Use of cookies

During the course of any visit to the Fichte & Co website, the pages you see, along with a cookie, are downloaded to your computer. Most, if not all, websites do this, because cookies allow the website publisher to accumulate useful data such as whether the computer (and sometimes its user) has visited the site before. This is done on a repeat visit by checking to see and finding the cookie left there on the last visit.

We use cookies to help us to provide you with a better service and to assist us to analyse the profile of our visitors. From time to time we will review the information cookies provided on how the site is used in order to improve navigation and increase the relevance of content.

What is a cookie?

When you enter a site your computer will automatically be issued with a cookie. Cookies are test files that identify your computer to our server. Cookies in themselves do not identify the individual user, just the computer used. Many websites do this whenever a user visits their site in order to track traffic flows.

Cookies themselves only record those areas of the site that have been visited by the computer in question and for how long. Users have the opportunity to set their computers to accept all cookies, to notify them when a cookie is issued, or not to receive cookies at any time. The last of these means that certain personalised services cannot then be provided to the user.

Access to your personal information

You have the right to request a copy of the personal information Fichte & Co holds about you and to have any inaccuracies corrected. We will ask for confirmation of identity before we disclose any personal information and may charge an AED 100 administration fee to process the request. Please send requests to it.support@fichtelegal.com

Contacting Us

If you are in doubt as to the accuracy and currency of any information posted on or downloaded from this site, or if you require any further information, please contact us at it.support@fichtelegal.com

Any dispute arising out of or in connection with the contents of this website or the use of any information or materials contained on the website shall be subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the Courts of Dubai.


Should any part of these terms and conditions for any reason be declared invalid by a court of competent jurisdiction, such determination shall not affect the validity of any remaining portion and such remaining portion shall remain in full force and effect as if the invalid portion of these terms and conditions had been eliminated.
