DRAUGHTSMAN STUDIO PERSONAL DATA PROTECTION POLICY
1. Draughtsman Studio (“Draughtsman”) respects your privacy and understands that your personal data is important to you. This Draughtsman Personal Data Protection Policy sets out how Draughtsman complies with the provisions of the Personal Data Protection Act 2012 of Singapore (“the PDPA”).
2. This Personal Data Protection Policy applies to https://www.draughtsmanstudio.com/ and websites of Draughtsman’s affiliates, unless the websites of Draughtsman’s affiliates separately provide for their own respective personal data protection policies.
3. Draughtsman will post on its website at https://www.draughtsmanstudio.com/ any changes to this Personal Data Protection Policy with the effective date of the revised policy, so as to ensure that you are kept up to date on the way Draughtsman collects, uses and discloses your personal data.
(I) Existing Data
4. For the avoidance of doubt, Draughtsman will continue to use personal data that has been collected before the data protection provisions of the PDPA came into effect on 2 July 2014 for the purposes for which the personal data was collected, unless the individual has withdrawn consent. For personal data collected after 2 July 2014, Draughtsman will notify and obtain the individual’s consent to the collection, use and disclosure of his or her personal data.
(II) Purposes of Data Collection
5. As defined in the PDPA, “personal data” refers to data, whether true or not, about an individual who can be identified from that data; or from that data and other information to which the organisation has or is likely to have access. This includes unique identifiers (NRIC number, passport number) as well as any set of data (e.g. name, age, address, telephone number, occupation etc.), which when taken together would be able to identify the individual.
6. Draughtsman may from time to time collect personal data from individuals for purposes which include (but not limited to) the following:
6.1. Processing enquiries – if you make a Sales Enquiry or request for certain information, your personal data may be required; and
6.2. Processing job applications – if you apply for a job at Draughtsman or any of its worldwide offices, you will have to have provide your personal data.
7. When you interact with Draughtsman’s website, we may collect information on your IP address, your web browser and device, your interactions with Draughtsman’s website as well as your location information (broadly referred to as “usage data”). The collection of such usage data is for the purpose of allowing us to analyse the usage of our website so as to improve your online experience with us. However, such usage data does not cause an individual to be identified and is therefore not “personal data” for the purposes of the PDPA.
(III) Obtaining your Consent
8. Before we collect, use or disclose your personal data, we will notify you of the purpose and obtain your consent. Such consent will be validly obtained and may be either expressly given or deemed to have been given.
9. Each time an individual uses our website’s Sales Enquiry form and voluntarily provide his or her personal data, the individual is deemed to have consented to the collection, use or disclosure of his or her personal data by Draughtsman for such purpose. Draughtsman will not share with any unaffiliated third party any personal information the individual submits through its website, unless it is necessary to respond to the individual’s Sales Enquiry or to comply with applicable laws.
10. When an individual voluntarily provides his or her personal data to Draughtsman in the form of a job application, he or she may be deemed to consent to Draughtsman collecting, using and disclosing the personal data for the purpose of his or her job application. In the event that Draughtsman wishes to use the personal data for other purposes, Draughtsman will inform the job applicant of these purposes and obtain his consent, unless relevant exceptions under the PDPA applies. After Draughtsman decides which job applicant to hire, the personal data that Draughtsman has collected from other job applicants will only be kept for as long as it is necessary for business or legal purposes.
11. On giving reasonable notice to Draughtsman, an individual may at any time withdraw any consent given or deemed to have been given, in respect of the collection, use or disclosure by Draughtsman of personal data about the individual for any purpose.
(IV) Access and Correction of Personal Data
12. Under the PDPA, individuals have the right to obtain access and request corrections to their personal data held by organisations. As such, you have the right to check whether Draughtsman holds your personal data and request for access to such personal data (subject to the exceptions in the PDPA).
13. An individual may also request for Draughtsman to correct an error or omission in his or her personal data, upon which Draughtsman may correct the personal data as soon as reasonably practicable.
(V) Care of Personal Data
14. In accordance with its obligations under the PDPA, Draughtsman endeavours to ensure that personal data collected is accurate and complete and shall protect personal data in its possession or under its control by making reasonable security arrangements to prevent unauthorised access, collection, use, disclosure, copying, modification, disposal or similar risks. While every reasonable effort has been made to ensure that all personal data will be so protected, Draughtsman cannot be responsible for any unauthorized use of such personal data and risks which are inherent in all internet communications.
15. Draughtsman shall cease to retain personal data as soon as the purpose of collection is no longer served by the retention and when retention is no longer necessary for business or legal purposes.
(VI) Contacting Us
