Automatic collection

Moss Adams uses tracking technologies from marketing partners, third party sites, and social media platforms. We use these technologies to gauge interest in and to measure the efficacy of our communications and marketing efforts, compile statistics about visitors who interact with our content, improve technical performance of our sites, and improve the relevance of the information we offer.

Our sites currently do not recognize browser-based "Do Not Track" signals. We or third parties may utilize cookies to enable service and functionality on your device. Cookies are small data files stored on a visitor’s device that assist us in providing you a more customized experience. For instance, a cookie can be used to remember a visitor’s online elections, responses to forms, and content accessed or downloaded. The use of cookies is a common practice for most websites, and visitors have the option to decline cookies. If you decline cookies, you may not be able to experience some of our sites’ functionality. After you finish browsing our sites, it is possible for you to delete cookies from your device if you so choose. BY ACCESSING OUR ONLINE SERVICES, YOU AGREE THAT WE, OR A THIRD PARTY ACTING ON OUR BEHALF, CAN PLACE THESE COOKIES ON YOUR INTERNET-ENABLED DEVICE.

Our website visitors have the capability to share information via third party social media applications, and some sites may allow you to use a social media identity to log in. Such social media applications may collect and use information regarding your interaction with the application. Please note that personal information that you provide via social media applications may be collected and used by other members of that social media application, and those interactions are governed by the privacy policies of the companies that provide the application. After initiating content sharing, your interactions are directly between you and the respective provider or social media platform, and we have no knowledge of your interactions or how such provider uses the data. We encourage you to review each provider’s terms of use and privacy policy before using a social sharing service.

We occasionally use third party web services on our sites to present content within our web pages, for instance, to display videos and social content or to conduct surveys. We cannot prevent these web services from collecting information on your usage of such embedded content, so we recommend you review such third party terms of use and privacy policies.
