IntriCon Pte Ltd (“IntriCon”) Commitment to Data Privacy Protection

Protecting the security and privacy of your personal data is important to IntriCon; therefore, we conduct our business in compliance with applicable laws on data privacy protection and data security. We hope the policy outlined below will help you understand what data IntriCon may collect, how IntriCon uses and safeguards that data and with whom we may share it.

Personal Data

Through our Website, IntriCon will not collect any personal data about you (e.g. your name, address, telephone number or e-mail address), unless you voluntarily choose to provide us with it (e.g. by product inquiry, survey), respectively, provide your consent, or unless otherwise permitted by applicable laws and regulations for the protection of your personal data.

Purpose of Use

When you do provide us with personal data, we usually use it to respond to your inquiry, process your order or provide you access to specific information or offers. Also, to support our customer relationship with you:

  • we may store and process personal data and share it with our worldwide affiliates to better understand your business needs and how we can improve our products and services; or
  • we (or a third party on our behalf) may use personal data to contact you about a IntriCon offer in support of your business needs.

We may also collect, use, disclose or process information contained in employment applications or other employment-related forms / documents submitted to us for administrative and management purposes, including but not limited to: recruitment, assessment of the candidate’s suitability, appraisal, performance, promotion, training, career development, remuneration, health and safety, discipline, review of human resource policies and/or statistical purposes. If you choose not to have your personal data used to support our customer relationship (especially direct marketing or market research), we will respect your choice. We do not sell or otherwise market your personal data to third parties, except to IntriCon affiliates. IntriCon also requires its worldwide affiliates which process personal data on its behalf to adhere to similar data protection standards as the personal data protection legal framework in Singapore.

Purpose Limitation

IntriCon will collect, use or disclose personal data supplied by you online only for the purposes disclosed to you, unless the disclosure:

  • is a use of the personal data for any additional purpose that is consistent with the original purpose for which consent was given,
  • is necessary to prepare, negotiate and perform a contract with you,
  • is required by law or the competent governmental or judicial authorities,
  • is necessary to establish or preserve a legal claim or defence,
  • is necessary to prevent fraud or other illegal activities, such as wilful attacks on IntriCon information technology systems.

Through your use of telecommunications services to access our Website, your communications data (e.g. Internet protocol address) or utilization data (e.g. information on the beginning, end and extent of each access, and information on the telecommunications services you accessed) are technically generated and could conceivably relate to personal data. To the extent that there is a compelling necessity, the collection, use and disclosure of your communications or utilization data will occur and will be performed in accordance with the personal data protection legal framework in Singapore.
