  • Privacy Policy

    POLICY PURPOSE AND OBJECTIVES
    This Privacy Policy sets forth the policies of Marin Horizon School (“MHS” and “we” or “our”) with respect to nonpublic personal information you provide through this web site (the "Site"). These policies may be changed at any time, in which case the revised Privacy Policy will apply to information collected after the date the Privacy Policy is changed and posted. Notice of any change will be provided by updating the “Effective Date” listed at the end of this Privacy Policy. By using the Site, you consent to the terms and conditions of this Privacy Policy.

    EXECUTIVE SUMMARY
    MHS recognizes the value of your privacy and thus appreciates concerns you may have about (a) information you provide when you visit the Site and (b) how we treat that information. We encourage you to read this entire Privacy Policy as it sets forth our policies with respect to personal information you provide us through our Site. Other privacy practices may apply to information you provide to us through other channels. Personal information refers to information that allows us to identify you, such as your name, child’s name and grade, address, zip/postal codes, telephone number, organization or business name if applicable, e-mail address, credit card and bank account information, etc.

    OUR POLICY
    Personal Information Collected
    1. We maintain this Site for informational, fundraising and online giving purposes and in order to facilitate your interaction with us. At our Site, we only collect personally identifiable data when voluntarily and knowingly submitted by a visitor. You can have general access to our Site and browse pages describing our institution without providing any personal information or being required to register at our Site. However, you may not be able to access all parts of our Site or interact with us online without supplying personal information. For example, you may need to provide us with your personal information in order to complete online forms or applications or to facilitate your online giving, or to include your contact information in the online directory. If you ask to receive additional information, we will ask you to provide us with your personal information so we can contact you to respond to your request. If you wish to make an online donation, we will ask you to provide us with your personal information to facilitate the transaction. We also will receive your personal information if you submit it to us when you e-mail comments to the Site or if you complete surveys on our Site. If, as a MHS constituent, you register with the Site you will be provided with a Username and Password which you must provide to us to login and to obtain access to password protected portions of our Site.
    Always remember that the choice to provide us with your personal information is your own and you can elect not to access portions of the Site or use Site features that would require you to submit your personal information to us on our Site.

    2. Use and Disclosure of Information.
    We use your personal information for five primary purposes:
    • To make the Site easier for you to use by not making you enter your personal information more than once.
    • To help you quickly find information regarding MHS, its alumni and parents, and other services we provide.
    • To help us create and deliver content most relevant to you.
    • To alert you to special events, volunteer opportunities, updated information and other news and information from MHS.
    • To fulfill or respond to a request from you, such as to register you for an event, include you in the online directory, respond to your admissions inquiry, or to send you notifications by text message or email.
    We do not disclose any of your personal information to anyone unless you have given us permission to do so (such as permission to post on the Site’s online directory), and except as expressly set forth below.

    We may share your information with individuals or companies that perform services for us, such as to our attorneys, and certain service providers, such as third-party web site hosts and financial institutions for the purposes of online giving. These service providers may have access to your information as needed to perform their functions, but may not use or disclose your information for other purposes.

    We may also disclose your personal information if we believe such action is needed to: (1) comply with the law or any government or self-regulatory organization request or investigation, (2) protect against misuse or unauthorized access of this Site, or (3) protect the personal safety, property or rights of any member of the MHS community.

    Non-Personal Information Collected
    Visitors to our Site should be aware that non-personal information and data may be automatically collected by our Site. By tracking user trends and patterns of how people search, we can better understand our user base. This helps us deliver better and more personalized services, improve the content and administration of our Site, facilitate use of our Site by visitors, and diagnose problems with our server.

    Shared Aggregating Data.We may share aggregate, statistical and other non-personal information with certain other third-parties with which we have a relationship. For example, we may share aggregate information or statistics or information you provide us as described above, which does not identify you personally, such as user volume and demographics, click-stream patterns and the domain name of the site from which visitors are connecting.
    Security.

    We are concerned with the safety and security of your sessions on our Site, the information you provide us online, and any transactions you conduct with us online. We have implemented and maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards consistent with standard protocols in the industry to help guard your nonpublic personal information, including protection against the loss, misuse, interception, access and alteration of information you send us. However, no method of data transmission over the Internet or data storage is 100% secure and therefore, we cannot guarantee the absolute security of any information transmitted to or from the Site.
    Updating and Correcting Information.

    If you need to change the personal information you have provided on the Site, you may update or correct this information by logging into your account and accessing the “My Profile” section within your account. We encourage you to update your personal information promptly if it changes.

    In the “My Profile” section, you may also manage the personal information you choose to share on the Site’s online directory and the email notifications you receive from us. Please note that you cannot opt-out of receiving administrative and transaction-related emails from us.
    Age Restrictions.

    This Site is not intended for children under the age of 13. We do not knowingly collect any personally identifiable information from children under the age of 13, and no part of the Site is designed to attract anyone under the age of 13. If you become aware that your child has provided us with personal information, please contact us. If we become aware that a child under 13 has provided us with Personal Information, we will remove and not use or maintain such information. We recommend that no one under the age of 18 submit personally identifiable information to our Site.
