About this link
This Link has been created for three major purposes:
- To explain the eTars arrangements(1) which the Malta Insurance Association has made with Warden Firms to facilitate the collection of information about the circumstances of traffic accidents;
- To make it possible for persons who have been involved in a traffic accident to obtain information about that traffic accident; and
- To provide private individuals with the means of knowing what personal data is held about them in connection with these arrangements.
The information contained in a Wardens Report of traffic accidents constitutes basic data necessary for the settlement of claims. The European Parliament and Council (2) require that appropriate measures should be in place to make this basic data available for the settlement of claims.
Some of this information also constitutes personal data within the meaning of the Data Protection Act, and it is the duty of insurers to ensure that the processing of such data should comply with this legislation.
