Links to other websites
Any other web sites linked to from this website may have their own Privacy Policies and are not under our administration.
These sites may send you cookies and collect data and personal information. We are not responsible for the actions, content or the privacy policies of those websites to which our website may link.
When you actively sign up to receive newsletters from us, either at either at Máire Ní Chathasaigh and Chris Newman, The Casey Sisters, or Heartstring Quartet concerts, or through this website, you supply the following information about yourself:
First name, surname, email address, physical address and postcode.
Information is also collected when you make a purchase from the Old Bridge Music website co-owned by Máire Ní Chathasaigh and Chris Newman, such as the product(s) you purchased, the time of order, delivery address details and your payment method. The Old Bridge Music site collects this information in a secure encrypted script and will pass this on to our payment providers; we do not store any payment card numbers or details on our site or its servers, nor is this information visible to us in any way; i.e., when buying CDs or books through our Old Bridge Music website, payment is made via Paypal and we do not see any financial details relevant to that transaction.
You may of course change your mind at any time and request that your data be deleted from our database. You may in addition request an export of the data that is held about you by emailing us.

We may use the information to improve our products and services. All information is kept on password-protected devices and is accessible only by us (Máire Ní Chathasaigh and Chris Newman) and authorized staff. Any information held on servers we use to host our websites is held on fully GDPR compliant systems with encrypted password-protection in place.
2) External auditing
We may include information about our customers held on record for auditing by our appointed accountants and for submission for any HMRC auditing.
No information is shared with other agencies, except as may be required in law.·
