Cookie Policy

Updated 30/10/2020

Irelandseyeonline.com uses cookies to enhance and personalise your shopping and browsing experience. These cookies help us improve our website user experience and your security. By clicking on ‘Ok’ you agree that we may store and access cookies on your devices, unless you have disabled cookies.


What Are Cookies
As is common practice with almost all ecommerce websites, this site uses cookies, which are tiny files that are downloaded to your computer, to improve your experience. This page describes what information they gather, how we use it and why we sometimes need to store these cookies. We will also share how you can prevent these cookies from being stored, however doing so may downgrade or disable certain elements of this website's functionality.

Types of Cookies
Reference: https://gdpr.eu/cookies/.

Cookies can be grouped by three different criteria; duration, provenance and purpose:

Duration
Session
These cookies last for one session on the site. A session is from when you land on site to when you close the tab. An example of this is a cookie set by Shopify to determine what country you’re accessing the site from. Once you leave the site, this cookie is deleted.

Persistent
Persistent cookies last for longer than the session. They can have any expiry date in the future. An example of this is a cookie set by Shopify to remember if you are logged in. If you log into irelandseyeonline.com, leave the site and then come back within a predetermined time frame, you won’t have to log back in.

Provenance
First Party
First party cookies are cookies that are set on your browser by irelandseyeonline.com or Shopify. These cookies allow for things like your cart not being cleared every time you leave the site.

Third Party
Third party cookies are cookies that are set on your browser by a third party service such as Google Analytics. This site uses Google Analytics to collect anonymous usage data on metrics like page views and session duration. This information is stored by Google and subject to their Privacy Policy, which can be viewed here: http://www.google.com/privacy.html.

Purpose
Strictly Necessary
Strictly necessary cookies are cookies that allow the site to function. Without them, the site would not work as intended and run into bugs and crashes. These are almost always first party cookies. An example of a strictly necessary cookie is remembering your shopping cart contents or checkout.

Preference
These are sometimes called “functionality cookies”. They are not as critical to the website's functionality as Strictly Necessary cookies but they remember preferences. An example of how these are used on this site is to remember what currency you browse the site in.

Statistics
These cookies provide anonymous usage data. None of this information can be used to identify you and it is all pooled together to track things like page views, average time on page and bounce rate. Google Analytics, as mentioned above, is a third party statistics cookie.

Marketing
These cookies track what products you interact with and are then used to deliver more relevant advertising. These are almost always third-party cookies. An example of this is if you view multiple sweaters on irelandseyeonline.com, you may see an advertisement for sweaters in Google Search Results on that device.

How do I disable cookies?
Our store is hosted on Shopify, which allows us to sell our products and services to you. Your data is stored through Shopify’s data storage, databases and the general Shopify application. They store your data on a secure server behind a firewall. This means that many of the cookies set on this site originate on Shopify’s servers. This is good for your privacy - but it makes it difficult for us to control which cookies you are served onsite.

If you want to block cookies for this site, you can do so using your browser. We have linked some guides below. Beware that this might have an impact on the functionality of this site and other sites. You can also use an incognito mode in your browser to stop cookies being stored on your device. Session cookies will still work, as will most strictly necessary cookies, but they will not be saved when you leave incognito mode.
