How You Can Limit Processing of Personal Data

  • Withdrawal of Consent

    If you wish to withdraw consent, you should give us reasonable advance notice. You have to be aware, though, of the likely consequences of your withdrawal of consent, e.g. without your personal contact information we may not be able to inform you of future services offered by CES Group.

    Your request for withdrawal of consent can take the form of an email or letter to us, or through the “UNSUB” feature in an online service.

How You Can Access and Make Correction to Your Personal Data

You may write in to us, based on reasonable grounds, to find out how we have been using or disclosing your personal data.

Before we accede to your request, we may need to verify your identity by checking your NRIC or other legal identification document.

We will endeavour to fulfil your request within 30 days, with an estimate of the fee for processing the request, if applicable. If we are not able to do so within 30 days, we will notify you of the additional time required.

How We Ensure the Accuracy of Your Personal Data

External data intermediaries who process and maintain your personal data on our behalf will be bound by contractual information security arrangements we have with them.
