2. What are cookies?
Cookies are small data files that are placed on your computer or mobile device when you visit a website, mobile app or use an online platform. Cookies are widely used by online service providers to facilitate and help to make the interaction between users and websites, mobile apps and online platforms faster and easier, as well as to provide reporting information.
Cookies set by the website and/or mobile app and/or platform owner (in this case, BTB Education) are called "first party cookies". Cookies set by parties other than the website and/or mobile app and/or platform owner are called "third party cookies". Third party cookies enable third party features or functionality to be provided on or through the website and/or mobile app and/or platform (e.g. like advertising, interactive content and analytics). The parties that set these third party cookies can recognise your computer or device both when it visits the website and/or mobile app and/or platform in question and also when it visits certain other websites and/or mobile apps and/or platforms.
We use two cookies:
1. To provide a user session. When you first access the app, we create a cookie called “verto-token-prod”. This cookie is used to tie all of your answers together in the database, and to ensure you don’t lose your progress when you refresh the page. It does not let us identify you. If you choose to sign-in to BTB Education this cookie is associated with your identity in Auth0. We will seek your explicit permission before this happens.
2. To improve our services. The second cookie is called “verto-analytics-prod”. We use this cookie to measure your usage of the App and track referral data. This cookie is used by our analytics service that helps us to develop and improve our services and optimise the content we display to users.
