What are your rights under data protection law?

You have the right to know about and look at the information we hold about you. The new regulation say that we have to get back to you within 30 days to let you know how you can see your information, or a reason why we have refused your request. If we refuse your request to access your information, or you are not happy with what we are doing with your information, you can contact the Data Protection Commissioner’s Office, Canal House, Station Road, Portarlington, Co. Laois R32 AP23 or at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .

The Data Protection Commissioner will check to see if we are holding your information within the law, and will ask us why we have refused your request. If we do not have a lawful reason for refusal they will direct us to release your information to you.

We are telling you this because the GDPR requires us to ensure that you know we have personal and sensitive information about you, why we have it, and what we do with it. You have the right to ask questions about the information we hold and to correct any information you think is incorrect in relation to you. Saint John of God Community Services do not use any automated processing in relation to your data. If we wish to use your information for any other purpose outside of service delivery and any legal obligations we need to ask you for your consent and you have a choice to grant it or not.
