We may collect information about you in a variety of ways. The information we may collect on the Site includes:
Personally identifiable information, such as your name, email address, postal address, and your genealogical research interests and details, that you choose to give to us when you participate in various services related to the Site, when completing our Research Application and Membership forms.
You are under no obligation to provide us with personal information of any kind, however, your refusal to do so may prevent you from using certain features of the Site, such as the membership area, among other services.
When you browse our Site, we also automatically receive analytical data in order to provide us with information that helps us learn about user behaviours, user interactions, as well as user device and operating system usage. Your computer’s internet protocol (IP) address that we receive is anonymized, so this analytical information cannot be traced back to any individual.
Limerick Genealogy holds the personal and genealogical information you have provided for the purposes of genealogical research, securely and indefinitely and with the aim of putting common descendants of the same family in contact, if they so wish at some point in the future.
We may also use information collected about you via the Site for the following:
• To request payment for commissioned work
• To contact you in relation to your membership
• To send you email marketing communications, with your consent
• To enable your access to and use of the website services
• To publish information about you on the website, with your permission
• To compile anonymous statistical data and analysis for use internally
• To monitor and analyze usage and trends to improve your experience with the Site.
When you provide us with personal information to complete a Research Application Form or Membership Form, we imply that you consent to our collecting it and using it for that specific reason only.
If we ask for your personal information for a secondary reason, such as email marketing, we will either ask you directly for your expressed consent, or provide you with an opportunity to say no.
How do I withdraw my consent?
If after you opt-in, you change your mind, you may withdraw your consent for us to contact you, for the continued collection, use or disclosure of your information, at anytime, by contacting us. All contact information is at the end of this policy page.

Limerick Genealogy will store the personal information you provide on its secure servers. While we have taken reasonable steps to secure the personal information you provide to us, please be aware that despite our efforts, no security measures are perfect or impenetrable, and no method of data transmission can be guaranteed against any interception or other type of misuse.
