One example of information we collect indirectly is through Internet access logs. When you access the Website, your numeric Internet address is automatically collected and is placed in our Internet access logs.

Why we collect it
We collect information about you so that we can deliver the news and current affairs forward planning service ("Service") to you and personalise the Service that we provide to you. Depending upon your selections from our data capture options, and subject to your consent, we may arrange for you to be sent information about related products and services from us and our subsidiaries. As a registered user of the Website, you may update the answers to your questions at any time by editing your profile.
Who we disclose it to
We are registered with the Information Commissioner in the UK as a "data controller" in accordance with the provisions of the Data Protection Act 1998. Further details of the registration are available at http://www.dpr.gov.uk.
Keeping information about you secure is very important to us and certain sections of the Website may encrypt data using Secure Sockets Layer ("SSL") or a comparable standard. However, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be totally secured. As a result, whilst we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information that you send to us, and you do so at your own risk.
