Information provided by you: We receive and store any information you enter on our web site or provided by you in any other way. You may choose not to provide certain information, but then you might not be able to take advantage of the many features on our web sites. We use the information that you provide to continually improve our service offering to you by analysing the information and corresponding trends and the like that may be found.

Information automatically gathered: We receive and store certain types of information whenever you interact with the web site. For example, like many web sites, we use “cookies”, and we obtain certain types of information when your web browser accesses our web sites. The “cookies” often transfer security related information, so this facility must be activated on your browser whilst accessing our web sites or they may malfunction.
E-mail communications: To help us make e-mails more useful and interesting, we often receive a confirmation when you open an e-mail from us. We also compare our customer list to lists received from other companies, in an effort to avoid sending unnecessary messages to our customers or to grow our customer base.
Information from other sources: To improve our service offering, we might receive information about you from other sources and add it to our information. The more information we have, the more we can tailor our service offering to meet market expectations.
We use a third party service offered by Google called Remarketing on this website. Remarketing allows us to serve our advertisements to users who visited our website when they visit other websites that are part of Google’s advertising network. This helps us connect with these potential customers while they browse other websites. You can learn more about Remarketing on Google’s explanatory website: https://support.google.com/adwords/answer/2454000.
Remarketing is an anonymous service and does not identify you personally – it simply identifies the pages visited on our website by recognising the unique identifying number of the cookie on your computer.
