The Queen Shirley Foundation uses session cookies and persistent cookies in connection with providing our Site.
You can instruct your browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. However, if you do not accept cookies, part of the Site may function differently and not as well and you may not be able to use some portions of our Site.
The types of cookies we use are:
Session Cookies. We use session cookies to operate our Site and for security purposes.
Persistent Cookies. We use persistent cookies to remember your preferences and various settings.

For example, if you receive commercial email communications from us (e.g., newsletters and communications regarding our services) but do not wish to receive further information, you may “opt out” of receiving such by following the instructions contained in those email messages. If you registered for an account on our website, whether to sign up for a workshop or group or otherwise, at any time you may request that we deactivate your account. Your account will also have an Account Profile, which, among other things, allows users to indicate their preference to “opt out” of receiving volunteer information, or “opt in” to receiving communications from business partners and sponsors of The Queen Shirley Foundation. Each User may indicate such preferences during the initial registration process or may visit the “My Profile” section of the Site to update their preferences.

At any time, you may change your browser cookie settings, and you may also contact us to deactivate your account and stop receiving marketing or other communications.
