Privacy Policy

The Irish LEGO User Group is committed to protecting the privacy of our members. We have developed our Privacy Policy to comply with the EU General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) and to explain how and why we collect, store and use your personal data.

How we collect personal data and what is collected

All other personal data collected is limited to that which you have volunteered to provide when registering or updating your account and profile information and when posting in the forum.

Why we collect this data

Your email address is collected to facilitate registration validation and to allow communication to finalise your registration and keep you informed of community news. You can opt-out of receiving communication by email once your account has been approved. IP addresses are logged to assist forum moderation and to combat spam.

Sharing of your data

We do not share any personal data with third parties with the exception of IP addresses used by Google Analytics and Statcounter (see ‘Use of Cookies’ below).

Protection of your data

We have appropriate security measures in place in our physical facilities to protect against the loss, misuse or alteration of information collected.

You can view and edit your primary data on your account and profile pages. Forum posts can be viewed and edited under individual forum topics.

Removal of your data
