The Irish Museum of Modern Art recognizes the importance of your privacy when visiting our website. IMMA does not collect personal information about you when you visit our website unless you volunteer this information when signing up to various mailing lists, when booking tours/talks/lectures, buying IMMA editions/publications or becoming an IMMA Member. Your personal information is only used for the purpose you have requested and is not transferred or given out for any other use.
Information and Uses
IMMA will not sell, share, or rent your information in any way different from what is disclosed in this statement. IMMA collects information from you at several different points on our website in the following areas:
During registration for various services throughout our website you are required to give contact information (such as your name and/or email address). This information is used to provide the services that you have requested, or to contact you about the service on our site for which you have expressed interest. We will only contact you in relation to the service you have requested and will not transfer your personal information for any other use.
ii. Submitting Credit Card Details
When you submit your credit card details to avail of the various services on our website we use a secure server which assures that the information is protected against unauthorized access.
Like most websites, we use "cookie" technology on our website. A cookie is a small text file containing a unique identification number that is transferred from a website to the hard drive of your computer so that the site administrator may identify your computer and passively track its activities on the website. This unique number identifies your web browser to our computer system whenever you visit our site. We may place a "cookie" in the browser file of your computer, however the "cookie" itself does not contain any personally identifying information about you. The "cookie" does not track your personal information or provide us with any way to contact you, and the "cookie" does not extract any information off your computer. We use the "cookie" to provide functional information about your browser, allowing us to provide you with a better experience. We also use "cookies" to gather broad demographic information and general usage patterns about you and other users of our sites. If your browser rejects cookies, you may still use our site. The only drawback to this is that you may be unable to access certain areas of our site.
iv. Web Beacons
Also known as clear GIFs or single-pixel GIFs, web beacons are small image files that IMMA may place on web pages and within web-based email newsletters that we send. Working in conjunction with cookies, web beacons allow IMMA to accurately count the number of unique users who have visited a specific page on the IMMA site and the number of times those pages are displayed. This information is only collected in aggregate form and will not be linked to your personally identifiable information. The web beacons do not track your personal information or provide us with any way to contact you.
v. Log Files
We use server log data to help administer the site, to better understand the parts of the site and what types of content are most interesting to our site users, and to measure volumes of traffic. Each time an IMMA page is requested from your browser, we log your computer's IP address into our log files. Your computer has been pre-assigned a 12-digit number. This number is the IP address. We use your IP addresses to analyse trends, administer the site, track your movements on the site and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. The log files do not track your personal information or provide us with any way to contact you.
