As Ireland’s leading and fastest growing provider of one-stop-shop accountancy and compliance services for independent professional contractors, Icon Accounting Group recognise the importance of looking after their client’s data.

Icon Accounting Group were keen to implement an affordable and easy-to-use solution which provided their clients with the ability to facilitate their GDPR data privacy rights. To address this, Icon Accounting Group approached Dataships to install their Data Access Gateway widget on the Group’s website. The Dataships widget seamlessly made customer data from Icon Accounting’s bespoke client portal available to their clients and provided their clients with the ability to access, edit, download and delete their personal data.After several months of using the Dataships Data Access Gateway widget, Icon Accounting Group requested Dataships to perform a GDPR audit on the websites across the Group. Very quickly, Dataships was able to identify areas that needed attention and Icon requested to upgrade to the Dataships Privacy Centre and implement this solution across Icon Accounting Group’s websites to address their GDPR compliance obligations.

“We believe that taking responsibility for what we do with our client’s personal data and demonstrating the steps we’ve taken to protect their rights not only results in better data privacy compliance, but also offers the business a competitive edge. Dataships have provided us with an easy-to-use and affordable solution that gives us peace of mind that we are adhering to our GDPR obligations. On top of that, they are very easy to deal with and are always available when we have any GDPR related issues and queries”
