Cookies
A 'cookie' is a small file supplied by our web server and stored by the web browser software on your computer when you access this site.

Logging

When a user logs into this service, the username will be registered in an administration log held securely on the website. All download activity is also logged in the administration log to create a record for the user to access to know what articles they have downloaded. The log is also used by the website administrator to manage any potential misuse or abuse by users of the service offered. The log is only accessible by the authorised registered administrators of the website.

In order to provide visitors with greater value, some of our pages may provide links to various third party websites. In no case is subscriber information provided to the third party sites. However, keep in mind that many sites do attempt to capture visitor information when you browse those sites. Once you leave our site, we are not able to alert you should another site attempt to gather information from your browser.
