  12. Online Behavioural Tracking

    To assist in our understanding of your interest in our websites and applications, and to store and maintain user preferences, DBS works with professional digital analytic solution providers to help us record and research certain usages and activities on parts of our websites and applications. We will only collect information about how you use a computer, mobile phone or any other electronic device (together referred to here as a "device") that takes you online to browse our websites and applications by using cookies and similar technologies.

    A cookie is a small computer file that is sent from a website to the browser of a device and stored in that device. Each website can send its own cookies to the browser but the browser only permits a website to access the cookies it has sent to the browser previously. The cookie does not contain the user's name, address, phone number, email address, or anything that personally identifies the user. No personally identifiable information about you is collected or shared by DBS with the professional digital analytic solution providers or any other third parties through this research and all information will be cleaned up 13 months after the data collection.

    Currently we do not provide functions to opt out cookie tracking. The reason is all opt out settings for cookies tracking will become invalid if you delete or clear your cookies, or if you change the web browser you are using. To avoid confusion, if you do not want us to collect data from your browser, we suggest you configure your privacy settings within the browser. Please note that if you block all cookies entirely, DBS websites and applications including DBS iBanking or DBS IDEALTM may not function properly.
