Protecting Your Privacy
Use of Personal Information
Maranatha Christian Academy does not collect any personal information unless you voluntarily provide it by sending us e-mail, participating in a survey, or completing an on-line form. Forms may be used to inquire about admission, submit an enrollment application, register for an event, purchase tickets, register for an extracurricular activity, update alumni information, or process philanthropic donations. 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.
Security of your personal information
Maranatha Christian Academy takes all reasonable precautions to protect your personal information from loss, unauthorized access, modification and unauthorized disclosure. MCA maintains a Privacy & Security Breach Response Plan.
Disclosure to Third Parties
Where consent for the use and disclosure of personal information is required, the school will seek consent from the appropriate person. Maranatha Christian Academy will generally seek the consent of the student’s parents / guardian and will treat consent given by the parent / guardian as consent given on behalf of the student.
Consent for the Use of Student Photos and Video Images
For internal circulation: for the purpose of praising and promoting the efforts of students or the school, Maranatha Christian Academy does not require consent.
For external situations: Enrolled families consent to have their child(ren)'s likeness used in external publications, i.e. for direct marketing or off-campus promotion. MCA requires specific "opt-out" notification if a family would like every effort for their child(ren)'s likeness to be withheld from such publications. Updates to authorization are requested annually from families via available online form, with submissions required for the current school year by September 15th of the current school year. See below form. (Please note you are required to sign in with your MCA provided email to verify identity.)
Any photos or video taken by families must be for personal use only and not posted in any public places outside of the school.
Ensuring Accurate Information
The first step in data security is correct information. Maranatha Christian Academy takes all reasonable precautions to ensure that the personal information we collect, use and disclose, is accurate, complete and up to date. MCA families should review annually their demographic, registration and financial information and update all changes to personal information, such as your name and address, and consent for use of images for off campus promotion.
Personal Information Access
You have a right to access your personal information, subject to some exceptions allowed by law. If you would like to do so, please let us know. You may be required to put your request in writing for security reasons.
