The Indymedia Ireland web server retains logs of all activity on the website. Normally, these logs are used purely for the purpose of compiling statistics about site usage and are deleted after 7 days. In special cases, where persistent patterns of abuse are noticed, we may decide to use the logs to identify the source of the abuse. The information in these logs is not shared with any other body and is not used for any other purposes.
The Indymedia Ireland web site contains links to other websites, whether controlled by Indymedia affiliates or unrelated third parties. Indymedia Ireland is not responsible for the privacy policies and practices of any linked website.
Currently, the Indymedia Ireland site uses personal information as a basis for identifying the authors of published articles, and in order to allow individual user login to certain site functions (e.g. to administer the newswire). Names (and additional information that a user may choose to post) are publicly available on the Indymedia Ireland site.
All email sent to the Indymedia Ireland mailing list is stored and publicly accessible at the list archive, including the sender's reported name and e-mail address.

At no time, unless a user specifically authorizes such disclosure, will Indymedia Ireland disclose individual user personal information that is not publicly available to unrelated third parties.
The Indymedia Ireland email lists, hosted at lists.indymedia.org, are configured such that all text messages sent to the list, along with names and email addresses, are disclosed in the message archive. In addition, a complete list of subscribers may be available to third parties at the lists web site, although users can opt to conceal themselves from the subscriber list. Users concerned with privacy issues are encouraged to sign up for an anonymous email service.
