Privacy Policy

If you access or use this website, you are agreeing to the terms of this Privacy Policy. If you do not agree, you must not access or use the site. We may change this Privacy Policy at our sole discretion from time to time. We will notify such changes on this website. Your use of this site is subject to the Privacy Policy current at the time of such use.

We may use Personally Identifiable Information (including your name, e-mail address, and other information supplied by you to us) in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

To register on this site, a valid email address may be required. This is used to confirm privately that the email address belongs to you. We do not add it to any mailing list, unless you sign up to one, and we do not sell it to third parties. Exception: we may occasionally send system messages to registered users. You may opt out of receiving even these infrequent messages, if you wish.

This website contains links to other websites. We are not responsible for the privacy policies, actions or content of other websites.

What information do we collect?

We will collect your Personally Identifiable Information, including information such as name, email address, country and other information that you supply to us.

We do not collect financial information, including but not limited to credit card numbers, social security numbers and bank account information. If you make a donation, this will be processed by a third party who may collect such financial information subject to its own terms and conditions.

As with most websites, we also collect information automatically and using electronic tools that may not be visible to our visitors. Among other things, we may use cookie technology to recognise you and hold information from your visit. The cookies can store information such as your user name and email address, saving you from having to re-enter information each time you visit our website. Our systems automatically log visits and record users’ IP addresses and domain names.

How do we collect and store information?

This depends on what part of the website you are visiting, the activities that you choose to participate in and the services provided by us. We may ask you to provide information when you register for access to certain portions of our website, make a donation or request certain features, such as brochures, prospectuses, newsletters and news updates.

What do we do with the information we collect?

Summarised information that does not personally identify you may be used in several ways. For example, we may combine information about your usage patterns with similar information obtained from other users to help enhance our site and services, such as to learn which pages are visited most or what features are most attractive to our users.

We give a high priority to using information collected on this site responsibly. Because of this, with your prior consent, we may contact you from time to time about developments in this website and important issues in which we are involved. In each message that we send to you, we give you the opportunity to unsubscribe from future messages.

We may use your IP address to diagnose technical problems and to administer our website. We may also use your IP address to gather demographic information.

Security measures

We have security measures in place on this website to prevent the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control. Site logs are maintained in secure server areas accessible only to nominated staff.

Retention and disclosure of information that you submit

We will keep the information that you submit to us for as long as it is needed for the operation of our website and other functions to which you have subscribed. Your information may be retained for an undetermined further period of time.

If you allow the system to send you emails, for example by joining a mailing list, we may send you further emails.

It may be impossible in practice to prevent the disclosure of the information that you submit, and which is logged by the system, to third parties, either intentionally or unintentionally, if we have a need to do so to investigate a problem with the system or software, to determine the origin of any attack launched against the services or the providers of the services upon which it depends, or in response to a query from a bona-fide law enforcement agency. The information you submit may also be disclosed due to either system malfunction or intentional penetration by malicious individuals. You agree that we are not liable for any such disclosure. No warranty or claim of security is made for the database systems used in this application.

Children under the age of 13

We do not knowingly collect or solicit Personally Identifiable Information from or about children under 13 except as permitted by law. If we discover that we have received any information from a child under 13 in violation of this policy, we will delete that information immediately. If you believe that we have any information from or about anyone under 13, please contact us.
