In exchange for your attendance at and participation in the Feedback & Engagement Bus Tour (the “Event”), you agree to be bound and abide by these Terms of Participation. Your participation in the Event constitutes your acceptance of these Terms of Participation.

REACH Singapore (“REACH”) is the Government's Feedback Unit. We aim to gather and gauge ground sentiments, engage citizens and promote active citizenry. Our face-to-face engagement platforms, including events, dialogues, public forums and focus group discussions, provide channels for you to share your feedback with the Government. Feedback received will be recorded (whether through the use of audio/sound recordings, or in writing) by REACH, and surfaced to relevant agencies. We also facilitate communication between citizens and agencies by proactively initiating discussion on various topics.

REACH (representing the Government of the Republic of Singapore) may add to, delete or modify any or all of the terms and conditions in these Terms of Participation at any time without notice to you.
