Cookies store information regarding your preferences and other information specific to you, and may be viewed by CORE and any other persons who have access to your computer.

How we protect your information

CORE takes appropriate precautions to protect our users' information. Your account information is located on a secured server behind a firewall. However data transmission over the internet cannot be guaranteed as 100% secure and therefore you use the website at your own risk. Online payments, however, are conducted over a secure socket (SSL) and are secure.

If you have any questions about the security of CORE’s websites, please contact us at help@core-ed.org

Password security

In some instances you may be required to enter a username and password to access information about your account, and to change your personal details. The user name (also called a login ID) and password are required in order to protect your privacy and security. It is your responsibility to ensure that you do not allow your user name or password to be disclosed to any other person

If you are required to have a password for use of any part of CORE’s websites, we recommend you select a password that does not relate to any readily accessible data such as your name, birth date, address, etc. You are entirely responsible for maintaining the security of your login ID and password, and for all activity that occurs on or through your account. You should change your password immediately if you believe that your login ID and password have been used without authorisation. CORE shall not have any liability for your failure to comply with these obligations. CORE’s IT Helpdesk has the ability to reset a user password. Email help@core-ed.org to contact the Helpdesk.

Transfer of information in case of sale

Should our business (or any part of it) be sold or transferred to new owners at any time, the information we hold may form part of the assets transferred although it will still only be used in accordance with this policy.
