This School Privacy Policy applies to all School websites and provides an explanation as to what happens to any personal data that you provide to us, or that we collect from you.


Information collected by the School

For each visitor to the School website, our web server may log the visitor's activity. These log files include the details of the visitor's IP address, browser type, page last visited and other such information. Log files are used to analyse usage of the School website, and may be kept in an aggregated and anonymised form for historical records. We may use the analysis to improve the content of our website. The School does not share this information with any other organisation for commercial purposes.
Occasionally, the School may collect personal information, such as your e-mail address, name, home or work address or telephone number and information volunteered by the user, such as survey information, filling of website forms and site registrations. The School may also collect anonymous demographic information, which is not unique to you. Information collected at the Schools website may be shared within the School  as a whole including the Schools family of websites. Personal and demographic data may be stored and processed outside your country (if outside the United Kingdom) and by using the School's website, you consent to any such transfers being made outside your country.


Use of Information collected by the School

Any information supplied by you will be used by the School for the purpose related to your enquiry and to operate the School websites and deliver the services that you have requested.

Disclosing your information

The School does not sell or otherwise transfer personal data to any third parties unless you have consented to this.
The School will disclose your personal information, without notice, only if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to protect and defend the rights or property of the School and its group of websites and to protect the personal safety of users of the School, its websites, or the public.
