The GPA takes necessary and reasonable steps to ensure the protection and privacy of your personal information. In accordance with our Data Protection Statement, we regularly review and implement new security and encryption technologies. While we do take all necessary steps to ensure the safety of your information, unfortunately, no data transmission over the internet can be guaranteed total security. While we do strive to protect all information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you give to us or obtain from our online services and products. Therefore, the use of our services is at your own risk.
However, once your information does come into our possession – we take all reasonable actions to protect your information from unauthorised access, loss or misuse. We also strive to protect that information from modification or disclosure. If we find that a security breach has occurred, we have procedures to minimise the effects and we will liaise with you and the office of the Data Protection Commissioner as appropriate.
As a membership organisation, the Gaelic Players Association takes the protection of our members’ data very seriously. We are proud of the wide range of services that we provide to our members and how we strive to Support our Players in everything that we do.
Every decision we make is underpinned by this intrinsic value so that we can always ensure we do the right thing for our members, our colleagues, our suppliers and our organisation. Because of this are acutely aware of the importance of our members’ data that we hold on their behalf.
Oversight of GDPR compliance has been carried out by the GPA’s Risk & Audit Committee with the day to day operations carried out by the organisation’s Data Protection Officer (DPO).
Work has been undertaken in the following areas:
