Cookies Policy

This Cookie Policy was last updated on 25 August 2020.

Please read this Cookie Policy carefully as it contains important information on who we are and how we use cookies on our website.  This policy should be read together with our Privacy Notice which sets out how and why we collect, store, use and share personal information generally, as well as your rights in relation to your personal information and details of how to contact us and supervisory authorities if you have a complaint.

Who we are

This website is operated by Hunters Law LLP (also trading as Hunters) of 9 New Square, Lincoln’s Inn, London WC2A 3QN.  Any reference to “we”, “our”, or “us” means Hunters Law LLP.

Our Website

This Cookie Policy relates to your use of this website.

Throughout our website we may link to other websites for your information.  Some will be owned and operated by certain trusted third parties to make additional services available to you.  These other third party websites may also use cookies or similar technologies in accordance with their own separate policies.  For privacy information relating to these other third party websites, please consult their policies as appropriate.

What are Cookies?

A cookie is a small text file which is sent to your device (eg computer, smartphone or other electronic device) when you use our website.  Some are used only whilst you are looking at the site (session cookies) and some can be left there for longer and sometimes are useful when you visit the site again (persistent cookies).  Persistent cookies may be left on your device for some time, for example up to two years (until you either delete them or the technology provider has set an expiry date for them to be deleted).

We use cookies and other identifiers on our website to help us in a variety of ways and they fall generally into three categories, with examples of what they actually do, as follows:

Essential

(strictly necessary)

To make the website work effectively in terms of general operation and use.

These are strictly necessary to operate the site and do not require consent.

Removing them is likely to affect the core functionality of the site.

Analytics

(for performance)

To monitor site usage, eg how many visits and which pages are popular.

They are not strictly necessary but help us improve the site focus / content.

Removing them might prevent the use of some of the site functionality.

Targeting

(for

advertising)

To target a particular market audience based on a profile of internet user as determined from their country location, search preferences and internet use.

These are not strictly necessary but help us to target our marketing efforts and allow advertising banners on our site based on user interest / searches.

Removing them will not alter the use or functionality of the site.

Some of the information which cookies allow us to collect will be aggregated or statistical which means that we will not be able to identify you individually.  However, some will identify your electronic device’s IP address, your country location and the operating system and browser type you are using.

For further information on cookies generally, including how to control and manage them, visit:

UK Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) https://ico.org.uk/your-data-matters/online/cookies/
All About Cookies (information available in several languages) https://www.allaboutcookies.org/

Consent to use cookies and changing settings

We will ask for your permission (Consent) to place cookies or other similar technologies on your device, except where they are Essential cookies without which the site cannot function properly.

You can withdraw any consent to the use of cookies or manage any other cookie preferences.

Third party access to the cookies

The cookies we use will only be accessed by us and those third parties named in the table below for the purposes referred to in this Cookie Policy.  Those cookies will not be accessed by any other third party, unless allowed by law.

Targeting and Advertising

We use cookies or other identifiers to deliver more targeted marketing content based on a person’s likely interests shown by what their internet activity and searches are.  This helps us to see what our potential customers are looking for when they search for details of legal services and to promote our firm to a potentially relevant target audience.  This means that without identifying anyone individually, technology providers using cookies can deliver more personalised marketing content (for example based on your use of our site) and we can track the user traffic from adverts which are the most effective in drawing new clients to our business.

We may at times use Google as a provider of targeting cookies for advertising depending on future advertising campaigns we wish to run.  This may involve communications displayed in the form of banners and other adverts on this or other websites, possibly based on user interests.  This is what is called a “re-targeting” technique which means ads are displayed which are tailored to the user’s interests and behaviour, including those detected outside this website.

You can opt out of Google’s use of cookies or device identifiers by visiting Google’s Ad Settings or control the use of device identifiers using your own mobile device settings.  Alternatively, you can out of any third party vendor’s use of cookies by visiting the Network Advertising Initiative Opt Out Page or make use of Your Online Choices website to opt out of being tracked by a variety of advertising networks.
