The GCSCORED website use “cookies” to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a web 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 convenient 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 the GCSCORED web pages, or register with the GCSCORED website, a cookie helps the GCSCORED website to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as home addresses, billing addresses, and so on. When you return to the same GCSCORED website, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use 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 settings 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 GCSCORED websites you visit.

GCSCORED secures the personally identifiable information you provide on computer servers in a controlled, secure environment, protected from unauthorized access, use or disclosure.
