Privacy Policy


Welcome to Chapin School’s website. Chapin School is committed to respecting and safeguarding your privacy and personal information.

Please read this Privacy Policy carefully since you are accepting our Policy and practices when you use our website.

This Privacy Policy describes the information that Chapin School collects through our website at If you have any questions or concerns about the Privacy Policy, please contact us at

Information Gathering

Current Chapin parents have been issued a password that allows them to access the intranet portion of our website. The password expires when the student is no longer enrolled.

Chapin School may use your computer’s IP (Internet Protocol) address to help diagnose problems with our server and to administer our website by identifying which parts of our site are most heavily used-very much like television ratings that tell the networks how many people tune in to a program-and which portion of our audience comes from within the Chapin School network. An IP address is a set of numbers that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you log in to your internet service provider. Web servers, the computers that provide web pages for viewing, automatically identify your computer by the IP address assigned to it during your session.  In some cases, the school may link IP addresses with personally identifiable information, and may share that information with third-parties but only for the purpose of enforcing the school’s Privacy Policy or law enforcement. This means your user sessions may be tracked, but the users themselves will remain anonymous.

 “Cookies,” which are pieces of information that a website sends to your computer while you are viewing the site, are used by the Chapin School site to allow users to customize the calendars and content they view. Again, no personally identifiable information is exchanged. 

We use your personal data to keep track of you-our alumni, parents, grandparents and other friends-for the purpose of notifying you of events and information relative to Chapin School that may be of interest to you.

We also use the information that has been gathered to tailor site content to user needs and to generate aggregate statistical addresses. Web server logs are retained on a temporary basis and then deleted completely from our system.

We may request your email address or mailing address on some of the forms contained on the site. Whenever we request the identity of a visitor, we will clearly indicate the purpose of the inquiry before the information is requested. Any personal information you share with us, including email or mailing addresses, is kept private. We maintain a strict “No-Spam” policy which means we do not sell, rent or otherwise give your email or mailing address to a third party, except service providers who assist Chapin School in communicating with you. In addition, Chapin School will not send you email that you have asked not to receive; responding to an email you’ve received from the school by addressing it to  with a request to be removed will remove you from that mailing list. 

Students and Prospective Students

If you are under 13 years of age, you must have your parent or guardian register or input personally identifiable information on your behalf. Chapin School will not ask a child under age 13 for more personally identifiable information than is reasonably necessary to use within the Website.


Chapin School uses physical, electronic and procedural safeguards when sending or receiving personal or financial information over the Internet. Unfortunately, no security system, or system of transmitting data over the internet, can be guaranteed to be 100 percent secure. As a result, while we undertake commercially reasonable tools to protect your personally identifiable information, we cannot guarantee the security of our servers, the means by which information is transmitted between your computer and our servers, or any information provided to us or to any third party through or in connection with the website. 

Other Websites and Links

Chapin School’s website may contain links to other websites. Chapin School is not responsible for the privacy practices or anything else having to do with sites that link to or from, and we encourage you to read the privacy policies on linked sites as their standards may be different from ours.

Revision to Privacy Policy

Chapin School reserves the right to update and revise this Privacy Policy at any time. You can determine if this Privacy Policy has been revised since your last visit by referring to the date at the top of the page. 

Terms of Use, Notices and Revisions
Your use of the Website, and any disputes arising from it, is subject to this Privacy Policy. Chapin School may revise this Privacy Policy at any time. Users are encouraged to read this Privacy Policy on a frequent basis.
