This site is not intended for use by children below the age of 13. We will not gather personal data relating to visitors we are reasonably certain of belonging to this age group. We would advise parents to talk to their children about the use of the Internet and about information submitted to websites.
Active information gathering
Similar to many other websites, this site actively gathers information from visitors by posing specific questions and by giving visitors the opportunity to communicate directly with us via e-mail, surveys and/or chat rooms. The information provided may contain personal information (i.e. information that relates solely to you such as your name, address, e-mail address, telephone number, etc.). Certain information may sometimes have to be submitted to meet a condition that allows you to benefit from specific advantages (such as newsletters, tips/instructions, order information) or participate in specific activities (such as competitions or other offers). The position where this information is gathered will provide further details about which information is necessary and which is optional.
Passive information gathering
When you are navigating a website specific information may be gathered passively (i.e. without you actually providing it) by various technological means such as Internet protocol addresses, 'cookies', Internet labels and navigation data.
This site uses Internet Protocol addresses (IP-address). An IP-address is a number allocated to your computer by your Internet Service Provider to give you access to the Internet. It is generally accepted that an IP-address does not contain personal information as it is usually dynamic (it changes every time you connect to the Internet) rather than static (belonging to a specific user’s computer). We use your IP-address to investigate problems with our server, to gather statistical information, to define the fastest connection between your computer and our site, and to manage and improve our website.
A cookie is an information item sent by a website to your web browser to enable the site to remember specific information and preferences from earlier visits for future use.
Session cookies are temporary cookies that are deleted as soon as you leave your web browser or switch off your computer. Session cookies are used to improve website navigation and gather statistical information. This site uses session cookies.
Persistent cookies are permanent cookies that are stored on your computer’s hard disk until you decide to delete them. Persistent cookies are used to recall information provided earlier (such as passwords), to find out which sections website visitors find most useful and to adapt the website to your preferences. This site does not use persistent cookies.
Internet labels (also referred to as single-pixel GIFs, clear GIFs, invisible GIFs and 1-by-1 GIFs) are smaller than cookies and provide specific information to the website server such as the IP-address and web browser type of the visitor’s computer. This site does not use Internet labels.
Navigation data (log files, server logs and clickstream data) are used for system management purposes, to improve site content, for market research purposes and to provide information to the visitor. This site uses navigation data.
Information use and transmission
Personal data you provide may be combined with information actively gathered via this site, unless specifically stated otherwise at the location where the information is gathered. We will take any reasonable measures to ensure that your personal data cannot be combined with information passively gathered via this site, unless you have given prior authorisation to do so.
Finally, we may use all non personal information gathered via this site in any possible way.
Access and correction
To ensure that your personal data is always accurate, up to date and complete we would request that you notify us of any changes (see below 'How to contact us'). We will implement all reasonable measures to comply with any update or correction requests relating to personal data gathered via this site.
We will implement all reasonable measures to protect the transmission of personal data to our site and to protect this information from loss, misuse, unauthorised access, distribution, modification or destruction. Remember, however, that Internet transactions are never 100 % safe or fault free, including the transmission of e-mails to and from this site. It is your responsibility to decide which information you send to us via e-mail. Passwords, identification numbers or other access modes applicable to this site should be treated with the utmost confidentiality.
