Where such data has been sufficiently anonymised and no longer constitutes personal data, we may use such data for statistical, analytical or other purposes or disclose such data to other parties at our discretion.


Where personal data is sent to us in circumstances where we did not request for or expect the submission of the data (including situations where personal data sent to us includes specific items of data which we did not request for), we reserve the right to process the data in such manner and for such purposes as we reasonably consider appropriate in the circumstances, taking into account the purpose for which they were sent to us (if apparent to us).



Subject to any specific data protection notice we may give to you and the terms and conditions of any contract which may be agreed between us, if you provide any personal data to us, whether directly or indirectly through another party, you agree and consent to our collection, use and disclosure of such data in accordance with this SG Privacy Notice.

Upon receipt of your written request to withdraw your consent, we may require reasonable time (depending on the complexity of the request and its impact on our relationship with you) for your request to be processed and for us to notify you of the consequences of us acceding to the same, including any legal consequences which may affect your rights and liabilities to us. In the event you withdraw consent or deemed consent for the collection, use or disclosure of your personal data, we shall (subject to paragraph 3.4) cease to collect, use and/or disclose your personal data (within the scope of your withdrawal of consent), in which case we may not be in a position to continue providing the services which you had engaged us to provide.

You may, at any time, request to access your personal data in our possession, or enquire about the ways in which your personal data may have been used, disclosed, stored or processed by us for the past year.


You may also, at any time, request to correct any error or omission in your personal data records.

Depending on the nature of your request and subject to any contract or other terms and conditions agreed between us, we may impose a reasonable fee to provide access to the personal data you requested. In such an event, we shall inform you of the fee payable for your confirmation and acceptance prior to further processing your request.


5.1 Accuracy of Personal Data


We shall take reasonable steps to ensure personal data collected by us or on our behalf is accurate and complete if:

(a) it is likely to be used to make a decision that affects you; or

(b) it is likely to be disclosed to another organisation.


Where you or your organisation provides your personal data directly to us, we shall be entitled to assume that it is accurate and complete.

5.4 Transfer of Personal Data Outside Singapore


By providing us with your personal data, you understand and agree that your personal data may be transferred to servers located outside Singapore for processing by us, our affiliates and/or any other organisation which we may choose, in accordance with this SG Privacy Notice.

We and our third-party service providers, which include ad networks and analytics companies including Adobe Analytics, may use cookies, web beacons, and other tracking technologies to collect information about the computers or devices (including mobile devices) you use to access the Sites. Through these technologies, we may collect and analyze information including but not limited to: IP address; browser type; operating system; domain names; access times and duration of access; referring or exit pages; page views; unique device identifiers; and the type of device that you use. We use this information (including the information collected by our third-party service providers) for analytics (including to determine which portions of the Sites are used most frequently and what our users like/do not like), to assist in determining relevant advertising (both on and off the Sites), to evaluate the success of our advertising campaigns, to tailor content to your interests, and as otherwise described in this Notice.

6.2 IP addresses and information recorded by our web server


An IP address is an assigned number, similar to a telephone number, which allows your computer (or other electronic device) to connect to and communicate with websites over the Internet. It enables us to identify which organisations have visited this website. When you visit our website, our server may record your IP address together with the date, time and duration of your visit. This information does not enable us to identify you individually. We use this information to compile statistical data on the use of our website to track how users navigate through our site. We do this so we can evaluate and improve our site.

Please note that we do not currently meet the threshold applicability requirements of U.S. state privacy laws, including the California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”). If we meet those thresholds in the future, we will update this Notice to include applicable disclosures related thereto.



Without prejudice to an individual’s rights under the PDPA, nothing in this SG Privacy Notice shall create or confer any legally enforceable right whether by way of contract, tort, equity or otherwise under the law.
