Irwin Mitchell Alumni Cookie Policy


Introduction

Like many other websites, our website uses cookies. One of the reasons we use cookies is to help us analyse how past colleagues and other visitors use our site and the success of our marketing campaigns. This means we can make informed decisions about improvements to the site and get a good understanding of the kind of content you like to read.

What is a cookie?

A cookie is a small text file that is downloaded onto your computer, tablet or smartphone when you access a website. It allows the website to recognise your device and store some information about your preferences or past actions. Overall, cookies help us provide you with a better website experience, by enabling us to monitor which pages you find useful and which you do not.

When you visit any website, it may store or retrieve information on your browser, mostly in the form of cookies. This information might be about you, your preferences or your device and is mostly used to make the site work as you expect it to. The information does not usually directly identify you, but it can give you a more personalized web experience. Because we respect your right to privacy, you can choose not to allow some types of cookies. To find out more and change our default settings please read the rest of this Cookie Policy, or visit the homepage of the Alumni website where you will see a ‘Cookies Settings’ banner. Please note that blocking some types of cookies may impact your experience of the site and the services we are able to offer.

What cookies does your website use?

They help us to know which pages are the most and least popular and see how visitors move around the site. All information these cookies collect is aggregated and therefore anonymous. If you do not allow these cookies we will not know when you have visited our site, and will not be able to monitor its performance. These cookies are optional.

Targeting Cookies

These cookies may be set through our site by our advertising partners. They may be used by those companies to build a profile of your interests and show you relevant adverts on other sites.
