If you do not wish for PAUSE to use your personal data or disclose your personal data for any of the above Purposes, you may withdraw your consent at any time by written notice to PAUSE, pursuant to the Personal Data Protection Act 2012, however, depending on the circumstances and the nature/extent of your withdrawal, your withdrawal of consent may result in PAUSE’s inability to provide you with the services and products and hence may result in the termination of your relationship and/ or membership account(s) with PAUSE or other consequences of a legal nature which may arise by virtue of your legal relationship with PAUSE.
To the extent that the applicable law allows, you may request access to, and correction of, your personal information. You acknowledge that some personal information may be exempt from such access and correction rights in accordance with local personal data protection laws. You may wish to contact PAUSE at firstname.lastname@example.org should you wish to request such access to, and/or correction of, your personal information. Kindly note that we will also be charging you a reasonable fee for the handling and processing of your requests to access and/or correct your personal data.
For the avoidance of doubt, in the event that Singapore’s personal data protection law permits an organization such as PAUSE to collect, use or disclose your personal data without your consent, such permission granted by the law shall continue to apply.
You agree that where your written permission is required by law or otherwise for any such disclosure by PAUSE, the online processing of the application form(s), membership account opening document(s), personal data consent form and/or other methods of consent notification (be it in electronic or written form), as well as in any other manner permitted by law shall constitute and be deemed to be sufficient written permission for such disclosure.
PAUSE’s rights under this clause shall be in addition to and without prejudice to PAUSE’s other rights of disclosures available pursuant or any other statutory provision and in law and nothing herein is to be construed as limiting any of these other rights.
