Privacy Statement

CDG is committed to ensuring your privacy is protected. This privacy policy explains how we use the information we collect about you, how you can instruct us if you prefer to limit the use of that information, and procedures that we have in place to safeguard your privacy.

Collection and use of information

We may use aggregate information and statistics for the purposes of monitoring website usage to help us develop the website and our services and we may provide such information to third parties. We reserve the right to disclose individually identifiable information to comply with applicable laws and lawful government requests, or to protect ourselves or our users.

Security of information

You should be aware that we cannot guarantee the security of any data you disclose, as the Internet is not a secure medium. However, we have put in place various security procedures as set out in this policy. Firewalls, intrusion detection, restricted access over secure channels and 24 hours a day monitoring are just some of the measures used to ensure the security of the site.

Cookie Policy

What is a Cookie?

Cookies record information about your online preferences and allow us to provide the most relevant website experience. Users have the opportunity to set their devices to accept all cookies, to notify them when a cookie is issued, or not to receive cookies at any time. The last of these means that certain personalised services cannot then be provided to that user and accordingly you may not be able to take full advantage of all of the website features. Each browser is different, so check the “Help” menu of your browser to learn how to change your cookie preferences.

A cookie is a small amount of data, which often includes a unique identifier that is sent to your computer or mobile phone (referred to here as a “device”) browser from a website’s computer and is stored on your device’s hard drive. Each website or third party service provider used by the website can send its own cookie to your browser if your browser’s preferences allow it, but (to protect your privacy) your browser only permits a website or third party service provider to access the cookies it has already sent to you, not the cookies sent to you by other sites or other third party service providers.
