Version 1.0

From time to time, Diligex Limited, a company registered under the Laws of Malta, bearing company registration number C 73892 (“we”, “us” or “Diligex”) organises webinars and other virtual events (collectively referred to as “the Events”).

During the organization, your participation, and the actual delivery of these Events, we will be using and processing personal data.  Since your privacy and the protection of personal data is fundamentally important to us, the following constitutes the privacy policy of Diligex, prepared in accordance with the provisions of Article 13 and 14 of the GDPR, and essentially clarifies our data handling practices.

This Privacy Policy is intended to solely govern and regulate the processing of personal data relating to the organisation and delivery of the Events.  They should be viewed as supplementary to, rather than as replacing the Privacy Policy which govern our general data processing practices.  In the case of discrepancy between this specified Privacy Policy and the general Privacy Policy, this specified Privacy Policy take precedence and prevail.

  1. Who are we; what does this policy cover; who is the data controller?

Diligex is a company involved and engaged in the field of AML compliance and provides a number of related services and solutions.

Unless otherwise stated, Diligex shall be deemed to be a data controller for the processing of personal data related to the Events.  Accordingly, the document applies to the processing of such personal data carried out by Diligex in its capacity as data controller.

This policy is intended to provide a high-level overview of the personal data that is collected by us whilst we organise and/or deliver the Events, and thus deals with:

  • how this personal data is collected;
  • why do we need to collect such personal data; and
  • how we comply with the provisions of laws relating to the protection of personal data as applicable to us, in particular Regulation (EU) 2016/679 (“GDPR”).

Throughout this document, we will be using certain specific terms.  Since our intention is that this document is easily understood, we would like to clarify what these terms are intended to refer to.  Naturally, if anything is unclear, please do not hesitate to get in touch with us.

In terms of the provisions of the GDPR, the term “personal data” is defined as ‘any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (‘data subject’)’. Furthermore, the term “processing” is also given a wide meaning and is defined as ‘any operation or set of operations which is performed on personal data or on sets of personal data, whether or not by automated means.’  This includes collection, recording, storage, adaptation, and use of personal data.

We use third party IT tools to facilitate the management and delivery of the Events, such as Microsoft Teams, Webex or Zoom (amongst others).  You may need to set up an account with the provider of such tools to be able to access and participate in the Events, which may require you to accept the third-party providers’ specific terms and conditions.

It is essential to acknowledge that the third-party provider, such as Microsoft (in relation to Microsoft Teams), will act as the data controller for any data processed by them to provide their service, in accordance with their terms of use. Diligex does not have any control over the terms and conditions set by these providers, and participants are encouraged to review and comply with their policies independently.

For any concerns or inquiries related to the processing of your data by third-party providers, we recommend consulting the respective provider’s privacy policies and terms of use.

The use of a third-party IT tool does not in any way imply that Diligex endorses them or their privacy policies. In the event that one or more third party IT tools are occasionally unavailable, we accept no responsibility for lack of service due to their downtime.

  1. Do we process personal data? If so, what data and how?

When you register for and/or participate in one of our Events, we will process the following personal data about you:

  1. Registration Information & contact informationData provided during the registration process, such as your name, email address, name of employer (company) and role within the company.

We may also collect your IP address. We use data about your device to ensure our solutions functions properly, diagnose server problems, and administer our software solutions  and the services we provide.

How do we collect your personal data from?

We typically obtain your personal data directly from you (such as when you submit an online form to register for one of our events), or directly through your participation in the Event (such as when you ask questions). However, there may be occasions where we obtain your personal data from your colleagues or other third parties, when these submit a registration and include your details for purposes related to event registration or coordination.


IMPORTANT – If you insert, upload, or otherwise provide us with personal data concerning third-party data subjects (such as one of your colleagues), it is your responsibility to ensure that we are duly authorised to process such personal data, and that each third-party data subject has reviewed and agreed to the contents of this policy.


  1. Why do we collect personal data and what is the legal basis for doing so?

We will primarily use and process your personal data to organise, facilitate the delivery of and provide you with access to the Event, in compliance with any terms specific to particular events.

Thus, we need to process personal data to administer and perform our services, including to carry out our obligations arising from our contractual relationship with you in relation to the particular Event for which you have registered.

Our legal basis to process such personal data is performance of a contract, in accordance with the provisions of Article 6(1)(b) GDPR and our legitimate interest, in accordance with the provisions of Article 6(1)(f) GDPR (to organise, manage and run our events).
