1. Information collected
We may collect, store and use the following kinds of personal data:
– information about your computer via Google Analytics and your IP address about your visits to and use of this website including your IP address, geographical location, browser type, referral source, length of visit and number of page views.

What are cookies?
A cookie is a small file which is placed on your computer’s hard drive when you visit a website. They’re widely used to make websites work, or work more efficiently, as well as to provide information to site owners, such as which pages you find useful or not. A web browser normally deletes session cookies when it quits. A cookie doesn’t give us access to your computer or any information about you, other than the data you choose to share with us.
Cookies are used only as an identification number for repeated site view statistics. This doesn’t breach your personal security and you may turn your cookies off if you don’t wish us to gather this information from you.
How to manage your cookies
Cookies are sent to your browser by a website and stored in the cookies directory of your device. To check and update your cookies settings, you’ll need to know what browser you’re using and what version you have. You can usually find this out by opening the browser (just as if you’re going to use the internet) and clicking on ‘Help’ then ‘About’.
To find out how to allow, block, delete and manage the cookies on all standard web browsers, go to All About Cookies and select the browser and version you’re using. You’ll also find information about how to delete cookies from your computer.
