This Policy sets out how Dynamic Funds, a division of 1832 Asset Management L.P.(“Dynamic Funds”), use cookies on the Dynamic Funds website (our, this or the “Website“).  By accessing and using this Website you acknowledge that you have read and understood this Policy, and 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 this Website please take the required steps to disable cookies.

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 site. It is placed on your computer, smartphone, smart TV or tablet (“online device”) in the form of a small text file. The information cannot be used to identify you personally. Cookies do not collect personal information such as your name, address, telephone number, or email address.

There are two main types of cookies:

  • Session cookies: these are temporary cookies that expire when you leave the site. Session cookies allow a website to recognize you as you navigate between pages during a single browser session and allow you to use a website most efficiently. For example, session cookies enable a website to remember that a user has placed items in an online basket.
  • Persistent cookies: in contrast to session cookies, persistent cookies are stored on your online device between browsing sessions until expiry or deletion. They therefore enable a website to "recognize" you on your return, remember your preferences, and tailor services to you.

We use both session cookies and persistent cookies on this Website. The benefit of enabling cookies is that it will allow your use of this Website to be faster, easier and tailored to your interests.

Why we use Cookies

Many cookies are designed to give you optimal usage of the web. For example, we use cookies to collect information about your activity on our Website to enable us to improve your user experience when you are here, e.g. a cookie which recognizes if your browser supports specific technology features. This helps, for example, in enabling web pages to be loaded more quickly when you request the download of a large file. The information that we collect and share is not personally identifiable and does not include your name, address, telephone number or email address.

We may use cookies on this Website for the following purposes:

  • To collect statistical information: We use cookies to collect statistical information on how you use our Website to help us understand how users use our Website and to help us improve its structure and content.
  • Engagement: We use cookies to collect non-identifiable information to gain a better understanding of visitor behaviors on our Website to develop engagement strategies to better serve you and to improve the overall user experience.
  • Authenticating your computer: We use cookies to gather information such as IP Address and Browser type to authenticate you and your computer.
  • Security and verification: To help us maintain security and verify your details while you use the Website as you navigate from page to page, which enables you to avoid having to re-enter your details each time you enter a new page.
  • Personalized Content: To remember how you have customized your use of this site, such as to retain login information when you choose "Remember my User ID," when logging onto our Website.

Use of Third Parties

We may use third party providers, such as Adobe Analytics and Google Analytics, to help collect and compile information like the number of visitors to our site, where visitors have come to our Website from, and the other pages that they visit. Our third party providers may also use cookies to deliver advertisements that are more relevant to you and your interests and to help measure the effectiveness of an advertising campaign.

These third parties may collect your IP address or device identifier on the date you visit a site, but not your name or other identifying information. We do not combine information collected through the use of these third party providers with other personal information we may have about you.

Third party providers have their own cookie and privacy policies. Google’s ability to use and share information collected by Google Analytics is restricted by the Google Analytics Terms of Service and the Google Privacy Policy. Likewise, Adobe’s ability to use and share information collected by Adobe Analytics is restricted by the Adobe Privacy Policy.

Interest-based Advertising

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 Website, 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 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 sites (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 any advertising you may be shown when you are on other third party websites.

Opting-Out

As part of our commitment to fair information practices, we are a participant and supporter of the Digital Advertising Alliance of Canada's "AdChoices" initiative to allow you to opt out of the use of information about your activities on other websites to provide you with Interest-based advertising.

AdChoices is a self-regulatory programme that requires participating companies to include an AdChoices icon in any ads that use interest-based advertising. It's intended to provide consumers with greater transparency around interest-based advertising and to give them the ability to opt-out of this type of targeting. You can learn more at www.youradchoices.ca. You can also click on the AdChoices icon which appears at the bottom of our Website or ads. In all countries where AdChoices exists, we participate.

You can opt out of Adobe Analytics, and out of interest-based Adobe ads using Adobe Opt Out Settings.

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 using AdChoices, you may still see on-line advertising.  It just means that any advertising you see will not be customized for you.

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 Website may rely on cookies to enable certain functionality. If you choose to disable cookies, some of the services available on our Website may not work properly.
