Blue Oak School is committed to respecting and protecting the privacy of every visitor to its website. Herein, we declare how we collect and use of the data gathered or added by you to our website. This Privacy Policy describes the information that the Blue Oak School collects through its website, what we do with the information the site gathers, and to whom (if any) the information may be shared.

The Blue Oak School website, as is standard practice with all websites, collects data that your web browser reveals, such as web browser name and version, operating system, generic connection information, Internet IP address, cookies etc. These items are recorded in our web server’s log files, which again, is common practice with all websites. We use the information contained within these logs to track the number of visitors to the website, analyze the performance of the website, and to track user preferences to ensure that we are publishing content that people need and want. Please note that our website hosting company, 1&1 Internet Inc. also has access to this data that your web browser passes on.

The parents or legal guardians of any student currently enrolled at Blue Oak are required to register to this website. This registration, once approved and activated by Blue Oak staff, will permit access to the non-public information relevant to parents. This approval step helps to ensure only parents faculty and staff have access to the website. Parent’s account and therefore access to these areas of the site will expire upon the last day of attendance of their child. This account expiration policy helps to ensure the security of the site and limits access to only active parents and legal guardians.

Any such data and any additional information that we gather via online forms, like registration forms (i.e. email and/or mailing address), is only used internally. We will certainly use such information to communicate with you and keep you informed of important student and school-related information, but we will not share, sell, rent or otherwise give any personal information you provide us to any third parties, with exception to service providers who assist the Blue Oak School in communicating with you. We may be required by applicable law, subpoena, court order or by any other legal process to disclose the personal information you provide us or that we gather from your use of our website, and it is our policy to comply with any such requirements.

All information you provide us is treated as highly sensitive information and the communication of that data from you to our site is encrypted through a secure connection (SSL/TLS). Independent external and internal audits are conducted on a regular basis to review our privacy and security settings, how we collect and store your information on our website. Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not guaranteed as secure. Although we do our best to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of your personal information transmitted to our website. Any transmission of personal information is at your own risk. Blue Oak School is not responsible for the circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures contained on its website.
