Privacy Policy – Information collection and use

CAG Consultants is strongly committed to protecting the privacy of users of its interactive products and services as well as to respecting the Data Protection Acts 1984 and 1998. The information that you provide us with, or that is gathered automatically helps us to monitor our consultation and the web site service and provide you with the services that you are entitled to as a visitor to our website.

At present, we only collect non-personal information – such as IP address (the location of the computer on the internet), pages accessed and files downloaded. This helps us to determine how many individuals use our sites, how many people visit on a regular basis, which pages are most popular, and which pages are least popular. This information doesn’t tell us anything about who you are or where you live, it simply allows us to monitor and improve our service.

While we strive to keep the information that you supply directly or indirectly secure, please be aware that the Internet is not a fully secure medium.
