Information collection

Registering a Prom

In order to become a Myschool Proms user, one of your Prom Committee members will need to create a prom page (and possibly a school page if it is the first event for your school) on this web site. To create an account you are required to provide the following contact information: name, email address, address, post code and then choose a password.

User profiles

Once a Prom Committee has created their prom page, students may link their profiles to the prom page. This service is only available to students at that school. The Prom Committee members have the right to remove any students who they determine should not have access to the prom page.

Cookies & Log Files

Like most web sites; Myschool Proms uses cookies and web log files to track site usage. A cookie is a tiny data file that resides on your computer, which allows Myschool Proms to recognise you as a user when you return to our site using the same computer and web browser. Unfortunately, if your browser settings do not allow cookies, you will not be able to use our website. Like the information you enter at registration or in your Profile, cookie and log file data is used to customise your experience on the web site.

One type of cookie, known as a “persistent” cookie, is set once you’ve logged in to your Myschool Proms account. The next time you visit the Myschool Proms web site, the persistent cookie will allow us to recognise you as an existing user so you will not need to log in before using the service. In order to access or change any of your private information, however, you must log in securely again with your password even if your computer contains your persistent cookie. Additionally, if you log out of the Myschool Proms site you will need to re-enter your password the next time you visit in order to log in to your account.

Another type of cookie, called a “session” cookie, is used to identify a particular visit to the Myschool Proms site. Session cookies expire after a short time or when you close your web browser. Due to the communications standards on the Internet, when you visit the Myschool Proms web site we automatically receive the URL of the site from which you came and the site to which you are going when you leave Myschool Proms. We also receive the Internet protocol (IP) address of your computer (or the proxy server you use to access the World Wide Web), your computer operating system and type of web browser you are using, as well as the name of your ISP. This information is used to analyse overall trends to help us improve the Myschool Proms service. The linkage between your IP address and your personally identifiable information is never shared with third parties without your permission, except when required by law.

Age policy

Only persons aged 14 and over may create a profile on Myschool Proms.

Information Sharing

Myschool Proms takes the privacy of our users very seriously. We will never sell, rent or otherwise provide your personally identifiable information to any third parties for marketing purposes. We will only share your personally identifiable information with third parties to carry out your instructions and to provide specific services.

These third parties do not retain, share, or store any personally identifiable information except to provide these services and are bound by strict confidentiality agreements which limit their use of such information.

We may provide aggregated data about the usage of our services to third parties for such purposes as we deem, in our sole discretion, to be appropriate. We may segment our users by role (i.e. product managers, managing directors), industry, and geographic location. If you would like to be excluded from the aggregated research or products based upon aggregated data about our users’ activities on the site, please email customer service. customerservice@myschoolproms.co.uk

All retained data will continue to be subject to the terms of the Myschool Proms Privacy Policy that you have previously agreed to.
