The European Law Group and its members (“We”) are committed to ensuring that your privacy is protected. This policy (together with the terms contained in our Legal Notice and any other documents referred to on it) sets out the basis on which any personal data we collect from you, or that you provide to us will be processed by us.
This policy also provides information on how you can instruct us if you prefer to limit the use of your personal information as well as the procedures that we have in place to safeguard your privacy. Please read this policy carefully to understand our views and practices regarding your personal data and how we will treat it.
IP addresses and cookies
We may collect information aboutyour computer, including where available your IP address, operating system and browser type, for system administration and internal analysis. This is statistical data about our users’ browsing actions and patterns, and does not identify any individual.
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. Cookies contain information that is transferred to your computer’s hard drive. They help us to improve our Site and to deliver a better and more personalised service. They enable us to:
(a) estimate our audience size and usage pattern;
(b) store information about your preferences, and so allow us to customise our Site according to your individual interests;
(c) speed up your searches; and
(d) recognise you when you return to our site.
Storing your personal information
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.
We aim to update our Site regularly, and may change the content at any time. If the need arises, we may suspend access to our Site, or close it indefinitely. Any of the material on our Site may be out of date at any given time, and we are under no obligation to update such material.

You have the right to access information held by us about you. Any access request may be subject to a fee to meet our costs in providing you with details of the information we hold about you.
