What is GDPR?

GDPR will update existing data protection law and will place a greater accountability on organizations when using your personal information and give you greater control over your personal information.

Our Legal Obligations

Sometimes, we may have to share customer information with third party law enforcement agencies. Where false or misleading information is given to us, or we suspect criminal activity we will record this and tell the appropriate law enforcement agencies, which may be within and outside Ireland. We may use credit reference agencies to check your credit history, your debts, how you operate your accounts and to verify your identity.
