COOKIES POLICY

This cookies policy relates to our website at www.ilovelimerick.ie and/or any of our other related online or mobile products, content and services, such as widgets and applications (collectively, the “Site”).

This cookies policy explains our limited use of cookies in connection with the Site, and forms part of our privacy policy. By using the Site, you consent to such use in accordance with this cookies policy.

About 

Cookies are widely used to allow online and mobile sites to function efficiently. A “cookie” is a small text file that (depending on your browser settings) is deposited on the hard drive of your computer, mobile phone, tablet or another smart device when you visit a site. The cookie may be sent back to that site when you visit again, and may then be used by the server to identify and track your use of the site.

Our own

The Site uses certain functional, non-persistent cookies to identify you as you use the Site. This helps I Love Limerick and our third-party service providers to provide you with a good experience when you browse the Site and also allows I Love Limerick and our third-party service providers to improve our site.

Those cookies do not contain any information that, in itself, personally identifies you and do not provide us with access to the rest of your device. We may, however, associate the information contained in cookies with personal information that you have provided to us separately.

We might introduce further types of cookie and/or similar technology from time to time to improve your experience of the Site. If we do so, we shall provide details of any such usage on the Site.

If you would like any further information on the cookies that we use, you can contact us at [email protected]

Third-party 

Please note that other sites that may be accessible via the Site may also use cookies, over which we have no control. You should check the privacy and cookies policies posted on the relevant third-party sites for further information on such cookies (including details of how to reject or delete such cookies).

Google Analytics

The Site uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses cookies to help us analyse how users use the Site. The information generated by Google’s cookies about your use of the Site (including your IP address) is anonymous and will be sent to Google and held on Google’s servers in the USA in accordance with Google’s privacy policy (available at https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en&gl=ie). Please note that Google may also transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on Google’s behalf. We understand that Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google.

Social media plug-ins

On certain pages of the Site we may implement so-called “social media” plug-ins, in particular Facebook’s “like” button, Google’s “+1” button and Twitter’s Twitter buttons. When you visit a page that displays one or more of such buttons, your browser will establish a direct connection to the relevant social media server and load the button from there. At the same time the provider of the social media service will know that the relevant page on the Site has been visited.

We have no influence on the data that any such social media provider collects on the basis of the buttons. According to the available information, however, if you do not click on the respective buttons, none of your personal data will be collected and stored unless you have logged onto to your social media account. In that case, certain user data (including your IP address at the time) may be collected and linked to the account information already present at the social media service. If you wish to prevent this, please log out of your social media accounts before visiting the Site.

In addition, clicking a button may also lead to a collection of certain data, such as your IP address. Social media providers such as Facebook, Google or Twitter may set cookies as well, unless you have disabled the acceptance and storage of cookies in your browser settings (see further below).

We receive no information from social media providers about which social media buttons you may personally have clicked or seen on the Site. If at all, we may receive a summarised, non-personalised statistical report on the use of the buttons.

Rejecting and deleting cookies

If you object to the use of cookies on the Site, most browsers can be configured to alert you to their use or to enable you to reject browser-based cookies. Third parties may use certain special types of cookies (such as flash cookies) that cannot be disabled by configuring browsers, although other methods of preventing or managing such cookies may be available to you (such as via the relevant third-party settings panel). You can also delete cookies already stored on your device.

To learn how to reject or delete cookies, we recommend that you consult the “Help” function of your internet browser or, for a smart device, your device manual. Further information on rejection and deletion of cookies is provided on www.aboutcookies.org. For further information on managing behavioural advertising, please visit http://www.youronlinechoices.com/ie/

If, however, you decide to disable or delete any cookies, some parts or features of the Site (especially interactive features) may not work properly. Disabling or deleting them may also affect your ability to use other online or mobile sites.

Changes to this policy

We may at any time update or otherwise modify this cookies policy. We shall notify you of any changes to our policy by posting the modified policy on the Site. By then continuing to use the Site, you will be bound by the modified policy.
