legal duty, the relevant law will specify who receives it. If I need to deal with it to establish, exercise, or
defend my legal rights, it will be passed to and dealt with by my legal advisers, and, on occasion, by other
parties to a relevant dispute or their advisers, or to expert or other witnesses, or to the court, tribunal,
arbitrator, mediator, or similar entity. Occasionally, legal provisions or a court order may require me to
deal with personal information for a purpose apart from why I got it, or was otherwise dealing with it.
I will keep personal information only as long as is necessary for the purposes set out in this Privacy Notice
or as required by law. I will not, without your express consent, specific to the particular personal
information and the relevant purpose, keep it or otherwise deal with it (than to delete it) once I am no
longer a member of either House of the Oireachtas and there is no prospect of my being re-elected
within a short interval of weeks after that. There may be rare exceptions to this assurance, such as where
the personal information is relevant to a legal dispute ongoing at the time when I stop being a member.
It would be very exceptional for me to deal with personal information for a purpose other than the
purpose for which I received it. The need to do so might arise because of a legal obligation. Or it might
arise in the public interest, for example, if I received personal information in relation to planned
committee or other parliamentary business, but there appeared to be legitimate grounds for forwarding
it to a regulatory or investigative authority. Depending on the circumstances, I may need to tell you of
the contemplated further dealing with the personal information and who is going to receive it.
You may ask me for a copy of your personal information. You may ask me to supplement or correct your
personal information if it is incomplete or incorrect (including out of date). You may be able to ask me to
delete personal information, especially if you have withdrawn consent to my dealing with it or I no longer
need it, or not to deal with it for the time being, for example, if you think it is incorrect. If I am dealing
with your personal information on the basis of your consent, you can normally require me to forward it
on to some other person named by you. You may be entitled to object to my dealing with your personal
information in the public interest or in my exercise of official authority, but this entitlement is subject to
many legal qualifications depending on the personal information and why I am dealing with it. You may
object at any stage to my holding on to your contact details (other than your name and address on the
electoral register) and in nearly every conceivable circumstance I will respect your wishes about this. You
are entitled not to be subject to automated decision making, including profiling.
