This Personal Data Protection Policy ("Policy") sets out the ways in which the Singapore Academy of Law (“SAL”) collects, uses, discloses and retains personal information in order to carry out our activities and operations; and the measures we take to protect your personal information. The Policy is designed to meet the requirements of Singapore’s personal data protection laws.
Application of Policy
When you become a member of SAL, you agree to the terms of this Policy as updated from time to time. This Policy applies to all SAL members, non-members, customers and content providers. From time to time, SAL will update this Policy to ensure that this Policy is consistent with any changes in legal requirements. You are encouraged to periodically review this Policy to be informed of how SAL is protecting your information.
Our Policy applies to personal information that SAL collects, uses and discloses in order to carry out SAL’s activities and operations; and to enable you to access our website and online service portals. Personal information is any information that can identify an individual or information about an identifiable individual, such as an individual’s home address, telephone number, or a member’s transaction activity in relation to SAL activities. When a member registers for an SAL event, we collect identifying information, such as (but not limited to) the member’s name, address, telephone number, email address, NRIC number. To process payment, a member may provide us with their credit card number and expiry date. When a member applies for membership, we are required to collect information such as the member’s date of birth, nationality, qualification received and employment history.
Much of the personal information we collect comes from you, such as when you apply for membership, register for SAL’s activities or purchase goods and services from SAL. We collect personal information, unless such is prohibited by legislation, when you contact us, register with us or when you require our services.
SAL collects and uses your personal information to operate SAL’s website, deliver the goods and/or services you have requested, and to administer SAL’s activities. SAL also uses your personally identifiable information to inform you of products or services available from the SAL group*. SAL may also contact you via surveys to conduct research about your opinion of current services or of potential new services that may be offered.
The Singapore Academy of Law protects your personal information from unauthorised access, use or disclosure. SAL stores the personally identifiable information you provide on computer servers in a controlled, secure environment, protected from unauthorised access, use or disclosure. SAL will not share your personal information with third parties without your permission, except if required by law or a court order to do so.
The collection and handling of certain personal information is necessary to maintain your membership and/or for processing transactions. You may, however, opt out of the collection and/or handling of your personal information for other purposes — including opting out of receiving marketing and promotional material from the SAL group*. You can do so at any time by choosing to unsubscribe from electronically-received publications, or by contacting us at (65)6332-4384, fax (65)6333-9747. You may also log in to the SAL online portal to modify your preference as to whether or not to receive e-mail newsletters from SAL. If you opt out as mentioned above, you will no longer receive any communications from SAL in relation to these marketing and promotional offers but you will continue to receive communications from SAL relating to your membership obligations and rights.
We rely on you to ensure that your profile and contact information is accurate. Please let us know of any changes to your personal information. You may update the accuracy or completeness of such information, and request that corrections be made to it. Please send all your enquiries, requests and notifications to firstname.lastname@example.org.
