Where consent for the use and disclosure of personal information is required, the School 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 maturity and ability to understand the consequences of the proposed use and disclosure.

"Do Not Track" Signals
Like most standard website servers we use website statistic packages such as Google Analytics to analyze trends in how our website is accessed and utilized. Information monitored includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, geographic location of visitors (country, city), browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, platform type, date/time stamp, time spent on pages, and keywords used to find our site via search engines. This information is anonymous and cannot be directly linked to individual users. We may use it to identify high-use or low-use areas of the site, pinpoint problem areas of the site, analyze broad demographic trends in our visitors, and make decisions about how to make it easier for people to find and navigate our website.
This website takes every precaution to protect our users' personal information. Whenever users submit personal information (such as contact info or credit card info) via online forms, registration, or online purchase, upon submission that information is encrypted via the highest level of SSL (Secured Sockets Layer) available. Servers that store personally identifiable information are in a secure environment. Under no circumstances are credit card numbers permanently stored on our website servers. Bancroft School contracts with Finalsite (finalsite.com) for its website. The various technologies used to power the different site sections meet or exceed all applicable federal regulations for data security and personal information protection: SSL encryption is activated whenever personal data is collected.
Posts to discussion forums, discussion boards, and comments to blogs are viewable by other users. When these areas are not in a password-protected area, they may be viewable by the general public. Please be aware of this when posting personal information in these areas.
When paying online with a credit card, the refund or exchange policy will be outlined according to the specific policies of the event, registration, etc. on the webpage. Any refund from Bancroft School will be within 30 days.
