2. Information We Collect

2.1 Account Information: We will collect the following information for the purposes of opening and operating the TenX account.

  1. Account opening and usage :


To open a TenX account or use the TenX Services, we need your:

  • name;
  • address;
  • phone number;
  • the details of your identification document(s); and
  • email address.
  1. Topping up and making payments :


To top-up your available balance of your TenX account, order a payment card or make certain payments through the TenX Services, we need (where applicable):

  • your bank (or another payment instrument) account information;
  • to ask you to choose different security questions and answers (such as your city of birth or your pet's name); and
  • other additional commercial and/or identification information, if you send or receive certain high-value transactions or high overall payment volumes through the TenX Services, or we are otherwise required by anti-money laundering laws and regulations.
  1. Know-Your-Client/Anti-Money Laundering information from third parties and other sources:
  • In order to complete our customer screening and identity verification process, including checks in relation to fraud detection and prevention, anti-money laundering, know-your-client and countering of the financing of terrorism, we verify the information you provide with the TenX Group, payment partners, service providers and fraud agencies as well as information available through internet and publicly accessible social network data. In the course of such verification, we will collect information on your political opinions, records on past criminal jurisdictions and whether you are a politically exposed person or included in any sanction list.
  • We need you to upload a picture of yourself and your face must be recognizable in order for us to complete our customer screening and identity verification process.
  1. Confirmations and additional information:
  • If we cannot verify the information that you provide, we may ask you to upload or send us additional confirmations or to answer additional questions online to help verify your information.
  • If you send or receive high overall payment volumes or display inconsistent transactional patterns through the TenX Services, or if you have a limited transactional history with us, we will conduct a background check on you by obtaining information about you and/or your business, and potentially (if legally permitted) also about your directors, shareholders and partners, from a credit reference or fraud agency referred to above. If you owe us money, we may obtain additional information about you from a fraud agency, to the extent permitted by law. TenX, at its sole discretion, reserves the right to periodically retrieve and review a business and/or consumer credit report supplied by such credit reference or fraud agency for any account, and reserves the right to close an account based on information obtained during this credit review process.

2.2 Provision of the TenX Services: We also will collect the following information to provide you with the TenX Services:

  1. Using your Device :

When you use the TenX Services using any device (whether connected to TenX wirelessly or by a fixed line or otherwise), we will additionally collect and store device sign-on data (including but not limited to device ID) and geolocation data in order to provide the TenX Services.

  1. Loyalty Information :

If we allow you to link your membership of an eligible loyalty scheme to your account, we need your loyalty scheme membership details to enable us to track your membership and calculate applicable fees, discounts or other loyalty benefits.

  1. Transaction Information :


When you use the TenX Services to send funds to someone else, we will ask you to provide information related to that transaction. This information includes the amount and type of transaction (such as purchase of goods, purchase of services, or simple peer-to-peer transfer), and the details pertaining to the identity of the third party. Also, when you send money to another TenX customer, you may be asked to provide your personal details to that customer to complete the transaction. Your personal details may then be passed on to us from that customer. We also collect the IP address and other identifying information about the computer or device you use to access your TenX account or use the TenX Services, in order to help detect possible instances of unauthorized transactions.

These data files include cookies, pixel tags, Flash cookies, or other local storage provided by your browser or associated applications (collectively "Cookies"). We use Cookies to recognize you as a customer, customize the TenX Services, content and advertising, measure promotional effectiveness, help ensure that your account security is not compromised, mitigate risk and prevent fraud, and to promote trust and safety across our sites and the TenX Services. You are free to decline our Cookies if your browser or browser add-on permits, unless our Cookies are required to prevent fraud or ensure the security of websites we control. However, declining our Cookies may interfere with your use of our website and the TenX Services.

When you communicate with us for customer service or other purposes (e.g., by emails, phone calls, tweets, etc.), or provide any feedback, we retain such information and our responses to you in the records of your account.

  1. Questionnaires, Surveys, Sweepstakes :

  1. Profile Data :


We may also collect public information about your business and your behavior on social media platforms (such as your e-mail address and the number of “likes” and “followers”), to the extent relevant to confirm an assessment of your transactions and/or your business, including its size and the size of its customer base.

