2. Web Site Use Information

Similar to other commercial websites, our website utilises a standard technology called "cookies" (see explanation below, "What Are Cookies?") and web server log files to collect information about how our website is used. Information gathered through cookies and Web server logs may include:

  • Your server address;
  • your top level domain name;
  • the date and time of your visits;
  • the pages accessed;
  • time spent at our website;
  • the websites visited just before and just after our website; and
  • the type of browser you are using.

What Are Cookies?
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. However, if you would prefer not to receive cookies, you may alter the configuration of your browser to refuse cookies. If you choose to have your browser refuse cookies, it is possible that some areas of our site 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.

How Do We Use Information We Collect from Cookies?
As you visit and browse our website, the site uses cookies to differentiate you from other users. In some cases, we also use cookies to prevent you from having to log in more than is necessary for security. Cookies, in conjunction with our Web server's log files, allow us to calculate the aggregate number of people visiting our website and which parts of the site are most popular.

This helps us gather feedback to constantly improve our website and better serve our clients. Cookies do not allow us to gather any personal information about you and we do not intentionally store any personal information that your browser provided to us in your cookies.

IP Addresses
IP addresses are used by your computer every time you are connected to the Internet. Your IP address is a number that is used by computers on the network to identify your computer. IP addresses are automatically collected by our web server as part of demographic and profile data known as traffic data so that data (such as the Web pages you request) can be sent to you.

How Do We Use the Information That You Provide to Us?
Broadly speaking, we use personal information for the purposes of administering our business activities and responding to your requests. When we collect information we use it to maintain the most up to date possible database of our client base, their contact details and trade requirements. We collect it from the relevant person or authority on an appropriate basis.

We do not use that information as a direct marketing profile, but do use it for the purpose of distributing newsletters, administering our business and providing information updates which we believe are in the interests of good communication.

We aim to ensure that the information we hold is accurate, complete and up to date and that appropriate security measures are adhered to in respect of that information and its protection. We apply the principles of privacy and protection of sensitive information in all our dealings.

Sharing and Selling Information
We do not share, sell, lend or lease any of the information that uniquely identify a subscriber (such as email addresses or personal details) with anyone except to the extent it is necessary to process transactions or provide services that you have requested.

We do not advise personal/business details or government identifiers to other parties, other than when the law required us to do so.

What About Legally Compelled Disclosure of Information?
We may disclose information when legally compelled to do so, in other words, when we, in good faith, believe that the law requires it or for the protection of our legal rights. We may also disclose account information when we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be violating our Terms of Service or to protect the safety of our users and the Public.

How Can You Access and Correct Your Information?
You may request access to all your personally identifiable information that we collect and maintain in our database by emailing or writing to us. If you find that your information is incorrect, you may request that we update your details by email or in writing.
