Data Privacy: Operation “The Purge” to Commence December 30, 2018

In accordance with the Data Privacy Act of 2012 (R.A. 10173), Mensa Philippines shall be disposing of all inactive records and data, accumulated over 25 years of giving qualifying exams in its efforts to identify and foster the top two percent of Filipinos in terms of IQ.

The immediate result of this necessary recourse is that those who have qualified by taking the Mensa IQ test but have never joined Mensa, or have long been inactive, will be purged from the organization’s records if they have not been members for over five years. Once purged from the records, any person who has been inactive but wishes to become a member will have to retake the Mensa test.

Are you are one of those who have qualified and were invited to join our organization, but was not able to get around to joining? If so, let us know if you still plan to join Mensa Philippines so that we may assist you.  Kindly fill up our Data Preservation Form and we can verify your qualification.

We shall be disposing of all records and data of everyone who qualified but did not become a member and who haven’t contacted us for data preservation starting the 30th of December 2018.

Thank you,

Mensa Philippines.
