Data Protection Statement
This Data Protection Statement sets out how the
Department of Student Development and Alumni Relations (SA) uses and
protects any information that you give to the Singapore Polytechnic, to
demonstrate our firm commitment to protect alumni information.
Should we ask you to provide certain information, you can be assured
that it will only be used in accordance with this statement.
SA reserves the right to change this Data Protection Statement from time to time by updating this page.
What we do with the information we gather
Your alumni record includes the information you provided as a
student. This information is only updated if you provide it voluntarily.
The data is kept indefinitely. Any information submitted by an
individual to DSA may be used to update that individual’s record.
The alumni data collected is limited to what is necessary to
facilitate the carrying out of activities by SP as your alma mater. It
will be kept confidential and will be used strictly for SP alumni
engagement programs. We may share necessary data with other Government
agencies, so as to serve you in a most efficient and effective way,
unless such sharing is prohibited by law. We will NOT share your
personal data with non-Government entities, except where such entities
have been authorised to carry out specific Government services.
SP recognises the importance of safeguarding personal information. SP
has put in place appropriate physical, technical and administrative
procedures to minimize the risk of unauthorized access to alumni data,
to maintain data accuracy and to ensure the appropriate use of
Accessing and Correcting Your Personal Information
If you believe that any information we are holding on you is incorrect or incomplete, please update your personal information here. We will correct any information found to be incorrect within 4 weeks.
Opting Out of Communications
To opt out of receiving communications on SP alumni news and information, please download and fill in this opt-out form and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note that this process may take up to 4 weeks to take effect.
Please be aware that if you fully opt out, you will not receive all
SP alumni news and information. We plan to increasingly send
communications via email, so you may miss out on future notifications if
you fully opt out, e.g. event notifications.
Please note that your details will still be held on the alumni
database to facilitate disclosure of your personal information as
required by law in connection with judicial or administrative
proceedings, or in order to fulfil a statutory obligation.
We may still share necessary data with other non-Government entities to carry out specific Government services.
