The Irish Data Protection Act, 2018 (Irish DPA) implements the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and transposes the European Union Law Enforcement Directive in Ireland. Since it incorporates most of the provisions from the GDPR and the Law Enforcement Directive with limited additions and deletions as per the national law, it is considered to be the principal data protection legislation in Ireland.
The Irish DPA provides the same rights to data subjects with respect to their personal data as that of the GDPR. These rights give data subjects control over their data and may be processed under particular conditions and limitations.
The CCPA strictly requires businesses not to discriminate against their consumers for exercising their rights under the CCPA. Businesses are allowed to vary their services or change the price of goods and services, if the difference in service or price is reasonably related to the value of the consumers’ personal information to the business.
The right to erasure gives consumers the right to request deletion of all their data stored by the organization. Not only are organizations supposed to comply within 45 days but are also required to deliver a report on the deleted information to the consumer.
Where the personal data is processed for archiving purposes in the public interest, or processed for scientific or historical research purposes or statistical purposes, the Irish DPA allows the restriction of data subjects’ rights, if the exercise of the right would likely render impossible, or seriously impair the achievement of those purposes and such restriction is necessary for the fulfillment of those purposes.
The Irish DPA reaffirms the obligations of organizations as outlined in the GDPR. Some of the key obligations for Irish organizations are as follows:
In Ireland, the European Union’s e-Privacy Directive was implemented into the e-Privacy Regulations of 2011. These regulations require organizations to obtain data subject’s valid consent prior to the installation of cookies and provide the data subject clear and comprehensive information in accordance with the Irish DPA.
