We are committed to safeguarding the privacy of our website visitors; this policy sets out how we will treat your personal information.
(1) Information Collected and Stored
We will not collect any personal information about you except where it is specifically and knowingly provided by you, e.g. if you register for updates, or if you email us to provide feedback on the website. When personal information is collected, it may be used by us to corroborate your identity, to process and fulfill requests for information or help us to develop the website to make it more useful to you. Cookies are small text files sent to your computer. Although cookies contain identifying information, they do not contain any information that identifies you personally, but they allow us to recognize you when you return to our website.
If you do not want to accept a cookie when you visit our website, you should be able to change the settings in your browser to disable this function, but there might be sections of the site that you are unable to access -- in general, those sections for which you have specifically registered. If you send us an email (e.g. to request information or provide feedback on website content), the information you provide will only be used to help us gather the information requested and to respond to your message.

Under this Act, we will process personal data we hold about you in a fair and lawful manner and will keep it secure from unauthorised access by third parties. Your personal data may have to be disclosed if we are required by law or as a result of a lawful request by a governmental or law enforcement authority.
