WebKart.Net applies the eight data protection principles (set out in the Irish Data Protection Commissioner’s, “Guidelines for contents and use of Privacy Statements for Websites”) to the manner in which it processes data throughout our operations. The principles offer a clear and unambiguous focus of the importance of affording personal information and data relating to clients and customers with the sensitivity, confidentiality and respect it deserves.
The eight principles are as follows:
1. Obtain and process information fairly.
2. Keep it only for one or more specified, explicit and lawful purposes.
3. Use and disclose it only in ways compatible with these purposes,
4. Keep it safe and secure.
5. Keep it accurate, complete and up-to-date.
6. Ensure that it is adequate, relevant and not excessive.
7. Retain it for no longer than is necessary for the purpose or purposes.

It is critically important that the information referred to above is obtained in a fair way, including;
explanation of the purpose for which it is processed; the identity of third parties to whom the data may be disclosed; the existence of a right of access to what personal information is stored and a right of access and a right of rectification. To satisfy that criteria, we clearly state the purpose for which the data is necessary and the use made of it; namely helping to process orders, e.g. credit card payments securely and facilitating customer activity on the site so that we may best address their interests and serve their needs.
