In addition to the abovementioned data Full Members are required to provide the name of the company, their profession, address, phone number, and fax number.

How we protect your personal information
All personal data you enter is encrypted with secure server software (SSL) that encodes the information before your web browser software sends it to us. The SSL software decodes the data only after it reaches our server, meaning hackers can't snatch any of your personal information while it is in transit. Once the data reaches our site, the same state-of-the-art security software we use to guard all of our organisation’s essential data protects your personal data as well.

How we use "cookies"
As you probably know, "cookies" are small pieces of information that some websites store on your computer's hard drive when you visit them. Web sites use cookies to identify members so they don't have to enter a user ID and password upon each visit. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies but allow you to modify security settings so you can approve or reject cookies on a case-by-case basis. Even if you do not use cookies, you can still access all of the features on our site by logging in manually with each visit.

Obtaining your consent
By using our Site, you give permission to collect information about the pages served to you as an anonymous user for the purpose of calculating aggregate site statistics. If you register, you authorise us to use information you provide to personalise the information we deliver to you and to use your demographic information when calculating aggregate customer data. As a registered member, you give our agents permission to send you e-mails related to the subscription e-mail services to which you subscribe.

If you are under the age of 18, you must not provide your name, e-mail address, or any other identifying information without the consent of your parent or guardian, or as otherwise provided for by applicable law.

Any changes to our privacy policy will be posted on this page so that you are always aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances we disclose it.
