Cookies

There are many different ways that cookies are categorised by websites, usually by reference to their purpose. We believe that the UK International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) categories are the most helpful for website visitors. They are: Strictly Necessary, Performance, Functionality and Targeting/ Advertising. Most sites now use these or a close variation of them.

Note: We make every effort to respect your choices, however, there is the possibility that not all cookies will be captured. Please be aware if this is a concern then we would recommend that you change your cookie settings via your browser; your browser help function will tell you how.

You can use our cookie settings page to opt-out of certain cookies on mishcon.com if you don’t want to receive them. If you do so we will need to set a cookie so that we can remember your choices when you next visit the website from the same browser. It is not possible currently for us to allow you to carry your settings with you between your browsers on different devices. You will need to change these settings from each browser you use.

Change your settings to affect the functionality, anonymous measurement and performance cookies we use on our website.

An HTTP cookie (also called web cookie, Internet cookie, browser cookie or simply cookie), is a small piece of data sent from a website and stored in the user's web browser while the user is browsing. Every time the user loads the website, the browser sends the cookie back to the server to notify the user's previous activity. Cookies were designed to be a reliable mechanism for websites to remember stateful information (such as items added in the shopping cart in an online store) or to record the user's browsing activity (including clicking particular buttons, logging in, or recording which pages were visited in the past). Cookies can also store passwords and form content a user has previously entered.

Other kinds of cookies perform essential functions in the modern web. Perhaps most importantly, authentication cookiesare the most common method used by web servers to know whether the user is logged in or not, and which account they are logged in with.

Tracking cookies, and especially third-party tracking cookies, are commonly used as ways to compile long-term records of individuals' browsing histories – a potential privacy concern that prompted European and U.S. law makers to take action in 2011. European law requires all websites targeting European Union member states gain "informed consent" from users before storing non-essential cookies on their devices.
