Your duty to inform us of changes
It is important that the personal information we hold about you is accurate and current. Please keep us informed if your personal information changes during your relationship with us.
Your rights in connection with your personal information
Under certain circumstances, under applicable data protection law you have the right to:
- Request access to your personal information (commonly known as a “data subject access request”). This enables you to receive a copy of the personal information we hold about you and to check that we are lawfully Processing it.
- Request correction of the personal information that we hold about you. This enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate information we hold about you corrected.

No fee usually required
You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal information (or to exercise any of the other rights).

Alternatively, we may refuse to comply with the request in such circumstances.
What we may need from you
We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access the information (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is another appropriate security measure to ensure that personal information is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it.
Your right to withdraw consent

To withdraw your consent, please contact us via email at email@example.com or via the other methods set out above. Once we have received notification that you have withdrawn your consent, we will no longer Process your information for the purpose or purposes you originally agreed to that were withdrawn, unless we have another legitimate basis for doing so in law.
If you withdraw your consent to any or all Processing of your personal information, depending on the nature of your request, we may not be in a position to continue to provide our products and/or services to you, or administer any contractual relationship in place, which in turn may also result in the termination of any agreements with us, and your being in breach of your contractual obligations or undertakings. Our legal rights and remedies in such event are expressly reserved.
This privacy notice shall be governed in all respects by the laws of Singapore.
