Artisan Partners' sites utilize a few different technologies to collect, store, and aggregate data about usage. We may use electronic tags called "cookies" 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, 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. Cookies also help us to understand how people use our sites so we can improve site functionality.
When you come to an Artisan Partners' website, our server sends a cookie to your computer. Standing alone, cookies do not identify you personally; they merely recognize your browser. Generally, personally identifiable information is obtained by us only when you decide to provide it, such as when requesting additional information via email or providing personal information and application materials through the Artisan Partners careers portal.
We use two types of cookies on our sites, temporary cookies and persistent cookies. Temporary cookies are used to store information during a browser session and will expire shortly after concluding a visit to one of our sites. Persistent cookies are used to store information between visits to one of our sites and are stored permanently or for a specified length of time. Persistent cookies are used by Artisan Partners to facilitate easier navigation within our sites and provide a higher level of convenience for the visitor.
