Your Privacy
W F Joseph Lee Primary School respects your legal rights of privacy when collecting, storing, using, and transmitting personal data. The Privacy Policy Statement explains our privacy policies and practices. It is our policy to comply with the requirements of the Personal Data (Privacy) Ordinance, Chapter 486 of the Laws of Hong Kong, and we pledge to ensure compliance by our staff to the strictest standards of security and confidentiality.


Minimal Collection of Personal Data
We collect your personal data when you register as a user or when you are requested to provide us with your personal data. If you are under the age of 18, we recommend seeking prior consent from your parent or guardian before providing us with any personal data.


The purposes for which we may use your personal data include, but are not limited to: providing and downloading content to you; processing your orders, sending billing to, and receiving payment from you; handling and following up on your service calls, inquiries, and complaints; better understanding the demographics of our users and members to provide better-tailored services; verifying your identity; using for our future marketing purposes and those of third parties; and enabling us or our affiliates or the transferees of such personal data to provide website or other electronic services verification of your identity.


In cases where we collect personal data from you, we will inform you that we are doing so and provide the intended use of such data. We will also give you the opportunity to opt-out, restricting the use of your personal data. We agree to take all practicable steps to keep your personal data confidential, but we may transfer or assign such data to any actual or proposed assignee, transferee, or successor of our rights in respect of our users.

Unless expressly mentioned in the Privacy Policy Statement, we will not disclose your personal data unless we are required to do so by law or if we reasonably believe such action is necessary to: comply with laws or applicable regulations; protect and defend our rights and property; protect against misuse or unauthorized use of our website; or protect the personal safety or property of our users, members, or the public.


Links to Other websites
The Privacy Policy Statement applies only to the Website. If you click on any hyperlink or advertisement linking to another website provided on the Website, you will leave the Website for another location. At any other website, the protection of your privacy, personal data, and your exposure to cookies are not our responsibility. You are advised to refer to the privacy policy of that other location (if any).


Web Logs
When you come to the Website, our server software may record the domain name of your computer. We may also track the pages you visit. We do these recordings and tracings so that we can measure the traffic, gauge the popularity of various parts of the Website, gain some general knowledge about our visitors, and market the Website to advertisers with whom we may share summarised traffic data. This information will not identify you as an individual.


After we have collected your personal data, we will maintain it securely in our system. Your personal data, however stored, will only be accessed by our authorised employees or contractors. Where personal data is stored electronically in an independent server, it will be password-protected or under some equivalent form of protection, and accessible only by authorised personnel of W F Joseph Lee Primary School or our contractors. Employees and contractors designated to handle personal data will be instructed to do so only in accordance with the Privacy Policy Statement.

We shall take every step to ensure that your personal data is properly protected. However, given the nature of the Internet, we cannot guarantee absolute security. We accept no responsibility for any unauthorised access, and if you are concerned about such unauthorised access, you should not provide us with your personal data.


Use of Personal Data in Legal Proceedings
If it becomes necessary to take action against you for any reason whatsoever including recovering from you any money you owe us, you expressly agree that the personal data provided by you can be relied upon in identifying and taking legal action against you.


Third-Party Services
We may use third-party services, such as website analytics tools, to collect and analyze non-personal information on our behalf. These third-party services have their own privacy policies, and we are not responsible for their practices.


Your Rights to Access and Retention
You may request access to, correct, and update personal data relating to you in any of our records at any time. You may also ask us to delete you from any active mailing or distribution list kept by us. To exercise any of these rights, you should write to us at the address below, with the envelope marked 'Confidential.'


In response, we may ask you to provide certain details about yourself so that we can be sure you are the person to whom the personal data refers.
