Website Legal Statement

Welcome!

Welcome to our website. We hope that you find the information that you are looking for and that you enjoy learning about our school.

To keep everyone safe, we ask that anyone visiting our website should stick to the rules and we have created this legal statement to help you to do this.

 

The Website

The site has been designed using WordPress with the Vantage theme from SiteOrigin. The build and design was completed by Aidan Creaner with the direction of the School Principal, Ann Creaner.

Comments and suggestions on content should be directed to the principal through the Contact Form.

Child Protection

In line with our Child Protection Policy, the School operates the following policy on its website regarding the use of photographs, to ensure the privacy and safety of pupils at the school:

  1. Where pupils are named, only their first names are given;
  2. Where a pupil is named, no photograph of that pupil is displayed;
  3. Where a photograph is used which shows a pupil, no name is displayed.

By observing these points, the school ensures that visitors to the website cannot link images of pupils to names of pupils.  The school follows a policy of seeking parents’ permission before using images which show pupils on the website.

No other private information about pupils is ever published on the website such as contact details.

Media

All information, photographs, images, sound-files etc., contained therein, should not be copied or modified in any way or form without the written authorisation of the Principal.

While every effort has been made to ensure consent with content and images etc., we are happy to comply with any legitimate requests to remove content, media etc. as appropriate. If requests are received for any image or piece of work to be removed from the site, it is the policy of the Webmaster to do so at the earliest convenience.  Contact should be made via the Contact Form.  If no reply is received within 3 working days, please ring the school.

 Legal

The website should only be used in accordance with the law.  The school will reveal personal information if required by a valid legal process.  The school reserves the right to reveal personal information if circumstances compel it do so for the protection of its reputation or legal rights, or for the protection of those entrusted to its care.
The school does not forward, sell, or make personal information known to any outside organisation, agency, or individual.

 

Links

Where our website has links to other resources that may be useful to our viewers; as such links are governed by different practices, we cannot be held responsible for the content or privacy policies that pertain to such sites that are linked to ours, and we recommend that you read the privacy statements of these linked sites.
Furthermore, any views/opinions expressed, or products purchased via our Website-links should not be regarded as endorsed by the school.  The school cannot be held responsible for the views/opinions of others, or for any dissatisfaction in regard to goods and services provided by a third party. Any disputes should be handled directly with the third party involved.

Viruses

The Webmaster together with hosting partner, Register365, do their utmost to maintain a virus-free system; however, we strongly recommend, that users of our Website run an anti-virus program prior to downloading materials from our site.  The school and its agents, cannot be held responsible for any virus which may attack, damage, or cause loss to a user while downloading from our website.

We may use this information in the administration of this website, to improve the website’s usability, and for marketing purposes.

We use cookies on this website. A cookie is a text file sent by a web server to a web browser, and stored by the browser. The text file is then sent back to the server each time the browser requests a page from the server. This enables the web server to identify and track the web browser.

We may send a cookie which may be stored by your browser on your computer’s hard drive. We may use the information we obtain from the cookie in the administration of this website, to improve the website’s usability and for marketing purposes. We may also use that information to recognise your computer when you visit our website, and to personalise our website for you.

Most browsers allow you to refuse cookies. (For example, in Internet Explorer you can refuse all cookies by clicking “Tools”, “Internet Options”, “Privacy”, and selecting “Block all cookies” using the sliding selector.) This will, however, have a negative impact upon the usability of many websites.

We will not without your express consent provide your personal information to any third parties for the purpose of direct marketing.

In addition to the disclosures reasonably necessary for the purposes identified elsewhere in this privacy policy, we may disclose information about you:

  1. To the extent that we are required to do so by law;
  2. In connection with any legal proceedings or prospective legal proceedings;
  3. In order to establish, exercise or defend our legal rights (including providing information to others for the purposes of fraud prevention and reducing credit risk);
  4. Except as provided in this privacy policy, we will not provide your information to third parties.

(5) Security Of Your Personal Data

We will take reasonable precautions to prevent the loss, misuse or alteration of your personal information. Of course, data transmission over the internet is inherently insecure, and we cannot guarantee the security of data sent over the internet.
