Cookies and How PineBridge Uses Them

By using the Website with your browser settings adjusted to accept cookies you consent to our use of cookies and other tools to provide the products and services available on those sites. If you would like to modify your browser to notify you when you receive a new cookie or to disable cookies altogether, please refer to Managing Cookies below.

PineBridge uses cookies for the following purposes:

  • Analytical purposes: Analytical cookies allow PineBridge to recognize, measure and track visitors to the Website. This helps PineBridge improve and develop the way the Website works, for example, by determining whether site visitors can find information easily, or by identifying the aspects of the site that are of the most interest to them.
  • Usage preferences: Some of the cookies on the Website are activated when visitors make a choice about their usage of the site. The Website then 'remembers' the settings preferences of the user concerned. This allows PineBridge to tailor aspects of the site to the individual user.
  • Terms and conditions: PineBridge uses cookies on the Website to record when a site visitor has seen a policy, such as this one, or provided consent, such as consent to the terms and conditions on our Website. This helps to improve the user's experience of the site - for example, it avoids a user from repeatedly being asked to consent to the same terms.
  • Session management: The software that runs the Website uses cookies for technical purposes needed by the internal workings of our servers. For instance, PineBridge uses cookies to distribute requests among multiple servers, authenticate users and determine what features of the site they can access, verify the origin of requests, keep track of information about a user's session and determine which options or pages to display in order for the site to function.
  • Functional purposes: Functional purpose cookies store information that is needed by PineBridge applications to process and operate. For example, where transactions or requests within an application involve multiple workflow stages, cookies are used to store the information from each stage temporarily, in order to facilitate completion of the overall transaction or request.
  • Advertising: Advertising cookies allow PineBridge (or third parties) to monitor the behavior of users of the Website. This information is used to ensure that products and services highlighted to those individuals are targeted in a focused and relevant manner - e.g. through advertisements on the Website or through advertisements on third party websites (e.g. Bloomberg, Agefi.com Handlesblatt.de, etc.) which are based on your experience with the Website; or to monitor the effectiveness of those digital marketing campaigns. PineBridge also monitors whether the adverts displayed on the Websites are of interest to users and retain this information to ensure that adverts seen by users of the Website over a period of time are appropriate.

Sections of the Website may require you to accept the Terms of Use or Cookies Policy to access information. Once accepted, you should not have to go through such process on return visits to the Website within a certain time period. This function is accomplished by the placement of a cookie. With most Internet browsers, you can erase cookies from your device, block cookies, or receive a warning before a cookie is stored. Please refer to your browser instructions or help screen to understand more about these functions. Please be aware, however, that some features and functionality of the Website may become unavailable if cookies are erased or blocked.

PineBridge may use services that collect data remotely using web beacons or tags embedded in the Website content. The data collected includes the operating system and browser being used, what areas are visited, and the duration of such visits. This information is anonymous and does not include your any personally identifiable information or contact information. The aggregated, anonymous data is shared between PineBridge companies and our third party vendor, Google Analytics to improve our site and respond to our visitor’s interests by providing more relevant information.
