Regarding information collection and privacy

This privacy policy ("Policy" or "Privacy Policy") applies to all domains and sub-domains of Bodwell High School’s (“School”) website ("Site") These include:


This Policy is designed to tell you about our practices regarding the collection, use, and disclosure of personally identifiable information (“PII”) that you may provide via the School’s Site. Note that the Policy applies both to information obtained from the public areas of the site as well as password-protected areas. Please read this entire Privacy Policy before using or submitting information to this Site.

This Policy applies only to PII that is collected online within Canada. It does not necessarily apply to PII that we collect through offline processes. When this Privacy Policy uses the term "personally identifiable information," we mean information that identifies a particular individual, such as the individual's name, postal address, e-mail address and telephone number, etc. When other information is directly associated with personally identifiable information, this other information also becomes personally identifiable information for purposes of this Policy.

In this Policy, the terms "we," "us," or "our” refer to the School. The terms "you," "your" or "yourself" refer to the user who is using this Site.

Collection of Information

Non-Personally Identifiable Information – Cookies

As part of the standard operation of this Site, we may passively collect some non-personal information about you, such as your IP address, using information-gathering technology, so it may not be readily apparent to you that it is being collected. This information is not PII. At this time, we do not disclose such information, but we may use to test how our site is being used and how it can be improved. At this time, we do not place cookies on our Site. Any changes to these practices will be handled in accordance with “Changes to This Privacy Policy,” below.

We may also provide this information to employees acting on the School’s behalf or to agents or service providers directly involved with the School’s primary functions, in connection with the activities described above and other professional, technical and administrative services. The School will provide only those employees, agents and service providers the personal information they need to perform their functions and only on the condition that they agree to use it consistently with the terms of this Policy, only for the purposes for which we disclose it, and not for their benefit or the benefit of any other third party. Information that Bodwell High School collects may be stored and processed in and transferred between any of the countries in which Bodwell High School operates to enable the use of the information in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

In addition, we will disclose personal information about you if you request or direct us to do so, or if we are required to do so as specified in more detail in "Disclosure Exceptions," below. Except as set forth in this Policy, we will not voluntarily disclose your personal information to other third parties without your permission. We do not sell your personal information.

Provisions above to the contrary notwithstanding, the laws of the Province of British Columbia may restrict the School from notifying individuals that such information has been disclosed.

In the event that the School is ever sold, acquired or otherwise transferred, we reserve the right to transfer our user databases, together with any PII contained therein, to a third party who acquires the assets.
