Privacy Policy - dressesonline.ie

Dear customer,

We've updated our Privacy Policy following the European General Data Protection Regulation. We reckon is a perfect time to improve our relationship, that's why we invite you to check the upgrades we have implemented, always intending you can decide freely and transparently about the information you share with us. 

We want to give you all the information you need:


What's GDPR?

GDPR is the new european data protection law that will enter into force on the 25th of May 2018 for all the EU countries. The target of this law is to give you a bigger control and security over your personal data.

Which data is affected?

This law affects every information related with you that can be used directly or indirectly for identification purposes: a name, a photo, an email address, your bank account, social media posts, medical records or an IP address.

Who is affected?

GPDR is applied over any organisation that processes personal information in the EU, regardless of whether is phisically located in Europe or not.

What should you do?

We have updated our terms of use and privacy policy, and they will be active from today. Please, read them carefully so you can get familiar with the changes we have made.

Some important changes:

1. Bigger transparency and clarity. We have arranged our Privacy Policy content so it's more understandable and accessible, remarking the most relevant parts and describing how we process your data.

2. GDPR updates. The new General Data Protection Regulation imposes the companies that manage personal data from UE citizens new obligations. As a result, we have updated our Terms or Use and Privacy Policy to better explain our relationship with our customers and users, and the management of their personal information.

We hope these changes are helpful. We would be more than happy to help you if you have any questions. You can contact us at Ci Ci Boutique (dressesonline.ie), 39 Pearse Street, Clonakilty, Co Cork, or by email: ciciboutique@hotmail.com. If you prefer, you can contact us by phone: 086 0209833, from Monday to Saturday from 10.00 to 18.00h:

Thank you for your trust!

Kind regards,
Ci Ci Boutique.

Privacy Policy

Ci Ci Boutique T/A dressesonline.ie Privacy Policy 

This Privacy Policy describes how your personal information is collected, used, and shared when you visit or make a purchase from https://www.dressesonline.ie (the “Site”).

Please note that, while Ci Ci Boutique T/A dressesonline.ie makes all possible efforts to protect our customers’ privacy, we would like to make customers aware that information disclosed while connected to the Internet may be transferred to the www.dressesonline.ie servers over a publicly available telecommunications network. www.dressesonline.ie cannot be held responsible, and accepts no liability, for unauthorised access to the public network beyond its control. All information provided by customers is done entirely at the customers’ own risk.


When you visit the Site, we automatically collect certain information about your device, including information about your web browser, IP address, time zone, and some of the cookies that are installed on your device. Additionally, as you browse the Site, we collect information about the individual web pages or products that you view, what websites or search terms referred you to the Site, and information about how you interact with the Site. We refer to this automatically-collected information as “Device Information.”

We collect Device Information using the following technologies:


Cookies allow us to give you a much more personalised shopping experience. Here is some information about cookies and ways that we and our third party providers like shopify use them.

- “Cookies” are data files that are placed on your device or computer and often include an anonymous unique identifier. For more information about cookies, and how to disable cookies, visit http://www.allaboutcookies.org.

- “Log files” track actions occurring on the Site, and collect data including your IP address, browser type, Internet service provider, referring/exit pages, and date/time stamps.

- “Web beacons,” “tags,” and “pixels” are electronic files used to record information about how you browse the Site.

Here is a list of cookies that we use. We’ve listed them here so you can choose if you want to opt-out of cookies or not.

Additionally, when you make a purchase or attempt to make a purchase through the Site, we collect certain information from you, including your name, billing address, shipping address, payment information, email address, and phone number. We refer to this information as “Order Information.” We do not process or collect card numbers. Cards are processed by Paypal and Shopify by their secured servers.

When we talk about “Personal Information” in this Privacy Policy, we are talking both about Device Information and Order Information.

Payment: If you choose a direct payment gateway to complete your purchase, then Shopify stores your credit card data. It is encrypted through the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS). Your purchase transaction data is stored only as long as is necessary to complete your purchase transaction. After that is complete, your purchase transaction information is deleted. All direct payment gateways adhere to the standards set by PCI-DSS as managed by the PCI Security Standards Council, which is a joint effort of brands like Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover. PCI-DSS requirements help ensure the secure handling of credit card information by our store and its service providers. For more insight, you may also want to read Shopify’s Terms of Service here or Privacy Statement here.

In general, the third-party providers used by us will only collect, use and disclose your information to the extent necessary to allow them to perform the services they provide to us.

However, certain third-party service providers, such as payment gateways and other payment transaction processors, have their own privacy policies in respect to the information we are required to provide to them for your purchase-related transactions. For these providers, we recommend that you read their privacy policies so you can understand the manner in which your personal information will be handled by these providers. In particular, remember that certain providers may be located in or have facilities that are located in a different jurisdiction than either you or us. So if you elect to proceed with a transaction that involves the services of a third-party service provider, then your information may become subject to the laws of the jurisdiction(s) in which that service provider or its facilities are located. As an example, if you are located in Canada and your transaction is processed by a payment gateway located in the United States, then your personal information used in completing that transaction may be subject to disclosure under United States legislation, including the Patriot Act. Once you leave our store’s website or are redirected to a third-party website or application, you are no longer governed by this Privacy Policy or our website’s Terms of Service.
