We will only keep your data for as long as necessary to carry out our services to you and for as long as we are required by the Maldivian laws. After this, your personal data will be deleted. We cannot remove your data when there is a legal storage requirement, such as for taxation purposes or anything legally important held by the Maldivian Laws.
You have the right to request information about the personal data we keep about you. If you believe that any information we are holding about you is incorrect or incomplete, please email or call us as soon as possible. We will promptly correct any information found to be incorrect.
