SECTION 1 – WHAT DO WE DO WITH YOUR INFORMATION?

Email Communication: When you send us a message, you are consenting to receive communication from us regarding your inquiry. We may contact you with other information or updates about our services and/or marketing emails from thereon. You may opt out of receiving this communication by requesting to have your contact information removed from our records by any means provided at the end of this page.

You can choose to amend or delete any of the data the we collect and store about you at any time. You can contact us to request this by any of the means provided at the end of this page.

We will hold your data for different periods of time depending on the reason we collected your data for processing:

Data collected for communications and/or marketing purposes – we will hold your data for as long as we feel it is relevant to market our services to you and for as long as you are happy for us to do so. We will monitor the engagement of our marketing communications every 12 months. If we feel you are not engaging with our communications, we may delete the data that we store about you for these purposes.

SECTION 2 – CONSENT

What is consent?
Your ‘consent’ is your explicit permission to us to process your data for a specific reason. This mainly applies to us using your data for transactional (in order to complete a sale or fulfil an order) or marketing purposes.

How do you get my consent?

When you contact us through the contact form on the website, by email, by phone or in person; you are giving us consent to contact you and send you communications.

If we process your personal information for another reason, like marketing, we will ask you directly for your expressed consent, wherever possible, before doing so. This can take a few different forms on our site:

  • A tick box as part of the checkout process asking you to ‘subscribe to our newsletter’ or similar
  • A short form or pop-up box that asks for your email address, asking you to ‘Sign Up’ or similar
  • A short form that asks for your email address as part of a content download, where we will make it clear that you are also signing up for marketing communications

If you’ve given your consent by providing your email address, we will, wherever possible, also ask you to confirm your email address, which represents a double confirmation, or ‘double opt-in’ of your consent.

How do I withdraw my consent?

If, after you opt-in, you change your mind, you may withdraw your consent for us to contact you, or for the continued collection, use or disclosure of your information, at any time. The easiest way to do this is to click on the ‘manage preferences’ or ‘unsubscribe’ links at the bottom of our marketing emails. You can also achieve this by contacting our data controller, Eileen Choi at eileen@geniestherapeutics.com.

SECTION 3 – YOUR RIGHTS AROUND DATA

Data that we process about you belongs to you alone, and you have rights surrounding that data that we will (and are required by law) to respect. Here is a list of your individual rights around your data and what they mean:

Right to be informed

You have the right to know how we collect and use your data, how long we will store it and who we will share it with. That is the purpose of this privacy policy and our cookie policy.

Right of access

You have the right to obtain a copy of the personal data that we store about you. We are required to provide this to you in a commonly accessible format, free of charge, within 30 days of your request. Which we are happy to do!

Right to rectification

You have the right to have any inaccurate data that we store about you rectified, or completed if it is incomplete. We are required to complete this within 30 days of your request.

Right to erasure

You have the right to ‘be forgotten’. This means you can ask for us to delete some or all of the data that we store about you. We are required to complete this within 30 days of your request.

Right to restrict processing

You have the right to restrict how we process your data in certain circumstances. For example, if you asked us to correct data stored about you, you could also ask us to restrict how we process that data whilst we go about correcting it.

Right to data portability

You have the right to receive personal data stored by us about you in a commonly used machine readable format. You also have the right to request that we transmit this data directly to another controller.

Right to object

You have the right to object to your data being processed. This is not necessarily the same as the right to erasure, as it focuses more on the data being processed, as opposed to being stored. For example, if you objected to us using your data for marketing purposes, we would stop processing it for marketing purposes.

If you feel anything in this privacy policy or in these rights is unclear, please feel free to contact our data controller, Michele Beirne at reception[@]beirnegannonco.ie.
