who we are

Our website address is

type of data collected

We collect and store any information you enter on our website (name, email address, comments) or provide to us in any other way. In addition, we collect the internet protocol (IP) address used to connect your computer to the internet. We may use software tools (Google Analytics) to measure and collect session information, including page response times, length of visits to certain pages, page interaction information, and methods used to browse away from the page. We do so to gain insights and improve the functionality of our website, or for marketing purposes.

contact form: cookies

If you leave a comment on our site, you may opt in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

We use the Contact Form 7 and Flamingo plugins on our website. This plugin stores submission data collected through contact forms, which may include the submitters’ personal information, in the database on the server that hosts the website. However, we do not share any data transmitted via this plugin with anyone.

embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.


data storage: how long data is retained

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognise and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue. Note: The comment function is currently not activated on this website.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

We use Google Analytics to gain insights and improve the functionality of our website, or for marketing purposes.

what rights you have over your data

If you have left comments or contacted us via the contact form, you can request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. If you do not want us to process or retain your data anymore, please contact us at info {at} berrytree {dot} ie. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

With regard to the data collected by Google Analytics, visitors to our website may opt out of having their data analysed by Google Analytics.
