Recording your visit
No attempt will be made to identify individual users or their browsing activities, except in the unlikely event of an investigation, where a law enforcement agency may exercise a warrant to inspect the logs.
Some sites use 'cookies' to track a particular user's access to a site. Cookies are not used on this site to gather personal information about users.
When you look at this web site, we make a record of your visit and log the following information for statistical purposes:
- Your server address.
- Your top level domain name (for example .com, .gov, .au, .uk etc).

Recording your e-mail address
We will record your e-mail address if you send us a message. It will only be used for the purpose for which you have provided it and will not be added to a mailing list. We will not use your e-mail address for any other purpose, and will not disclose it, without your consent.
Collecting personal information
From time to time we will use electronic forms on this site to gather personal information for purposes directly related to a function or activity of the ILC. When we do so we will let you know the purpose for which the information is being collected.
We will not collect or solicit personal information via this site which would be unlawful, unnecessary or unrelated to the functions or activities of the ILC, or unfair or unreasonably intrusive.
Because there are risks associated with using the Internet as a transmission medium, when we use electronic forms to collect information we will also provide you with other options for providing the information, for example, a paper form, mailing address, or a telephone contact.
Publishing personal information
We will only publish personal information on this site if it has been collected for this purpose with your knowledge or if you have consented to the disclosure. When giving consent you should be aware that information published on this site is accessible to millions of users from all over the world, that it will be indexed by search engines, and that it may be copied and used by any web user. This means that, once the information is published on this site, we will have no control over its subsequent use or disclosure.
