About our Cookies Policy

This cookie policy explains what cookies are and how we use them on our website. You should read this policy, so you can understand what type of cookies we use, the information we collect using the cookies and how that information is used. By using our website, you are agreeing that we can use cookies in accordance with this policy.

How are cookies used on AsIAm.ie?

Cookies are simple text files stored by your web browser that provide a method of distinguishing among donors and visitors to the website. To learn more about cookies and how to delete them visit www.aboutcookies.org.

AsIAm uses cookies to identify your browser as you visit pages on our website.

Cookies created on your computer by using our website do not contain personally identifiable information and do not compromise your privacy or security. When we refer to “cookies” in this policy, we also mean other similar technologies such as pixels, tags and/or SDKs.

Cookies allow AsIAm to gather anonymous information. Cookies also allow AsIAm to provide more relevant, targeted content as you travel through sites in AsIAm’s media network as appropriate.

What types of cookies does AsIAm.ie use?

Analytical/performance or ‘First Party’ cookies

These cookies allow us to recognise and count the number of visitors to our website and to see how visitors move around when they are using it. This helps us to improve the way our website works, for example, by ensuring that users find what they are looking for easily.

We use Google Analytics to collect information about visitor behaviour on our website. Google Analytics stores information about what pages you visit, how long you are on the site, how you got here, and what you click on. This analytics data is collected via a JavaScript tag in the pages of our site and is not tied to personally identifiable information. We therefore do not collect or store your personal information (e.g. your name or address) so this information cannot be used to identify who you are.

You can find out more about Google’s position on privacy as regards its analytics service.

Social sharing or ‘Third Party’ cookies

These cookies are used to make the sharing of content easier. Some of our website pages may contain applications and tools that are linked to third party social media service providers such as Facebook, Twitter or Google+. Through these applications or tools, the social media service provider may set its own cookies on your device (“third party cookies”). We do not control the settings of these cookies, so we suggest you check the social media service provider’s website for more information about their cookies and how to manage them.

We also have a variety of pages on social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter and we provide links to these pages on our website. If you choose to click on these links, the social media service provider may set its own cookies on your device. We do not control the settings of these cookies, so we suggest you check the social media service provider’s website for more information about their cookies and how to manage them.
