- Undertake to safeguard and protect your Personal Information in our possession
- Undertake to freely confirm what Personal Information we have, to update and correct the Personal Information, and to keep it for no longer than legally required
In order to provide the services, there is a required need to collect, use, and keep your Personal Information as prescribed by relevant laws and regulations and for reasons such as:
