Branksome Hall is committed to protecting the privacy of all our constituents. Maintaining the trust of our constituents is important to Branksome, and we recognize that, to maintain this trust, we must be responsible, transparent and accountable in how we treat the personal information that is shared with us. Branksome Hall gathers and stores personal information — such as your name, address, telephone number and e-mail address — as provided by you, to communicate with you. Our privacy practices are designed to protect this information.
Personal information — gathered by Branksome Hall through applications, registration and updates provided by constituents — on students, parents of students and alumnae, alumnae, staff and faculty, former staff and faculty employees, and friends, is used to do the following:
- send our constituents publications, collateral materials, updates and information
- solicit financial support for the school
- inform our constituents of events, activities and volunteer opportunities in which they can participate
- publish our annual student directory (distributed only to current families in the school)
- communicate with constituents on an individual basis.
The school maintains personal information records on all constituents, including names, addresses, phone numbers, e-mail addresses and other personal information that is publicly available and provided through interactions with you or other Branksome Hall constituents. It is your right to view your personal information on file at the school. We require notice to ensure that the appropriate individual is available to review your file with you, and is available to answer any questions or address any concerns you may have.
Branksome Hall does not track the e-mail addresses of visitors to our site; however, we do record the country of origin for each visitor and the web pages they viewed for statistical and research purposes only. At no time is the identity of the user known or recorded.
Services from select companies are outsourced to manage certain online activities for the school, e.g., online giving, the alumnae e-mail directory, online special event registration, and ordering of textbooks online. These companies offer secure sites.
