Like all website operators, we collect some potentially personally-identifying information such as Internet Protocol (IP) addresses because it is automatically logged on the servers. We do not use such information to identify visitors and do not disclose it.
Certain visitors to the website choose to interact in ways that require us to gather more personally-identifying information—e.g. to login. We collect such information only insofar as is necessary and appropriate to fulfil the requested function. We do not disclose personally-identifying information. Visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
We may collect statistics about the behaviour of visitors to the website. For instance, we may reveal how many downloads a particular document attracted but not by whom.
A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor’s computer, and that the visitor’s browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns.
We have endeavoured to check that these don’t use the information for advertising, marketing or other purposes that are not consistent with our policy outlined above.
