Privacy and Cookies
The General Data Protection Regulation is directly effective in the UK from 25 May 2018. It develops and increases the obligations of data controllers set out under the Data Protection Act 1998. Barristers are data controllers for these purposes.
We recognise and fully respect the privacy and personal data of the visitors to this website and our clients. Protecting and maintaining your personal data is important to us.
The GDPR and related data protection laws apply to all organisations who operate in the EU. How we record, use and store your information, and how you can access your data, is explained in our Privacy Notice.
What is a cookie?
A cookie, also known as a web cookie, or browser cookie, is a data file that is stored on your computer or mobile phone by a web browser, which can collect data such as what buttons have been clicked on, how much time has been spent on a web page, and other actions you may have carried out. Cookies also have the ability to remember actions and record preferences which allow certain pages to be served in a particular way.
Some examples of cookies come in the form of session cookies, which expire as soon as the user leaves the website. Other cookies, such as third party cookies, are set from different websites, like Google, and can be present on your device for months or up to a few years.
Specifically, we use Google Analytics cookies. These cookies collect information in an anonymous form, including the number of visitors to the site, where visitors have come to the site from and the pages they visited.
