Due to the variety of services offered by our office, Belgard Solicitors LLP are both a Data Processor and a Data Controller. The below table provides a summary of the services offered by our office, and whether we are the Data Processor, or Data Controller for each area.
This Privacy Notice applies only to the personal data being processed by our office under our capacity as a Data Controller. If your personal data is being processed by our office under our capacity as a Data Processor, we suggest you make contact with the Data Controller who will provide you with a copy of their Privacy Notice. If you are unsure as to who the Data Controller is for your personal information, please write to The Compliance Department, Belgard Solicitors LLP, Block B, Cookstown Court, Old Belgard Road, Tallaght, Dublin 24, and our staff will be happy to provide you with the relevant contact details.

For conveyancing matters, we process data for the purpose of preparing legal documents in relation to the sale, purchase, or transfer of property. The legal basis for the processing of this data is processing necessary for the performance of a contract to which you are a party.
We share this data with our practice management system provider who may only process this data for the purpose of providing us with their services, and no other purpose.
We may also share certain parts of this data other parties, including but not limited to counterpart solicitors, Estate Agencies, Property Management Companies, Lending Institutions, Local Authorities, Revenue, Registry of Deeds, Land Registry, Engineers, and Architects etc.
As a general rule, we keep your information for a specified period after the date on which the transaction has completed or you cease to be a client. In most cases this period is twelve (12) years in respect of conveyancing matters. This period is in line with the Statute of Limitations 1957.
Where relevant and necessary, we may transfer your personal data outside the European Economic Area, including to a jurisdiction which has not been recognised by the European Commission as providing for an equivalent level of protection for personal data as is provided for in the European Union. If and to the extent that we do so, we will ensure that appropriate measures are in place to comply with our obligations under applicable law governing such transfers, which may include:
entering into a contract governing the transfer which contains the ‘standard contractual clauses’ approved for this purpose by the European Commission or
seeking and obtaining your explicit consent to the transfer or
where the transfer is necessary for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.
We may receive details of your personal information from other parties, including but not limited to counterpart solicitors, Estate Agencies, Property Management Companies, Lending Institutions, Local Authorities, Revenue, Registry of Deeds, Land Registry, Engineers, and Architects etc.
You have the following rights under the GDPR, in certain circumstances and subject to certain exemptions, in relation to your personal data:
In order to exercise any of the rights set out above, please write to The Compliance Department, Belgard Solicitors LLP, Block B, Cookstown Court, Old Belgard Road, Tallaght, Dublin 24.
If we are processing personal data based on your consent, you may withdraw that consent at any time. This does not affect the lawfulness of processing which took place prior to its withdrawal.
If you are unhappy with how we process personal data, we ask you to contact us so that we can rectify the situation.
You may lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority. The Irish supervisory authority is the Data Protection Commission. You can contact the Office of the Data Protection Commission at https://www.dataprotection.ie/docs/Contact-us/b/11.html
