This policy informs you how TAL handles your Personal Data under the Personal Data Protection Act 2012 (Cap. 26) (“PDPA”). Under PDPA, Personal Data is defined as information about an individual who can be identified from that data; or from that data and other information to which the organisation has or is likely to have access.
TAL collects, uses or discloses Personal Data for reasonable business purposes only if there is consent or deemed consent from the individual and information on such purposes have been notified, or is required or allowed under applicable laws.
Specifically, if you choose to submit any information, report, dispute or claims or send us any email, you will be deemed to have provided explicit personal consent or, where applicable, obtained third party consent, to provide information, including Personal Data to TAL. You also provide personal or representative consent to this information disclosure by any or both of us to the following parties and to subsequent disclosure among same parties of any and all information including, without limitation, Personal Data that may have been possessed or collected in connection with your information, report, dispute or claims:

TAL collects your Personal Data through the following means:
We only collect, process, use or disclose such Personal Data, in accordance with this policy. If you are acting as an intermediary, or otherwise on behalf of a third party, or supply us with information regarding a third party, you undertake that you are an authorised representative or agent of such third party and that you have obtained consent from such third party to our collection, processing, use and disclosure of their Personal Data. Because we are collecting the third party’s data from you, you undertake to make the third party aware of all matters listed in this policy by referring them to our agencies’ website. Where applicable, for any third parties’ prior disclosure of your personal data, you shall also undertake that they were done so with your consent and authorisation.
The purposes listed in the above clauses may continue to apply even in situations where your relationship with us (for example, pursuant to a contract) has been terminated or altered in any way, for a reasonable period thereafter (including, where applicable, a period to enable us to enforce our rights under any contract with you).
TAL collects and uses your Personal Data for the following purposes:
If you are only browsing this website, we do not capture data that allows us to identify you individually.
TAL relies on you to ensure that your Personal Data provided is current, complete and accurate. For your convenience, we may display to you data you had previously supplied us. This will speed up the transaction and save you the trouble of repeating previous submissions. Should the data be out-of-date, please supply us with the latest data.
If your personal data has been provided to TAL by a third party (e.g. a referrer), you should contact that organisation or individual to make queries, complaints or access and correction requests to us on your behalf.
To protect your Personal Data, all electronic storage and transmission of Personal Data is access controlled and secured with appropriate security technologies such as up-to-date antivirus protection, encryption and the use of privacy filters to secure all storage and transmission of Personal Data by us, and disclosing Personal Data both internally and to our authorised third-party service agents only on a need-to-know basis.
Although every reasonable effort has been made to ensure that all Personal Data will be so protected, you should be aware that no method of transmission over the Internet or method of electronic storage is completely secure. While security cannot be guaranteed, we strive to protect the security of your information and are constantly reviewing and enhancing our information security measures.
You may refuse or withdraw your consent given, or deemed to have been given, for us to collect, use or disclose your Personal Data by giving us reasonable notice, in writing. Where you do so, this may affect our ability to provide our product or service to you. We will stop (and cause any of our TAL connected entities to stop) collecting, using or disclosing the Personal Data unless it is required or allowed under applicable laws.
TAL may update this Policy from time to time to reflect changes in law or business. TAL will keep your Personal Data for as long as it is necessary to fulfil the purpose for which it was collected, or as required or permitted by applicable laws.
Please contact our Data Protection Officer at DPO@tal.sg if you:
This Policy applies in conjunction with any other notices, contractual clauses and consent clauses that apply in relation to the collection, use and disclosure of your Personal Data by us.
We may revise this Policy from time to time without any prior notice. You may determine if any such revision has taken place by referring to the date on which this Policy was last updated. Your continued use of our services constitutes your acknowledgement and acceptance of such changes.
This Personal Data Policy and your use of this website shall be governed in all respects by the laws of Singapore.
