Privacy policy

The Just Transition Greens are committed to protecting your privacy, and to the transparent use of any information you give us in accordance with our legal obligations. This Privacy Policy sets out in detail the purposes for which we process your personal data, who we share it with, what rights you have in relation to that data and everything else we think it’s important for you to know.

Personal data is any data which relates to a living individual who can be identified

  1. from that data, or
  2. from that data and other information which is in the possession of, or is likely to come into the possession of, the data controller,

and includes any expression of opinion about the individual and any indication of the intentions of the data controller or any other person in respect of the individual.

Who are we?

The Just Transition Greens; an affiliate group of the Green Party/Comhaontas Glas.

Who is in control of your data?

It is important that you understand who is responsible for keeping your data safe. We are the “controller” of all personal data collected and used by the Just Transition Greens for the purposes set out in this Privacy Policy. This means that we are responsible for deciding how and why your data is used and for ensuring that your data is handled legally and safely.

What data do we collect and where from?

Website subscription forms

We collect the details you submit to us when you complete an online form asking us to keep you updated on group activities and related issues.

Membership signups

When you join as member of the group we collect all the details you provide including contact details and any other details that are voluntarily provided.

Cookies and IP addresses

We collect information about how you interact with our websites using cookies and your connection’s Internet Protocol (IP) address, if your browser is set to accept/provide such.

What do we use your data for?

We use the data you provide us to communicate with our membership and supporters about group updates, activities and campaigns.

As a political group, we use your expressed political opinions to inform our campaigning including what issues we promote.

We use meta data such as the IP address and other information supplied by your browser to ensure the safety and security of this website.

Who do we share your data with?

Data is handled only by the volunteers or employees of the Just Transition Greens, and is not shared with outside organisations, including the Green Party/Comhaontas Glas, without the explicit permission of the individual.

Third-party platforms

From time to time we may need to share some of your data with third party data processors (such as technology providers, website hosts, online systems). Where we do so we will have a data processing agreement with the third party, and where they are located outside the European Economic Area (EEA) we will ensure that they provide enough security and privacy to enable us to meet our legal obligations to you.

An example of this would be where we use a third-party email provider to deliver our emails to you. We would need to share your email address with the supplier to carry out this function but their processing of your data would be in line with a data processing agreement we would have with them.

How long do we keep your data for?

Where you join as a member of the group, your data will be held for as long as you maintain your membership. If you choose to leave the group your data will be deleted.

Where data collected is non-identifiable (such as the automated logging of the IP addresses of visitors) that data may be held for a period of up to a year.

What rights do you have?

You have a number of rights under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Information on these rights and how you can exercise them are laid out on the citizens information website.

We will normally need to ask you for proof of your identity before we can respond to a request to exercise any of the rights protected by legislation and we may need to ask you for more information, for example to help us to locate the personal data that your request relates to.

Some of the rights you are entitled to under the GDPR and Irish Data protection legislation include:

  • Your right to access your data.
  • Your right to have your data rectified, restricted or erased.
  • Your right to move or transfer your data.
  • Your right to object to the use of your data.
  • Your right to not be affected by a decision based on automated processing.
  • Your right to information about the protection of your data.

To exercise any of the rights above please email
