10. Data Ownership
Kaddra processes, stores and hosts the data and content that we receive from our clients or when our clients submit or upload such information onto the Kaddra platform. The client always maintains ownership of its data and content and may request at any time that such data be returned or deleted.
Kaddra does not access or use the content for any purpose without the consent of the client. We do not use client data or content or derive information from it for marketing or advertising purposes nor do we engage in the sale of client data or content for profit or otherwise. However, we may store, aggregate, analyse or otherwise process client data that is anonymised, i.e. which does not contain identifiable data linking to specific clients or individuals, for the purposes of improving our systems and services.
We take our responsibility to protect and safeguard the data we have received from our Clients seriously and have implemented physical and technical processes to safeguard the data and prevent unauthorised access or leakage of client data and content.
Whilst we are committed to processing client data and content according to standards prescribed by the PDPA, there will be situations where we may have to depend on third parties to provide certain services and in such cases, we ensure similar standards of data protection either by including data protection requirements in our contracts, or through the legal and regulatory framework of the jurisdiction.
For example, we store data that we have received in a cloud storage system in Singapore which is hosted by a third-party provider, namely Amazon Web Services (“AWS”). We thus rely on AWS to also implement high standards of data protection through our contract as well as through them having to comply with the law.
Generally, personal data and client content may be transmitted over an open network, such as internet or email and we cannot guarantee the confidentiality of any communication or material transmitted via such open networks. In such cases, data may be lost or accessed by unauthorised parties. We do not accept any liability whether direct or indirect for loss of personal data during transmission via open network, including the internet.
We ask our clients to maintain their own data privacy policies and guidelines, so that they may inform their employees, representatives, agents of the sharing of personal data. We also ask our clients to implement their own security measures for data protection in addition to what we have, for added safety.
The Client acknowledges that the Kaddra platform and content are protected by copyright, trademark, and other laws of Singapore and foreign countries. You agree not to remove, alter or obscure any copyright, trademark, service mark or other proprietary rights notices incorporated in or accompanying the Kaddra platform or content.
The Client agrees not to do any of the following:
- Modify or create derivative works from the Kaddra platform;
- Use, display, mirror or frame the Kaddra platform or any individual element within the Kaddra platform, the Kaddra name, any Kaddra trademark, logo or other proprietary information, or the layout and design of any page or form contained on a page, without Kaddra’s express written consent;
- Access, tamper with, or use non-public areas of the Kaddra platform, Kaddra’s computer systems, or the technical delivery systems of Kaddras providers;
- Attempt to probe, scan or test the vulnerability of any Kaddra system or network or breach any security or authentication measures;
- Avoid, bypass, remove, deactivate, impair, descramble or otherwise circumvent any technological measure implemented by Kaddra or any of Kaddra’s providers or any other third party (including another user) to protect the Kaddra platform;
- Attempt to access or search the Kaddra platform or download Content from the Kaddra platform through the use of any engine, software, tool, agent, device or mechanism (including spiders, robots, crawlers, data mining tools or the like) other than the software and/or search agents provided by Kaddra or other generally available third-party web browsers;
- Use the Kaddra platform, or any portion thereof, for any commercial or competitive purpose or for the benefit of any third party or in any manner not permitted by these Terms and Conditions;
- Attempt to decipher, decompile, disassemble or reverse engineer any of the software used to provide the Kaddra platform;

- Impersonate or misrepresent the Client’s affiliation with any person or entity;
- Violate any Kaddra platformlicable law or regulation; or
- Encourage or enable any other individual to do any of the foregoing.
The Company reserves the right, but is not obligated, to remove or disable access to the platform, at any time and without notice. The Company has the right to investigate violations of the Terms or conduct that affects the Site. The Company may also consult and cooperate with law enforcement authorities to prosecute users who violate the law.
The Client maintains ownership of any information that the Customer has uploaded, created, stored or received on the Kaddra platform, however the Customer grants Kaddra a license to use, store or process the information for the purposes of providing the Service.
Links to Third Party Websites or Resources
The Kaddra solution may contain third-party licensed software or resources which are provided as part of the total Kaddra solution Kaddra will do best efforts to ensure that these licensed software providers have the same standards in physical and technical processes to safeguard the data and prevent unauthorised access or leakage of client data and content and are compliant to to PDPA.
11. Back-up Clauses

There are no third-party beneficiaries to this Agreement.
12.1 Limited Performance Warranty.

Further obligations of Parties are found in Clause 4.
12.2 Warranty of Non-Infringement.
(a) In General. The Company warrants that the Client’s use of the Services as anticipated by this Agreement will not infringe on the rights of any third party. If a claim from a third party finds the Client’s use of the Platform infringing on the rights of a third party, the Company will, at its sole expense and as the Client’s agreed sole remedy from the Company, defend against such claim and pay any final judgment against the Client, provided that the Client promptly notifies the Company of any such claim in writing and the Company is given sole control over the defense and settlement of such claim.

The foregoing warranty shall not apply to infringement caused by (i) the Client’s modification or use of the Platform other than as contemplated by the Agreement; (ii) the Client’s failure to use corrections or enhancements made available by the Company to the extent that such corrections or enhancements would make the Platform non-infringing; or (iii) information, specification or materials provided by the Client or third party acting for the Client.

13.2 Waivers. A failure of a Party to enforce any of the provisions of this Agreement shall in no event be considered a waiver of such provision and a waiver of a provision by a Party shall not preclude that Party from later enforcing any other provision of this Agreement.

No waiver shall have any effect unless it is specific and in writing.
