Digital Cork respects your right to privacy, and will not collect or publish any personal information about you through this website without your clear permission. Any personal information which you volunteer will be treated with the highest standards of security and confidentiality, strictly in accordance with relevant regulations.
Collection and use of personal information
Digital Cork does not collect any personal data about you on this website, apart from information which you volunteer (for example by e-mailing us or by using our online survey). Any information which you provide in this way is not made available to any third parties, and is used by Digital Cork only in line with the purpose for which you provided it.
Collection and use of technical information
This website uses temporary “session” cookies which enable a visitor’s web browser to remember which pages on this website have already been visited.
A cookie is a file containing an identifier (a string of letters and numbers) that is sent by a web server to a web browser and is stored by the browser. The identifier is then sent back to the server each time the browser requests a page from the server.
Cookies may be either “persistent” cookies or “session” cookies: a persistent cookie will be stored by a web browser and will remain valid until its set expiry date, unless deleted by the user before the expiry date; a session cookie, on the other hand, will expire at the end of the user session, when the web browser is closed.
Cookies do not typically contain any information that personally identifies a user, but personal information that we store about you may be linked to the information stored in and obtained from cookies.
Cookies can be used by web servers to identify and track users as they navigate different pages on a website and identify users returning to a website.
Visitors can use this website with no loss of functionality if cookies are disabled from the user’s web browser. Technical details in connection with visits to this website are logged by our internet analytics provider for our statistical purposes. No information is collected that could be used by us to personally identify website visitors. The technical details logged are confined to the following items:
- the IP address of the visitor’s web server
- the top-level domain name used (for example .ie, .com, .org, .net)
- the previous website address from which the visitor reached us, including any search terms used.
- pages accessed and documents downloaded.
- the type of web browser and operating system used by the website visitor.
Digital Cork will make no attempt to identify individual visitors, or to associate the technical details listed above with any individual. It is the policy of Digital Cork never to disclose such technical information in respect of individual website visitors to any third party (apart from our analytics service provider, which records such data on our behalf and which is bound by confidentiality provisions in this regard), unless obliged to disclose such information by law.
The technical information will be used only by Digital Cork, and only for statistical and other administrative purposes. You should note that technical details, which we cannot associate with any identifiable individual, do not constitute “personal data” for the purposes of the Data Protection Acts.
