We shall endeavour to use whatever information you provide when using this website in accordance with this privacy policy and in a responsible and ethical manner. This privacy policy explains the information we collect as well as how we use and protect any information you submit to us. We may amend this policy from time to time by updating this page so you can check this page occasionally to ensure you are aware of and are happy with any amendments.

Information that may be collected

Information about your computer and about your visits to this website are logged. These are information about your browser, your IP address, your general location as determined from your IP address and provided by your browser, the site from which you come, and the links followed when leaving our site. This information is also collected through cookies. We do not collect or store any kind of personal information that identifies you as an individual.

Use of this information

We use this information to understand your needs, try to provide you with a better service, and frankly just to feel the warm glow of satisfaction from knowing that someone out there is actually reading all this. The access statistics we collect contain no personally identifiable information and are intended for statistical purposes and analysis for management purposes in order to administer the website or improve performance. Your information will not be disclosed to any third party except as described in this policy unless you have given your consent to such disclosure. If you would like us to destroy information we hold about you, please let us know. We may disclose annonymized aggregate statistics about our site visitors, but these statistics will include no personally identifying information.

Specifics of individual data sources

Cookies: Cookies are small text files stored on your computer by your browser, accessible only to the websites which created them. Our website may from time to time use cookies and log files for statistical analysis, to understand user behaviour, to administer the site, to tailor the information presented to a user based on their preferences, and to improve user experience. Any information gathered by our use of cookies is compiled on an aggregate, anonymous basis. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but do also provide mechanisms to allow you to disable them and prevent them being stored. To delete or disable cookies, please see the instructions at http://www.allaboutcookies.org/manage-cookies/. Note that you may not be able to take full advantage of a website if you disable cookies. Further information about cookies can be found on the Interactive Advertising Bureau’s website http://www.allaboutcookies.org/.

Social Media: If you share our content through social media, for example by liking us on Facebook, following or tweeting about us on Twitter, or giving us a '+1' via Google Plus, those social networks will record that you have done so and may set a cookie for this purpose. In some cases, where a page on our website includes content from a social network, such as a Twitter feed, or Facebook comments box, those services may set a cookie even where you do not click a button. As is the case for all cookies, we cannot access those set by social networks, just as those social networks cannot access cookies we set ourselves.

Log Files: Like virtually all webservers, our systems automatically log some anonymous information about visitors, including IP addresses, browser type, language, the times and dates of webpage visits and which pages were accessed. The data collected does not include personally identifiable information and is used to understand user behaviour, and to administer and maintain the site, for example finding and fixing broken links.

Google Analytics: Our website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. ("Google"). The information generated by your use of our website (for example your IP address) is transmitted to and stored by Google. Google are responsible for the storage and security of those data and though we have no direct control of where they store those data it is reasonable to assume that it will be at least in the United States and possible other jurisdictions. Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of our website, compiling reports on website activity for website operators and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage. Google may also transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on Google’s behalf. Google undertake not to associate your IP address with any other data held by Google. Full information about Google’s privacy policy may be obtained from https://www.google.com/privacy.html. Google provides mechanisms to allow you to opt out of participation. For more information please see https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout/.


The security of your personal information is important to us, but remember that no method of transmission over the internet or method of electronic storage is 100% secure. While we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security. The internet is not a secure medium. We take reasonable technical and organizational precautions to prevent the loss, misuse or alteration of your personal information. We use secure server software (SSL) to offer encryption of traffic to and from our server for those who wish to use it. Remember the internet is a global infrastructure and information you provide to any web site may be transferred through countries and jurisdictions which do not have similar protections in place regarding your data and its use as set out in this policy.


We may make changes to this privacy policy from time to time. If we change our privacy policy we will post the changes on this page.
