Privacy Policy - Forums and School Website

We value the importance of the privacy of all users of our website in accordance with the Data Protection Act 2019.  

Accordingly:

Everyone responsible for using personal data has to follow strict rules called ‘data protection principles’. They must make sure the information is:

  • used fairly, lawfully and transparently

  • used for specified, explicit purposes

  • used in a way that is adequate, relevant and limited to only what is necessary

  • accurate and, where necessary, kept up to date

  • kept for no longer than is necessary

  • handled in a way that ensures appropriate security, including protection against unlawful or unauthorised processing, access, loss, destruction or damage

As part of our induction process, all families will have received an enrolment form which was completed and handed to our school office. This form outlines our 'use of internet resources' by pupils and acts as the standard for acceptable behaviour on our forums by pupils. We strongly advise that no personal information is posted on our forums, and only usernames will be displayed in posts. All pupils wishing to use our forums must only use their school email address to join - this information will not be accessible to others. Pupils must not add pictures of themselves, particularly on their profiles. All password created are personal to each individual user and should not be shared with any other parties.

Our website is hosted on the Wix.com platform. Your data may be stored through Wix.com’s data storage, databases and the general Wix.com applications. They store your data on secure servers behind a firewall. More information regarding Wix.com's privacy policy can be accessed HERE.

If you don’t want us to process your data anymore, please contact us and we will remove your profile from our members area (joined when you follow us on our forums).
