  1. WHAT IS A COOKIE?

    Cookies are small text files that are sent to and stored on your computer or on your mobile device from our servers. They are widely used in order to make websites and cloud-based services work in a better, more efficient way. For example, they can recognize you and remember important information that will make your use of a website or cloud-based service more convenient (e.g., by allowing you to enter a password less frequently or remembering your user preferences).

    Taken alone, cookies do not personally identify you – rather, they merely recognize your Web browser.  Unless you choose to identify yourself to QASymphony, either by opening an account, filling out a web form (such as by signing up for a free trial) or you have previously identified yourself to us, you remain anonymous.

  2. WHAT COOKIES DO WE USE?

    We use different types of cookies on our Sites to make your interaction with our Sites easy and meaningful – strictly necessary cookies, functionality cookies, analytics cookies, and advertising cookies.  The Sites may include first-party cookies (i.e., cookies that send data directly to QASymphony and agents and contractors acting on our behalf , including cookies used to monitor, analyze, and administer the Sites) and third-party cookies (i.e., cookies that send data to our contractors for their commercial use).

    We use cookies that are session-based and persistent-based.  Session cookies exist only during one session. They disappear from your computer or device when you close your browser software or turn off your computer. Persistent cookies remain on your computer or device after you close your browser or turn off your computer. You can control the use of cookies at the individual browser level (see Section 4 below for instructions on how to do so), but note that if you choose to disable cookies, it may limit your use of certain features or functions on our products, services and websites.
