How We Manage the Collection, Use and Disclosure of Your Personal Data
● Obtaining Consent
Before we collect, use or disclose your personal data, we will notify you of the purpose. We next obtain a confirmation from you on your expressed consent. As far as possible, we will not collect more personal data than necessary for the stated purposes within this notice.
Under certain circumstances, we may assume deemed consent from you when you voluntarily provide your personal data for the stated purpose, e.g. when you apply for an account with us.
Legitimate Interests: We may rely on the legitimate interests exception to consent in circumstances which are our organisation’s lawful interests. When we rely on this exception, we conduct an assessment as required under law and will provide such documented assessments to PDPC upon their request.
● Third-Party Consent
If you have a one-on-one meeting with us or do a transaction with us on behalf of another individual, you must first obtain consent from that individual in order for us to collect, use or disclose their personal data. Where consent can be obtained, that individual must be notified of the purposes for the collection, use or disclosure of their personal data.
● Withdrawal of Consent
The consent that you provide for the collection, use and disclosure of your personal data will remain valid until such time it is that withdrawn by you in writing.
If you wish to withdraw consent, you should give us reasonable advance notice. You have to be aware, though, of the likely consequences of your withdrawal of consent.
Depending on the type of personal contact information that you may request to withdraw, we may not be in a position to be able to continue providing you with our services, and will result in the termination of any supply agreement that you have with us. An Early Termination Fee may apply if you are still in an existing contract with us.
For marketing-related consent withdrawal, we may not be able to inform you of future services offered by us or our clients.
Your request for withdrawal of consent can take the form of an email or letter to us to our Data Protection Officer at the contact details provided below, or through the “UNSUBSCRIBE” feature (only for marketing-related consent withdrawals) on an online service.
Please note that the withdrawal of your consent does not affect our right to collect, use and disclose your personal data where it is permitted or required under applicable laws.
