TaxPlus Accountants Privacy Statement
TaxPlus Accountants has created this Privacy Statement to demonstrate our firm commitment to privacy.
TaxPlus Accountants wants to ensure, to our best efforts, that any information you give us remains private and is used only for the purposes outlined in this policy.
A user can access our website, www.taxplusaccountants.ie, and utilise many of our services without providing any information to us at all.
Throughout this website you may have an opportunity to send us information relating to you such as through the “contact us” pages or any other area where you may send e-mails, request brochures or respond to any promotions. By choosing to participate in these, you will be providing us with some level of personal information relating to you. This information will only be used by TaxPlus Accountants for the purposes for which it was provided by you, for verification purposes and for statistical analysis.
We are committed to protecting your personal data in accordance with the Data Protection Act 2018 (DPA 2018) and the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR).
We process personal data for several purposes and the means of collection, lawful basis of processing, use, disclosure, and retention periods for each purpose may differ.
Our policy is to collect only the personal data necessary for agreed purposes and we ask clients to only share personal data where it is strictly needed for those purposes. We collect personal data from our clients or from third parties acting on the instructions of the relevant client.
We process personal data to provide professional services such as accounting, tax advice, general or specific business advice as part of the range of services we offer. We also process personal data in the administration and management of our business.
Your business contact details are used to provide you with information about our services and other information which we think will be of interest to you, unless you tell us not to.
We are subject to legal, regulatory and professional obligations. We need to keep certain records to demonstrate that our services are provided in compliance with those obligations and those records may contain personal data.
Personal data processed is kept by us for as long as is considered necessary for the purpose for which it was collected (including as required by applicable law or regulation). In the absence of specific legal, regulatory or contractual requirements, our retention policy period for records and other documentary evidence created in the provision of services is 6 years.
We take the security of your data we hold seriously. We have a policy including procedures and training in place covering data protection, confidentiality and security and regularly review the appropriateness of the measures we have in place to keep the data we hold secure.
We will only share personal data with others when we are legally permitted to do so. When we share data with others, we put contractual arrangements and security mechanisms in place to protect your data.
Under the DPA (2018) and GDPR, Individuals have certain rights over their personal data and data controllers are responsible for upholding these rights.
