Future School

Privacy policy

As of 1 October 2007, Future School updated its privacy policy to give our customers a better understanding of our privacy policy and practice. If you have any questions, please contact privacy@futureschool.com

Future School and our affiliated companies worldwide are committed to respecting your online privacy and recognise your need for appropriate protection and management of any personally identifiable information (personal information) you share with us.

Future School has established this online privacy policy so that you can understand the care with which we intend to treat your personal information.

Personal information means any information that may be used to identify an individual, including, but not limited to, a first and family name, a home or other physical address, an e-mail address or other contact information, whether at work or at home. In general, you can visit Future School's web-pages without telling us who you are or revealing any personal information about yourself.

If you choose to provide us with your personal information on the web, we may transfer that information, within Future School or to Future School's third-party service providers, across borders and from your country or jurisdiction to other countries or jurisdictions around the world.

Future School strives to comply with all applicable laws around the globe that are designed to protect your privacy. Although legal requirements may vary from country to country, Future School intends to adhere to the principles set forth in this online privacy policy even if, in connection with the above, we transfer your personal information from your country to countries that may not require an 'adequate' level of protection for your personal information. In other words, our goal is to provide protection for your personal information no matter where that personal information is collected, transferred or retained.

Cookies and other tracking technologies

Some of our web-pages utilise 'cookies' and other tracking technologies. A cookie is a small text file that may be used, for example, to collect information about website activity. Some cookies and other technologies may serve to recall personal information previously indicated by a web user. Most browsers allow you to control cookies, including whether or not to accept them and how to remove them.

You may set most browsers to notify you if you receive a cookie or you may choose to block cookies with your browser. Please note if you choose to erase or block your cookies, you will be required to re-enter your original user ID and password to gain access to certain parts of the website.

Tracking technologies may record information such as internet domain and host names, internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser software and operating system types, click-stream patterns, and dates and times that our site is accessed. Our use of cookies and other tracking technologies allows us to improve our website and your web experience. We may also analyse information that does not contain personal information for trends and statistics.

To protect your privacy, we have adopted the following principles:

Notice

Where Future School collects personal information on the web, we intend to post a purpose statement that explains why personal information will be collected and whether we plan to share such personal information outside of Future School or those working on Future School's behalf. Future School does not intend to transfer personal information without your consent to third-parties who are not bound to act on Future School's behalf unless such transfer is legally required.

Choice

You may choose whether or not to provide personal information to Future School. The notice we intend to provide where Future School collects personal information on the web should help you to make this choice. If you choose not to provide the personal information we request, you can still visit most of Future School's websites, but you may be unable to access certain options, offers and services that involve our interaction with you.

If you choose to have a relationship with Future School, such as a contractual or other business relationship or partnership, we will naturally continue to contact you in connection with that business relationship.

Security

Wherever your personal information may be held within Future School or on its behalf, we intend to take reasonable and appropriate steps to protect the personal information that you share with us from authorised access or disclosure.

Access/accuracy

To the extent that you do provide us with personal information, Future School wishes to maintain accurate personal information. Where we collect personal information from you on the web, our goal is to provide a means of contacting Future School should you need to update or correct that information. If for any reason those means are unavailable or inaccessible, you may send updates and corrections about your personal information to privacy@futureschool.com and we will make reasonable efforts to incorporate the changes in your personal information that we hold as soon as practicable.

Third-party services

Third-parties provide certain services available on Future School's website on Future School's behalf. Future School may provide information, including personal information that Future School collects on the web to third-party service providers to help us deliver programs, products, information and services. Service providers are also an important means by which Future School maintains its website and mailing lists. Future School will take reasonable steps to ensure that these third-party service providers are obligated to protect personal information on Future School's behalf.

Future School does not intend to transfer personal information without your consent to third-parties who are not bound to act on Future School's behalf unless such transfer is legally required. Similarly, it is against Future School's policy to sell personal information collected online without consent.

Children's privacy

Future School's website is structured to attract children. Accordingly, we do collect personal information from children under 13 years of age and we are committed to ensure that the individual privacy of each child is respected and not passed on to any third-party for any reason whatsoever.

Commitment

We are committed to privacy and through our membership in the Online Privacy Alliance are actively involved in and support current industry initiatives to preserve individual privacy rights on the internet. Protecting your privacy online is an evolving area, and Future School's websites are constantly evolving to meet these demands.

If you have any comments or questions regarding our online privacy policy, please contact us at privacy@futureschool.com. While we cannot guarantee privacy perfection, we will address any issue to the best of our abilities at our earliest opportunity.

Your consent

By using this website, you consent to the terms of our online privacy policy and to Future School's processing of personal information for the purposes given above as well as those explained where Future School collects personal information on the web. Should the online privacy policy change, we intend to take every reasonable step to ensure that these changes are brought to your attention by posting all changes prominently on our website for a reasonable period of time.
