Resilience Cayman. (“we” or “us”) is a “data controller” for the purposes of the The Data Protection Law, 2017 (“DPL”) of the Cayman Islands
A data controller is a person who determines how “personal data” with respect to a living individual (data subject”) is to be “processed” (collected or obtained, recorded, held or be subject to other operations).
Personal data of a data subject consists of “sensitive personal data” and non-sensitive personal data. Sensitive personal data consists of personal data such as the racial or ethnic origin of the data subject, the political opinions of the data subject, etc. (a full list is at section 3 of the DPL).
A data controller has to comply with the “data protection principles” stated in the DPL which are as follows
- Personal data shall be processed fairly. In addition, generally, personal data may be processed only if the data subject has consented to the processing or where one of the conditions necessary for processing personal data is present, such as:
- (a) the entry into or the performance of a contract to which the data subject is or will be a party;
- (b) to comply with a legal obligation of the data subject;
- (c) to protect the vital interests of the data subject;
- (d) the administration of justice; or
- (e) the exercise of a public function in the public interest.
- Personal data shall be obtained only for one or more specified lawful purposes and shall not be further processed in any manner incompatible with that purpose or those purposes.
- Personal data shall be adequate, relevant and not excessive in relation to the purpose or purposes for which they are collected or processed.
- Personal data shall be accurate and, where necessary, kept up to date.
- Personal data processed for any purpose shall not be kept for longer than is necessary for that purpose.
- Personal data shall be processed in accordance with the rights of data subjects under the DPL.
- Appropriate technical and organizational measures shall be taken against unauthorized or unlawful processing of personal data and against accidental loss or destruction of, or damage to, personal data; and
- Personal data shall not be transferred to a country or territory unless that country or territory ensures an adequate level of protection for the rights and freedoms of data subjects in relation to the processing of personal data.”
We are committed to being a responsible data controller, in accordance with the data protection principles, of the personal data which you provide to us and the personal data which we may process in the course of operating our business and providing services.
You, as the data subject, have certain rights with respect to the personal data held and processed by or for us a data controller; these rights are described in PART VII below.
THE PURPOSE OF THIS POLICY
This Policy sets out how we may process personal data about you and “individuals connected to you” (see paragraph 8 below for the list of such individuals). Whenever we say “you”, “individuals connected to you” should be read as included as well.

Please ensure that any individuals connected to you are made aware of this Policy, and the individual rights and information it sets out, prior to their providing their personal data to us or our obtaining such data from another source.

INTERNATIONAL TRANSFER OF PERSONAL DATA
If we transfer your personal data to a third party service provider engaged by us who is located outside the Cayman Islands, we will ensure that the transferred personal data is appropriately secure and protected. Where necessary, we will ensure that separate and appropriate legal agreements are put in place with the recipient of that data.
Where we have a licence to use a third party name or brand, we may be required to share your personal data with that third party who may be located outside the Cayman Islands.
Some of the reasons for transferring your personal data outside the Cayman Islands may include:
- the need to carry out our contract with you;
- to fulfil a legal obligation;
- to protect the public interest; or
- to protect legitimate interests, be they yours or ours.
