  • in respect of your IP address, to monitor the number of pages accessed on our Website, help diagnose problems with our server, and to administer our Website. We will not link your IP address to anything personally identifiable, so you will remain anonymous in the analysis of these logs.

Any information that is provided by you will be treated in accordance with the terms of the Data Protection Act 1998 and other applicable privacy legislation and in Ireland, in accordance with the terms of the Data Protection Acts 1988 and 2003 and any secondary legislation which relates to personal data.

Security of information

We will take appropriate measures to ensure that your personal information disclosed to us is kept secure, accurate and up to date and kept only for so long as is necessary for the purposes for which it is used.

Unfortunately the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure.  Although we do our best to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of your information transmitted to our site; any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.

We may send your personal information to other group companies, affiliates and third parties to help us process your personal information for the purposes set out in this policy.

We may also disclose your personal information to third parties:

  • as required by law, such as to comply with a legal process or regulatory obligation;
  • when we believe in good faith that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights, protect your safety or the safety of others, investigate fraud, or respond to a government request;
  • where we have your prior consent to do so;
  • in the event that we sell or buy any business or assets, in which case we may disclose your personal information to the prospective seller or buyer of such business or assets;
  • if Liberty Information Technology, or its parent company, or substantially all of its assets are acquired by a third party, in which case your personal information will be one of the transferred assets.

We will ensure that the third parties who receive your personal information are required to keep it confidential and treat it in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998 and all other applicable legislation (and in Ireland, in accordance with the Data Protection Acts 1988 and 2003 and all applicable legislation).

In any other circumstance we will only share information with third parties with your written consent.
