This information may also be used in aggregate form to conduct web site trend and performance analysis.

Other Sites & Social Media

Occasionally we include links to third parties outside the RBK Network on the site. Where we provide a link it does not mean that we endorse or approve that site’s policy towards visitor privacy and we encourage you to read the privacy notices appearing on those sites or services. 

Our websites, applications or services may enable you to share information with social media sites, or use social media sites to create your account or to connect your social media account. Those social media sites may automatically provide us with access to certain personal information retained by them about you (for example any content you have viewed). You should be able to manage your privacy settings from within your own third party social media account(s) to manage what personal information you enable us to access from that account.

Data Analytics

We may use information generated and stored during your use of our services for our legitimate business interests to enable us to give you the best service and/or solutions and the best experience. These purposes include to:

  • deliver advertising, marketing (including in-product messaging) or information to you which may be useful to you, based on your use of services; 
  • carry out research and development to improve our services, products and applications; 
  • develop and provide new and existing functionality and services (including statistical analysis, benchmarking and forecasting services); and 
  • provide you with location based services (for example location relevant content) where we collect geo-location data to provide a relevant experience.

Whenever we use your information for our legitimate interests, we will ensure that your information is processed on a pseudonymised basis and displayed at aggregated levels, which will not be linked back to you or to any living individual. 

You have the right to object to processing based on our legitimate interests, and if you wish to do so, please contact us at privacy@rbk.ie to discuss this further. If you object, this may affect our ability to provide certain services and/or solutions for your benefit.

Unfortunately, the transmission of information by means of the internet, including through email, is not completely secure.