2.3 We set out in Section 3 below greater detail (in addition to what is set out in the foregoing of this Section 2) on how we use the information we collect.

  1. perform creditworthiness and solvency checks, compare information for accuracy, and verify it with third parties.

3.2 Questionnaires, Sweepstakes, Surveys and Profile Data: If you choose to answer our optional questionnaires or surveys, we may use such information to improve the TenX Services, send you marketing or advertising information, manage the sweepstakes, or as otherwise explained in detail in the survey itself.

We use your email or physical address to confirm your opening of a TenX account, to send you notice of payments that you send or receive through TenX, to send you information about important changes to our products and services, and to send notices and other disclosures required by law. Generally, users cannot opt out of these communications, but they will be primarily informational in nature rather than promotional.

We also use your email address to send you other types of communications that you can control, including "news” and “notice of special third-party promotions”. You can choose whether to receive some, all or none of these communications when you complete the registration process, or at any time thereafter, by logging in to your account and then selecting settings and updating your preferences.

3.4 Other purposes: In some cases, we will also use your information for the purposes of, or in connection with:

  1. an official request from a public or judicial authority where either compelled by law or where appropriate in all the circumstances;
  1. applicable legal or regulatory requirements;
  1. financial accounting and invoicing purposes;
  1. maintaining and managing insurance and insurance claims relating to our business;
  1. services we receive from our professional advisors, such as lawyers, accountants, insurance brokers and consultants;
  1. the transfer to a potential buyer, transferee, merger partner or seller and their advisers in connection with an actual or potential transfer or merger of part or all of TenX’s business or assets, or any associated rights or interests, or to acquire a business or enter into a merger with it; and
  1. protecting our rights and those of the TenX Group.


4. Marketing

We may combine your information with other information we collect from other companies and use it to improve and personalize the TenX Services and send marketing communications to you. You will only receive such marketing communications from us or may participate in our ad-customization programs if you have expressly consented to doing so. If you have consented, but no longer wish to receive marketing communications from us or participate in our ad-customization programs, simply update your preferences.



5. How We Share your Information with Other Third Parties

We will share your information with the following types of third parties in the circumstances described below.

5.1 Disclose necessary information to the police and other law enforcement and/or fraud prevention agencies:


Such entities include security forces, competent governmental, inter-governmental or supranational bodies, regulatory authorities and recognised self-regulatory authorities. Disclosure to such entities will be made where (i) the law (including but without limitation the the General Data Protection Regulation, the applicable regulations on the US Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (the “FATCA Law”), and regulations on the OECD common reporting standard (the “ CRS Law”)) compels or permits us; or (ii) we have reason to believe it is appropriate for us to cooperate with such entities for checks in relation to fraud detection and prevention, anti-money laundering, know-your-client and countering of the financing of terrorism, or investigations in relation to any other illegal activity or potential illegal activity. If you are covered by the FATCA Law or CRS Law, we are required to give you notice of the information about you that we may transfer to various authorities.

5.2 Disclose necessary information to other third parties such as payment processors, auditors, financial products providers, business partners, marketing and public relations agencies, shipping and courier companies, TenX Group companies, marketplaces, service providers and your agents or legal representatives:


Such disclosure is required for purposes of our provision of the TenX Services, investigations into transactions on breach or potential breach of our terms and conditions, support of our business operations, checks in relation to fraud detection and prevention, anti-money laundering, know-your-client and countering of the financing of terrorism, investigations in relation to any other illegal activity or potential illegal activity, bill collection, marketing, provision of customer support services and public relations purposes.

5.3 Disclose necessary information to intellectual property rights owners:

Such disclosure is required under the applicable national law in the event that an owner of intellectual property rights commences any action or pursues a claim against TenX for an out-of-court information disclosure due to an infringement of their intellectual property rights for which the TenX Services have been used.


5.4 Disclose necessary information to card networks and schemes:

Such disclosure is required in response to the requirements of the card networks through which your use of the TenX Services may rely on (such as Visa and Mastercard).

5.5 Grant access to information in event of mergers or acquisitions involving TenX:

As with any other business, it is possible that in the future TenX could merge with, or be acquired by, another company. If such merger or acquisition occurs, the successor company will have access to your Account Information maintained by TenX, and this Privacy Policy continues to apply to such successor company unless and until it is amended.

