What Information will Kingsley Solicitors collect?

When you sign up to participate in or receive a service from any Kingsley Solicitors website, such as newsletters, we may ask for personal information about you. This can consist of information such as your name, e-mail address, postal address or telephone number. Different website pages may ask for different personal information.

By entering your details in the fields requested, you enable Kingsley Solicitors to provide you with the services you select.

Please note that sometimes on particular website pages we will require you to provide additional personal information. When we do this we will specify further on these website pages why we are collecting your information and how we will use it.

Kingsley Solicitors also uses cookies and collects IP addresses (an IP address is a number that can uniquely identify a specific computer or other network device on the internet). We use analysis software to look at IP addresses and cookies for the purpose of enhancing your user experience. This information is not used to develop a personal profile of you and the log files are regularly purged.

How will Kingsley Solicitors use the information?

For “service administration purposes”, which means that Kingsley Solicitors may contact you for reasons related to the service you have signed up for, (e.g. to provide you with password reminders or to notify you that a particular service has been suspended for maintenance); to contact you about a submission you have made to the websites, including any content you provide.

To personalise the way Kingsley Solicitors content is presented to you

IP addresses are used to identify the location of users, the number of visits from different countries and also to block disruptive use; and

to analyse and improve the services offered on our websites e.g. to provide you with the most user-friendly navigation experience.

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.

Cookie Policy

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.

During the course of any visit to Kingsley Solicitors’ websites, the pages you see, along with a cookie, are downloaded to your device. Many websites do this, because cookies enable website publishers to do useful things like find out whether the device (and probably its user) has visited the website before. This is done on a repeat visit by checking to see, and finding, the cookie left there on the last visit.

HOW DOES KINGSLEY SOLICITORS USE COOKIES?

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.
