Energy Communities Tipperary Cooperative offer an email newsletter to those people who consent to receiving it. The following is our Privacy Statement in regards to how we process your personal data for this newsletter.
Who we are:
Energy Communities Tipperary Cooperative
2nd Floor, Friars Court, Nenagh, Co. Tipperary
Where do we process personal data:
Energy Communities Tipperary Cooperative stores and processes personal data in Ireland.
Purpose of the processing:
Energy Communities Tipperary Cooperative process personal data for the purpose of sending you a newsletter by email. In order to do this we process your email address only.
The legal basis for this processing is Consent, which you may withdraw at any time by clicking the unsubscribe link in any of the newsletters you may receive. This will instantly remove you from our mailing list.
You may also send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to have your details removed, but please note this email address is only monitored Monday-Friday, 09:00-17:00, excluding bank holidays, so there may be a slight delay in carrying out your request.
Recipient(s) of the personal data:
There are no recipients of your personal data.
Details of transfers to third country/countries:
We are presently carrying out due diligence of mass emailing providers to ensure that their processing will be GDPR compliant. We will update this section when we have entered into a contractual arrangement with the selected company.
Data Retention period:
When we receive your consent for this newsletter, we will maintain that for up to 2 years. This is an ECTC internal policy.
We set this because, occasionally, a customer has had some work carried out on their home one year and then a new measure or grant may become available in a subsequent year so we would like to make them aware of this. They may also like to hear about developments in their community which ECTC has been able to facilitate.
Towards the end of the 2 year period, we will offer the subscriber an option to sign-up again for a further 2 year period, but if they do not provide consent, they will be removed from the mailing list.
