A. Use of Cookies

A cookie is a small text file which is placed onto your computer (or other electronic device) when you access our website. We use cookies and other online tracking devices on this website to:

  • carry out research and statistical analysis to help improve our content and services and to help us better understand your requirements and interests; and 

  • make your online experience more efficient and enjoyable.

The information we obtain from our use of cookies will not usually contain your personal data. Although we may obtain information about your computer or other electronic device such as your IP address, your browser and/or other internet log information, this will not usually identify you personally. In certain circumstances we may collect personal information about you - but only where you voluntarily provide it (eg. by completing an online form) or where you use our legal services.

In most cases we will need your consent in order to use cookies on this website. The exception is where the cookie is essential, meaning that it is required to ensure that the website functions properly. 

B. Consent

Sometimes, other third-party platforms such as Facebook and Twitter place cookies on our website without our consent (for example when you are logged in as a user of those third party platforms which "follow" your internet movements). We do not authorise third-party cookies placed without our consent and are not responsible for unauthorised third-party cookies.  Indeed, all third-party cookies suppliers are solely responsible for the cookies they set on our website.
