Thank you for visiting Edinburgh Steiner School website.
Keeping your information safe and secure
Please read the following information carefully.
For convenience, we have divided our data protection policies into three separate pages:
- Our Retention Policy – you can find out how long we may hold onto your personal information HERE.
Who We Are
We are Edinburgh Steiner School Trust. We are registered in Scotland as a registered charity. Our registered number is SC002109 and our registered address is 60 – 64 Spylaw Road, Edinburgh EH10 5BR.
Because we are a school located in Scotland the personal information that you give us or that we collect from you will be held under Scottish data protection legislation (butwe’ll just refer to this as “the legislation”). The legislation requires that we tell you that we are a data controller for your personal information or, in other words, we determine the purposes for which and the manner in which any of your personal information are, or are to be, processed by us.
How You Consent to Us Collecting Your Personal Information
If you do not click or select the “I Agree” button that appears in the pop-up at the centre of your screen then we will endeavour to notcollect your personal information – this is subject to the caveat below.
Caveat: Even if you do not click or select the “I Agree” button there is still some information that we may automatically collect about you – this normally isn’t personal information but rather technical information sent by your device and used to connect your computer, tablet, or mobile device to the Internet, including your browser type and version, the time when you visit our site, your time zone setting, certain browser plug-in types and versions, operating system and platform. This type of information is sent by you to our site automatically and it isn’t something that we can prevent. We only use this information to administer our site including troubleshooting, load testing, traffic throughput, data analysis, performance testing, and for anonymised research and statistics purposes that we only use internally.
We will only hold your personal information as detailed in our Retention Policy HERE.
When you’re browsing and using this site we often capture data about you. Sometimes we do it directly, sometimes indirectly. Please note that the information given by you will be processed in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation 2016 for the purposes of: processing your request and providing you with information about what we offer and for auditing usage of the site. If you contact us or book a school tour, we will use your personal data in accordance with the consents that you give us when you apply.
We will not disclose your information to other parties and can assure you that the information given will only be used for internal purposes.
Site tracking information
We are committed to improving the service and information we are able to provide our users. We are therefore continually seeking ways of improving and upgrading the website. With this in mind, we reserve the right to change the way this site operates and how we process information. However, we will continue to respect the privacy and preferences of all users.
How long will we hold onto your personal information?
You can find details on how long we may hold onto your personal information in our Retention Policy which can be found HERE.
