By entering your details in the fields requested, you enable Sutherland & Barnett to provide you with the services you select. Whenever you provide such personal information, we will treat that information in accordance with this policy. During the course of any visit the pages you see along with a short text file called a ‘cookie’, are downloaded to your computer.

This is done on a repeat visit by checking to see, and finding, the cookie left on the last visit.

Information supplied by cookies can help us to provide you with a better online user experience and assist us to analyse the profile of our visitors. A cookie is a small amount of data, which often includes an anonymous unique identifier that is sent to your browser for a website’s computer and stored on your computer’s hard drive. Each website can send its own cookie to your browser if your browser’s preferences allow it, but (to protect your privacy), your browser only permits a website to access the cookies it has already sent to you, not the cookies sent to you by other sites. Many sites do this whenever a user visits their website in order to track online traffic flows.

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. Each browser is different, so check the “Help” menu of your browser to learn how to change your cookie preferences.
