Our Website

If through a channel of contact you are forwarded to another site or organisation, Solar Schools is not responsible for the privacy practices or content of that site or organisation. Our website uses 'cookies' which is a packet of information that allows the server (the computer that houses the web site) to identify and interact more effectively with your computer.

We do not use cookies to track your internet activity before or after you leave the Solar Schools website. No other company has access to our cookies. The Solar Schools website has added security by using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology. This means that information you send is encrypted by your computer, and then decrypted again on our side, preventing others from accessing your private information in between.

We may alter this privacy statement as a result of changes in the law or as our business requirements change. Any changes to this privacy statement will be updated on www.solarschools.net.
