Cookie policy

Last Updated: 12 April 2023

This Cookie Policy explains how The Chancery Lane Project (“TCLP”, “we”, “us” or “our”) uses cookies and other similar technologies on its websites that link to this Cookie Policy (the “Websites”), as well as in our emails, and your related choices in relation to the same. 

Please refer to our Privacy Policy for more information on our privacy practices.

What types of technologies does TCLP use?

We may use any or all of the following “technologies” on our Websites and in our emails:

Cookies: a cookie is a very small text file that may be placed on your browser or in the storage on your device. There are two types: “session cookies” and “persistent cookies”. Session cookies are cookies that disappear from your device or browser when you close your browser. Persistent cookies stay on your device even after you close your browser.  

Please note that both TCLP and third-party service providers may set cookies on our Websites – these ‘third-party cookies’ are set by domains other than those we control and may recognise your device across different websites.

Pixel tags: A pixel tag is a single pixel, transparent GIF image with a unique identifier that can recognise certain types of data on your device. They are used to operate and improve the Websites and our email practices, including to help deliver cookies, count visits and understand usage and email campaign effectiveness. 

For example, we may put pixel tags in our emails to understand how you interact with that email – for example, whether you opened the email, whether you forwarded it, whether you clicked on a link in the email that directed you to our Websites etc., – these pixels may collect the time, location and operating system of the device you use to read the email.

Session-replay technologies: We may use products or services such as those provided by Hotjar that employ software code to record users’ interactions with the Websites in a manner that allows us to watch DVR-like replays of those user sessions. The replays include users’ clicks, mobile app touches, mouse movements, scrolls and keystrokes/key touches during those sessions. These replays help us diagnose usability problems and identify areas for improvement.

Other similar technologies: We may also use other tracking technologies, such as mobile advertising IDs and tags, HTML5 local storage / local shared objects (which store relevant data locally on your device), for similar purposes as described in this Cookie Policy. 

So, when we refer to cookies and “similar technologies” in this Cookie Policy, such reference includes reference to the pixel tags discussed above, HTML5 local storage / local shared objects and other equivalent tracking technologies. 

For what reasons do we use cookies and similar technologies?

The purposes for which we use technologies may fall into one of the following categories:

  • Strictly necessary technologies: these technologies are essential in order to enable our Websites to provide the function you have requested, such as by helping to ensure that the content of a page loads quickly and effectively.
  • Functionality technologies: these technologies allow us to provide enhanced personalisation and functionality, such as tailoring content to you, remembering your choices and preferences on the Websites (e.g. language, text size, etc.) or remembering your search parameters.
  • Analytics technologies: these technologies collect information on how users interact with our Websites and enable us to improve how it operates.
  • Targeting technologies: these technologies collect information about your browsing habits in order to provide advertising which is more relevant to you and your interests – for example, they remember the websites you have visited and share that information with other parties such as advertising technology service providers.
  • Social media technologies: these technologies are used when you share information using a social media sharing or “like” button on our Websites or social media platform. This information may be linked to advertising activities.

A full list of the technologies we use can be found in the section titled: Details of Cookies and Similar Technologies

You can control or limit how cookies and similar technologies are used by taking the following steps:

  • Pixel tags in emails can typically be blocked by default if you configure your preferences in your email client to block external images or set it to show “plain text only” emails.
  • Managing your browser or device settings to clear or decline cookies (for instance, by using a “private” or “incognito” mode). If you disable cookies, however, some of the features of our services may not function properly.
