This Data Protection Privacy Notice (“Notice”) sets out the basis which Ace Cardiology Clinic (“we”, “us”, or
“our”) may collect, use, disclose or otherwise process your personal data in accordance with the Singapore
Personal Data Protection Act 2012 (“PDPA”). This Notice 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.

"Personal Data" refers to any data, whether true or not, about an individual who can be identified

- 3. Other terms used in this Notice shall have the meanings given to them in the PDPA (where the context so permits).
COLLECTION, USE AND DISCLOSURE OF PERSONAL DATA
We generally do not collect your personal data unless (a) it is provided to us voluntarily by you
directly or via a third party who has been duly authorised by you to disclose your personal data to us
(your “authorised representative”) after (i) you (or your authorised representative) have been
notified of the purposes for which the data is collected, and (ii) you (or your authorised
representative) have provided written consent to the collection and usage of your personal data for
those purposes, or (b) collection and use of personal data without consent is permitted or required by
the PDPA or other laws. We shall seek your consent before collecting any additional personal data and
before using your personal data for a purpose which has not been notified to you (except where
permitted or authorised by law).
- 5. We may collect and use your personal data for any or all of the following purposes:
(a) performing obligations in the course of or in connection with our provision of services requested by you;
(b) responding to, handling, and processing queries, requests, applications, complaints, and feedback from you; and
(c) any other incidental business purposes related to or in connection with the above.
- 6. We may disclose your personal data:
(a) where such disclosure is required for performing obligations in the course of or in connection with our provision of the services and/or goods requested by you; or
(b) to third party service providers, agents and other organisations we have engaged to perform any of the functions with reference to the above-mentioned purposes.
The purposes listed in the above clauses may continue to apply even in situations where your
relationship with us (for example, pursuant to a contract) has been terminated or altered in any way,
for a reasonable period thereafter (including, where applicable, a period to enable us to enforce our
rights under a contract with you).
WITHDRAWING YOUR CONSENT
The consent that you provide for the collection, use and disclosure of your personal data will remain
valid until such time it is being withdrawn by you in writing. You may withdraw consent and request us
to stop collecting, using and/or disclosing your personal data for any or all of the purposes listed
above by submitting your request in writing or via email to our Data Protection Officer at the contact
details provided below.
Upon receipt of your written request to withdraw your consent, we may require reasonable time
(depending on the complexity of the request and its impact on our relationship with you) for your
request to be processed and for us to notify you of the consequences of us acceding to the same,
including any legal consequences which may affect your rights and liabilities to us. In general, we
shall seek to process your request within thirty (30) business days of receiving it.
Whilst we respect your decision to withdraw your consent, please note that depending on the nature and
scope of your request, we may not be in a position to continue providing our goods or services to you
and we shall, in such circumstances, notify you before completing the processing of your request.
Should you decide to cancel your withdrawal of consent, please inform us in writing in the manner
described in clause 8 above.
Please note that withdrawing consent does not affect our right to continue to collect, use and disclose
personal data where such collection, use and disclose without consent is permitted or required under
ACCESS TO AND CORRECTION OF PERSONAL DATA
We will process your request to access your personal data in your possession in accordance with our policies and the access requirements of the PDPA. A fee may be charged for processing an access request.
Upon your request, we will correct your personal data as soon as practicable unless we have reasonable grounds to believe that a correction is not required.
PROTECTION OF PERSONAL DATA
To safeguard your personal data from unauthorised access, collection, use, disclosure, copying,
modification, disposal or similar risks, we have introduced appropriate administrative, physical and
technical measures such as minimised collection of personal data, encryption of data transmission,
up-to-date antivirus protection, and securely erase storage media in devices before disposal.
You should be aware, however, that no method of transmission over the Internet or method of electronic storage is completely secure. While security cannot be guaranteed, we strive to protect the security of your information and are constantly reviewing and enhancing our information security measures.
ACCURACY OF PERSONAL DATA
We generally rely on personal data provided by you (or your authorised representative). In order to
ensure that your personal data is current, complete and accurate, please update us if there are
changes to your personal data by informing our Data Protection Officer in writing or via email at the
contact details provided below.
RETENTION OF PERSONAL DATA
We may retain your personal data for as long as it is necessary to fulfil the purpose for which it was collected, or as required or permitted by applicable laws.
We will cease to retain your personal data, or remove the means by which the data can be associated with you, as soon as it is reasonable to assume that such retention no longer serves the purpose for which the personal data was collected, and is no longer necessary for legal or business purposes.
TRANSFERS OF PERSONAL DATA OUTSIDE OF SINGAPORE
We generally do not transfer your personal data to countries outside of Singapore. However, if we do so, we will take steps to ensure that your personal data continues to receive a standard of protection that is at least comparable to that provided under the PDPA.
