Privacy notice

The Independent Schools Council (ISC) is a membership association made up of schools within membership of one of the five Heads’ associations. ISC is a not-for-profit company limited by guarantee, registered with Companies House (registered number 1103760).

This privacy notice is intended to cover images of identifiable individuals displayed on ISC’s websites, social media, printed publications and press releases.

What we collect and what we use it for

Images of individuals may be used by ISC to promote the ISC, the independent school sector, ISC associations, schools or groups.

Sharing your data

Images will be visible on ISC’s websites and potentially in printed publications, social media, press releases and blogs (where relevant consents have been given). Beyond this, we will not share your images with others, except where this is required with third party processors for the functionality of ISC’s websites.

Lawful basis under GDPR and retention

ISC is relying on ‘consent’ to publish images of individuals, where they are identifiable, on ISC’s websites. Images will be displayed on ISC’s websites for up to five years or until you ask for them to be removed. If you would like images to be removed, please email web@isc.co.uk or write to the Independent Schools Council, First Floor 27 Queen Anne’s Gate, London SW1H 9BU. ISC's retention policy is available here.
