We make sure that we have an appropriate legal basis for processing your personal information. For the most part, the processing of your personal information is based on a) our contractual obligations with you, b) our legitimate business interests, or c) your consent, where requested.
HOW WE SHARE INFORMATION
We share your information within our group company and subsidiaries for the purposes set out above in this policy.
We use third-party service providers who perform services on our behalf, such as sending out email newsletters or hosting our customer relationship management and accounting data. We only disclose the information necessary to enable these service providers to perform their services. We require our service providers to maintain confidentiality and security of all personal information that they process on our behalf, and they are not permitted to use this information for any other purpose.
We may disclose personal information if we reasonably believe we are legally obliged to, or in order to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding suspected or actual unlawful or otherwise prohibited activities, such as hacking, misuse, or fraud.
In the event that we or any of our assets are the subject of an acquisition or similar corporate transaction, we reserve the right to transfer any information we have about you to the acquiring party.
HOW WE SECURE INFORMATION
We maintain appropriate organizational and technological safeguards to help keep your personal information disclosed to us secure, accurate, and up to date.
HOW WE RETAIN INFORMATION
We only retain personal information for as long as it is reasonably necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements.
HOW WE TRANSFER INFORMATION INTERNATIONALLY
We are a global company. We have subsidiaries in various countries in Asia, and we conduct business with customers and use service providers around the world. We transfer, process, and store your information where we or our service providers operate for the purpose of providing our services to you.
Some of the countries in which our companies or service providers are located may not have the privacy and data protection laws that are equivalent to those in the country in which you initially provided the information. Where the country to which your data is transferred has not been found to provide an adequate level of protection, we protect your information with appropriate safeguards, such as standard contractual clauses.
You have the following personal information rights, which we always work to uphold:
- Be informed of what we do with your personal information
- Request a copy of the personal information we hold about you
- Require us to correct any inaccuracy or error in any personal information we hold about you
- Request deletion of your personal information (please note, however, that we may not always be able to comply with your request for record keeping purposes, to complete transactions, or to comply with our legal obligations)
- Object to or restrict the processing of your personal information (including for marketing purposes)
- Request to receive some of your personal information in a structured, commonly used, and machine–readable format, and request that we transfer such information to another party
- Withdraw your consent at any time when we are relying on consent to process your personal information (although this will not affect the lawfulness of any processing carried out before you withdraw your consent).
As a security measure, we may need specific information from you to help us confirm your identity when processing your privacy requests or when you exercise your rights.
We will respond to all legitimate requests within one (1) month. Occasionally, it may take us longer than a month if your request is particularly complex or if you have made a number of requests. Any request will normally be addressed free of charge. However, we may charge a reasonable administration fee if your request is clearly unfounded, repetitive, or excessive.

If we become aware that an individual under 16 has provided us with personal information, we will take steps to delete such information. Contact us if you believe that we have mistakenly or unintentionally collected information from an individual under 16.
