Privacy policy

Privacy Policies are usually full of legal mumbo-jumbo that applies to nobody, this policy isn’t much different, but the basic gist is that we won’t contact you unless you’ve previously asked us to, and we will never pass your e-mail address onto any other companies.

For each visitor to our Web page, our Web server automatically recognises the visitors language or country preferences. We collect the e-mail addresses of those who post comments or suggestions, or who communicate with us via e-mail. The information we collect is used to improve the content of our Web page, used to customise the content and/or layout of our page for each individual visitor and for contacting visitors.

We also use third party advertisements to support our site. Some of these advertisers may use technology such as cookies and web beacons when they advertise on our site, which will also send these advertisers (such as Google through the Google AdSense program) information including your IP address, your ISP , the browser you used to visit our site, and in some cases, whether you have Flash installed. This is generally used for geotargeting purposes (showing New York real estate ads to someone in New York, for example) or showing certain ads based on specific sites visited (such as showing cooking ads to someone who frequents cooking sites).
