Memo - Recording of Telephone Conversations (Issued on 7/3/18)

In a recent case regarding rescheduling of a match, a player used a recorded telephone conversation as evident to support his case.  While the case has been settled, I would like to remind that the recording of a telephone conversation without informing the other party is extremely impolite and may contravene the Privacy Ordinance.

From now on, unless both parties were aware that the telephone conversation will be recorded, such recording will not be accepted as evidence should a dispute arise. We recommend all agreement should be in written format, no matter it is eMail, text message or Whatsapp messages.

Hope this can avoid any disputes in the future.
