Privacy Policy

Protecting personal privacy is a priority for ICOExaminer. We believe that we rigorously adhere to the core principles of true personal privacy and the right of every individual to manage their own personal data.

This policy describes what data we collect, and how we use and process such data.

Firstly, ICOExaminer is a news and information site, and when accessing it, you will be asked to supply your explicit consent to the data practices described in this statement.

We reserve the right to make changes to our privacy policy as the need arises to remain compliant with European, UK and Irish laws specifically, and to adhere to general international standards of good privacy practice.

We therefore encourage you to revisit this page from time-to-time to remain familiar with our commitment to meeting your privacy concerns.

Collection of Personal Information

We do not collect or process any personal information from our readers when they browse this website. Some readers, however, may reach out to us via our contact form, and in doing so will be asked to supply us with their personal details – e.g. their name and email address. Your use of the contact form will be interpreted as explicit consent to share your personal information with us. We will, where requested, remove this contact information from our servers.

Use of Personal Information

We do make use of third party services who practise their own internal policies for data privacy – for example, Google Analytics, an industry standard tool which provides non-personal, aggregated visitor data to us allowing us to know the number of readers who view our website and where they are coming from.

We never sell, rent or lease any such data made available to us from these third party services to anyone else. Nor do any of our third-party contracted services – to the best of our knowledge – supply us with personal information relating to our readers. We carry no data banks which process or store personal information.

However, our site will include links to third-party sites that may request such information from you on their own platforms. You are invited to consult with those third-party sites directly for any questions related to their own personal data management policies.

Use of Cookies

Our Cookie Policy is detailed on a separate page which can be found here.

Links to Other Sites

You will find on our site links that may take you to other websites. These are provided for your interest and convenience, but we cannot control – and are therefore not responsible for – how third parties will use and protect your data. If you choose to follow any of these links, make sure to check the privacy policy of the linked website to make sure they are also doing everything they can to protect your personal information.
