While using this website we may ask you to provide us with certain personally identifiable information that can be used to contact or identify you. Personally identifiable information may include, but is not limited to, your name, postal address ("Personal Information").
We collect information that your browser sends whenever you visit this website ("Log Data"). This Log Data may include information such as your computer's Internet Protocol ("IP") address, browser type, browser version, the pages of our website that you visit, the time and date of your visit, the time spent on those pages and other statistics.
The security of your Personal Information is important to us, but remember that no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage is 100% secure. While we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
As above we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect personal information and the following practices are adopted and explained for your own peace of mind:
1. All Passwords are hashed
This means that even we don't know your password and all we can ever do is check that the password you enter matches with the encryted `information` held in our database. Please use hard-to-guess passwords.
2. Some private data is `super encrypted`
Some data such as your name, address and e-Mail are not encrypted, but other more sensitive items are. This is just a trade off between utility and security and if we encrypted everything it would take some time to retrieve your data.
This `super-encryption` is known as openSSL or its full description is 256bit AES and it is what the United States government uses to encrypt information at the Top Secret level. However, any security system is only as good as its keys and the private keys or special pass-codes for these are NOT held in the public area of this web-site.
