In addition, we may use third-party services such as Google Analytics that collect, monitor and analyse these IP addresses, browser types (Firefox, Chrome etc.), browser versions and various pages that users are visiting.

Cookies are files with small amount of data, which may include an anonymous unique identifier. Cookies are sent to your browser from a website and stored on your computer’s hard drive.
Like many sites, we use “cookies” to collect information. You can instruct your browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. However, if you do not accept cookies, you may not be able to use some portions of our Site.

International Transfers of Personal Data
The nature of our business is such that personal data may be transferred outside of the countries where you reside and we operate. Accordingly, parts of our Service may be hosted on servers located in countries outside of ours and your own. The laws applicable to the protection of personal data in additional countries may be different from those in ours and yours and hence, by registering with the Service, you consent to your personal data being transferred outside your own country.
The security of your Personal Information is important to us, but remember that no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. While we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security. We do not warrant or represent that personal data about you will be protected against, loss, misuse, or alteration by third parties.
