The Grow Asia websites use cookies for anonymous visitor tracking. The contracted web server assigns each visitor a unique numerical ID. All requests for pages are tagged with that ID, and by analyzing log files, Grow Asia can determine how many unique visitors used the site.

Grow Asia does not know the identity of a person based on the numerical ID. The cookies used on our websites do not contain any personal information about visitors, nor are they used to look up personal information about visitors. Even if you have entered information about yourself in one of our registration forms, we do not relate that information to the cookie data.
