Privacy and Data Protection

Home from home is committed to protecting and respecting your privacy.

This privacy policy sets out the basis on which your personal data will be processed by us as the data controller of your personal data for the purposes of the Data Protection Act 1998 ("the Act"). Please read the following carefully to understand our views and practices regarding your personal data and how they
will be treated by us.

Information we may collect from you

• Information that you provide by filling in forms on the site. This includes information provided at the time of registration or at the time of posting material or requesting further services. We may also ask you for information when you enter a competition or promotion sponsored by Home from home or when you report a problem with the site.
• If you contact us, we may keep a record of that correspondence.
• Home from home may also ask you to complete surveys that we use for research purposes although you do not have to respond to them.
• Details of your visits to the site and the resources that you access.

IP Addresses and Cookies

We may collect information about your computer including where available your IP address, operating system and browser type for system administration and to report aggregate information to our advertisers. These are data about our users' browsing actions and patterns and do not identify any individual.

For the same reason we may obtain information about your general Internet usage by using a cookie file which is stored on the hard drive of your computer. Cookies contain information that is transferred to your computer's hard drive.

They help us to improve our site and to deliver a better and more personalised service.

• to estimate our audience size and usage pattern;
• to store information about your preferences and so allow us to customise the Site according to your individual interests;
• to speed up your searches;
• to recognise you when you return to the Site.

Please note that our advertisers may also use cookies over which we have no control.

Following recent revisions of the Privacy and Electronic Communications (EC Directive) Regulations 2003 relating to the notification and use of cookies we are currently working towards implementing the new requirements in line with guidance provided by The Information Commissioner’s Office.

Transfer of Personal Data Outside of the EU

The data that we collect from you may be transferred to and stored at a destination outside the European Economic Area where the laws on data protection are not necessarily as strong as they are within the EU.

By submitting your personal data you agree to this transfer. We will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your data is treated securely and in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

Risks Involved in Transmitting Personal Data Over the Internet

Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the Internet is not completely secure. So, whilst Home from home will do its best to protect your personal data, we cannot ensure the security of data transmitted by you to the Site.

Any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information we will use security procedures and features to prevent unauthorised access to it.

Uses made of the information

• to ensure that the Site's content is presented in the most effective manner for you and for your computer;
• to provide you with information, products or services that you request from us or which we feel may interest you;
• to allow you to participate in interactive features of our service where you choose to do so;
• to notify you about changes to our service.

We do not disclose individual information to our advertisers, but we may provide them with aggregate information about our users.

We may also use such aggregate information to help advertisers reach the kind of audience they want to target.

We would comply with our advertisers' wishes by displaying their advertisement to that target audience using the personal data we have collected from you and from others.

Your rights

The site may from time to time contain links to and from partner and/or affiliate websites.

If you follow a link to their sites, please note that these sites have their own privacy policy and that Home from home does not accept any responsibility or liability for protection of personal data which you may submit to a third party's site.

You are recommended to check the wording of the relevant privacy policies before you submit any personal data to those sites.



"Our two boys have been regular attendees at Home from Home Creche and Montessori since 2006 and have really loved every day spent there.

Olivia and her longstanding team run a lovely childcare facility and have reliably cared for our children as if they were their own. We wholeheartedly recommend. "
