Dublin Chamber is committed to ensuring you enjoy a customer experience that helps you conduct business internationally.  We are also committed to managing and protecting your personal data and have updated our
Data Protection and Privacy Notice.


What is the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)?

The GDPR is an update to existing data protection law and comes into effect across the EU on 25th May 2018. The GDPR will give you more control over your personal information and places greater accountability on Dublin Chamber and all organisations when collecting, using and keeping safe your personal data.  Being transparent in how we manage your personal data is a key part of the GDPR.


What personal data do we collect?

Personal data we collect includes contact details and any other data deemed necessary to help you with your business interests. Personal data will be retained as long as you remain a customer, thereafter for a period of generally no more than six years or where we have a legal obligation to do so.  


How do we use your data?

We will use your data to perform consular service and international duties such as ATA Carnets, Certificates of Origin, Legalisations, Visas, events and International advisory services, such as Enterprise Europe Network and our International E-zine.  We may also use your data to tailor information, content and marketing material so that it is more relevant to you. 


Who is your data shared with?

Your data is secure with Dublin Chamber.  Personal information shared with us will only ever be used by us and trusted partners to enhance your customer experience.  Members' contact details are displayed on our Membership Directory, which is accessible only by members.  Data is only ever transferred outside of the EU where customers have engaged in consular services or international support, when there is a legitimate reason to do so, or by our service providers in which case we will put in place appropriate arrangements to protect your Personal Data.


What rights do you have?

You have lots of rights under GDPR including the right to receive a copy of your personal data that we hold and the right to object to us processing your data, in part or in its entirety.  Should you choose to restrict the use of your personal data, your ability to connect with new businesses and your overall customer experience may be affected.

As a Dublin Chamber customer, you receive information about our events, opportunities, newsletter and other communications deemed to be of interest to you. We would like to carry on sending you this information but if you wish to stop receiving these communications at any time please contact our Membership Team: info@dublinchamber.ie or write to Membership Team, Dublin Chamber, 7 Clare Street, Dublin 2.

We will continue to give you an opportunity to manage your preferences about receiving marketing communications each time we contact you.


How do I find out more?

You currently do not need to take action, although we do recommend you familiarise yourself with our Data Protection and Privacy Notice to learn more about how Dublin Chamber collects, processes and stores your personal data.

We do ask that you make an effort to keep your own contact details up to date, so that new connections can be made and relevant communications can be sent to you. 


Should you have questions regarding your personal data, please contact our Head of Marketing, Paul O’Neill: paul@dublinchamber.ie or write to c/o Paul O’Neill, Dublin Chamber, 7 Clare Street, Dublin 2.
