PRIVACY POLICY

A variety of brochures and product information

This privacy statement is applicable to all the Russell Group websites. CSC respects the privacy of its Internet users and will protect that privacy as vigorously as possible. CSC does not collect information that personally identifies individuals except when individuals provide such specific information on a voluntary basis. There may be occasions where specific personal information is requested before an individual can enter certain sections of a Russell Group site. In all such cases, the Russell Group will collect only information that is voluntarily provided by the user and undertakes that such information will be kept strictly confidential. Individual information provided to the Russell Group to gain access to any Russell Group site will not be sold or made available to a third party.

The Russell Group does reserve the right, however, to perform statistical analysis of user behaviour and characteristics, in order to measure interest in and use of the various sections of its sites so as to improve design and navigation and to gather marketing information. Only aggregated data from the analysis, not individual data, will be used for this purpose. As well, users should be aware that certain non-personal information and data may be automatically collected by the Russell Group through the operation of what are called "cookies". "Cookies" are small text files that identify an individual computer's browser entering a web site. They allow the site to track that browser's movement through the site over several sessions. Through cookies, a website can recognize repeat users, facilitate the user's access to and use of the site and allow a site to track usage behaviour that will allow content improvements. The Russell Group uses cookies only for the above-mentioned purposes and will not use them to identify users or to track non-Russell Group usage.

If you do not want a cookie placed on your computer by the Russell Group, you may disable cookies altogether by modifying the Preferences section of your Netscape or Internet Explorer browser (under Edit/Preferences/Advanced). Note that it is possible that some aspects of Russell Group sites may be unavailable to you if you choose this option. If you have no problem accepting cookies, but wish to be informed of their appearance, you may turn on a warning prompt by modifying the cookie warning section in Edit/Preferences/Advanced.
