Use of Cookies

The Institute website uses “cookies” to help you personalise your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is place on your had disk by a web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.

One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you register your details with the Institute login page, a cook helps the website to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same website, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use any pages that you have customised.

You have the ability to accept or decline bookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the Institute website.

The Institute secures your personal information from unauthorised access, use or disclosure. The organisation secures the personally identifiable information you provided on computer servers in a controlled, secure environment, protected from unauthorised access, use or disclosure.
