By accessing the Platforms and/or providing personal data to GuavaPass, you hereby acknowledge that you have read this Policy and that you consent to the collection, use and disclosure of your personal data by GuavaPass in accordance with this Policy as amended or updated from time to time. If you do not consent to the terms of this Policy (or variation thereof), please do not access the Platforms or provide your personal data to GuavaPass.
If you provide personal data on behalf of someone else when you register for an Account, you warrant that you have obtained the authorisation from that person to provide such personal sata on his/her behalf and you agree to indemnify and hold harmless GuavaPass from any claim that such authority did not exist. If your Account is registered by someone else on your behalf and by using (or continuing to use) the Platforms through your Account, you are deemed to have agreed to the terms of this Policy.
2. Unsolicited Information and Exclusions
This Policy shall not apply to any unsolicited information you provide to GuavaPass through the Platforms or any other means. GuavaPass does not knowingly collect or solicit personal data from those below the age of 18, or knowingly allow such persons to register an Account. If you are under 18, please do not use the Platforms, or attempt to register an Account or send any personal data about yourself to us.
Further, access to and use of the Platforms and/or our services may be limited in scope to certain geographical territories. Any limitations are identified on the Platforms or otherwise provided when you are registering an account with GuavaPass. Where we set out the territories in which our services are available, you may not use the Platforms and/or our services outside of those territories. For example, our services are not currently available in any country within the European Union (“EU”). In this regard, we do not therefore knowingly collect or solicit personal data from EU residents, or monitor the behaviour of any EU residents. As such, if our services are not available in the country in which you reside, please do not use the Platforms, or attempt to register an Account or send any personal data about yourself to us.
3. What is Personal Data?
“Personal data” means data about a person who can be identified (i) from that data, or (ii) from that data and other information to which GuavaPass has or is likely to have access.
4. What personal data does GuavaPass collect?
We gather various types of personal data of our users and customers, as explained more fully below.
Data that is voluntarily provided. GuavaPass collects personal data that you voluntarily provide to us, whether through the Platforms. At various places on the Platforms, or in the course of obtaining the services provided by GuavaPass, you may be required to provide certain personal data such as your full name, email address, address, country of residence, telephone number and other personal information, in order to access or use certain features or services of the Platforms, or to otherwise obtain our services. For example, personal data may be collected when you register an Account, join our subscription program, enter a contest, promotion or survey, fill up a form, provide comments, suggestions or feedback, or when you contact our customer service or helpdesk via email, phone or other channels. You can always choose not to provide your personal data, but you may not be able to access or use certain features or services of the Platforms, or to obtain certain services from us. Whenever you volunteer personal data, you are consenting to the manner in which it will be handled in accordance with this Policy. Wherever you are required to provide personal data, we will make an effort to provide a link to this Policy.

We do not rent, trade or sell your personal data. Your personal data will not be disclosed by GuavaPass to any third party, except:
(a) to any affiliate, subsidiary or partner of GuavaPass; our technology, marketing and logistics service providers; credit card and payment processing companies; lawyers, auditors, professional advisors and investors of GuavaPass; or any other agents, service providers or subcontractors acting for or on behalf of GuavaPass, to the extent required to carry out the purposes set out in Section 5 above, or to do anything at your request; or

From time to time, we may collaborate with other third parties to organise joint marketing and promotional campaigns, offers or contests, and may require disclosure of your information to such third parties. For example, where a promotion or Voucher Code is specially offered to customers of our third party partner, we may share your information with that partner to the extent relevant to such promotional campaign. In some cases, you may not be able to enjoy the promotion, offer or participate in the contest, unless you consent to disclosure to our partner of your information. “Voucher Code” refers to any credits, vouchers, coupons or codes offered by GuavaPass for use in the purchase of goods from GuavaPass.
Recipients of your personal data may be located outside Singapore. You agree that we may transfer your personal data to our affiliates, subsidiaries and/or other third parties located outside of Singapore, as long as the personal data is handled in accordance with this Policy and all applicable laws. GuavaPass will ensure recipients of your personal data are legally bound to provide a standard of protection for your personal data comparable to the protection afforded under the Personal Data Protection Act 2012 (No. 26 of 2012) (“PDPA”). For example, if we were to (but we currently do not) collect or process personal data from users who are residing in the EU, we will comply with the EU’s General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR).
7. How long do we retain your data?
Personal data provided by you will be retained as long as the purpose for which the data was collected continues. Thereafter, GuavaPass will destroy or delete the information, or remove the means by which the data can be associated with you, unless its retention is required to satisfy legal, regulatory, accounting or other business requirements or to protect GuavaPass’s interests.
8. Additional or Optional Services
When certain additional or optional services (“Additional Services”) are offered to or requested by you, separate or supplemental privacy policies may apply for those Additional Services as the needs and choices of each user may vary. The separate or supplemental privacy policies would explain the types of information we collect, their purposes of use, and other policies that may apply to the relevant Additional Services. When you choose to use an Additional Service, you will be informed of the relevant applicable privacy policies, which supplements or modifies this Policy before you can access that Additional Service.
‘Search for Friends’ feature
To make it easier to connect with your friends who are using the Platforms, the ‘Search for Friends” feature allows GuavaPass members to search for other GuavaPass members through the Platforms. This is an optional feature which you may opt out of by choosing to allow your profile to be searchable or private, as the case may be. Your profile will be set at public by default unless you opt otherwise via the given privacy settings. By choosing to allow your profile to be searchable, other GuavaPass members can search and connect with us based on your name, e-mail address or phone number, and you may search for friends who are using the Platforms and who have consented to being found via their name, e-mail address or phone number. We may upgrade this feature to allow us access to the phone numbers in your mobile device’s address book but only the phone number fields in your mobile device’s address book, and enable you to invite your friends to join GuavaPass memberships. You can at any time change your mind and disable this feature via the given privacy settings.
9. Is your data secure?
