Privacy & cookies

This Privacy Policy is designed to tell you about our practices regarding collection, use, and disclosure of information that you may provide via the website.

 

Your Consent

By using the website, you agree with the terms of this Privacy Policy.  Whenever you submit information via the website, you consent to the collection, use, and disclosure of that information in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

Active Information Collection

Like many websites, this website actively collects information from its visitors by permitting you to communicate directly with us via e-mail and feedback forms, or by registering to access some content. Some of the information that you submit may be personally identifiable information (that is, information that can be uniquely identified with you, such as your full name, address, e-mail address, phone number, and so on).

Some areas of this site may require you to submit information in order for you to benefit from the specified features (such as newsletter subscriptions). You will be informed at each information collection point what information is required and what information is optional.

Passive Information Collection

As you navigate through a website, certain information can be passively collected (that is, gathered without you actively providing the information) using various technologies and means, such as Internet Protocol addresses, cookies, internet tags, and navigational data collection.

The website may use Internet Protocol (IP) addresses.  An IP Address is a number assigned to your computer by your Internet service provider so you can access the Internet and is generally considered to be non-personally identifiable information, because in most cases an IP address is dynamic (changing each time you connect to the Internet), rather than static (unique to a particular user’s computer). We use your IP address to diagnose problems with our server, report aggregate information, determine the fastest route for your computer to use in connecting to our site, and administer and improve the site.

A “cookie” is a bit of information that a website sends to your web browser that helps the site remember information about you and your preferences. This website uses cookies to manage logged in users and manage the guest users’ sessions.  No personal details are stored in the cookies and the data is not available to any other sites/services.

“Navigational data” (“log files,” “server logs,” and “clickstream” data) are used for system management, to improve the content of the site, market research purposes, and to communicate information to visitors.  This website does use navigational data.

Use and Disclosure of Information

Except as otherwise stated, we may use your information to improve the content of the website, to customise the website to your preferences, to communicate information to you (if you have requested it), for our marketing and research purposes, and for the purposes specified in this Privacy Policy.

If you provide personally identifiable information to the website, we may combine such information with other actively collected information unless we specify otherwise at the point of collection.  We will take reasonable measures to prevent personally identifiable information from being combined with passively collected information, unless you consent otherwise.  In addition, we will make full use of all information acquired through the website that is not in personally identifiable form.

Access and Correction

To keep your personally identifiable information accurate, current, and complete, please contact us.  We will take reasonable steps to update or correct personally identifiable information in our possession that you have previously submitted via the website.

Security

We take reasonable steps to protect your personally identifiable information as you transmit your information from your computer to our site and to protect such information from loss, misuse, and unauthorised access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction.  You should keep in mind that no internet transmission is ever 100% secure or error-free.  In particular, e-mail sent to or from the website may not be secure, and you should therefore take special care in deciding what information you send to us via email.  Moreover, where you use passwords, ID numbers, or other special access features on the website, it is your responsibility to safeguard them.

Links to Other Websites

This website may contain links or references to other websites.  Please be aware that we do not control other websites and that, in any case, this Privacy Policy does not apply to those websites.  We encourage you to read the privacy policy of every website you visit.
