In the course of your use of the Portal, you provide us with certain information, which may be broadly described as General Information and Personal Information.
General Information: We receive more general information from you as a result of your visits to, and use of, the Portal. This general information does not identify you personally, and can include information such as your IP address, the length of time you spend on the site, your browsing history, and other such 'General Information'.
Personal Information: We also receive more personal information about you, such as your name, email address, postal address, telephone number and various details about your company upon registration. Each time you use the Portal we will also ask you for your user name and password.
We may store or access some information (commonly known as a "cookie") on your computer when you access the Portal. This information facilitates your use of the Portal and helps us to provide you with the best level of service. For example, cookies ensure that you do not need to re-enter your details every time you visit the Portal and help us to show you advertisements which are relevant to your interests.
You can erase or block cookies from your computer if you want to (your help screen or manual should tell you how to do this), but certain services available on the Portal may not work correctly if you set your browser not to accept cookies.
