If you do not agree to this Website's use of cookies you will need to disable cookies in your web browser settings – in doing so you may experience some loss of functionality while browsing the Website, particularly related to the online shopping basket.

Any personal information you provide while visiting this Website is confidential, and only used for the purposes described below. We guarantee never to sell Personal Information or share that information with third parties unrelated to Pearson Education Limited (or any associated companies which may be located outside the European Union) without your express permission, except to any third party suppliers we engage to develop or host the site or pursuant to any properly executed court order from a competent jurisdiction or if otherwise required to do so by law.
