Anonymous information collected
In order to continually improve our website and ensure its relevance to our viewers we collect anonymous clickstream information from every visitor. This may include pages viewed, date, time, browser type and IP numbers that determine domain type and geographic region.
We use a technology called 'cookies' for your benefit. They are used to recognise your computer so that you are not required to enter the same information each time you log on to our website. A message is given to a web browser by a web server. The message is then stored by the browser in a text file called cookie.txt. Each time the browser requests a page from the server, this message is sent back. A cookie's main objective is to identify users and personalise their visit by customising web pages for them, for example by welcoming them by name the next time they visit the same website. A website using cookies will usually invite you to provide personal information such as your name, email address and interests.
