When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

Embedded content from other websites
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
Who we share your data with
We may disclose some or all of your Personal Data to the following parties: SOLAS business units, SOLAS agents or service providers including Safe Pass trainers, your existing or potential employers, government and state authorities including in particular the Construction Industry Federation [CIF] and Credit Card Systems Ireland Ltd.

How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognise and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
What rights you have over your data
If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
You have the right to know whether your Personal Data are being processed by us, how we use your Personal Data and your rights in relation to your Personal Data. We comply with this by way of this Notice.
You have the right to request a copy of the Personal Data held by us about you
We will only charge you for making such an access request where we feel your request is unjustified or excessive.
You have the right to request that we amend any inaccurate Personal Data that we have about you. You have the right to ask us to erase your Personal Data where:

1. where you contest the accuracy of your Personal Data;

3. where we no longer need your Personal Data for the purposes of processing but you require the data in
relation to a legal claim.
When you exercise this right we may only store your Personal Data.
We may not further process the data unless you consent or the processing is necessary in relation to a legal claim or to protect the rights of another person or legal person or for reasons of important public interest.
We will inform you before the processing restriction is lifted.
You may request us to provide you with your Personal Data which you have given us, in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format and you may request us to transmit your Personal Data directly to another controller, where this is technically feasible. This right only arises where:
