Singapore: Enterprise Singapore announces national standard on e-commerce

Enterprise Singapore released, on 12 June 2020, a statement announcing the introduction of a national standard on e-commerce transactions to assist businesses with improving their online retail processes and policies ('the Standard'). In particular, the Standard requires e-retailers and e-marketplaces to limit their data collection to what is required for a payment transaction and not use such data for other uses. In addition, the Standard notes that in relation to facilitating deliveries, reasonable precautions should be taken to secure, transmit and store personal data.
