It is important for you to appreciate that the website provides links to other independent sites.

Changes to this policy
In common with most websites, this site automatically logs certain information about every request made.
This information is used for system administration, and for producing usage statistics. The logged information
may be kept indefinitely. Otherwise the logged information is not passed to any third party except if required
by law. If a request is sent via a proxy the log file will show the proxy's address.
Online forms are provided on this site, but the use of these tools is entirely anonymous or, where appropriate,
use is possible with any assumed name, and not IP logging, nor a subscription service.
The only third party data collection is by Google Analytics, and Google Adsense, please consult their Privacy statements for further information.
The following data is automatically logged for each request:
• The name or network address of the computer making the request. Note that the data recorded may be that of a web proxy rather than that of the originating client;
• The date and time of connection;
• The HTTP request, which contains the identification of the document requested;
• The status code of the request (success or failure etc.);
• The number of data bytes sent in response;
• The contents of the HTTP Referrer header supplied by the browser;
• The content of the HTTP User-Agent header supplied by the browser;
Computers on which the website is hosted keep records of attempts (authorised and unauthorised) to use them for purposes other than access to the web server. This data typically includes the date and time of the attempt, the service to which access was attempted, the name or network address of the computer making the connection, and may include details of what was done or was attempted to be done.
