Definition

Personal data comprise all information relating to an identified or identifiable individual’s personal and material circumstances and includes, for example, such information and details as your name, your address or other postal address, your telephone number or your email address.

Data storage

We have taken extensive technical and organisational measures to ensure that your data are protected against potential risks, such as unauthorised admission or access, unauthorised perusal, modification or dissemination, or loss, destruction or misuse. However, as no Internet transmission can ever be entirely secure, we cannot guarantee that no unauthorised access whatsoever will occur.

  • domain from which the user accessed the website
  • date and time of access
  • IP address of the computer accessing the website
  • web page(s) visited
  • volume of data transferred, browser type and version, operating system used
  • notification as to whether access was successfully obtained

We analyse these log file data sets in an anonymised form with a view to improving our service offering and making it more user-friendly, identifying and rectifying any errors, and managing server capacity utilisation.

The information generated by such cookies regarding your use of this website is generally transmitted to a Google server in the US, where it is then stored.
