WHAT INFORMATION DO WE COLLECT?
We collect limited information when you browse the site
When you visit the Site we collect log data, for example: the type of browser and operating system you are using, the address of the external or internal page that referred you, your IP address and pages on the site that you visit in association with your IP address. This information is recorded even if you do not have a Discussion Forum account, or even when you are logged out of your account. We mostly use this information to diagnose issues with the site. We only retain it for three days.
We Collect Information Using Cookies
Advertising pays our bills so we use a lot of cookies. You should know how cookies work. You should know what cookies we use. You should support cookie reform efforts if you choose.
We collect information when you use our Discussion Forum
We Collect Information When You Suggest A Link
When you use our form to suggest a link, we request (1) a title for the item you’re suggesting; (2) an URL of the suggested website; and (3) a description of the suggested site. We use this information to assess your suggestion. We also ask for your name, email and your URL. These fields are optional and we use them to give you appropriate credit. If you ask to remain anonymous, we will not publish your name in association with your suggestion, should we choose to use it. We will never spam your email. We maintain this information indefinitely and use it to evaluate submissions quickly.
We Collect Information When You Sign up
If you email us or send other communications to us directly, we will retain your email or address and correspondence so that we may respond to your request. We retain this information indefinitely so that we have a history of our past communications.
We DO NOT Collect Information when You Use the Derrydemocrats.org Store
WHO DO WE SHARE YOUR INFORMATION WITH?
It is generally our policy not to share or sell your personally identifiable information with any third party. We may, however, share information under the following circumstances:
If we receive your informed consent;
If it is necessary for a third party provider to perform tasks on our behalf (as described in this policy);
If we believe doing so is reasonably necessary to comply with a law, regulation, or valid legal process. If we are going to release your information, we will do our best to provide you with notice in advance, if we have a means to contact you, unless we are prohibited by court order from doing so; or
LINKS TO OTHER SITES
It should go without saying, but we’ll say it anyway: this website contains links to other sites that are not owned or controlled by us. Please be aware that we are not responsible for the privacy practices of other sites, unless we have specified them in this document.
We have adopted commercially reasonable technical, physical and administrative procedures to protect the confidentiality of the information that we collect on our site. However, the Internet is not a vault and data can be lost.
CHANGES TO THIS POLICY
We use a lot of cookies on this site. Online publishing is primarily supported by advertising and so is Derrydemocrats.org. Until there’s a better way, we’re stuck with cookies, all of us. What we can do, however, is inform you about the cookies that we use and how you can opt-out from using them, if you choose. Just remember, cookies power the advertising and the advertising pays for the Site.
