This may include your name, address, email, phone number and other details relevant to the service(s) that are of interest to you. We may supplement the information that you provide with other information that we obtain from our dealings with you or which we receive from other organisations.

Cookies on http://www.pysertesting.com
We use standard technology called ‘cookies’ on this website. A cookie is a small data file that is stored on your computer’s hard drive by your web browser when you access a website.
Cookies enable us to understand who has seen which pages and advertisements, to determine how frequently particular pages are visited and to show us the most popular areas of our website. They allow us to enrich your experience of using the website and make it more user-friendly.
Please note; cookies do not contain confidential or person-identifiable information such as your home address, telephone number or credit card details. Please note, if you do turn cookies off this will limit the service that we are able to provide to you and may affect your visitor experience.
The cookie settings on this website are set to ‘allow all cookies’ to give you the very best experience. If you continue without changing these settings, you consent to this – but you can still change your settings at any time (see below section ‘Removing and disabling cookies’).
We use the following types of cookies on http://www.pysertesting.com:
1. Session cookies
Session cookies enable us to keep track of your movement through the website and allow you to use the site quickly and easily without having to re-enter information. For example, they allow our site to remember what you have added to your shopping basket, enabling you to make your order without re-entering all your choices again at the checkout. Your contact details may be used to send a basket recovery email if you abandon your basket before completing the purchase. Without session cookies, a new page would not recognise your past activities on all prior pages and your shopping basket at checkout would always remain empty.
2. Persistent cookies
Persistent cookies help us remember your settings for each time you visit. They enable us to authenticate who you are once you register and to remember your preferences the next time you visit the site. This gives you faster and more convenient access each time you visit our site.

4. Removing and disabling cookies
You can control the cookies on your computer or device and have the option of turning them on or off.

While you will still be able to browse around the site, the functions that allow you to add items to your basket, set up a new account or access an existing account will not be available.
Most browsers automatically accept cookies; if you don’t want us to place cookies on your computer at all, you can set your browser to disable or reject them.
