NYSC Data Subject Consent Statement

NYSC Data Subject Consent Statement – Agree or Disagree

The NYSC data subject consent statement hit the dashboard of all Corps Members since midnight and it has been the talk of the moment.

At the end of the statement, each Corps Members must either agree or disagree to go to their profile. While lots of people have been asking questions, others are even yet to login to their Dashboard to see the statement.

I am going to show you the NYSC data subject statement below and then explain afterward. If you have seen this on your dashboard, just skip it but if you are yet to see it or read it or you want to read it again, read below. See also: NYSC 2020 Batch A Stream II Update & Introduction

DATA SUBJECT CONSENT STATEMENT

I hereby grant the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) and all its third-party processors authority to process my personal data for the purpose of; mobilization, deployment, relocation, posting, data rectification, processing allowances and benefits.

I give consent for my personal information to be used (if need be) for research, statistics and promotional activities.

I am aware this is necessary for the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) legitimate interest to process personal information.

I am aware I can find full description of what personal data the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) collects and the purpose for collection and processing on the official website of the National Youth Service Corps (www.nysc.gov.ng)

I am aware that I may withdraw my consent at any time by using the Data Subject Withdrawal Form.

I am aware that modification of my name, date of birth and other details are subject to NYSC policies/procedures on correction of data.

NYSC Data Subject Consent Statement

 

Explanation

I am going to explain in details and tell you 100% truth.

During the previous batches, there was a message on the NYSC dashboard asking Corps Members to give NYSC the permission to use their data for promotional purposes and other things. However, it was optional and this made a lot of people ignore the message.

Now, this same consent data is coming up on our login screen just that this time around, it’s indirectly mandatory. However, the most beautiful move by the management is that you can withdraw your data anytime you want. Probably after you are done with your NYSC.

Let me reveal a Top Level Secret to you all

Facebook and all these social media companies are very powerful because they have the data of all their users. Facebook have been sued severally for using the Data of its users for some research and other things and even election. They have our data, they know everything about us, and these data can be used for a lot of things.


Now imagine the National Youth Service Corps who have the full data of millions of Nigerians youths but they are only able to use for NYSC purpose alone.

They are not able to share it with third parties, they can’t use it for research, they can’t sell it, they can’t use it for promotion. They have so much data but have been unable to use for anything except NYSC purposes.

Right now, NYSC wants to go beyond by using your data for other purposes apart from NYSC but they need your consent to do so. See also: NYSC 2020 Batch A Stream I Details And Talks

Someone might want to ask what data are we talking about? That’s a good question. We are talking about everything about you and me. Your name, age, email, phone number, and more. Can you remember during NYSC registration? Can you remember all those details your provided, those are the data we are talking about.

The National Youth Service Corps have access and have those data but they are only using it for NYSC purpose. Now they want to use it for other purposes and they are asking for your consent to do so.

It will be illegal to do so without your consent. To be safe and avoid future occurrences, NYSC needs your permission to use your data.

Now that you understand what is going on, let me explain the statement in detail.

“I hereby grant the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) and all its third-party processors authority to process my personal data for the purpose of; mobilization, deployment, relocation, posting, data rectification, processing allowances and benefits.”

This statement above is exactly what the NYSC have been using our data for all these while. They already have permission to use our details for this and this is even the reason why we gave our data to NYSC in the first place.

It’s not really necessary to add this to the consent data again. They already have our permission to use the data we provided for posting, relocation, processing allowance and other NYSC stuffs.

“I give consent for my personal information to be used (if need be) for research, statistics and promotional activities.”

This is the main reason for this consent statement. The NYSC wants to start using our details for research, statistics and promotional activities. This means they can give out our data (Name, age, number, email and others) if need be to its third-party processor authority to be used for research, statistics and promotional activities.

Research, statistics and promotional activities are very big words with a lot of expansion. But one thing you should understand is that NYSC will never use your data for anything that can harm you in anyway. See also: FG Speaks On Reopening Of NYSC Orientation Camps

Another important thing worthy of note is this below:

“I am aware that I may withdraw my consent at any time by using the Data Subject Withdrawal Form.”

This means that there will be a withdrawal form that you can fill to stop NYSC from using your data for anything else.

Even if you agree right now, you can withdraw later. Maybe after your NYSC or anytime you wish to.

Should You Agree Or Disagree?

I’m not going to directly tell you what to do, however, I will advise you all to agree. You know why? Read this again below:

“I hereby grant the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) and all its third-party processors authority to process my personal data for the purpose of; mobilization, deployment, relocation, posting, data rectification, processing allowances and benefits.”

If you did not agree, that means you are not giving NYSC permission to use your data for mobilization, deployment, relocation, posting, data rectification, processing allowance, and benefits.

You wouldn’t want to deny NYSC this permission. If they don’t have the right to do all these listed above, that means there is no NYSC.

The reason why I will advise you to agree is because of this paragraph above and also because you can always withdraw your permission anytime you wish

Someone might want to ask what are the effects of your data being used. You might be getting promotional emails and text messages, you might find your details where you never registered or know. Your details might be used for registration somewhere for research purposes and all that. See also: A Corps Member Durodola Invents T-Smart Device To Fight Covid-19

Sincerely, you asked for the truth and that’s all the truth. However, you should also know that the National Youth Service Corps will never harm you or use your data for something that can harm you. NYSC loves you so much. Always remember that.

  1. Honestly this is of little importance if we aren’t allowed into camp.

  2. This is honestly of little importance to us right now if we aren’t allowed back to camp. Our lives are in pause because of some people’s incompetence and or lethargy

    I see this very remarkable, because NYSC is a governmental body that is authorised to regulate our educational priority in Nigeria. Therefore, hower, giving them our consent to use our data isn’t a bad move. This may also serve as a security to our personal data, provided the profiles are not shared illegally. Your empoyer can request NYSC for verification of your data without your notice to help claim your identity in case of furgery and other misfortune. I am giving them my consent because I believe NYSC is good enough to control and maintain our privacy (confidentiality). Thanks for your time and your good deeds.
