This is the privacy statement of Florence McCarthy having his place of business at 10 Ashe Street, Clonakilty, County Cork, Ireland for the purposes of complying with the Data Protection Acts 1988 and 2003 (“the Data Protection Acts”) and the European Communities (Electronic Communications Networks and Services) (Privacy and Electronic Communications) Regulations 2011. By visiting this website you are deemed to be on notice of, and to agree with, the manner in which I collect and process personal data which I receive via this website. If you do not agree with the manner in which I collect and process personal data you should leave this website now and you should not revisit it.

My Policy on Data Protection
I fully respect your right to privacy, and will not collect any personal information about you on this website without your clear permission. Any personal information which you volunteer to me will be treated with the highest standards of security and confidentiality in full compliance with the provisions of the Data Protection Acts.

I do not collect any personal data about you on this website, apart from information which you volunteer, whether by using my online forms, my e-mail subscription list or otherwise. Any information which you provide in this way will not be made available to any third parties unless I have received your express permission in this regard before doing so or unless I am obliged by law to pass on any such information. I may use data which you have submitted to me for statistical, market research, search engine optimisation (“SEO”) or promotional purposes. However, if I do use any of your data in any of these ways I will ensure that it will not be possible for any third party to identify the data as being attributable to you.

Security and Where I Store Your Personal Data
I am committed to protecting the security of your data. However as effective as modern security practices are, no physical or electronic security system is entirely secure. I cannot guarantee the complete security of my database, nor can I guarantee that information you supply will not be intercepted while being transmitted to me over the Internet.

I use Infusionsoft which is based in the US to manage my online forms and my e-mail subscription list etc.  I use Dropbox which is also based in the US to store certain data submitted to my site.  I use other similar services from time to time.

The transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure and may involve the transfer of Data to countries outside of the European Economic Area (EEA). Those countries may not provide an adequate level of protection in relation to processing your data.

By submitting your personal data to my site, you agree to this transfer, storing and processing.

Although I will do my best to protect your data, I cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our site. Any transmission of data is at your own risk.

Obtaining Copies of Your Data
Unless your right of access to the data which you have requested is restricted by section 5 of the Data Protection Acts, on request, I will supply copies of any personal data relating to you which I have received from you via this website. I am entitled to destroy any personal data which you submit to me at my discretion. In the event that I have destroyed any personal data which you have supplied to me I will not have any obligation to supply you with copies of this destroyed data.

If you wish to obtain copies of any personal data which I hold, you must write to me at 10 Ashe Street, Clonakilty, Co. Cork, Ireland, or e-mail me at flor [at] thesolicitorsguide [dot] com. You should include any personal identifiers which you supplied earlier via the website (such as your name, address, phone number, e-mail address etc.).

If you make a request in respect of your personal data I will comply with this request within forty days of receiving it in writing. Depending on the circumstances of the request, I reserve the right to charge you an administrative fee of €6.35 before I comply with the request.

Correcting Inaccurate Information
If you discover that I hold inaccurate information about you, you can request me to correct that information. Any such request must be in writing and should be transmitted to us either by post or by email at the addresses referred to above.

Deleting Your Data
In certain circumstances you may also request that data which you have supplied to me via the website be deleted. If you wish to request a deletion, you will be expected to identify some contravention of data protection law in the manner in which I have processed the data which you require to be deleted.

Right to Communicate
