Singapore Press Holding (SPH) doesn’t understand, respect, or demostrate proper care for reader’s personal information and privacy. Click on the above image for enlarged version.

I encourage everyone in Singapore to get serious about protecting their personal particulars and privacy. The image above is an example of the common unawareness and lack of personal privacy protection around Singapore. Such examples can also be found in many registration forms and marketing peripherals.

As members of the public, we should ask the organisers:

– why organisations are collecting information about us
– who else these organisation might give it to; and
– what recourse on does the public have within these organisations after their information has given away

One thought on “Your Personal Information are All Mine reckons Singapore Press Holding

  1. Wow full name, NRIC number, Date of birth, and address all on the same piece of paper… and they can do whatever they want with it… the people that handle this better be really honest, and decently paid… at 1 dollar for 1 person’s identity, temptation maybe too great for some…
