Montessori in Redlands Inc (“MIR,” "we," "us") maintains a database of alumni, friends, supporters, current parents, the current Board of Trustees, current faculty and staff, previous Board of Trustees, and previous faculty and staff in order to stay in touch with our community and keep you updated about news, events, career initiatives, and fundraising activities.
Some of our database (but not all) choose to join our online community by registering on this website and creating an online profile. In both instances (individuals with offline database records and individuals with online profiles), we collect and store personal information (or “data”) about you. We are committed to protecting and respecting your privacy and this Policy sets out what information we collect about you, where and how we use (“process”) it.
We may change this Policy from time to time. If we make any significant changes we will advertise this on the website or contact you directly with the information. Please check this page occasionally to make sure you are happy with any changes.
If you have any questions about this Policy or concerning your personal information, please contact email@example.com or call the office at 909-793-6989.

Updating your consent preferences
If you have an online profile on this website you can update your consent options by logging in and clicking on “My Settings” in your profile. Scroll down to find your ‘Consent options’ where you will see a list of consents and the options “opt-in,” “opt-out,” and “unspecified”.
Via ‘My Settings’ you can also choose to hide your profile from Google, limit access to your profile so that it’s only viewable to your connections, and adjust some of the automatic notifications that you receive from this website. Please note that your name (but not full profile) may appear in various places around the community website, such as a ‘Recent Joiners’ box and in ‘Search’ results irrespective of the privacy settings you have selected.
If we are using consent as our legal basis for processing your data, we must have an explicit “opt-in” from you for this specific type of processing.
If we are using legitimate interests as our legal basis for processing your data, we will process your data responsibly in a way that you would reasonably expect, and you can opt out at any stage.
If you click ‘unsubscribe’ at the bottom of one of our emails sent, you will be automatically opted out of these types of email communications in the future.

How we keep your information safe
We understand the importance of keeping your personal information secure, and we take appropriate steps to safeguard it.
Your data is stored on a dedicated, secure cloud server hosted by Amazon Web Services (AWS) in the EU and managed by our website provider, ToucanTech. Industry-standard firewalls, anti-virus, encryption, and backup methods are in place, as well as strict data handling protocols.
We always ensure only authorized persons have access to your information, which means only our approved employees and contractors, and that everyone who has access is appropriately trained in data management.
If you have an online profile for this website, you are responsible for keeping your login details (email and password) confidential and we ask that you do not share your password with anyone.
No data transmission over the internet can be guaranteed to be completely secure. So, while we strive to safeguard your information, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you provide online and you do this at your own risk.
Who has access to your information?
Other than this, we will not share your information with other organizations without your consent.
Keeping your information up to date
Please let us know if your contact details change by emailing email@example.com. We will update our various systems as required.
A cookie is a small text file stored by your browser that allows the website to “remember” your preferences (such as calendar settings and site bookmarks) on the site from visit to visit, or to maintain your “logged in” status when visiting protected areas. Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information while on our site. Web browsers have settings allowing you to reject cookies, selectively accept cookies, or delete cookies previously accepted. Please be aware that rejecting or deleting cookies from our website may make certain functions unavailable to you.
The law states that we can store cookies on your machine if they are essential to the operation of the website, but that for all others we need your permission to do so.
The list below explains the cookies we use and why:
|Used to remember you as you travel from page to page in a single session (without leaving the website) in order to provide a continuous and unified experience|

Use of aggregated data
Where data can be aggregated and anonymized, our website provider (ToucanTech) might use this for research purposes without restriction. For example, they may monitor traffic patterns, site usage, response rates, and data trends to help make improvements to the website software. They are entitled to do this because the resulting data will not personally identify you and will therefore no longer constitute personal data for the purposes of data protection laws.
