- Cookies web beacons, pixel tags, log files, local storage, and other similar mechanisms to automatically collect information. Cookies are small data files that are placed on your computer or mobile device when you visit a website. Cookies set by the website owner (in this case, Quotient) are called “first party cookies”. Cookies set by parties other than the website owner are called “third party cookies”. Third party cookies enable third party features or functionality to be provided on or through the website (e.g. like advertising, interactive content and analytics). The parties that set these third party cookies can recognise your computer both when it visits the website in question and also when it visits certain other websites. Cookies are not the only way to recognise or track visitors to a website. We may use other, similar technologies from time to time, like web beacons (sometimes called “tracking pixels” or “clear gifs”). These are tiny graphics files that contain a unique identifier that enable us to recognise when someone has visited our Website. We use first party and third party cookies for several reasons. Some cookies are required for technical reasons in order for our Website to operate, and we refer to these as “essential” or “strictly necessary” cookies. Other cookies also enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance the experience on our Website. Third parties serve cookies through our Website for advertising, analytics and other purposes. The specific types of first and third party cookies served through our Websites and the purposes they perform are described below. Please note that the specific cookies served may vary depending on the specific Website you visit.

Keeping your data
We will only retain your personal data for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements. As soon as we do not need your personal data to offer our full services to you, we’ll make sure it’s either deleted or anonymised.
International data transfers
Quotient is headquartered in the United States. If you are located outside the United States, your information is transferred to the United States — or to another country in which we (or our affiliates or service providers) operate.
Whenever we transfer your personal data out of the EEA, we ensure a similar degree of protection is afforded to it by ensuring at least one of the following safeguards is implemented:
- We will transfer your personal data to countries that have been deemed to provide an adequate level of protection for personal data by the European Commission.
- Where we need to make transfers to other countries, for example when we use certain service providers located outside the EEA or UK, we may use specific contracts approved by the European Commission which give personal data the same protection it has in Europe.
We use various physical, electronic, and administrative procedures to safeguard the confidentiality of the personal information we collect and process. We use industry standard security measures to protect your personal data from being accidentally or maliciously accessed, used, altered or deleted without explicit authorisation. However, as no security measures are perfect or impenetrable, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you transmit to us or that unauthorized access or theft of data might not occur.
- Data portability
This applies to information you give us. You can ask us to transfer this information to another data controller in an easy-to-read manner.
You can ask us to correct inaccurate or incomplete information.
