For general web browsing (i.e. where no fishing permit transaction takes place), no personal information is revealed to us, although certain statistical information is available to us via our internet service provider. This information may include:
- The logical address of the server you are using
- The top level domain name from which you access the Internet (for example, .ie, com, .org etc.)
- The type of browser you are using
- The date and time you access our site
- The Internet address used to link to our site
Some of the above information is used to create summary statistics that allow us to assess the number of visitors to our site, identify what pages are accessed most frequently and generally, help us to make our site more user friendly.
To ensure the security of your credit or Laser card information when you purchase a fishing permit on this site, we use Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology. As you access all areas of this site, you will see the padlock in your browsers's security display indicating the transfer of all data between your browser and our site has been encrypted.
You must make sure that if you're sending sensitive personal or financial information that your connection is secure. If your connection is secure a closed padlock icon appears on the status bar and the URL will start with https:// rather than http://
Your laser or credit card information is not retained on this site, rather it is securely transferred to Realex Payments, a secure online payments provider.
