Under the Personal Data Protection Act 2012 (PDPA), business contact information (e.g. full name, business address, business telephone number) is not considered as personal data so long as it is used strictly for business-to-business (B2B) transactions.
We collect your personal data when:
you request for us to contact you via telephone or email.
you enquire about our range of services
you provide feedback to us on our quality of service
We may rely on the Second Schedule exception of the Personal Data Protection Act to collect your personal data without consent under the following circumstances:
(a) Your personal data is publicly available. For instance, you enquire if we have a job vacancy and to learn more about you, we may access your personal information available on your social media public profile.

We may pass your personal data to third-party service providers, agents and other organisations we have engaged to perform any of the functions concerning the purposes mentioned above.
Except as set out above, we do not disclose your personal information unless we are obliged to do so or allowed to do so, by law, or where we need to do so to run our business (for instance where we outsource services or other organisations to process data for us).
In the event we need to disclose your personal data to third party, we will obtain your written consent prior to disclosing.
We may rely on Fourth Schedule exception of the Personal Data Protection Act to disclose your personal data without consent under the following circumstances:

HOW WE MANAGE THE COLLECTION, USE AND DISCLOSURE OF YOUR PERSONAL DATA
Before we collect, use or disclose your personal data, we will notify you of the purpose why we are doing so. We will obtain written confirmation from you on your expressed consent. We will not collect more personal data than is necessary for the stated purpose. We will seek fresh consent from you if the original purpose for the collection, use or disclosure of your personal data has changed.
We may rely on exceptions to the need for consent under the PDPA Second, Third and Fourth Schedule for the collection, use or disclosure of your personal data as stated in the preceding paragraphs
WITHDRAWAL OF CONSENT
The consent that you provide for the collection, use and disclosure of your personal data will remain valid until such time you are withdrawing it. If you wish to withdraw consent, you should write or email us. Please give us reasonable notice to process and notify you of the consequences of the withdrawal.
We shall seek to process your request within fourteen (14) business days of receiving it. Please note that withdrawing consent does not affect our right to continue to collect, use and disclose personal data where such collection, use and disclose without consent is permitted or required under applicable laws.
Individuals have choices regarding our collection, use or disclosure of your personal data. If you choose not to provide us with the personal data described in this notice, we may not be able to perform our obligations as stated in this notice.

We generally rely on personal data provided by you (or your authorised representative). To ensure that your personal data is current, complete and accurate, please update us in writing or via email if there are changes to your personal data.
HOW WE PROTECT YOUR PERSONAL DATA
To safeguard your personal data from unauthorised access, collection, use, disclosure, copying, modification, disposal or similar risks, we have introduced appropriate administrative, physical and technical measures such as up-to-date antivirus protection, and disclosing personal data both internally and to our authorised third-party service providers and agents only on a need-to-know basis.
You should be aware, however, that no method of transmission over the Internet or method of electronic storage is completely secure. While security cannot be guaranteed, we strive to protect the security of your information and are constantly reviewing and enhancing our information security measures.
HOW WE RETAIN YOUR PERSONAL DATA
We may retain your personal data for as long as it is necessary to fulfil the purpose for which it was collected, or as required or permitted by applicable laws.
We will cease to retain your personal data or remove how the data can be associated with you, as soon as it is reasonable to assume that such retention no longer serves the purpose for which the personal data was collected, and is no longer necessary for legal or business purposes.
