How do we ensure child protection and security?

It is essential and forefront in our business ethics and principals to take child safety and protection very seriously. To this end, the company may request sensitive information that is necessary to protect the identity of a child at risk of harm.

We will request that you provide the name of children who are subject to a current order where a court has rules that the child is to have zero contact with a particular parent or relative, and that parent or relative is to have no knowledge of the details of the child at risk (an example being a child involved with witness protection). We do not require any details of the situation or any other information in relation to the child except the name. We will not release any images of the child to any person except the school administrators, who can then distribute the images to the appropriate guardian.

You reserve the right to withhold this information, however this means that we will have no ability to separate, and subsequently protect, affected individuals.
