Who we are

Northwest Christian Schools of Lacey consists of three schools on one campus: Northwest Christian Preschool and Daycare, Northwest Christian Academy, and Northwest Christian High School. We are a non-profit Christian school. Our website address is: http://ncslacey.org.

What personal data we collect and why we collect it

Use of Personal Information

We do not collect any personal information unless you voluntarily provide it by sending us an email, participating in a survey, or completing an online form. Personal information submitted will not be transferred to any non-affiliated third parties unless otherwise stated at the time of collection. When a user submits personally identifiable information, it is used only for the purpose stated at the time of collection.

Children Under Thirteen

NCS does not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from children under thirteen years of age. If you are under the age of thirteen, you must ask your parent or guardian for permission to use this website.

Comments

When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

Contact forms

Information submitted through contact forms are kept for customer service purposes only.

We may use Google Forms embedded on our website as a contact form. The information shared is stored directly into a Google Response Sheet. The information is only accessible by the staff of Northwest Christian Schools and will never be used for anything other than the disclosed purpose of the form. The Google Privacy Policy can be found here: https://policies.google.com/privacy

This site also uses a plug-in called Contact Form 7.

Contact Form 7 Privacy notices are as follows:

With the default configuration, this plugin, in itself, does not:

    • track users by stealth;
    • write any user personal data to the database;
    • send any data to external servers;
    • use cookies.

If you activate certain features in this plugin, the contact form submitter’s personal data, including their IP address, may be sent to the service provider. Thus, confirming the provider’s privacy policy is recommended. These features include:

Cookies

A cookie is a small text file stored by your browser that allows the website to “remember” your preferences (such as calendar settings and site bookmarks) on the site from visit to visit, or to maintain your “logged in” status when visiting protected areas. Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information while on our site. Web browsers have settings allowing you to reject cookies, or selectively accept cookies, or delete cookies previously accepted. Please be aware that rejecting or deleting cookies from our website may make certain functions unavailable to you.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Analytics 

Like most standard website servers, we use website statistic packages such as Slimstat Analytics to analyze trends in how our website is accessed and utilized. Information monitored includes Internet Protocol (IP) addresses, geographic location of visitors (country, city), browser type, Internet Service Provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, platform type, date/time stamp, time spent on pages, and keywords used to find our site via search engines. This information is anonymous and cannot be directly linked to individual users. We may use it to identify high-use or low-use areas of the site, pinpoint problems areas of the site, analyze broad demographic trends in our visitors, and make decisions about how to make it easier for people to find and navigate our website. The Slimstat terms and conditions are found here: https://www.wp-slimstat.com/terms-and-conditions/

Who we share your data with

We do not share your personal data with any non-affiliated third parties.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
