DATA PROTECTION POLICY
At SG Her Empowerment Limited (“SHE”), we make sure we protect the information you give us. We are committed to ensuring that the personal information provided by all of our visitors and donors is treated with respect, kept confidential and used solely for the purpose for which it is supplied. Below is our policy regarding the protection of visitors' and donors' personal data and information (the “Data Protection Policy” or “Policy”).
This Data Protection Policy is written in accordance with prevailing data protection legislation in Singapore, including but not limited to the Personal Data Protection Act 2012 (“PDPA”). It applies to personal data in our possession or under our control, including personal data in the possession of organisations which we have engaged to collect, use, disclose or process personal data for our purposes.
This Data Protection Policy sets out how SHE collects, uses and stores personal data via its website www.she.org.sg. It does not cover SHE’s presence on social media platforms, including but not limited to: Facebook, LinkedIn, and Instagram, which has been established in its own presence. In the context of these platforms, SHE is merely another user and hence the privacy policies and terms and conditions of these platforms would instead be applicable.
