Active Information CollectionLike many web sites, this site actively collects information from its visitors both by asking you specific questions and by permitting you to communicate directly with us via eMail.
Some of the information that you submit may be personally identifiable information (that is, information that can be uniquely identified with you such as your full name, address, eMail address, phone number, and so on). Some areas of this site may require you to submit information in order for you to benefit from the specified features (such as eMail alerts or newsletter subscriptions). You will be informed at each information collection point what information is required and what for.
Passive Information CollectionAs you navigate through a website, certain information can be passively collected (that is, gathered without your actively providing the information) using various technologies and means, such as Internet Protocol addresses, cookies, Internet tags and navigational data collection.
This site uses Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. An IP Address is a number assigned to your computer by your Internet service provider so you can access the Internet and is generally considered to be non-personally identifiable information, because in most cases an IP address is dynamic (changing each time you connect to the Internet), rather than static (unique to a particular user's computer). We use your IP address to diagnose problems with our server, report aggregate information, determine the fastest route for your computer to use in connecting to our site, and administer and improve the site.
A "cookie" is a piece of information that a website sends to your web browser to help the site remember information about you and your preferences. "Session" cookies are temporary pieces of information that are erased when you exit your web browser window or otherwise switch off your computer.
Session cookies are used to improve navigation on Web sites and to collect aggregate statistical information.
You can set your browser to notify you when you receive a cookie, giving you the freedom to choose whether to accept it.
eMail addressIf you subscribe to our eMail alerts, we collect your eMail address. This address will only be used for keeping you informed as indicated. If you wish to unsubscribe from our eMail alert list, you can do so any time as indicated in every eMail you receive or by contacting us through firstname.lastname@example.org.
Access and CorrectionTo keep your personally identifiable information accurate, current, and complete, please contact us as about any incorrect information. We will update or correct personally identifiable information in our possession that you have previously submitted via this site.
SecurityWe take reasonable steps to protect your personally identifiable information as you transmit your information from your computer to our site and to protect such information from loss, misuse, and unauthorised access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction. You should keep in mind that no Internet transmission is ever 100% secure or error-free. In particular, eMail sent to or from this site may not be secure, and you should therefore take special care in deciding what information you send to us via eMail. Moreover, where you use passwords, ID numbers, or other special access features on this site, it is your responsibility to safeguard them.
