What personal data we collect and why we collect it
We use technology which allows us to track visitors to the Website so that we can understand how you and other visitors use it. For example, we use this technology to gather the following statistics:
- your total number of visits;
- your total number of page views;
- how many pages you clicked on;
- your location;
- the length of time you spent on the Website;
- where you arrived from (either directly, via a referring site or search engine);
- your connection speed;
- what browser /operating system /screen resolution you have.
We are committed to using our best efforts to maintaining the security of your personal information. Although we use our best efforts to protect the security of your personal information and our system, due to the inherent open nature of the Internet, no transmission via the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result of this and other factors beyond our control, we cannot guarantee the security of the information that you transmit to or through our Website. Therefore, you assume that risk by using the Website.
