Please keep in mind that whenever you voluntarily disclose personal information online – for example on message boards, through email, or in chat areas – that information can be collected and used by others.

BAKER & PARTNERS uses cookies as a means of offering and providing customisable and personalised services. However, your browser has settings that will allow you to accept all cookies, be informed as cookies arrive or reject all cookies. The downside of rejecting all cookies is that we are then unable to match the site content we offer you to what we know about your preferences from your previous visits.
BAKER & PARTNERS collects IP addresses for system administration, for independent audit and to report aggregate information to our advertisers. By this we can see how our sites are being used, for example, what services and facilities are popular, and how long users spend on particular pages. This is data about our users’ browsing actions and patterns and it does not identify anyone individually.
How does BAKER & PARTNERS use my information?

BAKER & PARTNERS may also disclose account information in special cases when we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be violating BAKER & PARTNERS’s Terms, Database Rights or Copyright or may be causing injury to or interference with (either intentionally or unintentionally) BAKER & PARTNERS’s rights or property, other BAKER & PARTNERS users, or anyone else that could be harmed by such activities.
BAKER & PARTNERS or its sponsors or business partners may, from time to time, contact you regarding their products and services.
