The Organisation uses such identifiable information collected to continually improve the content of its web site and to offer the seekers products and services that best meet their preferences, needs, or desires. In so using this information, the Organisation is able to refine their web site and enhance the benefits it offers.
Please keep in mind that if you directly disclose personally identifiable information or personally sensitive data through the Organisation’s public message boards, this information may be collected and used by other users outside the control of the Organisation.

The Organisation web site uses “cookies” to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you and can be read only by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.
One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize the Organisation’s pages or register with the Organisation’s site or services, a cookie helps the Organisation recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This allows the Organisation to deliver messages and material more specific to your needs and to simplify the process of recording your personal information, such as your billing address, shipping address, and so on. When you return to the same Organisation Web site, the information you previously provided can be retrieved so you can easily use the Organisation’ features that you customized.
You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the many valuable interactive features of the Organisation’s services or web sites you visit.
Security of Your Personal Information
The Organisation makes every effort to secure your personal information from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. The Organisation protects the personally identifiable information you provide on computer servers in a controlled, secure environment, protected from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. When personal information (such as a credit card number) is transmitted to other Web sites, it is protected through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol.
