Like most website operators, we collect non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. We collect such information to better understand how visitors use this website.
We use an open-source platform called Piwik to analyse the non-personally-identifying information gathered. From time to time, we may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of the website. For instance, we may reveal how many times a particular document has been downloaded, or say which documents are the most downloaded.
To ensure and respect your privacy, we have configured our Piwik in the following manner:
- Your Internet Protocol (IP) address, which may personally identify you, is automatically anonymised;
- If you have specified “I do not want to be tracked” in your web browser settings, this request is complied with;
- Visitors’ logs are deleted after 6 months and only aggregated reports retained.
Some visitors may choose to interact with this website in ways that requires us to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information gathered depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who use our contact form to provide their name and email address. In each case, we collect such information only as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with the website. We do not disclose personally-identifying information except as required by law.
