The British Chamber of Commerce Singapore provides a network to build opportunities for British, international and local organisations in Singapore. We encourage trade and investment in Singapore and the Asia-Pacific region and we provide our members with practical support and advice, delivered via a range of scheduled events and online communities to share knowledge and expertise.
We are committed to protecting and respecting your privacy.
By providing your personal contact details to the Chamber and accepting our terms and conditions, you are deemed to have given your consent for the collection and secure use of your personal data as provided in order for the Chamber to continuously deliver relevant services to you.

- sharing your details as a member within the online Membership Directory, visible to your follow members via secure login to their account. By accepting the terms and conditions during membership registration of the Chamber, you are deemed to have given consent for details to be shared here. You may opt out of being visible within the Directory at any time by accessing your profile.
Outside of our provision of services to you, the Chamber maintains subscription mailing lists for promotion of our activities and partner content. During the completion of your personal profile within the registration process, you will be asked for your preferences which the Chamber will defer to. You may change your preferences or unsubscribe from any or all of our marketing lists at any time should you choose to do so by accessing your profile. Please note that unsubscribing from a marketing mailing list will not remove you from membership communications required for the ongoing delivery of our services throughout your membership term.
WHEN WILL WE CONTACT YOU? AND WHAT IF YOU WANT TO WITHDRAW CONSENT?
We will only contact you if we have your consent to do so and for the purposes we have communicated within this policy. Should you wish to withdraw consent, you may unsubscribe from our mailing lists or alternatively contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note that the withdrawal of your consent may result in us not being able to provide you with the full remit of our services. Withdrawal of consent for the use of photos and videos with your image applies to the future use of images, not those already publicly available.
WILL WE SHARE YOUR INFORMATION WITH THIRD PARTIES?
We will only share your information with other users, members, participants and selected third parties of the Chamber to facilitate communication, networking and business opportunities.
Any information you upload to your profile and/or post on our website may be visible to our personnel and other users of our website.
We may disclose your information to third parties:
- where partners help us in the administration or operation of our organisation; and
- if we are under a duty to disclose or share your personal information in order to comply with any legal or regulatory obligation, or in order to enforce or in complying with our obligations under our terms and conditions or other agreements; or to protect our rights, property, or safety or that of other users or third parties.
In connection with the events we organise, we may also share limited information with event venues and caterers, including your identity details (e.g. to comply with security requirements) and dietary requirements.
THIRD PARTY SERVICES
TRANSFERRING INFORMATION OUTSIDE OF SINGAPORE
Where our partners who help us in the administration or operation of our organisation are based in other locations, your information may be transferred outside of Singapore. We will work with any such third parties to make sure they have reasonable security arrangements in place so as to ensure that recipients in those countries will provide you with a standard of protection that is at least comparable to the standards under the Personal Data Protection Act 2012 of Singapore. We may also transfer your information outside of Singapore in relation to business opportunities but we would only do this with your prior consent.
HOW DO WE PROTECT YOUR INFORMATION?
The security of your information is important to us. We maintain appropriate and reasonable security arrangements to prevent unauthorised access, collection, use, disclosure, copying, modification, disposal or similar risks. However, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of your personal information provided to us via the Internet, and any transmission is at your own risk.
FOR HOW LONG IS YOUR INFORMATION RETAINED?
