The information we collect and why

If you would like to be added to our Daily Bulletin mailing list, we will ask for your email address. This list is safely stored with MailChimp (https://mailchimp.com/).
 
When you’re on our mailing list, we will send you our bulletin at approximately 7am Monday-Saturday. We may also from time to time send information and news from Schools Improvement outside of this bulletin, including from our parent companies INK Education and John Catt Educational. 
 
We will not pass your details to any third party without express consent.
 
You can asked to be removed from the mailing list at any time.
 

Use of Cookies and Google Analytics

Cookies are small amounts of information that are sent to and are stored on your computer. They are used to identify you when you visit the site, and to make your use of the site more convenient for you. Cookies are used to remember preferences and to deliver a faster and more personalised service.
 
Our website may contain advertisements created and provided by a third party. These advertisements may place cookies on your computer that collect information about you and your use of the internet. JCE does not control the collection or use of your information by such advertisers and this privacy policy does not apply to such information. If you do not wish to have cookies placed on your computer you can disable cookies on your internet browser.
 
In addition, our websites use third party cookies from Google Analytics, which helps us track traffic to our websites and understand how our users found our sites and how they use them. We may also use advertising features of Google Analytics, which include:
 
Remarketing with Google Analytics – the integrations between both our web analytics and paid advertising platforms together to give us additional insight. This allows us to tailor our advertising to ensure the right types and offers are shown to you while you are using the internet outside our website.
Google Display Network Impression Reporting – which gives us additional insight into who has viewed our paid digital advertising on other websites. This will help us optimise and tailor our advertising.
Google Analytics Demographics and Interest Reporting – which gives us insight into behaviour information relating to visitor age, gender and interests on an anonymous and aggregate level. This will help us to understand browsing behaviour to give you a better experience whilst visiting our sites.
The information gathered from Google Analytics is aggregated and therefore anonymous (it does not include personal information which is likely to identify you). The information may be used to serve you ads in relation to our products when you visit our website and third party websites. You can access information about Google’s Privacy Policy here.
 
While we recommend that users enable cookies on their browsers in order to enjoy all the features of our website, it’s very much up to you. 
 
You can opt out of these features through your computer’s Ads Settings, Ad Settings for mobile apps, or any other available means. You can click here for Google’s currently available opt-outs for the web.
 

Links

 
There are outbound links on our websites to third party websites which Schools Improvement has no control over. 
 
We accept no responsibility or liability for any practices on third party websites. We advise you to carefully read third party privacy statements prior to the use of any third party website.
 

International Transfers

Due to the international nature of the internet, the collecting and processing of your personal information in accordance with SI’s privacy policy may involve transferring the data between countries in which JCE, subsidiaries of JCE and strategic partners are located.
 
SI shall take steps to ensure that any transfer of data to a country or territory outside the European Economic Area, whose laws provide for a different standard of protection for your personal data than that provided under English law, shall be made subject to contractual arrangements which will require that your data be processed to at least a standard compliant with the Data Protection Act 1998.
