What are cookies?

Like many websites, we use ‘cookies’ to personalise your visits to the LK Shields Website (the “Website”).  Cookies are small text files which may be stored on your computer or mobile device and contain data related to a website you visit.  The use of cookies allows our Website to improve by remembering preferences expressed by a user or tracking a user’s use of a website for statistical analysis.

Types of cookies

The LK Shields Website employs two different forms of cookies:

  • Session Cookies, which are temporary cookies that are not persistently stored on your computer or mobile device.  They are used to deliver basic functions of a website while you are actively using it – for instance during a registration process.  Session cookies are generally erased when you close your browser.
  • Persistent cookies, which are cookies placed on your computer or mobile device for a pre-determined length of time when you visit this site.  This allows our Website to deliver functions between browser sessions and subsequent visits.  The LK Shields Website only places cookies on your device which are specific to our Website.

Why do we use cookies?
