SITE VISITORSHIP DATA
Website visitorship data is information about the way a website is used that is not associated with an individual’s identity. We use anonymous data regarding online behaviour to better understand how people use our Services. If required, We may use aggregated, anonymous online traffic behaviour along with information from third parties to track usage trends and thereby improve the Services. We may also use this aggregated, anonymous information to develop reports that We may share with third party marketing partners and affiliates. The kind of information We may collect includes:
To improve the responsiveness of the Website for Our Users, We may use “cookies”, or similar electronic tools to collect information to assign each visitor a unique, random number as a User Identification (User ID) to understand the User’s individual interests using the identified computer. Unless You voluntarily identify Yourself (through registration, for example), We will have no way of knowing who You are, even if We assign a cookie to Your computer. The only personal information a cookie can contain is information You supply. A cookie cannot read data off Your hard drive. Other third party links made available on the Website may also assign their own cookies to Your browser (if you click on their ads/links), a process that We do not control.
Our web servers automatically collect limited information about Your computer’s connection to the Internet, including Your IP address, when You visit Our Website. (Your IP address is a number that lets computers attached to the Internet know where to send you data — such as the web pages you view.) Your IP address does not identify You personally. We use this information to deliver Our web pages to You upon request, to tailor Our Website to the interests of Our Users, to measure traffic within Our Website.
These cookies are intended to be automatically cleared or deleted when the User quits the browser application. You are encouraged to use the “clear cookies” functionality of Your browser to ensure such clearing / deletion, since it is impossible for us to guarantee, predict or provide for the behaviour of Your system.
The information We collect with cookies is not sold, rented, or shared with any third parties, other than for internal Website development and maintenance.

We share the information provided by the Users to any third party without obtaining the prior consent of the User in the following limited circumstances:
We take appropriate security measures to protect against unauthorized access to or unauthorized alteration, disclosure or destruction of data. These include internal reviews of Our data collection, storage and processing practices and security measures, including appropriate encryption and physical security measures to guard against unauthorized access to systems where We store personal data.
All information gathered on Our Website is securely stored within Our controlled database. The database is stored on servers secured behind a firewall; access to the servers is password-protected and is strictly limited. However, as effective as Our security measures are, no security system is impenetrable. We cannot guarantee the security of Our database, nor can we guarantee that information You supply will not be intercepted while being transmitted to Us over the Internet. And, of course, any information You include in a posting to the discussion areas is available to anyone with Internet access.
RETENTION OF INFORMATION
We retain any personal information that You may have provided to Us, for as long as You avail Our Services, and for a reasonable time thereafter.
