Cookie Notice

Capitalized terms used in this Cookie Notice, but not defined here, will have the meanings given to them in our Privacy Notice.

Hopkins & Carley uses cookies and similar technologies on its Website. You can find out about cookies and how to control them in the information below. This Cookie Notice explains how we use cookies in connection with the Website and your related choices.

If you do not accept the use of these cookies, please disable them by following the instructions in this Cookie Notice. This may affect your ability to use the Website.

What Are Cookies, Generally?

Like most websites, we use cookies. Cookies do many different jobs, like letting you navigate between pages efficiently, remembering your preferences, and generally improving the user experience.

A cookie is a small text file that is stored on a user’s computer for record-keeping purposes. When you visit, access or use the Sites, we may – by means of cookies, beacons, tags, scripts, and/or similar technologies – automatically collect technical information. A cookie can generally be classified by its lifespan and the domain to which it belongs.

By lifespan, a cookie is either a session cookie, which is erased when the user closes the browser; or a persistent cookie, which remains on the user’s computer/device for a pre-defined period of time.

Generally speaking, there are two types of domains to which cookies belong:

  • First-party cookies are set by the web server of the visited page and share the same domain as the visited page (in this case, the domain); or
  • Third-party cookies are stored by a different domain than the visited page’s domain. This can happen when, for example, our Website references a file, such as JavaScript, located outside its domain.

How and Why We Use Cookies

The cookies that we use are essential to the proper functioning of the Website, and cannot be switched off in our system. These are known as “strictly necessary” cookies, and this includes cookies that capture and store users’ preferences, account settings, and certain login information (mainly for convenience, user verification, and account security). These cookies typically are set in response to actions made by you, such as a request for access to our Website, setting your privacy preferences, logging in or filling in forms.

On our Website, we use the following cookies:  PHPSESSID

Disabling Cookies

You can set your browser to block or alert you about these cookies, but because the cookies that we use are essential, if you do block them, some parts of the Website will not work.

Changes to this Cookie Notice

Hopkins & Carley may update this Cookie Notice from time to time, at its sole discretion. If so, we will post an updated Cookie Notice on our Website. Changes, modifications, additions, or deletions will be effective immediately on their posting to the Website. We encourage you to review this Cookie Notice regularly for any changes. Your continued use of the Website and/or your continued provision of Personal Information to us after the posting of such notice will be subject to the terms of the then-current Privacy Notice and Cookie Notice. If you continue to use the Website, you will be deemed to have accepted the change.
