7. Disclosure of your personal information outside Singapore

Dacxi IP Pte. Ltd is registered and operates in Singapore, but we use the services of a number of third parties that are based outside Singapore. Accordingly, your personal information may be stored, transferred, and processed in countries outside of the country of your residence. For example, we disclose information to:

  • HubSpot, which uses data centers located in the EU and the US; 
  • Google, Facebook, LinkedIn and Instagram, which use data centers located outside of Singapore. 

We take the utmost care when we’re transferring your personal information.  

Where we disclose your personal information to parties located overseas (or which have data centers located in other countries), we take reasonable steps to ensure that those parties will handle the personal information in accordance with the Privacy Policy. We are not required to take such steps if we believe that the overseas recipient is already subject to a law that has the effect of protecting personal information in a substantially similar way to the relevant law in Singapore, or with your consent.

 

8. The retention of your personal information

DacxiChain will retain information in compliance with this policy and the Terms of Use for the duration of your relationship with us, and afterwards for such period as may be necessary to protect the interests of DacxiChain and its customers, and as required by DacxiChain’s relevant policies and the law.

 

9. How you can access and update your personal information

You have a right to access and correct your personal information. Please contact DacxiChain customer support to do this. DacxiChain will take steps to verify your identity before fulfilling the request.

In the case of changes to your personal information or where it has not been updated, you will need to contact DacxiChain support to update your personal information. DacxiChain may use its discretion in allowing the corrections requested and may require further documentary evidence of the new information to avoid fraud and inaccuracy.

We may deny access to personal information if:

  • the request is unreasonable;
  • providing access would have an unreasonable impact on the privacy of another person;
  • providing access would pose a serious and imminent threat to the life or health of any person; or
  • there are other legal grounds to deny the request.

We may charge a fee for reasonable costs incurred in responding to an access request. The fee (if any) will be disclosed prior to it being levied.

If the personal information we hold is not accurate, complete and up-to-date, we will take reasonable steps to correct it where it is appropriate to do so.
