Cookies Policy


This policy explains how we use cookies on this website, (the "Site"). This policy should be read in conjunction with our general Legal Statements.

Cookies are small text files stored on your device and used by website operators in order to make websites work, or work more efficiently, as well as to provide information to the operators of the website or certain third parties. Each cookie usually contains a unique string of characters, which allows a website to distinguish your device from other users.

We use cookies to enable you to navigate between pages, remember your preferences or settings, (for example, by remembering your previous preferences or settings or to identify when you are logged in), and to generally improve your user experience. We also use cookies to analyse how users interact with our website, to enable you to share content with social media websites, and to provide you with embedded content from third parties, such as maps of our offices.

Allison Stiven will not seek to associate any information derived from the use of cookies with any other information in its possession, in order to identify you (and thereby to establish your use of the Site), whether by seeking to link your IP address with you, or otherwise. Where this Site uses third party cookies, you should check with the relevant third party to see how they will use their cookies (see below).

Where possible, we try to give you advance notice of the use of cookies prior to that cookie being stored on your device, but some cookies that help to make the Site easier for you to use, remember your settings, or help us to track how visitors use the Site are set to be stored on your device automatically unless you have set your browser settings to reject cookies or prompt for your approval before they are stored.

We therefore recommend that you read our cookies policy so that you are aware of how we use them and can take steps to reject or delete the cookies if you do not agree to them being used.

In this cookies policy, we use the term "cookie" to mean a cookie and any other similar technology, such as web beacons, local stored objects ("Flash cookies"), and pixel tags.
