The Irish Data Protection Commission (DPC) is responsible for monitoring the application of the GDPR and protecting the data protection rights of individuals.
You may receive a letter from the DPC for a variety of reasons. For example:
Complaint from an individual:
An individual may have complained to the DPC about you.
The DPC has extensive powers to investigate a complaint.
The DPC does not need to wait for a complaint.
It can proactively seek evidence of your compliance with GDPR.
You may also be selected by the DPC to be audited as part of a themed audit.
Step 1: Contact me
Contact me using the form below.
Provide some basic information about the situation. I don’t need too much detail.
Give me your direct contact number and your email address. I will respond as soon as possible, usually within 24 hours.
Step 2: Free initial call
If I think I can help you, we will arrange a quick (no more than 20-30 min) phone conversation to work through the situation. I will give you some pointers to help you.
We can then decide if you need further help from me. You’re under no obligation.
Step 3: After our call
If you don’t want further help, there is no step 3. You’re under no obligation to engage me further.
If you do want my assistance and I think I can help, we can agree a scope and a cost for my involvement.
