Due to recent changes in law, all Web sites which operate across certain parts of
the European Union are required to obtain consent using or storing cookies (or
similar technologies) on your computers or mobile device. This cookie policy

Key concepts

First and third-party cookies: whether a cookie is ‘first’ or ‘third’ party
refers to the domain placing the cookie. First-party cookies are those set
by a Web site that is being visited by the user at the time (eg cookies
placed by www.dlapiper.com).

Third-party cookies: are cookies that are set by a domain other than that
of the Web site being visited by the user. If a user visits a Web site and
another entity sets a cookie through that Web site, this would be a thirdparty
cookie.

Persistent cookies: these cookies remain on a user’s device for the
period of time specified in the cookie. They are activated each time that
the user visits the Web site that created that particular cookie.

Session cookies: these cookies allow Web site operators to link the
actions of a user during a browser session. A browser session starts when
a user opens the browser window and finishes when they close the
browser window. Session cookies are created temporarily. Once you close
the browser, all session cookies are deleted.
