Privacy Statement

Your privacy on the Internet is of utmost importance to NALA.  Please read the following policy to understand how your personal information will be treated.  By visiting this website you are accepting the practices described in this policy.

Privacy Policy

NALA, the publisher of nala.ie, is committed to protecting your privacy. We have adopted this Privacy Policy to let you know how your personal information is processed and used. We promise that we will take steps to use your personal information only in ways that are compatible with this Privacy Policy.

The following policies are only in effect for the web pages and newsletters owned and operated by NALA through nala.ie

What information are we collecting and how are we collecting it?

Every computer connected to the Internet is given a domain name and a set of numbers that serve as that computer's "Internet Protocol" IP address. When a visitor requests a page from any Web site within the nala.ie network, our Web servers automatically recognize that visitor's domain name and IP address. The domain name and IP address reveal nothing personal about you other than the IP address from which you have accessed our site. We use this information to examine our traffic in aggregate, but do not collect and evaluate this information for individuals.

Sensitive Information

We use secure server software called Realex to protect credit card numbers, account numbers and online donations. This software encrypts financial information provided online. It prevents anyone else reading your information while your transaction is being processed. To view the Realex security statement please click here

What are cookies?

From time to time, nala.ie may send a "cookie" to your computer. A cookie is a small piece of data that is sent to your browser from a web server and stored on your computer's hard drive. A cookie can't read data off your hard disk or read cookie files created by other sites. Cookies do not damage your system. We use cookies to identify which areas of nala.ie you have visited or customized, so that in time we may provide a better and more personalized experience for you.

You can choose whether to accept cookies by changing the settings of your browser. You can reset your browser to refuse all cookies, or allow your browser to show you when a cookie is being sent. If you choose not to accept these cookies, your experience at our site may be diminished and some features may not work as intended.

What other information do we request?

We may also request your e-mail address or mailing address for the purposes of conducting a survey or to provide additional services (for example, subscriptions to e-mail newsletters, announcement lists or information about seminars). Whenever we request the identity of a visitor, we will clearly indicate the purpose of the inquiry before the information is requested. In addition, nala.ie will not send you email that you have not agreed to receive.

Will we disclose the information we collect to outside third parties?

nala.ie may share aggregate information about our users to third parties but will not share any personally identifiable information about you without your express consent. nala.ie uses reasonable precautions to keep the information disclosed to us secure. We do not intend to sell, rent, or otherwise give your e-mail address to a third-party, without your consent. Furthermore, we are not responsible for any breach of security or for any actions of any third parties who receive the information. As a directory, nala.ie has links to a wide variety of other sites. We are not responsible for their privacy policies or how they treat information about their users.

Please note that nala.ie will release specific personal information about you if required to do so in order to comply with any valid legal process such as a search warrant, subpoena, statute, or court order.
