Singapore Adventurers' Club

Our Privacy Policy

Purpose

SAC shall comply with the Personal Data Protection Act (2012) with regard to its need to obtain and process certain information about its members, participants, volunteers, donors and other users to allow it to organise activities and events and to comply with its legal obligations to the government as a registered society.

We are committed to protecting the privacy of our members and participants and shall ensure that our processes for the collection, storage, access and destruction of personal information are in compliance with our legal obligations.

What we collect and why

SAC collects, stores and protects our member’s and participant’s personal information in order to organise adventurous and social activities for them. Your personal details will be kept confidential by SAC and its activity organisers.

We will only collect personal information related to activities necessary for us to plan, organise, execute and report these activities. This includes administrative and trip account purposes, statistical compilations for AGM and statutory reporting, financial record retention for income tax reporting, insurance coverage and audit purpose.

Activities and events held outside Singapore may require SAC to disclose personal data of participants for the purpose of buying travel tickets, obtaining insurance coverage, booking of accommodations, applying for travel visas and all other auxiliary acts pertaining to such activities and events to the relevant third parties. Your consent for such disclosure is obtained when you register for such an activity or event with the Club. The Club shall endeavour to provide these third parties adequate personal information and not more.

Sharing your information

Your information will not be disclosed without your permission unless the law requires it to be given to a designated person or authority, e.g. income tax department. Your consent is obtained when you first sign up as a member or register for an activity or event with SAC.

Your personal data will not be transferred to a country or territory outside Singapore except in accordance with the requirements prescribed under the PDPA.

We do not sell your information to any third party.

Keeping your information safe

We will store information securely and protect it from unauthorised access, use or disclosure. We will not keep it any longer than necessary and it will be disposed of securely. We will ensure that your personal information is relevant, accurate and up to date. We will endeavour to collect information directly from you, unless we are unable to do so, e.g. in an emergency. We will make every effort to confirm with you the information collected from another source, e.g. a family member, as soon as practicable.
