Sligo Libraries Data Protection Notice
Sligo County Libraries fully respects your right to privacy, and we will not portray any personal information about you on this website without your clear permission. Any information which you volunteer to Sligo County Libraries Management System or associated websites will be treated with the highest standard of security and confidentiality, strictly in accordance with the Data Protection Acts, 1988 & 2003.
What Personal Information About Customers Does Sligo County Libraries Gather?
The information we gather from customers are their names, home addresses and mobile telephone numbers. During certain events and activities electronic images may be taken within the confines of the various library branches. This helps us personalize and continually improve your experience of our service be it online through sligolibrary.ie or more traditionally via our public desks, phone or mail.
Information You Give Us:
We receive and store any information you give to us when joining or updating your membership to the library or give us in any other way. You can choose not to provide certain information, but then you might not be able to take advantage of many of our features. When you register for membership, we require personal information (like name, address, mobile phone number etc.). All electronic images taken of library members are done so with the consent of the members in question and in the case of minors, their parents or guardians are requested to fill out the appropriate consent form. We use the information that you provide for such purposes as updating your account, responding to your requests, customizing our online services for you, improving our online services, and communicating with you.
If we do use mailing lists to pass on information on your account(s) or promotions to you about our online services, we will always have a clear mechanism for you to remove yourself from future mailings.
Sligo County Libraries assures you that the identity of all who contact us through this website is kept confidential: we do not rent, sell, or exchange mailing lists, or otherwise disclose such information to third parties, except as may be required by law, or through voluntary cooperation with law enforcement authorities if we judge that such cooperation is necessary to combat fraud or other crime.
For general web browsing no personal information is revealed to us, although certain statistical information is available to us from our website logs. For example, like many websites, we obtain certain types of information when your web browser (browsers are pieces of software that allow you to access the internet; examples include: Internet Explorer, Netscape, Opera, Mozilla, etc.) accesses sligolibrary.ie or indeed other County Council websites. See the following for examples;
Does Sligo County Libraries share the Information it receives?
Rarely. In cases where there is a statutory requirement to share information with a government agency or other local authority or where your information must be shared with another agency in order to answer a customer query, then the minimum amount of information required will be shared in an appropriate manner. Generally, information is shared with other agencies as an aggregate rather than as a specific piece of data. We may choose to release automatic information (see above) and other information received to the website to companies and organizations for fraud protection reduction. Information of this type will only be shared about users who have caused or attempted to cause damage to sligolibrary.ie or other council websites. This type of information would be shared only as a result of “hacking” attacks, fraud or other illegal activities.
