TMGT (referred to as “we”, “us”, “our” or the “entity” in this policy) in this policy is the “data controller” of all personal information that is collected and used about OCA customers for the purposes of the Data Protection Laws.

What personal data we collect

Personal data means any information relating to you which allows us to identify you, such as your name, contact details, payment details and certain health information. We may collect personal data from you through our physical forms, through our website gladiatortrailmalta.com (the “Website”), through our contracts, any other designated or specific form or from your employer in the case of a corporate membership.

Specifically, we may collect the following categories of information:

  1. Name, home address, e-mail address, telephone number, passport or other recognized personal ID card numbers and details, bank account details of the Company’s Data Subjects;
  2. Data concerning health and facial images which we will process exclusively for (a) the protection of our data subjects’ vital interests (in the case of medical emergency, security or when advising you on a fitness or nutrition programme) or (b) where specific consent has been provided or (c) in the case of employees to allow the Company to fulfil its obligations in terms or employment, social security and social protection laws;
  3. Information about your use of our Website; and

  3. We use your payment information for accounting, billing, payment of salaries and audit purposes and to detect and / or prevent any fraudulent activities;

We will only process your personal data where we have a legal basis to do so. The legal basis will depend on the reasons we have collected and need to use your personal data for. In most cases, we will need to process your personal data so we can fulfil our contractual obligations with you.

We may also process your personal data for one or more of the following purposes:

  •           To comply with a legal obligation;
  •           You have consented to us using your personal data;
  •           To protect your vital interests or those of another person (e.g. medical emergency);
  •           It is in our legitimate interests in operating as an outdoor fitness centre in Malta.

Only children aged 18 or over can provide their own consent. For children under this age, consent of the children’s’ parents or legal guardians is required.

We will not retain your data for longer than is necessary to fulfil the purpose it is being processed for. To determine the appropriate retention period, we consider the amount, nature and sensitivity of the personal data, the purposes for which we process it and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means. We must also consider periods for which we might need to retain personal data in order to meet our legal obligations or to deal with complaints, queries and to protect our legal rights in the event of a claim being made.

When we no longer need your personal data, we will securely delete or destroy it. We will also consider if and how we can minimise over time the personal data that we use, and if we can anonymise your personal data so that it can no longer be associated with you or identify you, in which case we may use that information without further notice to you.


We follow strict security procedures in the storage and disclosure of your personal data, and to protect it against accidental loss, destruction, breach or damage.

Data Protection Contact Person

TMGT does not fulfil the requirements for the appointment of a Data Protection Officer as contemplated by Article 37(1) of the GDPR. In order to comply with the spirit of the Data Protection Laws, the Company has designated Thomas Grima as the Company’s Data Protection Contact Person. Any notification to be sent under this Policy to the Company shall be sent to Thomas Grima on the following email address info@gladiatortrailmalta.com or by mail to his attention on:



Your data protection rights

Under certain circumstances, by law you have the right to:

  • Request information about whether we hold personal information about you, and, if so, what that information is and why we are holding/using it.       
  • Request access to your personal information (commonly known as a “data subject access request”). This enables you to receive a copy of the personal information we hold about you and to check that we are lawfully processing it.
  • Request correction of the personal information that we hold about you. This enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate information we hold about you corrected.
  • Request erasure of your personal information. This enables you to ask us to delete or remove personal information where there is no good reason for us continuing to process it. You also have the right to ask us to delete or remove your personal information where you have exercised your right to object to processing (see below).
  • Object to processing of your personal information where we are relying on a legitimate interest and there is something about your particular situation which makes you want to object to processing on this ground.
  • Request the restriction of processing of your personal information. This enables you to ask us to suspend the processing of personal information about you, for example if you want us to establish its accuracy or the reason for processing it.
  • Request transfer of your personal information in an electronic and structured form to you or to another party (commonly known as a right to “data portability”). This enables you to take your data from us in an electronically useable format and to be able to transfer your data to another party in an electronically useable format.
  • Withdraw consent. In the limited circumstances where you may have provided your consent to the collection, processing and transfer of your personal information for a specific purpose, you have the right to withdraw your consent for that specific processing at any time. Once we have received notification that you have withdrawn your consent, we will no longer process your information for the purpose or purposes you originally agreed to, unless we have another legitimate basis for doing so in law.

If you want to exercise any of these rights, then please submit a notification in writing to the Company’s Data Protection Contact Person as set out above. You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal information (or to exercise any of the other rights). However, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request for access is clearly unfounded or excessive. Alternatively, we may refuse to comply with the request in such circumstances.

We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access the information (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is another appropriate security measure to ensure that personal information is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it.

Changes to Data Protection Policy

This Policy may change from time to time and any changes thereto will be communicated to you by way of a notice on the Website.
