Privacy Policy

Introduction
Welcome to www.Transact.ie. At Transact.ie, your privacy is important to us and we respect your rights. The purpose of this Website Privacy Policy is to outline what information we collect, why we do, and how we deal with any personal data you provide to us while visiting this website.

What information do we collect and why?
During a transaction we may collect your data via our website such as your name, company name, telephone number and email address.  We do this so that we can handle your transaction. This information may be used to keep you informed of news and/or updates in Transact.ie but only where you have given us permission to do so.

The information we do not collect
Bank details, credit/debit card information – we have no reason to.

The way we use information
We use the information you provide to handle your enquiry so that we can send you information regarding your transaction.  We only keep personal information for as long as is necessary to provide our services, products and information.  We will not sell or rent or give to any third party any personally identifiable information about you like your email address for example.

Sharing of information
During a Transaction we are required to share certain data with other approved parties. Where you have approved others to work on your behalf – i.e. a solicitor – if you choose a solicitor from our panel we will forward the information you have provided to them. We will only ever provide this information with your express written consent.

Other information we collect
