Tell me more about Quicken's Web technologies

Like many Web sites, we use a variety of technologies to manage our sites. Among these are cookies, which are pieces of information that our Web sites provide to your browser. Cookies allow us to track overall site usage and determine areas users prefer. Cookies also allow us to customize your visit to our Web site by recognizing you when you return. You can choose to decline cookies while at our Web site, however, this may limit your ability to access certain areas of the Web site. Most browsers accept and maintain cookies by default. You can check the "Help" menu of your browser to learn how to change your cookie preference or if you are using Microsoft Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator, visit their websites for additional information about cookies.

When we track activity on this or other Intuit Web sites, we collect information such as your IP address, browser type and version, and pages you view. We also keep track of how you got to our site and any links you click on to leave our site. We do not track URLs that you type into your browser, nor do we track you across the Internet once your leave our sites. We use your Web site activity to assist you by reducing the need to re-enter your data and to help us resolve technical support issues. We may also use this information to offer you a personalized Web experience and to tailor our offerings to you. Remember, you control whether you receive Intuit promotional materials.

We may access and set cookies using Web beacons, also known as single-pixel GIFs which are invisible graphical images. These Web beacons tell us useful information regarding our site such as which pages users access. When we send you e-mails, we may include a single-pixel GIF to determine the number of people who open our e-mails. When you click on a link in an e-mail, we record this individual response to allow us to customize our offerings to you.

We use single-pixels, or transparent GIF files, and cookies to help manage our online advertising. These cookies and GIF files are provided on our behalf by our ad-serving service providers and enable us to learn which links bring users to our Web site. Limited demographic and transactional information such as IP address, country, order id, and purchase amount, is transmitted back to our ad-serving service providers when you purchase items from our Web site. This information is anonymous and does not contain your name, address, telephone number, or e-mail address. This information is used only in the aggregate to evaluate which links users find most helpful in reaching our Web site.

Advertising networks that serve ads on our Web sites may assign a different cookie to you. The information collected is anonymous and is not linked to your personal information. These cookies may be used to select which ads you see and determine the effectiveness of this advertising. You may choose to decline cookies from third-party ad servers, which Intuit does not control. If you would like to know more about this practice and your choices about not having this information used by third-party ad servers, please click here.

To provide you with a seamless experience, we may occasionally use framing. Though your browser may indicate you are at Quicken.com, you may be on a partner's site. To determine which site you are on, right-click on the page and then select "properties." Mac users should press the control key, and click their mouse on the site and then look at "View Source."
