Automatically-Collected Information: We automatically collect certain information about you and the device with which you access the Website. For example, when you use the Website, we will log your IP address, operating system type, browser type, referring website, pages you viewed, and the dates/times when you accessed the Website. We may also collect information about actions you take when using the Website, such as links clicked.

Cookies: We may log information using cookies, which are small data files stored on your browser by the Website.

OUR USE OF COOKIES

A cookie is a file containing an identifier (a string of letters and numbers) that is sent by a web server to a web browser and is stored by the browser. The identifier is then sent back to the server each time the browser requests a page from the server. Cookies may be either “persistent” cookies or “session” cookies: a persistent cookie will be stored by a web browser and will remain valid until its set expiry date, unless deleted by the user before the expiry date; a session cookie, on the other hand, will expire at the end of the user session, when the web browser is closed. Cookies do not typically contain any information that personally identifies a user, but personal information that we store about you may be linked to the information stored in and obtained from cookies.

We use cookies for the following purposes:

(a) Authentication: We use cookies to identify you when you visit our website and as you navigate our website;

(e) Analysis: We use cookies to help us to analyze the use and performance of our website and services;

HOW WE PROTECT YOUR DATA

This site uses two factor authentication for administrators to log in and we work hard to protect all data which could be used to identify you. Unfortunately, no data transmission can be 100% secure. Whilst we employ precautions to ensure the security of your information and work hard to ensure third parties we use do the same, we are not responsible for the actions of third parties.

If there are any data breaches on our site, we will immediately notify you.
