You can equally request us to edit, adjust or delete any or all of this information. We are obliged to deliver upon your request within 30 days under GDPR legislation.
How do we protect your information?
Once you have given us personal details, we go to considerable lengths to ensure it is protected. While we do our utmost to guarantee the safety of your personal information, you also have to remember that details such as your email address are being sent over the Internet, and as such we cannot 100% guarantee the security of these; you send information to us over the Internet at your own risk.
Once we get hold of your information, however, we do everything we can to secure it on our systems through the use of secure servers and security certificates (SSL).
If an extraordinary situation arises where any relative data has been breached, hacked or stolen, it is our policy to notify you as soon as possible of such breaches, along with our contingency plan limit any potential damage arising from such a breach.
These cookies don’t collect any individual identification data, but rather just statistical insights about the sites you visit and what your online behaviour and patterns are. This actually assists us in improving user experience and personalise your online interactions. You are also able to turn off cookies using your browser settings if you wish.

Age of Consent
By using this site, you represent that you are at least the age of majority in your state or province of residence, or that you are the age of majority in your state or province of residence and you have given us your consent to allow any of your minor dependents to use this site.
Transferring your details outside of the EU
By offering your personal information to us, you are acknowledging that they could be transferred to locations outside of Ireland. This could happen if a server is located in a country outside of Ireland. We cannot guarantee that these locations have the same protection laws as we do when it comes to personal data particularly since non EU countries will not be bound by the same GDPR policies that apply in Europe. By giving us your information, you are agreeing to these terms. However, if we are aware of your data being transferred out of the country, we will make sure the right protection processes are in place to ensure your personal information remains as secure as possible, in line with what we have stated above. If you engage with our website while outside the country, then our data may be transferred internationally in order to provide you with the correct services.
We review and update this Privacy Statement on an ongoing basis.
