Our cookie policy for this website

We collect standard internet log information when you use our website, commonly known as cookies. Overall, this helps us to improve your experience of our website by monitoring the pages that are useful and those that are not.

A cookie in no way gives us access to your computer or any information about you, other than the data you choose to share with us.

We respect your privacy and have robust systems in place to keep your personal information safe and handle it responsibly.

See our privacy policy for more details about how we use your personal information.

What are cookies?

Cookies are small pieces of software (files) that are installed on a computer or mobile device via the browser (e.g. Microsoft Edge, Apple Safari, Google Chrome or Firefox) when you visit a website.

Cookies allow websites to recognise when an individual has previously visited the site and will save some information to recognise when they access the site again.

The types of cookies:

  • Session cookies. Session cookies only exist in temporary memory and are deleted when you close the browser. Any cookie created without an expiration date is automatically a session cookie. Common uses for session cookies include remembering what’s in your shopping cart on an ecommerce site.
  • Persistent cookies. Persistent cookies are written onto your device’s memory and come with an expiration date. You have to manually remove them from your browser.

Persistent type cookies are of two types:

  • First Party Persistent cookies. They are only used by the website that created them, and can last however long the website dictates. They remain on your device even after you close your web browser. Your web browser uses first-party persistent cookies to improve user experience, like remembering that you’re signed in so you don’t need to log in every time you visit the same site.
  • Third Party Persistent cookies (also known as tracking cookies). Like their first-party counterparts, these cookies are stored in your device’s memory and have a set expiration date. Unlike the first-party variety, however, third-party persistent cookies are accessed on websites that didn’t create them (e.g. Google, Facebook, Bing or Infinity). This allows the cookie’s creator to collect and receive data any time the user visits a page with a resource belonging to them.

By using the AFH Wealth Management website, you consent to cookies being used in accordance to this policy.
