This Privacy Policy governs the collection and use of personal information we collect from and through the Fairfield Country Day School website – http://www.fairfieldcountryday.org.

Use of Personal Information
We do not collect any personal information unless you voluntarily provide it, such as by sending us e-mail or completing an on-line form. When you submit personally-identifiable information, we use it for the purpose stated at the time of collection – for example, if you submit an online admissions inquiry, we will use the information we receive in connection with our admissions process. We may also use and disclose your information (i) to support our internal operations and the improvement of our website, (ii) to comply with applicable law, and (iii) to communicate with you, including responding to your inquiries. Our website also provides a directory of students, parents, staff, faculty and alumni. This directory is only available to individuals with a User ID and password to our website. If you would not like to be included in this online directory or would not like your child to be included in this directory, you may opt-out of the directory by contacting the Director of Operations as provided below.

Consent
In compliance with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act, we do not intend to collect information from children under 13 except with the consent of a parent or guardian. For example, our online admissions inquiry form is intended to be completed by a parent or guardian. If we become aware that a child’s personally-identifiable Information has been collected without the consent of such child’s parent or guardian, we will use all reasonable efforts to delete such information from our database. In the case of a child over 13 years of age, we may also seek consent from the parent depending on the circumstances.

Cookies
Cookies are small text files stored on your computer by a website that assigns a numerical user ID and stores certain information about your online browsing. We use cookies on this site to help us recognize you. No personal information is stored on any cookie that we use. If you wish, you can adjust your web browser’s privacy settings to delete cookies upon exiting websites or when you close your browser. You may also configure your browser to block cookies; however, doing so may negatively impact your user experience.

Log Files
Like most standard website servers we use website statistic packages such as Google Analytics to analyze trends in how our website is accessed and utilized. Information monitored includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, geographic location of visitors (country, city), browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, platform type, date/time stamp, time spent on pages, and keywords used to find our site via search engines. This information is anonymous and cannot be directly linked to individual users. We may use it to identify high-use or low-use areas of the site, pinpoint problem areas of the site, analyze broad demographic trends in our visitors, and make decisions about how to make it easier for people to find and navigate our website.

Links
This website may contain links to other sites. 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 leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each and every Web site that collects personally-identifiable information. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by this website.

Security
This website takes every reasonable precaution to protect our users' personal information. Whenever users submit personal information (such as contact info or credit card info) via online forms, registration, or online purchase, upon submission, that information is encrypted via SSL (Secured Sockets Layer). Servers that store personally-identifiable information are in a secure environment. Under no circumstances are credit card numbers permanently stored on our website servers.

Changes to this Policy
We reserve the right, at our discretion, to modify our privacy practices and update and make changes to this Privacy Policy at any time. This Privacy Policy is current as of the “last revised” date which appears at the bottom of this page. We will treat personally-identifiable information in a manner consistent with the Privacy Policy under which it was collected, unless we have your consent to treat it differently.
