We receive data from you when you provide it to us.  We may request additional information from you which we may append to a data record.

Data from Third Party Sources
We may receive data from third parties who you provide data to, who then forward such data to us.  We may also collect information about you from public or private third party sources to create or supplement our records.

Data from Your Use of the Site
We will automatically collect information each time you visit the Site.  This includes technical information (IP address, browser type and version, time zone settings, browser plug-in types and versions, operating system, platform, etc.), information about your visit (URLs, clickstream data, navigational data, page response times, download errors, length of visits to certain pages, page interaction information (such as scrolling, clicks and mouse-overs), methods used to browse away from the page, etc.) and location data (country location by IP address, etc.).

Cookies and Other Technologies
We may enable the Site to use cookies and/or other similar technologies to collect and store information about you and your browsing history.  If enabled, these typically involve pieces of information or code that the Site transmits to you and which are stored in your browser, on your computer’s hard drive, or on a mobile device.  Cookies and similar technologies sometimes track information in order to remember you and your browsing preferences.

Most browsers automatically accept cookies and similar technologies, but if you prefer, you can configure your browser to prevent the acceptance of cookies and similar technologies.  Your help screen or manual will tell you how to do this.  Please be aware that configuring your browser to reject cookies may prevent you from being able to access all features within the Site and may result in a poor Site experience.

If enabled, we will use these cookies and other technologies on the basis that they are necessary for the performance of a contract with you, or because using them is in our legitimate interests (where we have considered that these are not overridden by your rights), and, in some cases, where required by law, where you have consented to their use.

If enabled, the Site may use both session cookies (cookies stored on your device during a single visit and which are automatically deleted as soon as you close your browser) and persistent cookies (cookies that remain on your device until they are set to expire or you choose to delete them from your browser’s cache). If enabled, we may use the following types of cookies:

Strictly Necessary Cookies
These cookies are required for the proper operation of the Site.  They include, for example, cookies that enable you to log into the Site.

Analytical/Performance Cookies
These cookies allow us to recognize and count the number of visitors and to see how visitors move around the Site.  This helps us for our legitimate interests of improving the way the Site works, for example, by facilitating users easily finding the content they are looking for.

Functionality Cookies
These cookies are used to recognize you when you return to the Site.  This enables us, subject to your choices and preferences, to personalize our content, greet you by name and remember your preferences (for example, your choice of language or region).

Targeting/Advertising Cookies
These cookies record your visit to the Site, the pages you have visited and the links you have followed.  If enabled, we will use this information, subject to your choices and preferences, to make the Site more relevant to your interests.  We may also share this information with third parties for advertising purposes.  We may also work with advertising networks that gather information about your use of the Site and other websites you visit.  This may result in you seeing our advertisements on other websites.  For more information about how to turn this feature off see below or visit www.networkadvertising.org.

Disabling Cookies
The effect of disabling cookies depends on which cookies you disable but, in general, the Site may not operate properly if all cookies are switched off.  If you only disable third party cookies, the Site should still operate properly.

If you want to disable cookies on the Site, you need to change your website browser settings to reject cookies. How you can do this will depend on the browser you use.  There are many online resources which can help you determine which cookies are acceptable to you and which are not.
