We collect information directly from you anonymously through our use of “cookies”.

Most websites use cookies in order to work efficiently and they help us understand how visitors use our website, so we can develop and improve its design, layout, content and function.

Cookies are small text files that are placed on your computer’s hard drive by websites that you visit. They save and retrieve pieces of information about your visit to the website, for example, how you entered the site, how you navigated through the site and what information and documentation was of interest to you. This means that when you go back to a website, it can give you tailored options based on the information it has stored about you from your last visit.

We also use cookies to store your personal registration information when you log in so you do not have to provide it again on subsequent visits.

A cookie in no way gives us access to your computer or any information about you, other than the data you choose to share with us. You can accept or decline cookies, but most web browsers automatically accept them so you will need to change your browser settings if you wish to decline them.
