How we use cookies

Cookies are small data files that are sent to and stored on your computer, smartphone or other device used to access the internet, whenever you visit a website. We use cookies to enable and improve certain functions on our website and gain feedback on how our website is used. If you choose to switch certain cookies off, it will affect how our website works.

Cookies are useful because they allow a website to recognise the device you are using. As the First Sentier Investors group are based in various jurisdictions and operate different websites for each regional business, we use your IP address to identify your location, and use cookies to store general information such as the region where you are based, the language the site is being viewed in (for example English, Chinese) and the type of client you are. This helps us to tailor our website to better suit your requirements. The Cookies we use here are ‘session’ cookies and will be removed every time you leave our website.

When you browse this website, you do so on the basis of these Terms and Conditions, a Cookie may set if you have accepted them. This can mean that you don’t have to re-accept them on every visit. This type of cookie is ‘persistent’ as they remember your preferences. Every time we amend our Terms and Conditions, or on an annual basis, a new Cookie will be set and you will be asked to re-accept our Terms and Conditions.

We use analytics cookies to collect information on website activity (such as the number of users who visit our website, the date and time of visits, the number of pages viewed, navigation patterns, what country and what systems users have used to access the site and, when entering our website from another website, the address of that web site). This information on its own does not identify an individual but it does provide us with statistics that can be used to analyse and improve our website. Visit Google’s site for an overview of privacy at Google and information on how to opt out of the Google Analytics cookie. These Cookies are ‘session’ cookies.

We use automation cookies placed by Pardot and Salesforce. Pardot tracks visitor and prospect activities on our website and landing pages by setting cookies on your browsers, i.e. when prospects forward emails, the result will be additional prospects’ activity tracked on the original recipients’ prospect account. Cookies are set to remember preferences (like form field values) when you return to our site following a previous visit. Pardot also sets a cookie for logged-in users to maintain the session and remember table filters.

Pardot sets first-party cookies for tracking purposes, to allow us to improve our content, and sets third-party cookies for redundancy. Using first-party and third-party cookies together is standard in the marketing automation industry. Pardot cookies don’t store personally identifying information, only a unique identifier. Pardot sets first-party cookies on tracker subdomains and Pardot domains. 

We use targeting cookies to allow us to match external advertising messages with the pages that you have visited on our website, with the intention of providing you follow-up information. You can opt-out of this service by visiting the Network Advertising Initiative opt-out page.

The browsers of most computers, smartphones and other web-enabled devices are usually set up to accept cookies. If your browser preferences allow it, you can configure your browser to accept all cookies, reject all cookies, or notify you when cookies are set. Each browser is different, so check the "Help" menu of your browser to learn about how to change your cookie preferences.

However, please remember that cookies are often used to enable and improve certain functions on our website. If you choose to switch certain cookies off, it will affect how our website works and certain functionality may not work. More information about cookies can be found on
