Cookies Policy


References to "our", "us", "we" or "Shine Lawyers” within this Privacy Notice are to Shine Lawyers Pty Ltd and its group companies, as applicable. This Policy governs the use of cookies by Shine Lawyers.

As our clients, we value your trust and want to make it easy for you to understand what cookies are, how we use them to improve your experience on our websites and how you can control them on your devices.

How and why we use cookies

Shine Lawyers uses cookies to enhance your experience with us across the web and when you visit our website.

Cookies are used for a range of purposes such as; helping you navigate between pages efficiently, remembering any preferences you have set and ensuring that the online advertisements you see are more relevant to you. Cookies also allow us to analyse user behaviours and help us make informed decisions on how to improve your experience with our website.


Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer, tablet or phone when you visit a website. Cookies are useful because they allow a website to recognise a user's device. They are not executable codes nor are they spyware or viruses.

Some cookies are deleted when you close down your browser. These are known as session cookies. Others remain on your device until they expire or you delete them from your cache. These are known as persistent cookies and these types enable us to remember things about you as a returning visitor.

Cookies we use

The main categories of cookies we use include:

  • Strictly necessary cookies Strictly necessary cookies are essential to enable you to receive a service on a website. For example, cookies to operate online shopping baskets, or to comply with the law (e.g. such as to keep your information safe). We would not be able to operate our website without using "strictly necessary" cookies.

  • Performance cookies These cookies allow us to count the number of visitors and collect information about how visitors use a website, for instance, which pages visitors go to most often and if they receive error messages from web pages. These cookies do not collect information that identifies a visitor. Any information collected by these cookies is anonymous. We only use such information to improve our website. By using our websites you agree that we can place these types of cookies on your device, however you can block these cookies using your browser settings (please see the How to manage your cookies section below).

  • Functionality cookies Functionality cookies allow the website to remember choices you make (such as your log in details) and customised preference settings (e.g. text size). They also enable enhanced, more personal features, e.g. a website may be able to provide you with local weather reports or traffic news by using a cookie to remember which region you are in. These cookies are also used to provide services you have asked for such as watching a video. Information collected by functionality cookies may or may not be anonymised, but they cannot track your browsing activity on other websites. The functionality cookies on our website collect anonymous information.

  • First and third party cookies Whether a cookie is a first or third party cookie depends on which website the cookie comes from. First party cookies are those set by or on behalf of the website visited. All other cookies are third party cookies. Please note that third parties (including, for example, advertising networks and providers of external services like web traffic analysis services) may also use cookies, over which we have no control. These cookies are likely to be analytical / performance cookies or targeting cookies.

How long cookies will be stored on your device

Except for strictly necessary cookies, all cookies will expire after 1827 days.
