Dogpatch Labs is a start-up Hub located in the heart of Dublin’s Digital Docklands, at the following address; The CHQ Building, Custom House Quay, Dublin 1, Ireland.
The assigned Data Protection Officer can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org
Personal data is data that relates to an identified or identifiable person. If data does not permit us or another party to identify a person, directly or indirectly, then it is not personal data. The law does not require, and it is not Dogpatch Labs practice, to acquire extra, unnecessary information solely for the purpose of identifying persons.
Processing, refers to actions that can be done with personal data: collecting, storing, analysing, communicating, et cetera. This includes processing completed with or without computers.
For purposes of this policy, the controller is Dogpatch Labs.
A processor is any vendor or service provider who processes personal data on behalf of Dogpatch Labs.
Consent is a clear, unambiguous action by a person that they agree to a specific processing. In order for this consent to be valid, the person consenting has to understand the purpose, nature, and conditions of the processing, including, for example, if Dogpatch Labs will be getting outside help to process personal data.
GDPR means the EU General Data Protection Regulation 2016/679 (as amended and replaced from time to time)
Sensitive Data means any personal data revealing racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, or trade union membership, genetic data, biometric data, data concerning health or data concerning a natural person’s sex life or sexual orientation.
GDPR Data Protection Principles
Dogpatch Labs commits itself to operating on the basis of the following privacy principles:
1. Lawfulness, Fairness, and Transparency
1.a. Beyond upholding your legal rights, our aim is to provide our services fairly to you, and to be transparent in the way we process your data.
1.b. We will always provide you with a clear statement of the purpose behind a data processing.
1.c. We will always provide you with a clear statement on how that processing is compatible with your legal rights, also known as the legal or lawful basis for processing.
1.c.i. One common example of a lawful basis is where processing is necessary for a service or contract that you have requested. Another common basis is where we have a legal obligation to process your data, such as to protect against fraud. Your consent can sometimes also be a legal basis for processing.
2. Purpose limitation
2.a. We aim to collect your data only for specific, limited purposes that we will specify to you in advance as clearly as we can.
2.b. Moreover, in the event we ever rearrange how we do things, we aim never to process your data in a way that is incompatible with the original purposes.
3. Data Minimisation
We try only to process the personal data that we really need –no more and no less.
We will try to correct or erase, depending on what is appropriate in the context, personal data that are inaccurate.
5. Storage Limitation
No one needs or wants their data floating around for eternity, so we try to delete data when we no longer need them.
6. Integrity and Confidentiality
We protect your data with the appropriate technologies and business practices. We guard against unauthorised or unlawful processing, and against accidental loss, destruction, or damage to your data.
7.a. We aim to document, as necessary and appropriate, the things we do for your protection.
7.b. You also have a number of rights that you can use to check up on us and hold us accountable.
7.c. Finally, in addition to holding ourselves accountable, we also demand that our processors commit themselves to the protections you deserve. We aim to be transparent in our choice of processors so that you can hold them accountable too.
Rights to Object or Restrict Processing
You enjoy certain rights and privileges too that are important enough that they get their own section. We’d especially like to draw your attention to your rights to object and to restrict processing.
Right to Object
European law provides you with a right to object. This means you have an absolute right to tell us to stop processing your personal data for direct marketing.
Where the processing is for purposes other than direct marketing, you should explain to us what it is you’re objecting to and why it is that you’re objecting. Dogpatch Labs is then entitled at law to consider whether any legitimate grounds override those objections. If not, then Dogpatch Labs will cease that processing right away.
Right to Restrict Processing
European law also provides you with a right called restriction of processing. If objection is like a stop button, then restriction of processing is the pause button: It lets you put a pause on all or certain types of processing.
Right to Withdraw Consent
For any processing that is based on your consent, you can withdraw that consent at any time. This means that we will stop that processing, unless there is another basis to continue processing, such as a legal obligation. Withdrawing consent does not affect any processing that has already taken place.
Further Rights to Hold Us Accountable
You have a number of legal rights that will help you hold us accountable and abide by the above privacy principles. Here’s a listing of rights that you should keep in mind:
1. Rights to Information and Access
2. Right to correct inaccurate data, or supplement incomplete data
3. Right to erasure
4. Right to restriction of processing
5. Right to data portability
6. Right to object
7. Right to avoid automated individual decision-making
Rights to Information and Access
1. “Who?” You have a legal right to know who we are, who our representative(s) is/are, who our data protection officer is, and contact information for each.
