This page explains how this site, which is managed by John Grant School, uses any information you give to us, and the ways in which we protect your privacy.

The Data Protection Act

What information do we collect?

If you are a user with general public and anonymous access the John Grant School website does not store or capture personal information, but merely logs the user’s IP address that is automatically recognised by the web server.

We do not use cookies for collecting user information and we will not collect any information about you except that required for system administration of our web server.

We collect information from visitors to the John Grant School website in two ways:

  • Requests for information or services via email and online forms
  • Feedback via an online form

Contacting us

You can ask for information or request services in 5 ways: by requests and questions sent by online forms, e-mail, phone, post or in person. You can make comments and give us your feedback in the same way.

If you send an e-mail or complete a form on the website asking for information or a service, or sending a comment that requires a response, it will be passed to the appropriate department who will respond to you. We do not pass on your details to any third party unless you give us permission or the Council or School is legally obliged to do so.

After we have replied to you, we will keep a record of your message for at least six years.

Site usage information – Log files

Log files allow us to record visitors’ use of the site. We put together log file information from all our visitors, which we use to make changes to the layout of the site and to the information in it, based on the way that visitors move around it. Log files do not contain any personal information or information about which other sites you have visited.

Feedback Forms

Information submitted via a feedback form may be logged in a database for statistical purposes. Information may also be immediately processed and emailed to a relevant member of staff to review and or action the feedback. Personally identifiable information will be treated with the strictest confidence and will not be passed on to any unauthorised parties without the express consent of the original sender.

Where feedback contains personally identifiable information and is being used for statistical purposes, it will be anonomised before being published.
