    Default Legal Beagles - Cookies



    This is our Cookie Policy. It explains what “cookies” are and how our site uses cookies and other tracking technologies to improve our site and to deliver a better, and more personalised, service. Our Cookie Policy applies to all users of (or any of our other Legal Beagles domains).


    1.1 Cookies are small text files that are sent by a website to a web browser, and stored by the browser. This enables the website to identify and track the web browser. Cookies can, among other functions, enable a website to recognise a device each time it visits, remember user preferences and recommend content.

    1.2 Cookies in themselves do not identify the individual user, but rather the computer used. However, some cookies will contain personal information such as a user name.

    1.3 We may use both session cookies and persistent cookies on the site:
    1.3.1 Session cookies will be used to keep track of you whilst you navigate the website. Session cookies will be deleted from your computer when you close your browser.
    1.3.2 Persistent cookies will be used to enable our website to recognise you when you visit. Persistent cookies will remain stored on your computer until deleted, or until they reach a specified expiry date.
    1.4 The site also employs cookies from third parties such as Google Analytics.


    There are four general categories of cookies:

    2.1 Strictly necessary cookies
    These cookies are essential to the functioning of a site, enabling you to move around the site and allowing the site to provide the services that you ask for. For example, a strictly necessary cookie might be used to log into secure areas of a site or to recognise the region you are in, thereby allowing the site operator to tailor the site accordingly.
    Strictly necessary cookies do not gather any information that could be used for marketing purposes and they do not retain information beyond the end of your visit.
    2.2 Analytical/performance cookies
    These cookies collect information about how visitors use a website. They allow the site operator to recognise and count the number of visitors and to see how visitors move around the site when they are using it. This helps the site operator to improve the way the website works, for example, by ensuring that users are finding what they are looking for easily.
    All information collected by these cookies is aggregated and therefore cannot be used to identify individual visitors. The information is only used to improve how a website works.

    2.3 Functionality cookies
    These cookies allow a website to remember choices that a user makes and provide enhanced, more personalised features. For example, such cookies enable you to stay signed into the website and recognise you when you arrive. The information these cookies collect may be anonymised and they cannot track browsing activity on other websites.

    2.4 Targeting cookies
    These cookies record users’ visits to a website, the pages they have visited and the links they have followed. They are also used to ensure that users are presented with adverts which are relevant to their interests, to limit the number of times a particular advert is displayed and to help measure the effectiveness of an advertising campaign. The information is often shared with other organisations, such as advertisers.


    You can find more information about the individual cookies we use and the purposes for which we use them in the table below. Whilst you are using the site, if you come across a cookie that is not listed in the table below, then please contact us [email protected]. You can also find out more about cookies generally here.

    Comments cookies comment_author Less than one year
    These cookies are placed on your computer when you comment on an article. These cookies are used for convenience, so that you do not need to re-enter your information again when you leave another comment.
    Forum cookies bb_lastactivity Up to one year
    These cookies record details of your last session, such as when you visited the site and the areas you visited.
    vsachatbox_color [●]
    wordpress_d [●]
    These cookies are used to aid functionality and make your interaction with our site smoother, for example, by checking whether you are logged in, verifying your identity and recording the time you logged in.

    Google Analytics cookies _utma Two years
    Google Analytics is a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. Google Analytics cookies are used to collect information about how visitors use our site. The cookies collect information in an anonymous form, including the number of visitors to the site, where visitors have come to the site from and the pages they visited. We use the information to compile reports and to help us improve the site. Google holds this information and provides us with access to it.

    4.1 Please note that third parties (including, for example, advertising networks and providers of external services like web traffic analysis services) may also use cookies, over which we have no control. These cookies are likely to be performance cookies or targeting cookies.


    5.1 Most browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually change your browser settings to limit or prevent cookies.

    5.2 You can find out how to opt out of being tracked by Google Analytics here

    5.3 Unless you have adjusted your browser settings so that it will refuse cookies, our system will issue cookies as soon as you visit our site.

    5.4 If you set your browser to not accept cookies, it may result in certain sections of our site not working properly and certain personalised services not being provided to users of your computer.
