Who we are?

Go Online was established in 2018, with the locality of Waterford City.

Under the GDPR and the Data Protection Acts, Go Online is responsible for managing account holders data as a data controller.

What Data do we Collect?

The data we collect ranges from personal details such as your name and phone number, to card details. These card details are outsourced directly to PayPal or Stripe and we do not have access to these details. They are held in a high-security server and we hold no responsibility to card data leaks, as these are managed by their respective data controller. Personal data is stored on our servers but these are encrypted servers and are completely secure.


This data will only be collected if the customer has completed account creation or have purchased an order. This data can be deleted, viewed or edited at any time by sending us an email.

What is the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)?

The General Data Protection Regulation (‘GDPR’) applies from 25 May 2018 and significantly changes data protection law in Europe, strengthening the rights of individuals and increasing the obligations on organisations. The GDPR is designed to give individuals more control over their personal data. (A copy of the GDPR is available here).

The key principles under the GDPR are lawfulness, fairness and transparency; purpose limitation; data minimisation; accuracy; storage limitation; integrity and confidentiality, and accountability (Article 5 of the GDPR).

Under GDPR data subjects have increased rights. Guidance on these rights is available here.

The data subject rights are:

  1. The right to be informed (Articles 12 – 14 of the GDPR);
  2. The right to access information (Article 15 of the GDPR);
  3. The right to rectification (Articles 16 & 19 of the GDPR);
  4. The right to erasure (Articles 17 & 19 of the GDPR);
  5. The right to data portability (Article 20 of the GDPR);
  6. The right to object to processing of personal data (Article 21 of the GDPR);
  7. The right of restriction (Article 18 of the GDPR) and,
  8. Rights in relation to automated decision making, including profiling (Article 22 of the GDPR).

Where personal data is kept by Go Online for the performance of its functions, the rights of data subjects and the obligations of the Commission, as a data controller, provided for in Articles 12 to 22 and 34 (which relates to communicating personal data breaches to data subjects) and in Article 5, GDPR (in so far as any of its provisions correspond to the rights and obligations in Articles 12 to 22) are restricted (Section 60(3)(c)(i), Data Protection Acts).
