Privacy Statement

User Anonymity and Personal Information

Access to all files on this website's web servers are logged. These log files do not capture personal information but do capture more abstract information such as the user's IP address.

Aggregated analysis of site traffic is used to monitor website usage allowing us to measure, for example, overall popularity of the site and typical user paths through the site.

We make no attempt to identify individual users (other than as part of the normal operation of the site during your visit). You should be aware, however, that access to web pages will generally create log entries in the systems of your ISP or network service provider. These entities may be in a position to identify the client computer equipment used to access a page. Such monitoring would be done by the provider of network services and is beyond our responsibility or control.

We do, however, reserve the right to attempt to identify and track any individual who is reasonably suspected of trying to gain unauthorised access to computer systems or resources operating as part of our web services.

All log file information collected by us is kept secure and no access to raw log files is given to any third party.

Use of Cookies

This website does not store any information that would, on its own, allow us to identify individual users of this service without their permission. Any cookies that may be used by this website are used either solely on a per session basis or to maintain user preferences. Cookies are not shared with any third parties.
