We are committed to safeguarding the privacy of our website visitors. This policy sets out how we will treat your personal information.
- What information do we collect?
We may log, collect, store and use the following personal data:
- information about your computer and about your visits to and use of this website (including your IP address, geographical location, browser type, referral source, length of visit and number of page views).
- information relating to any transactions carried out between you and us on or in relation to this website, including information relating to any purchases or donations you make.

A cookie consists of information sent by a web server to a web browser, and stored by the browser.
The information is then sent back to the server each time the browser requests a page from the server. This enables the web server to identify and track the web browser.
We may use "persistent" cookies on this website. If so they will be used to enable our website to recognise you when you visit;
Persistent cookies will remain stored on your computer until deleted, or until they reach a specified expiry date.
Most browsers allow you to refuse to accept cookies. (For example, in Internet Explorer you can refuse all cookies by clicking "Tools", "Internet Options", "Privacy", and selecting "Block all cookies" using the sliding selector.) This will, however, have a negative impact upon the usability of many websites, including this one.

- Security of your personal data
We will take reasonable technical and organisational precautions to prevent the loss, misuse or alteration of your personal information.
We will store all the personal information you provide on secure (password protected) servers.
