We collect and process personal data which you voluntarily provide by sending us an email, applying for a job, accepting an offer of employment, participating in a survey, completing an online form, or enrolling yourself or your children in our school or one of our related services such as the cafeteria or transport.
We create and process personal data files about our current and future students, clients and alumni in order to evaluate and deal with their registration and admission as well as to manage any subsequent contractual relationship with the concerned data subject or their legal representative(s).
We create and process personal data files about job applicants and our current employees for the purposes of recruiting and the management of the subsequent employment relationship.
All personal data collection and analysis is done in compliance with both the applicable Swiss and European data protection laws and the corresponding data are treated confidentially.
We will only share personal data with affiliates for the purposes of conducting the activities and business of the school and provision of related services. The personal data collected will not be disclosed to third parties without the prior consent of the data subject or their legal representative(s).
Consent to Personal Data Processing
By providing data to the International School of Lausanne (hereafter ‘ISL’), you confirm that pursuant to the provision of Article 4 (11) of the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation UE 2016/679) in force as of May 25, 2018, ISL, with its registered seat at Chemin de la Grangette 2, Le Mont-sur-Lausanne, 1052 Switzerland, as a data controller, may process and subsequently use or further communicate your personal data for the purposes of conducting its educational business and activities and for sending communications related to the school and its associated services. This consent is also considered as the consent to send electronic mail messages and SMS messages under the GDPR provisions.
At the same time you agree that the controller may also process your personal data through a data processor under the terms and conditions set out by the GDPR. The consent is provided for an unlimited period until it is revoked.
In some circumstances we are legally obliged to share information. For example under a court order or where we cooperate with other European or Swiss supervisory authorities in handling complaints or investigations. We might also share information with other regulatory bodies in order to comply with their, or our, objectives. In these cases we will satisfy ourselves that we have a lawful basis on which to share the information and document our decision making.
