As a general rule, we will upon any request from you, provide you as soon as reasonably possible with personal information about you that is in our possession and information about the ways in which the personal data has been or may have been used or disclosed within a year before the date of the request.
We will also, if and where you request that we correct an error or omission in the personal data about you that is kept with us, correct such data as soon as practicable and send the corrected personal data to every organisation to which the personal data was sent before it had been corrected, unless that organisation does not need the corrected personal data for any legal or business purpose.
We may however choose not to provide you with access to or correct such information, in accordance with the exceptions under the PDPA, including cases where:
- we are satisfied on reasonable grounds that the correction should not be made;
- the request for access is frivolous or vexatious or the information requested is trivial;
- the personal information is related to a prosecution and all the proceedings related to the prosecution have not been completed;
- the personal data, if disclosed, would reveal confidential commercial information that could, in the opinion of a reasonable person, harm the competitive position of the organisation; or

We may decide to impose a nominal charge to cover the cost of verifying a request for information and locating, retrieving, reviewing and copying any material requested.
