Privacy Notice Update
The law is changing!
NOTICE – CHANGE TO DATA PROTECTION LAW
The law in relation to data protection is changing with effect from 25 May 2018. This Privacy Notice has been updated for new and registered users to reflect your new and enhanced rights and to update how we process your personal data.
Commitment to Privacy
We are committed to protecting your personal data and right to privacy. We will always keep your personal data safe and comply with applicable data protection legislation from time to time in place.
By law, you have several rights when it comes to your personal data. Further information and advice about your rights can be obtained from the data protection commissioner (DPC) https://www.dataprotection.ie .
What does this mean?
- The right to be informed
You have the right to be provided with clear, transparent and easily understandable information about how we use your personal data and your rights. Therefore we’re providing you with the information in this Notice.
- The right of access
You have the right to obtain access to your personal data (if we’re processing it), and certain other information (similar to that provided in this Privacy Notice).
This is so you’re aware and can check that we’re using your personal data in accordance with data protection law.
- The right to rectification
You are entitled to have your personal data corrected if it’s inaccurate or incomplete.
- The right to erasure
This is also known as ‘the right to be forgotten’ and, in simple terms, enables you to request the deletion or removal of your personal data where there’s no compelling reason for us to keep using it. This is not a general right to erasure; there are exceptions.
- The right to restrict processing
You have rights to ‘block’ or suppress further use of your personal data. When processing is restricted, we can still store your personal data, but may not use it further. We keep lists of people who have asked for further use of their personal data to be ‘blocked’ to make sure the restriction is respected in future.
- The right to data portability
You have rights to obtain and reuse your personal data for your own purposes across different services. For example, if you decide to switch to a new provider, this enables you to move, copy or transfer your information easily between our IT systems and theirs safely and securely, without affecting its usability.
- The right to object to processing
You have the right to object to processing for direct marketing (which we do only with your consent) and also to processing which is carried out for the purposes of our legitimate interests.
- The right to lodge a complaint
You have the right to lodge a complaint about the way we handle or process your personal data with data protection regulator (DPC) https://www.dataprotection.ie . We would appreciate if you contact us with any issue you have in the first instance so we can rectify same.
- The right to withdraw consent
If you have given your consent to anything we do with your personal data, you have the right to withdraw your consent at any time (although if you do so, it does not mean that anything we have done with your personal data with your consent up to that point is unlawful). This includes your right to withdraw consent to us using your personal data for marketing purposes.
Please see the section titled Requests to us below, for more information on how we will handle your requests to us.
