Similar to other commercial websites, our Website utilises a standard technology called "cookies" and web server log files to collect information about how our Website is used. Information gathered through cookies and web server logs allow us to monitor Website traffic and to personalise the content of the Website for you. 


A cookie is a very small text document, which often includes an anonymous unique identifier. When you visit a website, that site's computer asks your computer for permission to store this file in a part of your hard drive specifically designated for cookies. Each website can send its own cookie to your browser if your browser's preferences allow it, but (to protect your privacy) your browser only permits a website to access the cookies it has already sent to you, not the cookies sent to you by other sites. Browsers are usually set to accept cookies. If you choose to have your browser refuse cookies, it is possible that some areas of our Website will not function as effectively when viewed by the users. A cookie cannot retrieve any other data from your hard drive or pass on computer viruses.
