Women’s Inspire Network
Data protection provides rights to individuals with regard to the use of their Personal Data by organisations, including Women’s Inspire Network. Irish and EU laws on data protection govern all activities we engage in with regard to our collection, storage, handling, disclosure and other uses of Personal Data.
Compliance with the data protection rules is a legal obligation. In addition, our compliance with the data protection rules helps individuals to have confidence in dealing with us and helps us to maintain a positive reputation in relation to how we handle personal information.
The data protection rules that apply to us are contained in the EU General Data Protection Regulation (EU Regulation 679/2016) (the “GDPR”) and in related Irish data protection legislation which gives effect to the GDPR.
“Data controllers” are the people who or organisations which determine the purposes for which, and the manner in which, any Personal Data is processed, who/which make independent decisions in relation to the Personal Data and/or who/which otherwise control that Personal Data.
This Policy aims to ensure compliance with the relevant data protection laws. We aim to comply with the following:
• Lawfulness, fairness and transparency – Personal data must be processed lawfully, fairly and in a transparent manner.
• Purpose Limitation. Personal data must be collected for specified, explicit and legitimate purposes and not further processed in a manner that is incompatible with those purposes.
• Data minimisation – Personal Data must be adequate, relevant and limited to what is necessary in relation to purposes for which they are processed.
• Accuracy – Personal data must be accurate and, where necessary, kept up to date. Inaccurate Personal Data should be corrected or deleted.
• Retention – Personal data should be kept in an identifiable format for no longer than is necessary.
• Integrity and confidentiality – Personal data should be kept secure.
• Accountability – An important change for Data Controllers. Under the GDPR, we must not only comply with the above six general principles but we must be able to demonstrate that we comply by documenting and keeping records of all decisions.
We will not collect special category data from you.
We will not collect criminal conviction data from you.

Any such organisation or individual will have access to personal information needed to perform these functions but may not use it for any other purpose.
Specifically, we need to have written agreements in place with all of our data processors and, before we sign each agreement, we need to have vetted and be satisfied with the processor’s data security. The agreements also need to contain specific clauses that deal with data protection.
We use the following categories of data processors in the course of our business:
We use the following third party data processors in the course of our business:

This includes reporting information about incidents (as appropriate) to the law enforcement authorities and responding to any requirements from law enforcement authorities to provide information and/or Personal Data to them for the purposes of them detecting, investigating and/or prosecuting offences or in connection with crime sentencing.
Other than the above, we will not disclose personal information to any third party without your consent except in incidences where an individual is potentially at risk or where the law requires it.

We may also retain your information during the period of time needed to complete our legitimate business operations, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements.
To determine the appropriate retention period for Personal Data, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the Personal Data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of your Personal Data, the purposes for which we process your Personal Data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements.

We take appropriate security measures against unlawful or unauthorised processing of Personal Data, and against the accidental loss of, or damage to, Personal Data.
We have put in place procedures and technologies to maintain the security of all Personal Data from the point of collection to the point of destruction. Personal data will only be transferred to a data processor if they agree to comply with those procedures and policies, or if they put in place adequate measures himself. In addition, we have appropriate written agreements in place with all of our data processors.
We maintain data security by protecting the confidentiality, integrity and availability of the Personal Data, defined as follows:
We follow strict security procedures in the storage and disclosure of your Personal Data, and to protect it against accidental loss, destruction or damage. We use third party vendors and hosting partners to provide the necessary hardware, software networking, storage, and related technology required to run. The data you provide to us is protected using modern encryption, intrusion prevention, and account access techniques.
Automated Decision Making refers to a decision which is taken solely on the basis of automated processing of your personal data. This means processing using, for example, software code or an algorithm, which does not require human intervention.
As Profiling uses automated processing, it is sometimes connected with automated decision making. Not all profiling results in automated decision making, but it can do.
As a responsible company, we do not use automatic decision-making or profiling.
If you would like to make use of our services and you are not yet 18 years old, we require that an adult is present when you register. Where consent is required to process your Personal Data as a child, we will obtain that consent from the adult who is authorised to give the consent on your behalf.
