Personally Identifiable Information/ Non-Personally Identifiable Information
The term "personally identifiable information" refers to information that tells us specifically who you are, such as your name, phone number, email or postal address. The amount of personally identifiable information that you choose to disclose to Gilmour is completely up to you. The only way we obtain personally identifiable information about you is if you provide it to us in conjunction with using one of the services we make available through the Site. In operating the Site, Gilmour may also collect non-personally identifiable information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as your Internet Protocol (IP) address, browser type, language preference, referring site and date and time of each visitor request. Generally, the purpose in collecting information of this nature is to better understand how visitors find and use the Site, and how the Site, access to the Site or the scope of services offered on the Site can be improved. Gilmour reserves the right to release or disclose non-personally identifiable information from time to time.

Additional Circumstances Where Information May be Disclosed
In addition to the above, Gilmour reserves the right to disclose personally identifiable information to appropriate third parties in instances where it is required to do so by law or we believe that such action is necessary. Situations or circumstances of this nature include the following:
- To comply with legal process such as a search warrant, subpoena or court order;
- To comply with the USA Patriot Act;
- To protect the School’s rights and property or defend against legal claims;
- To protect any other party's rights, property, and safety;
- To report to any law enforcement agency any activity that we, in good faith, believe to be unlawful;
- To investigate, prevent or take action regarding illegal activity, suspected fraud, situations involving harassment, abusive messages or potential threats to the physical safety of any person;
- To protect against misuse or unauthorized use of our Site; or
- During emergencies, such as when we believe someone's safety is at risk
Privacy of Children
The Children's Online Privacy Protection Act requires that we never knowingly collect personally identifiable information from children under the age of 13 without prior verifiable parental consent. Gilmour requires that all parents and legal guardians of students under the age of 13 review and sign an authorization form each year that will permit us to collect and maintain personally identifiable information about their children. In instances where we discover that we have inadvertently received unauthorized personal information from a child under the age of 13, we will delete such information unless we have received verifiable consent from that child's parent or legal guardian to keep it.
Gilmour may collect personal information from students when they use their school e-mail account. Students will not have, or be able to use, a school e-mail account without our having a current parental authorization form. Where a student corresponds with us via e-mail, we may store, process and use any personally identifiable information contained therein to communicate with the student and/or his parent or legal guardian, to address technical issues with the student's e-mail account or access to the internet or network, to update our records or perform other administrative functions. We may retain the student's e-mail messages together with his e-mail address and our responses. We may provide the collected information to employees, agents or service providers acting on Gilmour's behalf in connection with these activities subject to the same limitations and exceptions noted above in the sections entitled "Use and Disclosure of Information" and "Additional Circumstances Where Information May be Disclosed".
In addition, Gilmour may disclose such child's personally identifiable information if you, as parent or legal guardian, direct us to do so. A parent or legal guardian may request that Gilmour not disclose personal information about their children to third parties, except as described in the section above entitled "Additional Circumstances Where Information May be Disclosed ". If so desired, you may also review your child's personal information, ask to have it deleted and refuse to allow any further collection or use of the child's information. If you wish to take any of the foregoing actions, please see "How to Contact Us" below for information on how to contact Gilmour.
