The KFCH International College recognizes that data protection and privacy are important issues, particularly with regard to the World Wide Web; consequently we take your personal privacy very seriously. The Privacy Policy gives an overview of what information is collected when you access our website and how certain information might be used.

We adhere to the principle of data protection and privacy and endeavor to implement it within the guidance of current legislation.

The privacy of your personal information is our top priority. Any information you submit on this website is for official use only. Information will not be sold or rented to any company or organization. As such, the information that you submit will only be used for college purposes by the college itself or those designated as its agents.

Accessing the KFCH International College website

The college Web servers automatically collect standard, anonymous information, like the IP address of your computer, cookies, access times and the pages visited. This information is used in an anonymous form to monitor usage and to assess the effectiveness of the college website.

In some sections of the college website anonymous data such as page visited or IP address may be used to customize web page content. This information is used in an anonymous form to ensure appropriate and effective delivery of content.

For each visitor, our web server collects usage data; similarly, we use certain analytics systems to provide additional statistics - the type of information obtained might include: the number of page visits per week, the average number of pages viewed by users, domain names (e.g. .com, .ac.uk, .net), referring sites (e.g. Google.com, Yahoo.com), Browser summaries (e.g. the number of visitors using Microsoft Internet Explorer or Firefox) and Operating System reports (e.g. the number of page requests made using Windows XP, Windows Vista, [Mac] OS X or Unix).

On occasion summary statistics may be disclosed to third-parties; however, it is important to understand that the data doesn’t provide any personal information (e.g. email addresses) and isn’t attributed to individuals. The primary purpose for collecting the information, which is used on an aggregate basis, is to improve the content and functionality of our website.

*Note: This data is protected from public access and can only be viewed and disclosed by authorised personnel

Web Forms

Where Web Forms are utilized on the site, users are usually required to supply some sort of personal information; in certain instances this might only be a reply email address; however, elsewhere, considerably more detailed information may be required, e.g. in the Online Application process. In general, forms on the KFCH International College website will either contain an explanation about how the information you supply will be used or will provide a link to this page (Data Protection - see below)

Data Protection

The information you provide to the KFCH International College will be processed in accordance with the provisions of the Data Protection Act (1998) and any other relevant legislation. This data may be used to provide you with further information about relevant services. It may be held on a mailing list or database for this purpose, unless you object (by notifying the College in writing); and it may also be passed on to a third-party (a ‘data processor’) with whom the College has formally contracted to process your data for this purpose, subject to the safeguards concerning privacy and security of data set out in the Act.

Cookies

Cookies are small data structures used by a website to ‘request’ information from a client (usually a web browser), return the information to the web site and then stores the information. There are various instances where the KFCH International College’s website requires the use of Cookies, e.g. in the Online Application process.

Student-to-Student Network(s)

In certain instances the KFCH International College’s website facilitates communication between students (and staff) via online networks. Through these facilities personal information (e.g. an email address) might be made available to other students (and staff). The networks primarily operate on an ‘opt-in’ basis, i.e. you have to request that your details are added to the network and consent to their inclusion. It should be noted, however, that staff at the KFCH International College don’t generally monitor such services, and consequently, the KFCH International College doesn’t accept responsibility for any information or other material transmitted using a particular service. Similarly, the views expressed by students using these (or similar) networks do not reflect the views of the KFCH International College.

If you have access to the Student Portal and/or a VLE, then please read the statements relevant to these systems.

Third-Party Links and information

The KFCH International College’s website has links to third-party websites and information. While links and information are only added if they are perceived to be of relevance to our website users, the KFCH International College does not accept responsibility for their content.
