Our personnel are required to respect the confidentiality of personal information and the privacy of individuals. We take reasonable steps to protect personal information held from misuse and loss and from unauthorised access, modification or disclosure, for example by use of physical security and restricted access to electronic records.

The GSH program uses 'transient cookies'. Cookies are pieces of information that a website transfers to your computer's hard disk when you open the website. Cookies by themselves do not identify you but they do identify your web browser.
When you access the GSH program our server makes a record of your visit and logs the following information: your browser's internet address; the date and time of your visit to the site; the pages you've accessed and documents downloaded; the type of browser you are using; the number of bookmarks created; the last viewed date; and the time of your visit.
The information collected by the GSH program is used for statistical purposes and system administration tasks to maintain this service.
Because the GSH program uses 'transient cookies' your computer does not retain the information delivered in the cookies once you leave the GSH program website. When you close your browser, the transient cookie set up by GSH program is destroyed and no information is retained which could identify you or your browser next time you log onto the GSH program.
