Use of Cookies

By continuing to use this website you agree to the use of some Cookies, more detail can be found below:

  • What are cookies?

'Cookies' are small text files that are stored by the browser on your computer or mobile phone. Some cookies provide meaningful reports about a website's visitors.

Cookies are used by almost all websites, for a variety of purposes:
- Analysis of visitor behaviour (known as 'analytics')
- To personalise pages and remember visitor preferences.
- To manage shopping carts in online stores

  • How does www.sevenoaksschool.org use cookies?

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses cookies to help us analyse how visitors use the site in the aggregate. It does not collect personally identifiable information, and does not track your movements between different websites. Google Analytics allows us to see which areas of the site are most popular, so that we can tailor our content and messages appropriately.

As Sevenoaks School does not use cookies to store or collect personal information, our use of cookies therefore does not impact on your privacy. However, the Privacy and Electronic Communications (EC Directive) Regulations 2003 require website users to consent to the storage of access to cookies (unless they are strictly necessary to enable us to provide you with any service you have requested). By using the Sevenoaks School website and online services you agree that we may place the cookies mentioned above on your PC. 

  • How do I turn cookies off?

If you wish to change your cookie setting, all modern browsers will allow you to do this – the cookie settings will usually be found in the 'options' or 'preferences' menu of your browser.
Cookie settings in Internet Explorer
Cookie settings in Firefox

Active Information Collection

Like many web sites, this site actively collects information from its visitors both by asking you specific questions and by permitting you to communicate directly with us via e-mail and feedback forms. Some of the information that you submit may be personally identifiable information (that is, information that can be uniquely identified with you, such as your full name, address, e-mail address, phone number, and so on).

Some areas of this site may require you to submit information in order for you to benefit from the specified features (e.g. password-protected areas) or participate in a particular activity (such as a questionnaire). You will be informed at each information collection point what information is required and what information is optional. Please be aware, however, that if you decide not to provide that information, you may not be able to use some of the features of this website.

 

Passive Information Collection

As you navigate through a website, certain information can be passively collected (that is, gathered without your actively providing the information) using various technologies and means, such as cookies and navigational data collection.

A 'Cookie' is a bit of information that a website sends to your web browser that helps the site remember information about you and your preferences.

This site does not use cookies except for authentication: that is, cookies are used only for those visitors who choose to log in to the password-protected areas. These cookies only retain login information and expire after a period of inactivity.

'Navigational data' ('log files', 'server logs', and 'clickstream' data) are used for system management, to improve the content of the site, market research purposes, and to communicate information to visitors. This site uses navigational data.

 

Use and Disclosure of Information

Except as otherwise stated, we may use your information to improve the content of our site, to customise the site to your preferences, to communicate information to you (if you have requested it), for our marketing and research purposes, and for the purposes specified in these Terms of Use.

If you provide personally identifiable information to this site, we may combine such information with other actively collected information unless we specify otherwise at the point of collection. We will take reasonable measures to prevent personally identifiable information from being combined with passively collected information, unless you consent otherwise.

We may disclose your personally identifiable information to other Sevenoaks School affiliates worldwide that agree to treat it in accordance with these Terms of Use. In addition, we may disclose your personally identifiable information to third parties, located in the UK and/or any other country, but only:

  • To contractors we use to support our business (e.g. fulfilment services, technical support), in which case we will require such third parties to agree to treat it in accordance with these Terms of Use.
  • In connection with the sale, assignment, or other transfer of the business of this site to which the information relates, in which case we will require any such buyer to agree to treat it in accordance with these Terms of Use.
  • Where required by applicable laws, court orders, or government regulations. In addition, we will make full use of information acquired through this site that is not in personally identifiable form.

 

Access and Correction

You can at any time correct your personal profile. To keep your personally identifiable information accurate, current, and complete, please contact us as specified below. We will take reasonable steps to update or correct personally identifiable information in our possession that you have previously submitted via this site.

 

Licensing of Website Content

All original content on this website is subject to copyright. If you wish to use or publish this material elsewhere you must seek permission from the webmaster using the website contact form.

 

Security

We take reasonable steps to protect your personally identifiable information as you transmit your information from your computer to our site and to protect such information from loss, misuse, and unauthorised access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction. You should keep in mind that no Internet transmission is ever 100% secure or error-free. In particular, email sent to or from this site may not be secure, and you should therefore take special care in deciding what information you send to us via email. Moreover, where you use passwords, ID numbers, or other special features on this site, it is your responsibility to safeguard them.
