Your privacy is important to us. The purpose of this Privacy Policy is to inform you of how Meeting Matters International (Meet Matt) manages personal data in accordance with the Singapore’s Personal Data Protection Act 2012 (“the Act”). The Personal Data Protection Act 2012 (PDPA 2012) was issued in 23 September 2013 and revised on 2 June 2020.
(In the development of this Act, references were made to the data protection regimes of key jurisdictions that have established comprehensive data protection laws, including the EU, UK, Canada, Hong Kong, Australia and New Zealand, as well as the OECD Guidelines on the Protection of Privacy and Trans border Flow of Personal Data, and the APEC Privacy Framework. The PDPC has amended the Personal Data Protection Regulations to recognise the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Cross Border Privacy Rules (CBPR) System and Privacy Recognition for Processors (PRP) System certifications as one of the modes for transfers of data overseas. An overseas recipient that is CBPR- or PRP-certified is considered legally bound to provide comparable protection for the transferred personal data to the PDPA. Organisations in Singapore can thus easily transfer personal data to the overseas recipient without meeting additional requirements. The list of certified organisations on the APEC website:
