Navigation data

Over time, and in the process of normal operations, the computer systems and software procedures used for the functioning of this website acquire some personal data the transmission of which is implicit in the use of Internet communication protocols. This information is not gathered in association with identified parties, but by its very nature may, through further processing and associations with data held by third parties, lead to the identification of users.

This data is used for the sole purpose of gathering anonymous statistics on use of the site and in order to control the correct function thereof. This data may be used to ascertain responsibility in the event of hypothetical cybercrime against the site, but then only upon request by the appropriate security organisations.
