The International Collge Spain, Madrid ("ICS") is committed to safeguarding Personal Data. This PICS is addressed to Parents or Guardians that are responsible for one or more prospective, past or present Students of any School managed or owned by Nord Anglia Education (“NAE”) Hong Kong and situated in Spain. It explains how we collect and use your Personal Data and the Personal Data of each Student you are responsible for during the course of our provision of educational and related services to them.

If you are the Parent or Guardian of a Student who is, or becomes, competent to make their own decisions relating to the processing of their personal data, then you must provide a copy of this PICS to them. More information about provision and withdrawal of consent is set out at Consent.

This PICS is intended to explain our privacy practices and covers the following areas:

By providing your information, or the information of any Student you are responsible for (whether via our website, in person, in writing or over the phone) to us, you acknowledge the processing set out in this PICS. Further notices highlighting certain uses we wish to make of your Personal Data together with the ability to opt in or out of selected uses may also be provided to you when we collect Personal Data from you.

Sharing Personal Data with other organisations

In order to provide our education and schooling services (including extra-curricular activities) effectively, we sometimes need to share information with other organisations. We share information with the following entities:

NAE HK and our Regional Office Teams, which undertake management functions; and

  • Our suppliers, who assist us in providing educational and extra-curricular services. A list  of our suppliers can be provided upon request by Contacting us.
  • Where these entities are outside of the EEA, we ensure that there are adequate safeguards in place to ensure the security of your Personal Data.  See Export of data outside of the EEA for more information.
     
3. Use of Special Categories of Personal Data 

As a general rule, we do not process Special Categories of Personal Data or Criminal Conduct Data of Students, Parents or Guardians. However, in order to provide our education and schooling services (including extra-curricular activities) effectively to you and any Student you are responsible for, we are, in certain very limited circumstances, required to collect, process and disclose Special Categories of Personal Data of Students, including but not limited to:

  • Photographs of Students, so that we can identify them for security purposes.
  • Health/medical information comprising information relating to any injury a Student may sustain at School or whilst undertaking an extra-curricular activity; any disability; health conditions relevant to education; and any health problems that could affect the ability to learn, so that we can maintain a safe environment for all Students;

Where necessary, we may also process Criminal Conduct Data, so that we can deal with serious behavioural issues and report to authorities appropriately. (If this happens consent will be asked for at that time.)

In addition to the usual appropriate technical and organisational measures we implement to ensure the security and integrity of the personal data processed by us, we may implement additional measures in relation to Special Categories of Personal Data, as appropriate. These may include segregation, pseudonymisation or restriction of access to the data.

Where we must process Special Categories of Personal Data , we will do so on the following lawful bases (see Lawful Bases for more information):

Special Category 

Lawful bases / condition for processing

Health/medical information

Explicit consent unless there is a requirement to process for substantial public interest, to protect the vital interests of a person, or in relation to legal claims.

Religious beliefs, where required a Students to observe religious/cultural practices, customs and/or celebrations

Explicit consent (at the time of collection, if collected) unless there is a requirement to process in relation to legal claims.

Photographs of Students

Explicit consent unless there is a requirement to process in relation to legal claims.

Criminal Conduct Data

Explicit consent (at the time of collection, if collected), unless the criminal offence in question leads to the Student’s suspension or expulsion from School where we will rely on substantial public interest (Section 31(4) of the Education Act) or the data is processed in relation to legal claims.

 

Consent

Where a Student is under the age of 18, we will obtain explicit consent from a Parent/Guardian responsible for the Student, on his/her behalf. This consent will remain valid until it is withdrawn by the Parent/Guardian who provided it, or the Student, provided that:

  • The Student has legal capacity to withdraw consent (see Legal Capacity); and
  • Withdrawal of consent does not have a prejudicial impact on the interests of the Student.

In any instance where a Student under the age of 18 who was deemed to be capable of providing consent later withdraws that consent against his/her own best interests, we may revert to a Parent/Guardian to obtain consent on his/her behalf.

We will obtain consent directly from any Student over the age of 18.
 

4. Legal capacity of Students to make decisions about the processing of their Personal Data

Legal capacity will be assessed as follows:

  • Students under 13 years of age Where a Student is below the age of 13, they will not be considered sufficiently mature to make decisions about the processing of their personal data. We will provide these Students with a simplified, age-appropriate version of this PICS and rely on the consent provided by a Parent/Guardian, as required.
  • Students between 13-18 years of age Where a Student is above the age of 13 but below the age of 18, they will be presumed to be sufficiently mature to make decisions about the processing of their personal data, subject to an individual evaluation of their maturity and understanding, if deemed necessary. We will provide these Students with a copy of this PICS but continue to rely on the consent provided by a Parent/Guardian, as required, as described here Consent.
  • Students over 18 years of age Where a Student has reached the age of 18, they will be considered to be sufficiently mature to make decisions about the processing of their personal data. We will provide these Students with a copy of this PICS and re-obtain consent from them directly, as required.
     
