Where Kingsley Solicitors proposes using your personal information for any other uses we will ensure that we notify you first. You will also be given the opportunity to withhold or withdraw your consent for your use other than as listed above.

Accessing our websites outside the UK
All Kingsley Solicitors websites are published in the UK by Kingsley Solicitors.
WHAT IS A COOKIE?
A cookie is a small amount of data, which often includes a unique identifier that is sent to your computer or mobile phone (referred to here as a “device”) browser from a website’s computer and is stored on your device’s hard drive. Each website can send its own cookie to your browser if your browser’s preferences allow it, but (to protect your privacy) your browser only permits a website to access the cookies it has already sent to you, not the cookies sent to you by other sites. Many sites do this whenever a user visits their website in order to track online traffic flows.
Cookies record information about your online preferences and allow us to tailor the websites to your interests. Users have the opportunity to set their devices to accept all cookies, to notify them when a cookie is issued, or not to receive cookies at any time. The last of these means that certain personalised services cannot then be provided to that user and accordingly you may not be able to take full advantage of all the features on Kingsley Solicitors’ websites. Each browser is different, so check the “Help” menu of your browser to learn how to change your cookie preferences.
Information supplied by cookies can help us to analyse the profile of our visitors and help us to provide you with a better user experience.
Kingsley Solicitors also use a number of independent measurement and research companies. They gather information regarding the visitors to Kingsley Solicitors site on our behalf using cookies, log file data and code which is embedded on our website. Kingsley Solicitors uses this type of information to help improve the services it provides to its users. Clear Kingsley Solicitors strictly requires that third parties do not use any information for their own business or other purposes.
