We take the privacy of the information about visitors and customers of the BIC Singapore.com website (the "Site") for all users ("you") very seriously. Please read the following policy to understand how we treat your personal information when you use our Site.
Personally Identifiable Information
The server on which the Site is located collects and saves only the default information customarily logged by web server software. Such information may include the date and time of your visit, the originating IP address, the pages and images requested. For customers placing orders through the Site, we collect and store pertinent order information including name, address, phone, e-mail and credit card information.
We do not sell or ship any items ordered through the Site directly to anyone we know to be under the age of 18. If you are under the age of 18, you should use the Site only with the involvement of a parent or guardian and should not submit any personal information to us.
What we may do with Personal Identifiable Information
If you do provide us with your personal identifiable information, we may use it to improve our understanding of your interests and concerns. We will also use this information to process your order.
If you subscribe to our mailing list, we may use your information to occasionally contact you about changes to the Site, new products, site and service updates and special offers we think you'll find valuable. If you would rather not receive these e-mails, simply follow the unsubscribe instructions on the e-mail that you have received.
If you register and/or participate in any of our events, campaigns, contests or promotions, we may share your personal information with service providers, suppliers and other third parties (for example, event sponsors/organizer or delivery services) who work with us in operating the Site and/or executing the campaign, events, contest and/or promotions.
We may transfer your personal identifiable information to our associated companies or other companies with whom we contract outside Singapore, including the South East Asia, United States of America and European Economic Area. These companies may be located in countries with less stringent laws for protection of personal information than the laws binding the Republic of Singapore. We will, however, ensure that your personal information is kept confidential and secure, and that the appropriate technical and organizational measures to prevent unlawful or accidental destruction, accidental loss, unauthorized disclosure or access or other unlawful forms of processing are implemented.
We may share your information with our legally affiliated entities. In the event of any merger, or transfer of our assets, Site or operations, we may disclose or transfer your personal information in connection with such transaction. We will disclose personal identifiable information without your permission when required by law, or in good faith belief that such action is necessary to investigate or protect against suspected criminal activities to our customers, visitors, associates, or property (including this Site), or to others.
Anyone wishing to correct/update/delete information from our database should contact us at email@example.com. We will make reasonable efforts to service your request in a timely manner.
If you have elected previously to receive newsletters or promotional or marketing correspondence from us and later decide that you no longer wish to receive such correspondence from us in the future via e-mail or other mediums, please send an e-mail stating your intentions to firstname.lastname@example.org from the address you would like removed. Your election not to receive newsletters or promotional and marketing correspondence from us will not (a) preclude us from corresponding with you by e-mail or otherwise, regarding your existing or past relationship with us, and (b) preclude us, including our employees, contractors, agents and other representatives, from accessing and viewing your personal information in the course of maintaining and improving the Site.
Our Site contains areas where you can submit information to us (such as our registration service), and we also have features (such as cookies and performance tracking technology) that automatically collects information from the visitors to our Site.
