We do not rent or sell your personal data to anyone.

We may share and disclose information (including Personal Data) about our site visitors or customers in the following limited circumstances:

Vendors, consultants and other service providers:  We may share your information with third party vendors, consultants and other service providers who we employ to perform tasks on our behalf. These companies include (for example) our payment processing providers, website analytics companies (e.g., Google Analytics), email platform (e.g. Microsoft Office 365), mail service providers (e.g. MailChimp), event registration providers (e.g. Event Brite) and others. Appropriate controls are in place to ensure data is only disclosed to these 3rd parties in compliance with data protection law.

Unless we tell you differently and you consent, our 3rd parties do not have any right to use the personal data we share with them beyond what is necessary to assist us.

Others: We will also give your data to Dublin zoo.. We won’t but we have this sentence in here to see how many site visitors actually see it. Let us know that you’ve spotted this – You will have our immediate respect.

Business Transfers: We may choose to buy or sell assets, and may share and/or transfer customer information in connection with the evaluation of and entry into such transactions. Also, if we (or our assets) are acquired, or if we go out of business, enter bankruptcy, or go through some other change of control, your personal data could be one of the assets transferred to or acquired by a third party.

Yes. A small number of our 3rd party service providers explicitly state that they transfer personal data outside of the EEA.

The service providers are listed below, along with their legal basis for each transfer:

    • MailChimp (email automation): EU-US Privacy Shield.
    • Event Brite (event registration): EU-US Privacy Shield.
    • Google Analytics (website analytics) – EU-US Privacy Shield.
We use appropriate technical, organizational and administrative security measures to protect any information we hold in our records from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction.

For example, on our website:

      • We use regular Malware Scanning on our site to confirm it is safe to use.
      • We use a range of security tools to monitor activity on the site and identify unusual activity.
      • Your personal information is only accessible to a limited number of persons who have special access rights to such systems, and are required to keep the information confidential.
      • In addition, all information you supply through the website is encrypted via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology between your browser and the site.

In terms of local devices, Code in Motion has implemented a range of security measures to protect the information we hold in our records. For example:

      • All devices (including backup devices) use disk encryption so data is secure at rest.
      • Devices automatically lock after a short period of inactivity to reduce the risk of unauthorised access.
      • Devices are ‘patched’ (updated with the latest security updates) on a regular basis.

The 3rd party service providers who we employ to perform certain tasks also commit to implementing appropriate security measures to protect the data that we disclose to them.

Unfortunately, no company or service can guarantee complete security. Unauthorized entry or use, hardware or software failure, and other factors, may compromise the security of user information at any time.

It depends. Different types of personal data is retained for different periods of time.

At a high level, personal data is retained for only as long as Code in Motion has a legitimate basis to retain the data.

For example:

    • Personal data you provide when signing up for our email marketing lists is retained until such time as you unsubscribe. After you unsubscribe, we retain minimal information to ensure we do not forget that you have unsubscribed.
    • Personal data provided as part of a contract between us and that we require to establish, perform, or defend a legal action relating to the contract is retained for a period of 7 years after the contract has ended.
Where we ask you for information, we will usually indicate if a field is optional or mandatory. For example, we may display an asterix beside a mandatory field.

Fields are usually mandatory because we need them to engage with you (e.g. we need your email address if you send us a message on our Contact Form).

Where a field is optional, there is no significant impact if you choose not to provide this information to us.

Code in Motion does not make decisions based solely on automated processing that could have legal or otherwise significant effects on you.
