Privacy and Cookie Policy

The following document relates solely to information gathered via www.queenscollege.org.uk.

What we collect, and how we use it

Personal Information 
Our website features a couple of forms in which you are asked for personal information such as your name and contact details. In these circumstances, you will be anticipating a direct response from Queen’s College. The information you provide will be retained purely for internal use and communicating directly with you. We fully respect the privacy of parents, prospective parents, guardians and Old Queenians, and will never pass this information on to a third party.

Tracking Information 
Our website uses analytical cookies as part of Google Analytics. These are cookies that track visitors' usage of our website and how they reach it (but rest assured that information is collected anonymously – no personal information is stored). The reason this information is important to us is because it helps us to identify how people tend to use our website and what software they use to view it, which in turn allows us to refine the website and make it more useful. For example, a substantial percentage of visitors to our site now use mobile devices rather than desktop computers - knowing this allows us to take into consideration that many people are viewing our website on small displays and/or devices that use touch interfaces.

If you wish to opt out of Google Analytics on any website you visit, there is a browser plug-in available from Google which will manage this for you.

Third party websites 
Although we provide links to many third party websites, Queen’s College bears no responsibility for the content of these websites as they do not fall under our control. Please refer to the privacy statements of those websites for details on how they use your information.
