In particular these rights include the right to object to processing of your Personal Data where that processing is carried out for our legitimate interests. It is important to note that these rights are not absolute, and are subject to a number of limitations and restrictions.

Right to Object to processing of Personal Data
You have a right to object at any time to the processing of your Personal Data where we process your Personal Data on the legal basis of pursuing our legitimate interests and the right to object to direct marketing. When we process your Personal Data based on our legitimate interests, we make sure to consider and balance any potential impact on you and your data protection rights. We will not use your Personal Data for activities where our interests are overridden by the impact on you (unless we have your consent or are otherwise required or permitted by Member State or European Union law).

Right of Access
You have the right to request a copy of the Personal Data held by us about you and to access the information which we hold about you. EPIC Ireland will action the request without undue delay, subject to certain limitations or where the right may “adversely affect the rights or freedoms of others”.

Right to Rectification
You have the right to have any inaccurate Personal Data which we hold about you updated or corrected, without undue delay.

Right to Erasure
In certain circumstances, you may also have your personal information deleted, for example, if you exercise your right to object and we do not have an overriding reason to process your Personal Data or if we no longer require your Personal Data for the purposes as set out in this notice. (consider retention periods)

Right to Restriction of Processing
You have the right to ask us to restrict processing your Personal Data in certain cases, including if you believe that the Personal Data we hold about you is inaccurate or our use of your information is unlawful. If you validly exercise this right, we will store your Personal Data and will not carry out any other processing until the issue is resolved.

Right to Data Portability
You may request us to provide you with your Personal Data which you have given us in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format and you may request us to transmit your Personal Data directly to another data controller where this is technically feasible. This right only arises where: (1) we process your Personal Data with your consent or where it is necessary to perform our contract with you; and (2) the processing is carried out by automated means.

If you wish to exercise any of the rights set out above, please submit a request to our Data Protection Officer in writing to River House, Blackpool Retail Park, Cork, T23 R5TF, Ireland.

We will provide you with information on any action taken upon your request in relation to any of these rights without undue delay and at the latest within 1 month of receiving your request. We may extend this up to 2 months if necessary, however we will inform you if this arises. Please note that we may ask you to verify your identity when you seek to exercise any of your data protection rights, in order to prevent the unauthorised disclosure of your personal data.

You will not usually have to pay a fee to access your personal data, but we reserve the right to charge you a reasonable administrative fee for (or we may refuse to comply with) any manifestly unfounded or excessive requests or any additional copies of the personal data you request from us.
You also have the right to lodge a complaint with the Data Protection Commission. For further information see
