1. Data processing by FOCKE SINGAPORE PTE LTD

We offer you the opportunity to comment on our posts, share them, “like” them or send us a private message. Generally, your comments can be accessed by anyone worldwide on the Internet. The content of communication via messenger, however, can only be accessed by LinkedIn itself, e.g. as part of IT administration.


For the purpose of optimizing our LinkedIn page, we use the anonymized page analytics provided to us by LinkedIn. We only use this information to identify trends; it is not possible for us to relate it back to the respective persons. We have no influence on how for what purpose the data that goes into these page analytics is processed.


We receive the following data via LinkedIn page analysis:


Follower Analytics:

  • Follower highlights (total number of followers, number of members following our page since creation, changes compared to last 30 days)
  • Follower metrics (changes in the number of followers + the ability to filter by time period)
  • Total number of followers (listed in order of recency)
  • Demographics of followers (breakdown of persons according to: location, job function, seniority, industry and company size)

Visitor Analytics

1.1 Storage period of your data

In principle, there is no set storage period for your published contributions, which means we either delete your data when storage is no longer required (concerning data we can delete ourselves) or restrict processing if there are statutory obligations to keep such data stored.


Furthermore, personal data will also be deleted if it is no longer required for the purposes for which it was collected or otherwise processed.


You can also delete your posts on our LinkedIn page yourself at any time.

1.2 Purpose & Legal Basis of data processing

We operate our LinkedIn page in our own interest in order to be able to communicate with customers, interested parties, business partners, applicants and users and to inform them about our enterprise, our offers, goods and events.


We process the statistical information provided by LinkedIn in our own interest to optimize our LinkedIn page. Anonymised data, that is, data from which an individual cannot be identified, is not covered by the definition of “personal data” in the Personal Data Protection Act (”PDPA”). Nearly all of the data we handle in the course of operating our LinkedIn page falls into the category of anonymised data.


Furthermore, in cases where the data falls under the category of “personal data”, the basis of our processing of the personal data is consent (s13 PDPA), since the data is voluntarily given (e.g. if you choose to comment on one of our posts using your LinkedIn account, revealing the public information on your profile).


However, in individual cases, and only if the statutory requirements are met, personal data may be processed on the basis that it is publicly available (i.e. under Paragraph 1 of Part 2 of the First Schedule of the PDPA, read with  section 17 of the PDPA).

1.3 Transfer of data outside of Singapore

We may transfer personal data outside of Singapore in cases where either:

  • The personal data concerned is publicly available data;
  • We have your consent; or
  • We have taken appropriate steps to ensure that the recipient of the personal data is bound by legally enforceable obligations to provide the transferred personal data a standard of protection comparable to the protection under the PDPA.

3. Your rights

You are generally entitled to the following rights vis-à-vis us. In individual cases, these may be restricted pursuant to the relevant provisions in the PDPA:

  • right to access to personal data (section 21 of the PDPA)
  • right to correction of personal data (section 22 of the PDPA)
  • right to data portability

If you request us to transfer your personal data to another organisation, we will comply, unless an exception applies.

We are not permitted to retain your personal data longer than necessary to fulfil the original collection purpose or other lawful purposes (s25 PDPA).

3.1 Revocation of consent

You are entitled to revoke any consent you have given to the processing of your data at any time. Such revocation will affect the permissibility of processing your personal data after it has been declared to us and only in cases where the data cannot be processed without your consent.

3.2 Complaint to the Singapore personal data protection commission
