This website contains general information and, although we endeavour to ensure that the content is accurate and up-to-date, users should seek appropriate specific legal advice before taking or refraining from taking any action.
Owen White believes in the responsible use of personal information collected on its website. The extent and type of information we receive from you depends on the information you provide to us through our online general enquiry form and contact mailbox.
We will only use your personal information to respond to requests and provide you with the requested information about our services. If we intend to use your personal information to inform you about other Owen White services, we will give you the opportunity to decline to receive this information. If you email us a CV to apply for a staff position we will use the information provided to match your skills and experience with available opportunities.
We seek to maintain full compliance with ICO regulations in force from time to time. It is widely accepted that the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC’s) clear and concise guidance on cookie regulations, though not constituting legal advice, provides the best guidance in lieu of any official documentation from ICO which is not yet available.
To that end we categorise cookie use as follows:
- Strictly necessary: to fit this category, the cookie must be “related to a service provided on the website that has been explicitly requested by the user”. Obvious cases include shopping cart cookies and access to protected areas. We also include cookies which remember previously entered text so it’s not lost if the page refreshes in this category. This is in-line with ICC suggestion.
- Performance based: the ICC guidelines includes analytics, advertising and Pay Per Click cookies in this category – provided they only store anonymous data and cannot therefore be used for behavioural targeting of ads.
- Functionality based: these include cookies that remember user choices so that they have a more personalised experience. This may include detecting if the user has already seen a popup so that it isn’t shown again, submitting comments and remembering colours, text size, etc.
- Targeting/advertising based: primarily these are the cookies that the ICO regulations were originally aimed at. This is aimed to cut out creepy and nefarious cookie usage, e.g. the way ads can seem to follow us around the internet – they work by collecting information about our browsing habits which is then used to serve up targeted ads. We agree with the ICC guidance on these cookies, which advises website owners to get clear, explicit consent from users if the site employs such technology.
At Owen White we would always ask for user consent if we were to use category four cookies. We do not ask user consent for category one, two & three cookies on our websites and we adhere to the ICC guidance in which no opt-in is required for these types of cookies by the user.
If you have further concerns or questions over our cookie usage, then we welcome and encourage you to get in touch. We take our website responsibilities seriously and if something isn’t right, we will do all we can to put it right.
If you have any questions or comments about our use of your personal information please telephone us on 01753 876800 or contact us by email.
