USE OF COOKIES

The Tutor Doctor website uses “cookies” to help you personalise your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a webpage server. Cookies cannot be used to run programmes 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 personalise Tutor Doctor pages, or register with Tutor Doctor site or services, a cookie helps Tutor Doctor to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same Tutor Doctor website, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the Tutor Doctor features that you customised.

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 Tutor Doctor services or websites you visit.

SECURITY OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION

Tutor Doctor secures your personal information from unauthorised access, use or disclosure. Tutor Doctor secures the personally identifiable information you provide on computer servers in a controlled, secure environment, protected from unauthorised access, use or disclosure. When personal information (such as a credit card number) is transmitted to other websites, it is protected through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol.

Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although Tutor Doctor will do its best to protect your personal data, Tutor Doctor cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to its site; any transmission is at your own risk. Once Tutor Doctor has received your information, it will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.

YOUR RIGHTS

You have the right to ask Tutor Doctor not to process your personal data for marketing purposes. Tutor Doctor will usually inform you (before collecting your data) if it intends to use your data for such purposes or if it intends to disclose your information to any third party for such purposes. You can exercise your right to prevent such processing by checking certain boxes on the forms we use to collect your data. You can also exercise the right at any time by contacting us in writing.

The Tutor Doctor site may, from time to time, contain links to and from the websites of its partner networks, advertisers and affiliates. If you follow a link to any of these websites, please note that these websites have their own privacy policies and that Tutor Doctor does not accept any responsibility or liability for these policies. Please check these policies before you submit any personal data to these websites
