How we use cookies

A cookie is a small file or piece of information which a website asks permission to place on your computer’s hard drive for record-keeping purposes. Once you agree, the file is added and the cookie helps analyse web traffic or lets you know when you visit a particular site. Cookies allow web applications to respond to you as an individual, and make the web more useful by gathering and storing information about your preferences on a particular website. The web application can then tailor its operations to your needs, likes and dislikes. The use of cookies is an industry standard, and most websites use them to provide customized features to their clients.

Weeks Law may have two primary uses for its cookies. First, we may use them to specify unique preferences. Secondly, we may use cookies to track user trends and patterns. We use traffic log cookies to identify which pages are being used. This helps us analyse data, better understand and improve the Site.

Overall, cookies help us provide you with a better website, by enabling us to monitor which pages you find useful and which you do not. A cookie in no way gives us access to your computer or any information about you, other than the data you choose to share with us. You can choose to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. This may prevent you from taking full advantage of the Site.
