COOKIES AND OTHER TRACKING TECHNOLOGIES
We collect certain information through tracking technologies used on the Site, such as cookies (data files placed on a device when it is used to visit the Site) and mobile analytics software.

Persistent cookies enable us to track, store, and target the interests of our users to enhance the experience on our Site. While most browsers are automatically set up to accept cookies, you can adjust your browser settings to reject cookies or to have your computer warn you each time a cookie is being sent. Cookies are typically browser-specific. If you use different browsers, you will have to define your preferences on each browser. You can delete all or some of these cookies from your computer by activating the “delete cookies” feature in your browser. If you have several browsers, you must reiterate the deletion request for each browser. If you use different devices, you will need to configure each device to suit your cookie preferences.

Do Not Track Policy.
Certain web browsers may provide an option by which you may request your browser to inform websites you visit that you do not wish your activities to be tracked by cookies or other persistent identifiers, commonly called “Do Not Track Signals.” Our website currently does not respond to Do Not Track Signals. If you block cookies, certain features on our website may not work. If you block or reject cookies, not all of the tracking described here will stop.
LINKS TO THIRD-PARTY SITES
Our website may contain third-party links, including third-party integrations. Through these links and third-party integrations, you may be providing information (including personal information) directly to the third party, us, or both. You acknowledge and agree that we are not responsible for how those third parties collect, share, or use your information. Because EQ Office has no control over the privacy practices or content of these linked sites, we recommend that you carefully review the privacy policies of every third-party service that you visit or see, including those third parties you interact with through our website.
Our website may also serve third-party content that contains their own cookies or tracking technologies. We do not control the use of those technologies.
We employ reasonable technical and organizational security safeguards to help protect your personal information. However, the Internet is not 100% secure, and there is always some risk in transmitting information over the Internet. Therefore, we cannot promise you that your use of our website will be completely safe. You should use secure methods when transmitting sensitive information to us.
You may opt out of receiving promotional emails from EQ Office by following the instructions in those communications. If you opt out, we may still send you non-promotional emails, such as those about our ongoing business relations.
