Privacy Policy

The Mountain West Montessori Academy website (hereafter the website) is the property of Mountain West Montessori Academy (MWMA) and was developed by Eminent Technical Solutions LLC (ETS). Both MWMA and ETS take your privacy very seriously and have ensured that the website protects that privacy and observes the guidance of the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA).

The website is intended for consumption by parents and guardians of students who attend Mountain West Montessori Academy, as well as those students. While MWMA and ETS recognize that the application may hold some value for other individuals and/or organizations, it is the intended audience to which this privacy policy is catered.

The website collects information from you in three scenarios: (1) the contact form, (2) the excuse absence form, and (3) blog subscriptions. Each of these scenarios are treated in more detail herein.

The Contact Form

Use of the contact form is voluntary. The contact form collects three data fields intended to be your name, your email address, and a message from you to the school. The information you submit in these fields is delivered via email to a Mountain West Montessori Academy email address. The information passes through, but is not stored on, the website server.

The Excuse Absence Form

Use of the excuse absence form is voluntary. The contact form collects eight data fields intended to be a parent’s name, the same parent’s email address, the same parent’s phone number, the date on which the parent’s student missed school, the student’s teacher, the student’s grade, and a reason for the absence. The information you submit in these fields is delivered via email to a Mountain West Montessori Academy email address. The information passes through, but is not stored on, the website server.

Blog Subscriptions

The website features several “blogs.” For example, the School News page (https://www.mwmacademy.org/blogs/1) and teacher blogs linked to from the Faculty & Staff page (https://www.mwmacademy.org/our_team). Each of these blogs features a subscription form to which you can submit your email address to received notification when something new is posted to the blog. Email addresses submitted in this fashion are stored on the website server and are used automatically for the intended purpose. MWMA and ETS have access to the stored email addresses. MWMA reserves the right to use the stored email addresses to deliver school-related information to parents and students by means other than automatic delivery of information via the website. ETS only accesses the stored email addresses for the purposes of supporting the website operation and/or MWMA’s specific needs.

Cookies

The website uses cookies for security purposes. The cookies used do not include any personal information. The cookies are essentially used to ensure that a third party has not interfered with communication between your browser and the website.

Other Security Measures

The entire website has been secured with HTTPS. HTTPS encrypts all communication between your browser and the website server. HTTPS also allows your browser to verify that it is communicating with the actual Mountain West Montessori Academy website, as opposed to some other entity on the Internet that is impersonating the website.
