Posted November 21, 2018 08:15:56A new email service is being developed by the Irish government that will deliver the same type of information as an informed delivery service but with the added bonus of providing information on the recipients.
The service is called the Informa system, named after the email system used in the US.
It was developed by a consortium of companies including Echelon, the company that provides the Informas email service.
The idea is to use the same technology as the internet, and the Irish Government is currently reviewing the proposal for the new service.
“There is an opportunity to get more information out there, to give people more confidence that their information is secure and reliable,” said the minister for communications, Brendan Howlin.
“We will work with all stakeholders and the public to ensure that it’s a seamless transition for people who want to be informed.”
The service will be able to deliver the information by email or SMS, although it will also offer video, video conferencing and mobile applications.
“It’s a way to inform people about the services they are getting and what they’re going to get, rather than relying on a phone number and an email address,” said Echelons co-founder and CEO, David O’Neill.
The company said that more than 90 per cent of the information that it provides on its website is not subject to Irish laws, and that it can also be used to target individuals.
“If you’re a consumer who wants to get the latest news or a piece of advice about the products or services they need, they can do that by using the Informavo service,” said O’Neil.
“You don’t need a phone, you don’t have to use a bank account.
It’s totally automated.”
The company also said that it will not be able in any way to make payment to individuals.
It is not the first time the Irish authorities have developed a service for the internet to provide information about its citizens.
In September, the Irish Data Protection Commissioner announced that the country would be introducing a new data protection law, the Data Protection (Freedom of Information) Act, which aims to make information on Irish citizens subject to greater transparency.
It will see companies required to provide the Irish Minister with a request for information (RFI) before they can access citizens’ personal information, and then they will be required to comply with the law.
In October, the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) published a report which said that the Irish privacy laws had become less restrictive over time.
“The Irish Government has been working to reform the law and ensure that all citizens have access to information about their personal and private life, and we are delighted that we are now on the right track,” said Privacy Commissioner James Nolan.
The Information Commissioner has previously warned that privacy concerns were a factor in the introduction of the legislation.
