What personally identifiable information is being collected?
When you visit or make use of Flies of Ireland’s Tech Resources, you may be asked to provide us with personally identifiable information in order for us to provide you with the products or services that you have requested.

If you request one of our newsletters or send an inquiry to one of our customer service representatives, we will also store a record of your request along with your e-mail address. In addition, our Web servers track various technical details about your visit, such as you computer’s IP address and which pages you visited, however that information does not typically contain any personally identifiable information about you. We use this information to monitor and improve our Tech Resources as well as personalize your experience with Flies of Ireland through direct on-line advertising.
We post customer testimonials on our web site which may contain personally identifiable information such as the customer’s name. We do obtain the customer’s consent prior to posting the testimonial to post their name along with their testimonial.
Our web site includes links to other web sites whose privacy practices may differ from those of Flies of Ireland. If you submit personally identifiable information to any of those web sites, your information is governed by their privacy statement.
