1. Introduction

This Cookie Notice is prepared by Study Smart AS (“Study Smart” or “we“) and contains information about our use of cookies which we use in our products and on our websites. For example, we use cookies to distinguish you from other users of our website, and to provide functionality and a better user experience to you. This Cookie Notice includes details about the types of cookies we use, the purpose of our use of cookies and your rights in connection with our use of cookies.

2. What are cookies?

A cookie is a small file of letters and numbers that we store on your browser or the hard drive of your computer. Cookies contain information that is transferred to your computer’s hard drive. Pixels, web beacons and other technologies are also used to monitor your use of our website. In this notice, we will refer to all of the aforementioned technologies as “cookies”.

Strictly necessary cookies

These cookies are necessary for the website to function and cannot be switched off in our systems. They are usually only set in response to actions made by you which amount to a request for services, such as setting your privacy preferences, logging in or filling in forms. You can set your browser to block or alert you about these cookies, but some parts of the site will not then work. These cookies do not store any personally identifiable information.

Performance cookies

These cookies allow us to count visits and traffic sources so we can measure and improve the performance of our site. They help us to know which pages are the most and least popular and see how visitors move around the site. All information these cookies collect is aggregated and therefore anonymous. If you do not allow these cookies we will not know when you have visited our site, and will not be able to monitor its performance.

Functional cookies

These cookies enable the website to provide enhanced functionality and personalisation. They may be set by us or by third party providers whose services we have added to our pages. If you do not allow these cookies then some or all of these services may not function properly.

4. How you can control your cookies

You have the right to decide whether to reject or accept cookies. Except for the essential cookies that are strictly required for our provision of services to you, cookies are only permitted if you are informed about and have consented to the use of cookies.

Browser controls:  You may set or amend your web browser controls to accept or refuse cookies. If you choose to reject cookies you may still use our websites. However, your access to some functionality and areas may be restricted or your user experience will be impaired. The means by which you can refuse cookies through your web-browser may vary from browser to browser and you should visit your browser’s help menu for more information.

Do Not Track: Some browsers – like Internet Explorer, Firefox and Safari – include the ability to transmit “Do Not Track” or “DNT” signals. Since uniform standards for DNT signals have not yet been adopted our web pages do not currently process or respond to DNT. Study Smart does take privacy and your right to make choices seriously and we continue to monitor developments around DNT browser technologies and the implementation of a standard.

5. Updates and contact

We may update this Cookie Notice from time to time in order to reflect, for example, changes to the cookies we use or for other operational, legal or regulatory reasons. We encourage you to revisit this Cookie Notice regularly to stay informed about our use of cookies and related technologies.
