Privacy – how we use information about you
VMS.ie is registered under the Data Protection Act (1988) which contains
important provisions governing the use of data about private individuals.
The main Irish law dealing with data protection is the Data Protection Act 1988. The 1988 Act was amended by the Data Protection (Amendment) Act 2003 - web version . An administrative consolidation (Web version) of the law is available here (pdf).
The 2003 Amendment Act brought our law into line with the EU Data Protection Directive 95/46/EC .
All Sections of the Acts are in force.
We do not ask for any information about you in order to let you use our site. Such use is subject to our VMS.ie Website Terms & Conditions.
However, it is necessary for us to capture and retain information on you and your enquiries in order to provide you with the VMS.ie Check, and to deal with subsequent upgrades and queries relating to the services you buy from us.
Information on the fact of your enquiry with us, or on the vehicle data provided to you in return, remains confidential and will only be provided to third parties for marketing purposes where you have given us your explicit consent at the time of purchase. Where consent has been given, it is our policy only to deal with third parties who can offer special benefits to VMS.ie customers.
VMS.ie is committed to fighting vehicle crime and works closely with law enforcement agencies, especially the police, to investigate vehicle theft and fraud. We value the information that such agencies provide, which helps all our customers avoid the risks presented by stolen vehicles.
In return, when you buy our services, you agree that we may provide data about you and your enquiry to the police or other law enforcement agencies, where doing so will assist them in their enquiries. You should also be aware that under section 28 of the Data Protection Act (1998), the police and other agencies can require us to disclose this information, again without your consent.
