support of our members and website visitors, we operate under this code of conduct.
What types of information are Irish Draught Horse
Society (GB) collecting, and
how is the site collecting it?
The majority of information, products and services on our site are offered
without our collecting any personally identifiable information from
you. You can surf
the Irish Draught Horse Society (GB) web site and view
much of our terrific content anonymously.
Information You Provide
There are a few activities on our site where the collection of
personally identifiable information may be necessary. Those activities
include things like site registration (when activated), entering a forum
(when forums are in use), or contacting us. When
personally identifiable information is collected, you will know
because you will have to fill out a form. For most activities, we
collect only your name and e-mail address.
Information Collected from You with Technology
The Irish Draught Horse Society (GB)
web site occasionally collects some information
about you using technology, so it may not be readily apparent to you
that it is being collected. For instance, when you come to our site
your IP address is collected so that we know where to send
information you are requesting. An IP address is often associated
with the place from which you enter the Internet like your ISP
(Internet service provider), your company, or your university. This
information assists us in establishing the value of our external
links, and is not personally identifiable.
The Irish Draught Horse Society (GB) web site
uses information collected through technology to make our sites more
interesting and useful to you. We DO NOT normally combine this type
of information with personally identifiable information.
Similar to many web sites, our web site, on
occasions, utilizes a standard
technology called "cookies" (see explanation below, What Are
Cookies?) and web server logs to collect information about how our
web site is used. Information gathered through cookies and web
server logs may include the date and time of visits, the pages
viewed, time spent on our web site, and the web sites visited just
before and just after our web site. This information is collected on
an aggregate basis. None of this information is associated with you
as an individual.
Use of "Web bugs"
What is a Web Bug? A web bug is a graphic
on a web page or in an e-mail message that is designed to monitor
who is reading the web page or e-mail message. Web bugs are often
invisible because they are typically only 1-by-1 pixel in size.
We do not use "Web bugs."
Some Internet security applications
may mis-identify static graphic elements, used for layout purposes
only, as web bugs. Consult your security program's documentation for
details on filtering unsuspicious images.
