Personal data collection is any kind of information that may be attributed to you to some extent. In that respect, we typically collect and process the following types of information as part of our standard server logs: your IP number, user agent, and which pages you click (interests). No cookies are used on our websites with the exception of Omnia (www.omnia.ie). In this instance, only cookies for Google Analytics are actually used and not without your consent. Again you must opt in to its use. No other information, such as email addresses, names, or other personal data is captured or stored by any of our websites.
Google Services are used on Omnia for statistical and advertisement purposes. Google sets cookies that may record personal data to facilitate these services. You can opt out of these uses by selecting your preference on the Omnia website. A non-identifying cookie will be set for six months to record your preference after which time you will be prompted again.
Google's use of the DoubleClick cookie enables it and its partners to serve ads to users of this site based on their visit to this site and/or other sites on the Internet.
Users may opt out of the use of the DoubleClick cookie for interest-based advertising by visiting Ads Settings.
Data protection law
The Data Protection Act 2018 and General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) 2018 describe how organisations must collect, handle and store personal information. These rules apply regardless of whether data is stored electronically, on paper or on other materials. To comply with the law, personal information must be collected and used fairly, stored safely and not disclosed unlawfully.
While none of our servers hold personal data, it is possible that for a future project personal data may be involved. For the duration of any such projects while they are hosted on our servers, we will adhere to the eight rules of data protection outlined in the law. These say that personal data must:
- Be processed fairly and lawfully
- Be obtained only for specific, lawful purposes
- Be adequate, relevant and not excessive
- Be accurate and kept up to date
- Not be held for any longer than necessary
- Processed in accordance with the rights of data subjects
- Be protected in appropriate ways
- Not be transferred outside the European Economic Area (EEA), unless that country or territory also ensures an adequate level of protection
No personal data is stored on our servers, but every effort is made to guard our servers against malicious attacks and hacking attempts. Strong passwords are used throughout our systems and appropriate firewalls in place where needed.
