Cooley LLP Cookies Policy

Cooley uses a variety of technologies to deliver customized experiences to our website visitors. In particular, we may use “cookies,” which are small text files that our website may store on your computer that allow us to properly operate our site, provide content and analyze the usage of our site.

We need your consent to use certain categories of cookies, and you may choose to block certain categories of cookies – though the site may not function as expected – by using our Cookie Preference Center. You can change your preferences at any time.

What types of cookies do we use?

There are four types of cookies that we use: necessary, functional, analytics and advertising cookies. Details about the different functions these cookies perform are explained below in the “Cookies in use” section.

We use first-party cookies, which are set by Cooley directly, as well as third-party cookies, which are used on our site by a third party, such as a company hired to perform site analytics. Cookies last for different durations – for example, session cookies are deleted when you close your internet browser, while persistent cookies stay in place after you close your browser, allowing us to recognize you and remember your preferences when you return to our site.

Cookies in use

Cooley is gives you the ability to manage your cookie preferences within our website by using our Cookie Preference Center.

Necessary cookies are essential to provide you with the services you request on our website and for our compliance under data protection law. They are typically set in response to actions taken by you that amount to a request for services, such as setting your preferences or filling in forms. You cannot opt out of these cookies. This type of cookie does not collect any personally identifiable information about you and does not track your browsing habits.

Functional cookies enable our website to provide enhanced functionality and personalization. They may be set by us or by third-party providers, whose services we have added to our pages. If you do not allow these cookies, then some or all of these services may not function properly.

Analytics cookies collect information such as the following:

  • The time of your first visit to our website, the time of your most recent visit to our website and the time of your current visit.
  • Which page(s) you visited on our website.
  • How long you stayed on our website.
  • How you arrived at our website (i.e., Google search, keyword, link from another page, etc.).

These cookies help us monitor the effectiveness of our website and consider improvements to further tailor it for our visitors.

We share analytics cookie data with some third parties to optimize website performance. The cookies we use for these purposes do not track your internet usage after leaving our website and do not store your personal information. These cookies will not be used in connection with any other information to identify you. You can opt out of analytics cookies by using the Cookie Preference Center.

Targeting cookies are used to provide you with access to content and information you may be interested in. For example, we link to and embed our client alert sign-up forms via Pardot, a marketing automation platform we use for email marketing purposes.

We use cookie and tracking technology in some of our emails to see whether our emails are opened, replied to or forwarded, and whether links are followed. Cookie and tracking technology is used in the following ways:

  • Cookie tracking: Links within our emails are unique to the recipient. When a link is clicked, a session cookie will record the recipient’s visit to the destination page. The session cookie is deleted when the recipient closes their browser or leaves the destination page.
  • Tracking GIF: Each email contains a tiny unique graphic or “pixel” that tracks whether the email is opened. The graphic does not contain any personal information.

The use of cookie and tracking technology helps us improve the services and communications we offer. You can opt out of targeting cookies using the Cookie Preference Center to disable tracking (where relevant), or you can unsubscribe from our email updates at any time by using the link provided at the bottom of every email.
