Web Privacy Statement
This is a statement of the practices of the Royal Irish Academy (hereafter, the Academy) in connection with the capture of personal data on this website (that is all web pages within the domain www.ria.ie) and the steps taken by the Academy to respect your privacy.
The Academy is not responsible for the content or privacy practices of other websites which may be accessed through the Academy website. It is Academy policy to identify clearly links to external websites and it is your responsibility to satisfy yourself as to the adequacy of the practices of linked sites.
This statement should not be construed as a contractual undertaking. The Academy reserves the right to review and amend this statement at any time without notice and you should, therefore, re-visit this webpage from time to time.
The Academy fully respects your right to privacy and actively seeks to preserve the privacy rights of those who share information with us. The Academy will not collect any personal information about you on this website without your permission, except as may be required or permitted by law. Any personal information which you volunteer to the Academy will be treated with the highest standards of security and confidentiality, in accordance with the Data Protection Acts 1988-2003 and 2018, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR; EU 2016/679) and Directive 2002/58/EC ("ePrivacy Directive").
Collection and Use of Personal Information
Any information which you provide in this way is not made available to any third parties and is used by the Academy only in accordance with the purpose for which you provided the information and will only be retained for as long as required for the purpose. This is normally stated on the webpage or from where the information is requested and should be self-explanatory. However, if you have any specific queries about the purpose for which your information is to be used, you should contact our Data Protection Officer (DPO) before submitting the information.
Collection and use of technical information
Information on internet traffic is collected routinely by the Academy and also at other points along the route on the internet (e.g. HEAnet). This technical information is used to ensure the smooth running of the computer network in the Academy and for statistical or administrative purposes. It is not used to gather identifiable personal information on individual website visitors, except in so far as this is permitted by law and may be necessary in order to prevent or detect problems or offences in relation to the operation of the website.
You may request a copy of the data held about you, or request that data be corrected or updated. You may also request deletion of personal data and you may withdraw consent (for example to receiving our Newsletter) at any time. Requests for a copy of your data, or a complaint re unfair collection or processing of your data may be made to the Data Protection Officer by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by writing to the DPO at the address below.
