Privacy Policy

Heath Mount School Data Protection Policies and Privacy Notices can be reviewed within the Policies section on our website.

Our website utilises online forms for you to contact us, register for events and request a prospectus.

We will only collect personal data when we have your explicit consent to do so.  All personal data is managed in accordance with our obligations as a Data Controller.

For control of our business, our website logs IP addresses, which is the automatic number assigned to your computer when you surf the web. The IP address allows us to anonymously track visitors’ usage on our website. Your IP address is not connected to any personally identifiable or online contact information, like a name and address, so you remain anonymous at all times.

When do we share your information?

We will not sell, distribute or lease your personal information to third parties unless we have your permission or are required by law to do so.

How can you access your personal data?

You have a right to request access to the personal day that we hold about you.  If you would like to request a copy of your personal data, please contact us at privacy@heathmount.org.

If you believe that any information we are holding on you is incorrect or incomplete, please let us know as soon as possible.  We will promptly correct any information found to be incorrect.

Security

We are committed to ensuring that your information is secure.  In order to prevent unauthorised access or disclosure, we have put in place suitable physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online.
