The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) (EU) 2016/679 is a regulation in EU law on data protection and privacy for all individuals within the European Union.
General Data Protection Regulation
- What is GDPR about?
The General Data Protection Regulation is an update to existing Data Privacy laws, and aims to harmonise and strengthen the Data Privacy rights of EU citizens in how their data is controlled and processed.
GDPR is due to come into force May 25th 2018. It sets out regulations for the security and privacy controls required when handling Personally Identifiable Data (PII).
Claddagh Records Ltd. is committed to Data Protection and is an accredited ISO27001:2013 company. This means that we have a management system in place to handle the security of the data we process. Claddagh Records Ltd. is registered with the Irish Data Protection Authority.
Claddagh Records Ltd. only collects and retains data about individuals or organisations with our customers consent, and for the services we offer, and for order processing via our online website, or where provided directly by the end user for the purpose of contracting for the services we offer.
- Why does Claddagh Records Ltd. need your personal information?
GDPR requires data processing to be lawful, fair and transparent.
Claddagh Records Ltd. collects personal information solely for the purpose of providing the services we offer and for billing and accounting purposes. At each point of collection, we will endeavour to provide full transparency as to the purpose, retention, transfer and use of such data, for example, in order to process and post your order we need your name and address, as well as phone number in case we need to contact you regarding your order. This is basic information which is required to place an order online and have the product shipped to you.
- Does Claddagh Records Ltd. do anything else with your data?
GDPR requires data processing to limit the purposes of processing.
We do not share your personal information with third parties.
How long do we keep your data?
GDPR requires us to minimise the data we keep unless it’s required for the provision of a service or for existing legal requirements (such as Revenue purposes), so we keep your data only for as long as it’s needed for the original purpose we collected it. If it’s not needed we get rid of it!
Is your data accurate and up to date?
Where feasible, Claddagh Records Ltd. will make every possible effort to ensure the data we hold relating to a data subject is kept up to date and accurate. We may do this by periodically contacting the data subject via email, with requests that the data is verified by the data subject. Claddagh Records Ltd. reserves the right to suspend any services which were purchased under fraudulent pretence and forward any relevant data to An Gárda Síochana.
