. Provided by the third party.

Your information may be gathered and utilized by us for any or all of the following purposes:

  1. verifying your identity;
  2. performing responsibilities during or related to our supply of the products or services that you have requested;
  3. responding, managing, and processing your requests, complaints, applications, and comments; 
  4. Processing payments or credit transactions;
  5. providing you with marketing materials about our products or services, such as alerts about upcoming events, campaigns, newsletters, promotions, giveaways, membership and reward programs, and other special offers;
  6. any other scenarios in which you provided the information; 

you can decide not to receive any further marketing material from us or unsubscribe from mailing lists and registrations. You may contact us in this regard.

To ensure that any processing of personal data is "lawful," we make sure that it is based on the most suitable legal basis among the ones listed below, as stipulated by the Personal Data Privacy Act, No. 9 of 2022:

  1. consent of the data subject;
  2. required for completing a contract or initiating a contract with the data subject;
  3. necessary for fulfilling a legal requirement that Sri Lankan law subjects us (the controller or processor) to;
  4. If it’s necessary to deal with an emergency that threatens the data subject's life, health, or safety or the safety of another natural person,
  5. Or necessary for the controller's or a third party's legitimate interests (subject to an assessment where the controller's interests should be balanced against the rights of the data subjects and accordingly, must not override the interests of the data subjects, especially when the data subject is a child); or necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or the exercise of powers, functions, or duties imposed under Sri Lankan law.


We do not disclose personal information to third parties unless we are compelled to by law, have the person's consent, or have hired third parties like data intermediaries or subcontractors expressly to help with our business's operations.  Any such third parties that we work with will have a legal obligation to maintain the privacy of any information.


We only collect data that is necessary to provide the service and store it in an anonymized way in our system. We maintain all procedural safeguards and implement well-recognized standards to prevent the unauthorized or unlawful processing of personal data and the loss, destruction, or damage of personal data.


This policy likewise covers any personal information we collect via our websites. Our websites may employ cookies."Cookies" are small text files that are stored on your device and help us deliver a more personalized online experience. We use cookies to recognize your browser or device, learn more about your interests, and improve users’ navigations.

If you do not want the cookies to be stored in your devices, you can decline the cookies or set your preferences on cookies you would like to allow and If you wish to remove previously stored cookies, you can delete the cookies anytime.


We ensure that any personal information that is processed will only be retained in a format that allows you to be identified for as long as it may be needed to achieve the objectives for which the information is being processed.

However, we may retain personal information for extended periods if it is processed further for statistical analysis, scientific study, historical research, or public archiving.
