Use of Personal Information
We do not collect any personal information unless you voluntarily provide it by sending us email, participating in a survey or completing an online form. Personal information submitted will not be transferred to any non-affiliated third parties unless otherwise stated at the time of collection. When a user submits personally identifiable information it is used only for the purpose stated at the time of collection.
Where consent for the use and disclosure of personal information is required, the school will seek consent from the appropriate person. In the case of a student’s personal information, the school will seek the consent from the student and/ or parent depending on the circumstances and the student’s mental ability and maturity to understand the consequences of the proposed use and disclosure.
It is best to have a signed release form or likeness consent form when publishing any photo, schoolwork, or identifying information, particularly about students - see “Legal Guidelines for Using Photos” for more details. A search on "media consent form for schools" or similar phrases on a search engine will turn up many examples of consent forms. Again, consult an attorney for questions about specific situations in your area, and to have your release form reviewed to make sure it is adequate for your intended purposes.
