Legal Obligation

We may also share your data with third parties as part of a Company sale or restructure, or for other reasons to comply with a legal obligation upon us. We have a data processing agreement in place with such third parties to ensure data is not compromised. Third parties must implement appropriate technical and organisational measures to ensure the security of your data.

How do we use your data?

We combine the data we have about you to make sure the information we send you is as relevant as possible. The data privacy law allows this as part of our legitimate interest in understanding our participants and partners to provide the highest levels of service.

We also use your data to organise any activity you get involved with, for example arranging where and when to meet.

What if you don’t give us necessary data

If you want to change how we use your data, you’ll find details in the ‘What are your rights?’ section below. If you ask us not to contact you, we might not be able to provide some services you’ve asked for. For example, if you have asked us to tell you about the next seminar or festival, we won’t be able to do that if you have withdrawn consent for us to contact you.

How do we protect your data?

We will ensure that all personal data you give us is held securely, in a way that complies with the requirements of the relevant Irish legislation, namely the Irish Data Protection Act (1988), and the Irish Data Protection (Amendment) Act (2003). Access to your personal data is password-protected, and sensitive data like payment card information is secured and tokenised to ensure it is protected.

How long will we keep your data?

We will only keep your personal data for as long as is necessary for the purpose for which it was collected. For example, we will keep data collected when you attend or participate in a project, event or activity for three years after the end of the project or last contact with you so we can comply with our legal obligations if any questions arise.

At the end of that retention period, your data will either be deleted completely or anonymised, for example by aggregation with other data so that it can be used in a non-identifiable way for statistical analysis and planning.

Who do we share your data with?

We often work with other cultural organisations to deliver activities and events. If you get involved in a project, we will share with the relevant partner organisations the bits of your personal data necessary to run that specific project, for example to allow you special access to a cultural building or save you a seat at an event. They may then ask you if you want to get information about their own activities.

We may also be required to disclose your personal data to the police or other enforcement, regulatory or Government body, if they make a valid request.

What are your rights?

You have these rights in relation to the personal data we hold on you:

  • The right to be informed about the data we hold on you and what we do with it;
  • The right of access to the data we hold on you;
  • The right for any inaccuracies in the data we hold on you to be corrected;
  • The right to have data deleted in certain circumstances;
  • The right to restrict the processing of the data;
  • The right to transfer the data we hold on you to another party;
  • The right to object to the inclusion of any information;
  • The right to regulate any automated decision-making and profiling of personal data.

Where you have provided consent to our use of your data, you also have the right to withdraw that consent at any time. This means that we will stop processing your data.

In cases where we are processing your personal data on the basis of our legitimate interest, you can ask us to stop for reasons connected to your individual situation. We must then do so unless we believe we have a legitimate overriding reason to continue processing your personal data.

You have the right to stop the use of your personal data for direct marketing activity through all channels, or selected channels. We must always comply with your request. You can do this by:

  • Responding with STOP in the subject line to any email we send you
  • Texting STOP in response to an SMS communication
  • Contacting us through the contact form on the website with the subject line STOP

Please note that you may continue to receive communications for a short period after changing your preferences while our systems are fully updated.

Getting a copy of the personal data we hold about you

To get a copy of the personal data we hold about you, write to our officer responsible for data protection through the contact form on our website with the subject line: Personal Data – Subject Access Request

This is known as a Subject Access Request and will be processed within 30 days.

To protect the confidentiality of your information, we will ask you to verify your identity before proceeding with any request you make under this Privacy Notice. If you have authorised a third party to submit a request on your behalf, we will ask them to prove they have your permission to act.

Changes to our privacy policy

Any changes we may make to our privacy policy in the future will be posted on this page and, where appropriate, notified to you by email.
