Passive Information Collection
By using this site, it is likely that you will passively submit anonymous information to this site and its servers. This information submission occurs due to technologies such as cookies, Internet tags or web beacons. You may be able to set your browser to alert you when cookies are being transmitted or you may be able to disable their transmission altogether. Consult your web browser instruction manual to learn how to do this.
Data about the pages you view and click to and click from will also be collected in this site’s log files. The web browser that you use automatically transmits to this site this anonymous information. This includes but is not limited to items such as the URL of the website you visited prior to this site and the Internet Protocol (IP) address and the browser version and operating system that your computer is currently using.
The different items of anonymous information that are collected passively by this site and its servers may be used either in isolation or in combination in order to compile and analyse usage trends, improve the service to visitors. Anonymous information will not be combined with personally identifiable information collected elsewhere on the site unless you have consented.

Technologies for passive information collection
Cookies are small pieces of information that are transmitted between websites and browsers in order to help identify users and their preferences. These may take the form of session cookies which are only temporarily (i.e. they are deleted once you leave the site or close your browser) saved to help administer the current visit or session of the individual, and persistent cookies which are saved to help administer the current and future visits or sessions of the individual. An example where session cookies are used may be when a site keeps the visitor “logged in” for a specified length of time before automatically logging them out. The session is “kept open” via the use of a session cookie. An example where a persistent cookie is used may be to determine if a visitor has previously viewed a specific message or alert. The cookie is sent to indicate to the server that the visitor has viewed the message and does not therefore need to see it again. Another example of a persistent cookie is to help customize a site to suit the visitors preferences, as specified by the visitor. A persistent cookie may hold personally identifiable information about the user but should only do this if the user has registered or consented to the storage of such information.
Most web browsers have functionality which allow the user to accept or reject cookies or to alert the user when one is about to be transmitted and received between the browser and the server (or vice versa).
Internet Protocol (IP) and IP addresses are key to the functioning of the internet. Each time you use the internet, your computer is assigned an IP address (a set of numbers, similar to a postal code). Generally, the IP address used by your computer is assigned by the Internet Service Provider or network administrator, who may be able to combine this information with information that you have previously provided. This means that usage of the internet is rarely anonymous.
“Internet tags”, “invisible GIFs” and single-pixel GIFs are similar to cookies and are used by web servers to help gather information such as the IP address, browser type and operating system on the visitor’s computer. This information is often used to compile statistics and usage metrics about a site, its pages and visitors.
Log files and server logs are used by servers to gather information about the usage of a site. Again, this information can be compiled to allow statistics and usage metrics about a site, its pages and visitors.
We encourage you to be well educated about the different technologies used on the internet to gather information about website visitors and their online behaviour. Helpful information about this topic can be found on the internet via search engines.
