In addition to this, if you use any Minster Law mobile applications to access your claim information, these applications capture information such as your IP address, gender, browser type and device type.  We capture this information as part of our data security measure, but also to ensure that we test our applications to cover all browsers/ devices being used, and to pinpoint user interface errors.  More information about how we use your data can be found within our Privacy Notice.
