Existing and Potential Clients
Information I hold about you and your business
I do not collect any health-related information, nor do I intentionally collect information from children under the age of 13.
Before you become a client you may furnish me data such as login credentials so that I can research and quote for your project. If you decide not to use my services all your data will be deleted.
When you become a client I will request data from you such as billing information and system credentials (i.e. usernames, passwords, system URLs). It is likely I will also create new system credentials.
In certain cases I will need temporary access to financial systems you use such as PayPal or Stripe. While I will purge this information once the task is complete. I will also recommend you change your passwords.
How I use this information
Where it is stored
The nature of the Internet is such that I cannot guarantee or warrant the security of any information you transmit to or by me via the Internet. No data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. However, I have taken all reasonable steps to protect your personal data.
I store your system credentials in encrypted format using a premium password manager database called LastPass. Access to this is via a two-factor login and only on accredited devices. LastPass also permits me allow a third party shielded-access to a system such as a website dashboard. Shield means they can use but cannot view the actual credentials. LastPass parent LogMeIn is approved under the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield for data storage outside the EEA.
I also store data in files on Dropbox. This is a security measure in case of local hardware failure. Data on Dropbox is encrypted and access is via a two-factor login. Dropbox is approved under the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield for data storage outside the EEA.
I use Zoho Invoice for billing purposes. Data on Zoho is encrypted and access is via a two-factor login. Zoho is approved under the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield for data storage outside the EEA.
I will use credentials provided and created to carry out the required work for you. I will use your billing information to send you my invoices.
I will only pass on your information when I am obliged to by Irish or European law. Examples of recipients in this case are An Garda and the Revenue Commissioners.
I will not share your information with any other organisations for marketing, market research or commercial purposes.
I will only share your data with a third party such as a specialist subcontractor or technical support agent with your explicit consent. Where possible I will use a tool like LastPass above to shield your credentials from them.
Under the GDPR you have the following rights as an individual:
- obtain details about how your data is processed by me;
- obtain copies of personal data that I hold on you;
- have incorrect or incomplete data corrected;
- have your data erased by me, where, for example, I have no legitimate reason for retaining the data;
- obtain your data from me and to have that data transmitted to another organisation (Data Portability);
- object to the processing of your data by an organisation in certain circumstances;
- not to be subject to (with some exceptions) automated decision making, including profiling.
