Your privacy and our Web site
What personal information do we collect?
Web servers automatically collect certain information about a visit to a Web site, including the visitor's Internet Protocol (IP) address. IP addresses are unique numbers assigned by Internet Service Providers (ISP) to all devices used to access the Internet. Web servers automatically log the IP addresses of visitors to their sites. The IP address, on its own, may not identify an individual. However, in certain circumstances, it could be used to identify an individual using the site. For this reason, we consider the IP address to be personal information, particularly when combined with other data automatically collected when a visitor requests a web page. This information can include the name of the page you visited as well as the date and time of your visit.
Unless otherwise noted, we do not automatically gather any specific personal information from you. The only way we would get this information is if you give it to us, for example, via one of our online forms. We have forms on our site to help you interact with our office – for example, to send us an enquiry, to tell us about a privacy issue, or to make a formal complaint. We only ask for the information that we need to address your request.
Why we collect your personal information and how do we use it
In the course of providing online information or services through our Web site, we collect personal information for certain purposes. We use digital markers and web analytics to improve our site. We offer a number of online tools, such as forms for enquiries or complaints, to deliver our services. We also use certain software to ensure the security of our Web site. These uses are described in more detail in the sections below.
If you send us an email or complete an online form, we may use your personal information to respond to you. In most cases, we will delete any personal information that we did not ask for.
Personal information from emails or completed forms is collected according to applicable laws. Such information may also be used for statistical, evaluation and reporting purposes. We do not use personal information submitted via online forms to create individual profiles.
Digital markers (including cookies)
A digital marker is a small file placed on your computer by a Web site that you visit. They are stored there so that the web server can remember certain pieces of information about you. This information is used by the web server during the same or another visit to the Web site. Examples of digital markers are "cookies" or HTML5 web storage. They are often used in the collection of web analytics, to store your preferences (for example: language or location), and to manage your session if you are logged in.
They allow a Web site to recognize a previous visitor to a Web site and track what information is viewed on a site which helps Web site administrators ensure visitors find what they are looking for.
While you will be asked by our site (s) whether you authorize the use of digital markers when you first access it, you may at any time adjust your browser settings to reject digital markers, including cookies.
Web analytics is the collection, analysis, measurement, and reporting of data about web traffic and visits. This data is used to improve our Web site. It also helps us complete administrative tasks such as:
