Use and disclosure of Personal Information
We do not collect any personal information unless you voluntarily provide it by sending us e-mail, participating in a survey, or completing an on-line form. Personal information submitted will only be used and may only be disclosed to third parties (for processing and administrative purposes) for the purposes stated at the time of collection.
When you voluntarily submit personal information you consent to its use for the purposes stated at such time. Where consent for the use and disclosure of personal information for purposes other than those stated at the time of collection, the College will seek consent from the appropriate person. In the case of a student’s personal information, the school 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.
If you consented to the publication of photos, schoolwork or personally identifiable information, any document you may submit through e-mail, or on-line form or application will be subject to such consent.
Retention and access
The College will retain personal information as long as it is reasonably needed for the purposes stated at the time of collection or as required by law.
Personal information is protected by physical security measures, electronic and appropriate processes. Your personal information will not be sold to third parties; it will also not be added to the electronic mailing lists.
We will process written request for information in accordance with the applicable act respecting the protection of personal information.
