The information we collect
We may, for example, keep a record of your name, mailing address, home telephone number, mobile telephone number, email address and preferences.
Every time you connect to our website, we store web server logs which show your unique IP address. This identifies what you have looked at; whether the page request was successful or not; and which browser you used to view the pages. This data will only be used for statistical purposes and personalisation purposes only and helps to inform us about the usage of the site and how many hits we receive.
Although currently not in use, we may use ‘cookies’ to identify you when you visit our website to build a demographic profile. A ‘cookie’ is a small piece of information sent by a web server to a web browser, which enables the server to collect information back from the browser. ‘Cookies’ are frequently used on websites and you can choose if and how a cookie will be accepted by configuring your preferences and options in your browser. If we use ‘cookies’ in the future we will not cross-match information collected through ‘cookies’ with other personal information to determine who you are or your email address. However if you disable ‘cookies’ you may not then be able to access all functions of our website. Find out more about the use of ‘cookies’ at http://www.aboutcookies.org/
