Sending information to other countries

We may send your child's information to countries which do not have the same level of protection for personal information as there is the UK. For example, we may:

  • store your child's information on cloud computer storage based overseas; or
  • communicate with you about your child by email when you are overseas (for example, when you are on holiday).

In each instance, except for email communications, we will have separate agreements in place with the parties involved and additionally make sure that this data remains within the European Union / European Economic Area or in the case of the United States of America the US / EU privacy Shield is in place.
