2. What kind of personal data do we process and why

In essence, we collect and process data of parents/guardians and students of the school, in order for us to provide educational services. For this reason, and in accordance with Greek legislation, we collect data required by said legislation in order to enroll a student in the school, namely:
  • Student ID/passport
  • Parent/guardian ID/passport
  • Phone number
  • Nationality
  • Languages that the student speaks
  • Address
  • VAT number
Moreover, we collect and process data of the users/visitors of our website, only when they provide such data directly, therefore, just visiting the website does not mean that we process your data. However, that may not always be the case in two cases: data collected using cookies and certain data that are collected automatically during your visit, like the IP address of your connection.

2B. Data that you provide us

In order to communicate with you effectively, we collect and process the following data:
  • Name
  • Email address
  • Phone number
  • Physical address
These data are not available publicly, and can only be accessed by administrators.

Legal basis

The main legal basis on processing said data is in order to provide you with answers on questions you may have.

In case you are a parent/guardian of a student of ours, or a former student of ours, we will keep your tax data in accordance with current Greek tax legislation. Moreover, if you are an alumni of ours, or a former student, we will keep your registration records, in addition to your last transcript or report card indefinitely, according to Greek legislation.
