What are cookies?

Cookies are text files containing small amounts of information which are downloaded to your device (e.g. computer, mobile phone etc) when you visit a website. Cookies are then sent back to the originating web domain on your subsequent visits to that domain. Most web pages contain elements from multiple web domains so when you visit your browser may receive cookies from several sources.

Cookies are useful because they allow a website to recognise a user’s device. They allow you to navigate between web pages efficiently, remember preferences and analyse how you use websites and online services. They can also be used to tailor advertising to your interests through tracking your browsing across websites.

Why do we use cookies?

We use cookies for various purposes, such as to:

  • analyse trends;
  • administer services;
  • remember your preferences; 
  • track users’ movements around our website;
  • gather demographic information about our user base as a whole; 
  • enable you to navigate between webpages more efficiently;
  • help us understand how our website is used so we can improve it; and 
  • record information about your visit to help target advertising and content specific to you.  

The purpose for each cookie we use is set out below.

What types of cookies does Norton Rose Fulbright use and how long will they stay on my device?

We use the following types of cookies: necessary cookies; analytics cookies; functional cookies; and marketing cookies. Each type of cookie has a different purpose, as described further below.

  • Some cookies are set by us (known as first-party cookies).
  • Other cookies are set by another organisation’s website (known as third-party cookies).  For third-party cookies, we do not have access or control over these technologies.  We do not tie the information gathered by third parties to our client’s or users’ personal information.
  • A cookie can either be a session cookie or a persistent cookie.  A session cookie is stored temporarily on your computer or device while you use the website, and is deleted when you close your internet browser. A persistent cookie remains on your computer or device after you have closed your browser, so we can remember if you have visited our website before or your preferences. The period of time a persistent cookie stays on your computer or device varies and is set out below.

When you use the LinkedIn, Twitter or the other share buttons available, you will be directed to a page controlled by those companies which may place cookies (including advertising cookies) and will be subject to LinkedIn’s, Twitter’s or the relevant other website’s cookies policies respectively.

Use of IP addresses and web logs

We may also use your IP address and browser type to help diagnose problems with our server, to administer our website and to improve the service we offer to you. An IP address is a numeric code that identifies your computer on the internet. Your IP address might also be used to gather broad demographic information.

We may perform IP lookups to determine which domain you are coming from (e.g. to more accurately gauge our users’ demographics.

Information from these types of cookies and technologies is not combined with information about you from any other source and will not personally identify you.

HTML email web beacons and webinars

Our marketing related emails contain a single, campaign-unique “web beacon pixel” to tell us whether our emails are opened and combined with other technology and to verify any clicks through to links within the email. We may use this information for purposes including determining which of our emails are more interesting to you and to query whether users who do not open our emails wish to continue receiving them. The pixel will be deleted when you delete the email. If you do not wish the pixel to be downloaded to your device, you should choose not to click links that we send you. This information may be connected to your personal identity.

Where you subscribe to our webinar service, the accompanying emails similarly include a pixel. We track your interaction with these emails and our webinars to validate attendance for accreditation purposes and to help determine which information is of interest to you as described above.
