What are your rights as a Data Subject?
As a data subject you have a number of rights which are summarised below. Some of these only apply in specific circumstances and are qualified in several respects by exemptions in data protection legislation. We will advise you in our response if we are relying on any such exemptions.
- Right to be informed: You have a right to be informed about our collection and use of personal data.
- Access to personal data: You have a right to request a copy of the personal information that we hold about you. Should you wish to make such a Subject Access request, please email to email@example.com
You should include sufficient information to clearly identify yourself as well as any other relevant information that will reasonably assist us in fulfilling your request. Your request will be dealt with as soon as possible (within 30 days under GDPR).
- Right to Correction of personal data: You can request us to rectify any personal data that we are processing about you which is inaccurate.
- Right to withdraw consent: Under the new regulation consent should be freely given, specific, informed and provided via an unambiguous indication. Where we have relied upon your consent to process your personal data, you have the right to withdraw that consent at any time.
- Right of erasure: You can request us to erase your personal data where there is no compelling reason to continue processing. This right only applies in certain circumstances, it is not a guaranteed or absolute right.

Consent for children
VMGroup does not knowingly collect personal information from children under the age of 16. We do not provide services for purchase by children, nor do we market to children. If you are under the age of 16, please do not submit any personal information through our website. We encourage parents and legal guardians to monitor their children’s Internet usage and to help enforce this privacy statement by instructing their children never to provide personal information via our website without their guardian’s consent.
How do we protect your data?
We recognise that online data protection and security is of vital importance for all our clients. Therefore, it is essential we provide you with confidence in the security of your personal data before you process your personal data on our website, for example when you register your personal details for our newsletter.
We use a variety of security measures to securely process your personal information when you interact with our website. Our advanced security techniques are governed by a mature IT infrastructure and framework. Our approach is focused on achieving the best mitigation of all known security risks and the implementation of ISO 27001 certification standards and compliance. In order to help us in this regard, we employ a secure server so that all supplied information is transmitted via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology and encryption whenever possible to reduce the impact of any potential incidents. As the security of communications via the internet is not completely secure, we cannot guarantee the security of any information that you disclose using your internet connection. You accept the inherent security implications of using the internet. We will not accept liability for any direct, consequential, incidental, indirect, or punitive losses or damages arising from your use of online communications.
Do we disclose any personal data to third-parties?
We may sometimes share your data with a third party to supply services on our behalf. In some cases, the third parties may require access to some or all of your data. Where any of your data is required for such a purpose, we will take all reasonable steps to ensure that your data will be handled safely, securely, and in accordance with your rights. Where we transfer any personal data outside the EEA, we will take all reasonable steps to ensure that your data is treated as safely and securely as it would be within the EEA and under the GDPR, including implementing appropriate contractual arrangements.
If you have any cause for complaint about our use of your personal data, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will endeavour to resolve the issue. If we are unable to resolve the issue, you have the right to lodge a complaint with the Irish supervisory authority, the Data Protection Commission.
