Please contact us if you wish to obtain information concerning such safeguards (see Contact Us below).


To the extent that we process personal data as a result of your cookie preferences and we are a controller of that personal data, you may request access to, rectification, or erasure of your personal data, or restriction of processing or object to processing of your personal data, as well as the right to data portability. In each case, these rights are subject to restrictions as laid down by law. The following is a summary of your rights:

That period may be extended by two further months where necessary, taking into account the complexity and number of requests. We will inform you of any such extension within one month of receipt of your request. We may request proof of identification to verify your request. We have the right to refuse your request where there is a basis to do so in law, or if your request is manifestly unfounded or excessive, or to the extent necessary for important objectives of public interest.

In limited circumstances (such as our use of social media), we may act as a joint controller with another party. In such circumstances, upon your request to exercise any of the above rights we will advise you if there is another controller who you should contact. Please note that any other joint controller will also have its own privacy policy and cookie policy.

You have the right to lodge a complaint with the Irish Data Protection Commission (here), if you consider that the processing of your personal data infringes the GDPR.

We are committed to protecting the security of your personal data. We use a variety of security technologies and procedures to help protect your personal data from unauthorised access and use. As effective as modern security practices are, no physical or electronic security system is entirely secure.

We have implemented strict internal guidelines to ensure that your privacy is safeguarded at every level of our organisation. We will continue to revise policies and implement additional security features as new technologies become available. Where we have given you a password which enables you to access certain parts of our website, you are responsible for keeping that password confidential. We ask you not to share your password with anyone.

Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your personal data transmitted to our website. Any transmission of personal data is at your own risk. Once we receive your personal data, we use appropriate security measures to seek to prevent unauthorised access or disclosure.
