The information the Foundation may gather, and how it will be used

A. Personal data
Most of our services do not require any form of registration so you can visit our website without having to provide your personal data. The Foundation gathers personal information (information that can be used to identify the user, such as the name, address, phone number or e-mail address) only when asked for or when data is given to us voluntarily through this website. We may use your information to respond to your inquiries; to improve our service levels and the content of our website; to provide you with useful information, product news and updates; to keep you up to date on news about the work of the Foundation (including newsletters); to ask you for your opinions about our products and services, and for our own internal purposes. The Foundation also collects details that does not permit direct identification of the user but gives information about your interests and activities that could be used to make inferences about you and, in some cases, identify you indirectly:

a) Cookies
The Foundation's web sites may use cookies, that is small text files placed on your computer by a web server. Cookies help the web site to function better and more accurately analyse how the site is being used. A web server may for example set a cookie that remembers your computer so that all special settings or preferences selected can be recalled whenever you revisit the site. The Foundation does not directly connect cookies with the personal data you give. You can accept or decline cookies. Most browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies, or receive a warning before a cookie is kept. See you web browser instructions or the Help function for these functions. If you choose to decline cookies, you will lose some of the interactive features of this website.
Our site may use "web beacons" - small code strings that can carry an image on a web page message or an e-mail for re-transferring data to us. Web beacons can be used to enable the Foundation, or third parties acting on behalf of the Foundation, to communicate with cookies on the computer. The information gathered via web beacons may also contain IP addresses, as described below, as well as information on how a visitor responds to an e-mail message (e.g. the time that an e-mail stays open). The Foundation may use the information collected by web beacons for a variety of reasons, including but not only for site traffic reporting, unique visitor counts, and content optimisation.

b) Internet Protocols () "IP" addresses
An IP is made up of numbers automatically assigned to the computer each time access is made to the provider’s Internet services or through the local area network (LAN) or the Wide Area Network (WAN). When you go to a website, your computer is identified by the automatically assigned IP address. The Foundation, or third parties acting on behalf of the Foundation, may collect IP addresses for the purposes of maintaining communication with visitors moving to the site, for enhanced user experience. Normally we do not use this information to develop personal profiles of visitors and the log files are regularly deleted. Any visit to this website will therefore be logged but the visitor remains normally anonymous to us.
