We may transfer your personally identifiable information to our associated companies or other companies with whom we contract outside Singapore, including the South East Asia, United States of America and European Economic Area.

Your election not to receive newsletters or promotional and marketing correspondence from us will not (a) preclude us from corresponding with you by email or otherwise, regarding your existing or past relationship with us, and (b) preclude us, including our employees, contractors, agents and other representatives, from accessing and viewing your personal information in the course of maintaining and improving the Site.
