Tabor Academy Privacy Policy

Tabor Academy values the privacy of our community members and we created this Privacy Policy to help our community understand our privacy practices. Our Privacy Policy reflects two of the four tenets of Tabor’s mission: to foster care for others and committed citizenship, and to encourage personal responsibility. We strive to develop a transparent working relationship with our community by outlining the information we collect, how and why we collect it, and how we protect privacy in doing so. We ask members of our community to exercise personal responsibility in supporting our privacy goals, which includes, but is not limited to, providing us with accurate and current information, using secure methods when sharing personal information, and keeping login credentials for school-issued accounts secure.
 
If you have any questions about Tabor Academy generally, or this Privacy Policy specifically, please feel free to contact us by sending an email to info@taboracademy.org.
