Sharing of Data

SCQF will not disclose any of your personal information to a third party without your consent, unless we believe, in good faith, that the law requires it or that the rights or property of SCQF need to be protected. We encourage you to review each Third Party Website's privacy policy before disclosing any personally identifiable information.

Links to Other Sites

SCQF contains links to other sites not affiliated with SCQF. These sites have their own policies and practices with respect to online privacy, and SCQF cannot be responsible for the privacy practices or the content of these unaffiliated web sites.


A ‘cookie’ is a small amount of data, which often includes an anonymous unique identifier that is sent to your browser from a web server and stored on your computer’s hard drive. Cookies do not damage your computer. Each website can send its own cookie to your browser if your browser’s preferences allow it, but (to protect your privacy) your browser only permits a web site to access the cookies it has already sent to you, not the cookies sent to you by other sites. You can decide if you want to accept cookies by changing the settings on your browser to accept all cookies, reject all cookies, or notify you when a cookie is set.

SCQF uses cookies to assign identification to your individual browser. This identifies your browser, but not you, to our servers every time you visit our network. Cookies by themselves cannot be used to find out the identity of any user. Unless you voluntarily advise us, SCQF will never know who you are, even though we assign your browser a cookie.

The information gathered through the use of cookies allows SCQF to offer a quality service and easily accessible online content to our users, and catalogue traffic patterns throughout the website in a manner that provides personal privacy protection.

We also keep track of your IP address to gather broad demographic information about you, such as your location and your Internet Service Provider. SCQF may also collect aggregate information on how our users are utilising the site. This might include information regarding traffic patterns through the site.
