8. In relation to particular services or in your interactions with us, we may also have specifically notified you of other purposes for which we collect, use or disclose your Personal Data. If so, we will collect, use and disclose your Personal Data for these additional purposes as well, unless we have specifically notified you otherwise.

9. Our Sites may contain links to other sites and resources that are operated or provided by third parties with different privacy practices. We have no control over and do not take any responsibility for these third party websites and their Personal Data handling practices, and you are encouraged to review the Personal Data policies of websites you choose to visit which are linked from our Sites.

10. The use or disclosure by the Firm is necessary to accurately establish or verify the identities of the individuals to a high degree of fidelity. One of our activities is to provide education institutions with the service of issuing tamper-proof transcripts and certificates to their graduates. The education institutions that we may provide this service to have thousands of graduates receiving their transcripts and certificates every year. Such transcripts and certificates, other than containing Personal Data, will also contain other highly confidential information. The result of not verifying the identities of graduates to a high degree of fidelity may lead to the issuance of such highly confidential information to the wrong graduates hence posing a risk of significant personal impact to each affected graduate and significant reputational harm to the affected education institutions. The Firm, having accessed our specific situation, is of the view that, on balance, it is necessary to accurately establish or verify the identity of the individuals, being graduates from education institutions, to a high degree of fidelity.

11. The Firm may disclose your Personal Data in various ways including:

a. where such disclosure is required for performing obligations in the course of or in connection with our provision of the services requested by you;

b. if we believe that your actions are not consistent with our user policies and agreements, or to protect the property, safety, and rights of us or any third party;

c. to technical consultants, vendors, experts or other service providers whether located in Singapore or elsewhere who require access to such information to do work on our behalf;

d. to agents, contractors or third party service providers who provide technology solutions, support, operational or administrative services, such as for our online services, courier services, telecommunications, information technology, payment, payroll processing, training, market research, storage, archival, client support services;

e. in connection with professional indemnity policies, and to our professional advisers including auditors;

f. to any relevant authorities, including professional regulatory bodies and/or law enforcement agencies, whether local or overseas;

g. to the extent necessary to comply with any laws, regulations, rules, directions, guidelines and other similar requirements;

h. where permitted under law, external business and charity partners in relation to the Firm's promotional events and seminars;

i. in connection with, or during negotiations of, any sale, merger of company assets, acquisition or financing of a portion or all of our business to another company or individual;

j. disclose de-identified or aggregated information, which cannot reasonably be used to identify you;

k. at your direction or with your consent; and

l. any other party to whom you authorise us to disclose your Personal Data.

12. The purposes listed in the above clauses may continue to apply even in situations where your relationship with us (for example, pursuant to a contract) has been terminated or altered in any way, for a reasonable period thereafter (including, where applicable, a period to enable us to enforce our rights under any contract with you).

13. You further understand, acknowledge and agree that where you have engaged us to carry out any work in any jurisdictions outside Singapore, the transfer of your Personal Data records to these jurisdictions may be necessary to give effect to your instructions and that you request and consent to our so transmitting your, Personal Data outside Singapore. Personal Data may therefore be exported to, processed and accessed in countries whose laws provide a different level of protection, which may not necessarily be comparable to that provided in Singapore.


14. The consent that you provide for the collection, use and disclosure of your Personal Data will remain valid until such time it is being withdrawn by you in writing. You may withdraw consent and request us to stop using and/or disclosing your Personal Data for any or all of the purposes listed above by submitting your request in writing or via email to our Data Protection Officer at the contact details provided below.

15.

Should you decide to cancel your withdrawal of consent, please inform us in writing or via email to our Data Protection Officer at the contact details provided below.

16. 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.


17. 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, encryption and the use of privacy filters to secure all storage and transmission of Personal Data by us, and disclosing Personal Data both internally and to our authorised third party service providers and agents only on a need-to-know basis.

18. 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.


19. We generally rely on Personal Data provided by you (or your authorised representative). In order to ensure that your Personal Data is current, complete and accurate, please update us if there are changes to your Personal Data by informing our Data Protection Officer in writing or via email at the contact details provided below.


20. 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.

21. We will cease to retain your personal data, or remove the means by which 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.


22. Transfer of Personal Data to countries outside of your home country may be done. This includes data transfers to our KYC partners.

23. Personal Data transferred continues to receive a standard of protection.
