How is personal information collected?

In order to improve our website, we are keen to understand better what sections of our website you find to be most useful and interesting. "Cookies" allows our website to store tokens of information in your browser. They give your browser an identifier which is used by our website while you are on it. Cookies help us to identify what areas of our website are popular based on traffic to those areas.
Most Internet browsers are set up to accept cookies. If you do not wish to receive cookies, you may be able to change the settings of your browser to refuse all cookies or to notify you each time a cookie is sent to your computer, giving you the choice whether to accept it or not.
Through our ISP and by using cookies, we can identify your web browser but not you.

The purposes for which it was provided or secondary related purposes in circumstances where you would reasonably expect such use or disclosure; or
Where you have consented to such disclosure; or
Where the National Privacy Principles authorise use or disclosure, as required or authorised under law, in circumstances relating to public health and safety and in connection with certain operations by or on behalf of an enforcement body; for example, information may be disclosed to a court in response to a subpoena or to a Government agency upon request; or
For the purpose of improving our relationship with you, or to provide you with direct marketing material such as new products, services and research that may be of interest to you, to inform you about any new products and services or special offers from time to time. However you may, by emailing email@example.com request not to receive such information and we will give effect to that request.
Document Storage and Security

Providing you with copies of the information requested;
Allowing you to inspect the information requested; or
Providing you with an accurate summary of the information held.

Providing access would pose a serious threat to the life or health of a person;
Providing access would have an unreasonable impact on the privacy of others;
The request for access is frivolous or vexatious;
The information related to existing or anticipated legal proceedings between us and would not be discoverable in those proceedings;
Providing access would reveal our intentions in relation to negotiations with you in such a way as to prejudice those negotiations;
