In order to provide you with products and services, we will need to collect and use information about you. We are committed to protecting your privacy and managing your personal information in a secure environment. The website has been developed with your rights and needs in mind and will be maintained according to strict guidelines and policies. In particular, these include Tourism Ireland 's Privacy Principles which have been designed to ensure that personal information is protected and to specify the guidelines for the collection, use and disclosure of that personal information.
We will keep you informed about the sort of personal information we hold and for what purposes, and how we collect, use and disclose this information. You can request to access and correct any information Tourism Ireland collects about you at any time and advise us of any corrections you wish to make.
When you provide Tourism Ireland with your personal information, this will be held strictly in accordance with this Privacy Statement. We will inform you when and for what purpose we will be collecting personal information and how the information will be used, and will clearly indicate what information is necessary to access Tourism Ireland products and services including transactions. In addition we may offer you the opportunity to provide further information so that Tourism Ireland can provide you improved and personalised services. Provision of this additional information is completely at your discretion, and you may decide to not provide it to us.
We will not ask for and collect any sensitive information about you (such as gender, marital status, age, race or health information) unless it is necessary to meet legal, public interest or statistical requirements related to and required to complete the transaction you have requested. Provision of this information (except where it is a legal requirement) is completely at your discretion, and you may decide to not provide it to us.
If your information is no longer needed by us, we will take all reasonable steps to permanently remove personal identification from the information collected about you.
Tourism Ireland may automatically record other information as well. This information is used to improve the structure and performance of Tourism Ireland 's website in order to provide you with better services. Whenever a page is requested from our web server, Tourism Ireland records the time, date and URL of the request, along with information on the browser software that is being used.
We will not use your personal information or data for a purpose other than the purposes for which you supplied it, and will not disclose it to any other person or organisation unless:
Tourism Ireland will take reasonable steps to make sure that the personal information it collects, uses or discloses is accurate, complete and up to date.
Tourism Ireland will take reasonable steps to protect the personal information it holds from misuse and loss and from unauthorised access, modification or disclosure.
Tourism Ireland will take reasonable steps to destroy or permanently “de-identify” personal information if it is no longer needed for any purpose.
Where Tourism Ireland holds personal information about you, it will provide you with access to the information on request, in a form or manner suitable to your reasonable needs, except to the extent that:
We will take reasonable steps to ensure that all information we collect, use or disclose is accurate, complete, up-to-date and stored in a secure environment accessed only by authorised persons. Transmissions sent to or from Tourism Ireland are routinely monitored for quality control and systems administration.
Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. While we strive to protect your personal information from misuse, loss and unauthorised access, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you transmit to us or receive from our online products or services. These activities are conducted at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, we make our best effort to ensure its security.
