Non-Personal Information

If you visit this web site and read or download materials, such as information concerning our services or information bulletins and newsletters, the information we receive is statistical only and will not be used to identify you personally. That information may comprise computer information, session and click-stream data and cookies.

A short note about cookies – a cookie is a very small text file placed on to your computer when you visit a web site. Cookies are used to enhance the online experience – for example, “session cookies” are created at the beginning of the user’s search session and discarded at its conclusion. The cookie is not used to collect or store information about the user, only to allocate a temporary identifier to the search session. Without the session identifier, the user might lose the entire search context each time a new page is visited during a session.

Most web browsers recognise when a cookie has been offered or placed on your computer. Most web browser software enables you to decide whether you wish to reject or accept the cookie. Check with your software supplier if you are not sure. If cookies are disabled, you may find this web site provides less than desirable functionality and speed, for the reasons described above.
