IMPORTANT NOTICE: This Policy explains how cookies are used on our websites. By using our websites, you agree to the following terms and conditions. The terms “we”, “our” and “us” mean, as applicable, any Investors Group Inc. affiliate or subsidiary, or any program or joint venture we participate in; and “you” and “your” means any individual who visits any of our websites. This Policy may be amended from time to time without notice to you. By using our websites you agree to the placement of cookies on your computer in accordance with the terms of this Policy. If you do not wish to accept cookies from our websites please take the required steps to disable cookies (although this may result in reduced functionality).1. What are Cookies?
A "cookie" is a piece of data that a web server creates when you visit a website. This data is information about how and when you use a website. It is placed on your computer, smartphone, smart TV or tablet (“online device”) in the form of a small text file. There are two main types of cookies:
Interest-based advertising allows us to deliver advertisements that are more relevant to you and your interests. It works by showing you advertisements that are based on your browsing patterns and the way you have interacted with this and other sites.
As you browse our websites, some of the cookies placed on your computer will be advertising cookies, so we can understand what sort of pages you are interested in. We can then display advertising on your browser that is based on these perceived interests. These cookies do not contain personal or financial information about you, but may contain a unique identifier required by the retargeting process. If you access one of these ads, we may also track the response rate and the website activity associated with it.
We also work with third party advertising providers who collect and use information about your visits to this and other websites (but not your name, email address, postal address or phone number) to show you advertising that may be of interest to you. This includes the advertising displayed on our sites and the Investors Group advertising you may be shown when you are on other third party websites.5. Opting-Out
You can opt out of Google Analytics by installing Google’s opt-out browser add-on, and out of interest-based Google ads using Google’s Ads Settings. Even if you opt out, you may still receive Investors Group advertising. It just means that the advertising you see will not be customized for you.6. Refusing Cookies
You can limit the collection of your information by disabling cookies on your browser. You may also be able to modify your browser settings to require your permission each time a website attempts to set a cookie. However, our websites (and many other websites) rely on cookies to enable certain functionality. If you choose to disable cookies, some of the services available on our websites may not work properly.7. Non-Investors Group Websites and Links
Browsers such as Microsoft Internet Explorer allow you to store passwords and logon IDs so you do not need to re-enter this information each time you access websites. We strongly urge you NOT to use this functionality to prevent unauthorized use of any online accounts you may have.9. Changes
We may change this Policy from time to time without notice to you. When we do so we will display the changed Policy on this page. We encourage you to visit this page frequently to stay informed.
