We use third party service providers to enable us to provide our Services to you. These third parties are only allowed access to your information as needed for the relevant element of the Services. They’re not allowed to use it for any other purpose.  Some of these third party companies are located, or have servers that are located outside of Singapore. Where we share your information with such companies, we take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure your information is treated securely and in accordance with this privacy policy.

Please note that the data protection and other laws of such countries may not be as comprehensive as those in Singapore. Therefore, we’ll only transfer your personal information to a third party outside of Singapore under the following circumstances:

We have put in place appropriate security measures to prevent your personal data from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorised way, altered or disclosed. In addition, we limit access to your personal data to those employees, agents, contractors and other third parties who have a business need to know. They will only process your personal data on our instructions and they are subject to a duty of confidentiality. 

Please note that you must keep your password confidential. If you have any concerns that your account, password or personal information has been put at risk, please contact us straight away.


Changes to our Business

If we decide to change or restructure our business we may need to pass your personal information to another company so we can continue to effectively deliver the products and services to you.

Also, if we become involved in a merger, acquisition, restructuring, reorganisation or other transaction involving the sale of some or all of our assets, then your information may be included in the assets that are transferred to the new owner and may be provided to the entities and advisors involved. Such a transaction could involve us: (i) retaining the right to continue to use transferred personal information in addition to the right of the new owner to use such information; and (ii) engaging in additional transfers of personal information (including new personal information) with the new owner from time to time following such a transaction.

If there are changes to our business (such as a re-organisation or restructuring), your personal information will remain subject to this privacy policy (as amended from time to time). However, where your personal information is transferred to a new owner following a merger or acquisition it may be subject to a different privacy policy. We, or the new owner, will provide notice to you before any of your personal information becomes subject to a different privacy policy.

How long do we keep your information?

We keep your information for only as long as necessary. The length of this retention period depends on the purpose for which the data was obtained and its nature. For example: 

  • We need to keep some information about you so we can deal with any complaints you might make about the services we provide to you;


  • If you ask us to stop sending you marketing material, we need to keep some information to ensure we don’t send you further marketing;


  • We have a legal or regulatory duty to retain information (for example, under accounting or tax rules);


  • We need to keep information so we can defend possible future legal claims. Unless there’s some other reason for keeping it, we will delete information when such a claim could no longer arise or it is no longer required to defend legal claims.

We may keep aggregated data (which does not identify you) beyond these periods.

We will advise you if this is the case at the time you withdraw your consent.


  • Make a complaint. You have the right to make a complaint at any time to the Personal Data Protection Commission (PDPC), Singapore’s supervisory authority for data protection issues ( We would, however, appreciate the chance to deal with your concerns before you approach the PDPC so we do suggest that you contact us in the first instance.
