When a credit or debit card account information is being transmitted to the Website or through the Website, it will be protected by cryptographic protocols. To be clear, the Website does not itself store your credit or debit card account information, and we do not have direct control over or responsibility for your credit or debit card account information. We use third party payment processors that are the controllers of your credit card information. Our contracts with third parties that receive your credit or debit card account information require them to keep it secure and confidential.

Nonetheless, we cannot guarantee that transmissions of your credit or debit card account information or your other information will always be secure or that unauthorised third parties will never be able to defeat the security measures taken by St Chris Bahrain or our third-party service providers. Except to the extent that liability cannot be excluded or limited due to applicable law, we assume no liability or responsibility for disclosure of your information due to errors in transmission, unauthorised third-party access, or other causes beyond our control. You play an important role in keeping your information secure. You should not share your username, password, or other security information for your St Chris Bahrain accounts with anyone. If we receive instructions using your username and password, we will consider that you have authorised the instructions.

How we secure your data

Information systems and data security is imperative to us to ensure that we are keeping our clients and subscribers happy.

We operate a robust and thorough process for assessing, managing and protecting new and existing systems which ensures that they are up to date and secure against the ever changing threat landscape.

When you trust us with your data we will always do our best to keep your information secure. By utilising strong encryption when your information is stored or in transit we minimise the risk of unauthorised access or disclosure; when entering information on the Website, you can check this by right clicking on the padlock icon in the address bar.

Storage of information

St Chris Bahrain hosting operations are based in the UK and we store most of our data within the European Union (EU). Some organisations which provide services to us may transfer data outside the Kingdom of Bahrain and/or outside the European Economic Area but we'll only allow this if your data is adequately protected. Some of our platforms and social media channels are provided by US companies and it may be that using their products results in data transfer to the USA. However we only allow this when we are certain that it will be adequately protected.

We and our third-party service providers, and/or partners may also place web beacons for measuring sales and marketing campaigns.

We classify our cookies as:

  • Strictly Necessary: These cookies are essential, as they ensure your security and privacy when you use our secure sites, as well as enabling you to move around a website and use its features securely. This category cannot be disabled.

St Chris Bahrain does not send marketing or promotional emails. We also do not collect any Personal Data for direct marketing purposes. However, we may ask you to leave a review or take a survey to allow us to provide you with a better service. We may also collect your Personal Data to respond to your queries and comments, social media posts and questions/ queries. 



Under certain circumstances, by law, you have the right to:

  • Request access: To your Personal Data (commonly known as a "data subject access request"). This enables you to receive a copy of the Personal Data we hold about you and to check that we are lawfully Processing it.
  • Request rectification: Of the Personal Data that we hold about you. This enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate information we hold about you corrected. We may need to verify the accuracy of any new data you provide to us.
  • Request erasure: Of your Personal Data. This enables you to ask us to delete or remove Personal Data where there is no good reason for us continuing to process it. You also have the right to ask us to delete or remove your Personal Data where you have exercised your right to object to Processing, where we may have processed your information unlawfully or where we are required to erase your Personal Data to comply with local law. Note, however, that we may not always be able to comply with your request of erasure for specific legal reasons which will be notified to you, if applicable, at the time of your request. 
  • Object to Processing: Of your Personal Data where we are relying on a legitimate interest (or those of a third party) and there is something about your particular situation which makes you want to object to Processing on this ground. You also have the right to object where we are Processing your Personal Data for direct marketing purposes. In some cases, we may demonstrate that we have compelling legitimate grounds to process your information which means we can continue to process your Personal Data.
  • Request the restriction of Processing: Of your Personal Data. This enables you to ask us to suspend the Processing of your Personal Data in the following scenarios:
    • if you want us to establish the data's accuracy;
    • where our use of the data is unlawful but you do not want us to erase it;
    • where you need us to hold the data even if we no longer require it as you need it to establish, exercise or defend legal claims; or
    • You have objected to our use of your data but we need to verify whether we have overriding legitimate grounds to use it. 
    • Request for portability: Of your Personal Data to another party. We will provide to you, or a third party you have chosen, your Personal Data in a structured, commonly used, machine readable format. Note that this right only applies to automated information which you initially provided consent for us to use or where we used the information to perform a contract with you. 
    • Right to withdraw consent at any time: Where we are relying on consent to process your Personal Data. However, this will not affect the lawfulness of any Processing carried out before you withdraw your consent. If you withdraw your consent, we may not be able to provide certain products or services to you. We will advise you if this is the case at the time you withdraw your consent.
    • Right to lodge a complaint with the Authority: In case you consider that the Processing of your Personal Data infringes any of your rights or provisions related to the laws and regulations in scope.

You will not have to pay a fee to access your Personal Data (or to exercise any of the other rights). However, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request for access is unfounded or excessive. Alternatively, we may refuse to comply with the request in such circumstances.

We try to respond to all legitimate requests within 10 working days. Occasionally, it may take us longer if your request is particularly complex or you have made a number of requests. In this case, we will notify you and keep you updated.
