Children’s’ Privacy Statement

Enniscorthy Credit Union is concerned about children’s privacy.

The websites that we operate provide a forum for all our members, including children, to view our products and what is happening. While we encourage children to participate appropriately in our websites, their privacy is extremely important to us. This Children’s Privacy Statement explains our information practices in connection with information provided by children under the age of 16 years old on websites that link to this Children’s Privacy Statement. The websites are controlled and operated by us from Ireland and are not intended to subject us to the laws or jurisdiction of any state, country or territory other than that of the Republic Of Ireland. Our goal is to minimise the information gathered from and disseminated about children under 16 years old while permitting them active participation in the trustworthy information, education and independent voice for which Enniscorthy Credit Union is known

A. How do we Collect and use Information from Children?

Children can explore the websites, and can view and print reviews, comments and other content without providing any personal information. We do not permit children under 16 years of age to become an CU Online user. We may use information collected from children during the exploration of our sites in the following manner:

  • To confirm the child’s account
  • To determine the child’s current age in order to respond to any queries in an appropriate manner.

Children may post comments on our websites provided they are eligible users of said websites. We moderate all postings including children’s postings to remove personal information, and we encourage parents to discuss with their children why they should never include personal information in comments posted to the websites. Children may also participate in other online activities, such as polls. All members, including children, can delete their postings to the websites. Or the member can send an email requesting deletion to, noting their name and date of the comment. It is possible that deleted reviews or comments will remain in our system (such as in backups of our data), but they will not be visible through the sites. Please note that your request for deletion does not ensure complete or comprehensive removal of the content or information, as, for example, some of your content may have been re-posted by another user.

When children interact with the websites, certain technical information may automatically be collected, both to make our websites more interesting and useful and for various internal purposes related to our business. Examples of information that is automatically collected include: the type of computer operating system, the device’s IP address or mobile device identifier, the web browser, the frequency with which the child visits various parts of our websites, and information regarding the online or mobile service provider. This information is collected using technologies such as cookies, flash cookies, web beacons, and other unique identifiers (which we define under the “Use of Cookies” section of our general Privacy Statement). This information may be collected by us or by a third party. Persistent identifier information is used by Enniscorthy Credit Union for the sole purpose of providing support for our internal operations, including in order to:

  • Ensure that the websites function properly
  • Enable us to conduct research and analysis to understand, address and improve the use and performance of the websites and
  • Diagnose and respond to problems.

B. What Information about Children is Shared?

We do not disclose to third parties any children’s personal information that we collect other than as follows, consistent with applicable law:

(a) with a parent’s permission,
(b) as required by any applicable law,
(c) to third-party service providers who help us operate or manage the Sites,

C. How Parents can Access, Change or Delete Information about their Child?

Parents may at any time access or change the personal information that we have collected online from their children. Parents may also ask us to cease further collection of personal information from their children, or to make no further use of, or delete, the personal information we have collected online from their children, in which case, the child’s account will be deleted. Parents may contact us at For your child’s protection, we may need to verify your identity before implementing your request.
