Put simply, this includes data which either by itself or with other data held by us or available to us, can be used to identify you.
We are part of the Aspen Group which has databases in different jurisdictions. We may transfer your data to one of the Group’s databases outside your country of domicile. These other countries will either have different data protection laws than your country of residence or they will not have data protection laws. They may not be deemed by the European Commission as providing adequate protection for Personal Data. Even if the country to which the data is to be transferred does not require us to provide adequate protection for your data, we will nonetheless seek to ensure that data transfers to Aspen Group databases in that country are adequately protected.

- We use technology to track which pages of our Site visitors view. We also use technology to determine which web browsers our visitors use. This technology does not identify you personally, it simply enables us to compile statistics about our visitors and their use of our Site.
- Certain pages of this Site may contain hyperlinks to other pages of it. We may use technology to track how often these links are used and which pages on our Site our visitors choose to view. Again this technology does not identify you personally — it simply enables us to compile statistics about the use of these hyperlinks.
We use this anonymous data to improve the content and functionality of this Site and consider areas and subjects which are attracting interest so that we can focus our e-mail updates (for those that wish to receive such communications). This allows us to better understand our Site visitors’ interest areas generally and therefore to improve our Site and products and services we offer.
