Use of Personal Information
The school processes personal data of its students and parents/guardians. The school considers that the proper handling of personal data is vitally important and is aware of the privacy legislation (General Data Protection Regulation and the UAVG). The school is responsible for the careful handling of your and your child’s personal data.
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 personally identifiable information it is used only for the purpose stated at the time of collection.
Where consent for the use and disclosure of personal information is required, the school will seek consent from the appropriate person. In the case of a student’s personal information, the school will seek the consent from the student and/ or parent depending on the age of the student. If the student has not yet reached the age of sixteen, his or her legal representative’s consent is required. Therefore, students at the age of sixteen or older must give consent themselves. Consent may be withdrawn at any time.
