Cookie notice

This website (https://quantumconsortium.org/) (the “Website”) is operated by SRI International on behalf of the Quantum Economic Development Consortium (“we”, “us”, “our”). We may obtain information about your general internet usage by using a “cookie”. A cookie is a small text file that’s passed to your computer’s hard disk through your web browser, so the website remembers who you are when you return. Cookies are widely used to make websites work or work more efficiently (our Website won’t work without some of the cookies we use). They also provide useful information to website owners.

Functional and non-essential cookies

Cookies that are strictly necessary for our Website to work are called “functional” cookies. These are placed when you land on the relevant page on the Website, and the law states that we do not need your consent to place these.

However, all other cookies are known as “non-essential” cookies. We will only place non-essential cookies where you have given us your explicit consent (e.g. by clicking “Accept all” or “Save preferences” on our cookie banner).

Session and persistent cookies

Cookies can also be categorised as follows:

  • The first type is known as a “session-based” cookie and is allocated to your computer only for the duration of your visit to our Website. It helps you to move around the Website faster. This cookie automatically expires when you close down your browser.
  • The second type is a “persistent” cookie. These cookies store information between visits.

A full list of cookies placed by our Website is included in this Cookie Notice as an Appendix.

Consent to place cookies

When you land on our Website, you will be presented with a cookie banner, asking for your permission for the Website to place non-essential cookies. We will only place such cookies when you have expressly given your consent for this. You can change or withdraw your consent for our Website to place such cookies at any time by updating your preferences below.

You can also check your browser’s instructions for information on how to block all cookies. However, if you block all cookies (including essential cookies) you may not be able to access all or certain parts of our Website. Unless you’ve set your browser to refuse cookies, our system will issue essential cookies as soon you visit our Website.

If you want to delete any cookies that are already on your computer, you should check the instructions for your file management software to locate the file or directory that stores cookies.
