Information Collection

Some areas of this site may require you to submit information in order for you to benefit from the specified features (such as newsletter subscriptions, tips/pointers) or to participate in a particular activity. You will be informed at each information collection point what information is required and what information is optional. We may combine the information you submit with other information we have collected from you, whether on- or offline. We may also combine it with information we receive about you from other sources, such as publicly available information sources (including information from your publicly available social media profiles), and other third parties.

As you navigate through a website, certain information can be passively collected (that is, gathered without your actively providing the information) by using various technologies and means, such as Internet Protocol addresses, cookies, web beacons, and device information.

This site may use Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. An IP Address is a number assigned to your computer by your Internet service provider so you can access the Internet. An IP Address is identified and logged automatically in our server log files whenever a user visits the website, along with the time of the visit and the page(s) that were visited. We use your IP address to diagnose problems with our server, report aggregate information, determine the fastest route for your computer to use in connecting to our site, and administer and improve the site. We may also derive your approximative location from your IP address.

In addition, we and our service providers use cookies to gather statistical information about website usage in order to continually improve its design and functionality, understand how individuals use it, and to assist us with resolving questions regarding it.
