Privacy Policy

We process the personal data of our former, current, and prospective staff members, students, and students' family members in accordance with current data privacy policies set forth by the European Union's General Data Protection Regulation.

ICSB’s Responsibilities Regarding Processing of Personal Data


Collection and storage of staff, students, or family’s data will be limited to that which they have agreed to (consent) or is necessary by law e.g. for employment, or for enrollment, or for the legitimate interest of the school.

The school will follow practices (see below) and policy to confidentially and securely store and retain staff, volunteer, student, and family data. Data subjects will be notified if there’s a privacy incident likely to result in a high risk to their rights and freedoms. See our Data Storage and Retention Practices for more details.

Photos and videos of the student and staff members will only be used for the yearbook, website, social media, and other promotion with individual (staff and students aged 14 and above) or parental consent (all students).

Your email contact information will be kept by the school, but you may choose to unsubscribe from school correspondence at any time after employment, enrollment, or association with the school ends.

The school will respect the privacy of staff members and will only look into personal files and correspondence if they have an actual legal concern. In which case, you will be notified and, if possible, present.

Staff, student, and parent data is also shared with certain third-party data processors for educational or operational purposes. See the list of Third-Party Companies that occasionally process the personal data of our students, staff, volunteers, and families.
