Information Collected Via Technology 

As you use Quibble Genomics, certain technical and usage information may be collected from you, including your Internet protocol address, browser type, device type, and operating system. We also use Cookies and navigational data like Uniform Resource Locators (URL) to gather information regarding the date and time of your visit and the solutions and information for which you searched and viewed. This type of information is collected to make Quibble Genomics and its solutions more useful to you and to tailor the Quibble Genomics experience to meet your special interests and needs. 

An "Internet protocol address" or "IP Address" is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer when you use the Internet.

To assist us in targeting advertising to the right target, we, or our service providers, may track your IP Address when you access Quibble Genomics. 

"Cookies" are small pieces of information that a website sends to your computer's hard drive while you are viewing a website. We may use both session Cookies (which expire once you close your web browser) and persistent Cookies (which stay on your computer until you delete them) to provide you with a more personal and interactive experience with Quibble Genomics. Persistent Cookies can be removed by following your Internet browser help file directions. In order to use our services offered through Quibble Genomics, your web browser must accept Cookies. If you choose to disable Cookies, some aspects of Quibble Genomics may not work properly, and you will not be able to receive our services.
