When You visit our Website You may provide us with two types of information:

Website use information collected as You and others browse our website, including, without limitation, collecting aggregated data about the pages You visit and dates and times that You visit them.
We use all reasonable commercial endeavours to maintain the highest standards of security, however the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. So, whilst we will do our best to protect Your Information, we cannot ensure the security of Your data transmitted to our Website. Any transmission is at Your own risk. Once we have received Your Information we will use such procedures and security features as we consider appropriate in relation to the nature of such Information to prevent unauthorised access.
Similar to other commercial websites, our Website utilises a standard technology called “cookies” (see explanation below, “What Are Cookies?”) and web server logs to collect information about how our Website is used. Information gathered through cookies and web server logs may include the date and time of visits, the pages viewed, time spent at our Website, and the websites visited just before and just after our Website. We, our advertisers and ad serving companies may also use small pieces of code called “web beacons” or “clear gifts” to determine which advertisements and promotions users have seen, how users responded to them and to serve advertising.
A cookie is a very small text document, which often includes an anonymous unique identifier. When You visit a website, that site’s computer asks Your computer for permission to store this file in a part of Your hard drive specifically designated for cookies. Each website can send its own cookie to Your browser if Your browser’s preferences allow it, but (to protect Your privacy) Your browser only permits a website to access the cookies it has already sent to You, not the cookies sent to You by other sites.
As You browse on our Website, the Website uses its cookies to differentiate You from other users. Cookies, in conjunction with our web server’s log files, allow us to calculate the aggregate number of people visiting our Website and which parts of the Website are most popular. This helps us gather feedback in order to improve our Website constantly and better serve our users. Cookies do not allow us to gather any personal information about You and we do not generally store any personal information that You provided to us in Your cookies.
We use Your Information in the following ways:
We may pass Your Information to other carefully selected third party organisations:
Email is not recognised as a secure medium of communication. For this reason, we request that You do not send private information to us by email. However, if you contact us by email and/or respond to us via email, we will take this as your giving your informed consent to be contacted by us via email.
You may request access to all Your Information that we collect online and maintain in our database, by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
