This cookies policy (the “Cookies Policy”) describes the way in which Garfield Smith Solicitors Limited, trading as “Garfield Smith” or “Garfield Smith – Technology & Data Lawyers” uses cookies and other technologies to store or access information on the device that you use to access the website accessed through the domain and other domains containing the garfieldsmith name and maintained by Garfield Smith Solicitors Limited (the “Site”).

We may revise this policy from time to time and will post any changes on this web page. You should check this page from time to time to keep up-to-date with any such changes, as the changes will apply to any visits you make to the Site after the change.




A cookie is a small text file that is placed on the hard drive of the device you use to access a website, so that the website can remember and identify your device. They contain anonymous information and will typically include the name of the site from which the cookie has come; how long the cookie will last; and a value, usually a randomly generated unique number.

Cookies are widely used in order to make websites work, or work more efficiently, as well as to provide information to the owners of the site.  For example, they enable a website to identify that, when you move from one page to another, you are not a new user and so do not need to log on again.


Some websites will also use cookies to enable them to target their advertising or marketing based, for example, on your location or browsing habits.


Cookies can be set by the owner of the website itself (“first party cookies“) or by other websites that provide content (such as advertising) for the website that you are viewing (“third party cookies“).

Pixel cookies collect only limited information from your device, which includes a cookie number; time and date of a page view; and a description of the page on which the pixel cookie resides.


These pixel cookies do not carry any personally identifiable information and are only used to track use of the Site or particular pages on it. Pixel cookies are not stored on your device and do not place any information on your device.

Analytical/performance cookies. These allow us to recognise and count the number of visitors to the site, and to see how visitors arrive at our website move around our website when they are using it. This helps us to improve the way our website works, for example, by ensuring that users are finding what they are looking for easily. we may also use the information stored by those cookies with third parties for those purposes.

Functionality cookies. These are used to recognise you when you return to the Site in order to remember your preferences (for example, your choice of language or region) and functionality that you have used on the Site, in order to improve your user experience of the Site.

Targeting cookies. These cookies record your visit to the Site, the pages you have visited and the links you have followed. We will use this information to make the Site more relevant to your interests. 

Some cookies used on the Site are temporary and remain on your device until you leave the Site, at which point they are deleted. These are often called “session” cookies.
