Statement of Privacy

The content of this privacy statement can be found in full here in PDF format.

This statement of privacy complies with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) which regulates how an organization treats and/or uses the personal data of EU citizens, including organisations located outside of the EU. The GDPR replaces the national data protection laws which were in place prior to May 2018 with a single set of rules, directly enforceable in each EU member state. The GDPR’s focus is the protection, collection and management of personal data, (i.e. data about individuals) and it applies to all businesses who hold or otherwise process personal data (including sole traders) of people in EU Member States.

GDPR gives people more rights over how companies collect and use personal data. The act specifically gives people the right to access, correct, delete, and restrict processing of personal data, and lays out strict guidelines about consent for data usage.

Dyspraxia/DCD Ireland is committed to protecting your privacy. This Statement of Privacy applies to The Dyspraxia/DCD website ( and governs data collection and usage. By using the Dyspraxia/DCD website, you consent to the data practices described in this statement.
