DISCLOSURE OF DATA
Access to Services
Your user profile, actions and any information or data that you share publicly on the Website may be fully visible to all registered users of the Website. Subject to your settings, it can also be visible to others on and off of the Website (e.g. visitors to our Website or users of third-party search engines).
Subject to the group settings, information or data shared in a group will be visible to other registered users who are part of that group.
You should note that information that you share on the Website may also be shared by other registered users on platforms other than the Website and/or in contexts apart from the Services that are offered. For instance, registered users that you connect to or share information and data with can download, screenshot or otherwise reshare that content to others on the Website or off the Website, in person or online.
Affiliates and Service Providers
PGLC may use others to help us provide our Services (e.g., maintenance, analysis, audit, payments, fraud detection, marketing and development). They will have access to your information as reasonably necessary to perform these tasks on our behalf and are obligated not to disclose or use it for other purposes.
It is possible that PGLC will need to disclose information about you when required by law, subpoena, or other legal process or if we have a good faith belief that disclosure is reasonably necessary to:
investigate, prevent, or take action regarding suspected or actual illegal activities or to assist government enforcement agencies;
enforce our agreements with you;
investigate and defend ourselves against any third-party claims or allegations;
protect the security or integrity of our Service (such as by sharing with companies facing similar threats); or
exercise or protect the rights and safety of the Website, our registered users, personnel, or others.
PGLC may attempt to notify users about legal demands for their personal data when appropriate in our judgment, unless prohibited by law or court order or when the request is an emergency. We may dispute such demands when we believe, in our discretion, that the requests are overbroad, vague or lack proper authority, but we do not promise to challenge every demand.
In sharing your personal information with third parties, PGLC will endeavour to ensure that the third parties and our affiliates keep your personal information secure from unauthorised access, collection, use, disclosure, or similar risks and retain your personal information only for as long as they need your personal information to achieve the abovementioned purposes.
If any disclosure of your information involves the transfer of your personal information out of Singapore, PGLC will take steps to ensure that the receiving jurisdiction has in place a standard of protection accorded to personal information that is comparable to the protection under or up to Singapore’s data protection legislation.
ACCESS AND CONTROL OF DATA
PGLC offers settings to control and manage some aspects of the personal data that PGLC has about you
You may update any of your personal information we possess by means of updating and accessing your account details, and if not, then by contacting PGLC.
RETENTION OF DATA
PGLC retains your personal data while your account is in existence or as needed to provide you Services. This includes data you or others provided to us and data generated or inferred from your use of our Services. Even if you only use our Services periodically, we will retain your information and keep your profile open until you decide to close your account.
If you choose to close your account, your personal data will generally stop being visible to other registered users on our Services within [insert period, e.g. 24 hours]. PGLC generally deletes closed account information within [insert number] days of account closure, except as noted below:
Information you have shared with others will remain visible after you closed your account or deleted the information from your own profile or mailbox, and we do not control data that other users may copy out of our Services or from the Website. Any content associated with closed accounts will show an unknown user as the source. Your profile may continue to be displayed in the services of others (e.g., third party search engine results) until they refresh their cache.
PGLC may also choose to retain any of your current or deleted information and/or data in a depersonalised or aggregated form.
PGLC has implemented reasonable security arrangements including physical, administrative, technical, and electronic security measures to protect against the loss, misuse, and alteration of your personal information. Despite our best efforts, however, no security measures are perfect or impenetrable. You are advised that, should you choose to provide information or data to PGLC and/or the Website, the security of any information transmitted over the Internet cannot be guaranteed. In the event where you believe your privacy has been breached, please contact us immediately.
It is your responsibility to protect any passwords you require to access your account, the Website or its Services. Please use unique numbers, letters and special characters, and do not share your password with anyone. If you do share your password with others, you will be responsible for all actions taken in the name of your account and the consequences. If you lose control of your password, you may lose substantial control over your personal information and other information submitted to us. You could also be subject to legally binding actions taken on your behalf. Therefore, if your password has been compromised for any reason or if you have grounds to believe that your password has been compromised, you should immediately contact us and change your password.
You undertake to treat your password and other confidential information in relation to the use of the Website and its Services confidentially, and, to the furthest extent permissible by law, PGLC expressly disclaims any liability arising from your failure to do so.
