What information we collect
We may collect the following information from each user of this site:
Statistical information (IP address and hostname, browser version etc.).
Search terms used.
Other information submitted in forms.
In general, this information cannot be used to identify you. However, there are certain circumstances where you could be identified:
Where you browse from a server listed in DNS tables, to which only you have access.
Where you access the site from a domain that the site owner associates with you, and you are the only one from that domain to access the site in a given timeframe.
In both cases, we would require prior knowledge to identify the user. However, we will make no effort to identify any user of this site.
What we use the information for
Any information collected will be used only for analysing usage patterns, so as to guide us in improving the site. Specifically, no information collected will be communicated to any other business or agency.
