Privacy Policy

Last updated: This Privacy Policy was last updated on 18 February 2019.

The purpose of this Privacy Policy is to outline how AquaTT, as Industry4.E website manager, deals with any personal data you provide to us while visiting this website.

1. Website data we collect and what we use it for

a. When you use the Industry4.E website: Like most websites, we gather analytical data collected on an aggregate basis of all visitors to the website. The data that we collect through Google Analytics is anonymised and is therefore not personally identifiable. If you don’t want your data to be collected by Google Analytics, you can opt-out through https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.

Our website uses cookies to ensure that we give you the best experience on the website. A cookie is a small file of information which is sent to your computer when you visit a website. This file allows the site to recognise your browser and can be used to store user preferences. When you visit the website, we provide a cookie notification which informs you that we use cookies on this site. You can choose to accept cookies or not within your browser settings. Different browsers have different controls available to you. Typically, your browser will enable you to choose to accept, refuse or delete all cookies. Please select your browser below for further details.


b. Email subscription data we collect and what we use it for

Industry4.E produces an e-newsletter sent via email using the Mailchimp email marketing platform. Users can sign up to receive this e-newsletter via the “subscribe to our mailing list” link on the website homepage (eepurl.com/ghlul5). This web page is hosted by Mailchimp. To sign up to the e-newsletter, it is required that you provide your email address, your first name and last names. Optionally, you may also provide further details, such as your organisation name and stakeholder group. Mailchimp privacy policy can be viewed here: mailchimp.com/legal/privacy/.


2. What we do with your data

Aside from cookies, we do not collect, store or re-use any personally identifiable data as a result of your visit to the Industry4.E website. If this changes in the future, we will update this Privacy Policy accordingly. Your details will not be shared with any third parties, and all information is securely stored.

Data obtained through subscription to our Mailchimp mailing list will be stored on Mailchimp and AquaTT servers. The data you provide will not be shared with third parties. If you decide to provide your stakeholder group or organisation when signing up to the e-newsletter, we may use this data to analyse the demographics of subscribers and use this for reporting purposes on the project. This will not be in conjunction with your name or email, and will be anonymised.


3. Right to complain to the Data Protection Commissioner (DPC)

If you wish to raise a complaint, you can contact us (dataprotection@aquatt.ie) in the first instance. If you are not satisfied, you can complain to the DPC or exercise any of your other rights pursuant to data protection legislation (www.dataprotection.ie).


4. Updates to the Privacy Policy

We may change this Privacy Policy. The ‘Last updated’ section at the top of this page indicates when it was last revised. Any changes to this Privacy Policy will become effective when we post the revised version on the Industry4.E website. Your use of the Industry4.E website and services following these changes means that you accept the revised Privacy Policy.

5. How to contact us

The data controller for the Industry4.E website and services provided through this website is AquaTT, located at Olympic House, Pleasant’s Street, Dublin 8, Ireland.

If you need to contact AquaTT with regard to any of your rights as set out in this Privacy Statement, all such requests should be made in writing by emailing Olivia Daly at dataprotection@aquatt.ie.
