- INTERNATIONAL TRANSFERS
It may be necessary for the provision of our Services and to the extent required for specific purposes, as stipulated in this Privacy Notice to transfer your personal information outside of the European Economic Area (“EEA”) where necessary (such as where we use service providers outside the EEA).
Certain restrictions may apply where personal data is being transferred by us to a ‘third country’ outside the EEA or the United Kingdom with such transfers referred to as “restricted transfers”. The data protection and other laws of these third countries may not be as comprehensive as those in Malta or the EEA.
Generally, we will only perform restricted transfers where the transfer will be adequately protected by measures such as the following:
- where the transfer is to a territory which has been deemed ‘adequate’ under applicable data protection legislation via applicable adequacy regulations; or
- where ‘appropriate safeguards’ are provided.
In the absence of adequacy regulations or appropriate safeguards as outlined above, we may also rely on derogations for specific situations as contained within the Malta GDPR. In particular, we may collect and transfer your personal data outside the EEA in any of the following circumstances:
- with your explicit consent;
- to perform a contract we may have with you (or for taking pre-contractual steps);
- to perform a contract we may have with a third party which has been concluded in your interest;
- for important reasons of public interest;
- for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims; or
- to protect your vital interests or those of a third party (where you are physically or legally incapable of giving consent).
We may also perform restricted transfers in ‘one-off’ cases where a transfer is not repetitive, concerns a limited number of data subjects, and is necessary for the purposes of compelling legitimate interests pursued by us, which are not overridden by your interests or rights and freedoms, and only after we have assessed all relevant circumstances.
- DATA SECURITY
We have put in place appropriate security measures to prevent your personal data from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorised way, altered or disclosed. In addition, we limit access to your personal data to those employees, agents, contractors and other third parties who have a business need to know. They will only process your personal data on our instructions, and they are subject to a duty of confidentiality.
We have put in place procedures to deal with any suspected personal data breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a breach where we are legally required to do so and in accordance with the requirements of applicable law.
- DATA RETENTION
HOW LONG WILL YOU USE MY PERSONAL DATA FOR?
We will only retain your personal data for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, or reporting requirements.
To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which we process your personal data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements.
Where your personal data is no longer required by us, we will either securely delete or anonymise the personal data in question.
- YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS
Under certain circumstances, you have rights under different data protection laws in relation to your personal data and depending on your individual circumstances. For example, you may have additional rights under the EU GDPR if you are based in the EEA. You have a right to:
Be informed about how we use your personal data. This information is contained in this Privacy Notice.
Request access to your personal data (commonly known as a “data subject access request”). This enables you to receive a copy of the personal data we hold about you and to check that we are lawfully processing it.
Request correction of the personal data that we hold about you. This enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate data we hold about you corrected, though we may need to verify the accuracy of the new data you provide to us.
Request erasure of your personal data. This enables you to ask us to delete or remove personal data where there is no good reason for us continuing to process it. You also have the right to ask us to delete or remove your personal data where you have successfully exercised your right to object to processing (see below), where we may have processed your information unlawfully or where we are required to erase your personal data to comply with local law. Note, however, that we may not always be able to comply with your request of erasure for specific legal reasons which will be notified to you, if applicable, at the time of your request.
Object to processing of your personal data where we are relying on a legitimate interest (or those of a third party) and there is something about your particular situation which makes you want to object to processing on this ground as you feel it impacts on your fundamental rights and freedoms. You also have the right to object where we are processing your personal data for direct marketing purposes. In some cases, we may demonstrate that we have compelling legitimate grounds to process your information which override your rights and freedoms.
Request restriction of processing of your personal data. This enables you to ask us to suspend the processing of your personal data in the following scenarios: (a) if you want us to establish the data’s accuracy; (b) where our use of the data is unlawful but you do not want us to erase it; (c) where you need us to hold the data even if we no longer require it as you need it to establish, exercise or defend legal claims; or (d) you have objected to our use of your data but we need to verify whether we have overriding legitimate grounds to use it.
Request the transfer of your personal data to you or to a third party. We will provide to you, or a third party you have chosen, your personal data in a structured, commonly used, machine-readable format. Note that this right only applies to automated information which you initially provided consent for us to use or where we used the information to perform a contract with you.
Withdraw consent at any time where we are relying on consent to process your personal data. However, this will not affect the lawfulness of any processing carried out before you withdraw your consent. If you withdraw your consent, we may not be able to provide certain products or services to you. We will advise you if this is the case at the time you withdraw your consent.
WHAT WE MAY NEED FROM YOU
We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access your personal data (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is a security measure to ensure that personal data is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it. We may also contact you to ask you for further information in relation to your request to speed up our response.
TIME LIMIT TO RESPOND
We try to respond to all legitimate requests within two months. Occasionally it may take us longer than a month if your request is particularly complex or you have made a number of requests. In this case, we will notify you and keep you updated.
RIGHT TO MAKE A COMPLAINT

However, should you have any concerns in connection with this Privacy Notice, we encourage that you get in contact with us in the first instance on the contact details contained in this Privacy Notice.

You have the right to make a complaint at any time to the Information and Data Protection Commissioner Office (IDPC), the Maltese supervisory authority for data protection issues.
