Information Use and Storage
Information that is pertinent to an application is received on a secure desktop computer which is under password control and assigned specifically to a member of staff, enabling transactional audit to be date stamped on every activity. Data files are managed and maintained under a Business Dropbox account and remotely stored to provide full disaster recovery should local equipment fail. Access to the dropbox facility is password and user restricted with full audit of user and date stamp. Any papers that are received in the offices are then returned (if requested) or stored temporarily in a locked metal cabinet prior to being scanned (to the dropbox) and being destroyed.

IP Addresses and Cookies Policy
When we provide services, we want to make them easy, useful and reliable.

These include small files known as cookies. They cannot be used to identify you personally.
We may collect information about your computer, including, where available, your IP address, operating system and browser type, for system administration and to aggregate information. This is statistical data about our users’ browsing actions and patterns, and does not identify any individual.
We might also use web tools to collect information about your browsing activities whilst on our site. In this respect the information that is provided is like the information supplied by cookies, and we use it for the same purposes.
When you visit our site we issue a ‘cookie’ or unique code that allows us to identify your computer.

The cookie is only used in relation to our website and not in relation to any other websites you may visit.

These pieces of information are used to improve services for you through, for example:
