Use of Cookies

Cookies provide information regarding the computer used by a visitor. We use cookies to gather information about your computer in order to enhance your experience on this site and enable certain features.

We use self-expiring session cookies for the purpose of maintaining the test session for a given user. We also use them to anonymously match the session with sessions on other websites developed and maintained by the University of Cambridge Psychometrics Centre. Session matching merely tells us whether it was likely to be the same person using multiple websites we manage, without telling us who this person is. The purpose of this anonymous matching is to investigate relationships between different tests and constructs, for example between spatial reasoning and planning ability, or leadership and personality.

We also use cookies for Google reCAPTCHA, Google Analytics and Twitter Social Plugins.

In order to prevent spambots and protect information sent via our contact form, we use the reCAPTCHA service provided by Google. The service determines whether the form was completed by a human being or was the result of misuse, processed automatically by a computer. The service includes sending the IP address to Google and possibly other data if required by Google for reCAPTCHA. For this purpose, your entry is sent and used by Google. We do not store this data for any other purposes. For more information, visit https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en-GB.

Google Analytics is a web analytics tool that helps website owners understand how visitors engage with their website. Google Analytics customers can view a variety of reports about how visitors interact with their website so that they can improve it. Like many services, Google Analytics uses first-party cookies to track visitor interactions as in our case, where they are used to collect information about how visitors use our site. We then use the information to compile reports and to help us improve our site. Google Analytics collects information anonymously. It reports website trends without identifying individual visitors. You can opt out of Google Analytics without affecting how you visit our site. For more information on opting out of being tracked by Google Analytics across all websites you use, visit http://www.google.com/policies/privacy/partners/.

Twitter Social Plugins are an optional part of the site and one needs to have a Twitter Account to use them. For information on the purpose and scope of the collection of data and the subsequent processing and use of the data by Twitter, as well as your corresponding rights and setting options for controlling privacy, please refer to Twitter's Privacy Policy.

You can adjust the settings on your computer to decline any cookies if you wish. However, if you do not accept cookies, you may not be able to use some portions of our Site. For more information please read the advice at AboutCookies.org.
