When you supply any personal information to the Italian Cultural Institute in Singapore, we have legal obligations towards you in the way we deal with that data.
We must collect the information fairly, that is, we must explain how we will use it and tell you if we want to pass the information on to anyone else.
In general, any information you provide to the Institute will only be used within the Italian Cultural Institute. It will never be supplied to anyone outside the Institute without first obtaining your consent, unless we are obliged or permitted by law to disclose it.
This applies to your name, email addresses, personal information and any email correspondence.
We will hold your personal information on our systems for as long as you use the service you have requested, and remove it in the event that the purpose has been met.
We will ensure that all personal information supplied is held securely, in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998.
If you are notified on the Italian Cultural Institute’s website that your information may be used to allow the Italian Cultural Institute to contact you, this means that the Institute may contact you for a number of purposes related to the service you have signed up for.
For example, we may wish to provide you with password reminders or notify you that the particular service has been suspended for maintenance.
We will not contact you for promotional purposes, such as notifying you of improvements to the service or new services on the Institute website.
