By accessing or using this website, you agree to the terms of this privacy policy. We are committed to respecting the privacy of users entering this site and we recognise the importance of the responsible use of information collected on this site. The purpose of this policy therefore is to explain to you rather than appraise you of the nature of the information we record and store about you and the way in which it is used. We reserve the right to alter the policy from time to time at our sole discretion.

To protect your privacy, we have adopted the following principles:

Further information

Our site may be linked to other relevant sites and where this is the case, this privacy policy will not apply to those other sites once you have entered them. We are not responsible for the content or the privacy practices of other sites.


On our website we may provide space for your comments and/or provide a short survey for you to complete. This is used only to help us refine the content and relevance of our website. It is not re-used or re-applied for any other purpose.




We maintain a strict “no – spam” policy. Your e-mail address will not be sold to a third party if you sign up for one of our newsletters or discussion lists on our website, you will receive only the e-mail newsletter or discussion list you have requested. You may receive on occasion an offer to sign up for a newsletter or discussion list, but you will not receive additional newsletters or discussion list mailings unless you specifically request them.

Aggregate data

In general, our service automatically gathers certain usage information about the number and frequency of visitors to our website. We only use such data as aggregate. This collected data helps us to determine how much our customers use parts of the site, so we can improve our site for your use.

IP address

We may collect and track traffic by IP address. An IP address is a number assigned to your computer when you use your browser on internet. We log this information, but this information is never linked to any personally identifying information. It is used to audit the number of visitors coming to our website.

You can choose not to receive optional information by letting us know on the registration page when you sign up for the product or service. You will be given the option to opt-out every time you receive promotional communications from us.

Privacy policy changes

If we decide to change our privacy policy, we will post those changes here so that you will always know what information we gather, how we might use that information and whether we will disclose it to anyone.
