Privacy Policy, Cookie Policy, and TERMS OF USE Policy.


To make this site work properly, we sometimes place small data files called cookies on your device. Most websites do this, too. This is generally accepted as a positive for website visitors.  The law states that we can store cookies on your machine if they are essential to the operation of this site, but that for all others we need your permission to do so. Note: we do use some non-essential cookies. We do not do this to track individual users or to identify them, but to gain useful knowledge about how the site is used so that we can keep improving it for our users. Without the knowledge we gain from the systems that use these cookies we would not be able to provide the service we do. If you do not agree to our use of cookies in this way, you should adjust your browser settings to prevent your browser from automatically accepting cookies. If you disable cookies, your user experience while on this website may be less than optimal.

What are cookies?

A cookie is a small text file that a website saves on your computer or mobile device when you visit the site. It enables the website to remember your actions and preferences, (such as login, language, font size and other display preferences), and other website activity, over a period of time, so you don’t have to keep re-entering preference choices whenever you come back to the site or browse from one page to another.  A cookie will usually contain some information about where it came from, such as the name of this website. Most internet browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can manually change your browser settings to block cookies or to alert you when a cookie is sent to your device. Please refer to your browser instructions to learn how to modify your browser settings.

How do we use cookies?
A number of our pages use cookies to remember some browser and computer functions such as your display preferences, contrast colour settings, font size, whether or not you responded to a survey in cases where we present a survey, pop-up fields or boxes checking to determine your opinion of the website’s or the information’s usefulness and whether or not it has been helpful and useful to you, and if you have  agreed (or not) to our use of cookies on this site. Also, some videos embedded in our pages use a cookie to anonymously gather statistics on how you got there and what videos you visited. Cookies may also be used to send high-level data, such as browser type, pages referenced, and other “statistically useful” information for Google’s and 1and1.com’s statistics packages to Google and 1and1.com, (or other tallying services, if we should change from Google or 1and1.com),  but merely for tallying and  analysis as part of Google’s and 1and1.com’s statistics. The information generated by the cookie about your use of our website (including your IP address) will be transmitted to and stored by Google and 1and1.com on servers in the United States. Google and 1and1.com will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of our website, compiling reports on website activity and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage.

Google or 1and1.com may also transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on Google’s behalf. Google and 1and1.com undertakes not to associate your IP address with any other data held by Google.

If you have Adobe Flash installed on your computer (most computers do) and you use Out-Law.com’s audio or video players, Google Analytics will try to store some additional data on your computer. This data is known as a Local Shared Object or Flash cookie. This helps us to analyse the popularity of our media files. We can count the total number of times each file is played, how many people watch videos right to the end and how many people give up half way through. Adobe’s website offers tools to control Flash cookies on your computer.
