- When you or your organisation provide services to us, or otherwise offer to do so.
How will we use your personal data?
We will use your personal data for the following purposes (Permitted Purposes):

With regard to newsletters, legal updates and other general communications, you will always have the option to opt out of receiving such communications at any time.
Legal grounds for processing
Depending on which of the above Permitted Purposes we use your personal data for, we may process your personal data on one or more of the following legal grounds provided for under applicable data protection legislation:
- Because processing is necessary for the performance of a contract with you or your organisation;
- To comply with our legal obligations (e.g. to keep pension records or records for tax purposes); or
- Because MUSKITA or MUSKITA’s contractors have a legitimate interest to process your personal data.
- We may also process your data based on your consent where you have expressly given that to us.
How will we share your personal data?
We may share your personal data in the following circumstances:
- We may instruct service providers within or outside MUSKITA, domestically or abroad, e.g. IT services or server providers, to process personal data for the Permitted Purposes on our behalf and in accordance with our instructions only. In certain case, this may also mean that your personal data may be transferred to locations outside the EU or European Economic Area (“EEA”). MUSKITA will retain control over and will remain fully responsible for your personal data and will use appropriate safeguards as required by applicable law to ensure the integrity and security of your personal data when engaging such service providers;
- We may also use aggregated personal data and statistics for the purpose of monitoring website usage in order to help us develop our website and our services.
We will otherwise only disclose your personal data when you direct us or give us permission to do so or otherwise as required by law, such as for meeting legal and tax obligations.
How do we keep your personal data safe?
We take the appropriate technical and organisational measures to keep your personal data confidential and secure, in accordance with our internal policies and procedures regarding storage of, access to and disclosure of personal data. We may keep your personal data in our electronic systems, in the systems of our contractors, or in paper files.
Personal data we receive from you about other people
Where you provide us with the personal data of other people, such as your employees, directors of your companies, or other persons you may have dealings with, you must ensure that you are entitled to disclose that personal data to us and furthermore that, without being required to take further steps, we can collect, use and disclose that data in the manner described in this policy.
Transfers of personal data
In certain cases, we may transfer the data we collect from you to any of our suppliers or service providers (see above section on ‘How will we share your personal data?’), and your data may therefore in certain cases be processed at a destination outside the EEA by our suppliers or providers.
How long do we keep your personal data?
We delete your personal data once it is no longer reasonably necessary for us to keep it for the Permitted Purposes, or, where we have relied on your consent to keep your personal data, when you withdraw your consent for us to do so, and we are not otherwise legally permitted or required to keep the data.
