Riverbend Playschool considers issues relating to your and your child’s privacy to be a serious mat- ter. At the same time, Riverbend Playschool needs to collect, store, use and disclose personal in- formation to enable it to operate the playschool.
Generally, when we collect, use or disclose personal information relating to you or your child we will obtain your consent. Most of the time, we will obtain your consent before or at the same time we collect personal information relating to you or your child. In some instances, however, we may seek your consent after we have collected personal information if we wish to make an additional use or disclosure of personal information where we do not have your consent for the particular use or disclosure.
Depending on the circumstances, your consent may be express or implied. Express consent would arise if you specifically consented to a particular dealing in personal information. Express consent can be given orally, electronically or in writing. Implied consent can be inferred from the circum- stances. For example, we will assume that we can send correspondence to the address or email ad- dress you provide unless you inform us otherwise. In this example, your address may be personal information.
You may change or withdraw your consent at any time on reasonable notice to us, subject to pre- existing legal and contractual obligations. However, if you withdraw certain consents, it may limit the services we are able to provide to you and your child.
