COLLECTION, USE AND DISCLOSURE OF PERSONAL DATA

7. 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.

8. Your personal data, including the information you provide for registration purposes, medical information and any other personal information provided by you or your next of kin will be collected when you present yourself for medical consultation, examination or treatment at our clinic. The voluntary provision of your personal data by you or your next of kin in order to obtain medical care will be deemed that you have consented to the collection, processing, disclosure and use of your personal data by us for the purposes directly related to the provision of medical care to you. This includes, but is not limited to, referrals to other healthcare professionals and institutions and other associated administrative purposes (e.g, billing).

9. When you seek care at other healthcare providers, we may share relevant data with them.

Should you decide to cancel your withdrawal of consent, please inform us in writing in the manner described in clause 8 above.

16. 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 applicable laws.

ACCESS TO AND CORRECTION OF PERSONAL DATA

17. If you wish to make (a) an access request for access to a copy of the personal data which we hold about you or information about the ways in which we use or disclose your personal data, or (b) a correction request to correct or update any of your personal data which we hold about you, you may submit your request in writing or via email to our Data Protection Officer at the contact details provided below.

24. 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.
