Artisan Partners' sites utilize a few different technologies to collect, store, and aggregate data about usage of our websites. We use electronic tags or identifiers (often called "cookies" so that is how we will refer to them in this notice) to help us understand and analyze use of our sites. This work is either performed directly by us or by a third party we've hired to assist us. We collect information about which pages have been accessed and for how long, the country you are accessing a site from, and certain technical information regarding your computer and operating systems, such as your Internet Protocol address (IP address), domain name and browser, etc.

Certain sections of Artisan Partners' sites require cookies to be enabled to enhance site performance. For example, cookies provide a secure way for us to verify your identity during your online session and any return visits, they enable us to personalize your experience on our sites, and they help enhance site navigation.
