We may release account information when we believe, in good faith, that such release is reasonably necessary to (i) enforce law, (ii) enforce or apply the terms of any of our user agreements or (iii) protect the rights, property or safety of St. Matthew Catholic School, our users, or others.
Sharing of Information
St. Matthew Catholic School does, upon explicit request of users, share information with other parties and gather information from other private data providers. For example, the school receives test scores from testing agencies and will send transcripts to other schools. This is done only at the request of users (persons to whom the information applies). When a user submits personally identifiable information, it is used only for the purpose stated at the time of collection. It is against school policy to release confidential information gathered through the Web.
How St. Matthew Catholic School Protects Your Information
When you access your personal information, we use a secure server. The secure server software (SSL) encrypts information you input before it is sent to us. Furthermore, all of the data we collect is protected against unauthorized access. As effective as encryption technology is, however, no security system is completely impenetrable, so we cannot guarantee absolute security of our database, nor can we guarantee that information you supply won’t be intercepted while being transmitted to us over the Internet.
Several areas within stmatthewcath.org enable you to pay for products or services online with a credit card. Unless otherwise noted these transactions are encrypted. It is school policy that confidential information you enter in the transaction is used only for the purposes described in that transaction, unless an additional use is specifically stated on that site.
St. Matthew Catholic School makes message boards, and news groups available to its users. The school does not ordinarily announce information publicly, however, parish/school events are posted on our public page. When non-secured communications are posted in areas that are not password protected, they may be viewable by the general public.
It is school policy that confidential information gathered in online surveys is used only for the research purposes indicated in the survey. Unless otherwise noted on the specified survey, your answers are confidential and individual responses will not be shared with other parties. Aggregate data from surveys may be shared with external third parties.
