SHARING OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
GENERAL WEBSITE TRAFFIC
We keep track of total accesses to our site. All information gathered in this way is generic, and we do not track any individual users from this, but only calculate how many times the Site has been accessed.
When a user sends a message to the Site, two pieces of information are automatically stamped on the message. These are, the time that the message was sent, and the Internet Provider (or IP) address it was sent from. This is done as a precaution against threatening emails we may receive that are directed towards Site staff, or anyone else. It is only ever used to find the source of a message in those extreme cases where we feel an individual’s safety may be at risk.
SOCIAL MEDIA SERVICES

We maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards to guard your personal information. However, no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. Although we use commercially acceptable means to protect your information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
