Eastern Multi-Academy Trust considers the privacy of its users to be a serious issue. We are committed to protecting and preserving the privacy of visitors when using our websites or communicating electronically with us.

This policy covers how the Eastern Multi-Academy Trust treats personal information that it collects and receives, including information to your past use of our website. Personal information is information about you that is personally identifiable like your name, address, email address or phone number, and that is not otherwise publicly available.
This policy does not apply to the practices of companies that we do not own or control, or to people that we do not employ or manage.
Information collection and use
When we provide services, we want to make them easy, useful and reliable. Where services are delivered on the internet, this sometimes involves placing small amounts of information on your device; for example, computer or mobile phone. These include small files known as cookies. They cannot be used to identify you personally.
These pieces of information are used to improve services for you through, for example:
• enabling a service to recognise your device so you don’t have to give the same information several times during one task
• recognising that you may already have given a username and password so you don’t need to do it for every web page requested
• measuring how many people are using services, so they can be made easier to use and there’s enough capacity to ensure they are fast
Cookies do not contain any personal information about you and cannot be used to identify an individual user. If you choose not to accept the cookie, this will not affect your access to the majority of facilities available on our website.
All computers have the ability to decline cookies. You can easily decline or remove cookies from your computer using the settings within the Internet Options section in your browser control panel.
We will take reasonable technical and organisational precautions to prevent the loss, misuse or alteration of your personal information. While we strive to keep the information that you supply secure, please be aware that the Internet is not a fully secure medium. We use secure servers for collecting sensitive information.
Disclosing personal data about our staff
As an employer, Eastern Multi-Academy Trust takes its responsibilities regarding the protection of the personal privacy of its staff and staff at individual academies seriously. Professional contact details for staff members are only made available via our public website if consent has been given for such a disclosure. We will respond to email requests for individual staff members’ contact details by issuing their work contact details only. We will not disclose any private non-work contact details. Any request for the latter will be forwarded to the staff member concerned, who will then decide whether to respond or not.
