Cookies Policy

This Site uses cookies to collect information about you. Cookies are small data files which are placed on your computer by this Site and which collect certain personal information about you. Cookies enable us to tailor our service offering (including the Site) and to provide you with a better service.

In the tables below you’ll see a description of each cookie that we use, what it does and whether or not it collects personal data about you. Personal data means data which identifies or can be used to identify you as an individual, including online identifiers such as your IP address. It also includes pseudonymous identifiers (e.g. strings of numbers or letters) if it is possible for us to identify you from these.

Please make sure you read our Privacy Statement as well as this cookie policy. More information can also be found in the privacy information section at the end of this cookie policy.

What are cookies?
Cookies are small text files that are placed on your computer, smartphone or other device when you visit our website. A cookie file is stored on your device and allows us, or our third parties to recognise you and make your visit easier and more useful to you when you revisit our website.

How does QPQ use cookies?
Cookies allow us to recognise users (where appropriate), tailor the content on our website to fit the needs of our website's visitors and helps us improve the user experience. Without certain types of cookies enabled, we can't guarantee that the website and your experience of it are as we intended it to be.

Types of cookies
The length of time a cookie stays on your device depends on its type.  We use two types of cookies on our website:
  • Session cookies are temporary cookies which only exist during the time you use the website (or more strictly, until you close the browser after using the website). Session cookies help our website remember what you chose on the previous page, avoiding the need to re-enter information and improve your experience whilst using the website.
  • Persistent cookies stay on your device after you’ve visited our website. For example, if you tick the 'Remember my ID' box when you log onto the Membership Site a persistent cookie will be used, so that the website remembers you the next time you use it. Persistent cookies help us identify you as a unique visitor.

We also categorise our cookies to help our customers understand the specific reason for each cookie.
Essential cookies: These cookies are essential for the running of our website.
We would recommend this type of cookie is not disabled for the following reasons:
  • they allow us to remember your cookie preferences;
  • they allow us to operate Members Site;
  • they allow us to see if something isn't working properly, so we can fix it quickly.

Experience and insight cookies: These cookies help us to make sure you have the best possible experience on our website:
  • they help us to make the website easier to use and help you find what you need more easily; and
  • they help us to test and improve the content you see.


Third party websites 
Our website may link through to third party websites that may also use cookies over which we have no control. We recommend that you check the privacy and cookies policies of those websites for information about the cookies they may use and the collection of personal data.  We can’t accept any responsibility for any content contained in these third party websites.

How you can control and delete cookies
Cookies help you get the most out of our website. You can however set up your browser to delete or refuse some or all of them, or to notify you when you are sent a cookie and therefore choose whether or not to accept it.  You may also delete or refuse, some or all of the cookies, on our website at anytime. 

Please remember, if you do delete some or all your cookies, some features on our website, such as remembering your username, may not work and your experience on our website may be affected.  Unless you’ve adjusted your browser settings so that they’ll delete or refuse cookies, cookies will be issued or reissued when you log on to our website.  If you do decide to delete or refuse cookies but subsequently decide that you would in fact like to allow cookies, you should adjust your browser settings and continue using our website. Cookies will then be sent to and from our website.

If your computer is shared with others, you should either set your browser to refuse cookies before accessing our website or clear cookies stored by the browser every time you close your browser to avoid your email address or other details being displayed in the log on field to a subsequent user of our website.

Generally, cookies which are strictly necessary for the operation of the Site will expire when you leave the Site and close your web browser session. Other cookies may be more permanent or may not expire unless you actively delete them. You can find out more about how to manage cookies and remove them from your computer at the attached third party link http://www.aboutcookies.org/

We will inform you by email or posting a notice on the site before the changes go into effect. The notice will designate a reasonable amount of time (the “Notice Period”) after which the new policy will go into effect for all users.
