Personal data that can be gathered via our website
You may visit Maltem’s website without having to disclose your personal data.
However, to access certain services available on our website, such as downloading documents or forms, or if you wish to receive information, sign up for our newsletter, or for any other specific reason, Maltem may ask you for your personal data. You are under no obligation to disclose personal data; if you do not wish to do so, you will simply be unable to use the services on the Maltem website.
The type of personal data gathered from Maltem’s website is as follows:
- To contact us via the website: personal information such as your name, address, email address, job title and telephone number;
- To apply for a job: personal information such as your name, email address, CV or cover letter;
- To register on our website: personal information such as your name and business contact details, and any other information relating to your request which might be collected via a specific form.
The personal data requested may either be optional or mandatory.
For which purposes and on which legal basis do we use your personal data?
Maltem uses your personal data only where required for specific purposes. Please view the table below for (i) a list of the purposes for which Maltem uses your personal data and (ii) an overview of the legal basis for each such purpose.
Justified on the basis of our legitimate interests for ensuring proper communication.
Necessary for taking steps prior to entering into a contract.
Justified on the basis of your consent. Also justified for the performance of a contract to provide you with information about our services when you already are a client, or in order to take pre-contractual steps when you are a prospect.
Where the above table states that we rely on our legitimate interests for a given purpose, we consider that our legitimate interests are not overridden by your interests, rights or freedoms, given (i) the transparency we provide on the processing activity, (ii) it is necessary, (iii) the rights you have in relation to the processing activity.
We will process your personal data for the purposes mentioned above based on your prior consent when the latter is mandatory under applicable laws.
To the extent you are asked to click on/check « I accept », « I agree » or similar buttons/checkboxes/functionalities in relation to a privacy statement, doing so will be considered as providing your consent to process your personal data.
We will not use your personal data for purposes that are incompatible with the purposes of which you have been informed, unless it is required or authorized by law, or it is in your own vital interest to do so.
Will we share your personal data with third parties?
Maltem shall under no circumstances sell or disclose your personal data to any third parties.
Where your personal data will be processed?
Given Maltem group’s international dimension, the personal data we collect may be transferred or be accessible, when necessary, internationally throughout Maltem’s sales, marketing and Human Resources Teams and between its affiliates. For technical reasons, it is also accessible to the authorized persons from our IT services.
Any such transfers throughout Maltem’s global business take place in accordance with the contractual clauses validated by the European Commission in order to guarantee that your personal data is always processed in accordance with EU privacy laws standards.
How long will your personal data be retained by us?
We will retain your personal data only for as long as is necessary for the purpose of processing it, whilst bearing in mind the need to answer any questions or resolve difficulties, improve on or offer new services and comply with its legal obligations (for example, accounting and legal time limits for data storage). This means that Maltem may retain your personal data for a reasonable length of time once it has finished processing it, in accordance with the legal and regulatory restrictions which apply to Maltem (for example, accounting and legal time limits for data storage), and long enough to settle any disputes, or exercise or uphold Maltem’s rights in the countries it operates in.
Once we no longer require the personal data we collect, Maltem destroys and deletes it securely.
Maltem has implemented certain technical and organisational measures to prevent any unauthorised access, misuse, disclosure, unauthorised alteration, illegal destruction or accidental loss of your personal data.
However, providing personal data (either directly on the website, by telephone or via the Internet) is never entirely risk-free and electronic communication systems cannot be completely protected from sabotage or hacking. The Internet is an open, insecure system and Maltem may not be held liable for the security of personal data transfer.
Which rights do you have with respect to the processing of your personal data and how to exercise them?
You have the right to access your personal data at any time. You also have the right to request that the data be rectified, deleted, or to limit or object to the processing of your personal data, as well as the right to data portability as stipulated by applicable regulations.
Your request must specify your full name and address in order to correspond with you. Your request will be answered without undue delay, and in any event, within one month of receipt of the request. That period may be extended by two further months due to the complexity of the request or due to a significant number of requests to be processed by Maltem. In such a case, you will be promptly informed of the extension of the response period.
