Collection of Information

Through this website, we collect certain information about visitors, even when they are not logged in. This includes, but is not limited to, your IP address, the URLs of the websites and pages you visit (before, during and after your visit to the website), the times and dates of such visits, information about the computer hardware and software you use and other information that may be available. Also, we may place "cookies" on your computer to recognize you on return visits to enable it to enhance your browsing experience, as well as to collect additional information about you. You may adjust your browser settings or use other means to prevent cookies from being placed on your computer, but doing so may result in reduced functionality and a less personalized browsing experience. The website does not currently respond to "do not track" signals from browsers, although we may amend this policy if and when there is a standard mechanism it can use in the future to respond to these signals.

We may ask you to provide certain additional information about you, including your name, contact information, the organization you come from and certain other information that it may use to identify you. If you choose not to provide such information, you may not be permitted to access certain website features, content or services.

We use the information that it collects about you to improve your browsing experience by personalizing its website to your interest, and also to help it select content and services that you may find interesting and useful. Information about the content you visit and services you use may be used alone or in conjunction with information collected from other users to help us tailor the website and other products and services to better suit the needs and interests of you and other users.

Information that you provide may also be used as part of our efforts to keep you informed about events, and selected products and services that may be of interest to you. In some cases, we may contact you with information from carefully selected third parties, but we will not provide information to third parties for such purposes. In other cases, your information might be shared with a third party pursuant to a process that contemplates such sharing and which you knowingly initiate.

We reserve the right to disclose any information that we obtain through the website to appropriate governmental or regulatory authorities if required by law or any governmental agency.

Additional Services

From time to time, we may offer additional services through the website. In some situations, additional services may be subject to alternative terms of use (as identified by us), and your use of any such services will constitute your acceptance of such alternative terms of use. Unless otherwise stated, such alternative terms of use shall apply to supplement this Privacy Policy and in the context of any conflicting terms, this Privacy Policy shall govern with respect to this website, content and services, excepting only those services which are expressly covered, and then only to the extent so expressly covered, by such alternative terms.
