Upon receipt of the Access Request, Viriya Community Services shall provide the individual with the following information:
Viriya Community Services shall charge an administrative fee for the Access Request. This will be based on the incremental costs of responding to the Access Request and providing access to requested personal data.

Viriya Community Services will correct an error or omission and send the corrected personal data to every other organisation to which the personal data was disclosed by Viriya Community Services within a year before the correction, unless the other organisation does not need the corrected personal data for any legal or business purpose. The corrected data may be sent only to specific organisations to which the data was disclosed by Viriya Community Services, if the individual consents to it.
Where it is satisfied on reasonable grounds that a correction should not be made, Viriya Community Services shall not make the correction but will annotate the personal data in its possession or under its control with the correction that is requested but not made.
Viriya Community Services shall also not alter an opinion, including a professional or expert opinion, and exceptions from correction as listed in the Sixth Schedule of the PDPA.

The other local organisation shall ensure its compliance to the Personal Data Protection Act.
For the transfer of personal data overseas, Viriya Community Services shall include the use of contractual agreements with the organisations involved in the transfer to provide a comparable standard of protection overseas.
