Privacy Policy

 

Your privacy is very important to us. Below, you can find the policy we have developed for collecting, disclosing, using and protecting your personal information.

Our website uses cookies.  By using our website and agreeing to this policy, you consent to our use of cookies in accordance with the terms of this policy.

We will never without your express consent provide your personal information to any third parties for the purpose of direct marketing.

 

(1)      What information do we collect?

We may collect, store and use the following kinds of personal information:

(a)      information about your computer and about your visits to and use of this website

(b)      information relating to any transactions carried out between you and us on or in relation to this website, including information relating to any purchases you make of our goods or services

(c)      information that you provide to us for the purpose of registering with us

(d)      information that you provide to us for the purpose of subscribing to our website services, email notifications and newsletters

(e)      any other information that you choose to send to us or decide to put online on this website, for example in any comments section

 

(2)      Cookies

A cookie consists of information sent by a web server to a web browser, and stored by the browser. The information is then sent back to the server each time the browser requests a page from the server. This enables the web server to identify and track the web browser.

We use Google Analytics to analyse the use of this website.  Google Analytics generates statistical and other information about website use by means of cookies, which are stored on users’ computers.  The information generated relating to our website is used to create reports about the use of the website. Google will store this information.  Google’s privacy policy is available at: http://www.google.com/privacypolicy.html. Our advertisers may also send you cookies.

We publish Google Adsense interest-based advertisements on our website.  These are tailored by Google to reflect your interests.  To determine your interests, Google will track your behaviour across the web using cookies.  You can view, delete or add interest categories associated with your browser using Google’s Ads Preference Manager, available at: http://www.google.com/ads/preferences/.  You can opt-out of the Adsense partner network cookie at: http://www.google.com/privacy_ads.html.  However, this opt-out mechanism uses a cookie, and if you clear the cookies from your browser your opt-out will not be maintained. To ensure that an opt-out is maintained in respect of a particular browser, you should use the Google browser plug-in available at: http://www.google.com/ads/preferences/plugin.

Most browsers allow you to reject all cookies, whilst some browsers allow you to reject just third party cookies.  For example, in Internet Explorer you can refuse all cookies by clicking “Tools”, “Internet Options”, “Privacy”, and selecting “Block all cookies” using the sliding selector.  Blocking all cookies will, however, have a negative impact upon the usability of many websites.

Again, we will not without your express consent provide your personal information to any third parties for the purpose of direct marketing.

Except as provided in this privacy policy, we will not provide your information to third parties.

 

(5)      Security of your personal information

We will protect personal information by reasonable technical and organisational security safeguards against loss or theft, as well as against unauthorized access, misuse or alteration.

Of course, data transmission over the internet is inherently insecure, and we cannot guarantee the security of data sent over the internet. In addition, personal information that you submit for publication on the website will be published on the internet and may be available, via the internet, around the world.  We cannot prevent the use or misuse of such information by others.
