Obtaining personal information

If you have received any promotional material and do not wish to receive it then upon letting us know we will not send it to you.

Your details may be passed on to other partners of the Order of Malta. This may happen in conjunction with services which these individuals or companies perform for the Order, for example, email mailouts.

Your access and control

However, in accordance with the privacy law we give you access to your personal information we hold and you can correct misinformation (except where it would be inappropriate or exempted by law e.g. – where it would require disclosing someone else’s personal information, but we will provide you with reasons).


It is important for us that persons with whom we do business have confidence that we handle information responsibly and it is our policy to do this.
