In addition to such details, Cathexis’s web servers may automatically collect website usage information from you.

Information required for legitimate purposes

Retention Policy

There is no expiration to the retention of your personal data. Cathexis reserves the right to retain your information for the purposes outlined in this Privacy Policy as permitted by law.


Like most websites, Cathexis automatically collects information and data through the use of “cookies”. A “Cookie” is a small text file that is placed on your hard disk by a web page server, which enables a website to recognise repeat users, facilitate the user’s ongoing access to, and use, of the website, and allows a website to track usage behaviour and compile aggregate data that will allow content improvements and targeted advertising. A cookie will not provide Cathexis with personal information. Therefore, if you have not supplied Cathexis with any personal information, you can still browse the website anonymously. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, however you can modify your browser setting to decline them. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the Cathexis website or other websites you visit.

How we ensure the security of your data

The personal information we collect about you is stored in limited access servers. Cathexis maintains safeguards to protect the security, integrity, and privacy of these servers and your data. In particular, SSL and Cloudflare protect you against information theft.

IP Address

If you are connected to the internet, you will have an IP Address. The address will be automatically collected and logged as part of the connection of your computer to Cathexis’s web server and may be used to determine the total number of visits to each part of the website. If there is a security breach, the relevant IP Address will be identified by the Internet Service Provider and the user may be contacted.

Using our Mobile Application

Cathexis does not collect any personally identifiable information from clients who use our mobile application. We do send anonymous crash reports that include, among other data, the type of mobile device you are using and your operating system. These crash reports are only sent with your consent.
