What is Personal Data?
Definition: Personal Data refers to data, whether true or not, about an individual who can be identified from that data; or from that data and other information to which the organization has or is likely to have access e.g. full name, mobile number, photograph, thumbprint, etc
The Personal Data Protection Act (PDPA) - a law passed in Singapore that comprises various rules governing the collection, use, disclosure and care of your personal data. The PDPA also provides the establishment of the Do Not Call (DNC) Registry that allows you to opt out of unsolicited telemarketing messages.
The Personal Data Protection Commission (PDPC) - the government agency that administers and enforces the personal data protection law and the DNC Registry in Singapore. We either obtains consent from individuals to send them marketing messages through their telephone or mobile phone numbers or check the Do Not Call (DNC) Registry prior to conducting telemarketing activities for individuals they do not have consent for.
We have 9 Data Protection (DP) obligations in total. We will describe each to you.
Consent Obligation - We obtain consent from individuals before the collection, use or disclosure of their personal data. SAM★INK® also allows the withdrawal of consent by individuals.
Purpose Limitation Obligation - We can use the personal data collected only for reasonable and appropriate purposes.
Notification Obligation - We must notify individuals of the purpose for which their personal data will be collected, used or disclosed.
- Access and Correction Obligation - We provides access to the individual's personal data upon request. SAM★INK® also allows correction of personal data that is being held.
- Accuracy Obligation - We make reasonable efforts to ensure that personal data collected is accurate and complete if it is to be used to make a decision that affects the individual, or disclosed to another organization.
- Protection Obligation - We protect personal data in its possession by making reasonable security arrangements.
- Retention Limitation Obligation - We do not retain personal data when no longer necessary/ no longer serves the intended purpose.
- Transfer Limitation Obligation - We ensure that the standard of protection for personal data overseas is comparable to those under the PDPA.
- Openness Obligation - We designate the Director as a Data Protection Officer (DPO) and make information about its policies and processes available on request.
It has been more than 10 years since we first introduced practices to meet the Data Protection obligations. We appoint the Director to be responsible for managing the organization's data protection practices, as well as responding to queries from the public, such as a Data Protection Officer. SAM★INK®:

- has alternative online platforms for individuals to share their data protection concerns, we would use the platform to explain and clarify the concerns of the individuals.
If an individual lodges a complaint on personal data breach and if both are unable to resolve the matter directly, the PDPC may refer the matter for mediation by a qualified mediator for a nominal fee. The PDPC will only do so if both the individual and SAM★INK® agree that the matter is to be referred to mediation. The PDPC will generally not proceed with further investigations if the matter is resolved amicably. In the event when data protection disputes cannot be resolved with an individual, we will be willing to resolve them through an independent mediator, instead of an investigation initiated by the PDPC.
The PDPA is beneficial for consumers. The PDPA is beneficial for SAM★INK®. The benefits derived from complying with the PDPA outweigh the cost of compliance in the long run. The PDPC has been effective in enforcing the law. The PDPA will help to strengthen Singapore's position as a trusted hub and choice location for data hosting and management activities.
