What Are Cookies?

As is common practice with almost all professional websites, Our Website uses cookies, which are tiny files that are downloaded to your computer, to improve your experience. This page describes what information they gather, how we use it, and why we sometimes need to store these cookies. We will also share how you can prevent these cookies from being stored, but this may downgrade or “break” certain elements of the site’s functionality.

Key Concepts

First and Third Party Cookies

Whether a cookie is “first” or “third” party refers to the domain placing the cookie.

First-party cookies are those set by a website that is being visited by the user at the time (e.g., cookies placed by www.hinckleyallen.com).

Third-party cookies are cookies that are set by a domain other than that of the website being visited by the user. If a user visits a website and another entity sets a cookie through that website, this would be a third-party cookie.

Persistent Cookies

Persistent cookies remain on a user’s device for the period of time specified in the cookie. They are activated each time that the user visits the website that created that particular cookie.

Session Cookies

Session cookies allow website operators to link the actions of a user during a browser session. A browser session starts when a user opens the browser window and finishes when they close the browser window. Session cookies are created temporarily. Once you close the browser, all session cookies are deleted.

How to Delete and Block Our Cookies

You block cookies by activating the setting on your browser that allows you to refuse the setting of all or some cookies.

Changing Your Cookie Settings

Please note that Internet browsers allow you to change your cookie settings. These settings are usually found in the “options” or “preferences” menu of your internet browser. You should use the “Help” option in your internet browser for more details.

If you use your browser settings to block all cookies (including essential cookies), you may not be able to access all or parts of Our Website. Unless you have adjusted your browser setting so that it will refuse cookies, our system will issue cookies as soon as you return to Our Website.

Your Consent

By continuing to use Our Website, you are agreeing to Hinckley Allen placing cookies on your computer in order to analyze the way you use Our Website. Please read this cookie policy carefully for more details about the information we collect when you use Our Website.

Can I Withdraw My Consent?

If you wish to withdraw your consent at any time, you will need to delete your cookies using your internet browser settings.

What Cookies Do We Use and Why?

The cookies used on Our Website are categorized as follows:

  • Strictly Necessary/Technical
  • Analytical/Performance
  • Functional
  • Targeting

Strictly Necessary Cookies

Strictly necessary cookies allow us to operate Our Website so you may access the site as you have requested. These cookies, for example, let us recognize that you have created an account and have logged into that account to access content. They also include cookies that enable us to remember your previous actions within the same browsing session and secure Our Website.

Performance Cookies

Performance cookies collect information about how you use Our Website – including which pages you visit and if you experience any errors. These cookies do not collect any information that could identify you and are only used to help us improve how Our Website works, understand what interests our users, and measure how effective our content is.  We use performance cookies for:

  • Web analytics to provide anonymous statistics on how Our Website is used.
  • Error management to help us improve Our Website by measuring any errors that occur.

Third parties manage some of our performance cookies. However, we do not allow the third party to use the cookies for any purpose other than those listed above.

By using Our Website, you accept the use of performance cookies. Accepting these cookies is a condition of using Our Website, so if you prevent them, we cannot guarantee how our site will perform for you.

Functional Cookies

Functional cookies let us operate Our Website in accordance with the choices you make.  Functional cookies permit us to “remember” you in-between visits. For instance, we will recognize your user name and remember how you customized Our Website and services, by adjusting text size, fonts, languages, and other parts of web pages that are alterable, and providing you with the same customizations during future visits.

Targeting Cookies
