Anonymous Analytics cookies
Every time a user visits our Website, web analytics software provided by a third party generates an anonymous analytics cookie. These cookies can tell us whether or not you have visited the site before. Your browser will tell us if you have these cookies, and if you don’t, we generate new ones. This allows us to track how many individual unique users we have, and how often they visit the site.
Unless you are signed in to Holland & Holland, these cookies cannot be used to identify individuals; they are used for statistical purposes only. If you are logged in, we will also know the details you gave to us for this, such as username and email address.
Third party cookies
On some pages on this site, third parties may also set their own anonymous cookies, for the purposes of tracking the success of their application, or customizing the application for you. Because of how cookies work, Holland & Holland cannot access these cookies, nor can the third parties access the data in cookies used by Holland & Holland.
For example, when you share an article using a social media sharing button, the social network that has created the button will record that you have done this.
