What information do we collect?

In general, you can use our website without telling us who you are or revealing any personal information about yourself.

The information collected does not directly identify you but may be helpful to us, for example, to improve the services we offer and to maintain the security of our website.

There are times, however, when we may need information from you, such as your name and address, for example, when you fill out a form to request information about our products and services. On those occasions, we may provide you with additional information and choices about our intended use of your personal information. We may collect details of interactions with us, such as what enquiries you have made, topics discussed, what material we have provided to you, and similar information. We may also collect your communication preferences, such as whether or not you wish to receive commercial e-mails.
