Privacy Policy


Use of Personal Information

Access International Academy Ningbo (AIAN) is committed to protecting your privacy.  AIAN will not collect any personal information unless you voluntarily provide it by sending us an e-mail, participating in a survey, or completing an online form.  Personal information submitted will not be transferred to any non-affiliated third parties unless otherwise stated at the time of collection.  When a user submits personally-identifiable information, it is used only for the purpose stated at the time of collection.



Where consent for the use and disclosure of personal information is required, the school will seek consent from the appropriate person.  In the case of a student's personal information, the school will seek the consent from the parent(s)/guardian(s) depending on the circumstances of the proposed use and disclosure.



AIAN's website, similar to other standard websites, tracks Web browsing patterns to understand how the website is being used.  This "generic" information is collected through the use of "cookies," which are text files placed on your computer to "remember" your preferences such as calendar settings and site bookmarks on the website from visit to visit, or to maintain your "logged in" status when visiting password-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.


Log Files

Like most website servers, this website uses statistical packages to analyze trends in how the website is accessed and utilized.  Information monitored includes Internet protocol (IP) addresses, geographic location of visitors (country, city), browser type, Internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, platform type, date/time stamp, time spent on pages, and keywords used to find our site via search engines.  This information is anonymous and cannot be directly linked to individual users.  We may use it to identify high-use or low-use areas of the site, pinpoint problem areas of the site, analyze broad demographic trends in our visitors, and make decisions about how to make it easier for people to find and navigate our website.


External Links

This website may contain links to external websites not owned by, or officially affiliated with, the school in any way.  Please be aware that AIAN is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such other websites.  We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our website and to read the privacy statements of each and every website that collects personally-identifiable information.  This Privacy Policy applies solely to information collected by this website.  All members of the AIAN school community are expected to adhere to the AIAN Digital Citizenship and Acceptable Usage Policy.


Data Security

Whenever users submit personal information (such as contact or payment information) via online forms, registration, or online payment, that information, upon submission, will be encrypted via the highest level of SSL (Secured Sockets Layer) available.  Servers that store personally-identifiable information are in a secure environment.


Non-Secured Communications

Posts to any discussion forums and boards, including comments associated with AIAN blogs and videos posted on the school's website, are viewable by other users.  Postings in a non-password-protected area such as these may be viewable by the general public.


Amendments to Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy shall not be construed as a contractual promise, and AIAN reserves the right to update and amend this Privacy Policy at any time without notice.
