If your information is no longer needed by us, we will take all reasonable steps to permanently remove personal identification from the information collected about you.

Where M1 Drogheda Chamber Skillnet holds personal information about you, it will provide you with access to the information on request, in a form or manner suitable to your reasonable needs, except to the extent that:

  • providing access would pose a serious and imminent threat to the life or health of any individual; or
  • providing access would have an unreasonable impact upon the privacy of other individuals; or
  • the request for access is frivolous or vexatious; or
  • the information relates to existing legal dispute resolution proceedings between M1 Drogheda Chamber Skillnet and you, and the information would not be accessible by the process of discovery in those proceedings; or
  • providing access would reveal the intentions of M1 Drogheda Chamber Skillnet in relation to negotiations with the individual in such a way as to prejudice those negotiations; or
  • providing access would be unlawful; or
  • denying access is specifically authorised by law; or
  • providing access would be likely to prejudice an investigation of possible unlawful activity; or

  • the enforcement of laws relating to the confiscation of the proceeds of crime;
  • the protection of the public revenue;
  • the prevention, detection, investigation or remedying of Seriously Improper Conduct; or
  • preparation for, or conduct of, proceedings before any court or tribunal, or implementation of its orders; by or on behalf of an enforcement agency; or
  • Any Legal, statutory or an enforcement agency performing a lawful national security function asks M1 Drogheda Chamber Skillnet not to provide access on the basis that providing access would be likely to cause damage to the national security of Ireland.
