PRIVACY POLICY

Schola Foris is aware of and understands the issues regarding privacy on the Internet and as a result we will explain how we manage the information we receive through our website.

The technology we use collects information such as domain name, search engines used and keywords searched on and this information is collated to identify the number of visits to our website and other such statistics for the purposes of improving our website and our marketing.  We analyse traffic and demographics using Google Analytics. See Cookies Policy below.

This information will not be used for any other purposes.

However, sometimes additional information is offered to allow us to respond to your requests for further contact. Schola Foris will not provide this information to any third party. Further, you will always be given the opportunity to say that you do not wish to receive further information.

Any information we collect via either of the methods stated above will be held for as long as necessary to conduct business relationships. It will be stored securely and you will have the right to access any information held by us in respect of you, as demanded by Data Protection legislation.

Personal information provided through any online booking form is dealt with in the same way as any hard copy personal information.

  • Permission for activities –  Parental permission data collected  via the website is printed and the contact email  containing the information is deleted. The hard copy is used for the period covered by the given permission form and then shredded after the event. No children’s details are stored or retained on any electronic or hard copy system held by Schola Foris. This is why we ask for a new permission slip for every activity attended. Where adults provide a contact email address Schola Foris retains the right to use this for marketing purposes.

By using this site, you signify your assent to Schola Foris’s Privacy Policy. If you do not agree to this policy, please do not use this site. We reserve the right, at our discretion, to change modify, add, or remove portions of this policy at any time. Please check this page periodically for changes. Your continued use of this site following the posting of changes to these terms will mean you accept those changes.

HEALTH AND SAFETY STATEMENT

Schola Foris is committed to ensuring the health, safety and welfare of its entire staff, its clients and those who come into contact with its work. Underlying this is a statutory duty of care and we have a Health and Safety Policy which will make sure our legal responsibilities are met at all times.

Notwithstanding the above, we acknowledge that much of what we do as an organisation is not risk free and we believe that eradication of all risk undervalues the ethos on which we base our work. We will therefore work to ensure that behavioural safety underpins all our activities, based on thorough, suitable and sufficient risk assessment accompanied by appropriate information, instruction and training for staff and clients. In this way we will enable them to participate in the organisation’s activities in a safe way.

The commitment to Health and Safety is considered to be a management responsibility equal to that of any other and therefore all activities will take account of health and safety and the welfare of staff and participants.

All individuals working for and with the organisation need to co-operate with us to enable our statutory duties to be met and the successful implementation of our policy requires commitment from everyone.

We have made arrangements for the effective planning, organisation and management of health and safety which, where appropriate, includes appointing competent people to help us in meeting our legal responsibilities.

The policy will be kept under review to make sure our objectives are achieved and where necessary, we will revise it in the light of legislative or organisational changes.

The Founder is responsible for the Health and Safety Policy and will make sure that sufficient resources are provided to achieve the organisation’s objectives.
