Such information may include your personal information. Personal information is any information by which you may be personally identifiable, such as name, email address, telephone number and any other information the website collects that is identified as personally identifiable information under an appropriate law. Those who want to receive our newsletter are required to provide necessary personal information, including name, email address, name of the organisation, and country.

  3. SIRIUS also collects information through Automatic Data Collection Technologies. The website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service. The operator of the Google Analytics component is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, United States. Web analytics is the collection, gathering, and analysis of data about the behaviour of visitors to websites. Google Analytics uses first-party cookies to gather website traffic information (how often users visit a site, what pages they visit when they do so, and what other sites they used before arriving to a site) and spreads such information to Google servers in the United States. Google Analytics does not identify individual users or associate their IP address with any other data held by Google.

We use Google Analytics to gather certain information such as your browser type or operating system, language, city and country to generate reports for system administration. We do not receive personally identifiable information from the use of Google Analytics. This information allows us to tailor our website to better meet your needs. We make no attempt to link this non-personal information with the individuals who browse this site. Google’s ability to use and share information collected by Google Analytics about your visits to this website is restricted by the Google Analytics Terms of Use and the Google Privacy Policy. You can opt out of Google Analytics tracking if you disable or refuse the cookie, disable JavaScript, or use the opt-out service provided by Google.
