What information we collect

If you are a user with general public and anonymous access, the Sidestrand Hall School website does not store or capture personal information but merely logs the user’s IP address that is automatically recognised by the web server.

We collect information from visitors to the Sidestrand Hall School website in three ways:

  1. Requests for information or services via email and online forms
  2. Feedback via an online form
  3. Feedback via an optional online survey

We use Google Analytics and WordPress, which anonymously tracks things like numbers of visits/visitors/pageviews to our website, popular pages, customer journeys, and what browser or device people are using. It does not collect any personal information about the individual user.  This enables us to monitor the performance of the website  and to deliver relevant and timely information to users.
