Personal Data Collection

Under Part II of the Advisory Guidelines on the Personal Data Protection Act 2012 ("PDPA") for NRIC and Other National Identification Numbers (issued by the PDPC on 31 August 2018), organisations are generally not allowed to collect, use or disclose NRIC numbers except, for example, where it is necessary to accurately verify the identity of the individual to a high degree of fidelity.

However, as the fulfilment of CPD credits is a mandatory requirement for a real estate salesperson to retain his/her salesperson registration, CEA requires that the identities of CPD course attendees are accurately ascertained and that CPD credits are correctly allocated to salesperson.

Therefore, CPD Course Providers are required to furnish CEA with information such as course attendance records which include NRIC numbers to uniquely identify each attendee.

In order to deliver the following services requested by the participant, RCN will collect and use personally identifiable information including name, NRIC number, email address, address, telephone number and where necessary educational history. RCN will, where required by CEA or directed by the participant; disclose to CEA such personally identifiable information for the purposes of, and incidental to the participant's receipt of services, updating their attendance, academic and/or certification records with the CEA.
