Analytical Information
We use Google Analytics software to collect anonymised information about how you use the site and it uses third party cookies in this process. We do this to understand how users are using this site to help us improve it.

Google Analytics stores information about:
  • the pages you visit on irseexam.co.uk
  • how long you spend on each irseexam.co.uk page
  • how you got to the site
  • what you click on while you are visiting the site

Google Analytics does not collect or store your personal information (e.g. your name or address) so the statistics gathered cannot be used to identify who you are.

We do not allow Google to use or share our analytics data.

Google Analytics sets the following cookies:

__utma - Used to distinguish users and sessions. The cookie is created when the javascript library executes and no existing __utma cookies exists. The cookie is updated every time data is sent to Google Analytics. Expires 2 years from set/update.
__utmt - Used to throttle request rate. Expires after 10 minutes.
__utmb - Used to determine new sessions/visits. The cookie is created when the javascript library executes and no existing __utmb cookies exists. The cookie is updated every time data is sent to Google Analytics. Expires 30 mins from set/update.
__utmc - Not used in ga.js. Set for interoperability with urchin.js. Historically, this cookie operated in conjunction with the __utmb cookie to determine whether the user was in a new session/visit. Expires at end of browser session.
__utmz - Stores the traffic source or campaign that explains how the user reached your site. The cookie is created when the javascript library executes and is updated every time data is sent to Google Analytics. Expires 6 months from set/update.
__utmv - Used to store visitor-level custom variable data. This cookie is created when a developer uses the _setCustomVar method with a visitor level custom variable. This cookie was also used for the deprecated _setVar method. The cookie is updated every time data is sent to Google Analytics. Expires 2 years from set/update.

You can opt out of Google Analytics cookies.
