Privacy Policy


BY VISITING OUR SITE, YOU ACCEPT THE PRACTICES DESCRIBED IN OUR PRIVACY POLICY.

Accountability

URBAN STORY is committed to protecting the privacy of visitors to the Site and is responsible for all personal data collected. All personal data collected will be used and processed fairly and lawfully while in our possession or custody.

Collection and Usage of Information

URBAN STORY will request for your email address and other particulars in order to process your registration. This is necessary for users to access the Site fully and carry out transactions.

In addition, we automatically track certain information about you based on your usage of the Site. We will use session cookies, web beacons and other technologies to gather information about your navigational patterns through the Site. You may choose to block or disable cookies at any time through your browsers; however this may prevent you from accessing certain functions of the Site.

If you choose to invite an individual to join URBAN STORY, you will need to provide his/her name and email address. We store this information to track the results of the invitation referrals and quantify referral incentives.

URBAN STORY uses your personal information to complete transactions, respond to your queries and requests, fulfil customer services, improve our marketing and promotional efforts, analyse Site usage, improve our content and product offerings and notify you (by way of email or otherwise) of events, promotions, updates or special offers that may interest you. By using our Site and accepting this Privacy Policy, you expressly agree to receive such notifications and communications from us. If you no longer wish to receive such communications, you may follow the "unsubscribe" instructions that appear in every urbanstory.sg email.

Limiting Use, Disclosure and Retention

As a matter of policy, URBAN STORY will not disclose, share, transfer, sell or rent personally identifiable information to any 3rd party. Should URBAN STORY merge with or be acquired by another business entity, some or all of your information will be shared in order to continue providing you with the services available at the Site.

We do not keep personal data for longer than is necessary for those purposes for which they are collected. Should we require the use of personal data for a new purpose, we will ensure that obtain approval from the user prior to using the personal data of the user for the new purpose.

We will not display or make publicly available, whether through online directories, customer lists or otherwise, the personally identifiable information collected. 

URBAN STORY reserves the right to disclose information in order to comply with a subpoena, court order, administrative or governmental order, or any other requirement of law, or when we, in our sole discretion, believe it is necessary in order to protect our rights or the rights of others, to prevent harm to persons or property, to fight fraud and credit risk reduction.

Your Use of Other's Information

You agree to respect to other users' personal information that you obtain through the Site or through any URBAN STORY-related communication or transaction.

In addition, under no circumstances will you disclose personal information about another user to any third party without our consent and the consent of such other user after adequate disclosure. Please note that law enforcement personnel and other rights holders are given different rights with respect to information they access.

We and our users do not tolerate spam.

Control Your Password

You are responsible for all actions taken with your username and/or password. Therefore you should not disclose your URBAN STORY password to any third parties. If you choose to share your username and/or password or your information with third parties to provide you with additional services, you agree that you are responsible for all actions taken with your username and/or password and therefore you should review that third party's privacy policy.

If you lose control of your password, you may lose substantial control over your personal information and may be subject to legally binding actions taken on your behalf. Therefore, if your password has been compromised for any reason, you should immediately change your password and notify URBAN STORY.

Safeguards

Appropriate security safeguards are in place to protect personal data against unauthorised access, misuse, disclosure, copying, use, alteration, accidental loss or theft, destruction or damage.

Only authorised personals have access to our systems, and all employees in our organisation are aware of the importance of maintaining confidentiality of the personal data collected from users.

URBAN STORY contains links to other sites. Please be aware that we are not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites. This Privacy Policy applies solely to information collected by this Site.

We are not responsible for how these other companies or organisations collect, use, disclose, or secure the information that you provide them. If you choose to access a third party site linked to our Site, you do so at your own risk and subject to any terms of service or privacy policy (if any) associated with such third party sites. We encourage you to ask questions before you disclose your personal information to any third party.
