Data protection compliance
We will collect, store and use ("process") your personal data in a manner that is compatible with the Data Protection Act (Amendment) Act 2003 (the "Act"). We will endeavour to keep your personal data accurate and up to date and will not keep it for longer than is necessary. We are the "data controller" for the purposes of the Act.
Under the Act, you have the right to ask us not to process your personal data for marketing purposes (or in certain circumstances we may tell you specifically that your personal data will not be used for marketing processes at all). We may request from time to time, when collecting your data, your consent to our or third parties’ using your data for such purposes. In such cases, you can inform us of your preferences in relation to such processing by checking certain boxes on the forms that we use to collect your data.
The Act also gives you the right to access information held about you, which can be exercised in accordance with the Act. Any access request may be subject to a fee of €15 to meet our costs in providing you with details of the information that we hold about you.
Collection and use of private information
You agree that we may use your private information for the following purposes:
- We may use your private information to operate the features of the Site, to allow you to participate in interactive features of the Site if you choose to do so, to track your entries, submissions and status in contests and other promotions that we may run, to carry out our contractual obligations to you and, where you have consented to be contacted for such purposes, to provide you with information, products or se rvices that you request from us or which we feel may interest you.
- The collected information may be provided in the aggregate to third parties, including potential business partners and advertisers, but this information is not linked to any PII before it is disclosed unless Platform Ireland has obtained your consent.
Disclosure of private information
Platform Ireland endeavours to ensure the commercially reasonable protection of each user's PII. We have implemented security measures to protect private information collected on our Site against loss, misuse or alteration. The Internet is, however, an open system, and technology and human operators are not infallible. Accordingly, we cannot and do not guarantee that the individual user information you have transmitted, including PII, will not be intercepted by others and/or decrypted or accidentally disclosed. Any such transmission is at your own risk. We cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information transmitted to us over the internet, and we accept no liability for any unintentional disclosure.
Children and children's privacy
Platform Ireland is concerned about the safety and privacy of all its users, particularly children. We target an audience that is 16 years of age or older, and some of our content may not be appropriate for all ages. For this reason, parents who wish to allow their children, under the age of 16, access to the Site or to send us an email or text message should assist them in setting up any relevant accounts and supervise them doing so. Where a child is providing us with PII, it is the responsibility of the parent or guardian to supervise them. If you are the parent or legal guardian of a child and believe that he or she has disclosed PII to us, please contact us at info[at]platformireland[dot]ie Upon request, the parent or legal guardian of a child may review and request the deletion of such child's PII, as well as refuse to permit the further collection or use of such PII.
