We know, for instance, how many visitors there are to each website, when they visited, for how long and to which areas of our website they went. We do not share this information with other companies. You or any other individual cannot be identified from the information we share as the data is aggregated and anonymised.

* The Operating System platform that you may be running (e.g. Macintosh or Windows)
* Search words or terms that are passed from a search engine
