  • Data collected on/from our web servers from persons who visited our webs and media properties, which include, but are not limited to, the email addresses, location data and other online identifiers such as IP addresses of such data subjects who visit our websites and platforms (the “Web Servers and Public View Records”).

  • Web Servers and Public View Records are collected and kept for the purposes of: (i) providing and/or improving on the news, information and related services to you; and (ii) keeping abreast of and analysing the latest trends in the global media landscape.
  • Other purposes and uses of your data:

    • communicating with you (including responding to your enquiries or requests for information);
    • designing and offering contests, games, lucky draws, promotions, surveys or events;

DATA PROTECTION PRINCIPLES

All processing of personal data shall be conducted according to the data protection principles as follows:

  • Personal data shall be processed lawfully, fairly and transparently.
  • Personal data shall only be collected for specific and legitimate purposes.
  • Personal data shall be relevant and limited to what is necessary for processing.
  • Personal data shall be accurate and kept up to date by taking all practicable steps to erase or correct.
  • Personal data shall be kept in form such that the data subject can only be identified if it is necessary for processing.
  • Personal data shall be processed in a manner that ensures the appropraite security.

DATA INVENTORY

We have also kept a data inventory and data flow process to determine various aspects of our data processing, including:

  • Business processes that use personal data.
  • Purposes for collecting and/or using the personal data.
  • Source of personal data.
  • Processing activities.
  • Any data transfer, and to whom.
  • Any data access, correction or opt-out request.

Such data inventory would facilitate Cyberport in tracking its data and the related processing activities, and put us in a better position to comply with the relevant privacy and other laws and regulations.

LEGAL BASIS OF DATA PROCESSING

We ensure that there is a legal basis for our collection and processing of personal data.

Such legal bases include: (i) legitimate interests of Cyberport in processing personal data; (ii) compliance with applicable laws or regulations, after having sought your specific consent to process such personal data; and/or (iii) any other relevant basis under applicable laws and regulations.

Legitimate Interests

If Cyberport processes personal data under the "legitimate interests" legal basis, it means that the processing of the personal data is necessary for the legitimate interest pursued by Cyberport, except where such interests are overridden by the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject which requires the protection of personal data.

Legitimate Interests Assessment

In each relevant situation, we assess: (i) what these legitimate interests are; (ii) whether it is necessary to process such data to attain the objective; and (iii) the relevant rights of the data subjects. We will then balance such rights against our interests in achieving such objective, and ensure that such rights do not override Cyberport’s legitimate interests before we conclude that Cyberport can process the personal data on the basis of legitimate interests.

COMMUNICATE WITH THE DATA SUBJECTS

All data subjects will be informed of our collection of their personal data, the Categories of Personal Data concerned and the purpose of processing. This is to ensure that the data subjects are clear about our collection and processing of personal data and such collection and processing are within the data subjects’ reasonable expectations. Please be informed that all data subjects can object to our collection and processing of their personal data at any time, in addition to their rights of requesting for accessing and/or correcting their personal data in our possession.

DATA SECURITY MECHANISMS

We have also implemented appropriate mechanisms, policies and procedures to protect the confidentiality and security of the personal data that we collect and process, as we respect the privacy and related rights of the data subjects relating to such personal data by reducing the risks or potential negative impact of processing, including, but not limited to, data minimisation, de-identification, encryption, restricted access and all other technical security methods and efforts to protect personal data. Such protection of the privacy and related rights of the data subjects would enable Cyberport to process personal data under the legitimate interest legal basis.

DIRECT MARKETING

Cyberport uses personal data for direct marketing purposes unless the data subject explicitly objects or such is otherwise specifically prohibited under applicable laws.

  • Insurance, banking and financial products and services;
  • Products and services relating to airlines, hotel, health club, travel and hospitality;
  • Beauty, skin care, health, medical devices, biotechnology, pharmacy and wellness;
  • Eyewear and optical, fashion, sports, sports events, sports clubs, watches and jewellery, flower shop, stationery, toys, department stores and shopping malls;

Our use of personal data for direct marketing is subject to the consent of the data subjects in this regard. You may also exercise your opt-out right at any time. We will cease using your personal data in direct marketing once we receive your notification indicating your objection to receive any direct marketing materials from us. Please also refer to the "Consent" section below for more information.

TRANSFER OF PERSONAL DATA

CONSENT

Where relevant legal requirement demands that specific consent of the data subject must be obtained before we can process personal data in a certain way, such as conducting direct marketing, we will ensure that such specific and explicit consent will be obtained and that the data subject is fully aware of the types of the personal data that we intend to use, the purposes of such usage (such as improving our services to the data subject or direct marketing) and, if we intend to transfer the data, the name/identity of the transferee and how the transferee shall use the data subject’s personal data.

DATA RETENTION

We implement data retention policies and records to ensure that personal data will not be kept longer than is necessary in relation to the purpose for which they were collected. Different retention periods apply to various types of personal data that we hold, depending on the respective data collection/usage purpose and relevant legal requirements.
