2. SCOPE

This Policy shall apply to any use of the Website, whatever the method or medium used. It details the conditions at which the Company may collect, keep, use and save information that relates to you, as well as the choices that you have made in relation to the collection, utilisation and Disclosure of your Personal data.

3. ACCEPTANCE

By browsing the Website, Visitors acknowledge that the Company may collect and process Personal data that relates to them and that they have read and understood this Policy and agree to be bound by it and to comply with all applicable laws and regulations. In particular, the Consent for the Processing of Personal data is given once the Visitor signs up to the mailing list on https://www.teambds.gg/. The Consent is also given when the Visitors freely submit to the Company the Personal Data. The Visitor understands and agrees that the Company is free to use this Personal Data within the limit provided by law and this Policy.

4. PRINCIPLES FOR PROCESSING PERSONAL DATA

While Processing Personal data, the Company will respect the following general principle:



a) Fairness and lawfulness
When Processing Personal data, the individual rights of the Data subjects must be protected. Personal Data must be collected and processed lawfully, in a fair manner, in good faith and must be proportionate to the objective.

b) Restriction to a specific purpose
Personal data handled by the Company should be adequate and relevant to the purpose for which they are collected and processed. This requires, in particular, ensuring that the types of Personal data collected are not excessive for the purpose for which they are collected. Subsequent changes to the purpose are only possible to a limited extent and require substantiation.

c) Transparency
The Data subject must be informed of how his/her Personal data is being handled. When the Personal data is collected, the Data subject must be informed of: the existence of the present Policy; the identity of the Data controller; the purpose of Personal data Processing; third-parties to whom the data might be transmitted.

d) Consent of the Data subject
Personal data must be collected directly from the individual concerned and the Consent of the Data subject may be required before Processing Personal data. The Consent must be obtained in writing or electronically for the purposes of documentation. The Consent is valid only if given voluntarily. If, for any reason, the Consent of the Data subject is not given before Processing Personal data, this one should be secured in writing as soon as possible after the beginning of the Processing. Personal data can be processed without Consent if it is necessary to enforce a legitimate interest of the Company. Legitimate interests are generally of a legal (e.g. filing, enforcing or defending against legal claims) or financial (e.g. valuation of companies) nature. The Processing of Personal data is also permitted if national legislation requests, requires or allows this.

e) Accuracy
Personal data kept on file must be correct and if necessary, kept up to date. Inaccurate or incomplete Personal data should not be kept on file and deleted.

In any case where cross-border transfer is done, the Company ensures that adequate protection is guaranteed for Personal data to be transferred outside of Malta and the European Economic Area (hereinafter: the “EEA”). In some specific cases when this level of protection is not guaranteed, the Company will obtain your prior Consent or establish with the Recipient of Personal data a contractual framework or sufficient safeguards that ensure an adequate level of protection abroad.

8. STORAGE OF YOUR PERSONAL DATA

Where permitted by law, by accepting the terms of this Policy, you agree to such transferring, transmission, storing and/or Processing. You also agree that such activities may take place to or in countries offering a lower level of protection than your country of residence.

9. RETENTION OF YOUR PERSONAL DATA

In accordance with applicable laws, the Company will use your Personal data for as long as necessary to satisfy the purposes for which your Personal data was collected or to comply with applicable legal requirements.

10. SECURITY OF YOUR PERSONAL DATA

The Company applies industry standards and adequate technical and organisational measures, in accordance with applicable laws, to ensure that your data is kept secure. In the event of a Personal data breach, the Company shall without undue delay, and where feasible, not later than 72 hours after having become aware of it, notify the breach to the competent supervisory authority, unless said breach is unlikely to result in a risk to your rights and freedoms. If the breach is likely to result in a high risk to your rights and freedoms, the Company shall communicate this breach to you, if it is feasible, without undue delay.

11. ACCESS TO YOUR DATA AND INFORMATION RIGHTS

You have the right to request access to or information about the Personal data relating to you which are processed by the Company. Where provided by law, you, your successors, representatives and/or proxies may (i) request deletion, correction or revision of your Personal data; (ii) oppose the data Processing; (iii) limit the use and Disclosure of your Personal data; and (iv) revoke Consent to any of our data Processing activities, if the Company is relying on your Consent and does not have another legal basis to continue Processing your data. These rights can be exercised by contacting us through our contact form or writing to us at:bds@bdsesport.com, attaching a copy of your ID. If the request is submitted by a person other than you, without providing evidence that the request is legitimately made on your behalf, the request will be rejected. The request is free of charge unless your request is unfounded or excessive (e.g. if you have already requested such Personal data multiple times in the last twelve months or if the request generates an extremely high workload). In such a case, the Company may charge you a reasonable request fee according to applicable laws. The Company may refuse, restrict or defer the provision of Personal data where it has the right to do so, for example if fulfilling the request will adversely affect the rights and freedoms of others.

12. PORTABILITY OF YOUR DATA

You also have the right to receive your Personal data, which you have provided to the Company with, in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format and have the right to transmit those data to another controller without hindrance from the Company. This right can be exercised by contacting us through our contact form or writing to us at: bds@bdsesport.com, attaching a copy of your ID. If the request is submitted by a person other than you, without providing evidence that the request is legitimately made on your behalf, the request will be rejected. The request is free of charge unless your request is unfounded or excessive (e.g. if you have already requested such Personal data multiple times in the last twelve months or if the request generates an extremely high workload). In such a case, the Company may charge you a reasonable request fee according to applicable laws. The Company may refuse, restrict or defer the provision of Personal data where it has the right to do so, for example if fulfilling the request will adversely affect the rights and freedoms of others.

13. PRIVACY BY DESIGN AND BY DEFAULT

The Company will, both at the time of the determination of the means for Processing and at the time of the Processing itself, implement appropriate technical and organizational measures, such as pseudonymization, which are designed to implement data-protection principles, such as data minimization, in an effective manner and to integrate the necessary safeguards into the Processing in order to meet the requirements of the GDPR and protect your rights. The Company will implement appropriate technical and organizational measures for ensuring that, by default, only Personal data which are necessary for each specific purpose of the Processing are processed. This obligation applies to the amount of your Personal data We collect, the extent of their Processing, the period of storage and their accessibility. These measures will ensure that by default your Personal data are not made accessible without your intervention to an indefinite number of third parties.
