Cookies and Privacy Policy

We are committed to safeguarding the privacy of our website visitors; this policy sets out how we will treat your personal information.

(1) What information do we collect?

We may collect, store and use the following kinds of personal data:

(a) information about your computer and about your visits to and use of this website (including your IP address, geographical location, browser type, referral source, length of visit and number of page views);

(b) information relating to any transactions carried out between you and us on or in relation to this website, including information relating to any purchases you make of our services; and

(c) information that you choose to send to us (including your name, email address, telephone number and message).

(2) Cookies

Our website uses cookies. We will ask you to consent to our use of cookies in accordance with the terms of this policy when you first visit our website.

A cookie is a file containing an identifier (a string of letters and numbers) that is sent by a web server to a web browser, and stored by the browser. The identifier is then sent back to the server each time the browser requests a page from the server.

Cookies can be used by web servers to identity and track users as they navigate different pages on a website and to identify users returning to a website.

Cookies may be either "persistent" cookies or "session" cookies. A persistent cookie consists of a text file sent by a web server to a web browser, which will be stored by the browser and will remain valid until its set expiry date (unless deleted by the user before the expiry date). A session cookie, on the other hand, will expire at the end of the user session, when the web browser is closed.

We use both session cookies and persistent cookies on this website.

We will send to you the following cookies:

(a) ASP.Net cookies; and

(b) A cookie to remember your opt in to receive cookies.

Cookies (a) are session cookies, whereas cookies (b) are persistent cookies.

Cookies do not contain any information that personally identifies you, but personal information that we store about you may be linked, by us, to the information stored in and obtained from cookies.

We may use the information we obtain from your use of our cookies for the following purposes:

(a) to recognise your computer when you visit our website;

(b) to track you as you navigate our website;

(c) to improve the website's usability;

(d) to analyse the use of our website; and

(e) in the administration of this website.

In addition, we use Google Analytics to analyse the use of this website. Google Analytics generates statistical and other information about website use by means of both session cookies and persistent cookies, which are stored on users' computers. The information generated relating to our website is used to create reports about the use of the website. Google will store this information. Google's privacy policy is available at: http://www.google.com/policies/privacy/.

Most browsers allow you to reject all cookies, whilst some browsers allow you to reject just third party cookies. For example, in Internet Explorer you can refuse all cookies by clicking "Tools", "Internet Options", "Privacy", and selecting "Block all cookies" using the sliding selector. Blocking all cookies will, however, have a negative impact upon the usability of many websites. You may wish to visit http://www.aboutcookies.org, which contains comprehensive information on how to delete and control cookies on popular browsers.

Except as provided in this privacy policy, we will not provide your information to third parties.

(5) Security of your personal data

We will take reasonable technical and organisational precautions to prevent the loss, misuse or alteration of your personal information.

We will store all the personal information you provide on our secure password and firewall protected servers.

Of course, data transmission over the internet is inherently insecure, and we cannot guarantee the security of data sent over the internet.
