The design of the Quekett website means that it cannot function without first-party cookies. In addition to these cookies, the Quekett website sets a first-party cookie when a member of the Club signs in. Without this cookie, a member of the Club would need to sign in each time they go to another page in the Members’ Area of the website. This cookie is deleted when the member signs out. Members can opt to have their Username remembered; this sets a cookie that persists and is not deleted when signing out.

We use this information to help us improve our website, for example by making the navigation easier to use or by improving access to under-used pages.

There are PowerPoint presentations embedded in some pages of the Quekett website that are hosted on Microsoft’s SkyDrive. When you view the presentations, Microsoft may set cookies. For more information, please see the Microsoft Online Privacy Statement.