5. Transmission, storage and security of Personal Data

Security over the internet

No data transmission over the Internet or through a website can be guaranteed to be secure from intrusion. However, we maintain commercially reasonable physical, electronic and procedural safeguards to protect your Personal Data, and that of any Student you are responsible for, in accordance with data protection legislative requirements.

All information you, or any Student you are responsible for, provide to us is stored on our or our suppliers’ secure servers and accessed and used subject to our security policies and standards. We ask that you, or any Student you are responsible for:

  • Refrain from sharing any password providing access to certain parts of our websites, applications or systems with any other person; and
  • Comply with any other security procedures that we may notify you of from time to time.

Export outside the EEA

Your Personal Data, or that of any Student you are responsible for, may be transferred to, stored in or accessed by staff or suppliers in, a destination outside the European Economic Area (EEA). Regardless of location, we will impose the same data protection safeguards that we deploy inside the EEA.

Certain countries outside the EEA have been approved by the European Commission as providing essentially equivalent protections to EEA data protection laws and therefore no additional safeguards are required to export Personal Data to these jurisdictions. In countries which have not had these approvals, (see the full list here http://ec.europa.eu/justice/data-protection/international-transfers/adequacy/index_en.htm) we will transfer it subject to:

  • European Commission approved contractual terms; or
  • (in respect of transfers to the United States of America only) Privacy Shield;

that impose equivalent data protection obligations directly on the recipient, unless we are permitted under applicable data protection law to make such transfers without such formalities.

Please contact us if you would like to see a copy of the specific safeguards applied to the export of Personal Data relating to you or any Student you are responsible for.

Storage limits

We will retain your Personal Data for as long as is necessary for the processing purpose(s) for which they were collected and any other permitted linked purpose (for example certain transaction details and correspondence may be retained until the time limit for claims in respect of the transaction has expired or in order to comply with regulatory requirements regarding the retention of such data). So if Personal Data is used for two purposes we will retain it until the purpose with the latest period expires; but we will stop using it for the purpose with a shorter period one that period expires. We restrict access to Personal Data to those persons who need to use it for the relevant purpose(s).

Our retention periods are based on business needs and relevant laws. Records that are no longer needed are either irreversibly anonymised (and the anonymised information may be retained) or securely destroyed.
 

6. Rights relating to Personal Data

Be aware of the rights that Data Subjects have in relation to their Personal Data

Data Subjects have a number of rights relating to how their personal data is used. Please be aware that certain exceptions apply to the exercise of these rights and so you will not be able to exercise them in all situations. In addition, these will vary slightly between EU member states. If you wish to exercise any of these rights we will check your entitlement and respond within a reasonable timescale.

Students may be able to exercise these rights independently, provided that they have Legal Capacity.

Where applicable, you will have the following rights relating to your Personal Data or the Personal Data of a Student you are responsible for:

  • Subject Access►Be provided to any Personal Data held about you/a Student you are responsible for, by NAE. This information will generally be provided within one month of us confirming your identity and understanding the scope of your request.
  • Rectification►Require to have inaccurate Personal data amended.
  • Erasure: ► Require us to erase Personal Data in certain circumstances. If the Personal Data has been made public, reasonable steps will be taken to inform other controllers that are processing the data that you have requested the erasure of any links to, copies or replication of it.
  • Withdrawal of consent: ► Withdraw any consents to processing that you have given us or that have been given on your behalf and prevent further processing, if there is no other ground under which we can rely to process your Personal Data.
  • Restriction: ► Require certain Personal Data to be marked as restricted in some circumstances, for example, whilst we resolve any complaint we may have received. Restriction means that whilst we still store the data, we will not process it until such time as the restriction may be lifted.
  • Portability: ► Have a copy of any Personal Data you have provided to us returned to you, or transmitted to another controller in a commonly used, machine readable format.
  • Prevent processing: ► Require NAE to stop any processing based on the legitimate interests ground unless NAE’s reasons for undertaking that processing outweigh any prejudice to your data protection rights.
  • Marketing: ► Require NAE to prevent processing of your Personal Data for direct marketing purposes.
  • Raise a complaint: ► Complain to your local Data Protection Authority about our processing of your Personal Data.

If you have any queries relating to your rights or exercise of your rights, please contact us.
