11. More information about privacy regulations
GETON LIMITED (Community operator) is incorporated according to British Virgin Islands (BVI) regulations. BVI has not enacted formal legislation to regulate data protection. However, BVI is expected to promulgate data protection legislation soon to adopt internationally recognized standards.
BVI accepts English common law as persuasive authority. BVI courts accordingly recognize the common law duties of privacy and confidentiality. Entities must maintain confidentiality in a person’s details unless an applicable exception applies. The duty of confidentiality has been statutorily codified in various aspects of BVI legislation, including the Banks and Trust Companies Act, 1990 (as amended), which regulates all banking, trust, and fiduciary-related activities in BVI. The common law duty of privacy and confidentiality is limited by specific exceptions under applicable anti-money laundering legislation, primarily regulated under the BVI Proceeds of Criminal Conduct Act, 1997, and the Anti-Money Laundering Regulations, 2008.
