It is the intention of this privacy statement to explain to you the information practices of Money Plus in relation to the information we collect about you and other users. Money Plus maintains the same privacy practices with respect to data that is collected off-line and on-line and this notice also covers both those methods of data collection and use.
For the purposes of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) the data controller is:
- Money Plus, Harmony Hill, Sligo
Please read this Statement carefully as this sets out the basis on which any personal data we collect from you, or that you provide to us, will be processed by us.

In general, you may visit our website without identifying yourself or revealing any personal information. Money Plus collects domain information from your visit to customize and improve your experience on our website.
This website may collect certain information from your visit, including the date and time of your access, the pages you have accessed, the name of the Internet Service Provider and the Internet Protocol (IP) address by which you are accessing the internet, and the internet address from which you linked to our site, if applicable. We use this information to better understand how our website is being used so that we can improve its performance.
Some portions of the website may request that you give us information about yourself, from which we are able to identify you e.g. your name, email or other address. Some ways in which we may collect information from you are:
- Subscription to newsletters or other Money Plus content-related correspondence
- Event registrations for seminars, conferences etc.
- White paper or other downloads
Use of the information we gather
When we collect information about you, we intend to tell you why we are asking for the information and what we intend to do with it. You will have the option of not providing the information, in which case you may still be able to access other parts of this website, although you may not be able to access certain services. In certain areas of our website, we may, where appropriate, enable you to ‘opt in’ to certain uses of your information e.g. personal data and direct marketing. Data will not be held for longer than is necessary and general client details will be held while you are a client.
The information we collect about you or your computer is used to run the website, respond to your requests or process any transactions you have requested. It may also be used to verify your identity, send you information or contact you in relation to a Money Plus product or service that you are using or that we believe may be of interest to you after you have chosen to ‘opt in’.
Sharing information with third parties
In certain instances, we may make your information available to third parties with whom we have a relationship where that third party is providing services on our behalf. We will only provide those third parties with information that is necessary for them to perform the services and we take measures to protect your information.
The information we collect may be used, stored and processed in the EU, UK or in any country in which Money Plus does business. By providing the information via the website, you are consenting to the transfer of the information outside of your country to any country (including countries which may not have adequate levels of protection).
Money Plus may disclose information it has collected about you on the website if required to do so by law or when necessary to protect the rights of Money Plus or its employees.
It is our intent to strictly protect the security of your personal information; honour your choice for its intended use; and carefully protect your data from loss, misuse, unauthorised access or disclosure, alteration or destruction. We have taken appropriate steps to safeguard and secure information we collect online, including the use of encryption when collecting or transferring sensitive data such as bank details.
However, you should always take into consideration that the internet is an open forum and that data may flow across networks with little or no security measures, and therefore such information may be accessed by people other than those you intended to access it.
