A. The Personal Data Protection Act
The Personal Data Protection Act (Act No. 12 of 2012) (“PDPA”) regulates the collection, use and disclosure of an individual’s personal data. The general rule laid out by the legislation is that personal data can only be collected, used and / or disclosed with the consent of the individual concerned.
The PDPA has been implemented in two stages. The Do Not Call (“DNC”) registry came into force on 2 January 2014. The remainder of the provisions, including those pertaining to the collection, use and disclosure of personal data, came into force on 2 July 2014.
B. Relevance Of This External Policy
The PDPA applies to all organisations, including voluntary welfare organisations such as BelaySAFE. It requires BelaySAFE to put into place practices and policies to meet the prescribed data protection standards. BelaySAFE is liable for all the acts committed by its employees and volunteers, unless reasonable steps have been taken by BelaySAFE to prevent these persons from violating the act.
This external policy therefore aims to inform the general public about how BelaySAFE complies with the PDPA. It also provides a set of practical steps that people may take to gain access to, or make corrections to their personal data provided to BelaySAFE. These steps also allow them to withdraw their consent to the collection, use or disclosure of their personal data.
C. Personal Data
In this Data Protection Policy (“Policy”) and under the PDPA, “personal data” refers to any data (whether true or not) about an individual who can be identified  from that data; or  from that data and other information to which we have or are likely to have access. Examples of such personal data may include a person’s:
- name, NRIC, passport or other identification number;
- date of birth;
- contact details such as telephone number(s), mailing address(es), and email address(es);
- education details;
- images, videos, and voice recordings;
- employment and financial details; or
- any other information relating to any individuals which may have been provided to BelaySAFE, in any form.
In this Policy, “we”, “us”, “our” refers to BelaySAFE, “you”, “your” or “yours” refers to the persons to whom this Policy applies.
