11. Your Data Protection Rights under applicable legislation
The General Data Protection Regulation (EU) 2016/679 (GDPR) and the Data Protection Act (Chapter 586 of the Laws of Malta) regulate the processing of personal data whether held electronically or in manual form. Skoperta is set to fully comply with the Data Protection Principles as set out in such data protection legislation.
You are entitled to know, free of charge, what type of information Skoperta holds and processes about you and why, who has access to it, how it is held and kept up to date, for how long it is kept, and what Skoperta is doing to comply with data protection legislation.
The GDPR establishes a formal procedure for dealing with data subject access requests. All data subjects have the right to access any personal information kept about them by Skoperta either on computer or in manual files. Requests for access to personal information by data subjects are to be made in writing and sent to Skoperta on email@example.com. Your identification details such as ID number, name and surname have to be submitted with the request for access. In case we encounter identification difficulties, you may be required to present an identification document.
Skoperta aims to comply as quickly as possible with requests for access to personal information and will ensure that it is provided within a reasonable timeframe and in any case not later than one month from receipt of request, unless there is good reason for delay. When a request for access cannot be met within a reasonable time, the reason will be explained in writing to the data subject making the request. Should there be any data breaches, the data subject will be informed accordingly.
All data subjects have the right to request that their information is not used or is amended if it results to be incorrect.
Data subjects may also request that their data is erased (‘right to be forgotten’) in accordance with the following:
- the personal data is no longer necessary in relation to the purpose for which it was collected or otherwise processed;
- the data subject withdraws consent on which the processing is based and where there is no other legal ground for the processing;
- the data subject objects to the processing and there is no overriding legitimate grounds for the processing;
- the personal data has been processed unlawfully;
- the personal data has to be erased for compliance with a legal obligation
The right to be forgotten is restricted by Skoperta if the personal data is necessary for any of the following grounds:
- for compliance with a legal obligation to which Skoperta is subject or for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest
- for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims;
- for archiving purposes in the public interest, scientific or historical research purposes or statistical purposes in so far as the right to erasure is likely to render impossible or seriously impair the achievement of the objectives of that processing.
