By submitting the “Contact us” Online Form on https://identitymalta.com, you provide Identity Malta Agency (“IMA”) with personal data (the “Data”) and thus become a “data subject”.
The aim of this policy is to comply with our transparency and fairness obligations under GDPR and to inform you about who will be processing your Data, for what purpose, for how long it will be kept, with whom it will be shared and about your rights as a data subject under GDPR.
You may submit personal data of individuals other than yourself with this Online Form (i.e. family members, etc.). IMA has assessed that, in said cases, informing these individuals proves impossible and would involve a disproportionate effort. IMA will still take appropriate measures to protect the rights, freedoms and legitimate interests of these individuals.
