  12. Disclosing and/or complying with applicable laws or the requirements of any regulatory authority, government, statutory authority and industry associations. We reserve the right to collect, use or disclose your personal data if the collection, use or disclosure is required or authorised under the written law, even where you have exercised your right to withdraw your consent;
  13. Providing you with marketing, advertising and promotional information, which we believe may be of interest or benefit to you.

We will transfer your personal data to third parties only if it is reasonably required. Where permitted by law, we may transfer personal data to third parties outside of Singapore. Where your personal data is transferred to third parties outside Singapore, the third parties are required to provide a standard of protection to the transferred personal data that is comparable to the protection under the PDPA 2012. All third parties whether residing in or out of Singapore whom your personal data is disclosed to are required to act consistently with our Privacy Policy and practices. (Collectively the “Authorized Purposes”)

You may give your consent expressly or impliedly. You may withdraw your consent for us to collect, use or disclose your personal data, by giving us a written notice via email addressed to our Data Protection Officer at [email protected], so long as there are no legal or contractual restrictions preventing you from doing so.

If you withdraw your consent for us to use, collect or disclose your personal data for the above authorized purposes, it will affect or prohibit our ability to continue providing you with insurance coverage or to adequately process your claim and may result in a termination of your contract or policies you have with us.  Termination may be disadvantageous to you as you may lose valuable benefits from the policy.

You may withdraw consent that you have given to receiving marketing and/or promotional materials and information or update the mode of receiving such materials. The withdrawal of consent or the update of the mode will come into effect within 30 working days upon receipt and process of your Online Marketing Consent Form available on our website. 

We take reasonable precautions to protect your personal data from unauthorised access, collection, use, disclosure, copying, modification or disposal. Only authorised personnel have access to your data on a need-to-know basis and they must comply with our Privacy Policy and practices.

We will only keep your personal data for as long as it is needed for the purposes for which it was collected and as required for business or legal purposes. Once your personal data is no longer required for these purposes, we will destroy, erase or make anonymous the data.
