This data protection notice will assist you in understanding how we collect, use, disclose and manage your personal data with us.

Personal Data

The PDPA defines personal data as “data, whether true or not, about an individual who can be identified (a) from that data; or (b) from that data and other information to which the organisation has or is likely to have access.”

Such personal data may include but are not limited to your name, address, contact details, name and date of birth of your child, etc.

We collect your personal data when you:

We may ask you to bring the documents containing personal data to our Get-to-know-you Party for verification purposes but we will not keep copies of such documents.

As a platform for our alumni to network and connect, NSAA’s purposes for processing personal data are as follows:

  1. To process membership applications;

When we collect your personal data from you directly, it is your responsibility to ensure that the personal data that you disclose to us is accurate and complete. We will take reasonable and appropriate measures to maintain the personal data accurately.

To help us maintain the accuracy of the personal data, we encourage you to promptly inform us when there are changes to the personal data that you have provided to us. From time to time, we may do a data verification exercise with you to update us on any changes to your personal data.
