Dublin Community Growers

This privacy policy will explain how Dublin Community Growers (referred as DCG in the rest of the document) uses the personal data we collect from you when you use our website.

Who we are

We are a non-profit group of volunteers. Our website address is: http://www.dublincommunitygrowers.ie

What personal data we collect and why we collect it

We collect the personal information you give us such as your name and email address. When you browse our website, we also automatically receive your computer’s internet protocol (IP) address in order to provide us with information that helps us learn about your browser and operating system.

We collect and process data when you:

  • Register online or fill the contact form.
  • Voluntarily complete a customer survey or provide feedback on any of our message boards or via email.
  • Use or view our website via your browser’s cookies.

 

We collect your data so that we can:

  • Reply by e-mail to your queries received via the Contact Us Form.
  • Send you news and updates that you have requested.
  • Create the information most relevant to our users.

Comments

When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymised string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service Privacy Policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

Media

If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.

Cookies

Our Company uses cookies in a range of ways to improve your experience on our website, including keeping you signed in and understanding how you use our website.

Our Company uses these cookies so that we recognize you on our website and remember your previously selected preferences. These could include what language you prefer and location you are in. A mix of first-party and third-party cookies may be used.

If you leave a comment on our site you may opt in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

If you visit our login page, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.

You can set your browser not to accept cookies, and allaboutcookies.org tells you how to remove cookies from your browser. However, in a few cases, some of our website features may not function as a result.

We use reCAPTCHA in our forms. It uses cookies from Google to deliver its services and to analyze traffic.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Privacy policies of other websites

Our website contains links to other websites. Our privacy policy applies only to our website, so if you click on a link to another website, you should read their privacy policy.

Who we share your data with

The security of your data and transparency is of the utmost concern to us. Any personal data we collect is solely for the provision of our services to you. We will never provide your personal data to third parties for the purposes of marketing or advertising.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognise and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

What rights you have over your data

If you have concerns regarding your data, you have the ability to make reasonable requests to see this information, rectify it or have it deleted/anonymised. Please contact us via email through the contact us form with any concerns you might have in this area.  This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

If you have registered to receive newsletters/updates you may always opt out at a later date. If you no longer wish to be contacted, please click on the “Unsubscribe” option on the mailing updates.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

How we protect your data

To protect your personal information, we take reasonable precautions and follow best practices to make sure it is not inappropriately lost, misused, accessed, disclosed, altered or destroyed.
