Collection of Personal Information
We may offer certain functions and services which, if you choose to use them, will require information from you in order to work, such as your name, email, address and mobile telephone number. We will endeavor to let you know before your personal information is collected from you on the internet.
Use of Personal Information
We use personal information for these primary purposes:
- To make the site easier for you to use by not making you enter your personal information more than once
- To help us create and deliver content most relevant to you
We are very much aware that some people will not want their information used other than for the purposes for which it was supplied; some will want to receive information from us on team issues only and others will want to receive more information. We will use your personal data for the administration of the club and teams, but will give you the choice as to what information if any you wish to receive by email.
Providing you with information
We may also use your anonymised information for general statistical purposes. This will only be used:
- For trends and statistics and to evaluate the efficiency of our website and our internet infrastructure
- To ensure that services offered are not abused

You should also be aware that when you visit our websites, we collect certain information that does not identify you personally, but provides us with “usage data,” such as the number of visitors we receive or what pages are visited most often. This data helps us to analyse and improve the usefulness of the information we provide at these websites.
Similar to other commercial websites, our Website uses a technology called “cookies” and web server logs to collect information about how our Website is used. A cookie is a very small text document, which often includes an anonymous unique identifier. When you visit a website, that site’s computer asks your computer for permission to store this file in a part of your hard drive specifically designated for cookies
Information gathered through cookies and web server logs may include the date and time of visits, the pages viewed, time spent at our website, and the websites visited just before and just after our website.
Cookies, in conjunction with our web server’s log files, allow us to calculate the aggregate number of people visiting our Website and which parts of the website are most popular. This helps us gather feedback so that we can improve our Website and better serve our customers. Cookies do not allow us to gather any personal Information about you and we do not generally store any personal Information that you provided to us in your cookies.
We use ‘session’ cookies which enable you to carry information across pages of the Website and avoid having to re-enter information. Session cookies enable us to compile statistics that help us to understand how the Website is being used and to improve its structure.
We also use ‘persistent’ cookies which remain in the cookies file of your browser for longer and help us to recognise you as a unique visitor to the Website, tailoring the content of certain areas of the Website to offer you content that match your preferred interests.
If for any reason you are unhappy about our use of your information, we would like you to contact us directly so that we can address your complaint. You are also entitled to lodge a complaint with the Irish Data Protection Commissioner’s Office using any of the below contact methods:
