Privacy Policy

DAS Legal Expenses Insurance Company Limited (“DAS”) Privacy Statement 

Your privacy on www.das.ie

This Website is administered by DAS. The primary purpose of das.ie is to be a dynamic resource and business tool. We want you to feel secure when visiting our site and are committed to maintaining your privacy when doing so.

The following provides an overview of how we protect your privacy during your visit.

What information do we gather?

Information on das.ie is gathered in two ways: (1) indirectly (for example, through our site's technology); and (2) directly (for example, if you fill in a claim form online).

One example of information we collect indirectly is through our internet access logs. When you access das.ie, your Internet address is automatically collected and is placed in our internet access logs.

We collect information directly from you in a number of ways, some of which we describe in this Privacy Statement. One way is through the use of cookies. Cookies are small files which save and retrieve information about your visit to das.ie - for example, how you entered our site, how you navigated through the site, and what information was of interest to you. The cookies we use identify you merely as a number. (If you are uncomfortable regarding cookies use, please keep in mind that you can disable cookies on your computer by changing the settings in the preferences or options menu in your browser.)

Please note that calls to and from our office are recorded for training and quality purposes.

How do we use this information?

We analyse it to determine what is most effective about our site, to help us identify ways to improve it, and eventually, to determine how we can tailor www.das.ie to make it more effective. We may also use data for other purposes, which we would describe to you at the point we collect the information.

Will we share this with outside parties?

We will not sell individual information. It is completely up to you whether or not you want to provide information, however if using our online claim forms we do have mandatory fields that we ask you to complete in order to gather enough information to begin processing your claim.

What about sensitive personal data?

We do not generally seek to collect sensitive personal data through this site. If we do seek to collect such data, we will ask you to consent to our proposed uses of the data. We may also collect some sensitive personal data incidentally. By providing us with unsolicited sensitive personal data, you consent to our using the data subject to applicable law as described in this notice. The references to "sensitive personal data" are to the various categories of personal data identified by European and other data privacy laws as requiring special treatment, including in some circumstances the need to obtain explicit consent.

As a global organisation, data we collect may be transferred internationally throughout DAS’s worldwide organisation. While we take steps to maintain the security of das.ie, you should understand that the open nature of the Internet is such that data may flow over networks without security measures and may be accessed and used by people other than those for whom the data is intended.

In conclusion we are interested in maintaining your privacy and creating a valuable resource for you to use. If you have any questions now or during your visit, please contact us at customerrelations@das.ie. If you have any technical difficulties using or viewing our website please contact us at webmaster@das.co.uk.
