Hale School, and its extension programmes such as Hale@home and Hale Future School, collects personal information, including sensitive information about students, parents or guardians, or registered members of any related website or service, before and during the course of a student's enrolment at the School, or as members of the extension programmes. The primary purpose of collecting this information is to enable the School to provide educational resources and services.
Hale Future School is committed to providing you with the best possible customer service experience. Hale Future School is bound by the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth), which sets out a number of principles concerning the privacy of individuals.
Collection of your personal information
There are many aspects of the site which can be viewed without providing personal information, however, for access to Hale Future School member services and customer support features, you are required to submit personally identifiable information. This may include but not limited to a unique username and password, or provide sensitive information in the recovery of your lost password.
Some of the membership information we may collect, is to satisfy the School's legal obligations, particularly to enable the School to discharge its duty of care. Some laws governing or relating to the operation of schools require that certain information is collected. These include Public Health and Mandatory Notification laws. Health information about students is sensitive information within the terms of the National Privacy Principle 10 under the Privacy Act. We ask you to provide medical reports about students from time to time. On occasions Health information may be disclosed to staff to enable the School to discharge its duty of care.
Sharing of your personal information
We may occasionally hire other companies to provide services on our behalf, including but not limited to handling customer support enquiries, processing transactions or customer freight shipping. Those companies will be permitted to obtain only the personal information they need to deliver the service. Hale Future School takes reasonable steps to ensure that these organisations are bound by confidentiality and privacy obligations in relation to the protection of your personal information.
The School from time to time discloses personal and sensitive information to others for administrative and educational purposes. This includes other schools, government departments, medical practitioners, and people providing services to the School, including specialist visiting teachers, and tutors.

The School from time to time photographs and videotapes students within the school environment, as as part of extension and educational programmes.

Should you not wish your, or your child's photograph to be used for promotional purposes, the School’s Privacy Officer should be advised.
From time to time, we may use customer information for new, unanticipated uses not previously disclosed in our privacy notice.
