When we share your Personal Data, we will take steps to ensure that the recipient will protect your privacy, keep your Personal Data secure, and process it in accordance with applicable laws and this Privacy Notice.

When we need to transfer your Personal Data to countries outside Malaysia for processing activities listed in ‘How Do We Use’ section above, we will take appropriate steps to ensure that your Personal Data is adequately protected (for countries that may not provide the same level of protection as Malaysia). This includes having a proper legal agreement that covers the data transfer and carrying out data security reviews of any recipients to ensure that Personal Data in that country will not be processed in a manner which would contradict applicable data protection laws in Malaysia.

We reserves its right to amend this Privacy Notice from time to time based on changes as per the business, legal and regulatory requirements and applicable laws. We encourage you to revisit this Privacy Notice periodically, allowing you to see any changes made by checking the effective date above. 


If we decide to use or disclose information that identifies you personally in a way that is materially different from what we stated in our Privacy Notice at the time we collected that information from you, we will give you a choice about the new use or disclosure by appropriate means, which may include an opportunity to opt-out.
