For the same reason, we may obtain information about your general internet usage by using a cookie file which is stored on the hard drive of your computer.

Storing your personal information
We store all information you provide to us on our secure servers. Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our site; any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.
By submitting your personal information, you consent to the use of that information as set out in this policy. If you provide us with sensitive information (such as your racial background or state of health), whether for Recruitment purposes, in responding to clinical negligence/personal injury/travel enquiries or for any other purpose, you expressly consent to our using that information for the purpose given as well as for equal opportunities monitoring.
Owing to the global nature of the Internet infrastructure, the information you provide may be transferred to countries outside the European Economic Area that do not have similar protection in place regarding your personal data and its use as set out in this policy. By submitting your information you consent to these transfers.
