You are welcome to browse the MaltaMarkt website without registering. However, if you wish to access any of the site’s services, list products or rent/buy products listed on the website, you must register and provide us with your personal information. The personal information we collect may include:

  • e-mail address, physical contact information, and (depending on the service used) sometimes financial information, such as credit card or bank account numbers;
transactional information based on your activities on the website (such as rental/purchase activity, content you generate or that relates to your account);
  • community discussions, forum discussions, chats, dispute resolution, correspondence sent to us and communications otherwise transmitted through the website;
other information from your interaction with our website, services, content, advertising, including computer and connection information, statistics on page views,
traffic to and from the website, IP address and standard web log information;
  • additional information we ask you to submit to authenticate yourself or if we believe you are violating the website policies
  • Cookies to improve navigation by remembering information entered, such as passwords
(cookies are generally small temporary files stored on your hard disk and usually remain only for the duration of your session).
Any optional information requested is clearly indicated as such on the online registration form.

Under no circumstances will the information referred to above be divulged to a third party or organization without the express permission of the member concerned. Ratings of owners/vendors by renters/buyers (or vice versa), including the ratings of items for rent, are stored to maximize the efficiency of the website and to improve the interaction of its members.

When you provide us with personal information to complete a transaction, verify your credit card, place an order, arrange for a delivery or return a purchase, we imply that you consent to our collecting it and using it for that specific reason only.

If we ask for your personal information for a secondary reason, such as for marketing, we will either ask you directly for your expressed consent or provide you with an opportunity to say no. If after you opt-in, you change your mind, you may withdraw your consent for us to contact you, for the continued collection, use or disclosure of your information, at any time, by unsubscribing in the account menu on the website. You have the right to access, modify and/or delete data about yourself. To exercise this right, go to your member’s area on the website and modify any personal data.

We may combine your information with information we collect from other companies and use it to improve and personalize our services, content, and advertising. If any legal cases arise we shall provide any confidential information to law enforcement or other governmental officials, in response to a request relating to a criminal investigation or alleged illegal activity.

Your password and e-mail address are the keys to your account. Any act carried out using your password and your e-mail address is entirely your own responsibility. Therefore, for the protection of you, others, and MaltaMarkt you agree not to disclose this information to anyone. If you do share your password or your personal information with others, remember that you are responsible for all actions taken in the name of your account. If you lose control of your password, you may lose substantial control over your personal information and may be subject to legally binding actions taken on your behalf. Therefore, if your password has been compromised for any reason, you should immediately notify MaltaMarkt and change your password via your member login area.

If you receive an e-mail asking you to update information such as passwords, credit card number or alias, do not reply, and contact us via the contact tab. If your password has been given to a third party, you should immediately change it.

Any information or data/images present on the website cannot be copied or make wrong use of.

You understand that your content mainly listings and images (not including credit card information), may be transferred unencrypted and involve (a) transmissions over various networks; and (b) changes to conform and adapt to technical requirements of connecting networks or devices. Credit card information is always encrypted during transfer over networks.