5.6 Disclosing transactional details of TenX users in event of transfer of funds between them:


If you are a registered TenX user and you are sending funds or transacting with another registered TenX user, as a part of the transaction, the name, email address, date of sign-up and pertinent transactional details of both parties will be shared as a part of transaction notification. However, your card number, bank account and other financial information will not be revealed to anyone whom you have paid or who has paid you through the TenX Services or third parties that use the TenX Services, except with your express permission or if we are required to do so pursuant to credit card rules, a court order or other legal process.

5.7 Disclosing information to sellers when TenX users use purchase goods/services using the TenX Services:

If you are buying goods or services and pay through TenX, we may provide the seller with the delivery address for the goods and your billing address to complete your transaction. If an attempt to pay your seller fails, or is later invalidated, we may also provide your seller with details of the unsuccessful payment. To facilitate dispute resolutions, we may provide a buyer with the seller's address so that goods can be returned to the seller.

5.8 Disclosing information to loyalty schemes of which TenX users are members:

If you link your membership of an eligible loyalty scheme to your account in our mobile app, we will share your loyalty scheme membership ID with the relevant loyalty scheme when you pay using TenX. If you remove your loyalty scheme membership ID from your Account, we will stop sharing this information.

5.9 Disclosing information to third party service providers who facilitate payments from or to you:

We work with third parties to enable them to accept or facilitate payments from or to you using the TenX Services. In doing so, a third party may share information about you with us such as your email address or phone number, when a payment is sent to you or when you are attempting to pay that third party. We use this information to confirm that you are a TenX customer and that TenX can be enabled to make a payment, or where a payment is sent to you to send you a notification that you have received a payment. Also, if you request that we validate your status as a TenX customer with a third party, we will do so. Please note that third parties you receive funds or buy from may have their own privacy policies, and TenX is not responsible for their operations, including but not limited to their information handling practices.

6. Cross Border Transfers of your Information

6.1 Please note that some of the recipients of your information referred to above will be based in countries outside of Singapore. TenX is committed to adequately protecting your information regardless of where the data resides and to providing appropriate protection for your information where such data is transferred outside of Singapore.

6.2 TenX will use best efforts to ensure that the third party service providers engaged by the TenX Group in connection with the TenX Services will not transfer information about you to a place outside Singapore without the prior written consent of the TenX Group. In the event that the TenX Group provides such consent, TenX will use best efforts to procure that the relevant third party service provider provides a written undertaking to the TenX Group that the information about you which is transferred outside Singapore will be protected at a standard that is at least comparable to that under the Personal Data Protection (No. 26 of 2012) of Singapore. If the relevant third party service provider transfers information about you to any person overseas, TenX will use best efforts to procure that such third party service provider procures the same written undertaking from such person.

7. Retention of your Account Information


7.1 We will retain your information for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes outlined in Section 3. However, we will retain your information for a longer period where required by law and for the duration of any statutory limitation period for claims.

7.2 In general, although there are limited exceptions, we will retain your information during the period when you are using the TenX Services and for at least seven (7) years after your use of the TenX Services ceases.

8. Information Security

8.1 TenX is committed to handling your information with high standards of information security. We use computer safeguards such as firewalls and data encryption, we enforce physical access controls to our buildings and files, and we authorise access to information only for those employees who require it to fulfil their job responsibilities.

8.2 The security of your TenX account also relies on your protection of your TenX password. You may not share your TenX password with anyone. TenX representatives will never ask you for your password, so any email or other communication requesting your password should be treated as unauthorized and suspicious and forwarded to support@tenx.com. If you do share your TenX password with a third party for any reason, including because the third party has promised to provide you additional services such as account aggregation, the third party will have access to your account and your information, and you may be responsible for actions taken using your password. If you believe someone else has obtained access to your password, please change it immediately by logging in to your account and changing your Profile settings, and also contact us right away.

9. Accountability

Our privacy office and our data protection officer are responsible for ensuring that our day-to-day procedures comply with this Privacy Policy. If you have any questions about this Privacy Policy, TenX's information practices, or your dealings with TenX in relation to your information, you can contact us by emailing support@tenx.tech.
