Our web hosting company also keeps log files.
Nearly all Web site servers and internet service hosting companies use server log files.
This includes internet service providers (ISP), internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, platform type, referring and exit pages and date/time stamp.
This information may be used to analyse web traffic and user trends, administer the site, track a user’s movement and to gather demographic information.
IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information.
Cookies are small files that a website may place on your computer's hard drive to allow a website to identify you.
For example, if you allow a website to remember your login name or password, the website places a cookie on your computer.
Cookies cannot read any other data on your hard drive.
If you don't want to have cookies placed on your hard drive or would like to be notified when a a cookie is being placed on your computer system, your Internet browser software may have tools to allow you to configure these options.
A web beacon, also sometimes referred to as a web bug, is a transparent image file that can be used to monitor your navigation around a website or a collection of sites or web pages.
Web beacons are commonly used by sites that utilise third-party services to monitor traffic and to analyse how visitors to a website interact with, and navigate, the content on the pages of a web site.
Privacy software is available that can be used to override web beacons.
We may serve third party advertisements, such as Google adverts, that may use web beacons or cookies in the course of adverts being served by them onto our website, to ascertain how many times you have viewed an advertisement.
No personally identifiable information is provided to third party advertisers for cookie or web beacon use.
We also may use DART cookies for ad serving through Google’s DoubleClick, which places a cookie on your computer when you are browsing the web and visit a site using DoubleClick advertising (including some Google AdSense advertisements). This cookie is used to serve ads specific to you and your interests ("interest based targeting").
The ads served will be targeted based on your previous browsing history (For example, if you have been viewing sites about visiting Las Vegas, you may see Las Vegas hotel advertisements when viewing a non-related site, such as on a site about hockey).
DART uses non personally identifiable information. It does NOT track personal information about you, such as your name, email address, physical address, telephone number, social security numbers, bank account numbers or credit card numbers.
