Cookie Policy

 

This Cookie Policy is applicable to Sprott Inc. and all of its affiliates, subsidiaries and managed entities or products (collectively, the “Sprott Group”, “we”, “our” or “us”).

This Cookie Policy will apply when you access any of our websites (“Websites”), using any device.

We may update this Cookie Policy from time to time. The "Last updated" date of our Cookie Policy is included below.

What Cookies Are and Our Use of Cookies

Like many companies, some or all of our Websites may use cookies. A cookie is a small file of letters and numbers that is placed on your computer's hard drive or other devices (such as mobile devices or tablets) when you visit certain websites. We may use cookies or similar technologies such as pixels or local storage (collectively referred to in this Privacy Policy as "cookies") to collect information when you access or use our websites. In some instances, our use of cookies may involve the collection and processing of personal data. We may use cookies to tell us, for example, whether you have visited us before or if you are a new visitor and to help us identify site features in which you may have the greatest interest. Cookies may enhance your online experience by saving your preferences while you are visiting a particular site. In other cases, we may also use cookies to collect non-personal information that is anonymous and aggregated and cannot be attributed back to you. For example, we also may use automated devices and applications, such as Google Analytics (to opt out, click here) to evaluate usage of our websites. We use these tools to obtain aggregated statistical information about the use of the websites to help us improve our services, performance, and user experiences. These analytics providers may use cookies and other technologies to perform their services, and may combine the information that they collect through the websites with other information that they have collected. Please note that optional cookies such as analytics cookies will not be set unless you accept them.

For more information on cookies, including how to see what cookies have been set, please see www.whatarecookies.com, www.aboutcookies.org or www.allaboutcookies.org.  

Our use of cookies may sometimes involve the collection and processing of personal data.  All personal data will be processed in accordance with our Privacy Policy. To learn more about how we process your personal data, please see our Privacy Policy at https://sprott.com/privacy-policy/.

Most of the cookies we use are "personalisation cookies" or "authentication / functionality cookies" that are used to recognise repeat visitors to the Websites and "analytics / performance cookies"   which monitor how visitors use our Websites and give us a better understanding of what content visitors are spending most time reading.

Cookies are stored for different periods of time on your computer or device depending on whether they are "session cookies" or "persistent cookies".  In particular:

  • Session cookies allow us to identify your computer or device as you use our Websites, so that you are not treated as a new visitor each time. These cookies also note your browser's capabilities. Session cookies are deleted when you close your browser or leave our Websites, and are only stored on your computer or device for that browser session or Websites' visit.
  • Persistent cookies are stored on your computer or device for a period of time after you close your browser or leave our Websites. These cookies may be used for remembering your preferences and choices when using our Websites or to target advertising.

The types of cookies used on our Websites are as follows:

Cookie Type

Details

Strictly Necessary / Essential

These cookies are essential for the operation of our Websites. They include, for example, cookies that enable you to log into secure areas and cookies that ensure the content of a page loads quickly and effectively by distributing the workload across several computers (often referred to as "load balancing" or "reverse proxying").

Statistics

These cookies are used to help us to improve our Websites over time, by giving us insights into how the various sections of the Websites are used and how users interact with the Websites, such as which pages are visited most frequently. The information collected is generally aggregated statistical information.

Preferences

These cookies are used to identify unique visitors to the Websites. If you log in to the Websites, these are the cookies that allow us to remember who you are and what your preferences are so that we can provide you with access to pages personalised for you, for example your account pages or your selected font size. These cookies help keep your visit to the site secure. These cookies can also enable enhanced, more personal features and to provide services you have asked for such as watching a video.

Marketing

These cookies collect information about your browsing habits to make advertising relevant to you and your interests. These cookies collect the most information about users.

We do not use cookies to collect information such as credit card numbers.

You will see a message on our Websites before we store cookies (other than strictly necessary/essential cookies) on your computer or device for the first time, which describes the types of cookies we use and what information they collect, and allows you to confirm your cookie preferences. You may also block cookies by activating the setting on your browser that allows you to refuse the setting of all or some cookies. Your browser's 'help' or 'support' function will tell you how to do this. You can also change your cookie preferences at any time by clicking here: https://us.norton.com/internetsecurity-privacy-how-to-clear-cookies.html

Please note, however, that without cookies you may not be able to take full advantage of all our Websites' features. For example, we may use a cookie to remember your preferences (for example, your preferred language or settings) and so:

  • If you delete all of your cookies you will have to update your preferences with us again.
  • If you use a different device, computer profile or browser you will have to tell us your preferences again.

If you provide inconsistent preferences, we will endeavour to update your preferences in a timely and accurate manner.
