    5. We will not share any of your personal data with any third parties for any purposes other than storage on an email server presently located in the US and a web hosting server presently located in Singapore (but see clause 7 below).
  7. How and Where Do We Store Your Data?

    1. We will usually store your personal data in Singapore or other countries where we conduct business with you, but we may also use the services of cloud service providers in multiple locations. Wherever stored, it will be fully protected under the data protection legislation and other applicable laws of the place where we conduct business. Unless otherwise specified, TEC will retain only your personal data and for the duration that is necessary to achieve the purposes detailed above and to comply with the applicable laws and regulations. Your personal data will remain accessible to you at any time after you have provided it for the purposes set out herein.
    2. Personal data security is essential to us and to protect personal data, we take the following measures:

      1. limiting access to your personal data to those employees, agents, contractors, and other third parties with a legitimate need to know and ensuring that they are subject to duties of confidentiality;
      2. procedures for dealing with data breaches (the accidental or unlawful destruction, loss, alteration, unauthorised disclosure of, or access to, your personal data) include notifying you and/or the relevant supervisory authority for your jurisdiction if we are legally required to do so; and

    1. We will not share any of your personal data with any third parties without your consent for any purposes, subject to the following exceptions.
    2. If we sell, transfer, or merge parts of our business or assets, your personal data may be transferred to a third party. Any new owner of our business may continue to use your personal data in the same way that we have used it, as specified in this Policy (i.e., to communicate with you).
    3. In some limited circumstances, we may be legally required to share certain personal data, which might include yours, if we are involved in legal proceedings or complying with legal obligations, a court order, or the instructions of a government authority.
      1. If you agree to initiate a service contract with us, you thereby authorise us to share your personal information (or such part of it as you decide to share) with other members in our community and this information will consist of the data referred to in 8.4.3 below. Such sharing would typically be for the purpose of facilitating general networking.
      2. Your personal data, other than your billing address and credit card data, will be collected when you finalise your contracts with us and will be viewable by you (but not other users) on the MyTEC Portal, the TEC Mobile App and the WeChat Mini-Program.
      3. Other users of the TEC Digital Platforms (except for Our Site) will be able to view some of your personal data in the TEC online directory, such data being restricted to your name, title, description, business logo, picture and business location (plus any other data that you may voluntarily provide for viewing by other users). You will be able to opt out of participation in the online directory at any time if you wish to withhold your personal information from other members.
      4. You may initiate communication with other users (both companies and individuals) on an anonymous basis by using the viewable online directory but, for such purpose, you will not have access to any contact details such as telephone numbers or email addresses.
    4. We may also share personal information with relevant existing members if, for example, an employee of a member reserves or occupies office space provided by us and it becomes necessary to verify the employee’s status by contacting the employer.
  9. How Can You Access Your Personal Data?

    1. If you want to know what personal data we have about you, you can ask us for details of that personal data and for a copy of it (where any such personal data is held). This is known as a “subject access request”.
    2. All subject access requests should be made in writing and sent to the email or postal addresses shown in Part 10. To make this as easy as possible for you, a subject access request form is available on request for you to use. You do not have to use this form, but it is the easiest way to tell us everything we need to know to respond to your request as quickly as possible.
    3. There is not normally any charge for a subject access request. If your request is manifestly unfounded or excessive (for example, if you make repetitive requests) a fee may be charged to cover our administrative costs in responding.
    4. We will respond to your subject access request within a period of less than one month and, in any case, not more than one month from the date of receiving it. Normally, we aim to provide a complete response, including a copy of your personal data, within that time. In some cases, however, particularly if your request is more complex, more time may be required up to a maximum of three months from the date we receive your request. You will be kept fully informed of our progress.
