Data protection policy

Data Protaction Policy

Go Abroad Study Programs holds Personal Data about our users, employees, clients, suppliers and other individuals for a variety of business purposes.

This policy sets out how we seek to protect Personal Data and ensure that staff understand the rules governing their use of Personal Data to which they have access in the course of their work. In particular, this policy requires staff to ensure that the Data Protection Officer (DPO) be consulted before any significant new data processing activity is initiated to ensure that relevant compliance steps are addressed.

Go Abroad Study Programs operates in several jurisdictions, including Europe, the United Kingdom and Singapore. This policy describes principles and procedures which ensure Go Abroad Study Programs complies with the various regulations across all the regions in which we operate.

The procedures described in this policy must be followed at all times by Go Abroad Study Programs, its employees, agents, contractors, or other parties working on behalf of Go Abroad Study Programs.

Go Abroad Study Programs is committed not only to the letter of the law but also to the spirit of the law and places a high premium on the correct, lawful and fair handling of all Personal Data, respecting the legal rights, privacy and trust of all individuals with whom it deals.

Scope

This policy applies to all staff. You must be familiar with this policy and comply with its terms. This policy supplements our other policies relating to internet and email use. We may supplement or amend this policy by additional policies and guidelines from time to time. Any new or modified policy will be circulated to staff before being adopted.

Our Data Protection Officer has overall responsibility for the day-to-day implementation of this policy.

Training

All staff will receive training on this policy. New staff will receive training as part of the induction process. Further training will be provided at least every year or whenever there is a substantial change in the law or our policy and procedure.

Training is provided through in-house seminars and online training on an annual basis, and covers the applicable laws relating to data protection, and Go Abroad Study Programs’ data protection and related policies and procedures.

Completion of training is compulsory.

If you have any questions or concerns about anything in this policy, do not hesitate to contact the DPO.

Applicable legislative considerations

UK Data Protection Act 1998 (DPA)

Under the UK Data Protection Act 1998, Personal Data is defined as data which relates to a living individual who can be identified from that data, or from that data and other information which is in the possession of, or is likely to come into the possession of, the data controller, and includes any expression of opinion about the individual and any indication of the intentions of the data controller or any other person in respect of the individual.

The UK Data Protection Act 1998 also defines “sensitive Personal Data” as Personal Data relating to the racial or ethnic origin of the data subject; their political opinions; their religious (or similar) beliefs; trade union membership; their physical or mental health condition; their sexual life; the commission or alleged commission by them of any offence; or any proceedings for any offence committed or alleged to have been committed by them, the disposal of such proceedings or the sentence of any court in such proceedings.

Go Abroad Study Programs is registered with the Information Commissioner as a data controller under the register held by the Information Commissioner pursuant to Section 19 of the UK Data Protection Act 1998.

Singapore PDPA (PDPA)

Personal Data is defined in the PDPA as “data, whether true or not, about an individual who can be identified a) from that data; or b) from that data and other information to which the organisation has or is likely to have access.”

EU General Data Protection Regulation (EU) 2016/679 (GDPR)

The regulation applies if the data controller (organization that collects data from EU residents) or processor (organization that processes data on behalf of data controller e.g. cloud service providers) or the data subject (person) is based in the EU.

Regulation also applies to organizations based outside the European Union if they collect or process personal data of EU residents. According to the European Commission, Personal Data is: " any information relating to an individual, whether it relates to his or her private, professional or public life. It can be anything from a name, a home address, a photo, an email address, bank details, posts on social networking websites, medical information, or a computer’s IP address.”

Personal Data

Go Abroad Study Programs defines Personal Data as the broader of the definitions contained in the PDPA, DPA, and GDPR.

Go Abroad Study Programs defines Sensitive Personal Data as the broader of the definitions contained in the PDPA, DPA, and GDPR.

Any use of sensitive Personal Data is to be strictly controlled in accordance with this policy.

While some data will always relate to an individual, other data may not, on its own, relate to an individual. Such data would not constitute Personal Data unless it is associated with, or made to relate to, a particular individual.

For the purposes of the Singaporean PDPA, Go Abroad Study Programs is a Data Intermediary. From the Act: “data intermediary” is an organisation which processes Personal Data on behalf of another organisation but does not include an employee of that other organisation. Generic information that does not relate to a particular individual may also form part of an individual’s Personal Data when combined with Personal Data or other information to enable an individual to be identified.

