The new DPC website is currently under construction. Our latest guidance in relation to GDPR, which comes into effect on 25th May, 2018, can be found at gdprandyou.ie and via pages on this website starting with "NEW" as per the navigation pane on the left. All other material on this site relates to the previous legislative regime under the Data Protection Acts 1988-2003 ("the Acts"). While the Acts may continue to apply in some circumstances, as of 25th May, 2018 the GDPR is the primary piece of legislation governing data protection.

The Office is now also providing a new 0761 number for callers to use. The 0761 prefix is part of a Government initiative to reduce call costs for both public bodies and customers. Call costs to 0761 numbers vary. Your telephone service provider should be able to give you further details on the costs that apply for your telephone package.

Please note that the rates charged for the use of 1890 (LoCall) numbers may vary among different service providers. It is recommended that you only ring these numbers using a non-bundled* landline as calls made using mobiles or bundled* landlines may be expensive.

* On a 'non-bundled' landline you are charged individually per call.
* On a 'bundled' landline you pay for a package which typically includes free local and/or national calls.
