Cookies are useful because they allow a website to recognise a user’s device and help us determine preferences; let users navigate between pages efficiently; verify the user and carry out other essential checks that ensure the data you interact with is accurate and relevant to your account. They allow you to use functions such as being able to search the qualifications on your account or to ensure the correct user is taking the correct assessment. We use them to safeguard your privacy when browsing the site.
We use analytics cookies to help us make our website better for those who visit it regularly. They help us work out what users like and don’t like and how we can improve things for you, but this data is collected and stored anonymously.
Some of the functions that cookies perform can also be achieved using similar technologies, which we refer to here as cookies throughout this policy.
