A cookie is a small amount of data, often including a unique identifier, sent to the browser of your computer, tablet or mobile phone ("device") from our website's server. It is stored on your device (in memory or on a hard drive). Each website can send its own cookie(s) to your browser if your browser's preferences allow it.

On the NatSIP website, our cookies record information about your font size preferences, and the fact that you have logged in to our site. You can set your device’s preferences to accept all cookies, notify you when a cookie is issued, or not receive cookies at all.

Each browser is different, so please check the "Help" menu of your browser to learn how to change your cookie preferences.2. We log downloads and page views
As a logged-in user, when you visit a page, or download a document from the document library, we log this. We record the date, time, name of the document you downloaded or page you visited, and other information, including the user name, IP address, and information about which web browser you use.
We collect this information so that we can see which items are most popular, and where they are used. We also analyse browser information to ensure that we can fully support the devices our users use.
3. We will subscribe you to our mailing list automatically when you register
You will receive occasional emails from us. If you want to unsubscribe from these emails, then please follow the 'unsubscribe' link at the bottom of the email.
4. We may contact you for feedback
We work hard to ensure that documents in the library are useful and relevant to the SI community. After you have downloaded one of our documents, we may contact you to ask for feedback about how useful the document was and how it could be improved.
5. We use our server logs to solve problems
If you report a problem with the web site to us (for example by contacting our helpdesk), we will often look at the logs to follow the trail of what you have done so that we can identify and fix the problem as quickly as possible
