The information is collected by us to help us monitor and manage the Website’s efficiency and capacity, to help us diagnose any problems which may be experienced by Users and to improve the Website’s capabilities. The information also enables us to gauge interest in the various areas of the Website and to assess which pages of the Website are most popular in order to make our Website more useful for Users.
