When you visit sinnfein.ie for the first time, a "cookie" is sent to your computer. This cookie identifies you as a unique user whenever you visit the site. Such cookies allow Sinn Féin to improve our internet services and to be more responsive to the needs of our online visitors.

Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but, if you wish, you can change these browser settings by accepting, rejecting and deleting cookies. The "help" portion of the toolbar on most browsers will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie, or how to disable cookies altogether. If you choose to change these settings, you may find that certain functions and features will not work as intended. The cookies we use do not detect any information stored on your computers.
Sinn Féin does not collect any unique information about you (such as your name, email address, etc.) except when you knowingly choose to provide such information as in the case of the Join or support Sinn Féin forms. Otherwise, we only collect such anonymous information such as time, browser type, operating system, and IP address. That information is used to provide more effective service to our online visitors. For example, Sinn Féin may use browser/operating system information in developing future projects on the Web.
