Privacy

Use of Personal Information
We do not collect any personal information unless you voluntarily provide it by sending us e-mail, participating in a survey, or completing an on-line form. Personal information submitted will not be transferred to any non-affiliated third parties unless otherwise stated at the time of collection.

Multimedia and Image Consent
A multimedia release is completed by all families at the time of enrollment or re-enrollment. This details use of images and recordings online, images and quotes in print publications, and information released to media.

In the course of School life, we will take photographs or videos (“images”) that feature our students. We may use these images for promotional purposes (without personal data, or with first name and last initial only), which may include using them in printed publications such as admissions brochures, our website, social media such as Twitter, Facebook or Instagram, in advertisements, or displayed around campus.

We may also include images of students (along with other personal data, such as name and contact details) in School directories or School-only photo sharing platforms (which are only available to employees, other students, and other Parents/Guardians at the School) and in School yearbooks.

  1. Parental/Guardian consent to the use of images will be deemed as consent on behalf of Student, irrespective of Student’s age
  2. Consent can be withdrawn by either Parent/Guardian or Student at any time in writing. However, if a Parent/Guardian or Student withdraws consent to allow the School to use Student’s image for the purposes outlined above, the School will be unable to change or retract printed material that has already been printed and/or disseminated.
  3. Once images are uploaded to the School social media pages, they will be subject to the terms and conditions of the social media site. Although the School will remove Student’s image from a social media page if requested to do so by Student or their Parent/Guardian, neither the Parent/Guardian nor the School will have control over how those images are further used, amended or reproduced, either by the social media site or the public.
  4. The School will remove an image of Student on the website if the Parent/Guardian or Student request to do so. However, please note that websites are public and can be viewed throughout the world.
  5. If parental/guardian consent to the taking and use of images is not granted, the School will take reasonable steps to avoid taking or using images of Students. However, there may be some situations (such as group photographs or photographs/videos captured at School events) where it is not possible to exclude the student from the image.
  6. If parental/guardian consent is granted to allow the School to use images and other personal data of Student in directories, the School will assume that consent is granted to allow the School to include images and personal data in its alumni directories as well.
