SafeEntry Privacy Statement

This SafeEntry Privacy Statement (the "Privacy Statement") must be read in conjunction with the SafeEntry Terms of Use (the "Terms"). The purpose of this Privacy Statement is to inform you of how we collect, use and disclose data relating to you, or that may relate to a third party individual and is provided by you (collectively, "Data").

The Types of Data that we collect
  1. We may collect Data in connection with your use of SafeEntry, including but not limited to -
    1. your name;
    2. your national registration identity card number, or your foreign identity number, or your nationality and passport number;

    4. the address of the subject premises which you are entering or exiting;
    5. your time of entry into the subject premises;
    6. your time of exit from the subject premises; and
    7. such other information as may be provided by, or collected from you in connection with your use of SafeEntry.
  2. We may collect the Data and other types of information relating to your activities in respect of SafeEntry, including but not limited to —
    1. Analytics Tags: Analytics Tags are used by us to analyse the effectiveness of the functionalities and features of SafeEntry in order to improve general user experience.
    2. Cookies: Cookies are small data files which are sent to your device to store and track information about you when you use SafeEntry. Cookies are also used to improve and maintain the functionality of SafeEntry, and to track information such as the number of users of SafeEntry, their frequency of use, the profile of the users and other similar information relating to the use of SafeEntry.
    3. Server Logs: Server logs are files and records of activity created by the device that you use SafeEntry from. We collect and retain such server logs for administrative, security and troubleshooting purposes.
    4. Device information: Information relating to your device such as its model, type, operating system and other technical attributes.

    In order for you to use SafeEntry to scan barcodes and QR codes (e.g. NRIC card barcode or TraceTogether Token QR code), SafeEntry will access your device’s camera for you to do so. Camera usage on SafeEntry will only be for this purpose. For the avoidance of doubt, SafeEntry does not access audio clips, pictures or videos stored on your device. Should other changes to in-app settings be required to enable or enhance the functionality of SafeEntry (e.g. access to your device’s location), we will draw your attention to these and your permission will be sought. In addition to the foregoing and where applicable, SafeEntry will toggle your device’s WiFi and Bluetooth to periodically clear cache and data in order for you to use the SafeEntry (Business) App for prolonged scanning for TraceTogether Bluetooth User IDs (e.g. TraceTogether App or Token Bluetooth User ID).
