Privacy What is personal data?

  1. "Personal Data" is any information which identifies you. We only collect information which you give us directly, and this information is stored securely for the precise purpose you gave us that information.

  2. This information will remain under our control, and will never be sold or given to any other party for marketing purposes.

What are cookies? Cookies are text files, used by your computer's browser, that store visitor session data. Cookies, by themselves, do not identify the individual user. Cookies are commonly used on the Internet and do not harm your system.

Like most large websites, we use cookies to help us provide a better service to our customers.

Many users choose to enable cookies but shut off the prompt that tells them when a cookie is being activated on their browser. In other words, the cookies work in the background without any disruption in service. Users can access their own cookie file on their hard disk and read what kind of information is being stored in it, and by which sites. The file can then be deleted.
