Gathering data

When you visit this site some information is automatically collected. For example, your computer's operating system, Internet Protocol (IP) address, access times, browser type and language, and/or the site you came from may be logged automatically. We collect information about usage and activity on our sites and for this reason may link your IP address to other personal information, such as your login ID or information you provided at registration.

Each page visited within this site is recorded in a log file. The contents of the log file are analysed to determine how many visitors we serve, which pages are most frequently viewed and where visitors connect from. This is statistical data about our users’ browsing actions and patterns, and does not identify any individual.

We also collect information when you choose to submit it to us. Throughout this site, for example, we provide opportunities to report a concern and register interest in becoming a member. When we collect this type of information, we will notify you of the reason we are asking for information and how this information will be used.
