Website Data Protection and Use Policy

This policy sets out how Irish Life Assurance (ILA) use your personal information that you provide when interacting with this website. 

Site and other tracking

We use Google Analytics tracking software to monitor customer traffic patterns and site usage to help us develop the design and layout of the websites. This information is aggregated and the software does not allow the collection of individual site visitor information. It is used to assess user behaviour and characteristics in order to measure interest in and use of the various areas of the site. The type of information gathered typically includes:

  • The number of visitors to our website
  • The number of pages viewed
  • Which parts of the site are most popular
  • The demographics and interests of our visitors

The Irish Life Corporate Business website may make use of link shortener services from time to time in material served from the website or from third party platforms such as ISSUU. Information accessible through link shortener services is aggregated and the software does not allow the collection of individual site visitor information. When a shortened link is created, Irish Life may be able to view aggregated information about clicks and views of the shortened link, including the number of times the link was shared, whether or not it was viewed, comparison of that link’s performance to that of similar links pointing to the same content, whether others are sharing their own shortened link to the same content, geographic regions where the content is being viewed, and identification of social networks or websites on which the shortened link appears.

Such links or references are not an endorsement by Irish Life of any third party or any third party products and services. This Website Use Policy only covers websites that we own and control.

We take great care to ensure the security of this site. The IRISH LIFE Network is protected by a firewall system, which forms a barrier between the outside Internet and the internal network. The purpose of a firewall is to ensure only authorised traffic is allowed to pass to IRISH LIFE systems and networks - all other traffic from the Internet is rejected.

The firewall verifies the source and destination of each network packet, and determines whether or not to let the packet through. Access is denied if the packet is not directed at a specific, available service. The firewall is used to shield the IRISH LIFE internal network from the Internet. The security system includes the use of a secure browser to access information and performs transactions. It allows for the transfer of digitally signed certificates for authentication procedures and provides message integrity, so that information cannot be tampered with in transit. Microsoft Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome and Apple Safari are all secure browsers.

 The data you provide to us through a secure browser is protected using SSL (Secure Socket Layer) technology. SSL is the industry standard method of encrypting personal information and credit card details so that they can be securely transferred over the Internet.
