We only collect identifiable personal data or information that is specifically and voluntarily provided by a visitor to our site. For example, a visitor to our site may choose to provide information such as name, title, office address, office email address and telephone number in order to:
• Register for certain areas of the site
• Contact us for further information
Visitors are also able to send email to us through the site. Their messages will contain the user’s screen name and email address, as well as any additional information the user may wish to include in the message.
We will not collect any personally identifiable information (personal data) about you – such as your name, address, telephone number or email address – through our website unless you have provided it to us voluntarily. If you do not want your personal data collected, please do not submit it to us.
We recognise that your information is valuable and we take all reasonable measures to protect your information while it is in our care. Our policy is not to share personally identifiable information with any third parties, unless required by law, or unless explicitly requested by a visitor or otherwise as set out in this section.
Additional information collected automatically
In some cases we may automatically (i.e. not via registration) collect technical information, which is not personally identifiable, when you connect to our site. Examples of this type of information include the type of internet browser you are using, the type of computer operating system you are using and the domain name of the website from which you linked to our site.
Cookies and log files (information placed automatically on your computer)
We use small text files called ‘cookies’ which are placed on your hard drives to assist in providing a more customised website experience. For example, a cookie can be used to store registration information in an area of the site so that a user does not need to re-enter it on subsequent visits to that area. Site statistics are compiled by third parties, and therefore your IP address will be passed to third parties for statistical reporting only.
