This privacy policy has been compiled to better serve those who are concerned with how their 'Personally identifiable information' (PII) is being used online. PII, as used in US privacy law and information security, is information that can be used on its own or with other information to identify, contact, or locate a single person, or to identify an individual in context. Please read our privacy policy carefully to get a clear understanding of how we collect, use, protect or otherwise handle your Personally Identifiable Information in accordance with our website.

What personal information do we collect from the people that visit our 1FS Schools website or companion mobile app?

We collect information from you when you register on our site or when you member group engages with 1FS Schools on your behalf. We will also collect anonymous usage statistics such as pages or products visited, sample or information requests, or other similar site activity. Your personal information will never be associated with these statistics.

How do we use your information?

We may use the information we collect from you when you register in the following ways:

  • To personalize your user experience by filtering content that may be relevant to your member group, and to allow us to save personalized content you have requested to enter such as product rankings, product comments, or saved documents.
  • To improve our website in order to better serve you.

How do we protect visitor information?

No sensitive information is stored about you, and any transactional statistics are not stored with your name or personal ID data, but rather using an anonymous system ID number that prevents the content from being associated with you in the event any data is ever breached. 

Do we use 'cookies'?

Yes. Cookies are small files that our 1FS Schools website transfers to your computer's hard drive through your Web browser (if you allow) that enables the 1FS Schools website to recognize your browser and capture and remember certain information.

Each browser is a little different, so look at your browser's Help menu to learn the correct way to modify your cookies.

If you disable cookies, some features may be disabled and your website experience could be mildly less efficient, but it shouldn't affect your experience much.

Third-party disclosure

We will not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer any personal information to outside parties unless we provide you with advance notice. This does not include website hosting partners and other parties who assist us in operating our website, conducting our business, or serving our users, so long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential.

COPPA (Children Online Privacy Protection Act)

When it comes to the collection of personal information from children under 13, the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) puts parents in control. The Federal Trade Commission, the nation's consumer protection agency, enforces the COPPA Rule, which spells out what operators of websites and online services must do to protect children's privacy and safety online. We do not specifically market to children under 13.

Fair Information Practices

The Fair Information Practices Principles form the backbone of privacy law in the United States and the concepts they include have played a significant role in the development of data protection laws around the globe. Understanding the Fair Information Practice Principles and how they should be implemented is critical to comply with the various privacy laws that protect personal information.

In order to be in line with Fair Information Practices we will take the following responsive action, should a data breach occur we will notify the users via email within 7 business days.


The CAN-SPAM Act is a law that sets the rules for commercial email, establishes requirements for commercial messages, gives recipients the right to have emails stopped from being sent to them, and spells out tough penalties for violations.
