The Montessori De Sagrada Familia, Inc., is committed to protect the personal privacy of its stakeholders, including its prospective and existing students and teachers. It is the policy of the school that information collected from its stakeholders be stored, maintained, and used by the School only for appropriate, necessary, and clearly defined purposes, and that such information be controlled and safeguarded in order to ensure the protection of personal privacy to the extent permitted by law.


To be consistent with data protection laws, we ask you to take a moment to review the key points in this privacy policy. By availing of the school’s services, you consent to use of your data under this privacy policy.


Information we collect

We collect relevant personal information online through the Pre-registration, Reservation and Enrollment Forms. Likewise, we collect supporting documents submitted in electronic or printed forms (e.g., copies of report cards, birth certificates, proof of payment, etc.).


Why we process your child’s data

We use your child’s personal data, to determine your eligibility for admission to any of the programs offered by MDSF. We also utilize your child’s data for information dissemination, marketing and promotion purposes, educational research and institutional quality assurance purposes, such as in establishing trends in admission to our programs in order to inform our decisions on future program offerings, plans and projected resource needs.


How we process your child’s data

We may use your personal information to contact you on matters pertaining to your application for admission. We determine your individual eligibility for admission to your program of choice by evaluating your child’s credentials and school records against our program standards.


We conduct data analytics of all admission data annually for the purposes mentioned above and we compare aggregate data with those of previous years to compare trends. We may conduct predictive and prescriptive analytics for future decision-making regarding our program offerings. These aggregate analyses do not identify your child individually.


We retain depersonalized information after qualified applicants have already enrolled. This information feeds models for 10-year predictive and prescriptive analyses for future decision-making.


However, we retain names and email addresses of those who have not qualified for admission so we can utilize such data in future planning, program improvements and marketing efforts.


How we share information

The Office of the Registrar is the Personal Information Controller (PIC) of all admissions-related data. The said office may share your child’s personal information with academic and non-academic units and they may contact you on matters pertaining to your enrollment at MDSF.


With the permission of the Data Protection Officer (DPO), subject to compliance with research ethics and data privacy, the school registrar may share your child’s depersonalized information to academic researchers who may request for such, instituting measures that will not allow you to be individually identified.


We may need to share your child’s data when we believe it is required by law or to protect your child’s and our rights, welfare, and security. We may likewise need to share your child’s data if required by regulatory agencies such as the Department of Education (DepEd), the Local Government Unit of Baliwag (LGU) or by local and international accrediting agencies (e.g., PAASCU, PEAC), as part of the monitoring and/or evaluation process.


Once your child qualifies for admission, his/her personal information will be shared with the Office of the Registrar so you will only need to provide additional information necessary for enrollment.


Your choices and obligations

You have the option not to grant use of your personal information for institutional marketing purposes or for research done by individuals or groups outside of institutional research purposes by unticking the options below.


You have the obligation to ensure the completeness and accuracy of all information provided to the School. Provision of fraudulent information, if proven to be deliberate, may prevent your child from being admitted to the School.


Other important information

We implement security safeguards designed to protect your data. We regularly monitor our systems for possible vulnerabilities and attacks, and apply necessary measures to protect your data.


You may contact us through the Office of the Registrar to communicate any concerns you may have regarding our privacy policy.
