Anonymous information collected
In order to continually improve our site and ensure its relevance to our viewers we collect anonymous click stream information from every visitor to our website, such as pages viewed, date and time, and browser type and IP numbers are used to determine domain type and geographic region.
We use a technology called ‘cookies’ for your benefit. They are used to recognize your computer, so that you are not required to enter the same information each time you log on to our site.
