GMA Network, Inc. and its subsidiaries (collectively, the “GMA Group”, “we”, “us”, or “our”), respect and protect the privacy of our data subjects (i.e. employees, talents, customers, suppliers, advertisers, service providers and other stakeholders) in accordance with Republic Act No. 10173, or the Data Privacy Act of 2012, and its Implementing Rules and Regulations.
COLLECTION OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
We may collect PI that is provided to us voluntarily when you participate in or attend any of our events or promotions, respond to our surveys, create or modify your accounts in our website or applications, contact customer support, apply for a job, enter into any contract or otherwise communicate or interact with us. We may also use software tools and other forms of data collection technology to automatically collect information that can be retrieved from publicly disclosed internet data, social media sites and web applications.
USE AND SHARING OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
PI we collect is used for ordinary business processes and to provide you with our “GMA Serbisyong Totoo” quality of service such as:
- keeping you informed of our events or promotions;
- marketing and customer profiling activities in connection with our products or services;
- internal record keeping;
- providing customer support;
- processing employment application with us;
- responding to any communication you send us; or
- other purposes in furtherance of the foregoing.
We may provide and share your PI with our business partners, advertisers, vendors and other service providers who need access to such information. These partners, advertisers, vendors and other service providers are bound to us by a non-disclosure agreement that prohibits them from using your PI for any purpose other than fulfilling their obligations to GMA Group.
DISCLOSURE OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
Your PI will not be disclosed without your express or implied consent. You may ask us to stop collecting, using and disclosing your PI at any time. Your PI may be disclosed if required by law, in the event of a corporate merger or acquisition, or if needed to be accessed as part of an investigation into technical problems or misuse.
RETENTION AND DISPOSAL OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
Your PI shall be retained only for such period as necessary to serve the purpose for which it was collected, or as required under any contract or by applicable law. Thereafter, your PI shall be disposed in a secure manner that would prevent further processing, unauthorized access or disclosure to any other party.
PERSONAL INFORMATION OF MINORS
We seek parental or legal guardian’s consent before collecting, using, or disclosing PI of minors. Parents or legal guardians may contact us to ask if we have collected the PI of their child/ward, and to request that we stop collecting the PI and have it deleted. Such requests are subject to our satisfactory verification that the requestor is in fact the parent or legal guardian.

While we are putting all our efforts in safeguarding your PI, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
