III. General Remarks on data processing
1. Scope of personal data processing
We gather and use personal data of our users generally only as far as it is necessary for providing a functional website as well as our contents and services. Gathering and using personal data of our users normally will happen only after the user’s consent was given. An exception is made for those cases where for factual reasons no prior consent could be obtained and processing the data is allowed by legal provisions.
2. Legal basis for processing personal data
Insofar as we receive consent for the processing procedures from the affected person, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves as legal basis for processing personal data.
For processing personal data necessary for executing a contract the affected person is contracting party of, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR serves as legal basis. This also applies to processing procedures necessary to perform precontractual measures.
Insofar as processing personal data is necessary in order to fulfill legal obligations our company is subject to, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c GDPR serves as legal basis.
In case vital interests of the affected person or another natural person call for personal data to be processed, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. d GDPR serves as legal basis.
If processing is necessary for upholding a justified interest of our company or a third party, as long as the interests, fundamental rights, and fundamental freedoms of the affected person do not outweigh the former interest, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR serves as legal basis for processing.
3. Purpose of processing personal data
We may collect and process data in order to enable you to use our services. This also includes processing for the purpose of data security and the stability and operational security of our system as well as accounting purposes.
We and our service partners process data in order to provide you newsletter services should you decide to use it.
4. Data erasure and storage duration
All personal data of the affected person get deleted or blocked as soon as the reason for storing them expires. Besides, storing can take place when intended so by European or national lawmakers in form of Union regulations, laws, or other provisions the liable entity is subject to. Blocking or deletion of data also takes place when a storage period prescribed by said norms expires, unless there exists a necessity for continuing to store the data to conclude or fulfill a contract.
5. Data security
We are eager to make arrangements to a reasonable extent in order to prevent unauthorized access or distortion of these data and minimize the according risks. Nonetheless, providing personal data, be it personally, by phone, or via internet, always involves a certain amount of risk as no technological system can be entirely free from the possibility of getting manipulated or sabotaged.
We process the data gathered from you in accordance with Maltese and European data protection laws. All employees are bound to data secrecy and data protection regulations and trained accordingly. For payment processes, your data is transmitted in an encrypted form using the SSL method.
IV. Provision of services and creation of log files
1. Description and scope of data processing
Whenever our services are solicited, our system automatically collects data and information on the visiting computer system.
The following data is collected during this:
URL of the referring website from which the file was requested
Data and time of access
Browser type and operating system as well as hardware information
The site you visited
Quantity of data transmitted
Access status (file transferred, file not found, etc.)
Duration and frequency of use
The data is also stored in the log files of our system.
2. Legal basis for data processing
Art. 6 Para. 1 f GDPR is the legal basis for the temporary storage of data and log files.
3. Purpose of data processing
Temporary storage of the IP address by the system is necessary in order to deliver services to the computer of the user.
To do so, the IP address of the user must be stored for the duration of the session.
Data is stored in log files in order to ensure the functionality of the services.
Additionally, the data also serves to optimize the services and to ensure the security of our IT systems.
Data is stored over the duration of the session for purposes of combating fraud (e.g. payment fraud, violation of the rules of play through the use of multiple accounts by the same person) and for the purposes of IT security (e.g. protection against DDoS attacks).
Otherwise, the data is stored merely for purposes of statistical evaluation.
In order to monitor compliance with the rules of use and rules of play, we reserve the right to store IP addresses and log files for a certain period of time after our services are utilized.
In particular, this procedure serves to avoid certain cases of misuse or to resolve them and be able to forward the data in individual cases to investigative authorities or to rectify bugs. Additionally, any evaluation of data is carried out in an anonymous manner wherever possible.
After this period ends, the IP address and log files are completely erased, unless there exist mandatory statutory storage requirements or concrete criminal or abuse proceedings.
For these purposes, our legitimate and overriding interest is to process data in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 f GDPR.
4. Duration of storage
The data is erased as soon as it is no longer required to achieve the purpose for which it was collected.
5. Option to object and erase
Data collection to provide services and data storage in log files is absolutely required in order to ensure the uninterrupted provision of services.
As a consequence, the user has no option to object.
V. E-mail Contact
1. Description and Extent of Data Processing
Making contact is possible via the e-mail address provided. In this case the user’s personal data transmitted along with the e-mail are saved.
In this context no data are passed on to third parties. The data are used to process the request exclusively.
