Data Protection & Privacy Policy

 

1. Introduction

BDO Singapore1 respects the privacy and confidentiality of prospects and clients’ personal data as well as visitors’ personal data collected.  We are committed to implementing policies, practices and processes to safeguard the collection, use and disclosure of the personal data you provide us, in compliance with the Personal Data Protection Act (2012) (“PDPA”).  If you reside in the UK or Europe, we will comply with the General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) (EU) 2016/679 in processing and holding your personal data.

By providing your personal data to us, you acknowledge and agree that you have fully read and understood this policy, and are consenting to the collection, use, processing and disclosure of your personal data as described in this policy. 

 

1.1 Compliance with Personal Data Protection Act and General Data Protection  Regulation

We will first and foremost comply with the PDPA and any applicable Singapore law.  With regards to personal data of individuals residing in the UK or Europe (hereinafter referred to as “European personal data”), where there is no applicable Singapore law, the European personal data will be processed in accordance with the GDPR.  Where Singapore law requires a higher level of protection for European personal data than is provided for in the GDPR, the higher level of protection will take precedence and be applied to the processing of European personal data.  We will ensure that complying with the GDPR does not conflict with the PDPA and the applicable Singapore data protection laws.

We have developed this Data Protection & Privacy Policy to assist you in understanding how we collect, use, disclose, process and retain your personal data.

This policy supplements but does not supersede nor replace any other consent you may have previously provided to BDO Singapore in respect of your personal data.
