Grants Data Protection Notice

Data protection is a fundamental right. As set out in Article 8 of the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights:

 

  1. Everyone has the right to the protection of personal data concerning him or her.
  2. Such data must be processed fairly for specified purposes and on the basis of the consent of the person concerned or some other legitimate basis laid down by law. Everyone has the right of access to data which has been collected concerning him or her, and the right to have it rectified.
  3. Compliance with these rules shall be subject to control by an independent authority.

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is designed to give individuals more control over their personal data. Enterprise Ireland became subject to the GDPR on the 25th May 2018, replacing the existing data protection framework under the EU Data Protection Directive.
