Cookies

UMPG uses cookies. A cookie is a small text file that can be stored on your computer's hard drive. It may be stored and updated at various times as you access the Website.

We never use cookies to retrieve information from your computer which was not originally contained in the cookie.

Certain non-personal information about Users is recorded by the standard operation of UMPG's internet servers. Examples of this type of information include the type of browsers being used, its operating system and the domain names (not e-mail addresses, where possible) of Users.

Information will only be so transferred in circumstances where it is necessary to achieve the purposes set out in this Terms of Use or the purposes made known to Users at the time information is collected.

Forwarding Web Pages