2. Legal basis for Data Processing
Legal basis for processing data when the user’s consent is present is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR.
Legal basis for processing data transmitted in the course of sending an e-mail is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. If the e-mail contact is targeted at forming a contract, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR is additional legal basis for processing.
3. Purpose of Data Processing
Processing the personal data for us serves the sole purpose of processing the contact. This is also what makes up the required justified interest in processing the data.
4. Duration of Storage
The data are deleted once they are no longer needed for the purpose they were gathered for. For personal data transmitted via e-mail that is the case when the respective conversation with the user has come to an end. The conversation has come to an end when it can be concluded from the circumstances that the issue in question has been resolved conclusively.
5. Possibilities of Objection and Removal
The user has the possibility to at any time revoke their consent to having personal data processed. If the user makes contact with us, they may at any time object to having their personal data stored. In such an event, the conversation cannot be continued. All personal data saved in the course of making contact will be deleted in this case.
VI. Data Protection for Applicants and During Application Process
We gather and process personal data of applicants for the purpose of handling the application process. The data is used to check your suitability for the position (or, as the case may be, other job openings in our company) and complete the application process. The processing may take place electronically as well. That is the case in particular if an applicant transmits their respective application documents to the head of department electronically, for example via e-mail or by using the online form that can be found on the website. Your applicant data will be sighted by the human resources department after receiving them. Suitable applications are then forwarded internally to the department heads in charge of the respective vacant position. Then the further procedure gets coordinated. As a matter of principal, in our company only those who need access to your data to ensure an orderly run of our application process will be granted it. If the person in charge of processing an application enters an employment contract with an applicant, the transmitted data, bearing in mind all legal provisions, will be saved for the purpose of handling the employment. If the person in charge of processing an application does not enter an employment contract with the applicant, the application documents will be deleted after announcing the rejection, unless the person in charge of processing the application holds other justified interests opposing deletion. Other justified interests in this sense are, for example, a burden of proof in a lawsuit under the General Equal Treatment Act. Legal basis for processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR. Should the occasion arise that after completing the application process the data are required for prosecution, the data can be processed based on the requirements of Art. 6 GDPR, especially to appreciate justified interests pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) GDPR. Our interest in that case would be assertion of or defense against claims. We will delete data six months after a rejection unless you gave consent to a longer period of storing. Should your application be crowned by success in form of being offered a position, the data will be moved from the applicant data system over to our human resource management system.

When exercising this right, you also have the right to ensure that the personal data concerning you is transferred directly from one responsible party to another responsible party, provided this is technically feasible.
The freedom and rights of others may not be affected by this.
The right of data transferability does not apply for processing personal data that is required to carry out a task that is in the public interest or in the practice of public authority conferred to the responsible party;
7. Right to object
You have the right, for reasons relating to your particular situation, to submit at any time objection to processing of the personal data concerning you which is conducted based on Art. 6 Para. 1 e or f GDPR; this also applies to profiling based on these conditions.

You have the right to withdraw your declaration of consent at any time.
The withdrawal of consent does not affect the legality of the processing conducted on the basis of the consent up to the date of the withdrawal.
9. Automated decision in individual cases including profiling
You have the right not to be subjected to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which will have legal effect or similarly affect you in a similar manner.
This does not apply if the decision
a) is required to conclude or carry out a contract between you and the responsible party,
b) is permissible on the basis of Union or member state law to which the responsible party is subject, and that legislation contains suitable measures to safeguard your rights and freedoms and your legitimate interests, or
c) is made with your explicit consent.
However, these decisions must not be based on special categories of personal data under Art. 9 Para. 1 GDPR, provided that Art. 9 Para. 2 a or g does not apply, and reasonable measures have been taken to protect your rights and freedoms and your legitimate interests.
With respect to the situations mentioned in (a) and (c), the responsible party shall take appropriate measures to protect your rights and freedoms and your legitimate interests, including at least the right to obtain the intervention of a person on the part of the responsible party to express his own position and challenge the decision.
10. Right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority
Without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial legal remedy, you have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the member state of your place of residence or employment or the place of the alleged infringement, if you believe that the processing of the personal data concerning you is violates the GDPR.
The supervisory authority to which the complaint has been submitted shall inform the complainant of the status and results of the complaint, including the possibility of a judicial remedy pursuant to Article 78 of the GDPR.
