Please read through the following carefully as it is intended to provide a general overview about the policy of this website.
Use of Personal Information
The Bridge Educational Society does not collect any personal information unless you voluntarily provide it by sending us email, participating in a survey, or completing an on-line form. Personal information submitted will not be transferred to any non-affiliated third parties without your consent unless otherwise stated at the time of collection, except we may disclose personal information in response to a subpoena, court or legal process, to the extent permitted and required by law. When a user submits personally identifiable information it is used only for the purpose stated at the time of collection. We may use your email address to send to you information concerning the school and this website unless you advise us not to do so. All personal information collected by The Bridge Educational Society from prospective families, current families, alumni, and community members is stored in a confidential database. Access to personal information is restricted to authorized staff of the Society.
Where consent for the use and disclosure of personal information is required, we will seek consent from the appropriate person. In the case of a student’s personal information, we will seek the consent from the student and/ or parent depending on the circumstances and the student’s mental ability and maturity to understand the consequences of the proposed use and disclosure.
