Collection of Information
You can generally visit our Website without revealing any personally identifiable information about yourself. However, to access certain options we may ask you to provide personally identifiable information, and you understand that any information you provide is being provided voluntarily. Information we may request includes, without limitation, your contact information (name, address, phone number, email address), age, gender or username/password.
Like many companies, we also use common tracking tools to collect information. The tools we use might include cookies and GIF files. We might engage third parties to assist us with our passive tracking activities. These could include vendors who help us deliver information to you, or vendors that help us operate our Website.
A “cookie” is a small electronic file that collects information when someone visits a website. A cookie can identify the pages that are being viewed, and this can assist us to select the pages that the viewer sees. Some cookies only exist whilst viewers are online, but “persistent” cookies – which are not session-based – remain on the viewer’s computer, so that he or she can be recognized as a previous visitor when he or she next visits our Website. This allows us to collect information about a viewer’s browsing habits whilst on our Website which can be useful in assisting us to monitor and improve our services.
Our Website uses Google Analytics cookies to provide us with information to help us better understand how users enjoy our Website. These cookies are: utma, utmb, utmc and utmz. The information they provide us with is not shared with third parties (other than for use within Google Analytics), nor do we take steps to specifically identify any user or their personal information.
In addition to using cookies, we might also use GIFs and other web tools to collect information about your browsing activities whilst on our Website. In this respect the information that is provided is similar to the information supplied by cookies, and we use it for the same purposes.
Any information that we acquire about you using cookies, GIFs or other web tools is subject to the same restrictions and conditions as any other information we collect about you.
Information we collect through common tracking tools might include the website browser or type of mobile device you are using, whether you have previously visited our Website, IP addresses, ISP information, or the sites from which you arrived or to which you leave after you visit us, and from this information we can derive the identity of the visitor’s geographic location and Internet Service Provider.
