Personal information that this website collects and why we collect it.

This website collects and uses personal information for the following reasons:


1. Site visitation tracking

Like most websites, this site uses Google Analytics (GA) to track user interaction.


We use this data to determine the number of people using our site, to better understand how they find and use our web pages and to track their journey through the website.


Although GA records data such as your approximate geographical location, device, internet browser and operating system, none of this information personally identifies you to us.


GA also records your computer’s IP address which could be used to personally identify you but Google does not grant us access to this. We consider Google to be a third party data processor (see section 6.0 below).


GA makes use of cookies, details of which can be found on Google’s developer guides.


For your information, our website uses the Wix implementation of GA.


Disabling cookies on your internet browser will stop GA from tracking any part of your visit to pages on this website.
