Other tracking technologies used
Web beacons, local storage and scripts
We and our third-party partners may also employ web beacons or clear gifs (aka web beacons/web bugs), local storage (HTML5 storage) and scripts that help better manage content on wellingtonfunds.com. Web beacons are tiny, clear graphics that are embedded invisibly on web pages. They are used to understand and monitor online movements of users so that we may better understand and improve their experiences on wellingtonfunds.com. In contrast to cookies, which are stored on a user’s computer hard drive, web beacons are not stored on a user’s computer or device. We may tie the information gathered to your personal information. Local storage functions similarly to cookies and can be managed through your browser settings. Scripts are lines of code embedded in the source of the website that do not store any information on your device, but enable certain features on the website to operate.
In order to use the internet, every computer on the Internet is assigned, either temporarily or permanently, an Internet Protocol Address (IP Address) by their institution or internet service provider. When our websites or other internet services are accessed, we collect the IP Address of the accessing system as well as statistics on the date, time, internet protocol, and amount of data transferred. We store this information to ensure our ability properly investigate cyber-attacks and to perform analytics on the use of our internet services.
Third party links
When you click on a link to a third-party web site or other third-party resource, the third party may place a cookie from its own site. We do not control the dissemination of these cookies. You should check the relevant third-party web site for more information about these cookies.
Like other aggregated information from wellingtonfunds.com that does not identify individual authorized users, we may analyze and share non-personal information collected through cookies with third parties (such as our business partners and service providers) in marketing materials and in public disclosures.
