Site Management Data

For each HTTP (which is what your Web browser generates when you request a page or part of a page
from a Web site) request received, we collect and store only the following information:

  • the date and time

  • the type of browser and operating system used (if provided by the browser)
  • the URL of the referring page (if provided by the browser)
  • the object requested
  • completion status of the request
  • pages visited

Personal information submitted to us via this website will be used for the purposes specified in this privacy policy or in relevant parts of the website.

We may use your personal information to:

[(a) administer the website;]

[(b) improve your browsing experience by personalising the website;]

[(c) enable your use of the services available on the website;]

[(d) send you goods purchased via the website, and supply to you services purchased via the website;]

[(e) send statements and invoices to you, and collect payments from you;]

[(f) send you general (non-marketing) commercial communications;]

[(g) send you email notifications which you have specifically requested;]

[(h) send you [our newsletter and other] marketing communications relating to our business [or the businesses of carefully-selected third parties] which we think may be of interest to you, by post or, where you have specifically agreed to this, by email or similar technology (and you can inform us at any time if you no longer require marketing communications);]

[(i) provide third parties with statistical information about our users – but this information will not be used to identify any individual user;]

[(j) deal with enquiries and complaints made by or about you relating to the website;]

[(k) keep the website secure and prevent fraud;]

[(l) verify compliance with the terms and conditions governing the use of the website [(including monitoring private messages sent through our website private messaging service)]; and]

We use the information that we collect to measure the number of visitors to the different areas of

periodically to determine the traffic through our servers, the number of pages served, and the level
of demand for pages and topics of interest. The logs may be preserved indefinitely and used at
any time and in any way necessary to prevent security breaches and to ensure the integrity of the
data on our servers.

The use of “cookies”

To better serve our visitors, we use technology to track new and returning visitors actions while
on the website. These small files are commonly referred to as “cookies.” Our cookies
don’t not contain any personally-identifiable information.

  • Third party vendors, including Google, use cookies to serve ads based on a user’s prior visits to your website.
  • Google’s use of the DoubleClick cookie enables it and its partners to serve ads to your users based on their visit to your sites and/or other sites on the Internet.
  • Users may opt out of the use of the DoubleClick cookie for interest-based advertising by visiting Ads Settings. (Alternatively, you can direct users to opt out of a third-party vendor’s use of cookies for interest based advertising by visiting aboutads.info.)

Cookies are small files that Web servers place on a user’s hard drive. They can serve several
functions:

  • they allow the Web site to identify you as a previous visitor each time you access a site;
  • they track what information you view at a site (important to the Department of Commerce to ensure
    visitors find what they are looking for);
  • in the more advanced cases they track your movements through many Web sites but not the whole
    Web;
  • businesses use them for customer convenience to allow them to produce a list of items to buy and
    pay for them all at one time and to garner information about what individuals are buying at their
    sites;
  • advertisers use them to determine the effectiveness of their marketing and offer insights into
    consumer preferences and tastes by collecting data from many Web sites; and
  • they can be used to help a Web site tailor screens for each customer’s preference.

We will retain data the technology makes available only as long as required by law, or specific
program need.

If you are concerned about the potential use of the information gathered from your computer by
cookies, you can set your browser to prompt you before it accepts a cookie. You can remove or block
the use of web measurement and customization technologies by changing the setting of your browser to
block cookies>
