Cookie Policy

A “cookie” is a small piece of information sent by a Web server to store in a Web browser so that it can later be read back from that browser. We may use cookies to store some personal preferences for your future visits. Cookies allow us to recognise you more quickly; therefore, your time spent on our site can be more personalised and productive. You’ll find that cookies are an industry standard and are used at most major Web sites in much the same way we use them on the QED website.

We may use third-party site usage tracking companies to analyse your Site visit or to conduct surveys e.g. Google Analytics. When visiting our website these third parties may place or recognise a unique “cookie” on your browser. These companies may use information (not including your name, address, e-mail address or telephone number) about your visits to our website and other Web sites in order to help us understand how to serve you better.

If you wish, you can prevent cookie files from using information about you by either deleting the cookie folder in your browser or by putting your browser’s Privacy setting higher, but doing so will mean that;

  • your use of the Site will be adversely affected (and quite possibly entirely prevented)
  • your experience of this and other sites that use cookies to enhance or personalise your experience will be adversely affected, and
  • you will not be presented with advertising that reflects the way that you use our, and other, sites.

You can find out how to make these changes to your browser at this site: https://www.allaboutcookies.org/manage-cookies/.
