Privacy, cookies and data protection
At Stewarts Law, we are committed to protecting your privacy. Set out below is an explanation of how we use information about visitors to this site.
Collection of information
The information that we collect and store during normal use of the site is used to monitor and analyse how parts of the site are used. Such use does not result in any personally identifiable data being collected or stored.
You have the option on certain pages within this site to submit personal information to us by email and online enquiry forms. The information you provide us about yourself will be shared with Stewarts Law employees or passed on to the relevant department within Stewarts Law to the extent necessary to accommodate your request. You must consent for us to share your identifiable information with third parties, who would be bound by confidentiality. We may also contact you for feedback on the service you received from us.
How we use information
We store the information you provide about yourself in a secure database in order to provide you with the information, products, and/or services you request. The information is stored for the lifetime of the database unless you request that it be removed.
How you can access or correct your information
By submitting your personal information through this website, you shall be consenting to it being processed in the manner described above. You may update or remove the information you provided to us by contacting us at email@example.com.
To protect your privacy and security, we will also take reasonable steps to verify your identity before updating or removing your information.
In order to improve the quality of our website and services, we may from time to time send your computer what is known as a "cookie". Cookies are text files that identify your computer to our server. Cookies in themselves do not identify the individual user, just the computer used.
The EU e-privacy Directive 2009 (the "Directive")
Under the Directive which amended the Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulations 2003 we can store cookies on your computer if they are essential to the operation of this site but for all other "non essential" cookies we need your permission to do so. We use two types of cookies on our website, further details of which are set out below:
We use "session cookies" on this website which are necessary for its functionality. They store an abstract unique ID for each session and remain in the cookie file in your browser during the session but are erased when you close your browser.
Like many other sites we use a popular programme called Google Analytics which is a web analysis service. It provides us with anonymous information about how visitors use our site, including the number of visitors to the website and the length of time they have spent on the website. It does not provide us with the personal identification of each individual user.
The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website (including your IP address) will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. Google uses this information to compile reports on website activity and internet usage. Google may transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on Google's behalf. Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google.
Users have the opportunity to set their computers to accept all cookies, to notify them when a cookie is issued, or not to receive cookies at any time. The last of these, of course, means that certain personalised services cannot then be provided to that user.
Please note that the websites to which this site may be linked may also make use of their own cookies.
Links to other websites
Our site may contain links to other sites. You should carefully review the privacy policies and practices of other sites, as we cannot control or be responsible for their privacy practices.
