In certain jurisdictions, consent is the primary ground on which personal data may be processed by an organisation. In those jurisdictions, processing personal data in connection with the performance of a contract or legitimate purposes is not recognised as an accepted ground on which personal data may be processed. Accordingly, if you are a resident in such a jurisdiction, you agree that consent will be the ground on which we will process your personal data instead of performance of a contract or legitimate purposes.
Withdrawing consent or otherwise objecting to direct marketing
Wherever we rely on your consent, you will always be able to withdraw that consent, although we may have other legal grounds for processing your data for other purposes, such as those set out above. In some cases, we are able to send you direct marketing without your consent, where we rely on our legitimate interests. You have an absolute right to opt-out of direct marketing, or profiling we carry out for direct marketing, at any time. You can do this by following the instructions in the communication where this is an electronic message, or by contacting us using the details set out below.
Please note that even if you opt-out of receiving marketing communications, we may need to send you service-related communications such as confirmations of any future orders you may make.

We may disclose or transfer your personal data to other entities within the Singapore Technologies Engineering Ltd group of companies for the purposes set out above.
We may employ the services of a third party to help us in certain areas, such as payment processing, order delivery, website hosting, maintenance, call centre operation and identity checking. In some cases these third party may receive your personal data.
