Cookies Website Notice and Disclosure Statement
What are cookies?
Cookies are small pieces of data sent from a website and stored on a user’s web browser. When the user browses the same website in the future, the cookie notifies the website of the user’s previous activity. Cookies do not harm your computer in any way, and some are automatically deleted after a certain period of time, such as six months.
Yes. Like virtually all websites, we use certain types of cookies on our sites. This allows us to collect non-personal information through a variety of technologies. This helps us identify visitors who return to our site and tells us such things as how many users visited our site, the pages that were accessed, and whether there were any technical problems in loading pages or navigating through our site. By collecting this information, we learn what parts of our sites are the most interesting or valuable to our users, and can monitor overall interest in our websites. It also lets us spot technical problems with our site so we can correct them right away. This, in turn, helps us upgrade our websites and improve our offerings for our visitors.
Am I required to accept cookies to use the QIDC websites?
What information do you receive about me through cookies?
There are four general categories of cookies that are used on websites:
- Strictly necessary (or essential) cookies. These cookies are essential in order to enable you to move around a website and use its features, such as services you have asked for. Without these cookies, those services would not be available to you. This includes, for example, browsing as a registered user, accessing secure areas of the site, or making a purchase through the site. Like all public websites, our site uses strictly necessary cookies.
- Performance cookies. These cookies collect information about how visitors use a website, for instance which pages visitors go to most often, and if they get error messages from web pages. These cookies don’t collect information that identifies a visitor. All information these cookies collect is aggregated and therefore anonymous. It is only used to improve how the website works. Like virtually all websites, we use performance cookies on our sites.
- Functionality cookies. These cookies allow the website to remember choices you make (such as your user name, language or the region you are in) and provide enhanced, more personal features. This allows you to have a better experience while using the site. The information these cookies collect may be anonymized and they cannot track your browsing activity on other websites. Like virtually all websites, we use functionality cookies on our sites.
- Targeting or advertising cookies. These cookies collect information about your browsing habits in order to make advertising relevant to you and your interests. They are also used to limit the number of times you see an advertisement as well as help measure the effectiveness of the advertising campaign. They are usually placed by advertising networks with the website operator’s permission. They remember that you have visited a website and this information is shared with other organizations such as advertisers. Quite often targeting or advertising cookies will be linked to site functionality provided by the other organization. QIDC does not use advertising cookies on its websites and does not allow third parties to use those types of cookies on its sites.
What happens if I choose not to disable cookies on my computer?
Unless you disable such technologies, by using our website and online services, you agree that we can place these types of cookies and related technologies on your device.
What are web beacons?
Some types of cookies collect aggregate information which helps us to improve our websites by providing information, for example, on loading errors and the most visited webpages. Certain pages on our site may contain web beacons (also known as Internet tags, pixel tags and clear GIFs). We uses web beacons to help display content to visitors and to generate statistics regarding web traffic and trends. Web beacons cannot identify you as an individual.
What are advertising cookies?
Advertising cookies are cookies that target an individual to purchase certain items based upon their web browsing practices. For example, if you browse golf clubs on the web, and if the websites that you use (or the search engine) has installed advertising cookies, you may see pop-up ads for other sites that sell golf products or have content relating to golf. QIDC does not use advertising cookies on its websites and does not allow third parties to use those types of cookies on its sites.
Does QIDC permit third parties to install cookies or similar web technologies on its websites?
As a general rule, we do not permit any third parties (such as advertisers) to install cookies on our websites or engage in behavioral advertising. However, on some of our websites, such as our social networking pages, it is possible that individuals have uploaded third party content, such as videos from YouTube or elsewhere, or embedded content and sharing tools from other third party sites. Since we do not control the dissemination of cookies by any sites that are not owned or operated by QIDC, you should check the relevant third party website(s) for more information about these cookies, and whether and how you may opt out of receiving them. Generally speaking, however, you may disable third party cookies by adjusting your browser settings. Instructions may be found at www.aboutcookies.org.
