Why Are Cookies Essential to Alegre Associates’ Website?

This website, along with many others, uses cookies. Cookies help us to understand how users navigate around sites and in some cases let us tailor the content to fit the needs of our site’s visitors. None of the cookies we use collect your personal information and they can’t be used to identify you.

Types of Cookies

The length of time a cookie stays on your device depends on its type. We use two types of cookies on our website.

Session cookies are temporary cookies which only exist during the time you use the website (or more strictly, until you close the browser after using the website). Session cookies help our websites remember what you chose on the previous page, avoiding the need to re-enter information.

Cookies in E-mails

As well as the cookies we use on our website, we use cookies and similar technologies in some e-mails. These help us to understand whether you’ve opened an e-mail and how you’ve interacted with it. If you have enabled images, cookies may be set on your computer or device. Cookies will also be set if you click on any link within the email. The types of cookies we use are:

Web beacons: tiny, invisible images placed in emails to tell us whether you’ve opened them (and if so how often), how you interacted with them (for example the time you spent reading the e-mail), which e-mail software and web browser you used, which device you used and your IP address. We also use web beacons to help us display e-mails in the best format for your device.

Link tracking: our e-mails contain a number of hyperlinks, each of which has a unique tag. When you click on one of these links the mailing company logs the click so that we can understand who has clicked through from an e-mail to our website. We use this information to tailor future messages to you.

Cookies: our process for delivering e-mails may cause cookies to be set when you download images or when you click on a link.

Making Choices About Cookies

If you don’t want to accept cookies from our e-mails, simply close the e-mail before downloading any images or clicking on any links. You can also set your browser to restrict or reject cookies. These settings will apply to all cookies on websites and e-mails.

In some instances, depending on your e-mail or browser settings, cookies in an e-mail may be automatically accepted (for example, when you’ve added an e-mail address to your address book or safe senders list). Please check your e-mail browser or device instructions for more information on this.
