Collection of Information
A cookie is a small text file stored by your browser that allows the website to “remember” your preferences (such as calendar settings and site bookmarks) on the site from visit to visit, or to maintain your “logged in” status when visiting protected areas. Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information while on our site. Web browsers have settings allowing you to reject cookies, selectively accept cookies, or delete cookies previously accepted. Please be aware that rejecting or deleting cookies from our website may make certain functions unavailable to you. Some browsers have incorporated “Do Not Track” features. Most of these features, when turned on, send a signal or preference to the website or online service that a user visits, indicating that the user does not wish to be tracked. The Site does currently respond to a Do Not Track signal.
In order for you to access certain services that we offer via the Site (including, but not limited to, requesting information about Cate School, establishing an account on the Site, and/or initiating an application for admission to Cate School), we require you to provide us with certain information that personally identifies you (“Personal Information”). Personal Information includes the name, age, mailing address, telephone number, and e-mail address of both prospective students and their parents. It also includes the gender, current educational institution, and grade level of prospective students. If you communicate with us by e-mail or otherwise complete online forms, any information provided in such communication may be collected as Personal Information. In accordance with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 (COPPA), we do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from minors without obtaining parental consent.
We will retain Personal Information we process on behalf of users for as long as, but no longer than necessary to (i) provide the above-described services offered through the Site and (ii) comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes and enforce our agreements.
Use of Personal Information
We do not collect any Personal Information unless you voluntarily provide it by sending us an email, complete an online application or form, or contact us by phone. Personal Information submitted will not be transferred to any non-affiliated third parties unless otherwise stated at the time of collection. When a user submits Personal Information it is used only for the purpose stated at the time of collection.
Consent to Personal Data Processing
By providing data to Cate School, I confirm that pursuant to the provision of Article 4 (11) of the GDPR in force as of May 25, 2018, Cate School as a data controller, may process my Personal Information for the purposes of conducting its educational business and for sending School communications. This consent is also considered as the consent to send electronic mail messages under the GDPR provisions. At the same time, I agree that the controller may also process my Personal Information through a data processor under the terms and conditions set out by the GDPR. The consent is provided for the unlimited period until it is revoked. The Personal Information may be modified or supplemented, and the consent to processing thereof may be revoked by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. In such a case, the provided Personal Information will be updated, blocked, or deleted. Receiving electronic mail or messages from Cate School may be revoked in the same manner, or by following the unsubscribe link included in an electronic mail or message, at any time.
You may choose not to provide us with any Personal Information. In such an event, you can still access and use much of the Site; however you will not be able to access and use those portions of the Site or related services that require your Personal Information.

Please be aware that we are not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they are not on our site and to read the privacy statements of each and every website that collects personally identifiable information.
