Quickla is getting personal permission like contact number using the devised used in applying for loan.  These contact numbers were not provided during the application and i believe that this action will violate the data privacy act, not only by the person who was involved with lending app but also, to the person they contacted by getting their information with their permission. Please do immediate action on this, please.
