We collect certain information about users who visit this site, including name and email address (only required when leaving a comment), user actions and click paths, domain name/IP addresses and browser types, as well as other information. We use this information mainly to track referrals and analyse user behaviour. IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information.
A cookie is a small file which asks permission to be placed on your computer’s hard drive. Once you agree, the file is added and the cookie helps analyse web traffic or lets you know when you visit a particular site. Cookies allow web applications to respond to you as an individual. The web application can tailor its operations to your needs, likes and dislikes by gathering and remembering information about your preferences.
We use traffic log cookies to identify which pages are being used. This helps us analyse data about webpage traffic and improve our website in order to tailor it to customer needs. We only use this information for statistical analysis purposes and then the data is removed from the system.
Overall, cookies help us provide you with a better website, by enabling us to monitor which pages you find useful and which you do not. A cookie in no way gives us access to your computer or any information about you, other than the data you choose to share with us.
You can choose to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. This may prevent you from taking full advantage of the website.
Links to other websites
This website contains links to other websites of interest. However, once you have used these links to leave this website, you should note that we do not have any control over that website. Therefore, we cannot be responsible for the protection and privacy of any information which you provide whilst visiting such websites and such websites are not governed by this privacy statement. You should exercise caution and look at the privacy statement applicable to the website in question.
Occasionally people forget they asked to receive email from us. Please be assured that we have no interest in sending email to people who don’t want it. We never, ever, spam. If you receive email from us (that originates from our server) and wish to unsubscribe then please follow the instructions provided at the bottom of every email.
If you receive email that purports to be from us but didn’t originate from our server, then it’s likely an email spammer is spoofing/forging the ‘From’ field/header in the email in question. There is very little that can be done about this other than to employ a good quality spam filter. See this website for more information about spoofed/forged email.
Controlling your personal information
We will not sell, distribute or lease your personal information to third parties unless we have your permission or are required by law.
