Protection of Personal Data

Security measures
To protect personal data against unauthorised access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction, we employ a comprehensive suite of security measures, including but not limited to:

Access controls: We restrict access to Personal Data to authorised personnel based on their role and the necessity of accessing the information for legitimate business or operational reasons. Access is controlled through secure authentication mechanisms and monitored and logged to prevent unauthorised access.

Encryption: Personal Data stored and transmitted is encrypted using advanced encryption technologies. Encryption helps protect the data during storage and transmission over the internet, ensuring it remains secure and confidential.

Regular security assessments: Our security protocols and systems are regularly reviewed and updated to address emerging security threats and vulnerabilities. This includes conducting periodic security assessments and audits to evaluate the effectiveness of our data protection measures.

Data minimisation: We adhere to the principle of data minimisation, ensuring that only the necessary Personal Data for specific, legitimate purposes is collected, processed, and retained.

Employee training: All employees must undergo regular data protection and privacy training. This training ensures that our team is aware of their responsibilities in protecting Personal Data and understands the best practices and company policies related to data security.

Incident response plan: In the event of a data breach or security incident, we have an established incident response plan to address and mitigate the impact on Personal Data promptly. Affected individuals and relevant authorities will be notified following legal requirements and our commitment to transparency.

Retention Period

Personal Data collected from Visitors will be retained for up to 12 months from the date of their last interaction. This includes, but is not limited to, data collected through website visits, inquiries, or any form of casual engagement that does not result in Membership or a business relationship per the General Terms and Conditions.

Personal Data collected from Members will be retained for 5 years following the conclusion of the most recent business transaction. Retaining Members’ Personal Data for this duration supports our ability to maintain accurate records for financial auditing, legal obligations and to resolve any disputes or claims that may arise post-transaction. Upon the expiration of the 5 years, the data will be securely deleted or anonymised unless specific legal requirements mandate further retention.

Upon reaching the end of the retention period, personal data will be securely deleted or anonymised to prevent its reconstruction or retrieval. The Company employs industry-standard data deletion and anonymisation techniques, ensuring the permanent removal of Personal Data from our records.

Transfer of Personal Data outside of Singapore

We operate globally, engaging with service providers and utilising data processing facilities in various countries to deliver our services efficiently. Specifically, our primary service providers are located in the United Kingdom, Europe, and the United States of America. As a result, the personal data we collect may be processed and stored in these jurisdictions.

We are committed to ensuring that all personal data processed or stored outside Singapore is handled with the utmost care and per data protection standards that are parallel to or exceed, those provided under Singaporean law. Our approach to international data transfers includes:

Selecting reputable service providers: We carefully select service providers based on their compliance with international data protection laws and standards. This ensures that your Personal Data is processed in a manner that offers a level of security and privacy protection comparable to that of Singapore.

Legal frameworks and safeguards: We transfer personal data across borders in compliance with applicable legal frameworks, such as the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the UK’s Data Protection Act, and the Privacy Shield framework for transfers to the USA, where applicable. We implement appropriate safeguards, including standard contractual clauses and data protection addendums, to ensure your Personal Data is protected adequately.

Regular review and monitoring: We regularly review the data protection practices of our service providers and the legal and regulatory changes in the countries where personal data may be processed or stored. This ongoing monitoring helps us maintain compliance with data protection obligations and adapt to any changes that could affect the privacy and security of your Personal Data.
