This policy covers the Leicester Montessori School ’s use of personal information that the School collects when you use Montessorigroup.com.
From time to time, you may be invited to submit personal information about yourself (e.g. name and email address) in order to receive or use services on our website. Such services include newsletters, prospectus requests, competitions, message boards and membership of a School Report Distribution System (SRDS).
Information supplied by cookies can help us to provide you with a better online user experience and assist us to analyse the profile of our visitors. For example: if on a previous visit you went to our news pages, we might find this out from your cookie and highlight news information on your second and subsequent visits.p://www.netratings.com/privacy.jsp?section=leg_scs.
A cookie is a small amount of data, which often includes an anonymous unique identifier that is sent to your browser from a website's computer and stored on your computer's hard drive. Each website can send its own cookie to your browser if your browser's preferences allow it, but (to protect your privacy) your browser only permits a web site to access the cookies it has already sent to you, not the cookies sent to you by other sites.
Cookies record information about your online preferences. Users have the opportunity to set their computers to accept all cookies, to notify them when a cookie is issued, or not to receive cookies at any time. The last of these, of course, means that certain personalised services cannot then be provided to that user user and accordingly you may not be able to take full advantage of all of the montessorigroup.com features. Each browser is different, so check the "Help" menu of your browser to learn how to change your cookie preferences.
If you have set your computer to reject cookies you can still browse montessorigroup.com anonymously until such time as you wish to register for montessorigroup.com services.
Use and Storage of your Personal Information
When you supply any personal information to montessorigroup.com (e.g. for competitions, montessorigroup.com community services or SRDS membership) we have legal obligations towards you in the way we use those data. We must collect the information fairly, that is, we must explain how we will use it (see the notices on particular webpages that let you know why we are requesting the information) and tell you if we want to pass the information on to anyone else.
In general, any information you provide to the School will only be used within the School and by its agents. Your information will be disclosed where we are obliged or permitted by law. Also, if you post or send offensive, inappropriate or objectionable content anywhere on or to montessorigroup.com or otherwise engage in any disruptive behaviour on montessorigroup.com, the School can use whatever information that is available to it about you to stop such behaviour. This may involve informing relevant third parties such as your employer, school e-mail/Internet provider and law enforcement agencies about the content and your behaviour.
We will hold your personal information on our systems for as long as you use the service you have requested, and remove it in the event that the purpose has been met, or, in the case of montessorigroup.com membership you no longer wish to continue your registration as a montessorigroup.com member. For safety reasons, however, the School may store messaging transcript data (including message content, member names, times and dates) arising from the use of MontessoriGroup Community services such as SRDS for a period of six months. Where personal information is held for people who are not yet registered but have taken part in other montessorigroup.com services (e.g. prospectus requests), that information will be held as long as is necessary to ensure that the service is run smoothly. We will ensure that all personal information supplied is held securely, in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998.
If you are notified on a Leicester Montessori School site that your information may be used to allow the School to contact you for "service administration purposes", this means that the School may contact you for a number of purposes related to the service you have signed up for. For example, we may wish to provide you with password reminders or notify you that the particular service has been suspended for maintenance. We will not contact you for promotional purposes, such as notifying you of improvements to the service or new services on montessorigroup.com unless you specifically agree to be contacted for such purposes at the time you submit your information on the site, or at a later time if you sign up specifically to receive such promotional information.
Access to your personal Information
You have the right to request a copy of the personal information the School holds about you and to have any inaccuracies corrected. (We charge £5 for information requests.) Please address requests to the Data Protection Officer, 162 London Road, Leicester, LE2 1ND (Email: email@example.com).
Users 16 and under
If you are aged 16 or under, please get your parent/guardian's permission beforehand whenever you provide personal information to the School's website. Users without this consent are not allowed to provide us with personal information.
