We collect contact information through our Websites; “Contact Information” typically includes your name, email address, telephone number, and any information you provide to us, including but not limited to information you voluntarily submit to us via the use of the “Contact Via Email” form or similar contact mechanism on each Website (such as the Alert Registration function on our Press Room, SEC Filings and Stock Information Pages); or by email to any of our employee or business email addresses. We use such contact information for purposes such as creating or managing our business relationship with you, providing you with information about our products and services, obtaining information from you about your products or services, communicating with you about employment opportunities with us, responding to your inquiries including providing you with information and materials you request, sending you investment research, confirming your identity, to perform background checks, or sending you email alerts (including marketing emails).

Server Log Information. Our servers keep log files that record data each time a device accesses those servers. The log files contain data about the nature of such access, including the device’s IP address, user agent string (e.g., operating system and browser type/version), and the pages you’ve clicked on while on our Websites, and details regarding your activity on the Websites such as time spent on the Websites and other performance and usage data. We may use these log files for purposes such as assisting in monitoring and troubleshooting errors and incidents, analyzing traffic, or optimizing the user experience.

Cookies. We may collect information using cookies, pixels, web beacons, and similar data collection and tracking technologies (collectively, “Tracking Technologies”). Cookies are small packets of data that a website stores on your computer’s or mobile device’s hard drive (or other storage medium) so that your device or computer will “remember” information about your use. We use both 1st and 3rd-party session cookies and persistent cookies. Some cookies are essential to the effective operation of our Websites, and others have different purposes that determine the type of information collected. 

We use information collected through cookies and similar Tracking Technologies for business purposes including the following: 

  • To operate and improve our Websites;
  • To ensure that content on our Websites is presented in the most effective manner for you and your device and for other users, and to make improvements to the Websites;
  • To recognize you when you return to one of our Websites. This enables us to record your use of our Websites, potentially to automatically personalize our Websites’ content for you and remember your preferences. It also allows you to participate in interactive features on our Websites, when you choose to do so. For example, when you accept a disclaimer in order to view certain content, we apply a cookie to your browser so that you do not have to accept the disclaimer more than once during a browsing session;
  • As part of our efforts to keep the Websites secure;
  • To administer and maintain the Websites by conducting testing and solving errors;

  • To contact you by email to offer you news and product information where we have recognized that you have previously agreed to receive alerts from us; and
  • To tailor, analyze, manage, report, and optimize personalized advertisements and content you see on our Websites, and on the websites or applications of third parties.

The following table sets out the type of cookies used on our Websites and their purpose.