2. “Who else??” You have the right to know who, if anyone will receive your information from us. If we didn’t get your personal data from you, we will tell you where we got it.
3. “What are you doing?” You have the right to know in advance the purposes behind our data processing. Moreover, you have the legal right to know in advance the legal basis for our processing. We will always tell you where we processing is necessary for our legitimate interests.
4. “Why should I?” We will always tell you whether providing your personal data is voluntary or obligatory, and what would be the result if you choose not to provide your personal data. In particular, we will tell you if you are legally or contractually required to provide us with personal data.
5. “Where?” Not all jurisdictions or countries provide the same legal protections for personal data and privacy as the European Union and its Member States. Therefore, you have the right to know if your data is being sent outside the EU and if so, what appropriate safeguards have been put in place especially to protect your data protection and privacy rights. Whenever this arises, we’ll tell you how to get a copy of the protections in place for your personal data.
You have a right to receive other information too. We’ll always provide the following specifics to you at the appropriate, relevant time, but here’s a list of what you have a right to receive:
6. “How long?” You have a right to know how long we’ll keep your data. If we can’t state a hard number, then we’ll tell you the criteria that will determine when we will delete your personal data.
7. “What does Dogpatch Labs have?” You have a right to hear from us what it is that we have about you. If you see anything that needs correction or that you’d like deleted, please contact us through our data protection officer at email@example.com
8. “I don’t consent.” If the basis for our processing is your consent, you have a right to withdraw that consent at any time. Withdrawing consent does not affect any processing we’ve already undertaken. It also doesn’t have any effect where processing is not based on your consent.
9. “I’m still unhappy…” If you think your rights have been violated, you have a right to file a complaint with Ireland’s Data Protection Commissioner.
Right to correct inaccurate data, or supplement incomplete data
We will take every reasonable step to ensure the personal data we process are accurate and up to date. You have the right to inform us of an inaccuracy in data that we process and expect that we will correct it without undue delay. Likewise, if you find that the data we’re processing is incomplete considering the purposes of the processing, you have to right to submit supplementary information. Depending on the circumstances, we might have to ask for some verification of your identity. We’ll do our best to keep those questions to a minimum and to avoid asking for new personal data we don’t already have.
Right to Erasure
In many cases, you have the right to have your personal data deleted. For more information, email our data protection officer at firstname.lastname@example.org
Right to Data Portability
We understand that sometimes you’ll need to take your data with you. At your request, we’ll provide you with a transferable copy of your data or send it directly (if possible) to your designated recipient. To make this request, please get in touch with the data protection officer at email@example.com
[NB: This only applies where the lawful basis was either consent or performance of a contract and processing was automated]
Right to Avoid Automated Individual Decision-Making
At Dogpatch Labs, all decisions that could affect your rights are human-made! While we use computers to help us in our work, all decisions are made by real people.
Exercising Your Rights
The easiest way for you to exercise the rights above is to contact our data protection officer (DPO) directly via email. Let our DPO know, if possible, what it is that you’re looking for, and what it is that you’d like us to do. If you have multiple requests, please do make sure you state them all clearly so we can act on them all.
We train and instruct all our employees to identify and appropriately escalate what appear to be subject requests based on the above rights. Employees should usually escalate requests to their managers, who will be in touch with the DPO. The DPO may or may not require the assistance of an outside lawyer.
Sources of Information
We process the following information:
– Information you give us
– Information your computer shares with us
– Information from third party sources

Information other parties give us
Sometimes we receive information about you from other parties. We process personal data received from those parties by the same rules and principles as personal data that you give us directly. Moreover, we will always tell you who gave us your information and their contact information.

In order to provide the services and experiences that we offer, we rely on a little help from our partners to process your information, such as payments, communication and working space management platform. We will always tell you who those partners are for your specific situation, and what it is that they do. We will also always tell you whether or not they have any access to your personal data, or if they only handle your data in its encrypted form. Our contracts with these third parties require them to maintain the confidentiality of the personal information we provide to them, only act on our behalf and under our instructions, and not use information for purposes other than the product or service they’re providing to us or on our behalf.
