Categories of Cookies Used on Our Websites
Below we list the different types of cookies that may be used on our Websites.
Strictly Necessary Cookies. These cookies enable you to navigate our Websites and to use their features. These cookies are necessary for each of our Websites to function and cannot be switched off in our systems. They are usually only set in response to actions made by you which amount to a request for services, such as setting your privacy preferences, logging in or filling in forms. You can set your browser to block or alert you about these cookies, but some parts of the particular website may not work. These cookies do not store any personally identifiable information.
Performance Cookies. These cookies allow us to count visits and traffic sources so we can measure and improve the performance of our Websites. They help us to know which pages are popular and see how visitors move around our Websites. If you do not allow these cookies, we will be less able to optimize our Websites’ performance. All information these cookies collect is aggregated and anonymous.
Targeting Cookies. These cookies may be set through our site by our advertising partners. They may be used by those companies to build a profile of your interests and show you relevant advertisements on other sites. If you do not allow these cookies, you will experience less targeted advertising. These cookies do not directly store personal information, but are based on uniquely identifying your browser and internet device.
Local Shared Objects. Local shared objects, such as “Flash cookies,” also may be stored on your computer or device. Local shared objects operate similar to cookies because they are stored on your device and can be used to store certain information about your activities and preferences; however, they cannot be managed in the same way as cookies. Depending on how local shared objects are enabled on your computer or device, you may be able to manage them using software settings. For information on managing Flash cookies, for example, see http://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player/kb/disable-local-shared-objects-flash.html.
HTML 5. HTML5, the language some websites are coded in, may be used to store information on your computer or device about how you use our Websites. This information may be retrieved by us to help us manage our Websites, and may give us information about how our Websites are being used by our visitors, how they can be improved, and how we can customize our Websites for users.
Cache Cookies. Cache cookies, such as eTags, may be used to identify your computer or device as the same computer or device that visited our Websites in the past.
Mobile Device IDs and Location-Based Information. Certain mobile devices, including smart phones and tablet devices, contain unique device IDs that can be used to identify their physical location. Some mobile device IDs are permanent, while others may be changed by accessing the device’s privacy settings. Mobile devices also typically transmit caller ID data (which may include a phone number) when used to transmit a telephone call or text message. When you use mobile devices to access our Websites, we may collect and transmit unique device IDs and collect caller ID data, as well as other information about your device, including without limitation, your wireless carrier, the make, model, operating system, capacity and settings of your device, the names, package IDs and versions of other software you have downloaded to your device and information about how you interact with and navigate within our Websites.
These tracking technologies may be deployed by us and/or by our service providers or partners on our behalf. These technologies enable us to assign a unique number to you, and may allow us to relate your use of our Websites to other information about you, including your usage information and personal information. We may match information collected from you through different means or at different times and combine such information with information obtained from other sources (including third parties), like demographic information and updated contact information (where that information has been lawfully disclosed to us), for the purposes of learning more about you so we can provide you with relevant content.
Accepting & Blocking Cookies
Most browsers automatically accept cookies. You can set your browser options so that you will not receive cookies and you can also delete existing cookies from your browser. However, you may find that some parts of our Websites will not function properly if you have refused cookies or similar tracking technologies and you should be aware that disabling cookies or similar tracking technologies might prevent you from accessing some of our content.
If you wish to adjust your cookie settings or block non-essential cookies, click here.
“Do Not Track” Signals
Some internet browsers have incorporated “Do Not Track” features. When turned on, these features send a signal (“the DNT Signal”) to websites indicating you do not want to be tracked. Adviser Investments does not recognize the “do not track” signals that some browsers may employ as no uniform standard for responding to such signals has been developed at this time.
Links to Third-Party Websites
Our Websites—on which a link to this Policy appears—contain links to third-party sites and services whose privacy practices may be different than ours. We also allow you to connect with other third-party sites and services. We are not responsible for the privacy practices of third-party sites and services and you should consult the other third-party sites’ and services’ privacy notices in order to better understand their privacy practices.
We have put in place reasonable administrative, technical and physical safeguards to help prevent unauthorized access, maintain data security and correctly use the information we collect from and about you. However, no system can be completely secure and we do not guarantee that unauthorized disclosures and access will not happen. Although we take reasonable measures to safeguard against unauthorized disclosures of information, we cannot assure you that your personal information or other information will never be disclosed in a manner that is inconsistent with this Policy.
