Baylis & Harding plc – Cookie Policy

Baylis & Harding plc ("Baylis & Harding", "we", "us", or "our") uses cookies on our website ( (the "Website"), which amongst other things, help us to improve your experience of our Website and to ensure that it performs as you expect it to. Cookies are text files containing small amounts of information, which are downloaded to your computer or mobile device by websites that you visit.

Websites must get consent to send cookies to your computer or mobile device unless the cookies are strictly necessary to provide services to you.

You can set your cookie preferences when you arrive at our Website, or change them at any time by clicking here to reset and choose again.

Unless the cookie is a strictly necessary cookie, you can withdraw your consent to our cookies at any time even if you have previously consented.

The table below explains what cookies we use on our Website, why we use them and whether they are strictly necessary or another type of cookie e.g. "functionality" or "performance" cookies. We also state in the table whether a cookie is a "persistent" or "session" cookie. The difference is that:

  • Persistent cookies remain on your device between browsing sessions. They are activated each time you visit the Website that created that particular cookie. For example, where a "persistent cookie" is used on a platform to remember your log-in details, you will not need to enter those details each time you visit that platform.
  • Session cookies allow platform operators to link the actions of a user during a browser session. A browser session starts when you open the Website and finishes when you close the Website window. Session cookies are created temporarily. Once you close the Website, all session cookies are deleted.

Some of the cookies listed below are those set by our own Website.


Performance cookies collect information about how visitors use a platform (for example, what device the user is accessing the platform from). These cookies do not collect information that identifies a user. Any information collected by these cookies is anonymous. We only use such information to improve our website.
