Privacy Policy

Our Commitment To Privacy

Your privacy is important to us. To better protect your privacy we provide this notice explaining our online information practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used. To make this notice easy to find, we make it available from every page where personally identifiable information may be requested.


The Information We Collect:

This notice applies to all information collected or submitted on PoliticalIrish.com. The types of personal information collected at these pages are:

Email address
IP information


This technical information will be used only by PoliticalIrish.com and only for statistical purposes, other administrative purposes, and for the purposes outlined in our Cookie Policy.

In common with many sites we use outside providers for web-site statistics. Please note that to provide statistics these outside providers use visitors' IP addresses but do not have access to any PoliticalIrish.com usernames or email address and therefore cannot match a user to an IP address for the purpose of identification. This data may be stored by these providers outside of the EU for processing. The providers we use are Google Analytics and Big-Boards.com. You can find further information on these at the following locations:

The Way We Use Information:


We do not share this information with outside parties except to the extent necessary when the law requires us to comply.

We use email addresses to answer the emails we receive, to verify upon registration, to send opt-in only contacts such as thread subscriptions and PM notifications. Such addresses are not used for any other purpose and are not shared with outside parties.

We use non-identifying and aggregate information to better design our website and to share with advertisers. For example, we may tell an advertiser that X number of individuals visited a certain area on our website, or that Y number of men and Z number of women filled out our registration form, but we would not disclose anything that could be used to identify those individuals.

Finally, we never use or share the personally identifiable information provided to us online in ways unrelated to the ones described above without also providing you an opportunity to opt-out or otherwise prohibit such unrelated uses.

Our Commitment To Data Security

To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, we have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online.

Retention of Personal Information

Please note that any information that you provide will only be held for as long as necessary for the purpose for which it was provided.

Cookies and tracking

Like many websites, Politicalirish.com may use "cookies" to enable us to personalise your visits to this website, simplify the signing-in procedure, keep track of your preferences and to track the usage of this website. Cookies are small pieces of information that are stored in the hard drive of your computer by your browser.
Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but, if you wish, you can change the settings on your browser to reject all cookies, to be notified when a cookie is sent or to accept all cookies. Your browser's help screen or manual will tell you how to do this.
