We understand that you may be concerned about privacy issues that surround the use of the Internet and we are committed to maintaining your confidence and trust.
General Information Automatically Collected and Stored:
Like most web sites you enter, MyIrishAncestry automatically gathers certain usage information like the numbers and frequency of visitors to our Web Site. Our system automatically stores your computer's Internet Protocol (IP) address (this is not your email address); the domain from which you access the Internet (e.g. "eircom.net" or "oceanfree.net"); the Internet address of the web site, if any, from which you came to our site; the date and time you arrived at our site and how long you spent on the site; and which pages you visited.
We only use such data in the aggregate. This collective data helps us determine how much our visitors use certain parts of the site, so we can improve our site to assure that it is as appealing as we can make it for as many of you as possible. We also may provide aggregated statistical "ratings" information, never information about you personally, to third parties for the purpose of reporting the sites success rate.
This Web site contains links to other sites. Please be aware that we are not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage you to be aware when you leave our web site and to read the privacy statements of each and every web site that collects personally identifiable information. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by this web site.
If we decide to change our privacy statement for our web site, we will post those changes here so that you will always know what information we gather, how we might use that information, and whether we will disclose it to anyone.
Though we make every effort to preserve your privacy, we may need to disclose personal information when required by law wherein we have a good-faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with a current judicial proceeding, a court order or legal process served on our web site.
