We do not accept responsibility for the content of the websites we link to. We do not sponsor, endorse or otherwise approve of any information or statements appearing in a linked website (nor in websites referred to in or linked to a linked website) and we are not responsible if a linked website is not working properly. It is your responsibility to enter into and comply with any software or other licences required to access or use any linked websites and any material they contain or link to.

Data protection

We comply with the requirements of the Irish Data Protection (amended) Act 2003 governing the obtaining, use, retention, security and transfer of personal information. However, we cannot accept responsibility for the use of personal information once transferred to a third party website.

Personal information collected during registration and ordering from the online shop will only be held for the purposes of fulfilling orders, and we will only contact you if there is a problem with your order or if you have specified you would like to receive information from us.

How do we protect your information?

We implement a variety of security measures to maintain & safeguard your personal information when you place an order or access your personal information.

We use a secure server so that all supplied sensitive/credit information is transmitted via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology and then encrypted into our Payment gateway provider’s database (BBMS). When you make an online transaction, we do not receive any credit card details. We do not see or store your full card details when you make an online transaction.

Mental Health Ireland takes, and will continue to take, all reasonable steps (which includes relevant technical and organisational measures) to guarantee the safety of the data you provide to us and we will only use the data for the intended purpose.

However, the nature of the internet is such that we cannot guarantee or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us via the Internet will be 100% secure.

Financial details

If you wish to make an automated payment in order to purchase any goods or to donate we will require your credit card number and expiry date. Your financial information is used solely for this purpose. Your financial information will be passed directly to a credit card processing company (PayPal). No record of your financial information will be held on this site or otherwise by us following the processing of your payment. The credit card processing company does not use, share, retain or store this information for any purpose, other than to process your payment for the above purpose.
