Privacy & Cookies
Your continued use of this website confirms acceptance that the Institute of Eye Surgery treats your privacy and the security of your information very seriously and take all reasonable steps to protect them. We undertake that we will not provide your information to any other person or organisation. Personal information provided by you (name, address, email address or telephone number) is kept safely on a computerised system that protects it against unauthorised access or loss. We reserve the right to change this policy and any such changes will be posted on this page without advance notice. This policy, and all matters relating to the website are governed exclusively by Irish Law and are subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the Irish courts.
The General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) requires organisations placing cookies onto visitors’ computers via their websites to obtain “consent” after providing clear and comprehensive information about how cookies and other tracking technologies are used.
In order to comply, we:
- Identify cookies and other tracking technologies served through this website, the purposes they fulfil and related information such as their expiry and whether they are first or third- party cookies.
- Provide ‘clear and comprehensive’ information about website cookies with the appropriate level of disclosure corresponding with the intrusiveness of each cookie.
- Decide on an appropriate strategy for obtaining consent for website cookies, taking into account their use and intrusiveness. Certain types of cookie may qualify for legal exemptions and where this is the case, consent will not be required for these cookies
What is a Cookie?
A cookie is a piece of data contained in a very small text file that is stored in your browser or elsewhere on your hard drive. Cookies allow IoES to identify your device as you navigate through our publicly-accessible website. We also use them to recognise return visitors to the IoES Site. This helps make navigating and interacting with the Company Site and our account portal more efficient, easy and meaningful.
By themselves, cookies do not identify you specifically. Rather, they recognise your web browser. So, unless you identify yourself specifically to IoES we don’t know who you are just because you visited our site.
IoES uses both session and persistent cookies. Session cookies are cookies that disappear from your computer or browser when you turn off your computer. Persistent cookies stay on your computer even after you’ve turned it off.
You can turn off your web browser’s ability to accept cookies. But, if you do that, certain parts of the Company Site or account portal may not work for you.
