The Information We Collect And How We Use It

When you visit the ShopWaterwaysIreland.org web sites, we may collect your IP address in order to diagnose problems or issues with our server and to improve the manner in which we sell to you, our customer. Your IP address is not used to identify you in any manner but helps us to gather broad demographic information.

The ShopWaterwaysIreland.org web site uses "cookies," which are small pieces of information that are stored by your browser on your computer's hard drive. Our cookies do not contain any personally identifying information, but enable us to provide a shopping cart and to store your order information between visits. If you've set your browser to reject cookies, you can still use our site, but will not be able to purchase items. We recommend that you leave them turned on

To request more information about an item, you must provide your e-mail address so that we may reply to your question by e-mail. To order from us you must set up an account. Setting up an account requires you to provide your email address and choose a password. We also ask for your name, shipping address, telephone number (your "Order Information"). This information is necessary for us to process your order, to notify you of your order status, and to fulfill orders. We do not provide any personal information such as your e-mail address or billing information to any third party.

Waterways Ireland has a formal arrangement with a secure third party site [Realex Payments] where you must enter your credit card number, billing address, and expiration date to secure payment. Realex Payments uses a secure server. The secure server layer (SSL) encrypts all information you input. The security of this procedure is such that Waterways Irelands are not given access to you credit card information. We are simply instructed by Realex Payments that the credit card has been authorized. Realex Payments are not permitted to use your information for any other purposes than to secure payment for you purchase from us.

You may from time to time choose not to use our third party secure site and may send us your credit card details directly. While we cannot be responsible for the manner in which you transmit this information, we can assure you that this information shall only be held in our secure and password protected accounts system. Access to this information shall be strictly limited to authorized personnel and shall not be transmitted or divulged to any third party.
