Whilst the Malta Communications Authority (MCA) has tried to be as exhaustive as possible in the information provided by means of these Guides, not all legal provisions relevant to electronic commerce may be fully reflected in the Guides.

Throughout these Guides, the word ‘trader’ refers to any person or entity carrying out an economic activity in Malta for the purposes relating to his trade, business, craft or profession.  For consistency, although reference to this term is being made in the masculine, it must be taken to apply for both sexes.
