The 1stChoice Tutors website uses “cookies” to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.
One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize 1stChoice Tutors pages, or register with 1stChoice Tutors site or services, a cookie helps 1stChoice Tutors to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal data, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same 1stChoice Tutors website, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the 1stChoice Tutors features that you customized.
You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the 1stChoice Tutors services or websites you visit.
Security of Your Personal Data
1stChoice Tutors secures your personal data from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. 1stChoice Tutors secures the personally identifiable data you provide on computer servers in a controlled, secure environment, protected from unauthorized access, use or disclosure.

Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although 1stChoice Tutors will do its best to protect your personal data, 1stChoice Tutors cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to its site; any transmission is at your own risk.
