From time to time we also conduct web visitor surveys which store a cookie on visitors' computers. The cookie is used to identify web visitors who have already been offered the survey so that they are not prompted to participate a second time.
When you visit our website we record your computer's internet protocol (IP) address to help us diagnose any problems with our computer network. Any information logged is not given to any third party companies, and is kept solely for the reasons stated above. It is not linked to personally identifiable information so all visitors to our site remain anonymous.
Cookie: a temporary text message stored on your computer when you visit a website to indicate if a user has visited a site previously. A cookie can also be used to identify users and personalise their visit by customising web pages for them, for example by welcoming them by name next time. If you have any reason to enquire about the information held about you, please refer to the 'Access to information' webpages.
Please note that if you are completing an electronic form and select the 'Complete later' function, your information will be retained for a period of 90 days (from the last time you access the form), it will then be permanently deleted and you will no longer be able to retrieve the form.
For security reasons if forms are left inactive for 30 minutes or more the application will time out and no longer be valid.
