What information do we collect?

Through this site, Stratford School collects two kinds of information: general and personal.

General information is not specific to you and cannot be traced in any way to you. Such information includes certain non-personal information from visitors to the site (such as the time of day the site is accessed) and certain information in aggregate form (such as statistics relating to the number and frequency of visitors). Stratford School uses general information only in ways that do not identify you, the specific user. This means that general information is never linked to personal information.

Personal information is specific to you and includes such things as your email address or name and mailing address. This type of information is sometimes called "personally identifiable information." The only personal information collected through the StratfordSchools.com site is information you choose to supply in response to a request to schedule a tour, pre-register for an Open House, or other event or offer. The only personal information requested and collected is the parent's name, address, email address, phone number, child’s name and date of birth.

In order to improve our site and to better serve you, Stratford School may share your personal information with its subsidiaries, affiliates, legal successors and trusted third parties.
