Data Protection & Privacy Statement
FLAC (the Free Legal Advice Centres Ltd) (registered number 49413, registered charity number CHY6097, place of registration: Dublin, Ireland) is committed to protecting the privacy of our supporters. The Privacy Statement below will explain to you how we collect, store and use personal information submitted to us.
We endeavour to protect our users' information, through compliance with the Data Protection Acts 1988-2018 (as amended). Visit www.dataprotection.ie for more information. When our supporters submit personal and sensitive information, this information is protected by a secure system both online and offline.
When you contact FLAC in relation to an event, activity, campaign, send or receive information or make a donation, you can provide us with your personal information. This data is stored on our secure computerised database to enable us to respond to your requests, keep you updated and informed about our work and how your donation(s) is being used. In the future, we may communicate with you by mail, email or telephone.
This statement is subject to change and any such changes to our privacy statement will be posted on this page without prior notification. Contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions about privacy or security.
Names, addresses, telephone numbers and email addresses are protected by FLAC on a computerised system to ensure that loss, misuse, unauthorised access or disclosure, alteration or destruction of this information is not probable.
You may inform us of any changes in your personal data, and in accordance with our obligations under the Data Protection Acts 1988-2018 we will update or delete your personal data accordingly. To find out what personal data we hold on you or to have your personal data updated, amended or removed from our database, please email it to us at email@example.com. Any such data subject requests may be subject to the fee prescribed under the Data Protection Acts 1988-2018.
Credit card donations made through the FLAC website are managed using a secure payment system called Stripe. Stripe is certified to PCI Service Provider Level 1, the most stringent level of certification available in the payments industry.
All credit card data provided is processed securely by Stripe – the only data sent to FLAC are your contact details and the amount of the donation, so that we can acknowledge and thank you for it. Stripe charges a small fee for each payment made - 1.4% of the transaction plus €0.25 (excluding VAT), so for example a donation of €250 costs FLAC €4.61.
We use the information collected by cookies to provide necessary services to our users, such as taking donations. We also use them to help us understand more about how our website is used by our supporters and how we could improve what we do to better suit their needs.
