Control over Your Information

We want you to be in control of your information, so we provide you with the following tools.

Access and Updates – We strive to let you access and update most of the personal information that we have about you. You can access and update most of your basic account information right on our Desktop or Mobile website, or through our app. If you wish to delete information or your account, you can do so by emailing us at info@mocks.ie. We will notify you of your request as soon as we can and also when this has been processed. Because your privacy is important to us, we may ask you to verify your identity or provide additional information before we let you access or update your personal information. We will try to update and access your information for free, but if it would require a disproportionate effort on our part, we may charge a fee. We will, of course, disclose the fee before we comply with your request.
