Use of Technical Information
While using this website, you may have the opportunity to send us information relating to you such as through a Contact form. By choosing to participate in these, you will be providing us with some level of personal information relating to you. This information will only be used by Donegal Tour Guide for the purpose for which it was provided by you or for verification purposes and statistical analysis. We use Secure Socket Layer (“SSL”) technology. If your browser supports SSL then any personal data that you send will be protected during transmission by encryption. Due to the nature of the internet, we cannot guarantee the protection of your personal data and therefore we are not responsible for any loss or damage resulting to you when the website is used. You should be aware that each time you visit a website, two general levels of information about your visit can be retained. The first level comprises statistical and other analytical information collected on an aggregate and non-individual specific basis of all browsers who visit the website and the second is information which is personal or particular to a specific visitor who knowingly chooses to provide that information. The statistical and analytical information provides us with a general and non-individual specific information about the number of people who visit this website; the number of people who return to the website; the pages that they visit; and where they were before they came to the website and the page in the website at which they exited. This information helps us monitor traffic on a website so that we can manage the website’s capacity and efficiency. This type of non-personal information and data can be collected through the standard operation for internet servers and logs as well as “cookies“.
