What are Cookies?

Cookies are small text files which are placed on your computer by websites that you visit. They are universally used to ensure websites work as they were designed to and to provide information about site traffic to the owners of the site. We use of cookies or similar technologies to maintain security, enable user choice and improve our sites. We also set cookies for marketing purposes and to provide personalised content and advertising.

When you click on “Accept All Cookies”, AGF will place essential, functional, session, performance and targeting cookies on your browser. You can manage your cookie consent preferences at any time by clicking on the “Custom Settings” in the pop-up banner or on the cookie icon at the bottom left of the screen.

We will not track personal information unless you opt-in. Where we use third party tools (i.e. performance cookies), we ensure that our partners adhere to applicable cookie and data privacy policies.

Essential/Necessary Cookies

Essential cookies do not store any personal identifiable information and are necessary for the website to function. 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 subscription forms. While you cannot turn off these cookies in our preference centre, you can set your browser to block or alert you about these cookies, but then some parts of the site will not work.

Functional Cookies

Functional cookies are required to provide enhanced functionality and a personalized experience but do not capture personal identifiable information. For example, to access the institutional website you must accept these. These types of cookies may be set by us or by third party providers whose services we have added to our pages. If you block or delete functional cookies, you may not be able to view or use the website as intended and some services may not function properly or at all. 

Performance cookies

Performance cookies help us understand how people use our site and to measure that activity. We only use trusted web analytics platforms that provide statistical insight into interaction and behaviours of website visitors. They help us to know which pages are the most and least popular and see how visitors move around the site. These do not capture personal identifiable information, but rather report on general performance which helps us improve the overall user experience. If you do not allow these cookies we will not know when you have visited our site and will not be able to monitor its performance. To read more about these cookies, you can view the Google privacy policy here.

Targeting cookies

AGF uses third party targeting cookies to improve the effectiveness of marketing campaigns, communications and your experience on our website. The third-party providers we use are LinkedIn, Salesforce Marketing Cloud and Google Campaign Manager. These cookies may be used by these companies to build a profile of your interests and show you relevant ads on other sites. They do not store direct personal identifiable information but will track your activity for a given browser and device. If you do not allow these cookies, you will experience less targeted advertising.
