Whenever you visit our website, as for any other website, you are providing the following information about your visit:
- Your Internet Protocol (I.P.) Address, which is a label assigned to each device connected to a computer network and which, in the case of a home user, can determine your approximate geographical location and / or your Internet Service Provider. In the case of a business, the I.P. address can most times identify the company from where a visit has originated, but will not identify the user. In all these cases, an I.P. address cannot be used to identify an individual.
- In case your visit to our website originated through a link on another website, your visit will include information about this referrer site.
- Cookies may be saved on your computer. These are small files that track, save and store information about your interactions and usage of our website. This allows the website, through its server to provide you with a tailored experience within this website and save any information (such as a password) which you may need later.
- This website uses tracking software to monitor its visitors to better understand how they use it, but this software will not store, save or collect personal information.
