Cookie Policy

An overview of how we use cookies to improve your experience on our website.

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in the European Union directs that websites need to inform users of the cookies they set and that users should be able to opt out of non-essential cookies if they wish to. We take great care to protect your privacy on our Website, and we urge you to learn more about cookies and your rights in general. This will help you make informed decisions and better protect your privacy online.

This policy applies to our Website, at a11yquest.com, and any subdomains associated with that Website (such as www.a11yquest.com). Any other website we may link to (or redirect to) will have its own policies, which you should review separately.

Our policy

We only use cookies necessary to make our Website work for its core purpose. We do not set cookies for analytics, advertising, or marketing reasons. We never give any other website access to data via cookies on our Website.

The cookies we create

We only use necessary cookies, meaning that basic features required to use the site, such as logging in, will not work without them. We only ever set cookies at the point where it is required and we limit the lifespan of each cookie to what we consider the shortest reasonable amount of time possible.

Below is a complete list of every cookie we set, its purpose, and its lifespan. You should not block these cookies because the Website may not work without them.

CookiePurpose
cookie_noticeUsed to record that you were shown the cookie notice banner with a link to our Cookie Policy. This cookie is necessary as we rely upon it to comply with privacy regulations. Deleting, blocking, or editing this cookie may cause the cookie notice banner to re-display even if you have already dismissed it. This cookie will expire after one year.
signin_displayUsed to record whether your navigation bar should display a link to "Sign In" or "Sign Out." This cookie is necessary to provide you with an easy-to-find link to either sign in or out of the members-only portions of our Website. Deleting, blocking, or editing this cookie will not affect whether or not you can access the members-only content but may change which link is shown in the navigation, for example, by displaying "Sign In," even if you are already signed in. This cookie is limited to the browser session, meaning it will automatically be deleted when you close the browser window.
signin_ptrtUsed to record the page to return to when you request a members-only page but are not yet logged in. In that scenario you can visit or membership management provider's website to authorize your membership status and, upon returning, be redirected back to the page you were originally trying to access. This cookie is necessary to provide you with a seamless sign in journey. Deleting, blocking, or editing this cookie will not affect whether or not you can access the members-only content but may cause you to be sent to our homepage after you sign in, instead of the specific web page you were originally trying to access. This cookie is limited to the browser session, meaning it will automatically be deleted when you close the browser window.
__sess and session_dataUsed to remember specific session data related to your access to members-only portions of our Website. This cookie is necessary to browse web pages that require a valid membership subscription without having to sign in again on each page. Deleting this cookie will result in your having to sign in again or being denied access to some web pages even if you are already signed in. These cookies are limited to the browser session, meaning they will automatically be deleted when you close the browser window.

All modern web browsers allow you to limit, delete, or disable cookies. Consult your particular web browser’s settings to find out how to do the following:

Add-ons and extensions for managing cookie permissions are also available. Refer to your web browser’s documentation or settings to determine how find and install those extensions.
