King’s Website Privacy Policy and Use of Cookies


The King’s website uses various analytics companies to help analyse how visitors use this site. These companies use “cookies” to collect standard internet log information and visitor behaviour information in an anonymous form. No personally identifiable information is collected about you unless you explicitly submit that information via a fill – in form on this website. So if we need personal info from you – for example your email address to register for events, or to add a blog comment – we will ask for it and you will have the option to provide it or not.

The anonymous information generated by these cookies about your use of this website (including your IP address) is transmitted to the company. This information is then processed to compile statistical reports on website activity for kingschester.co.uk only. We use these reports to evaluate aggregate visitor usage so that we can optimise the content, and its marketing, to better meet your needs.

We will not link, or seek to link, an IP address with the identity of a computer user. In fact, we will not associate any data gathered from this site with any personally identifiable information from any source, unless you explicitly submit that information via a fill – in form. The external companies will not associate your IP address with any other data held by them. In summary, your anonymity is safe.

When Personal Information is submitted

If you have registered for events, submitted a blog comment or used the contact form, your name and email address and potentially other non – specific demographic information is requested (for example, your language preference, gender and location). We do this firstly to ensure you are not a robot or spammer, and secondly because the more information we have on actual people (as opposed to cookies), the better we can understand what content is of interest to readers. If at any time you wish your personal information to be removed from this site, simply use the contact form and email the Bursar; we will carry out your request at the earliest opportunity. Note that in removing your personal details all your associated content is deleted – such as any blog comments you may have made.

3rd Party Tracking cookies

Third party cookies are used on our articles when you press any of the share icons underneath the item. Once shared, the cookies belong to the third – party of the sharing location (e.g. Twitter, Google, Facebook etc). These cookies are no longer controlled by The King’s School. If you wish to use these social tools to share articles, our advice is to set your browser always to block 3rd – party cookies. The sharing icons will still work, but no visitor data is sent to the third parties.
