In respect of sending telemarketing messages to your Singapore telephone number via short message service, telephone calls, facsimile and other mobile messaging services, please be assured that we shall only do so if we have your clear and unambiguous consent in writing or other recorded form to do so or if you have not otherwise made the appropriate registration of that number with the Do Not Call Registry.

You may at any time request that we stop contacting you for marketing purposes via selected or all modes.

Nothing in this section shall vary or supersede the terms and conditions that govern our relationship with you.
