This “Cookie Policy” supplements the information set out in our Privacy Notice available at www.quilt.com/privacy-notice, and describes the different types of Cookies (as defined in Section 1 below) we use in connection with our Services.  If you would like to learn more about our data privacy practices, please refer to our Privacy Notice.

1. “Cookies” Explained and Why They are Used

We or authorized third parties may collect certain information by automated means using cookies (which are small data files that are placed on your computer or mobile device that are set by us or by third parties when you visit a website or other online service) and a range of similar technologies, such as web beacons, local or web storage, and embedded scripts, as described below (which we will refer to all such technologies collectively as, “Cookies”).

  • Web Beacons: Web beacons, or “clear gifs,” and single-pixel tags/gifs, or web tags, are tiny graphics with a unique identifier placed on a website or in an email that gathers information about your interaction with that website or email. Because of their small size, they are not visible.
  • Local or Web Storage: Local or web storage refers to other places on a browser or device where information can be stored. It includes both your own device storage and browser cache.
  • Embedded Scripts: An embedded script is a programming code that is designed to collect information about your interactions with our Services, such as the links you click. The code is temporarily downloaded onto your device, is active only while you are connected to our Services and is deactivated or deleted after you are no longer connected.

Cookies collect information such as Usage Information, and are designed to gather information about your interaction with a website or email, such as, the pages visited, links you clicked and/or whether or not an email was opened.  Quilt uses Cookies for purposes such as to provide content or features on our Services, to help us remember you and your preferences, and improve your user experience by making our Services more efficient and relevant to you.  You can find more information about Cookies at: www.allaboutcookies.orgor www.youronlinechoices.eu.

While tracking is widespread over the internet, there are things you can do to minimize these activities with respect to browser Cookies.

Browser Settings & Do Not Track Preferences

  • Browser Settings:  You may alter the Cookie settings in your browser settings at any time. Some browser providers offer comprehensive help relating to cookie management in their products.
