Information Collected by iSeek.ie

Each time you visit the Site, two general levels of information about your visit may be retained by iSeek.ie: (1) non-personal information and (2) personal information.

We use this information gathered from visitors to our websites in an aggregate form to get a better understanding of where our visitors come from and to help us better design and organize our website. The Site uses “cookie” technology. A cookie is a little piece of text stored by your browser on your computer, at the request of our server. We may use cookies to deliver content specific to your interests and to save your personal preferences so you don’t have to re-enter them each time you connect to the Internet. You are always free to decline our cookies, if your browser permits, or to ask your browser to indicate when a cookie is being sent. You can also delete cookie files from your computer at your discretion. Note that if you decline our cookies or ask for notification each time a cookie is being sent, this may affect your ease of use of the Site.

(2) Personal InformationPersonal information is information which is personal or particular to a specific visitor who chooses to provide that information. This category would typically include information provided by you for subscriptions or competitions including your name, postal and email address and contact phone number.

We will process your personal information to administer your registration or subscription, determine your eligibility for certain services, provide services to you, and enable you to take advantage of other member benefits. Your information may also be used to verify your identity, to protect against fraud, and to send you updates about your account.
If you do not wish to receive communications from us or our business partners, please email us.

Transfer of Data

We may share personal information with our business partners if we are satisfied that it will only be used in accordance with the purposes described above.

When iSeek.ie becomes aware of possible violations, we will initiate an investigation.
