For the purposes of the Act, the data controller of any personal data we collect or receive from you is The Valley School.
Collection of Personal Data
We will collect and store personal data about you as follows:
If you complete any forms on our website or are required to register to access any part of our website, any details you provide may be stored for use on future visits. The details you give us may be combined with information about your use of our website and information from any other of our records; if you contact us, we may keep a copy of that correspondence; and details of your visits to our website and the pages that you access.
Storage and Disclosure of Personal Data
We take reasonable care to prevent any unauthorised access to your personal data. Your personal data will be stored on our secure servers.
We sometimes use other companies to provide some of our services or to provide services to us. To enable them to do this, we may need to let them process your personal information. Our staff and those working for our agents or contractors have a responsibility to keep your information confidential and are only allowed to use it to offer products and services on our behalf.
Some of our suppliers may be based outside the European Economic Area (EEA). Countries in the EEA are required to have a similar standard of protection of personal data. This is not always the case outside that area. Where we transfer personal data outside the EEA, before doing so we will take steps to ensure that there is adequate protection, as required by the Data Protection Act 1998.
By continuing to use our website or services, or submitting personal data to us, you agree to this transfer, storing and processing.
In addition, we may disclose your personal data to third parties where we have a reasonable need to do so in order to comply with, or enforce, any legal obligation.
Use of Personal Data
We use your personal data to provide you with services, products or information you request, or which we believe may be of interest to you (where you have consented to be contacted for such purposes); present our website in the optimum way for you and your device, notify you of any changes to our website.
Right of access to your Personal Data
If you want to know what personal data we hold on you, please contact us.
If you believe that the information is inaccurate, please provide the relevant details and we will make the necessary amendments and confirm to you that these have been made.
Transmission of Personal Data
Our general email enquiry forms are not sent via an encrypted channel and for this reason we ask that you do not include confidential information when using them (such as bank account details).
We respect the privacy of personal email accounts and we store your email addresses just as securely as other personal data. We will not send you unwanted email messages or junk mail, and your details will not be passed to any third party for marketing purposes without your consent.
However, we may use email in response to enquiries you make about our services.
Third party links
Our website may contain links to third party websites. If you follow a link to any of these websites, please note that these websites and any services that may be accessible through them have their own privacy policies and that we do not accept any responsibility or liability for these policies or for any personal data that may be collected through these websites or services, such as contact and location data. Please check these policies before you submit any personal data to these websites or use these services.
As a result of improvements we make to our services, amendments to laws or regulation or developments in the technology or processes we use, we may change the information we hold about you and/or the way in which or the purposes for which we process such information. Where we require your consent to such change we will notify you of the change. However, unless you inform us otherwise, we will deem your continued use of our website and services to which the change relates to constitute your consent to the relevant change.
Please help us
We want our website and service to exceed your expectations on all occasions. To do so we need the information we hold about you to be accurate and up to date. Please help us by informing us promptly of any changes to your personal circumstances.
