Collection of Personal Data
From time to time and for the purpose of carrying on any operation or business of the Trust and/or the Club, you may be requested to supply data that may directly or indirectly identify you or other person(s) as an individual ("Personal Data"). The scope of Personal Data required from you may vary depending on the circumstances but in general may include, but is not limited to, the following:-
Supply of Personal Data to the Trust and/or the Club is generally non-obligatory but failure to do so may result in the Trust and/or the Club being unable to process your applications or to provide you with the relevant facilities or services.
Occasionally, you may need to provide Personal Data about other individuals to the Trust and/or the Club (such as spouse or children, funders, beneficiaries, members, employees, suppliers or contractors). In that event, for the compliance with the Ordinance, you are required to have first obtained the authorisation of such individuals before using, disclosing and transferring their Personal Data, including giving consent on their behalf to the Trust's and/or the Club's possible use, disclosure and transfer of their Personal Data, for the purposes you would want to achieve from the Trust and/or the Club. If necessary, the Trust and/or the Club may require you to provide to the Trust and/or the Club any supporting documents which may be necessary to prove such authorisation. You should also advise them that the Trust and/or the Club can be contacted for further information.
Use of Personal Data
Your Personal Data may be used for the following purposes or any directly-related purposes:-
Occasionally, the Trust, the Club and/or an HKJC Entity (or an agent on behalf the Trust, the Club or an HKJC Entity) may use your Personal Data (including your name and contact details) to send you marketing or promotional communications containing news, offers and/or promotions about charitable, community or other non-profit making events, causes or activities organised, sponsored or arranged by the Trust, the Club, or an HKJC Entity. For such purposes, your Personal Data may be provided to an HKJC Entity. However, the Trust, the Club and/or the HKJC Entities will first obtain your consent before doing so.
You can always opt-out from receiving such marketing or promotional communications free-of-charge by contacting the Club's Data Privacy Compliance Officer.
Disclosure of Personal Data
Personal Data supplied to the Trust and/or the Club will be kept confidential. However, the Trust and/or the Club may, where such disclosure is necessary to satisfy the purpose, or a directly related purpose, for which the Personal Data was collected, provide such Personal Data to the following parties:
The Trust and/or the Club may also disclose your Personal Data to third parties: (i) when required by law, by court order, or in response to a search warrant or other legally valid inquiry; or (ii) pursuant to the Trust and/or the Club's good faith belief that disclosure is required by law or otherwise necessary to the establishment of legal claims or defences, to obtain legal advice, to exercise and defend the Trust and/or the Club's legal rights, or to protect the life, body or property of an individual. This also applies when the Trust and/or the Club has reason to believe that disclosing the Personal Data is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be causing interference with the Trust and/or the Club's rights or properties, whether intentionally or otherwise, or when anyone else could be harmed by such activities.
Where applicable, the Trust and/or the Club may also transfer any information it holds about you as an asset in connection with a merger or sale (including transfers made as part of insolvency or bankruptcy proceedings) involving all or part of Trust and/or the Club or as part of a corporate reorganisation or other change in corporate control.
The Personal Data that the Trust and/or the Club collects or obtains may be transferred to jurisdictions that offer lesser protection of personal data than that provided in your jurisdiction. By submitting Personal Data to the Trust and/or the Club or applying for any of the funding programmes of the Trust and/or the Club, you understand and consent to such transfer.
