For example, we may collect information about the date, time and duration of visits. This information is used by us to help to administer and improve the Website.

The Website may make use of "cookies". Cookies are small text files which are placed on your hard drive by some websites to store information. The Website may utilise cookies to remember who you are each time you visit certain parts of the Website, or to manage security.
