Your rights in respect of your information

You have several rights in relation to your personal data. In each case, these rights are subject to restrictions as laid down by law. The following is a summary of your rights:

  • Right to request access to your personal data (commonly known as a "data subject access request"). This enables you to receive a copy of the personal data we hold about you and to check that we are lawfully processing it;
  • Right to request rectification of the personal data that we hold about you. This enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate information we hold about you corrected;
  • Right to request erasure of your personal data. This enables you to ask us to delete or remove personal data where there is no good reason for us continuing to process it. You also have the right to ask us to delete or remove your personal data where you have exercised your right to object to processing (see below);
  • Right to request the restriction of processing of your personal data. This enables you to ask us to suspend the processing of personal data about you, for example if you want us to establish its accuracy or the reason for processing it;
  • Right to object to processing of your personal data where we are relying on a legitimate interest and there is something about your particular situation which makes you want to object to processing on this ground. This includes any profiling of your personal data which is done on the basis of our legitimate interests. You also have the right to object where we are processing your personal data for direct marketing purposes;
  • Right to data portability enables you to request the transfer of your personal data to another party;
  • Right to withdraw your consent to our processing of your information at any time. This will not affect the lawfulness of processing based on consent before its withdrawal; and
  • Right to lodge a complaint with the Office of the Data Protection Commissioner or with the data protection authority in the Member State of your residence, place of work or place of an alleged infringement, if you consider that the processing of your personal data infringes the GDPR.

If you wish to exercise any of these rights, please contact us (see Contact Details below). We will respond to your request within one month. That period may be extended by two further months where necessary, taking into account the complexity and number of requests. We will inform you of any such extension within one month of receipt of your request. We may request proof of identification to verify your request. We have the right to refuse your request where there is a basis to do so in law, or if it is manifestly unfounded or excessive, or to the extent necessary for important objectives of public interest


In general, we will not transfer your personal data outside of the EEA. Occasionally, in order to provide our Services outside the EEA and deliver a consignment we have to transfer limited personal data outside of the EEA. We will only do this where, and to the extent that, the transfer is necessary for the performance of our contract with you, or for the performance of a contract which was concluded in your interest e.g. to engage another delivery company to finalise delivery.

Our basis for requiring information

If DPD Ireland cannot process the necessary personal information, it may be difficult, impossible, or unlawful for us to give you advice on or provide you with our services.

If DPD Ireland ask you to provide your personal information, we will explain whether it is a legal or contractual requirement that we use such information and if you do not wish to give your information to us, DPD will explain the consequences based on the specific information concerned.
