This policy was last updated on 19th November 2021.
Our websites, products and services are designed for businesses and their representatives. We do not offer products or services for use by individuals for their personal, family or household purposes. Accordingly, we treat all personal information we collect as pertaining to individuals in their capacities as business representatives and not as individual consumers.
Importantly, some laws (like GDPR) distinguish between a “controller” and a “processor” (or similar terms). We note that we are a “controller” where we make decisions on how personal information is used in connection with our Services (for instance in relation to personal information from visitors to our websites; from our job applicants; and about our customers and vendors to help us manage our business relationships with them), and we are a “processor” where we only use personal information in accordance with the instructions given by third parties providing such personal information.
- any content that is inputted/uploaded and processed, stored, or hosted by third parties using our Services;
- any third-party website, application, product, software, service, or content that can be accessed through our Services or that our customers independently elect to integrate with our Services (“Third-Party Services”). Third-Party Services are governed by the terms and privacy policies applicable to your relationship with such third party, and we accept no responsibility or liability with respect to Third-Party Services.

International Data Transfers
Your personal information may be transferred to, and processed in, countries other than the country in which you are resident. These countries may have data protection laws that are different to the laws of your country (and, in some cases, may not be as protective).
Specifically, our primary offices are located in Singapore and Spain, and our third-party service providers and partners operate around the world. This means that when we collect your personal information, it may be processed in any of these countries.
Retention of information
We only retain personal information necessary for our legal or business purposes, which varies depending on the type of Service, business function, record classes, and record types.
We calculate retention periods based upon and reserve the right to retain personal information for the periods that the personal information is needed to:
- meet the timelines determined or recommended by regulators, professional bodies, or associations,
- comply with applicable laws, legal holds, and other legal obligations (including contractual obligations), and
- where required, comply with your requests.
When we have no ongoing legitimate business need to process your personal information, we will either delete or anonymize it or, if this is not possible (for example, because your personal information has been stored in backup archives), then we will securely store your personal information and isolate it from any further processing until deletion is possible.
Security of information
The security of your personal information is important to us. As such, we have implemented technical and organisational measures to protect the security of personal information based on the nature, scope, context, and purposes of processing personal information, as well as the varying likelihood and severity risks to individuals. Our security measures also means that we may request proof of identity before we disclose personal information to you or before we process your other requests.
While we strive to us commercially acceptable measures designed to protect personal information, kindly note that no method of transmission over the internet or any other method of electronic storage is 100% secure. We are thus unable to guarantee the absolute security of your personal information.
In the unlikely event that your information is compromised, we will notify the appropriate authorities and those impacted as quickly as possible.

Understanding Cookies and Other Tracking Technologies
Cookies are small pieces of data, usually in the form of text files, that are stored on your device when you load websites in a browser. They are widely used to “remember” you and your preferences. Different types of cookies keep track of different activities. Session cookies are used when you are actively navigating a website; once you leave the site, the session cookie disappears. Tracking cookies may be used to create long-term records of multiple visits to the same site. Authentication cookies track whether a user is logged in, and if so, under what name.
Cookies ensure a consistent and efficient experience for visitors, and perform essential functions such as allowing users to register and remain logged in. They may be set by the site that you are visiting (known as “first party cookies”), or by third parties, such as those who serve content or provide advertising or analytics services on a website (“third party cookies”).
Websites and HTML emails may also contain other tracking technologies, such as “web beacons” or “pixels.” These are typically small transparent images that provide web providers and senders (as the case may be) with statistics, for similar purposes as cookies. They are often used in conjunction with cookies, though they are not stored on your computer in the same way as cookies. As a result, if you disable cookies, web beacons may still load, but their functionality will be restricted.
The bullet points below outline the types of cookies we use on our Services and why we use them:
- Strictly Necessary. These cookies are essential for our Services to perform their basic functions. These include cookies that are required to allow registered users to authenticate and perform account-related functions.
- Analytics and Performance. Performance cookies collect information on how users interact with our Services, including what pages are visited most, as well as other analytical data. We use these details to improve how our Services function and to understand how users interact with our Services.
- Functionality. These cookies are used to store preferences set by users such as account name, language, and location.
- Security. We use these cookies to help identify and prevent potential security risks.
- Advertising. These cookies are used to display relevant advertising to users who use our Services, as well as to understand and report on the efficacy of ads served on our Services. They track details such as the number of unique visitors, the number of times particular ads have been displayed, and the number of clicks the ads have received. They are also used to build user profiles, including showing you ads based on products or services you’ve viewed or acts you have taken on our (and other) websites and Services. These are set by us and trusted third party networks, and are generally persistent in nature.
- Third Party / Embedded Content. Services hosted by us may make use of different third party applications and services to enhance the experience of our Services. These include social media platforms such as Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter (through the use of sharing buttons). As a result, cookies may be set by these third parties, and used by them to track your online activity. We have no control over the information that is collected by these cookies.
- our websites (including taiger.com) and other Services;
- the emails we send.
You may also opt out of Google Analytics by installing Google’s opt-out browser add-on.
Do No Track Signals
Generally, we do not currently respond to, or take any action with respect to web browser “do not track” signals or other mechanisms that provide individuals the ability to exercise choice regarding the collection of personal information about an individual’s online activities over time and across third party websites or online services. However, in some instances our third party service providers who integrate within our Services do honor Do Not Track signals.
Consent for Advertising Cookies on Our Sites
You may see a “cookie banner” on our websites. If you are visiting one of our Services from the EEA, then we do not set, or allow our partners to set, cookies that are used to show you targeted ads before you click to accept. When you consent in this manner, we and our partners may set advertising cookies on the site or other Service you are visiting.
Opt-Out of Email Marketing
You may choose not to receive future marketing or advertising emails from us by clicking the unsubscribe link at the bottom of each marketing or advertising email that you receive from us.
Please note that, even if you opt-out of receiving marketing or advertising emails, we may still send you administrative emails related to the performance of our Services or your account with us, including administrative emails, maintenance emails, operational emails (for example, in connection with a password reset request), and responses to any “contact” request you initiate.
We may also restart sending you marketing or advertising emails if you later opt-in.
