The Irish Banking Culture Board (IBCB) fully respects your right to privacy and actively seeks to preserve the privacy rights of those who share information with the IBCB. Any personal information which you volunteer to the IBCB will be treated with the highest standards of security and confidentiality, in accordance with Irish and European Data Protection legislation. Personal data will be processed fairly and lawfully in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation (EU) 2016/679 and the Data Protection Act 2018.

The IBCB will only collect your data when you voluntarily provide it to us via email or when you complete our surveys. The IBCB might ask you for some personal information when completing our surveys. The data we collect about you will be used to support us in ensuring we get cognitive diversity. The data we collect from you will be used by the IBCB only in accordance with the purposes outlined in this privacy notice.

For the purposes outlined in this Data and Privacy Policy, your personal data will be processed based on informed consent.

Please note that the policy relates only to living individuals in relation to personal data relating directly to themselves.

Any data we collect from you will be stored confidentially and securely. In keeping with the data protection principles, we will only store your data for as long as is necessary, but no more than 12 months after the completion of the survey or after we have dealt with your query.

When we store your personal data on our systems the data will be stored either on the IBCB premises or on secure IT platforms within the EEA which are also subject to European data protection requirements.

We may share this data with third parties who provide a service to us such as our external content management system, our member banks, or as reasonably necessary. These third parties may only process this data for the purpose of providing us with their services, and no other purpose. These third parties may transfer data to countries outside of the European Economic Area (EEA) subject to appropriate safeguards being in place.
