Welcome to the Cambridge Friends School (“CFS”) website (“Website”). The following discloses our information gathering and dissemination practices. By using or accessing the Website, you are accepting the practices described in this Privacy Policy.


Information Gathering


We may use your Internet Protocol (“IP”) address to administer the Website by tracking Website and web page traffic, and by analyzing statistics relating to visitors’ IP addresses. We may also share such information with third party service providers (“Partners”) who operate websites or other systems in conjunction with the Website (“Partner Systems,” which are included under the term “Website”) that you choose to access or otherwise patronize.


The Website or Partners may also use “cookies,” which are text packets sent by the server to a user’s web browser and then sent back unchanged by the user’s browser each time it accesses that server. Cookies are used for authenticating, tracking, and maintaining specific information about users, such as site preferences. We may use a persistent cookie that stores your login ID (but not your password) to make it easier for you to login when you come back to the Website. You can remove or block this cookie using the settings in your browser if you want to disable this feature.


If you register or input personally identifiable information to the Website, you will not be anonymous to us. CFS and Partners may request your e-mail address or mailing address on some of the forms contained on the Website in order to communicate with you, and your provision of such information constitutes your agreement to allow CFS and Partners to contact you. We may also monitor and aggregate data regarding search terms entered into the Website.


When you use the Website, you may set up your personal profile, form relationships, send messages, perform searches and queries, form groups, set up events, download files, and transmit information through various channels. We may collect this information so that we can provide you the service and offer personalized features.


If you post user content to the Website, such as, profiles, messages, notes, text, information, images, photos, listings and other content that you upload, publish or display through the Website, or transmit to or share with other users, you do so at your own risk. CFS cannot control the actions of other users, so we do not guarantee that your user content will not be viewed by unauthorized users. You agree that CFS shall not be responsible for circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures contained on the Website. You understand and acknowledge that, even after removal, copies of your user content may remain viewable in cached and archived pages, or if other users have copied or stored your user content.


By using the Website, you are consenting to have your personal data transferred to and processed in the United States.


Children Under 13


If you are under 13 years of age, you are required to have your parent or guardian register or input personally identifiable information on your behalf. CFS will not contact children under age 13 for marketing purposes without your parent’s permission. CFS will not, as a condition of use of the Website, ask a child under age 13 for more personally identifiable information than is reasonably necessary to use the Website. You agree that CFS shall not be responsible for the actions or inactions of CFS or any Partner.


Information Sharing and Disclosure


CFS does not rent, sell, or share personally identifiable information about users with other people or non-affiliated entities, except to provide our services, or under the following circumstances:


  • We may provide personally identifiable information to Partners for the purpose of administering and hosting Partner Systems and/or communicating with you. If you use a Partner System, the Partner may or may not share this information with other third parties, depending on its own privacy policy. You agree that CFS shall have no liability with regard to any Partner’s use or dissemination of such shared information.
  • We will provide personally identifiable information in response to subpoenas, court orders, or legal process, or to exercise our legal rights or defend legal claims.
  • We will provide personally identifiable information when CFS or any Partner believes it is necessary in order to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person, violations of any CFS or Partner Terms of Use, violation of CFS’s code of conduct, or as otherwise required by law.
  • We reserve the right to transfer information about you if CFS is acquired by or merged with another school or entity.




CFS maintains physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to protect your personally identifiable information. We use commercially reasonable tools and techniques to protect against unauthorized access to the Website. You agree that CFS shall not be liable for CFS’s or any Partner’s security safeguards.




This Privacy Policy does not apply to the practices of websites that may be linked through the Website, for which the user agrees that CFS shall have no liability. Users are encouraged to read linked websites’ privacy policies.
