E-mail addresses (when you sign up to receive Code for Ireland mailshots / newsletters)

We only share you e-mail address for genuine Code for Ireland purposes; for example, Code for Europe may contact you with relevant information, on our behalf. Otherwise, we do not share e-mails. We do not track by name / e-mail address the opens or click-throughs on our newsletter; the IP information we receive is obfuscated before storage.


Cookies make your visit to the site smoother – but we don’t collect any personal information about you by means of those cookies.


If you contact Code for Ireland using the Contact page we get the e-mail address you entered on the form, but will only use it for contacting you back.

Analytics etc.

The site uses Google Analytics as an aid to see how the site is performing, what pages get the most visits, etc. Google Analytics uses a user’s IP address (which looks something like ‘’) to count visits and visitors. This IP address is anonymous as far asCode for Ireland is concerned, and Code for Ireland gets no information identifying users from Analytics. If you are logged in on Chrome, Google will be tracking your behaviour from site to site and page to page. The same applies for Facebook on any page that has a Facebook button.

All websites are required to keep logs of site activity, and these logs are held on the server of the hosting service. The information held includes IP addresses.
