Server Logs

In the normal course of establishing and maintaining web connections, our web servers automatically log information about visits to our web site. This includes statistical information such as a visitors' IP address, type of operating system, time and duration of visit, web pages requested, and the domain name of the server you are visiting from. These statistics are made available to our web site management team (including the OSE webmaster and OSE officers and directors) to ensure our web site provides the optimal experience for visitors.

The server log information collected does not enable us to identify visitors. However, we may review server logs for security purposes (i.e. - detect intrusions into our network). The possibility therefore exists that server log data, which contains a visitors' IP address, could in instances of criminal malfeasance be used to trace and identify individuals. In these cases, raw data logs would be shared with the appropriate investigative body. Under normal circumstances logs are retained for a maximum of 365 days.


When a web site visitor signs in to the "For Members" area we may place a small data file, called a cookie, in the browser file of your computer's hard drive. These cookies automatically identify your browser to our server whenever you interact with our web site. Most browsers automatically accept these cookies, however you can usually change your browser settings to prevent the acceptance of cookies.
