Handling Personal Data of Individuals Under the Age of 18

At Transcend Awards Limited, we understand the importance of protecting the personal data of individuals who are under the age of 18. We take extra care to ensure that any personal data we collect from minors is processed in a lawful and transparent manner.

If you are under the age of 18, please do not provide us with any personal data without first obtaining consent from your parent or legal guardian. If we become aware that we have collected personal data from a minor without parental consent, we will take steps to delete that information as soon as possible.

We may also collect personal data about minors when it is necessary for providing our products or services. In these cases, we will only process the personal data with parental or legal guardian consent. Parents or legal guardians can request to access, amend, or delete their child’s personal data by contacting us using the details provided in this policy.

Legal Basis for Processing Personal Data

At Transcend Awards Limited, we process personal data on the basis of legitimate interest and/or consent. Legitimate interest means that we have a valid reason to process your personal data, which is necessary for our business operations. This includes processing personal data to provide you with the products or services you have requested, to improve our products and services, and to communicate with you about any changes or updates.

We may also process your personal data with your consent. This means that we will only use your personal data for the specific purposes that you have agreed to. You have the right to withdraw your consent at any time by contacting us.

We are committed to ensuring that all individuals whose personal data we process understand their rights in relation to their data. If you have any questions about how we process your personal data or would like more information on your rights, please contact us using the details provided in this policy.

Third-Party Service Providers

At Transcend Awards Limited, we use third-party service providers to assist us in providing our products and services. We take the protection of your personal data seriously, which is why we have implemented measures to ensure that these third-party service providers protect your personal data to an adequate standard.

We carefully select our third-party service providers based on their ability to meet our standards for data protection. Before engaging with a third-party service provider, we conduct due diligence checks to assess their level of compliance with relevant data protection laws and regulations.

We also require all of our third-party service providers to sign a Data Processing Agreement that outlines their obligations in relation to protecting your personal data. This includes requirements for them to implement appropriate technical and organisational measures to ensure the security of your personal data, only process your personal data for the purposes we have specified, and not disclose your personal data without our prior written consent.

In addition, we regularly monitor and audit our third-party service providers’ compliance with our Data Processing Agreement and relevant data protection laws and regulations. If we become aware of any breaches or potential breaches by a third-party service provider, we will take appropriate action to address the situation.

Data Sharing and Disclosure

We may share your personal data with the following categories of recipients:

a. Service Providers: We may engage third-party service providers who process personal data on our behalf, such as hosting providers, payment processors, or analytics providers. These providers are contractually obligated to handle your data securely and only for the purposes specified by us.
