Retention of your information
We will retain your personal data only for as long as required to fulfil our legal, regulatory or reporting requirements. We do not retain personal information in an identifiable format for longer than is necessary.
We may hold your information for a longer or shorter period where:

Disclosure to and use by third parties
The security of your personal data is important to us and we will only ever transfer your information to a third party outside IMEASC where there is a legal requirement or legitimate business reason for us to do so. We do not authorise these third parties to use your personal data for any purposes other than those for which it was shared, nor are they permitted to send you any unsolicited communications.
Where we are under a duty to disclose or share your data with a third party in order to comply with any legal obligation(s), we will ensure that only data which is legally required is disclosed. We enter into contractual agreements with our third party providers to ensure that your personal information is protected in line with our policies, and is only used and/or processed for approved and legitimate business reasons.
We may disclose your personal information to third parties as follows:
• within the IMEASC Group, which means our subsidiaries or associated organisations;
• to any third party who is restructuring, selling or acquiring some or all of our organisation or assets or otherwise in the event of a merger, re-organisation or similar event;
• to law enforcement agencies in order to detect, investigate and prevent crime;
• to the Courts in Ireland or abroad as necessary to comply with a legal requirement, for the administration of justice, to protect vital interests, and to protect the security or integrity of our business operations;
• to comply with a request from a government department or regulatory authority in any of the jurisdictions in which we operate;
• to ensure the safety and data security of IMEASC agents, contractors and employees; or
• to third parties acting on our behalf, such as back-up and server hosting providers, IT software, analytical service providers, and maintenance providers and their agents.
Transfers of data to third countries
We store your information on servers located within the United Kingdom (UK). We ensure that when your personal data is transferred outside the UK or EEA that it is afforded an equivalent level of data protection. The third parties listed under Disclosure to and use by third parties may be located outside of the UK or EEA or they may transfer your information outside the UK or EEA. Those countries located outside the UK and EEA may not have the same standards of data protection and privacy laws as in the UK.
Security of your personal data
Unfortunately, as the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure, and although we will endeavour to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our Website.
Under data protection law you have a number of rights in relation to your personal information. To exercise any of your rights in respect of the personal information we hold about you, please submit all requests to info@IMEASC.ie. Please note that to help us to search for your information, we will ask you to confirm your identity.
You have the following rights (which may not always apply or be subject to certain circumstances):
• to request access to your information and information about how we process it. You have the right to ask for a copy of the personal information we hold about you, and we will respond to you within 30 days of receipt of your request. For all subsequent requests we may charge you an administrative fee. Please note that where your personal information concerns other identifiable individuals or where we have a lawful reason to do so, we may withhold that information;
• to have your information corrected if it is inaccurate and to have incomplete information completed. If you change your name or address/email address or ascertain that any of the information we hold pertaining to you is out of date or inaccurate, please contact us as soon as possible so that we may promptly rectify any inaccuracies;
• to object to the processing of your personal data and withdraw your consent. As set out in the section How we use your information, we may rely on your consent as the legal basis for processing your personal data. You may withdraw your consent at any time by contacting us;

Please note that where your personal information concerns other identifiable individuals or where we have a lawful reason to do so, we may withhold that information;
• rights relating to automated decision making, including profiling.
You have the right to lodge a complaint with the Information Commissioner’s Office if you have any concerns about the way in which we have handled your personal data, or if you believe that it has been used in a way that does not comply with data protection laws.
