Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy sets forth the policies of the Sonoma Country Day School (“SCDS” 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. By using the Site, you consent to the terms and conditions of this Privacy Policy.

1. Our Policy.
SCDS 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 credit card and bank account information and to information that allows us to identify you, such as your name, address, zip/postal codes, telephone number, organization name if applicable, e-mail address, etc.

2. Personal Information Collected.
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. If, as a SCDS 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. 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.

3. Use of Information.
We use your personal information for four 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 SCDS, 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 SCDS.

We do not disclose any of your personal information to anyone, other than to our affiliates, except as permitted by law, such as to our attorneys, and certain service providers, such as third-party web site hosts. We will only release information about you if you direct us to do so, if compelled to do so by law or in connection with any government or self-regulatory organization request or investigation. We may also disclose information you provide to us to financial institutions for the purposes of online giving. If such a disclosure is made, we will require such third-parties to treat your private information with confidentiality.

4. 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.

5. 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. 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.

6. 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. We restrict access to nonpublic personal information about you to those of our employees and our agents who need to know the information to enable us to provide our services to you, and we emphasize to them the importance of maintaining the security, confidentiality and integrity of your personal information.

7. Children's Online Privacy Protection Act.
We comply with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 ("COPPA"). COPPA requires that web site operators never knowingly request personally identifiable information from anyone under the age of 13 without requesting verifiable parental consent.
