The following notice and instructions of online athlete card phase 3 system are prepared for Team Manager (TM) of SDBA’s affiliates and non affiliates.
For Personal Data Protection Act (PDPA) compliance and requirement, NRIC or Passport information will no longer be used or collected. Hence, SDBA will remove the NRIC and Passport information from the existing Athlete Cards (Card) system. The NRIC or the Passport number was used to generate the QR code for scanning purpose. In order to meet the PDPA requirement, the QR code algorithm of all existing SDBA athlete cards including SDBA non affiliate index 9 event cards, will be reissued free of charge under this exercise. The reissued Card will be carrying the same card number of the existing Card.
After the Phase 3 implementation of SDBA Athlete Card system, all SDBA dragon boat race events will be using the online system. The manual boat marshalling practice will be obsolete; therefore, Team Name appearing on the Card is no longer required.
Due to the requirements of PDPA and the impact of removal of Team name on Card, the TMs of Primary team (Affiliate Team 1) need to make an effort to request reissuance of Cards belong to the team. SDBA will only distribute Cards to the TM of Primary team based on the athlete card database.
For query or usage of the online athlete card system, please seek further clarification with SDBA or your TMs.
