Digital Services Act

What is the EU Digital Services Act (DSA)?

The Digital Services Act (‘DSA’) is part of the European digital regulation strategy which aims to prevent illegal and harmful activities online and the spread of disinformation. It ensures user safety, protects fundamental rights, and creates a fair and open online platform environment.

BMIT DSA Point of Contact

Under the DSA, BMIT ltd is required to designate a single point of contact for EU individuals and regulators (including the European Commission, an EU Member States’ authority or the European Board for Digital Services) to contact BMIT in respect of DSA matters.

These parties may contact BMIT regarding the DSA on email support@bmit.com.mt.

Communications with the above-noted email address should be made in English.

Report illegal content

If you want to report an abuse or illegal content, we strongly recommend communicating your complaint directly to the content publisher. Please note, that BMIT does not review, manage, or otherwise control content creation by our customers when BMIT provides Hosting and Connectivity services. Requesting BMIT to take down content may not permanently resolve content being delivered from the content publisher’s origin.

To submit or report an abuse under DSA please fill out this FORM or reach out to support@bmit.com.mt

In cases of serious illegal content, especially those that may require public law enforcement, such as complaints relating to child abuse or incitement, you should report your compliant to the relevant authorities.

For users in Malta, here are some key contacts:

Child Abuse: If the content involves child abuse, use the Maltese Child Web Alert portal or contact the Malta Police Force to report the abuse.

Cybercrime: For other forms of illegal online activity, such as cybercrime, contact the Malta Police Force to report abuse.

Consumer Protection and Product Safety: For issues related to consumer protection and product safety, contact the Office for Consumer Affairs or the Technical Regulations Division within the Malta Competition and Consumer Affairs Authority (MCCAA).

    Please note, BMIT does not review, manage, or otherwise control content creation by our customers. We provide cloud infrastructure and connectivity services which are operated by our customers.

For permanent resolution, we strongly recommend that you also communicate your complaint directly to the content publisher.
