Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the Internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect you and your child’s personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of such data transmitted via the Website; any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received yours and your child’s data, we will use procedures and security features on the Website to try to prevent unauthorised access. You acknowledge that we are not responsible for any intercepted information sent via the Internet, and to the extent permitted by law you hereby release us from any and all claims arising out of or related to the use of intercepted information in any unauthorised manner.

Our stance is to keep data for a 3-Year period in accordance with GDPR. All of our data is held securely on Microsoft 365 which is stored on a Microsoft Azure server.
YOUR RIGHTS AND UPDATING PERSONAL DATA
You are responsible for notifying us of any changes to your personal data (e.g. contact details) or that of your child’s, held or needed by us, as this is out of our control. You and your child have rights under the Data Protection Acts 1988 and 2003 (as amended) and its replacement legislation being the General Data Protection Regulation (which comes into force on the 25 May 2018) and any implementing Irish legislation.
You may request in writing copies of your personal data and that of your child’s held by us as data controller. We will provide you with a copy of such personal data held by us as soon as practicable and in any event not more than one month after the request in writing is received by us. Generally we will not charge you to access such personal data, except where a request is, in our view, manifestly unfounded or excessive. We may also request proof of identification or status as parent or guardian to verify your access request. All access requests should be addressed to Michelle Kiely, Operations & Finance Manager at [email protected]
We endeavour to keep the personal data you and your child provide to us as accurate, complete and up to date. If you know that personal data that we hold about you and/or your child is inaccurate, incomplete or out of date you should let us know and we will make the necessary amendments, erase or block the relevant personal data. You also have the right to request that we erase past personal data (i.e. “the right to be forgotten”) under certain conditions. All requests should be addressed to Michelle Kiely, Operations & Finance Manager at [email protected]
At any time, you may object to the processing of your personal data and/or that of your child’s, and may request that we block specific uses of such personal data by contacting Michelle Kiely, Operations & Finance Manager at [email protected]. We must comply with these directions, except in limited circumstances permitted by applicable laws.
You and your child also have the right to data portability in order to transfer your/their personal data to another data controller in a structured, commonly used, and machine readable format, subject to certain conditions and we may issue guidance or information about these transfers from time to time which are available from us upon request. Please contact Michelle Kiely, Operations & Finance Manager at [email protected] to exercise this right or request further information.
