What information we collect and how we use it
As is true of most websites, our web server gathers certain not personally identifiable information automatically, for example your Internet Protocol (IP) address. This site also uses "cookies", which are small text files that are stored on a user's computer. Cookies are not computer programs, and can't read other information saved on your hard drive. They cannot be used to disseminate viruses, or get a user's personal details. We use session cookies and persistent cookies. A session cookie is deleted when you close you browser. A persistent cookie remains on your hard drive for an extended period of time.
These cookies do not contain any personally identifying information but allow our website to recognize you each time you return and make it easier for you to navigate our site. You can remove persistent cookies by following directions provided in your Internet browser's "help" file. You can find more information on this subject at www.aboutcookies.org, including information on how to reject cookies. However certain parts of our website will not work as intended without cookies.
We use this information, which does not identify individual users, to analyse trends, to administer the site, to track users' movements around the site and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole.
Any personal information you give us if you mail us or when writing a comment will only be used by us to respond if required.
