Welcome to the Lakefield College School website (the “Website”). Access to the public content and services of the Website is generally available, while access to the private content and services of the Website is provided to you, if you are a student, an alumnus, a trustee, a parent of an enrolled or former student, or in some cases if you are a relative, guardian or consultant for an enrolled student.
The Website is primarily designed to help maintain the relationship between you and Lakefield College School (the “School”). Some modules of the Website have more specific purposes, such as the eRegistration system which is designed to simplify the process for securely gathering personal information and consent with regards to students and the services offered by the School; or the Online Learning Centre which is designed to provide detailed personal academic information for current students and their parents.
In accessing, linking to, or using the Website, you agree to not knowingly:
By posting, publishing, uploading, or distributing any messages, data, information, text, graphics, links, content, or other materials (collectively, “Postings”) via or for use on the Website, you grant (or warrant that the owner of such rights has expressly granted) the School a perpetual, worldwide, royalty-free, irrevocable, non-exclusive right and license, with the right to sublicense, to use, reproduce, modify, adapt, publish, publicly perform, publicly display, digitally display and digitally perform, translate, create derivative works from and distribute such Postings or incorporate such Postings into any form, medium, or technology now known or later developed anywhere. You agree that you shall have no recourse against the School for any alleged or actual infringement or misappropriation of any proprietary right in Postings you provide to the School.
By creating Postings, you agree that you do so at your own risk, and understand that the School does not guarantee that Postings will not be viewed by unauthorized users. You understand and acknowledge that, even after removal, copies of your Postings may remain viewable in cached and archived pages, or if other visitors to the Website have copied or stored your Postings.
The School may collect user information from the Website (for example, via a username, an IP address or cookies, which are alphanumeric identifiers transmitted from our website to a visitor’s browser and then back to our website unchanged). This information is used to provide you with a customized online experience and to find ways to improve our site. Although cookies are widely used, it may be possible to disable cookies via your browser settings. However, if you do, the Website may not function properly or optimally.
The Website allows you to enter personal information, for example, to inquire about admission, to post a profile, or to send messages. Your provision of such information constitutes your agreement to allow the School to use the information to provide the services of the Website and to maintain our relationship with you.
One of the purposes of the eRegistration System module of the Website (typically used by parents of enrolled students), is to gather personal information with regards to students and the services offered by the School. As such, when using the eRegistration System, you agree to the collection, storage and use of this information including its use by third parties in certain situations. Most of the information is for internal use by the School, but as noted in various parts of the eRegistration System, some of the information may be shared with health insurance providers, government agencies, banks, other schools, health care professionals and other third parties. If you have any questions about what specific information will be shared, please contact the individual or office listed on each document presented by the eRegistration System.
When using the eRegistration System, you agree also to provide true, accurate, current and complete information on all documents presented by the eRegistration System, and to promptly update the School as necessary to keep the information true, accurate, current and complete during the time at which the student listed on the documents is enrolled with the School.
Another purpose of the eRegistration System module of the Website (typically used by parents of enrolled students), is to collect your consent, permission and agreement on electronic documents. You agree that the signature affixed to electronic documents in the eRegistration System by a user of your Account constitutes proof that you have signed the document and entered into a binding agreement with the School. That signature may take the form of entering the word “agree” or “yes”, or clicking “I Agree” or some similar mechanism contained in the user interface of the eRegistration System. You agree to be fully responsible for all obligations arising from and any damages occasioned by the use of your Account, regardless of whether the use was intended or authorized by yourself.
To help ensure your identity is secure, and any use of the eRegistration System is authorized by yourself, your username is linked to one primary email address (“Primary Email”). All documents completed online are sent to this primary email address for your records. If you feel a document has been completed in error, please contact the Admissions Office within 24 hours.
As a user of the Website, you agree that you are responsible for managing the security and privacy of any computers and Internet software you use to access the Website, and, for eRegistration System users, the security and privacy of your Primary Email account. If given an Account, you agree also to maintain the confidentiality of your Account password, and to send notice to the School within 24 hours if your password is compromised. As a user of the Website, you acknowledge that the Internet is a worldwide network of computers, and that while information is encrypted by your Internet browser before transmission to many modules of the Website, it must necessarily route via third-party computers to the School, and as such, the School is not responsible for lapses in online security and does not assume liability for damages or loss of privacy occasioned by any breaches in security.
You acknowledge that the School has the right, but no obligation, to monitor the Website and Postings made by users on the Website or to disclose any information necessary to operate the Website, in order to protect the School, third parties, or members of the School’s community, and to comply with legal obligations or governmental requests. The School reserves the right, in its sole and absolute discretion, to monitor and edit Postings, remove them, and cause them not to be posted, published, uploaded or distributed at any time and for any reason or no reason. The School reserves the right to refuse to post or to remove any information on the Website, in whole or in part, for any reason. The School reserves the right to change the Website at any time at its sole discretion without notice to users. The School may deny access to the Website to anyone at any time for any reason whatsoever.
You agree to comply with all governmental laws, statutes, ordinances, and regulations regarding your use of the Website. You may not use the Website to do business with the School if you are not of legal age to form a binding contract with the School. You may not use the Website if you are a person who has been barred by the School from using the Website or who is otherwise disqualified from using the Website under the laws of Canada or other countries (including the country in which you are resident or from which you use the Website).
