Information Collection and Use

Unique Technique Ltd is the sole owner of the information collected on our web site. Unique Technique Ltd collects information at several different points on our Web site.

Web Access Log

Information is automatically logged on our server in a "Web Log" file. This is a standard server function and most standard web sites utilise log files. Our web site collects data about clickstream information (Internet protocol address, Internet service provider, platform type, date/time stamp, operating system) and http protocol information (last uri requested and browser type). The reason we use this information is to enhance our site and product offerings, maintain and secure our site and understand (in aggregate) interests of website visitors. We retain this information for an indeterminate period of time.

Clear Gifs (Web Bugs)

We collect data using a software technology called clear gifs (a.k.a. Web Beacons/Web Bugs), that help us better manage content on our site by informing us what content is effective. Our web site collects data about clickstream information (Internet protocol address, Internet service provider, platform type, date/time stamp, operating system) and http protocol information (last uri requested and browser type). The reason we use this information is to enhance our site and product offerings and understand (in aggregate) interests of website visitors. We retain this information for an indeterminate period of time.

Clear gifs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, and are used to track the online movements of Web users. The main difference between the two is that clear gifs are invisible on the page and are much smaller, about the size of the period at the end of this sentence.

Clear Gifs can work with existing cookies on a computer if they are both from the same Web site or advertising company. That means, for example, that if a person visited 'www.companyX.com,' which uses an advertising company's clear gif, the Web site would match the clear gif's identifier and the advertising company's cookie ID number, to show the past online behaviour for that computer. This collected information would then be given to the advertising company or Web site.
