(B) Online Applications and Quotes
When a website user browses a website each page is requested and displayed as the result of a conversation between the web browser (your computer) and the web server (our computer). Each different time the browser asks the web-server for a web page the web-server responds as if it is a new conversation.
The cookies hold a unique code to identify who is using the application form pages. This means that more than one person can use the application system at the same time and the server will not get confused who it is talking to. We only hold the session cookie details for the duration of the application and the cookie is only used for the application/quote process.
We ensure that the data you send to us during the online application process is encrypted in transit (except where it is made from the Met Police Aware Intranet where encryption is not allowed) and stored safely on our servers (which are completely separate from the website). During an application/quote you may have answered a data protection question. We will ensure that we treat your personal data in lines with your response to the data protection question.
