Parents Plus knows that you care how information about you is used and shared, and we appreciate you trusting that we will do so carefully and sensibly. To better protect your privacy, we provide this Privacy Policy explaining our practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used by Parents Plus. The information below explains our policy regarding your privacy, both online and offline. By visiting www.parentsplus.ie or sharing personal information with Parents Plus you are accepting the practices described in this Privacy Statement.

What personally identifiable information is collected by Parents Plus?

When you visit our website, you may provide us with personal information (such as name, address, email address, telephone numbers) that you knowingly choose to disclose, which is collected on an individual basis for various purposes. These purposes include registering to receive email newsletters or other materials, requesting further information from us about projects and services, booking Parents Plus training, ordering Parents Plus training materials, making requests, submitting a form on our website, or simply asking a question. We receive and store any information you enter on our website or give us in any other way, whether it is online or offline. We ask for personal information so that we can fulfil your request and return your message. This information is retained and used in accordance with existing laws, rules, regulations, and other policies. Parents Plus does not collect personal information from you unless you provide it to us. If you choose not to provide any of that information, we may not be able to fulfil your request or complete your order, but you will still be free to browse the other sections of the websites owned and administered by Parents Plus. This means that you can visit our site without telling us who you are or revealing any personally identifiable information about yourself.

The way we use information

When you supply information about yourself for a specific purpose, we use the information for only that purpose (such as to provide the service or information you have requested). For example, you may be asked to give us individual information to receive information, to book a training or to order Parents Plus training materials. Similarly, we use information you provide about yourself or someone else when placing an order only to provide tax compliant receipts, ship the products and to confirm delivery. We do not share this information with outside parties except to the extent necessary to complete that order. In order to complete your order, your delivery address and delivery phone number that you provide for products are shared with our print company who dispatch the products for Parents Plus directly to you.

You can register with our website if you would like to receive updates on our new training, projects and services. Information you submit on our website or over the phone will not be used for this purpose unless you ‘opt-in’ specifically.

We use return email addresses to answer the email we receive, to receipt any transactions or if follow-up for that specific function is required. Such addresses are carefully guarded by Parents Plus for their specific purpose and are not shared with outside parties. An individual’s information is stored on a secure cloud system which we use to process data and keep in contact with you.

Parents Plus does not sell, rent, give-away or share its email addresses or other personal contact information with outside sources. Parents Plus also does not send mailings on behalf of other organisations.

Should any material changes be made to the ways in which we use personally identifiable information, Parents Plus will take commercially reasonable measures to obtain written or email consent from you. We will also post the changes to our use of personally identifiable information on our website at least 30 days prior to a change.

Our commitment to data security

Personally identifiable information is stored on our database which is a secure cloud system and is linked to the Parents Plus website. It is not publicly accessible. Further, personally identifiable information is only accessed by Parents Plus personnel on a “need to know” basis. To prevent unauthorised access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, we have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online. Parents Plus has data protection policies and procedures in place to ensure data security.
