COOKIE POLICY

This Cookie Policy applies to Equities First Holdings® (「EFH」, “we”, “us” or “our”). Like most businesses, we employ “cookies” or similar technologies. This Cookie Policy tells you about the use of Cookies and similar technologies on www.equitiesfirst.com (the “Site”). 

When you first access the Site from certain jurisdictions, you will receive a message advising you that cookies and similar technologies are in use. By clicking “accept cookies”, closing the message, or continuing to browse the Site, you signify that you understand and agree to the use of these technologies, as described in this Cookie Policy. 

You do not have to accept cookies and consent can be withdrawn at any time (see How to Control Cookies, below). You can change your browser settings to refuse or restrict cookies, and you may delete them after they have been placed on your device at any time. If you do not accept or delete our cookies, some areas of the Site that you access may take more time to work, or may not function properly. 

WHAT ARE COOKIES?: 

Cookies are small files containing a string of characters that we may store on your computer or mobile device when you visit the Site. When you visit the Site again, the cookies allow us to recognize your browser. Cookies may store your preferences and other information but cannot read data off your hard disk or read cookie files created by other sites. Cookies set by a website owner (in this case, EFH) are called “first party cookies”. Cookies set by parties other than the website owner are called “third party cookies”. Third party cookies enable us to provide third party features or functionality through the Site (i.e. advertising, social media functions and analytics). 

THE COOKIES WE USE: 

Cookies make the use of the Site easier by, among other things, saving your preferences. We may also use cookies to deliver content tailored to your interests. Our cookies may enable us to relate your use of the Site to personal data that you previously submitted. The information that we collect with cookies allows us to statistically analyze usage of the Site, and to improve and customize our content and other offerings. However, we only disclose information collected with cookies to third parties on an aggregated basis without the use of any information that personally identifies you. The specific types of first party and third party cookies placed by the Site and the purposes they perform are described in the table below: 

HOW TO CONTROL COOKIES: 

When you first access the Site from certain jurisdictions, you will receive a message advising you that cookies and similar technologies are in use. By clicking “accept cookies”, closing the message, or continuing to browse the website, you signify that you understand and agree to the use of these technologies, as described in this Cookie Policy. You do not have to accept cookies and consent can be withdrawn at any time, although you may not be able to use certain features on the Site. You can do this by clicking the appropriate opt-out provided in the cookie table above or by activating the settings on your browser that allows you to refuse all or some cookies. 

WEB BEACONS: 

As well as cookies, we use other technologies to recognize and track visitors to the Site. 

A web beacon (also known as a “tracking pixel” or “clear GIF”) is a clear graphic image (typically a one-pixel tag) that is delivered through a web browser or HTML e-mail, typically in conjunction with a cookie. 

Web beacons allows us, for example, to monitor how users move from one page within our websites to another, to track access to our communications, to understand whether users have come to our websites from an online advertisement displayed on a third-party website, to measure how ads have been viewed and to improve site performance. 

TARGETING ADVERTISING: 

Please note that third parties (including, for example, advertising networks and providers of external services like web traffic analysis services) use cookies, over which we have no control. These cookies are likely to be analytical/performance cookies or targeting cookies. These companies may use information about your visits to this and other websites in order to provide relevant advertisements about goods and service that you may be interested in. They may also employ technology that is used to measure the effectiveness of advertisements. 

CHANGES TO THIS COOKIE POLICY: 

We will update this Cookie Policy from time to time, so please check back periodically. 

The provisions contained in this Cookie Policy supersede all previous notices or policies regarding our use of cookies and similar technology on the Site. 

We encourage you to check frequently to see the current Cookie Policy to be informed of how EFH is committed to protecting your information and providing you with improved content on the Site in order to enhance your experience.
