What is a cookie?
A cookie is a text-only string of information that a website transfers to the cookie file of the browser on your computer’s hard disk so that the website can remember who you are. Cookies alone cannot be used to identify you.
Cookies allow web applications to respond to you as an individual. The web application (e.g Google AdWords) can tailor its operations to your needs, likes and dislikes by gathering and remembering information about your preferences.
ChangeQuest primarily uses Google Analytics to collect data to improve your experience on visiting our website. We use traffic log data to identify which pages are being used. This helps us analyse data about web traffic to improve our website and tailor it to customer needs.
A cookie does not itself give us access to your computer or any information about you. You can choose to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. This may prevent you taking full advantage of the website.
Links to other websites
Our website may contain links to other websites of interest. However, once you have used these links to leave our site, you should note that we do not have any control over that other website. We cannot be responsible for the protection and privacy of any information which you provide whilst visiting such sites, and these are not governed by this privacy statement.
