Privacy Policy

Our Commitment To Privacy

Stoa School knows that you care how information about you is used and shared, and we appreciate you trusting that we will do so carefully and sensibly. To better protect your privacy, we provide this Privacy Policy explaining our practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used by Stoa School. The information below explains our policy regarding your privacy, both online and offline.

What Personally Identifiable Information Is Collected By Stoa School?

When you visit our website or make a donation online or offline, you may provide us with personal information (such as name, address, email address, telephone numbers and/or credit/debit card information) that you knowingly choose to disclose, which is collected on an individual basis for various purposes. These purposes include registering to receive email newsletters or other materials, requesting further information from us about projects and services, donating to us, ordering merchandise, making requests, submitting a form on our website, or simply asking a question. We receive and store any information you enter on our website or give us in any other way, whether it is online or offline. We ask for personal information so that we can fulfill your request. This information is retained and used in accordance with existing laws, rules, regulations, and other policies. Stoa School does not collect personal information from you unless you provide it to us (with the exception of data cookies). If you choose not to provide any of that information, we may not be able to fulfill your request, but you will still be free to browse the other section of the website. This means that you can visit our site without telling us who you are or revealing any personally identifiable information about yourself.

The Way We Use Information

When you supply information about yourself for a specific purpose, we use the information for only that purpose (such as to provide the service or information you have requested). For example, you may be asked to give us individual information to receive information, to make a donation, etcetera.

We use return email addresses to answer emails we receive. Your email may also be added to our mailing list (you may unsubscribe from this mailing list at any time either by clicking ‘Unsubscribe’ within the email or by contacting us).

Stoa School does not sell, rent, give-away or share its email addresses or other personal contact information with outside sources. Stoa School also does not send mailings on behalf of other organizations.

Should any material changes be made to the ways in which we use personally identifiable information, Stoa School will take reasonable measures to obtain written or email consent from you. We will also post the changes to our use of personally identifiable information on our website at least 30 days prior to a change.

Our Commitment to Data Security

Personally identifiable information is stored on a secure server not publicly accessible. Further, personally identifiable information is only accessed by Stoa School personnel on a “need to know” basis.  Additionally, Stoa School does not store any sensitive data such as credit card numbers; if you choose to store this information whilst making a donation, this information is stored securely by one of our payment partners.

Choice/Opt-Out

If you have registered to receive communications from us and later change your mind, you may contact us to have your name and contact information removed from our distribution lists. You may contact us through the website at any time.

What Anonymous Information Is Collected By Stoa School?

As per Cookie usage outlined above, anonymous information is collected for every donor and visitor to this site. This includes pages viewed, date and time, and browser type. IP numbers are not stored, but are temporarily used to determine domain type and in some cases, geographic region. We do not make any association between this information and a donor or visitor’s identity.

Automatic Information

When you visit our website, our servers make a log of basic information corresponding to the sites and pages you have visited. This information is stored primarily to track the effectiveness of our website and individual sections and pages within them.

How Does This Site Use Cookies?
