  46. Review and updation of Information

    • Since your Information would enable us to provide you the Services more efficiently, and the advice given by the medical practitioners who you consult is dependent largely on the Information that you provide, we recommend that you review and update / modify your Information at all points in time in order to ensure that it reflects true and accurate facts.

  49. Option to withdraw consent to collect Sensitive Personal Information

    • You may, at any time, withdraw the consent that you have given us to collect your Sensitive Personal Information, by deleting your account, in which event you will not be able to avail the Services provided in the Web Site.
    • To delete the account, you may send an email through your registered email id to support@medkumo.com, after which we would send you a verification code to your registered mobile number. On receiving such verification code, you are required to confirm the deletion request, either via email from the registered email id to support@medkumo.com by confirming the verification code or by replying to the message from the registered mobile number, and upon confirmation of the request for deletion, either from the registered email id or from the registered mobile number, the account would stand automatically deleted. This is to prevent accidental deletion of the medical records of a user. Further, it should be noted that once deleted, the past records cannot be retrieved and would stand deleted, once for all, from our system.
