Irish Pension Information


1.1. These are the Terms and Conditions of Use (“Terms“) for When we say “Site” we mean the website, as well as any related apps, the tools on our website which can help you plan your pension and our social media content. When we say “Us” we mean the Irish Pension Information Ltd.

1.2. These Terms tell you:

  • How our Site works;
  • What you can do with the ‘content’ – the stuff that is available on our Site; 
  • What we can do with things you post; and 
  • Your rights and responsibilities

We’ve tried to keep these Terms as short as we can and simple to understand. Please do read them and look out for changes as the latest version always applies. By continuing to use our Site, you’ll be considered to have accepted these Terms. If you don’t follow these Terms we may stop you using the Site.

Our Site is provided to you free of charge for your own personal and non-commercial use only. It’s all about sharing Pension information including regularly updated guides, tools and services, together with our views on how to maximise your pension. After lots of our articles you’ll see a comments section where you can discuss the articles with other users.

The information on our Site shouldn’t be taken as any advice, representation, or arrangement by us – you’re responsible for making (or refraining from making) any specific investment or other decisions. If we mention companies on our Site, we usually do so because of their attractive offers. We don’t usually vet them on customer service or whether they may go bust. Because the impact of our Site information can vary based on your particular circumstances, you should always carry out your own research into the product or service that’s of interest to you. You’re responsible for the decisions you make and we’re not liable for anything that happens as a result of you relying on the information provided on the Site. You should always seek advice from a Qualified Financial Advisor prior to making decisions around your pension so the advice offered is tailored to your particular needs and not the mass public. 

You will find the latest version of our privacy policy here. Our privacy policy is part of the terms and conditions of using our website so please read it in its entirety to see how we collect, use and protect your personal information.

5.1. This part of the Terms talks about how we use information provided by other websites or link through to them. We’re not responsible for their content or liable for anything that happens if you choose to use them. If you do buy products or services from another website, please first read its terms and conditions and privacy policy carefully. Remember: you’ll be bound by those terms and conditions and any personal information you give them will be used in line with their privacy policies, not ours.

5.2. Some of our Site links are ‘affiliate’ links, which take you directly or indirectly to a product provider and which may result in us receiving money if you click through to its site or buy a product or service from it. However, as our How this site is financed guide makes clear, our decision to include a link is never influenced by any money we could get.
