|Information Collection and Use|
|IRISHOP.com is the sole owner of the information collected on this site. We will not sell, share, or rent this information to others in ways different from what is disclosed in this statement. IRISHOP.com collects information from our users at several different points on our website.
|We request information from the user on our order form. Here a user must provide contact information (like name and shipping address) and financial information (like credit card number, expiration date). This information is used for billing purposes and to fill customer's orders. If we have trouble processing an order, this contact information is used to get in touch with the user.
|A cookie is a piece of data stored on the user's hard drive containing information about the user. Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information while on our site. Once the user closes their browser, the cookie simply terminates. For instance, by setting a cookie on our site, the user would be able to interrupt a Shopping visit and still return later, and continue shopping and the shopping cart will remember previously selected items for that session, thereby saving time while on our site.
If a user rejects the cookie, they may still view our site. The only drawback to this is that the user will be unable to add items to their shopping cart for later purchase.
Third-Party Web Beacons: We use third-party web beacons from Yahoo! to help analyze where visitors go and what they do while visiting our website. Yahoo! may also use anonymous information about your visits to this and other websites in order to improve its products and services and provide advertisements about goods and services of interest to you. If you would like more information about this practice and to know your choices about not having this information used by Yahoo!, click here.
|We use IP addresses to analyze trends, administer the site, track user's movement, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information.
|We do not share information with any other site or company. We use outside shipping companies and vendors to ship orders, and a credit card processing company to bill users for goods and services. These companies do not retain, share, store or use personally identifiable information for any secondary purposes. We partner with another party to provide specific services. When the user signs up for these services, we will share names, or other contact information that is necessary for the third party to provide these services. These parties are not allowed to use personally identifiable information except for the purpose of providing these services.
|This web site is linked to from many other sites. Please be aware that IRISHOP.com is not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our 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 a user wishes to subscribe to our occasional newsletters, we ask for contact information such as name and email address. Newsletter subscribers will occasionally receive information on products, services, and special deals. Out of respect for the privacy of our users we present the option not to receive these types of communications. Subscribers may choose to unsubscribe at any time. Please see our choice and opt-out below.
|From time-to-time our site requests information from users via competitions. Participation in these competitions is completely voluntary and the user therefore has a choice whether or not to disclose this information. Information requested may include contact information such as email address and choice of prize if successful. This information will be used to notify the winners and award prizes.
|This website takes every precaution to protect our users' information. When users submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and off-line. When our order form asks users to enter sensitive information (such as credit card number), that information is encrypted and is protected with the best encryption software in the industry - SSL, which is handled for us by PayPal, one of the largest and most trusted payment providers in the world.
While on a secure page, such as our order form, the lock icon on the bottom of Web browsers such as Netscape Navigator and Microsoft Internet Explorer becomes locked, as opposed to un-locked, or open, when you are just 'surfing'. While we use SSL encryption to protect sensitive information online, we also do everything in our power to protect user-information off-line. All of our users' information, not just the sensitive information mentioned above, is restricted in our offices. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, our billing clerk or a customer service representative) are granted access to personally identifiable information. Every quarter, as well as any time new policies are added, our employees are notified and/or reminded about the importance we place on privacy, and what they can do to ensure our customers' information is protected. Finally, the servers that we store personally identifiable information on are kept in a secure environment. If you have any questions about the security at our website, you can send an email to email@example.com
|Newsletter subscribers are given the opportunity to 'opt-out' of receiving any further mailings from us. Our policy is not to send any unsolicited email whatsoever. Users who no longer wish to receive our newsletter may opt-out of receiving it by replying to unsubscribe in the subject line in the email or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
