The BT Asset Management website uses session cookies and permanent cookies, as well as first and third party cookies, for the following purposes:

 

Strictly necessary cookies

They are usually set only in response to the actions of the website visitors requesting various services, such as setting confidentiality preferences, authentication or filling in certain forms. In their browser settings, the visitors (users) can choose to block or to receive a notification about such cookies, in which case certain parts of the website may not work.

 

These cookies do not require consent in order to be placed.

 

Measurement, analysis and performance cookies

 

These cookies allow us to count the website hits and the traffic sources, enabling us to measure and improve its performance. In this way, we can identify the most popular pages and discover the products and services that our website visitors are most interested in. All the information collected by these cookies is aggregated and therefore anonymous. If you do not allow the cookies, we will not know when the website was accessed from a certain IP address. By using Google Analytics and Adform, we collect anonymous data about the website hits, such as the pages viewed, the time spent on each page, the website home page.

Promotion cookies

With the help of these cookies, our partners can also see for which types of products that are on the website, a particular visitor has shown interest, and, on a subsequent visit to another website, will display the advertisements based on the product for which the visitor has shown interest on the website. This type of promotion is called targeted advertising. If you do not allow the promotion cookies, it does not mean that advertisements won’t be delivered to you on other websites, but that the advertisements displayed will be less relevant to you, as an internet user.
