The cookies we use and their functions

Performance cookie
Performance cookies measure the number of visitors to a website and collect information about how visitors use the site, for example, by recording which pages users go to most often.

Targeting or Advertising cookie
Advertising cookies are used to recognize you and present you with tailored offers. Information about your visits to different websites is collected over time by your browser. This information is used to predict your preferences and present you with the ads that are most likely to interest you.

Some cookies are only kept on your computer during your browsing session, i.e., until you leave our website (these are known as “session” cookies), whereas other cookies remain in your browser after the session unless they expire or are deleted (these are known as “persistent” cookies). Letko Brosseau uses both session cookies and persistence cookies, which will allow your use of our website to be faster, easier and tailored to your interests.

Use of Third Parties

We may use third party providers, such as Google Analytics, to help collect and compile information like the number of visitors to our site, where visitors have come to the site from and the pages they visit. Such third party providers may also use cookies to deliver advertisements that are more relevant to you and your interests and to help measure the effectiveness of an advertising campaign.

These third parties may collect your IP address or device identifier on the date you visit a site, but not your name or other identifying information. We do not combine information collected through the use of these third party providers with other personal information we may have about you.

Third party providers have their own cookie and privacy policies. Google’s ability to use and share information collected by Google Analytics is restricted by the Google Analytics Terms of Service and the Google Privacy Policy.
