What are Cookies and How Cookies are used

1. Our own cookies
These cookies are required for the operation of our Website. If you do not want these cookies to be set, you should not access or use our website for any purpose.
2. Social Website Cookies
Our website contains links to Facebook, Twitter and other similar social media sites that enable you to “Like” or share the content of our website with other people via social media.

More Information About Cookies.
It may be that your concerns around cookies relate to so called "spyware." Rather than switching off cookies in your browser you may find that anti-spyware software achieves the same objective by automatically deleting cookies considered to be invasive.
Protection of Information. We make reasonable efforts to protect Personal Information and do not disclose any Personal Information about our clients or former clients to any third party, except (i) as may be required by applicable law, (ii) in connection with the legal services we render to them, or (iii) if prior permission is obtained. We do not sell, rent, distribute or otherwise make Personal Information commercially available to any third party.
We maintain reasonable physical, electronic and procedural safeguards to guard your Personal Information. We restrict access to Personal Information about our clients to our personnel who need to have the information to provide services to you. This may include providing access to third party service providers. For example, we may outsource information and document management, office support, technology and IT services, word processing, photocopying, and translation services. Where we outsource functions associated with servicing clients to third party service providers, we have agreements in place with such third party service providers together, where applicable, with technical and organizational measures to protect the confidentiality and security of any Personal Information shared with them.

Subject to applicable law (for example, if you are located in the European Union with rights under the General Data Protection Regulation), you may have one or more of the following rights with respect to Personal Information: the right to request access to such information; the right to request correction of such information; the right to request deletion or erasure of such information; the right to request restrictions on our processing or use of such information; the right to object to our use under certain circumstances; the right to withdraw consent under circumstances when consent is required for any use of such information, and the right to obtain such information in portable form. If you have any concerns relating to your data privacy or the use or possession of your Personal Information, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org in the first instance as we may able to resolve any concerns. In certain circumstances in any European Union member state, you may have the right to lodge a complaint with the applicable data protection authority.
