As a general rule, the data we process about you (collected via the site, any of our apps or otherwise) will be stored and processed within the European Union (EU)/European Economic Area (EEA) or any other non-EEA country deemed by the European Commission to offer an adequate level of protection.
In some cases, it may be necessary for us to transfer your personal data to a non-EEA country not considered by the European Commission to offer an adequate level of protection (for example to one or more of our data processors located there). In such cases, you are assured that we have contractually bound such third-parties to adhere to EU laws pertaining to the protection of personal including but not restricted to the General Data Protection Regulation (Regulation 2016/679(EU)).

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.
8. Data retention
HOW LONG WILL YOU USE MY PERSONAL DATA FOR?
We will retain your personal data only for as long as is necessary (taking into consideration the purpose for which it was originally obtained). The criteria we use to determine what is ‘necessary’ depends on the particular personal data in question and the specific relationship we have with you (including its duration).
Our normal practice is to determine whether there is/are any specific EU and/or Maltese law(s) (for example tax or corporate laws) permitting or even obliging us to keep certain personal data for a certain period of time (in which case we will keep the personal data for the maximum period indicated by any such law). For example, any data that can be deemed to be ‘accounting records’ must be kept for ten (10 years).
We would also have to determine whether there are any laws and/or contractual provisions that may be invoked against us by you and/or third parties and if so, what the prescriptive periods for such actions are (this is usually five (5) years, in line with prevailing and relevant legislation). In the latter case, we will keep any relevant personal data that we may need to defend ourselves against any claim(s), challenge(s) or other such action(s) by you and/or third parties for such time as is necessary.
Where your personal data is no longer required by us, we will either securely delete or anonymise the personal data in question.
In some circumstances you can ask us to delete your data: see Your Legal Rights below for further information.
In the case we do not delete your data, we will anonymise your personal data (so that it can no longer be associated with you) for research or statistical purposes, in which case we may use this information indefinitely without further notice to you.
9. Your legal rights
You have certain rights under the law with regards to how your personal information is processed. These rights are:
- The right to be informed how your personal information is being used.

If you would like to make a request for information, please contact us at email@example.com or by writing to us.
No fee usually required
You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal data (or to exercise any of the other rights). However, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request is clearly unfounded, repetitive or excessive. Alternatively, we could refuse to comply with your request in these circumstances.
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 one month. Occasionally it could 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.
We are committed to protecting your privacy and we will not collect any personal information about you unless you provide it voluntarily. Any personal information you communicate to us will be processed in accordance with the GDPR, the Data Protection Act, 2018 (Chapter 586 of the Laws of Malta) and any other applicable privacy regulations that may be in force from time to time.
