Privacy Policy

The following statement explains our policy regarding the personal information we collect about you.

  1. Introduction
    This policy covers Winchester College's use of personal information collected when you use visit WinchesterCollege.co.uk. The policy also gives you information about cookies; WINCHESTER COLLEGE and third parties' use of cookies; and how you may reject such cookies.

    From time to time, you will be asked to submit personal information about yourself in order to use parts of our website. Such services include e-mail forwarding, event registration, message boards and WykSoc.com membership.

    By entering your details in the fields requested, you enable Winchester College and its service providers to provide you with the services you select. Whenever you provide such personal information, we will treat that information in accordance with this policy. When using your personal information Winchester College will act in accordance with current legislation and aim to meet current Internet best practice.

  2. Visitor Information
    During the course of any visit to WinchesterCollege.co.uk, the pages you see, along with a short text file called a 'cookie', are downloaded to your computer. Many websites do this, because cookies enable website publishers to do useful things like find out whether the computer (and probably its user) has visited the website before. This is done on a repeat visit by checking to see, and finding, the cookie left there on the last visit.

  3. What is a cookie?
    A cookie is a small amount of data, which often includes an anonymous unique identifier that is sent to your browser from a website's computer and stored on your computer's hard drive. Each website can send its own cookie to your browser if your browser's preferences allow it, but (to protect your privacy) your browser only permits a web site to access the cookies it has already sent to you, not the cookies sent to you by other sites.

    Many sites do this whenever a user visits their website in order to track online traffic flows.

    Cookies record information about your online preferences. Users have the opportunity to set their computers to accept all cookies, to notify them when a cookie is issued, or not to receive cookies at any time. The last of these, of course, means that certain personalised services cannot then be provided to that user and accordingly you may not be able to take full advantage of all of WinchesterCollege.co.uk features. Each browser is different, so check the "Help" menu of your browser to learn how to change your cookie preferences.

    If you have set your computer to reject cookies you can still browse WinchesterCollege.co.uk anonymously until such time as you wish to register for WinchesterCollege.co.uk services.

  4. Use and storage of your personal information
    When you supply any personal information to WinchesterCollege.co.uk (e.g. for WykSoc.com membership) we have legal obligations towards you in the way we use those data. We must collect the information fairly, that is, we must explain how we will use it and tell you if we want to pass the information on to anyone else.

    In general, any information you provide to Winchester College will only be used within Winchester College and by its agents and service providers. Your information will be disclosed where we are obliged or permitted by law. Also, if you post or send offensive, inappropriate or objectionable content anywhere on or to WinchesterCollege.co.uk or otherwise engage in any disruptive behaviour on WinchesterCollege.co.uk, Winchester College can use whatever information that is available to it about you to stop such behaviour. This may involve informing relevant third parties such as your employer, school e-mail/Internet provider and law enforcement agencies about the content and your behaviour.

    We will hold your personal information on our systems for as long as you use the service you have requested, and remove it in the event that the purpose has been met, or, in the case of WykSoc.com membership, you no longer wish to continue your registration as a WinchesterCollege.co.uk member. For safety reasons, however, Winchester College may store messaging transcript data (including message content, member names, times and dates) arising from the use of WykSoc.com services such as e-mail forwarding for a period of six months. Where personal information is held for people who are not yet registered but have supplied information, that information will be held as long as is necessary to ensure that the service is run smoothly. We will ensure that all personal information supplied is held securely, in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998.

  5. Access to your personal information
    You have the right to request a copy of the personal information Winchester College holds about you and to have any inaccuracies corrected. (We charge £10 for information requests.) Please address requests to the Data Protection Officer, The Bursary, Winchester College, 7 College Street, Winchester, Hampshire SO23 9NA.

  6. Confidentiality Statement
    All data saved on the Win Coll Soc's database is held securely and will be treated as confidential and for the sole benefit of the Society, its members and Winchester College. The data is available to the Win Coll Soc office, and upon appropriate application from its membership, to recognised societies, sports and other clubs associated with the School. Data is used for a full range of alumni activities, including the distribution of Winchester College Society and School publications, notification of events and the promotion of any benefits and services that may be available. Data may also be used in the School's fundraising programmes, but will never be passed to external commerical or other organisations, or sold on auction sites.

  7. Use of photographs
    Photographs will be taken at events and may be displayed on our Win Coll Soc website and in other School media. Please let our photographer know if you do not wish to have your photograph taken for this purpose.