Aggregated data is not Personal Data.

Go Abroad Study Programs gathers Personal Data for two purposes: for student enrollment, and for internal operations.

Personal Data for student enrollment relates to identifiable individual users and may include:

  • user profile information such as Full name, Photograph, Address , Date of Birth, Mobile telephone number, and Personal email address;
  • travel-related data such as passport number, ID number and flight ticket data
  • study-related data such as enrolment documents and reference letters

Personal Data we gather for internal operational purposes relates to identifiable individuals such as job applicants, current and former employees, contract and other staff, clients, suppliers, and marketing contacts, and the data gathered may include individuals' contact details, educational background, financial and pay details, details of certificates and diplomas, education and skills, marital status, nationality, job title, and CV.

Principles

Go Abroad Study Programs collects and processes Personal Data in compliance with the following data protection principles:

Consent - The user (data subject) must give their explicit, active consent to the collection and processing of their Personal Data. This consent can be revoked at any time.

Notification - Go Abroad Study Programs notifies all users about the intended purpose of any collected data prior to collection.

Purpose Limitation - Personal Data can be used only for the purposes explained to the user, and for which they have explicitly given consent. The data collected must be necessary for the performance of the purpose, and not excessive with respect to the purposes for which it was collected.

Right to Access and Correction - Users should be able to access their personal, wearable, and messaging data, and to correct said data where applicable.

Accuracy - Go Abroad Study Programs should take all reasonable steps to ensure users’ data is accurate and up to date.

Protection - Go Abroad Study Programs should take all reasonable steps to ensure user data is secured and protected against unauthorised or unlawful processing, accidental loss, destruction, or damage.

Retention Limitation - Go Abroad Study Programs should not keep personal user data for any longer than necessary to fulfil the purposes for which the user gave their consent.

Openness - Go Abroad Study Programs publicly publishes our Data Protection Policy and the direct contact details of our Data Protection Officer.

Data Portability - Upon request, a user should have the right to receive a copy of their data in a structured format. These requests should be processed within one month, provided there is no undue burden and it does not compromise the privacy of other individuals.

Right to be Forgotten - A data subject may request that any information held on them is deleted or removed, and any third parties who process or use that data must also comply with the request. An erasure request can only be refused if an exemption applies.

Privacy by Design and Default - Privacy by Design is an approach to projects that promote privacy and data protection compliance from the start. The DPO will be responsible for conducting Privacy Impact Assessments and ensuring that all IT projects commence with a privacy plan. When relevant, and when it does not have a negative impact on the data subject, privacy settings will be set to the most private by default.

Data Audit and Register - Go Abroad Study Programs will keep a register of annual data audits & their outcomes to manage and mitigate risks.

Fair and lawful processing

We must process Personal Data fairly and lawfully in accordance with individuals’ rights. This generally means that we should not process Personal Data unless the individual whose details we are processing has consented to this happening.

The processing of all data must be:

  • Necessary to deliver our services
  • In our legitimate interests and not unduly prejudice the individual's privacy
  • In most cases this provision will apply to routine business data processing activities.

Purpose Limitation

Go Abroad Study Programs staff must not use Personal Data for any Purpose other than that consented to by the user. In the general case, this means that it must be for the purpose of study related and enrollment services and or supporting activities.

Go Abroad Study Programs staff should not access Personal Data except where required to do so in the course of their work.

Right to Access, Correction, and Accuracy

Users can use the Go Abroad Study Programs apps to access their personal, wearable, and messaging data, and to correct their profile data at any time.

Go Abroad Study Programs assumes that Personal Data collected directly from the user will be accurate and complete.

We will ensure that any Personal Data we process is accurate, adequate, relevant, and not excessive, given the purpose for which it was obtained.

Individuals may ask that we correct inaccurate Personal Data relating to them. If you believe that information is inaccurate you should record the fact that the accuracy of the information is disputed and inform the DPO.

Protection

Go Abroad Study Programs should take all reasonable steps to ensure user data is secured and protected against unauthorised or unlawful processing, accidental loss, destruction, or damage.

In cases when data is stored on printed paper, it should be kept in a secure place where unauthorised personnel cannot access it. Printed data should be shredded when it is no longer needed.

User Access Requests

Individuals are entitled, subject to certain exceptions, to request access to information held about them.
