This website is maintained by Citytest. Citytest fully respects your right to privacy. Any personal data you volunteer will be used for the purpose for which you supply it and will be treated with the highest standards of security and confidentiality, strictly in accordance with the Data Protection Acts and applicable EU directives. It will only be shared, if necessary, in accordance with law and where you have given consent.
This statement relates to our privacy practices in connection with this website. Some technical terms used in this statement are explained at the end of this page.
Data Protection Acts
The Data Protection Acts 1988 and 2003 are designed to protect people’s privacy. They give effect to the Council of Europe Data Protection Convention. The Acts confer rights on individuals in relation to the privacy of their personal data as well as responsibilities on those persons holding and processing such data.
What is “personal data”?
Personal data means data relating to a person who is or can be identified either from the data itself or in conjunction with other information that is in, or is likely to come into, the possession of Citytest. It covers any information that relates to an identifiable, living individual. This data can be held on computers or in manual files.
A “data controller” means a person who, either alone or with others, controls the contents and use of personal data.
The Data Controller for Citytest.
The area nominated to carry out the functions of the Data Controller in Citytest is the IT Department.
7/8 City Quay,
Tel: +353 01-6799242
Citytest’ obligations under the Data Protection Acts are that:
● Data must be obtained and processed fairly.
● Data must be accurate, complete and where necessary, kept up to date.
● Data must have been obtained only for one or more specified, explicit and legitimate purpose.
● Data must not be further processed in a manner incompatible with that purpose.
● Data must be adequate, relevant and not excessive in relation to the purpose for which they were collected or are further processed.
● Data must not be kept for longer than is necessary for that purpose.
● Appropriate security measures must be taken against unauthorised access to, or unauthorised alteration, disclosure or destruction of the data, in particular where the processing involves the transmission of data over a network, and against all other unlawful forms of processing. Citytest employs the most appropriate physical and technical measures, including staff training and awareness and these are reviewed regularly.
● We owe a duty of care to the data subjects concerned, i.e. we must take care not to cause any of our customers damage or distress by, for example, maintaining inaccurate information on our files, or disclosing personal data to someone who is not entitled to this data.
Citytest takes its obligations very seriously and adopts the strongest line in relation to the misuse of customer information by any of its staff. Any breach of trust with regard to the confidentiality of information is treated as serious misconduct under the Disciplinary Code and can lead to sanctions up to and including dismissal.
Collection and use of personal information
This website does not collect any personal data, apart from information that you volunteer (for example, when filling a form) and your IP address. Any information you provide in this way is used only for the purpose for which you provide it. Currently these purposes can include:
Dealing with your enquiry
Applying for a job in the careers section
Right of Access
Under section 4 of the Acts a person has a right to be given a copy of his/her personal data. This subject access request (SAR) must be in writing through the postal service and is free of charge. You can make a subject access request by writing to: Citytest, 7-8 City Quay, Dublin 2, Ireland D02 Y663.
Your request should be as specific as possible, to enable us to identify where the particular data is held and also include evidence of your own identity such as a photocopy of your passport or photocopy of your driving license. A response to your access request will issue to you as soon as is possible and in any event within forty days.
Sections 4 & 5 of the Data Protection Acts set out a small number of circumstances in which your right to see your personal records can be limited. This is necessary in order to strike a balance between the rights of the individual, on the one hand, and some important needs of civil society, on the other hand. For example, the right of access to medical data is restricted in some very limited circumstances, where the health and mental well-being of the individual might be affected by obtaining access to the data. Your right to obtain access to examination results and to see information relating to other people is also curtailed.
Right of Rectification
Under section 6 of the Data Protection Acts, a person has a right to have his/her personal data corrected, if inaccurate, or erased, if there is not a legitimate reason for retaining the data. Citytest makes every effort to ensure that your personal data is accurate and only retained for as long as it is required. If you have reason to believe that your personal data held by Citytest is not accurate or should no longer be retained, you can write to: Citytest on the issue setting out clearly what personal data is at issue and the reasons why you consider it to be inaccurate and/or why Citytest should no longer retain it. There is no fee for this service. Write to CITYTEST, 7/8 City Quay, Dublin 2, D02 Y663, Ireland.
Concerns over Data Protection
If you are concerned that an official has accessed your personal information illegally and or that your personal data may have been disclosed to a 3rd party illegally you can make a formal written complaint to:
7/8 City Quay,
The matter will be investigated by Citytest and you will be notified regarding the outcome of the investigation as soon as possible.
