What are cookies?
A cookie is a small software file stored on your computer or mobile device when you visit a website.
Cookies set by the website owner (Quickwork) are referred to as “first party” cookies. Cookies set by parties other than the website owner (but with the owner’s permission) are called “third party” cookies. These cookies are generally associated with a software vendor that provides services to Quickwork. The parties that set third party cookies can recognize your computer both when it visits the Quickwork website and also when it visits certain other websites.
Quickwork uses first and third party cookies for several reasons. Some cookies are necessary for the operation of the Quickwork website: we refer to these as “essential cookies.” Other cookies enable us to track online behavior of our Users, both individually and in aggregate. We use this information to better understand, improve and optimize the website experience for our Users.
We utilize session cookies, which allow us to uniquely identify your browser while you are logged in and to process your online transactions. Session cookies disappear from your computer when the web browser is closed or computer is turned off. Session cookies are required for site operation. We also utilize persistent cookies to make it easier to log into and use the Service. Persistent cookies remain on computers after the web browser is closed or the computer is turned off.
How to refuse:
You can block or delete these cookies by following the instructions under the heading “How can I control cookies?”
However, because the session cookie is strictly necessary to deliver the Quickwork Service to you, you cannot refuse it and still use the Service. The persistent cookies can be disabled but doing so may impair your use of the Service.

When you access the Service by or through a mobile device (including but not limited to smart-phones or tablets), we may access, collect, monitor and/or remotely store one or more “device identifiers,” such as a unique device identifier (“UDID”). Device identifiers are small data files or similar data structures stored on or associated with your mobile device, which uniquely identify your mobile device. A device identifier may be data stored in connection with the device hardware, data stored in connection with the device’s operating system or other software, or data sent to the device by Quickwork. A device identifier may convey information to us about how you browse and use the Service. A device identifier may remain persistently on your device, to help you log in faster and enhance your navigation through the Service. Some features of the Service may not function properly if use or availability of device identifiers is impaired or disabled.
Device identifiers are processed by us to provide information about Service usage and improve the operation of the Service.
