Whenever EU law is concerned, we refer to REGULATION (EU) 2016/679 OF THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AND OF THE COUNCIL of April 27, 2016. You can of course access the General Data Protection Regulation of the EU online at EUR-Lex, the gateway to EU law, at https://eur-lex.europa.eu/legal-content/EN/TXT/?uri=celex%3A32016R0679.
We only process your data if at least one of the following conditions applies:
- Consent (Article 6 Paragraph 1 lit. a GDPR): You have given us your consent to process data for a specific purpose. An example would be the storage of data you entered into a contact form.
- Contract (Article 6 Paragraph 1 lit. b GDPR): We process your data in order to fulfill a contract or pre-contractual obligations with you. For example, if you request free samples or free quotations, or if we conclude a sales contract with you, we need personal information in advance
- Legal obligation (Article 6 Paragraph 1 lit. c GDPR): If we are subject to a legal obligation, we will process your data. For example, we are legally required to keep invoices for our bookkeeping. These usually contain personal data.
- Legitimate interests (Article 6 Paragraph 1 lit. f GDPR): In the case of legitimate interests that do not restrict your basic rights, we reserve the right to process personal data. For example, we have to process certain data in order to be able to operate our website securely and economically. Therefore, the processing is a legitimate interest.
- Other conditions such as making recordings in the interest of the public, the exercise of official authority as well as the protection of vital interests do not usually occur with us. Should such a legal basis be relevant, it will be disclosed in the appropriate place.
It is a general criterion for us to store personal data only for as long as is absolutely necessary for the provision of our services and products. This means that we delete personal data as soon as any reason for the data processing no longer exists. In some cases, we are legally obliged to keep certain data stored even after the original purpose no longer exists, such as for accounting purposes. If you want your data to be deleted or if you want to revoke your consent to data processing, the data will be deleted as soon as possible, provided there is no obligation to continue its storage. If you want your data to be deleted or removed from our database email us at email@example.com.
Rights in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation
According to Article 15 of the GDPR, you have a right to information as to whether we are processing your data. If this is the case, you have the right to receive a copy of the data in question, as well as the following information:
- the purpose of the processing;
- the categories of personal data concerned;
- the recipients to whom the personal data is disclosed, and in particular how security can be guaranteed if the data is transferred to third countries
- how long the data will be stored;
- the existence of the right to request rectification, erasure or restriction of processing of personal data and the right to object to such processing;
- the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority (you can find links to these authorities below);
- the source of the data, if we have not collected it from you directly;
- whether profiling is carried out, i.e. whether data is automatically evaluated in order to be allocated to a personal profile on you.
According to Article 16 of the GDPR, you have the right to request rectification of the data, which means that we have to correct your data should you find any errors.
According to Article 17 of the GDPR, you have the right to have your personal data erased (the “right to be forgotten”), which specifically means that you can request to have your data deleted.
According to Article 18 of the GDPR, you have the right to obtain restriction of processing, which means that we are only allowed to store the data but no longer use or process it.
According to Article 20 of the GDPR, you have the right to request data portability, which means that on request, we will provide you with your data in a common format. According to Article 21 of the GDPR, you have a right to object, which will result in a change in processing after implementation.
If the processing of your data is based on Article 6 (1) (e) (public interest, exercise of official authority) or Article 6 (1) (f) (legitimate interest), you can object to the processing. We will then check as soon as possible, whether we can legally comply with this objection.
If data is used to operate direct mail, you can object to this type of data processing at any time. We will then no longer be allowed to use your data for direct marketing purposes.
If your data is used for profiling, you can object to this type of data processing at any time. We will then no longer be allowed to use your data for profiling purposes.
According to Article 22 of the GDPR, you may have the right not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing (including profiling).
If you believe that the processing of your data violates the data protection law, or your data protection claims have been violated in any other way, you can complain to the supervisory authority.
Every time you visit a website nowadays, certain information is automatically created and stored, just as it happens on this website. This data should be collected as sparingly as possible, and only with good reason. By website, we mean the entirety of all websites on your domain, i.e. everything from the homepage to the very last subpage (like this one here). By domain we mean example.ie or examplepage.com.
Even while you are currently visiting our website, our web server – this is the computer this website is stored on, usually automatically retains data such as the below – for reasons such as operational security or for creating access statistics etc.
- the full address (URL) of the accessed website (e. g. https://www.examplepage.ie/examplesubpage.html/)
- browser and browser version (e.g. Chrome 87)
- the operating system used (e.g. Windows 10)
- the address (URL) of the previously visited site (referrer URL) (i.e. https://www.examplepage.ie/icamefromhere.html/)
- the host name and the IP-address of the device the website is accessed from (e.g. COMPUTERNAME and 220.127.116.11)
- date and time
- in so-called web server log files.
Generally, these files are stored for two weeks and are then automatically deleted. We do not pass these data to others, but we cannot exclude the possibility that this data may be looked at by the authorities in case of illegal conduct.
We are committed to ensuring that your information is secure. In order to prevent unauthorised access or disclosure, we have put in place suitable physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online.
