We do collect analytical data on our website, but the amount of it depends on what you are doing.
If you are not logged in, we only collect small amounts of ANONYMOUS data. We only collect a small amount of data regarding which pages have been viewed and at what times of day. Your IP address is never collected by us and we can not link or trace the data back to you - it is entirely anonymous. This data is used so we can see which pages of our public front site is being viewed by people in order to understand how we can make the relevant, important data easier to access. The data is not associated with you and we will not "customise" or change your experience with that data collected on a personal level.

When you log in, we use a cookie to store a unique, encrypted key on your computer. This allows your computer to verify itself on each page change and web request, allowing you to stay logged in.

Personal data (or any other data, with the exception of this unique key) is never stored in a cookie on our site.
Because this cookie tells us who you are logged in as, you can not use the log in or any accounting services of our website if you do not have cookies enabled - it simply doesn't work and there is no alternative.

A third party is a company other than us.
We never operate with third party companies. We will never sell or give any of your data to any company, unless in an unlikely event that it is required for legal reasons.
