We also use Personal Information to complete payment transactions. We only collect and process your Personal Information to the extent it is necessary to fulfill these purposes and where we can rely on a legal basis for such.
We use Personal Information we collect to provide products and/or services to you, keep our websites running smoothly, and protect us legally. We will not use or share your Personal Information in ways unrelated to those described below and will not sell your Personal Information for any purpose.

- Owners, administrators and other Customer representatives and personnel, as defined in the Customer Agreement, may be able to access, modify or restrict access to Personal Information.
- We may disclose or use aggregated or de-identified Personal Information for any purpose. For example, we may share aggregated or de-identified information with prospects or partners for business or research purposes, such as showing a total count of active users accessing our products.
- If we receive a request for information, we may disclose Personal Information if we reasonably believe disclosure is in accordance with or required by any applicable law, regulation, or legal process.

How long does The Irish Gift Shop keep your data?
The Irish Gift Shop only processes and keeps Personal Information for as long as necessary to achieve the purpose for which the information was collected. The length of time we keep Personal Information in The Irish Gift Shop’s control depends on our processing purposes and applicable statutory retention period for that type of information. After the statutory period-of-time passes, or if storage of Personal Information is not needed, Personal Information is deleted or anonymized.
The Irish Gift Shop takes appropriate administrative, physical, and organizational security measures to protect your Personal Information from theft, misuse, loss, and unauthorized access. We follow generally accepted practices in the industry to protect the Personal Information submitted to us, both during transmission and after receipt, considering the nature of the information and the risks involved in processing, and comply with applicable laws, rules, and regulations. While we have taken reasonable steps to secure the Personal Information you provide to us, please be aware that despite The Irish Gift Shop’s best efforts, no security measures are perfect or impenetrable, and no method of data transmission can be guaranteed against any interception or other type of misuse. Any information disclosed online is vulnerable to interception and misuse by unauthorized parties. Therefore, we cannot guarantee complete security if you provide Personal Information via our Websites.
NOTICE TO ALL NON-U.S. RESIDENTS
The Irish Gift Shop servers are located in the U.S. If you are located outside of the U.S., please be aware that any information provided to us, including Personal Information, will be transferred from your country of origin to the U.S. POM transfers and processes data, including the data transfers under the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield, the Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield, and the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), in accordance with applicable laws and regulations.
NOTICE FOR CALIFORNIA RESIDENTS
The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) is a new data privacy law that applies to certain businesses which collect Personal Information from California residents. The law became effective on January 1, 2020. POM already offers data protection terms pursuant to the GDPR in Europe. We are now also offering the same terms under the CCPA. Your rights under the CCPA are described below. Please note that The Irish Gift Shop does not rent or sell any Personal Information.
In addition, California Civil Code Section 1798.83, also known as the “Shine The Light” law, permits California residents to request and obtain from us, once a year and free of charge, (1) information about categories of Personal Information (if any) we disclosed to third parties for direct marketing purposes, and, (2) the names and addresses of the third parties with which we shared Personal Information in the preceding calendar year. If you are under 18 years of age, reside in California, and have a registered account with our websites, you have the right to request removal of unwanted data that you publicly post on our Websites. To request removal of such data, please contact us using the contact information provided below, and include the email address associated with your account and a statement that you reside in California. We will make sure the data is not publicly displayed on our websites, but please be aware that the data may not be completely or comprehensively removed from our systems.
